Are your kids safe online? We all know there are very real dangers waiting for teenagers online, yet most of us think those will never happen to our kids. Cyber-bullying? My 13-year-old son streaming adult content or sending the pictures of his groin to some girl he met on line just two hours ago? Nope, that’s not us. How about your daughter posting innocently looking pictures of herself wearing not much more than her long school socks and a t-shirt on Facebook or Instagram? Still not your problem? Unless you live somewhere with no access to the internet, you better read on.Posted May 31, 2013
Following the string of hacks that happened to Twitter and Facebook this year, we thought it would be handy to update you guys on the action plan in this kind of situations.Posted May 28, 2013
Lets get it out of the way at the beginning: I have never lost my phone. I always keep it next to me, never leave it on the tables in bars or restaurants in case someone walks past and grabbs it. I don’t carry it in my back pocket in case it falls out of it. I have all sorts of tracking software activated in case it goes missing. I never leave my phone in the car. Having my mobile lost is a foreign situation for me. I look down at people who regularly post Facebook status updates claiming they now need everyones contact details since they lost their phone. I don’t feel sorry for them, they should have been more careful. I have my smug face on sparing no pity at all.Posted May 23, 2013
Blogging is not just for Christmas. There are many, many dead blogs around and only a few make it and reach the stardom of regular flow of followers and readers. Do you think you have what it takes to create interesting content on regular basis? Great! That’s a start. Now the dilema: which medium should you use? The “Tumblr or WordPress” debate seems to be going on in the interwebby universe for quite a while now, so I will try to shed a light on the dilema by comparing a standard Tumblr blog and a self hosted WordPress site.Posted May 21, 2013
The internet is trembling with fear as the uncool Yahoo! purchased the coolest blogging platform on the internet: Tumblr. If you had a chance to spend any time with anyone under 20, you have probably heard of Tumblr. It’s a great platform to share fashion tips and the best finds from across the web, because of its simplicity. Could it be more than just a place for teens to hang out and share pics of their new hair styles and nail art? Absolutely.
This month we have introduced backup for Tumblr. It creates a copy of your text posts, photos, videos and quotes you add to the site, and we are currently working on the ability to add the backup for the reblogged content. The reason behind adding this service was simple: Tumblr is one of the easiest to start and maintain microblogging services around and a great start if you are thinking of writing your own blog. If it’s good enough for the White House – it’s good enough for us. For all of you, who are not yet partial to this blogging phenomenon: here’s a simple guide to Tumblr.Posted May 20, 2013
If you ever thought about committing social suicide aka quitting Facebook, you may as well do it in style. Social Roulette, an app based on the principle of the Russian Roulette, was launched on Saturday and shut on the same day. It offered anyone who is tired of the overload of news, the constant battle of egos and friends’ lunch photos in their stream a way out. Players of Social Roulette had a chance to pull the trigger once a day for a one in six chances to have their Facebook account wiped out should they land on a bullet. Five out of six times, the app just posts “I played Social Roulette and survived” to your timeline.Posted May 16, 2013
For some of us Facebook is the source of information, a dating site, ego stroking mediu and the best friend. Doctors went as far as diagnosing constant need for social connection as an addiction. After years of being our default homepage, we can now see a pattern when it comes to the types of people on Facebook and personalities taking the center stage on our favourite social platform. What type of people do we follow? Which one of those personalities are you?Posted May 16, 2013
We have all seen the drama unveiled when HMV’s social media manager live-tweeted the embarrassing moments that followed when sixty of their employees have been fired at once. As the only person with an access to the companies’ Twitter account, he opened the doors to the real HMV. Anything from: “..60 of us being fired at once! Mass execution..” to the hash tag “#hmvXFactorFiring.”
This is the PR nightmare none of us wants to experience. Why then would we give someone who hasn’t got much of a brand loyalty the key to our brand’s voice?Posted May 14, 2013
The weather outside looks almost summery and school holidays are just around the corner. Most of us are looking to get away, maybe you even have your holidays booked already. In the globally connected world, hackers are getting smarter and more efficient every day and we need to find the way to maximize the use of wi-fi spots whilst travelling, without compromising our private data and online security. It can be very tempting to sign in to just any hot spot in order to save on the exorbitant international roaming charges on our smart phones or laptops.Posted May 13, 2013
It’s that time of the year again when we are searching the internet for the presents for our mums.
