Instagram say – We are NOT going to sell your photos and WE do not own them!

By | December 18th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , |

There was a storm caused today on the internet, with people saying they are not going to use instragram anymore over changes to their privacy policy posted on the instagram blog yesterday, that they are going to cancel their accounts.  It was said everywhere that Instagram now own your photos and could sell your images to advertisers, they say this is not true. People are confused and upset say Instagram Instagram insist that they are NOT going to use our photos in advertisements and that Instagram does not have any ownership right over your photos either. You own your own instagram photos.  They say that they worded this badly and they are glad that they didn't intend to make any changes for 30 days so that they can change the wording so that it is clearer in the document. http://blog.instagram.com/post/38252135408/thank-you-and-were-listening The language we proposed also raised question about whether your photos can be part of an advertisement. We do not have plans for anything like this and because of that we’re going to remove the language that raised the question. Ownership [...]

Need an honest opinion? Ask Opinionaided.

By | November 12th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Opinionaided is a mobile social networking application designed for asking opinions and advice to a large community in realtime.   Similar to Quora (which came after)  but from what I've seen it seems that this one is more used by the younger generation for questions such as.. Do you like my new hairstyle?  or Am I good-looking  -  where as Quora is more for business type questions I find.  However you can filter these questions out and just go to a specific topic. Opinionaided was launched in 2010 by founder Dan Kurani and co-founders Mike Melli and Matt Holloway and already has many users. Originally for iphone, ipod, and iPad, but is now available on Android and Online. The interesting thing about Opinionaided is the phenomenal response rate - the first time I used it I asked a pretty lame question and within seconds I had 10 answers!  What networking site can you say that about? Its very easy to use there are five buttons at the bottom of the screen which are Home - Where you get two options - Ask [...]

Blippar – The QR code killer ?

By | October 24th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Who or what is Blippar... and why is it going to kill the QR code!? Blippar is a Uk Company that launched its free image recognition application earlier this year in android and apple stores. Blippar™ is the first universal augmented reality platform aimed at advertisers.   Blippar is a new way to advertise or to get people interested in your brand. Its a great way to use marketing and the technology we love at the same time. Blippar call it a little bit of magic in our phones. Turn a real world object in front of you into an interactive experience by using your phone, genius! What it does is similar to the QR code, which I do love - but it is far, far more. The application uses the camera to recognise products. It might be actual bottles and packets or maybe posters, adverts, a building or even your logo on your business card or cup anything in the real word that is blippable you can turn into digital connections, information or interactive entertainment. The list is in fact endless! You hold your [...]

The death of Old Twitter is upon us! #saveoldtwitter

By | August 3rd, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

  It's almost a year since Twitter announced that it was changing to a newly re-engineered Twitter.com  They said you will be able to use it as a preview for a few weeks. You'll be able to switch back and forth for a few weeks to get used to how it works. I love new things, so I eagerly rushed over to New Twitter, only to be bitterly disappointed with what I saw.  So I switched back again, I did try it a few times knowing that the time will come that Twitter will make us change. However I just didn't like New Twitter so I stuck with what I loved; Old Twitter. Armegeddon arrives  Then last night, in the dead of the night, we were informed by @twitter that Old Twitter is being dumped for New Twitter.     We  knew that it was getting closer to judgement day as the message at the top of the screen lately changed to read. I know many people that have embraced the change over and they love the new interface.  I also know [...]

Twitter Photo-Sharing Service – Bad for Twitpic!

By | May 31st, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

No doubt you would have heard by now that Twitter's CEO Dick Costolo is announcing the launch of a photo-sharing service this week, we first heard it was a rumour from Techcrunch however since then allthingsd.com confirmed that the image sharing service is going to be announced on Wednesday at All Things D's D9 California Conference. I hadn't seen this report myself until I asked Robert Scoble about it yesterday and he told me where it had been confirmed so it must be true, unless All things D are lying. Ev said earlier today ... So who knows what the truth is, I guess we will find out soon enough. Twitter clearly wants to overturn these 3rd parties, and has said so previously.  We also saw this with Tweetdeck being bought by Twitter and now Twitpic and Yfrog will be the ones being pushed out or bought?  What does this mean for other rival 3rd party applications? This comes at a good time; as users are complaining about Twitpic's  Terms of Service which unmistakably states ... By uploading content to Twitpic you [...]

Why you can’t log in to Ubertwitter and Twidroyd

By | February 19th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

UPDATE: at around 11pm GMT Sunday -from @UBERSOC - Great news! Twitter has approved our changes, and we expect to provide a new version in about an hour.1.45am - Everyone waits as ubersocial informs us - just a few minutes more! 2am - @ubersoc - Thanks for your loyalty and patience.            Spread the word, You can Download           #UberSocial (formerly #UberTwitter)           link - http://bit.ly/UberDLMany people are waking up and trying to log in to UberTwitter or Twidroyd  today to find messages like "forbidden" and are thinking  they are hacked or something is wrong with their phone.There is nothing wrong apart from the fact that Twitter suspended these Ubermedia applications for violating policies.Its said that there are 3 Ubermedia applications suspended today but its not Echofon (which I've tested, its fine) as I first thought, its UberCurrent.One of the reasons they were closed down seems to be regarding a privacy issue about allowing messages longer than 140 character (and changing the content of tweets) that sounds a bit of a worry. Ubermedia have recently acquired Tweetdeck that uses Deck.ly to [...]
