Facebook took down the app that showed who unfriends you

By | July 13th, 2015|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , |

Finally people had an application to see who unfriended them on Facebook, it seems its what people want to know - but Facebook didn't like it and Facebook took down the app that showed who unfriends you. So, why did Facebook ask for it to be removed? Facebook took down the app that showed who unfriends you The app was called "Who Deleted Me" and was available on iOS other mobiles and had extensions for browsers such as Chrome was created by Anthony Kuske. The app went viral last week and Anthony worked hard to be able to handle all of the traffic.  Only it seems that maybe it didn't comply with Facebook's terms of service, and I didn't use Facebook's new API so Facebook got rid of it. Anthony says on the website Dear users, Unfortunately, due to a request by Facebook, Who Deleted Me is no longer available on any platform. If you have a Who Deleted Me browser extension or application installed it will no longer function. Who Deleted Me was intended to be a useful tool to enhance users' [...]

How Many Social Networks Are There?

By | November 8th, 2013|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , , , , , |

HOW MANY SOCIAL NETWORKS ARE THERE? People are often surprised at how many social networks there actually are, they often think of just Facebook and Twitter. Wait for it... there are literally hundreds of social networking sites, more than 500 in fact.  That’s without counting all of the Chinese and other countries networks such as China's Tencent who own WeChat with 200 million users. . However, out of the 500+ not all are of good quality or exactly thriving but they are available, and might just be the next big thing. Some social networking platforms are obviously more popular than others and many of them you may not class as a social network but if its aim is to be social and to share and connect with other users then it’s often called a social network, social media platform or social site, and you can even include mobile applications in this such as Path a social networking-enabled photo sharing and messaging service for mobile devices. Which network should I be on for my business? Don’t panic though; you do not have [...]

Yesterday I started seeing giraffe pictures pop up on peoples Facebook profiles, I didn't think anything of it as people are often putting crazy pictures up in support of something.  However, today I started to see a load more, so I had to ask what's with the Giraffe profile pictures Giraffe profile pictures It turns out there is a riddle going around: The Giraffe riddle challenge - if you get the riddle wrong, you have to put up a giraffe profile picture up for three days, and if you get it right, then everyone has to say how wonderful you are.

Glide Video Texting App

By | July 31st, 2013|Categories: Mobile apps|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This Free Glide Video Texting App looks really cool. With Glide you are able to send video messages that are saved in the cloud to watch later or you can use the video to have real time chat.  With just one person or even in a group. To me, right now glide does sound just awesome. They just did one thing to let me down. Log in with Facebook The only down side for me is that you have to (at the moment) log in via Facebook.  However don't freak out, they are working on some other sign up options.  In one way signing up with Facebook does give the app some security.  As obviously its only people you call  your friends that can send you Glides.  However with a stand alone app you could have it so that only people you allow can send you video messages, maybe even with a code like BBM. Another thing I'm concerned with using Facebook or Twitter to sign in are the extra messages you will get, and I have seen reports of spam [...]

Facebook Profile Viewer Scam – Who is looking at your timeline?

By | November 24th, 2012|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , , , |

CC - http://www.flickr.com/photos/striatic/2192192956/ Can you see who is looking at your facebook profile I last wrote about this scam 2 years ago, or a scam just like it - as the above link shows - and still we have not learned our lesson. We are still clicking and sharing these applications.  Who is watching your Profile, who are my Facebook profile visitors, who is looking at your timeline. Someone suggested we are curious, I think we are paranoid. Is my ex looking at what I am saying on Facebook? Does that boy I fancy know I stalk him on facebook? HA, not me!   You know you can block people or set your profile up so that not everyone can view it or even find it. Facebook Profile Viewer Scam This latest one appears to be an app called Facebook Profile Viewers, which was shared by a "friend" on Facebook to 45 people that I can see. If he did that on purpose I can only assume that he thought it was real - but I would probably put money on it that [...]

Is your employer blocking social sites or asking for passwords?

By | November 3rd, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

HR must embrace social I find it amazing that employers would ask for your Facebook Passwords. In one way I can understand why they would block Social Networks if they think you are wasting company time looking at tweets, but it doesn't have to be that way. Employer asked for Facebook Password This infographic from Compliance and Safety.com shows - Asking for an employers password is a clear invasion of privacy Will cause bad relations with bosses and staff Could initiate a discrimination lawsuit. It actually violates Facebook's privacy terms. With regard to blocking social sites at work, most people are not stupid enough to be on Facebook during work hours if it is not part of their own job but might like to catch up in their lunch hour or break times. However, even better it could be used for the companies benefit - IE talking about great things that are happening that day, an event at work, a new product -  This is free advertising! Amazingly school and colleges in the UK are known to block social networking sites for staff and [...]

Facebook Private Messages appearing on Timeline isn’t Privacy Bug

By | September 24th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

TechCrunch alerted readers that private messages were appearing on Timeline as posted by friends.   I think people might actually be getting paranoid about Facebook privacy now. I must say I've never trusted it either.  So is it a hoax or not? Today we read a post created by Techcrunch - They said that private messages were appearing on your timeline, they said it didn't seem worldwide, it appeared so far to be only in France. The messages appeared in a box that said friends posted to your wall. I was half convinced that this was an isolated case but I headed over to my wall - timeline to check, and I noticed 2 posts that could have been private messages - I thought, Wow its true, this is bad - and I continued on to see if I could find any more - but I couldn't.  I did indeed find the box they mentioned for the year 2009 with about 200 wall messages from friends, but they were not private messages, mostly birthday wishes. These have always been visible on your Facebook wall. However, it [...]

How to change your Twitter Header Photo 2016

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

  How to change your Twitter Header Photo 2016 I've noticed people heading over to this page, so its time for a 2016 UPDATE Its so much simpler now. Click your own name to open up your page fully and at the top you will see your cover picture - underneath it says EDIT PROFILE When you click this it lets you change your cover or header photo, your profile picture, your name and your bio.   Just click change your header photo - upload your image and save changes.  The best size for the Twitter header photo is 1263 x 421 Although twitter recommends 1500 x 500 it come out too large and twitter allows you to adjust it but for me, it just never works. If you haven't updated your twitter, then you may still be able to use the instructions below for 2015.   ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   More changes on Twitter, what next ? As you probably know Twitter has made some changes, see here if not -> Twitter announces new profile pages and iPad app -  You can now [...]
