Follr – Get your digital identity secured!

Founders Stephen Fells and Mark Wayman call Follr a digital identity website. Follr is a personally branded website that can be used as your initial point of contact, like you would use a business card but digitally. Follr suggest that they solve the problem of our ever changing social identities getting lost and fragmented by storing all of our content and professional or personal information, ie our digital identity.

Hangout, share, showcase talents, network, all in one place | #jumpjbx

There is a brand new entertainment network called Jump Jukebox, which is the  brainchild of Michelle Morgan. Michelle has been writing music since she was very little and felt there was nowhere secure and unsaturated where she could present her music so like anyone would, she created her own stage and Jump Jukebox was born.

Well, there is a lot of panicking going on on Twitter, everyone has just noticed there is a new feature on Twitter – which allows people to DM you without having to follow you back. However there is a new setting – Receive DMs from any follower on Twitter! I’ve seen no announcements from Twitter on this, normally there is a blog, a tweet something but there is no news – so I’m wondering if its a trial feature.   Some people can allow DMs and some can’t, so its been rolled out slowly – some have said they’ve had it […]

I’ve been using it ever since.   And seeing as Twitter now seems to have stopped incorrectly suspending people for aggressive unfollowing when they are not, its […]
