By |2017-02-08T01:18:33+00:00July 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' [...]

Twitter is Rolling out the new Twitter Quote Tweet

By |2017-02-08T01:18:39+00:00April 7th, 2015|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: |

Twitter is rolling out a revamped version of the quote tweet, its so very much different its more like the new twitter quote tweet. I already have this on one of my accounts and yet on another I don't see it yet - so its coming to us all gradually.  Its available on the iPhone the Web and coming coming soon to Android. People hardly use the quote tweet because its just so ....... ugly - it would just put quote-marks sound the tweet - leaving you very little room to add what you wanted to say. Its pretty hard to see who said what with the old quote tweet. Also I guess people prefer the RT - Retweet which includes RT and your @Name although on the mobile version of twitter when you RT you don't get the option to put a comment - unless you do it manually - which is still a much preferred way to retweet by many that used this way of retweeting before the retweet button appeared. The New Twitter Quote Tweet Now it looks much better [...]

Today users of Twitch received an email telling them that there has been Unauthorized Access to Twitch Accounts - and that people are to reset their passwords. At first users might be concerned that its a fake email from Twitch or that just their own account was hacked but no, its seems all users got this email.  And worse still it maybe that sensitive information such as credit card numbers, and other personal information has been obtained. Unauthorized Access to Twitch Accounts We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some of your Twitch user account information, including possibly your Twitch username and associated email address, your password, the last IP address you logged in from, and any of the following if you provided it to us: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth. While we store passwords in a cryptographically protected form, we believe it’s possible that your password could have been captured in clear text by malicious code when you logged into our site on March 3rd.

How often should you post on Social Networks

By |2017-02-08T01:18:40+00:00March 22nd, 2015|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: |

Businesses starting out on social media, often ask the question - How often should you post on Social Networks. Is there a set amount of tweets to do per day?  Am I posting on Facebook too much or not enough? We think that it really depends on your following, what your business is, how active your followers are - so its good to do your own research - what response do you get when you post? On my personal twitter account I post many many times a day - whenever I see something interesting or if someone I know posts something great I like to share it for them too. However personal accounts are different to business accounts and you need to be careful with your frequency. Luckily for you Sumall and Buffer (which are great platforms you should check out actually) have done some extensive research on social media frequency and created this really cute infographic. You might be shocked to see the results of this research. How often should you post on social networks According to this reasearch [...]

Real Business Rescue have created the following infographic to show exactly How B2B businesses are handling Social Media.  Most businesses realise now that Social media marketing isn't just the next big thing and its not just for B2C businesses either. Top business to business companies are proving that they can increase brand recognition, locate more clients, improve brand loyalty and increase brand authority by interacting with their target audience, which in turn increases traffic to their websites creating more sales. There are many B2B businesses that are using social media successfully but many B2B organisations are still struggling with time management and social media strategies because they don't understand social media and standard marketing isn't working anymore.

The Challenges B2B businesses face on Social Media One of the most interesting feature of this infographic is the challenges that B2B business face -  33% of B2B businesses to not have the time to spend on social media - 23% have a lack [...]

The Difference Between a Cyber Stalker and a Cyber Bully

By |2017-02-08T01:18:41+00:00February 13th, 2015|Categories: Social Networks|Tags: , |

What is the difference between a cyber stalker and a cyber bully - The differences are minimal except the cyberstalker is irrationally obsessed with finding out more information about you which they then twist and manipulate to get what they want and the cyberbully is usually referred to when a child or teen is involved like the bully at school - which is no less distressing. Basically they are both under the headline of Online Harassment or Cyber Harassment and when this is repeated over and over to the victim it can be very distressing or annoying. The difference between a cyber stalker and a cyber bully Cyberstalkers I found an interesting article today from net for beginners which described a cyberstalker and from  my experience, this is spot on - I would go to describe this person just as this. Cyberstalking is a very serious form of online harassment. At one level, cyberstalking is much like cyberbullying, as it involves the sending of repeated annoying and unwelcome messages. But cyberstalking goes far beyond cyberbullying in terms of motivations and tactics. Cyberstalking involves a disturbed obsession with the [...]
