Download Your Facebook Information And Be Illuminated!

I’ve been reading about changes Facebook wants to make to Instagram via smartphones. Instead of leaving it alone, they want to merge it with both Messenger and WhatsApp, two apps I’ve never wanted on my phone. I also eliminated Facebook from my phone as soon as I bought it. I’m stuck with Google tracking me (since I’m on Android), but that’s as far as I’m allowing it.

Facebook images

face and book

Luckily, some time ago I downloaded all my images from Instagram. I actually did that shortly after my computer crashed back in 2018, but I didn’t do the same from Facebook. I’ve been on the site just over 12 years, and I’ve uploaded lots of pictures there that didn’t originate from Instagram. Many include family members that most of them had never seen. I lost a lot of those images, like from Instagram, in the big crash of 2018. This set me on a journey towards discovery… and the last thing I discovered was stunning! Stick around…

Is It Harassment If Your Stupidity Was Shared With The Public?

We’ve moved into an interesting place as it pertains to social media. With new sites like Parler popping up (I’m not creating an account there), people who feel their voices are being censored are heading there to exhibit their freedom of speech. My opinion is that most of it will be what I consider to be hate speech, based on all I’ve read. No problem in my opinion; let them have their place in the world so they’ll leave my preferred spaces.

However, some of those folks don’t want to have to go to a place like that. From their perspective, it’s not as much fun as if they exhibit their thoughts against people who don’t want to hear it. So they’re staying on places like Twitter, LinkedIn and of course Facebook. Some of them are saying things like what you see above.

LinkedIn; Posts Not Articles, Part Two

I’ve done a good bit of experimenting on LinkedIn over the past few years. In 2015 I wrote an article titled Writing Articles That Gain Attention On LinkedIn, after I’d started posting full articles there. Some were brand new; some were edited pieces of older blog posts, mainly from my business blog.

It started out well, and I thought it was the panacea I was looking for to help me breakthrough the noise, to draw more attention to what I could do for my particular business audience. Then… it wasn’t anymore. I went from thousands of views to ten’s of views, and I decided it was over when the last article I put there got 21 views; I do better than that leaving everything on my blogs.

The Danger Of Being Yourself In Social Media Spaces

We’re in a very polarizing state in the American union these days. Covid, race relations, the upcoming presidential election… you name it, add the word “ugly” to it and that’s where we are.

Social media seems to amplify that for one main reason; people in general can be stupid. I see it a lot more on LinkedIn than on either Facebook or Twitter. It’s probably because we have more control over what we see or don’t see on those two platforms as opposed to LinkedIn… but it hasn’t always been that way.

Social Media Won’t Solve All Your Problems

The world of sales and networking is changing, and a major part of it is happening via social media. I could say ‘internet’, but truth be told, the internet on its own really didn’t change much except to allow people the opportunity to have a presence online.

The Art of Social Media

Blogging is part of social media, and it was one of the first mediums where creators learned that they could connect with a lot of people and make money at the same time. There are quite a few bloggers who became millionaires before the rest of us got into it.
