Usually around this time every year I am looking forward to the unveiling of the next iPhone, I have been an Apple fan for years but I am also no stranger to Android and I have always kept an eye on what they were up to. For the past number of years I have maintained that the pure Google experience on Android is best but the S8+ has me extremely interested.
Email clients have become incredibly popular over recent years, many of us are now using email clients and of course when I refer to clients I am talking about the email programmes on our computers – not people I do work for.
Twitter verification. Once it was coveted and many of us craved the blue tick on our accounts. Why? Approval, validation, the feeling of being accepted into the group of the Twitter elite. I was verified on Twitter before the application process opened and several times in the past I have spoke about how I feel there is a lack of value to being verified now.
I have laid off Twitter for a couple of months, you know, give them a break from the constant bashing because thats what it feels like I am doing most of the time. I’m not going to start beating on them again (well not that much anyway) because Twitter will always have a special place for me.
I have been on the fence over the topic of Donald Trump and Twitter. I thought that he might be of use to the platform looking to grow. With the level of controversy around every tweet I had wondered if it would pull more users into the platform.
Not a question I expected to be answering to be honest but there is a debate going on at the moment – is social media marketing really dead? Business owners and marketers are debating the issue as platforms like Snapchat lose subscribers and Twitter still struggles to gain real significant traction.
Facebook has passed 2 billion users which makes it the most powerful and most influential social network on the planet. The milestone was announced last week by Mark Zuckerberg who said:
Last week Snapchat introduced Snap Map, an opt-in function which allows you to share your location with friends on a map. Using Snap Map you can see the location of your friends, colleagues and family members on a virtual map.
One of the questions I get asked almost every single weeks now is, “How much should I pay for someone to write a blog post?” So you realise that blogging for business is important and you want in. It is good for your SEO and a great way of generating new content every week.
The point can never be emphasised enough, what goes online stays online. If you were unsure of the implications that social media or any online content for that matter could have on your life then this story could well be an eye opener.
