Begging for people to click “Like” on your Facebook page is begging for trouble…

facebook_logoForgive me if this post appears to be a little self-centered, but I thought I’d broach the subject of what I dislike most about other Facebook pages by pointing out what I like most about my own Facebook page.

This way, no specific person (and this post wasn’t written to sub-bash any specific person), who does the opposite of what I do, cannot accuse me of personally attacking him/her, even if s/he feels personally convicted because s/he does the opposite of what I do.

From The Wall Street Journal: Borrowers Hit Social-Media Hurdles by Stephanie Armour

What you share about yourself in the cyber world has far-reaching effects into the real world.

Back in 2010, I wrote an article entitled, “NO! It’s not just Twitter,” and some people scoffed at the idea that what they were tweeting would be of any concern in their “real” lives.

Well, for those who didn’t take that article seriously, maybe they’ll be convinced by an Continue Reading →

From c|net: Instagram account crackdown spreads panic, fear of hacking by Jennifer Van Grove

From c|net: Instagram account crackdown spreads panic, fear of hacking by Jennifer Van GroveA number of Instagram’s 90 million active users are in a confused panic after being locked out of their accounts over the weekend, and several seem to believe they’ve been hacked.

On Saturday, the same day the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app enacted its revised terms or service, Yahoo Answers was inundated with threads from alarmed Instagram users who claimed to have lost access to their accounts for no apparent reason.

From examiner.com: Facebook users may no longer have their say on privacy policies by Cendrine Marrouat

Facebook users may no longer have their say on privacy policies by Cendrine MarroutAre you ready for some major changes? On Wednesday, Facebook proposed an update that will probably ruffle more than a few feathers.

The company would like to put an end to its voting system, a three-year old practice that allows users to share their feedback and weigh in on decisions regarding privacy on the site:

“We deeply value…

Blog: Mind of a Diva

Jennifer Baker’s blog is self-hosted on WordPress.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jennifer Baker (JB): Mind of a Diva serves as a vessel that’s redefining what it means to be a diva through the life and thoughts of a woman in her twenties. There is so much that we have to deal with as we make the transition from childhood into adulthood, and this is my story along with those of the people around me.

The word Diva has held many meanings, mostly it has described a woman how is bossy and has an attitude. While a diva may have those attributes, she is more than that. A diva is independent, strong, virtuous, and busy. With all of the things that she has going on she maintains her composure and makes it happen.

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Mind of a Diva?

JB: I really go off of what’s going on around me with my friends, family, and myself or what I’m thinking about. I also like to pull topics from articles or books that I read that fit into what Mind of a Diva is about.

DCSME: How is Mind of a Diva different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JB: I think that it discusses real issues and thoughts that young women experience. Young Women are not always concerned with celebrity news, social media, and other things that main stream magazines advertise. There needs to be more substance out there and about real topics and issues, and that what Mind of a Diva does.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JB: I love getting out the words and thoughts that I have and putting them out there for the world to read. The most fulfilling part is seeing that someone else relates and understands where I’m coming from when they read my post.

DCSME: How often do you update Mind of a Diva?

JB: I update the site at least two to three times a week. Usually Monday through Friday and sometimes on Saturday.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JB: Mind of a Diva is about everyone woman seeing the power and beauty within herself. I want the website to be a place where women can find post that relate to them and what they are going through.

Blog: Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate

Jackie Swift’s blog is on WordPress.com.

DC Social Media Examiner (DCSME): What is your blog about?

Jackie Swift (JS): I blog about writing and books, lifestyle and education; I include poetry, recipes and short stories. It is a wide ranging blog covering the many areas of life I am interested in. There’s (almost) something for everyone!

DCSME: How did you pick the topic for Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I’ve been called Jac the Rat for a few years, as I was born in the Chinese Year of the Rat. It was also the label I used for dress making. I love the word Ephemera, it covers a wide range of sins, which I think links well to the range of topics I cover in my blog. We all love chocolate and we all lie. I am exploring lies and secrets as part of my PhD studies in Literature.

DCSME: How is Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate different from other blogs that cover the same or similar information?

JS: My blog is wide ranging, and deliberately so. I would feel too constrained by one area. There are other such blogs around, but I think my advantage is that I write from both the heart and experience. I try to be positive and life affirming, as well as using humour, which I think sets me apart.

DCSME: What do you like most about blogging?

JS: I love the freedom to write what I am passionate about. I like responses from my readers and that my audience is growing all the time. I love writing and this is a great way to explore different topics, as well as refine and develop my writing skills. I love that you know you are being read.

DCSME: How often do you update Jactherat – Ephemera, lies & chocolate?

JS: I try to up-date twice a week – Saturday and mid-week. When I’m on holidays I blog more – my head is freer and I have more time, obviously.

DCSME: What else would you like to share with readers of your profile?

JS: I’m completing a novel for my PhD, called Ophelia, watch out for it! I’m finalising a travel e-book for an English publisher. I currently have a collection of short stories available as e-book – entitled Life Happens
