There you are, on the information highway cruising along and you see a sign. It looks interesting, and you want to stop and check it out. So, you steer to the ramp to see this thing and BAM! You must sign in to access this site message pops up. Now you know you have that internal fight going on at that moment…should I? They want to know what? Not to mention the really bad part, ANOTHER PASSWORD I HAVE TO REMEMBER? I can hear the screaming from here, please go ahead and get it out of your system…I can wait.
Recently, I have spoken to many groups and they pretty much all agree that this whole account and password for everything is just simply annoying. Not that the importance of needing passwords escapes anyone, but who really makes a different password for every account? Most people just use the same password for everything. And the real “smart ones” have 2-3 different passwords that the use and when forced to, change out. I am not making light of the issue that online security is important to all of us, actually I think I have found a couple of good options for everyone who is looking for something that can tame this whole password monster. Password management is not something to be scared of, as a matter of fact the two options I am sharing with you today should make this much easier for you.
Facebook hopes to make it easier to for users to chat and upload multiple photos on their mobile devices through a new iOS app released this past week. Tweak for messaging, you can swipe to the left anywhere in the app to see who’s available for messaging, and mark friends you message the most in your Favorites. Additionally to the new messaging and photo features, Facebook adds improvements to Facebook Gifts’ function. The social network has been increasing the prominence of its new gift-giving service, most recently with a tweak to its Android app.
Facebook has been doing some fall cleaning. They have been removing fake accounts, likes, and pages that are somewhat shady. What this really means is they are making sure that the pages and such that people and business make on their site are real. Same with people who like them. Out here floating around the internet many things can be considered currency.
“Likes” on Facebook are like gold. The more likes I get on my pages, the larger audience I have, which is valuable when the time comes that business might want to advertise with me. It really is that simple. There was a site I was reading a few months ago. It was about a mom who started her blog some five years ago. She started it when she had become pregnant and had quite her job. Naturally she got somewhat bored and decided that she would write about what she was going through. Long story short, she has over million people following her blog. Huggies, baby wipes, Gerber, and many others found that to be very important. Because she had an audience of exactly the type of people that they wanted to sell their products too. Lets face it, mom’s follow mom’s. Not like some out of work NFL ref is reading her site. Not to mention people that follow a site such as hers typically become loyal fans. Meaning I put Huggies on my site instead of pampers, her followers remember that when they are at the Walgreens. Guess what, Huggies knows this and so they pay her to advertise on her site. The larger her “following base” is the more they pay. And that is how “likes” or following someone is like gold.
The internet is like old Las Vegas. We got some hotels now, and some good casinos. We have some awesome people, and some not so good people all around us. As we grow and learn what works and what doesn’t we know who and where we should be focused. Some think they know already, while others are still finding new and exciting venues and consumers.
So, next time you click that “like” button … remember, you are making someones day! Wanna hit mine?
