Shock, Horror And The Art Of Clickbait

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 1, 2014 in Internet |

Have you ever seen something which really grabs your attention, either in real life or here in our virtual world, gone into or clicked through to see what it is all about and discovered that there is nothing there of interest? Or, worse still, that the attracting headline, title or offer bears absolutely no resemblance […]

Internet Retirement: Your Days Are Numbered

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 28, 2014 in Internet |

Retirement is something many people simply do not look forward to: what will they do with all their free time? So much leisure all of a sudden, and no plans whatsoever. Either that, or they look forward to it more than anything else, have already made copious plans, and can’t wait to get out and […]

Beer: Masculine And Feminine Marketing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 18, 2014 in Internet |

I don’t know if it is the same for you but sometimes when I come across an article on the Internet, I begin to wonder where all the information contained comes from. Is it an original piece of research, where the writer has gone out and explored for themselves, or have they taken something already […]

Staying In Touch: A Few Red Faces

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 17, 2014 in Internet |

What’s in a name? When it comes to the Internet, everyone and their dog wants to have a domain name which matches either themselves, or what they do. Competition for the best names is high, if not bitterly fought, and there are plenty of court cases, court judgements, which show just how bitter a fight […]

Twitter: Cheating The Figures With Followers

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 14, 2014 in Internet |

I’ve recently noticed what is for me a new trend on Twitter: people or companies who follow at random and expect a follow back, then, when they get it, promptly unfollow. The people tend to be those who offer certain services, such as a mass of new followers on Twitter, Facebook and so on, for […]

Spock: Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 11, 2014 in Internet |

Censorship is a strange thing, especially when it is political censorship. Take, as an example, the decision by the Chinese censor to remove all references to Vladimir Putin placing a warming blanket around the shoulders of Peng Liyuan, wife of the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, to protect her from the rain. Clearly, for the Chinese, […]

Twitter: How Many Friends Make Life Interesting?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 10, 2014 in Internet |

Have you ever tried to hold a decent conversation with more than twenty people at one time? I can imagine that any such attempt is doomed to failure: everyone wants to have their say, to get their words in wherever they can, to be a part of the whole and, thus, the conversation becomes more […]

Selfies: Even The Youngest Child

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 8, 2014 in Internet |

How many of your friends and relations post photographs of their children on the Internet? I’m fairly sure most would say all of them do: there is something cute about a child and, of course, our child is far cuter than all the others. As proof, here’s the latest photograph of a child doing something […]

The People Behind Real Content Management

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 25, 2014 in Internet |

In the beginning I believed that people combed through the content of Social Media web sites looking for those images and messages which should never have seen the light of day. I thought that there was an office somewhere that, filled with cubicles, had hundreds of people working to ensure that social networks remained clean, […]

Twitter Links: Hitting Rock Bottom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

For some sites, security is of the utmost importance, and that is a good thing. As we read, almost every single week of the year, about another breach, about more phishing, about millions of e-mail addresses, social security numbers, names and address, bank account details being stolen from their supposedly secure repositories on a server […]
