Social Media: As Popular As Ever?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2015 in Internet |

This is a question which has been aimed at Facebook and several other social media sites – but mainly Facebook – since social media and social networking became a thing: how many members / users do you have?

Apparently, according to People Magazine in the United States, Louis Tomlinson is about to do something no other man has managed to do before – unless you count Adam donating a rib or Arnold Schwarzenegger’s film roles – and give birth to a baby. Not only that but he is also the father of this […]

It’s All In The Haircut

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 13, 2015 in Internet |

Andrew Kacsynski, a researcher for Buzzfeed Politics, has spent some time carefully researching all the times that Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin, tweeted about having a haircut. Looking at the list, it seems like a mass haircut bonanza, and I am sure someone made a good profit out of his custom, but for the fact […]

Twitter: Getting Good Placement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2015 in Internet |

The saying Timing Is Everything has had its day. Now, with the fast-moving, interactive, shallow-concentration days of the Internet and social media, placement is everything.

Getting On My Nerves

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2015 in Internet |

Sometimes I have the feeling that if you compliment someone – or something – too soon after a change, things go bad.

Today, in some countries around the world, is a day when we say Thank You to those who, selflessly, cared for us during those first years of our lives. We thank our mothers for the time they sacrificed for us, for the effort in bringing us into the world and the love and care shown […]

The excitement is over, Kate has a daughter and she’s called Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, is fourth in line to the throne and has had her first photocall for the press.

The Downside Of Linking

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2015 in Internet |

It seems almost as if there has been a mad rush to correct something which could easily have been avoided: an older change to the algorithm Google uses to assess rankings seems to have caught some web sites off their guard. Over the last few weeks I’ve been hit with several requests to go back […]

Hacking WordPress

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 15, 2015 in Internet |

One of the big discussion themes at the moment – an ongoing theme, to be honest – is hacking and, in particular, the many attempts to hack into WordPress sites. It has been mentioned often, along with a whole series of resolutions to make a site safer, but still seems to be a theme simply […]
