Facebook: Rules Are For The Masses

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

Have you seen those recommendations for people who you might know on Facebook? They’re mixed in with the adverts as a list of names with a small photograph and, sometimes, they are reasonably accurate. Based on those who you already know, the Facebook algorithm takes a small selection and encourages you to add more names […]

Social Media: Do You See It All?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 8, 2015 in Internet |

You may well have seen it on one of the many web sites which reports on technology and happenings surrounding social media and the various social platforms so many people use to keep in touch, to promote themselves, to show a presence: Facebook decides what you should see on your timeline and suppresses some posts […]

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? To date, despite pressing demands, no one has been able to answer this question although, in the […]

GoFundMe: A Blast Of Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 5, 2015 in Internet |

I may well have gained the wrong impression when I signed up for GoFundMe, the crowdfunding site, the other day. I had thought it was one of those crowdfunding sites where you can create your campaign and get it out there right away. Looks like I was wrong, and I may well consider deleting it […]

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, […]

Start By Learning To Spell

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Apparently there is an old saying: if you can’t beat them, join them. Sorry, but I can’t do that in this case, I just can’t. It is something which has annoyed me for such a long time that I simply overlook it now – well, mostly – automatically assume a meaning for what has been […]

Selfies: I Need Some ID For That….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 11, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

If you imagine that the fad for selfies begins when a person – especially a woman – is mature enough to understand the effect they could have, when she has left puberty and entered that period when almost anything is legal, than you will undoubtedly be surprised, if not shocked, to discover that this simply […]

Oh, You Foolish Few

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

Not so long ago I wrote about how Tumblr is becoming the latest thieves site: shoplifters posting their swag pictures for all to see and admire. Those on Tumblr, however, clearly have a little more in their heads than other people, such as a woman in West Franfort, Illinois who decided to post a selfie […]
