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

Competition between the various social networks is tough.

Facebook: Not Liking And Dangerous Situations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2015 in Internet |

People have been talking about it, on and off, for a long time, some seriously, most as a short of joke. Wouldn’t it be good / right / appropriate for Facebook to have a Don’t Like button to compliment its Like button? How, aside from a comment where they are allowed, can you express your […]

Sorry Wired, But You’ve Got Ello Wrong

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 25, 2015 in Internet |

It doesn’t matter how often you say it, some people have this fixed idea in their minds, and nothing is going to remove it.

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?

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?

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 […]

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.
