Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

Category Archives: Social Media

 

Social media should be called commercial media.

 

But, there might be a light on the horizon: New social network WT:Social.

 

Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales launched a Facebook and Twitter rival to combat the downfall of news.

“The business model of social media companies, of pure advertising, is problematic,” Mr Wales said. “It turns out the huge winner is low-quality content.”

 

Instead WT:Social will rely solely on donations and promises never to sell personal data or run advertisements.

 

WT:Social originates from the WikiTribune platform that was first launched in 2017 as a news wiki where volunteers could write and curate articles.

Similarly, the new social network is news focussed and is aimed at tackling fake news and “clickbait nonsense” by simply allowing users to edit misleading headlines.

“Almost everything on the platform is editable,” Jimmy Wales said. “That alone gives a huge incentive for good behaviour because if you say something obnoxious, someone will just delete it.”

LinkedIn is a great networking platform for professionals.

 

But they too need to make money.

 

Which I’m painfully reminded of when checking out who visited my profile:

Between blurred, hidden and Private Mode, I get to see none of the people who visited my profile on LinkedIn in the free version.

Sometimes the restrictions of the free version in order to push the user to buy the premium version are getting ridiculous.

 

Luckily, with over 15,000 followers on LinkedIn, I’m not bothered and can just laugh about it.

I’m a big fan of LinkedIn.

 

It has served me well to organise my networking contacts and get recruited for jobs.

 

Honing LinkedIn has now rewarded me with 15,000 Followers. Wow!

 

I made it past 15,000 Followers on LinkedIn.

By default Facebook sends you an email for every little notification.

 

This can quickly fill up your email account.

 

You cannot completely stop this, but at least reduce the amount by choosing to receive ‘only notifications about your account, security and privacy’.

 

How to change your Facebook email notification settings

 

Go to Facebook Settings -> Notifications:

To view and amend your Facebook settings go to: https://www.facebook.com/settings

To view and amend your Facebook settings go to: https://www.facebook.com/settings

 

In Notifications click on Email or right-click open the link in a new tab to get to the Email Settings editing page:

To change the amount of email notification you receive from Facebook select ‘Email’ in 'Notifications settings'.

To change the amount of email notification you receive from Facebook select ‘Email’ in ‘Notifications settings’.

 

In your Email settings chose to receive ‘Only notifications about your account, security and privacy’:

For the least amount of email notifications from Facebook select ‘Only notifications about your account, security and privacy’ beneath ‘WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE’.

For the least amount of email notifications from Facebook select ‘Only notifications about your account, security and privacy’ beneath ‘WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE’.

 

At last, a bit less of the FOMO inducing dark patterns manipulation.

Facebook is filling up my Gmail with notification emails.

 

I was clever enough to filter all Facebook emails into one folder. But I had not expected to get this many notifications!

 

Ooops! I had not noticed that I nearly accumulated 50,000 Facebook emails.

Oops! I hadn’t noticed I nearly accumulated 50,000 Facebook emails.

 

Every little excuse there could be, Facebook uses by default to spam you with their notification emails.

 

If you, like me, are wanting to turn off this clogging up of email accounts, you have to change the default settings in Facebook.

 

At last, a bit less of the FOMO inducing dark patterns manipulation.

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.

Have a dose of what life is really like living here – from my single-handed destruction of the Turkish language, random arguments with random relatives about everything from apples to vaginas to learning the secrets to making the perfect içli köfte!
