A social networking service is a platform to build social networks or relations among people who share similar interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. A social network service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile), his or her social links, and a variety of additional services such as career services. Social network sites are web-based services that allow individuals to create a public profile, create a list of users with whom to share connections, and view and cross the connections within the system. Social networking sites allow users to share ideas, pictures, posts, activities, events, and interests with people in their network. Other popular services include Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, Reddit, Pinterest, Vine and Tumblr.

Does anyone know how to resolve Family Plan issue with Uber?
My daughter is on my Uber family plan.  She's a pre-med student in Michigan and I am in CA.  For some reason Uber keep blocking her and I keep adding her number.  The number getting added but then its getting removed.  Then she's calling me to call her Uber from out of state :)  No Lyft is available in her area.
I cannot find a number to talk to customer service.
Anyone had to deal with that and have any suggestion?

Hi,

As the subscription costs really add up over the long haul, we plan to cancel our LinkedIn Recruiter Lite account over the summer months and resume it again in September.

If we do  this then we will get an empty account when we resume in a 4 months' time. This is grossly annoying as we lose all of the data we have paid to generate over the past few years.

Of course we can save the primary data by downloading CV's, but we lose items like stats on how many applications, and when, Groups candidates are part of, the ability to filter candidates by; Location, Company, Job title, First name, Last name, Years of experience, Education, etc.  Plus we lose the useful recruitment interface that they provide to view that data.

Although LinkedIn does not advertise the fact, I have a feeling that it is somehow possible to download all of our data.  It is our data after all, plus we have paid significant number of thousands in subscription.

How would we download all of our data from LinkedIn Recruiter Lite?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hello, Experts,

I am a part of non-profit organization, which is going through re-branding.  We currently have a LinkedIn Company page with a few hundreds followers, and I was wondering how we can migrate this page into a new LinkedIn Company Page with a new logo.  How can we accomplish this?

Please advise.

How does sharing to social media work?  If I put an icon on my web page to Share to Facebook, what part of the page gets shared,  where does it show up on Facebook and whose Facbook page does it show up on?

Thanks

How do I turn off Facebook notification 'You have a new friend suggestion" ?

I checked their support site.  Either they don't want me to know how to turn that off or there is no way to turn it off?

I went to Settings > Notifications.  Didn't find anything about that.  I tried hovering my cursor over the specific notification but my only option is to hide the notification.  I want to stop these notifications from happening.  There must have been a Facebook update or enhancement with this feature because I didn't used to get them in the past, but in the past few weeks I've been getting them way too often.

I guess if there is no way to turn it off I'll have to try disabling all notifications.

What are your thoughts, ideas, solutions?  Thank you.

With the whole world putting Facebook under a microscope for their advertising platform practices, have you ever taken a look at the information being used to target you?

The "Advertisers you've interacted with" tab can be pretty eye opening...

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I am interested in uploading resumes and cover letters for other people to LinkedIn.  Seeing that I am new to this social media platform, I am wondering what steps would be necessary to accomplish this goal.   A link to a video illustration would be perfect.

           Thank you

If I tweet a link Twitter automatically picks a picture it embeds into that tweet. Is there some way to point out to Twitter (and perhaps also all the other social media sites Facebook, Instagram, ...) what picture to pick? Especially when you not integrate the typical set of social media buttons offering to post about the page, but if someone just posts a link to say a blog article? Is that perhaps simply the biggest picture detected to come from the same origin?

And if there is such a mechanism, can you even tell twitter to rather not display some picture, especially with a webpage not so well known and mostly textual, where the most prominent picture rather is a site logo only?

As one example I see links to Quora answers having pictures not even part of that answer as if there is some hidden tag or meta info as an official way to tell social media what picture to embed. If there is, how does this work generally? When something applies to Twitter, does it also apply to Twitter apps like HootSuite?

That's a bit fuzzy question, but I'd take any helpful hint on social media optimization. Is that a thing at all, aside from SEO?

Normally, when I watch a YouTube video, I see the AutoPlay option above the "up next" videos on the right of the screen.
AutoPlay
However, for a video I uploaded, I don't see the same option.
Missing Option
I should say I have the mode of the 2nd video set to Unlisted, rather than Public. (Unlisted means that the only way someone can view it is via direct URL.)

How can I activate this option so I can start my day listening to this video and then have it move seamlessly onto the next one...

Thanks!

I want to use Instagram on my Macbook instead of on my phone. The way the app works is you can only upload photos on a mobile device. Is there a work-around so that I am able to use it on my Macbook?

Hi,

I just uploaded a video to YouTube as "unlisted". (To share with family members via a direct link, but not publicly available.)  After I did so, I forgot to copy the link. And, since the video's unlisted, I can't search for it.

Is there a way to view all videos I've posted? When I go to "My Channel",  all I see are playlists (of other peoples' videos) that I've compiled.

Thanks,
Steve

I'm having trouble. I logged in using my Facebook account. But i cannot manage my password.

i'm unable to sign in unless i use that facebook account, and in doing so i can't change my password.

When I get to 'sign in' I can't. i use the password reset which gives me a temporary password. I go to my setting page, try resetting the password but it doesn't not accept my temporary password so I can't change it either

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

We have a client that wants to start getting involved in social network having presence in Tweeter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest.  Not only posting its business “news” or “new product” but articles of interest that come upon on a daily bases or even re-post articules or contents from other business partners, etc.

Besides the fact the client wants to know what  is the best way to start, one concern is posting data.  That  is comments, pictures, etc.  

We want to know how to go about posting an issue through all these social networks.  

For example, we found an artificial intelligence topic interesting and wanted to post it.  We download the article, download some images, prepare it and posted to Facebook.  How do the user go about  to modify contents prior posting to all Tweeter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Pinterest? Or is there a way that the user can creat a “template” and then post them to all?

FYI if you post to Twitter
Starting tomorrow, Twitter will no longer allow you to post the same message to multiple accounts simultaneously. Twitter developers explained on their blog this change is to ensure Twitter is free from spam. This change may be due in part to all the issues Facebook has been seeing with spam and "fake news". Will this help Twitter or should this have just been in place all along?

This change may be due in part to all the issues Facebook has been seeing with spam and "fake news".

Twitter's fake news issue is much larger than Facebook's, thanks to the anonymous nature of their platform.

Twitter is just now giving some transparency to users, by publishing guidelines for how-to not get your account purged as a bot. Last month they purged a ton of bots and a lot of 'real' accounts were caught in the cross-fire:

These mass bot purges are becoming commonplace:
https://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/twitter-suspends-army-of-fake-accounts-after-trump-thanks-propaganda-bot-for-supporting-him/

Twitter is plagued with bots. Apparently a common thing bots do is post the same thing over and over. Now if you are programming a bot, you know not to do that.

App Development

Apart from its culture, demographics, and beliefs, Indian infrastructure is also quite complex, especially because of the challenge of overpopulation that stares us right in the eye. Due to this, it has been quite difficult to anticipate the traffic behavior, directions, local businesses, and many other things, with accuracy. When Google Maps was launched in India, it certainly helped, but also showed us that we need a better solution. Something that is indigenous, so that it knows the country inside out. Hence, MapMyIndia.


A mobile apps development company that works in sync with ISRO’s Bhuvan satellite - MapMyIndia recently launched its navigation and positioning app, created exclusively for India, and is already giving tough competition to Google Maps. It provides accurate information even for daily commuters. In fact, it has taken it a step further by including many live features that are extremely helpful, especially when you are in a country like India where traffic situations and even addresses change every now and then. So let’s take a look at what features it brings together to create something that is messing with the Google ‘bear’.


IoT Tracking


A big leap ahead for India with this IoT solution, the app uses its own IoT devices to track and collect information from different points through sensors. Making the best use of IoT technology, the app has been instilled with the ability to create real-time alerts for users and commuters. In case of a traffic jams, IoT sensors take note of the situation and suggest short and alternative routes to mitigate the traffic.


Voice-guidance


Matching shoulders with Google, the app also provides a voice navigation facility with turn-by-turn navigation support, which is expected to decrease the rate of road accidents that happen due to the lack of hands-free GPS systems.


Floating button for Reporting Issues


Apart from the data collection via the IoT system, there is a manual way of reporting issues i.e via people. Road damaged? Broken transport? Traffic jam in your area? Just take a picture and upload it to the relevant section in the app. Good thing is that the app has covered almost all kinds of issues that occur, including map issues, traffic issues, connectivity issues, and areas with specific access.


Tailored for India


Compared to Google Maps, MapMyIndia focuses on much more detail and list small businesses, facilities, shopping centers, and even personal addresses. However, because the app is still quite new to the market in terms of reach, it is still under the data collection phase, during which you may not find many small addresses in the app. But that is only for now because the database is constantly growing.


Detailed Information


Another reason why the app has great usability in India is that it provides complete information about a particular thing that you look for on the map. Apart from the address and direction, you also get a contact number, email, website and opening hours. Also, with the help of worldview, not only you can get details about a place, you can also see what people think of this place, based on the number of likes it has garnered.


Analytics


Some people just want more information about everything, including trips, so just an odometer and tachometer is not enough for them. MapMyIndia comes with trip analytics that allows info savvy people to track more. You can track the time of trip completion, estimated time of arrival, remaining distance, remaining time of arrival, and much more; on-the-go.



MapMyIndia has created something that is perfectly tailored to the ever-changing maps of India. However, one of the things that the application clearly lacks is user experience. The touch buttons and screens reflect subliminal efforts on the designing side.
