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.

I am a relatively new user of Facebook Messenger and have some questions about the implications of various options.  I recently had a conversation with a 3rd party (who is not a friend on Facebook) that I would like to permanently delete from both his and my message history.  From what I understand, it is only technically possible to delete messages sent within 10 minutes of the time the message was sent.  This conversation thread lasted several days and is a few days old so this option is not available.  I understand the reason FB limits the time frame to delete messages on both sides - so that there is proof in case of cyber-bullying.  I can assure you that none of the messages are abusive in any way.  There is the potential that the other party could use the messages in an abusive way in the future, which is why I wish to erase it on both sides.  I realize that the other guy could have taken screen shots or other copies of the message string that I would have no control over.  

I found the following posted online and wanted to hear from experienced Messenger users whether or not this would work and what the other guy would see if I followed these steps:

Step 1. Mark all the message I sent him as "Spam" or "Abuse" (leaning towards SPAM).
Step 2. Delete all these messages on Facebook from my side manually.
Step 3. Deactivate my Facebook account through general settings.
Step 4. Reactivate my account after few hours.

Q1) Would this delete the messages I sent from …

Hi,

I have a friend that wants to make a website for social purposes, like helping other girls going thru similar social situation as hers; like support group of some sort.  I told her that she should consider opening a page in  facebook or a channel in youtube or a blog so she can write what she wants and get feedback.  I would like to know u guys advice on this topic.

  • What blog services out there free?
  • Beside facebook or youtube, what other social media tools should she look into?

I am looking to build a Local audience centered around health and have started the group pictured below on Facebook.

When I went to share the group with a friend that is new to social media, and not on Facebook, and to my surprise I could not.

Since I am also new to using social media myself really, I am a little lost here.

This inability to share with a non-Facebook audience might render Facebook a poor option for this.

Is there any way to share it?  If not, what might be a better social media choice?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

A friend sent me a hoax warning not to accept Facebook friend requests from Andrea Wilson. That it could cause trouble:

"Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept friendship request from Andrea Wilson . She is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks."


However, two other friends told me it was a hoax and I found two links that SEEM to indicate they're correct:

(Search on "Andrea")

Based on the below can I rest assured the original msg I received is a hoax? Thanks.

What is the best practice for an company that has a staff responsible uploading contents? That is, is there a filter first? Is there a process to validate? Do the staff (or personnel) has a script or steps?, etc.  Does someone in expert exchange has some experience insight on how to best go about this?

Thank u.

Twitter Feed.  Adding a link to a twitter feed does not show a large image.  Even though, in thew code it has the appropriate meta tag.  Some images are the correct (large Size) from a shared link and some are not.  I was researching and I found this:
A page cannot (it seems) reference an image for its [summary_large_image] twitter card, which another page's [summary_large_image] twitter card has already referenced. If it attempts to, the image will not display.

Can anyone confirm this and/or offer a solution?

Introduction to Web Design

Develop a strong foundation and understanding of web design by learning HTML, CSS, and additional tools to help you develop your own website.

I am demonstrating the use of the Instant Pot as a social and weight loss tool for a group of retirees, mostly women.

I and some others in the Instant Pot community view the Instant Pot as a potential way to bring people together around food in a safe, healthy, and affordable way.

The missing piece as I see it is a web-based tool that will allow two people to schedule a meal together, much like a meeting would be scheduled in an office.

It should ideally be as easy as picking up your smartphone to find either a new or existing person or persons to enjoy a fast and healthy meal with.

Any suggestions in locating the right free web-based tool to adapt for this process are greatly appreciated.

Need Podcast options vs. WordPress...

I was considering making a WordPress site and getting a podcast plug-in so that I would have some advanced features.

I have plans to create MP3's, but found many platforms for the simple stuff, like that.

In addition, I would like:

- URL's and/or images associated with each episode
- I need outreach to be pretty easy, so I can communicate with people who follow my podcast
- I have seen other podcasts that once you enroll, the podcast notifies you for various outbound marketing events, like a new episode.
- SEO

What is the name of this type of browser configuration? Once, I had been notified much too often, and un-enrolled. I did this from the browser, I think it was on the Advanced page.

So, please refresh my memory on that, and tell me what podcast solutions provide this.

OR, do I need to make my own WordPress site and get several plug-ins for all this?

Thanks

I'm setting up Windows Server 2016 Standard.
My objective is to have 2 VMs that are connected into their own subnet for a testbed.
I've read about the internal switches, etc. but don't see how to make a physical connection to each of the subnets AND be independent.
(Perhaps the testbed objectives are a bit different than a typical production network).
I am imagining adding a couple of NICs so there will be:
A NIC for the Hyper-V manager.
A NIC for each of the subnets.

A nudge in the right direction would help a lot!

My wife has an instagram account (private) and she declined someone that wanted to follow.  Now, she is reconsidering this person and was wondering if there is any history on the account of who she declined because she has tried to look up what she thinks is the person's instagram account name and nothing comes up.

Re-activating Twitter

I just deleted a bunch of political Tweets and de-activated my account :  CultureWarCrack

but I am "in process" for a fulltime job and the background check started Friday.

I realized it was very bad timing to phase out of Twitter, as I intend to do. It might look like I am hiding something. Lucky, when I googled me, I found I could access to Tweets I had deleted.

And when I went to Settings and Privacy, I expected an "Activate" button, but only found De-Activate.


Is my account de-activated?

Should I try and put those deleted Tweets back, for now? Then, once I am past this review process for this job, I can literally de-activate it and move on.

Please give me your advice.

Thanks.

My client appears to have multiple Facebook URL's:

1.  https://www.facebook.com/therealstevehonnen                            - which we want to keep. This page has an unpublished business page stevehonnenrealtor associated with it.
2.  https://www.facebook.com/Steve-Honnen-1501072590168621/ - which we want to permanently delete
3.  https://www.facebook.com/steve.honnen.33                                   - which we want to permanently delete

How can we delete the pages 2 & 3 without deleting page 1.  I see the option to permanently delete  an account, but concerned that this would delete all the client pages (therealstevehonnen and stevehonnenrealtor)

Hi

I use Twitter, Telegram & RSS feeds to follow new security treats. I also have many groups and users I follow in LinkedIn.

The problem and question:
Each time I start the LinkedIn app all contributions are unsorted. As an example, I have posts that came 1h before, then 6 days ago and the last 2h ago. Why is this so? With Twitter, Telegram, RSS feeds all are sorted as they were posted. The other annoying thing is that when I click the home button it jumps to the uppermost post. Then I must go down to the last post I red. If I still remember it ... :-)

How are you following LinkedIn contributions? Do you use another app?

Thanks for helping me

Does following a podcast normally require you to create a new podcast?

I host my podcast at PodBean, and generally feel like I made a good decision. I assume after I get some traffic, I could consider hosting on my WordPress site...we'll see.

For now, I have given my Podbean URL on a business card to over a hundred people who were really interested in following me. But, according to Podbean, none has shown up as a follower.

The thing abut Podbean, to follow a podcast, you need to create your own podcast. And I fear this is scaring away so many people that otherwise would follow my podcast.

What do you know about hosting my podcast differently so that to follow, you simply click follow. This lack of engagement may be seriously killing my podcast. I mean people tat were really engaged, who got scared away when they were forced to create a podcast.

I distribute on iTunes, Google Play, Youtube, and soon other sites as well.

Have you ever heard of this? I wold consider switching, simply over this requirement. I am stunned that no one has followed my podcast, considering I have given my business card to over a hundred people who saw my presentation and were amazed.

Thoughts?

Thanks
