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 need to turn on email alerts to notify me of a new Like or new Follow on Twitter. How do I do this?

And I have the app ruing on my iPhone 6 and get an alert on my cell-phone. If I need to turn this off, how do I do so?

Thanks

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I recently watched a video on Moz.com, who are recognised by many as experts in social media and SEO.  The video I watched was recommending a strategy that suggested that to maximise the use of each unique tweet, you should seek to schedule the same tweet multiple times over two weeks (it was suggested 7 times over two weeks) AND at different times, acknowledging the fact that the average Twitter user only spend 13 minutes per day on the platform, so unless you scheduled at different times, the size of audience you would hit through a single tweet posted once was minimal.

However, looking at Twitters policy, it would appear that multiple posting of the same tweet is spam

Question to Answer
1. Is there a limit to the number of times you can retweet a tweet?
2. If you can retweet a tweet without it being seen as spam by twitter, how many retweets over what period of time (e.g. 1 tweet retweeted 3 x over 2 weeks - just and example) would you recommend?
3. What is the maximum number of tweets you could post in a single day without it being seen as spam? (have seen forums suggesting anything in excess of 10 would be seen as spam by twitter)

Thanks in advance,
David

I have a book I am coming out with and would like to make it easy for people to click a button or URL and have that open Twitter with a default Tweet I could embed in my doc. If they want to send it as is, great.

Also, can I attach an image to this?

Also, how can  I do this with Facebook also?

I guess a link could easily be pasted but that would include MY Twitter account. Is that desired? Would that mean I need to make the tweet before I can paste it into the PDF?

Thanks.

I have multiple pages but none of my credentials are for my business page.  I have tried my various logins and they all go to the personal page.

I can get to the business page via logging into the personal page but my socialpilot s/w says I have to have the credentials for business page for it to post content to my business fb page.

How can I find out the credentials for my business page?

With other everyday lifestyle 'Watching Movie' is one of my passion. I don't watch all kinds of movies. My choices are specific. So I want to create a 'Collection of my Favorite Movies' in a Database. My queries to the Expert Exchange Communities are :

1. From the scratch how can I 'Publish it Online?' e.g. A Blog Or Website (created free in some free blog/site creating platforms).

2. My purpose is to informing the audience about my favorite movies - which are inspirational, nearest to the reality, based on real events and so many other reasons that can be attracted by any open minded audience. Is my purpose makes any sense?

3. I will provide as much possible information as I can about the movies including posters & screenshots (some may be collected and some are created by myself). Are these will be legal?

4. I have an intention also to put one or more 'Links/URL' to the database that for where I have watched them. Can I?

5. I want to keep a option for the audience to post their valuable 'Comments' on the movies I would mention there. Possible?

6. Finally I would like to confess that my goal is not something like 'Non-Profitable Social Work'. I am a simple middle class person with a limited financial capability. So if I get any legal offer from any legal authority to promote my work with 'Ad's or something profitable may be I will accept the offer. Is there any legal issue with that?

I recall a few years ago that I used a program similar to Skype which allowed me to have private conversations via this tool.

There was some sort of key that I generated on my PC and emailed to the other person, which that person added to this tool. We then have "private" conversations.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? That does tool, or another, offer this today?

Thanks.

I plant to start a political podcast in the near future, but want to plan ahead so it can be successful.

I have lots of questions...

- What is the ideal length? 1 hour per week? Can it vary in length based on length of the content?

- What are some good ways to promote my podcast?

- Are there any income earning opportunities from a podcast with a lot of listeners?

- What are the listenership for some of the more successful podcasts?

- What kinds of "do's" and "don'ts" are there?

I could plan to apply some budget to promotion. If Facebook the best?

Thanks.

We have a sonicwall firewall (DELL Sonicwall TZ600), that is restricting access to pinterest.com.  We have both pinterest.com and pin.it listed as sites to always be allowed by our content filtering.  Is there anyway to get pinterest to come through, without allowing all social media?  We have confirmed different PCs with different Windows OS versions and different browsers (firefox, chrome, IE, and Edge) cannot get into the site.  They get to the pinterest login screen, but then after that they get an empty screen, and do not get access to the site.

I'm working on a project at work and we need to have the social sites added to the project. For example share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+.

We're going to share charts. This is an example https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CPIAUCSL
Click on any social links listed and the graph is shared.

How is this done? I've been googling and came across some examples on how to add the buttons but how do I actually share the graph/data?

Am an Admin for a very large Facebook community (+400 k members).  
In the last 24 hours have seen 858 posts, with no information and I can not remove them.  That is ghost posts.  Issue has been reported to FB with no reply.  We average about 500 posts per day but I have never seen this issue before.  No abnormal volume of spam issues have occurred, we monitor the group very closely 24/7.
Attached is a screen shot.  It does not provide alot of detail.

Thanks alot

I have dozens of products and services I have created over many decades and need to host them on the web.

How do I do this most easily?

I have a WordPress site, so is there a WordPress plug-in?

I could use LinkedIn, since that is where I also post my professional connections and qualifications. Does LinkedIn support this?

Or are the outside website which support this?

I do not want to deal with creating a website for this, but could, if needed. I would like the titles of each project to be a collapsible heading, and enable them to open up any one topic and drill down.

Is there an open source website that does this already where I can insert my own HTML pages?

Please make suggestions.

Thanks.

If I plug my Bose wired headset into the iPhone, both left and right work fine.

https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/headphones/over_ear_headphones/soundlink-around-ear-wireless-headphones-ii.html?mc=25_PS_HP_PL_00_GO_&gclid=CIGXgJG5zNMCFddWDQodQGsOzA

When I plug the headset in to Headset jack on my MacBook (El Capitan) both left and right also work fine. But when I use the Bose Splitter, only the right speaker work on the headset.

Bose Splitter
Is there some configuration problem on my MacBook? Is it possible that splitter failed after 1 year?

I'd rather explore a software fix before I buy any more hardware as a test.

BTW: What is that splitter called? If I recall, I need this when making a Skype call to provide better microphone transmission, otherwise the other person can not hear me.
 
Thanks.

Adults who share images on social media aren’t the only ones who need to worry about their privacy. Our culture’s tendency to share every move and celebration affects the privacy of our children, too.

On my cell phone , I log into Skype using my work credentials, so I can stay attuned of uptime issues that occur off hours. So when someone Skypes me on my personal Skype, I only see it if I log into my PC.

Is there a way to resolve this? Or can Skype email me when a message is sent to me?

Thanks

Trying to help someone with snap spectacles.  But I don't know the 2nd thing about them (I do know the 1st thing /  bare basics from seeing others from using them / seeing the packaging, but that's it)

They say the unit doesn't charge - either from the case or from the cable.  They say the case does charge.

They sent me this video.  Can you look at it and tell me what is good / bad in it?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8mjbesmmcfcnng2/Vid%C3%A9o%2013-03-17%2018%2027%2012.mov?dl=0


The case shows a 1/2 charge, right?

The spectacles go in the case and full circle light up - is that the charge level?

what's that single light at the bottom of the circle flashing mean?

Then they hold the top button to do a reset per the snap tech support.

any comments / thoughts?
