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.

Share tech news, updates, or what's on your mind.

I lost a URL to a site where you could type the hashtag and find the number of followers.

This way I could see if #Harvey as bigger than #Harvey2017 or #HarveyHurricane.

Does anyone have that free service?

Thanks.

Is posting a message to my entire network as easy as clicking the pencil icon next to Messages, then creating a message with no recipients?

If not, how do I do this?

I installed WhatsApp and need to help someone connect to me. What do I provide?

I do not have an account yet. Where do I sign up?

I also have an iPhone 7. Once I register, do I download the app and just log in?

I need to share my desktop for a presentation, so hopefully, WhatsApp supports screen sharing, like Skype. I have a Mac and want to present a Powerpoint Presentation running in Windows 7 on Parallels.

For this to work, can I install WhatsApp on my Mac? Then, load Parallels, Windows and Powerpoint?

Or, do I need to install WhatsApp on Windows?

That is interesting. It's always a shock to see the introduction of a new generation. So, now we've got Gen Z. Are hitting the Alphabet next? I'm what's known as a Tweener: 1960 - 1965. Because that Baby Boomer Generation went on far too long...

In a meeting some time back, a comment was thrown on the table that over 88% of companies in the US, with 100+ employees, are using social media.  We don't have any social media presences and are now considering it - we did started setting up just accounts for social media that was mention in that meeting (facebook, tweeter, linkedin, youtube, instagram, pinterest).

We understand this is a vast subject, and maybe complicated, but would greatly appreciated any EE that may have some experience in the topic, share their advice  in:

- what to consider prior.
- which social media get into first.
- how many should we set up in.
- doing this less monies possible (as a start).

Thank you in advance.

I initially created a profile with just first name and last initial because I didn't want anyone finding it as I was working on it.

So,
My URL looks like:  

https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-t-803ra5sabb7/
              instead of something friendlier like:
https://www.linkedin.com/in/timothyleeyoung/

Is that an issue?

Can I make my linkedin profile private until I'm ready to unveil it?

Thanks
Mike

Is it possible to have a place where people with different age range will hang together?

It sounds funny, and I think Kyle can also attest to it, but Pokemon Go achieves this. I've done raids that have included elementary aged kids and retirees. I've seen a lot of stories about children playing with their parents and grandparents and rejuvenating their relationships. The key to achieving this balance could be giving the users something on which to focus besides their own social lives. A 16 year old's social interests most likely won't align with a 30 year old's interests, but creating a common goal that interests people of any age can bring their worlds together.

What technology do you think is a fad that won’t last?

Found another one: Snapchat spectacles. Okay, I'll admit I wanted one but I would've probably used it for a day and gotten bored. Also, I don't even have Snapchat.

Hello Experts,

I'm trying to search businesses in LinkedIN with the following search criteria:

cloud architects london

However, the search only lists 8 companies, but there is clearly more than 8 companies.

Can someone let me know why I'm not seeing the full list of companies?

Cheers

New feature! Upgrade and increase expert visibility of your issues with Priority Questions.

My friend says her MacBook locks up when she start using Dropbox. And neither of us like Google, so Google Drive is out.

"Large": 250 MB or so...

What is a good free platform for large file sharing?

I could delete the file after transferred, if there is a cap on the file space permitted...

It needs to work on Windows also, but mainly Mac.

Thanks.

Experts Exchange is based in San Luis Obispo, otherwise known to locals as 'SLO'.  The city of SLO lost a valued member of its community a few months ago.  
Frank [Stone] built a reputation for “diligence and accuracy as a premier source of public safety news and reporting up and down the Central Coast"

Recently, the city's assemblyman voted for a bill to name a portion of its highway to this man.  On to the California State Senate Rules Committee.  I hope it passes there as well.

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?

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.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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.
