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.

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.

JavaScript Best Practices

Save hours in development time and avoid common mistakes by learning the best practices to use for JavaScript.

Despite many hours of searching, I can't seem to find a cause for this behaviour and it's driving me nuts, so I'm hoping some other experts can weigh in with a solution.

When posting on Facebook, I expect and usually get the following comment box:

FB Comment Box with Camera Icon
Then for no apparent reason that I've been able to determine, the comment box turns into the following:

FB Comment Box with No Camera Icon
What the hell? It doesn't seem to be browser-specific as I've noted it happens in Google Chrome, Brave, Avast Secure Browser, Internet Explorer, and FireFox. (Yeah I know, but I'm testing a lot of browsers for a future article) :)

There seems to be no particular pattern to "when" it happens - it just seems to happen at random times for no particular reason.

Refreshing the browser doesn't help. Closing the browser completely and opening it again often resolves the problem.  

But even when it occurs and I don't close the browser, I can open a new tab, go to another facebook page (say my own Facebook page) and the camera icon is there and can be used. (?!)

I've disabled all extensions and still had it occur.

The camera icon is needed to be able to attach a photo into a comment that is saved on the hard drive.

I dislike being beaten, but I'm at a loss here. Help! :)

Has anyone found the cause of this and how to stop it happening?

Cheers.

Hi,

We have a YouTube channel which we use to upload videos of recent football matches for local team.

We would like to make it that people can't subscribe to this channel.

The reason for this is that we have a newsletter that goes out each week and the uploaded YouTube videos are part of the newsletter.

We don't want people seeing these videos until the newsletter comes out as only people who read the newsletter should have access to the videos.

1. Do subscribers of YouTube channels get notified when videos are put up, even videos categorised as "unlisted"?

2. How would we make it that our channel has no subscribers and does not allow for subscriptions?

Thanks,
Robbie

I was asked to verify login after #FacebookDown two days ago.

When I submit this error comes up - "It looks like you’re using this feature in a way it wasn’t meant to be used. Please slow down, or you could be blocked from using it."Facebook Error Code
I have submitted forms letting them know about login errors.
I have also attempted to submit form to verify my account w/ my ID but it's showing this error: Error 2
Which also indicates to me that I have not violate any TOS - I am very aware of the rules and do not spam or appear to spam.

I went to bed with a working profile and woke up to this, so I'm assuming this is a result of the outage.  

I can not log into to business manager or my profile. My profile appears blocked, according to my friends.
I have tried several devices.

It appears to me that this is a widespread issue, but I'm wondering if anyone had any insight/solution/way to contact FB.

Thanks!

Hello,

I have a personal Facebook page.

I want to create a pages for my businesses.

Do I create my business page under my personal account? If no, then what are the steps to follow? I have found different advices online and I don't know which one to follow.

After doing that, is it advisable that I link Instagram to my Facebook business page? I saw an option on FB that does that. Do I use it? Or shall I keep each page separate?

Thanks,

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

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'm currently developing a custom social networking site for a client using WordPress / BuddyPress.  

One of the things that's bothering my client about the theme we're using/customizing (Twenty Sixteen) is that the BuddyPress profile menu isn't "fixed" or "sticky"  (he doesn't like the way the menu disappears when you scroll down the page).  

I understand that it's possible to have a fixed WordPress navigation menu (depending on what theme is installed and activated, and how that theme's settings are configured) .. but I can't seem to find any BuddyPress specific WordPress themes that allow for a fixed BuddyPress profile menu.  Does anyone here know if or where I might be able to find a theme like this .. or if such a thing even exists?  We're willing to purchase a Premium theme if necessary.  

Thanks,
- Yvan
