Being forgotten on the search engines is just about certain links being removed from the public eye, not the actual content; because search engines don't own the contents that appear in the search results when one is searching for specific information.
'Look Up' presents nothing particularly novel in its message, yet it has inevitably captured the zeitgeist of the modern age: a precarious blend of excitement and dread has consumed - and will continue to consume- a species that shares an increasingly close relationship with the technology we have created.
f Twitter is outraged, the whole country is outraged, right? Wrong. Even on racism, this most sensitive of issues, not everyone in the country is outraged. Not everyone wanted Clarkson sacked and not everyone thinks UKIP is a racist party...
The danger of the hashtag is the accompanying sense that the hashtagger has 'done their bit' in a humanitarian crisis. No need to submit a monetary donation, volunteer for a charity or arrange a fundraiser like the good old days; the beauty of social media means that you just have to press a key and you've made somebody's life that little bit better. But have you?
It's more than fair to say she's made some bad choices, and been pretty vocal about them... But why does this grant the Twittersphere permission to lay blame at her door? Why do we have zero compassion for a woman who: A) has been cheated on by her husband. And B) is six months pregnant?
We can't deny that technology is a growing addiction, nor should we ignore it. But before we panic and take away young people's mobile phones, let's see how we can use technology to bring people together and create well-rounded future employees with social skills that extend far beyond social media.
The thing with online abuse like this - so graphic, so violent - is, well, it's hard to explain unless you've experienced it. You think you're ready for it, that you know it's part of the territory. But it still shocks you. I always thought violent misogynistic trolling was reserved for famous or important people leading campaigns, not inconsequential bloggers like me.
The Conservatives are offering a referendum on Europe because they are scared of Ukip. The Labour Party is concerned about immigration because they too are scared of Ukip. It is this effect where Ukip can affect the political and social agenda.
My name is Cynthia, and I am a self-confessed addict. I have an addiction to my smartphone. It's the first thing I look at in the morning, and the last thing at night, and I just can't function without it. So much so, that my hubby has suggested I seek rehab as he simply no longer wishes to compete with it!
Karen sat down and placed her phone on the table, it vibrated and she glanced at the message. My phone was also out, I pressed the home button but the last few seconds had not brought any new information. She smiled at her alert then placed the phone face up next to her drink.
The hashtag, which was conceived by Ibrahim Abdullahi, a Nigerian lawyer, was first tweeted a week after the reports of the kidnapping had emerged. Observers had widely criticised the Nigerian government's response to the crisis, claiming it had failed to act decisively to get the children back.
While the short term profits certainly look good for Facebook, in the longterm, these changes, if they persist in becoming more and more restrictive of what we see, then Facebook will only serve to push people away as it becomes less of a social network, and more of a drag.
Do you find that being "too busy" stops you from achieving what you want to achieve each day, each week or even each year? Managing your time and your productivity yourself is the only way to stop the busyness and start doing what matters.
vInspired's Swing The Vote campaign is calling on all party leaders to pledge to deliver their top five election promises affecting under 25s on to Twitter. Around two-thirds of young people in the OnePoll survey said politics would be "easier to digest and understand" if delivered on Twitter.
Use the advent of new systems of communication to broaden your horizons, to learn and experience new things. Exploit the decline of party politics: now is the chance to develop opinions without the limiting nature of partisan groupthink.
The fact is that it's SO easy to get fixated on the numbers. I know what it's like to be chasing the next big milestone - the next round hundred or thousand. I'd look at other pages for women business owners and get downhearted that they had way more likes than me.
