Always Laugh When You Can ... | We Heart It

Started using WHI (We Heart It). Know what you're thinking. There's Pinterest, Scoop.it, StumbleUpon, etc. Why create another set of collections? Why? Because they share really good stuff on WHI that is different from my findings elsewhere on the web and because it's so easy to click that little “heart” button on the images. I have a Tumblr blog and lots of folks on Tumblr use it. That's how I found the site. 

This lovely quote by Lord Byron is my 100th “heart”. ♥


Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine. | WHI
Found on yoursummerdreamz.tumblr.com and hearted and shared by @xLostMemories




Currently maintaining four collections: 
  1. My Style
  2. Art and Photography
  3. Food Cravings & Lust;
  4. There's No Place like Home.

Why Do You Want to Be Friends?

One of the members in another community wrote about social media addiction. I left a comment but this is sort of a follow up. My additional thoughts are much too lengthy to put in a comments box.


I'm not addicted to social media. For me, it's a form of free advertising; plain and simple. I have affiliate marketing websites and blogs. I have to share them somewhere to get traffic to them. But it's also a way to meet new people and make friends; something that's hard to do since I work from home.


Been active on Facebook for well over 5 years. That's what my Facebook memories indicate. I've lost track of the time. I rarely send out friend requests. Perhaps I might meet somebody elsewhere in another community, so I connect with them via FB because it's easy. I recognize them from elsewhere. They usually recognize me. So they click the “Confirm” button.





For about a year, I have been getting requests from people I don't know. I imagine that my profile has somehow gained visibility and people who see my activity want to hook up. I actually had a person click a feature that lets them follow me because my timeline is interesting to them. I'm OK with getting friend requests from strangers. Many of our friends were once a stranger to us. What I'm not OK with is that suspicious feeling of not knowing IF these are real people. Especially the ones with new profiles. I don't want to ignore a human being who is just seeking friendship. But I also don't want some “deadbeat ghost faker” latched on to my profile and following me around. Why?  It feels so queer.  It's not as if I'm a celebrity.  Not that stalking celebrities is OK.  But latching on a nobody also opens a door for "interpretation of one's true intent".


Sometimes I accept friend requests from people I don't know and sometimes I don't. How do I choose? Once might accuse me of “racial profiling”. But I know for a fact it's just “wild guessing”. I look at the person's profile, see if there's something that looks like we have a commonality (or not), and I might click “Confirm” or I might click “Delete”. Sometimes I confirm and go back later and delete. Why? Eh! There was really nothing happening to keep us connected. I had some down time, so I cleaned up my “Friends” network. It's just housekeeping. Nothing personal. After all, it was you who approached with me with the friend request. If you didn't really want to associate with me then why did you send me the friend request in the first place?


I set a goal a while back to reach a Facebook social network of 1000. I've been at 900+ for years. Never knew that goal would be so hard to attain. On Google Plus I'm at 5000 and I don't even know it happened!! Why 1000 for Facebook? Uuumm … it's a round even number. I like round numbers.


Summarizing my thoughts:


Facebook is called Facebookistan because it's membership is large enough for the network to be its own country!

FACT: “... Facebook connects more than nine hundred million monthly users, some 80 percent outside of the United States” (Source: First Stop on the Electronic Silk Road: “Facebookistan”. Blog.yalebooks.com. Yale Books Unbound, 07 Aug. 2013. )



Why?

Out of more than 900 million users, why did you pick me to send me a friend request to?



What is that makes people from various parts of the world that I've never met want to send me a friend request?

myLot.com - Can First Impressions Be Trusted?

Active member of various online writing communities and at the urging of a couple of fellow bloggers, decided to sign up with myLot.com which is YASM, yet another social network. It is a combination of things but in a nutshell, it's a huge discussion forum that welcomes everybody to participate. FREE to sign up. Start immediately.  

This site was "rebooted".  Started in 2006; had been popular at one time, lost the momentum, revamped and now as of 2015, the owners are revved up and forging ahead full speed.



Very impressed with my experience thus far. In fact, have already published one review (see * below); and this blog post is more or less a review / progress report.

At myLot, you don't get paid for writing posts. Rather you are encouraged to generate discussions. When you write up a quick post or a lengthy article (there are no requirements on character counts, word count, etc.), the more feedback that's generated, the more likely you are to earn money.  The payout is $10 and you must have a PayPal account.

Within less than a week, 15 discussions (see list below) have been started by me.  People are leaving responses or comments at most of them, and the interest being expressed in my topics is encouraging.  Hoping to make more friends.  The members seem to be enthusiastic.  The earnings potential is definitely there.

Accidental Google Leads to Gold Mine

Signed up to participate in a social network because ... just looking for another place to share stuff besides the well-known and over-used social media networks where all the same people seem to be. In other words, hoping to find a different audience to promote and share my writings, blogs and websites.




Anyway ... at this network, wrote a comment about one of the member's uploaded image - movie art or poster for a gangsta movie (not sure) - and copied it into the Comments box. Some other thought came to my mind while perusing the posts stream. Did not realize my remarks were still in the clipboard and wanted to search for something else via Google. The words in my clipboard were accidentally copied into the search engine box ... hit the search button and POP! Before I knew it, a string of search results.



Below are my accidental Google statements and a few of the results.

Seriously bad bad men in real life. These guys did a great job acting like bad guys.”

WOW! The other links are just garbage to me. But that Classic Images website is a Gold Mine!! 

Love old movies and reading about the actors and actresses from back "when the lion roared". :)

Throwback: Joe Cocker (1944 - 2014)

Been a part of the Google Plus social network for a few years and one of the fun things they do is called "Throwback Thursday". It is so fun. People share stuff from back in the day. Usually my shares are YouTube videos.

In Memory Of:
* Joe Cocker (1944 - 2014)



FYI. Definition of “throwback” from the Urban Dictionary.

How Pinterest Uses Your Content Without Violating Copyright Laws

How Pinterest Uses Your Content Without Violating Copyright Laws

  • Pinterest, the increasingly popular pinboarding social network, is able to present a visually arresting interface in large part by using copyrighted images pinned by users.  "It's a huge concern for creative bloggers," said Amy Anderson, who blogs on the arts and crafts site Crafter Minds. "I don't think Pinterest does anything to help protect copyright besides removing content when people ask."

Tumblr and Google Plus, Ink!

Tumblr is a blogging platform and social sharing site that is very easy to use. 

Google Plus is a social network that is taking some getting used to but once you get the knack it can be lots of fun.

Tumblr knows that Google Plus communities have great potential so there is a Tumblr G+ community. This is an indirect route that is being taken to introduce others to an artist based in the Ukraine named Igor Amazonenco. He does ink portraits and his artwork is amazing!

Do You Like Selfies? Then You'll Like Facefeed.

Are you into selfies? I'm not. I'm into rainbows. Apparently there's a great new app called Facefeed. You don't have to connect it to your email or social feeds like Facebook, which means you can put your face out there and share all your "cheese grins" without the whole wide world getting all up in your face. Awesome if you have a nice face. The way I look these days, my mug shot will not be distributed! I don't deceive myself. I'm Treathyl Fox. Not Megan Fox. :)
