    Are You Responsible for Your Child’s Online Reputation?

    Learn how you the Parent Can Protect Your Children’s Reputation

    In a world where social media had become a way of life, it was inevitable that it would soon destroy areas it was never meant to be in the first place. You know what I’m talking about and have probably seen it – the photos, videos and social medial status updates of frustrated parents venting about their children. Without even thinking twice, parents will post the latest mistakes and wrong decisions of their children, putting their shame on the web for the entire world to see, forever scarring them without even knowing it.

    So what’s the problem you ask? Well, there seems to be a growing trend of parents ridiculing and demeaning their kids on social media sites. In other words, parents are using social media to publicly shame their children for their acts of wrongdoing…this is nothing less than parental bullying if you ask me and should be of great concern, especially for the sake of the children’s future and reputation.

    The question is not whether posting a cute picture of our children or updating our status with a silly anecdote revolving around them is right or wrong. The question is whether it will have any impact on their future or reputation.

    10 Must Known Tips be a Successful Female Entrepreneur

    Women aren’t the only ones to worry about work/life balance, of course, but it’s often a more pressing issue for them than it is for men.

    Being a female entrepreneur myself I noticed that we were never really taught what goes into running a business. We start with big dreams and follow our passion when we step out in faith and start our business. But most of us never fully comprehend that others can only teach us up to a certain point – the rest of the knowledge arrives as hard lessons.

    As an online marketing strategist I’ve been working with female entrepreneurs for over 5 years. I like to listen to their story, work with them through challenges, and help them through shifts in business. After my years of experience, I now clearly see that most women face parallel challenges. I’m pretty certain that my own challenges have been similar to yours.

    Whether you are a newbie to business life, or have years of experience, being a female entrepreneur is a challenge in itself!

    Here are a few helpful tips to help your business grown and expand while maintaining your life, sanity, and dignity aside from your business world!

    How to be a Social Media Gold Medalist?

      Since the 2014 Sochi Olympics opening ceremonies, many of us have been totally consumed with the Olympics.  We cheer for our country’s teams, pick our favourite athletes and stay up until the wee hours of the morning just to be able to see their performances.  Almost 2,500 athletes are there for one goal, and […]

  • How the use of #Hashtag Shapes our Language

    Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon in a comedy skit hilariously recreated a normal human conversation… but with the ridiculousness of hashtags quickly added to every statement. This gives you a feel how we all sound like on Twitter. Or on Facebook. Or on Instagram. Or in Pinterest.

    Facebook Introduces Searchable Hashtags

     

    Today, on a blog post, Facebook announced that they are rolling out searchable hashtags as well more features in an effort to play a greater role in real-time public conversations.

    Not that you couldn’t include hashtags on Facebook before, they just weren’t linkable as it is on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or Pinteres.

    From now users will be able to click a hashtag to see a feed of discussions about a particular topic. For example, typing a number sign in front of “beaches” or “dinner” will turn the words into a link that users can click on to find posts about beaches or dinners.

    Starting today you can:

    • Search for a specific hashtag from your search bar. For example, #FloridaBeaches
    • Click on hashtags that originate on other services, such as Instagram.
    • Compose posts directly from the hashtag feed and search results.
