Facebook And That Little Flower Reaction

Ya know, I thought people had better memories than they seem to. This past week on Facebook, I noticed people talking about a little “flower” reaction, alongside the usual heart, laugh, cry, anger, and all that.

You Asked For It

Social media, by design, is an outlet for people to express themselves, and share their opinions. Anyone with any active social media presence will inevitably see someone, somewhere “complaining” about something, and if you are the average person, it probably annoys you.

No, Your Astrological Sign Didn’t Change (Not That It Matters Anyway)

Not that I care whatsoever for such outright silly superstition, but it has to be said, because those posts are annoying the hell out of me.

Someone has changed the subject on you, via some method or another, and by the …

Let’s Talk About Facebook

I have quite the love-hate relationship with the social media service Facebook. It’s my primary online way to keep in touch with many people, both close friends and acquaintances in the gaming and convention scenes. It’s also a useful enough service for discussing various subjects I’m interested in (I’m a member of quite a few …

The logic of Like and Dislike in Social Media

Why I ditched the Facebook mobile app

This would seem like something silly to write about. Why would it matter that I uninstalled on app from my cell phone? Because this serves as a prime case where several minor issues have ruined my experience to the point where the app is no longer worth having on my device. Now, my phone is …

Blogging in the Mobile Era: Full Scale Blogging with Mobile Systems

Let’s face it: mobile devices are taking over every aspect of our digital lives. Why sit in front of a massive desktop tower, or lug around a 10 lb laptop, when a tablet PC, or even your cell phone, can do everything you need to do both on and offline?  With seamless integration into social …
