How to See What Twitter Thinks It Knows About You

How to See What Twitter Thinks It Knows About You
Twitter tracks surfers through the netTo learn more about users, Twitter now uses so-called tracking cookies. If you do not want to be observed during surfing, you can turn it off 🙂

The Twitter short message service has changed its privacy policy and its terms of use. Most important innovation: The Twitter button, which is installed on many websites to share their content, now has an espionage function.

On the company’s blog, Othman Laraki, who is responsible for “growth”, announced that it would make Twitter more accessible to new users, and to implement “tailored suggestions”, ie, user-specific recommendations.

Twitter is actually a cross for beginners. The real benefit can be drawn from the service, who has assembled a list of people who are interested in and whose tweets he wants to follow. This search however can be frustrating in the sea at pseudonyms and nicknames. As a result, new users will be offered interesting accounts for them.

A comprehensible idea for a manager who cares about the growth of the company. The problem is the necessary data. In order to be able to suggest something new to a new user, it must already know it before it logs in at all. Exactly this is now a big task!.

Tracking cookies

The Twitter button, which is integrated on many pages, to share texts, videos or pictures, can therefore be even more in the future. It now contains a script that looks at every browser and leaves it a so-called cookie

It is as if a couple of joking folks put a piece of paper on the back of the schoolyard. Anyone who can see the note afterwards now knows that the bearer has passed the rumble. And thanks to these so-called tracking cookies, Twitter now knows which websites a browser and its users have visited before.

If a new user comes to the page of Twitter, they search for the cookies and sees, for example, that the one was often at Spiegel Online and rarely at the Focus. As a result, Twitter suggests to follow users who have a similar surfing behavior – tailored suggestions. This is currently being tested with “some users”, says the announcement. In the future, however, it could become the standard to recommend regular things for regular twitter users

Although these data will be deleted after 18 months and Twitter is assured that it will not be passed on to anyone. Nevertheless, such collections are regularly used by data protectors to shake the head. Twitter is trying to dispel these concerns with another announcement.

Privacy is not the default setting

At the same time, the company stated that the service would respect the so-called Do-Not-Track Initiative. Different browsers now offer the possibility to tell other websites that the user does not want to be tracked. To do this, the Firefox in the settings under Privacy, the point “Websites that I do not want to be tracked” must be attached. Internet Explorer and Chrome also allow this, the latter via a program, which must be installed additionally.

This works however only, if the opposite, ie the visited website, which also accepts. The fact that Twitter is part of it is at least a signal. However, it is nice and good and more than Facebook is willing to do. It is not enough. In fact, such monitoring procedures can only be used if the surfer has explicitly agreed with them and not if they can shut them down, but they can only apply to them all.

How a Blogger Can Generate Topic Ideas In Less Than a Minute?

There are some excellent online resources for a blogger to generate topic ideas. I have talked about some of the resources in this blog post.

Bloggers, irrespective of experience do encounter ‘idea black outs’ once in a way. There are no exceptions and I have faced quite often these ‘author’s block’ since I started blogging in 2005. It’s familiar to all bloggers.  Even though the first few months of starting a new niche blog would have made you update it with search engine friendly content with the right keywords at the right places, the topic idea bulb will go dark.

This temporary blog topics idea poverty will happen rare if you are dealing with multiple keywords and niches.

How to overcome this topic idea shortage?

  1. I stop blogging for a week or two. After that brief absence, I couldn’t wait to switch on my PC and suddenly, my mind will be flooded with topics.
  2. If I am not able to afford to lay myself off, I turn to the following resources and they will oblige me with instant results on my queries. I call them content creation tools.

Just A Baby App Matches Hopeful Parents

Just A Baby App Matches Hopeful Parents

Just a baby App” – Innovative smartphone application is designed to meet couples who are need of children

Childless couples can find the ideal sperm donor for artificial insemination with the “Just a baby App” is a smartphone app. Thanks to numerous profiles with photos and information.

Minimum age 17 years

Seeking swipes through profiles where photos of potential sperm donors and a few indications, such as age, occupation and relationship status are to be found. If the user is looking for a profile, he or she can start a private chat with the appropriate donor and thus clarify everything else. However, to download the application, a user must be at least 17 years old.

The impetus for the development of Just a baby App gave the Australian developers Paul Ryan and Gerald Edwards above all the increasing number of same-sex relationships and the ever stronger pressure against traditional models of family. The idea behind the app, however, is not new, because the “London Sperm Bank Donors” service can also help childless couples find their desired donor in a targeted manner.

Just A Baby App  _1

Help with legal

“Just a baby App App” not only connects searchers with donors, but also helps with legal questions: “Once you have found the ideal donor, we can help you connect with family counseling, fertility clinics and legal services to make your path self-confident Just download the ‘Just a baby App’ app, swipe and found a family, ‘it says. Both the Google Play Store for Android devices and the App Store are available for download.

Banalization and marketing of human beings

The app “is nothing more than the banalization and marketing of man,” says Infovaticana. It combines egg and seed dispensers with “bearers”. “Surrogacy” is an euphemism with which “dehumanised” and “dehumanizing” are to be eloquently spoken.

Behind this is the unrestrained egoism of the unrestrained “I want” (a child, as I wish it, male, blond, blue-eyed …) and an equally unrestrained, boundless profit-thinking, for “profit is everything”.

The desired child can be ordered as desired: physical properties, appearance. Sarah for example, “a 26 year old woman, lesbian, wants a child with blue eyes”. Markus, “a 36 year old man, wants to start a family with his gay partner”. These are the “business partners” of the new trade branch.

To name things: “Just a baby App” is a homo app intended to provide homosexual children who have excluded them by their personal choice for a particular lifestyle with special sexual “likes”. The advertising film of “Just a baby App” speaks a clear language, which the makers see as a target audience.

The child as a sales object

The child becomes a selling object for those who are denied nature or children. Hurdles, norms, limitations? None. Whether sexually perverse want to procure only a “sex toy”, including pedophiles, no one asks. Neither Apple nor Google seems to touch the question. One consequence of modern child trafficking is the “production” of children who are mentally condemned to crippling.

While states and international institutions such as the United Nations are calling for the fight against trafficking in human beings and child slavery, a new dark business is emerging, whose trades are people, children.

“Just a baby App”, that’s how simple it is and shows the unscrupulousness of internet giants who know best about the dangers of the global network.

The two app developers Paul Ryan and Gerard Edwards, two Australians, want to promote “acceptance of same-sex relationships” according to their own statements.

Google I/O 2017  Annual Developer Festival Held

Google I/O 2017  Annual Developer Festival Held

Google I/O 2017: This  Google’s developer conference ended with 101 announcements

The Google I/O is a yearly developer conference from Google. Since 2008, people from all over the world have been traveling to San Francisco to attend the company’s product presentations and announcements from the Mountain View and listen to lectures from Google employees. The topic spectrum is always broadly diversified and is addressed explicitly to a technically savvy specialist audience. In the past, the event featured Android OS, Google Glass, Android Wear and Hangouts.

Google I/O _1

In the last three days everything was under the sign of the developer conference Google I/O and they heard many announcements there. Now the Google I/O developer conference is over and Google itself draws a conclusion from the event and has published an overview, in which all announcements are listed. In fact, during these three days, 101 announcements were made, some of which are already available.

As every year, Google’s developers save a series of announcements for the big show stage, which are then announced directly on the Google I/O – and best still on the keynote. There were fewer announcements this year than in the previous years, but this may be due to the fact that the developers only had improvements in their favored, but did not present or launch a single new product in Google I/O conference.

An overview of the most important innovations happened thro’ Google I/O:

Google Lens – new start with the picture search

Google’s CEO was very much excited to introduce the Google Lens in Google I/O conference. Google has already made several attempts to transform the visual search into the mainstream; Veterans of the Android early times may remember the Google image recognition app. “Google Lens”, which is integrated into the “GoogleAssistant” software and this boomed into a new start.

Google Lens” recognizes, for example, objects in the search field of the mobile phone camera and proposes actions or steps itself to act. Anyone who photographed a flower does not only display the name of the species, but can also be taken to the florist nearby. Scanning the WiFi code at the bottom of the router ensures that the smartphone logs in at the same time. In addition, photos with the Google lens will “blur” blurred motifs even better “and soon even auto-retouch photo obstacles away – instead of the smartphone camera puts the software in the center.

Google I/O _4

The “Virtual Positioning System” (VPS), a combination of the Augmented reality platform “Tango” and Google Maps, shows how far Google’s trained image recognition is. VPS is intended to allow navigation in closed rooms by scanning the objects there and matching them with a database. For example, consumers can find certain products in supermarkets easier when they look at their smartphone while walking.

The trend towards smart lenses is followed by the whole industry, among other things Facebook wants to use the camera more strongly for the identification, the change of pictures and the superimposing of digital objects.

Android O – small changes planned

Another innovative announcement in Google I/O conference is Android O. Initially available in the beta version, accessible from the summer, but still without nicknames: “Android O” is the latest version of the smartphone operating system currently equipped with two billion active devices.

The changes that Google is presenting are, above all, details that are meant to make everyday life easier. For example, a picture-in-picture function allows you to make notes or scroll through the calendar in video chat. Android O also allows the automatic completion of passwords for apps other than Google. The notifications in apps receive small speech bubbles, so that a constant call will no longer be necessary.

In the Play Store, Google promises more security, with batteries more runtime and with the light version “Android Go” an optimization for low-budget smartphones (memory of 512 megabytes / one gigabyte). As always, such promises can only be answered as soon as the “O” update is available. And here many users are still dependent on the schedule of manufacturers or providers.

Google Assistant

According to CEO Sundar Pichai declared in Google I/O Conference, is the organization and operating software Google Assistant currently has 100 million users. To make it more, more languages will be released in the coming months. In addition, the app is now available for Apple’s iOS devices. The opening of the wizard for developers is intended to enable the control of further devices and programs. The command center in the smartphone and voice control era is a major goal of companies such as Microsoft (Cortana), Apple (Siri) or Amazon (Alexa). To simplify operation in noisy environments, however, you can also use typed commands in Google Assistant.

Google Home sends visual answers

Googles command-receiving loudspeaker Home is also a fantabulous annoucement in Google I/O. The competitor of Amazons Echo, is to be launched in this summer. Exact details on prices are not yet available, in the US, the device supposed to costs around 130 US dollars. Functional updates are provided with a telephone function (“call mama on”), the integration of Spotify, Deezer and SoundCloud as well as the display of visual answers if a screen is nearby – think of it A calendar or Google Maps.

The virtual reality software Daydream will run on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and on the next premium smartphones from LG. Own data glasses are to be produced together with partners.

As always, the innovations cover Google’s money, especially on the search for text, and thus remains the golden goose of the parent company’s alphabet. In the past quarter, Alphabet reported $ 5.43 billion in profits, while growth rates were in profit as well as sales at more than 20 percent.

This growth is probably due to the fact that the company has greatly expanded the number of ads in mobile search results. A success of the visual search on smartphones could create more opportunities for advertising ads
