Facebook introduced a ‘fan subscription feature’ which allows creators to share ‘exclusive’ contents with their fans with a membership fee. This allows creators to generate money straight from their follower/fans. Few years ago, Facebook have launched a group subscription feature which allows group admins to charge $4.99 to $29.99 per month for membership access. Unlike the earlier subscription feature which gained seemed to get some positive traction, Facebook’s fan subscription is meeting resistance from online creators. The feature is currently at its beta stage with creators taking 100% of the revenue, however, this will change once the feature is rolled out with the company taking out 30% from its subscription revenue. In addition, Facebook will hold the rights for all the contents created within the platform as stated in under the Supplemental clause within its terms and conditions. This was based from an information leaked to Tech Crunch. Following Facebook’s…

..to new emerging mobility services and platforms The evolution of transportation, in similar fashion to humankind evolution, has gone through trials and tribulations as it has evolved through time. The world is ever-changing, at a faster pace than ever before and with increasing mobility demand and evolving mobility needs, transport providers of all kinds (private cars or other means of transport such as buses and train lines) have to satisfy demand for services that are increasingly convenient, fast and predictable. Changes in consumer habits in recent years demonstrate that some users are prepared to sacrifice individual forms of mobility, such as the private car, in favour of other modes of transport that offer these features. This has led to the successful introduction and rapid penetration of new mobility solutions. Meanwhile, traditional mobility ecosystems have diversified, employing a wider array of actors, and the emergence of new concepts, such as Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), have forced them to re-organize interactions…

It looks like 2018 was a ..somewhat exciting year for SEO. Let’s explore what’s on the horizon for SEOs in the coming year. With as many as 210 factors in Google’s algorithm, SEO is a complex science and the fact that it is a constantly changing environment makes it only more complex and difficult to grasp let alone execute. As search engines strive to improve the quality of search results, some ranking factors shift shapes, others totally disappear, and completely new ones pop up out of thin air. To help you stay ahead of the game in 2018, here’s a list of the most prominent trends that gained momentum this year with little tips on each. What trends do you foresee for 2019? Is there perhaps some trends you believe we missed out in 2018? Then feel free to comment below and tell us what you think. I’d love to…

I am often asked, how and why I decided to start a blog, what advice I would give to new bloggers and how on earth I managed to amass over 7000 subscribers in less than 4 years! So you’re thinking about starting a blog, fashion, beauty, tech or whatever that may be but you have absolutely no idea where to start, right? Guess what—neither did I. I was totally and utterly clueless. When I conceptualized and started this blog a few years ago, I had no idea how to start a blog or how to be a blogger. Heck, I could hardly spell HTML, let alone build a blog. Nah, this is not a “put you down” or “glory, glory me” post, its…good news: it’s easier than you think. I have learned a ton of lessons (and still am daily) during my 4 years of blogging and running my…

Digital marketing is an ever-evolving industry, with innovative studies, reports and “best practices” published seemingly every day. Some of the top bloggers, from Neil Patel to Jeff Bullas, offer cutting-edge digital marketing techniques and dedicate their lives to mastering this in-demand discipline. To truly understand and stay on top of the internet world, individuals would have to scour hundreds of blogs and attend top industry events around the world. This is both time-consuming and costly. Most businesses simply do not have the resources or capacity. Mastering the top digital marketing topics can drive revenue and improve brand awareness. The question becomes, is there a way to understand the most pertinent topics to drive business growth? Yes. The Detroit Regional Chamber’s digital marketing team has scoured the internet and listened intently to the top digital marketing conversations to bring together the four most important topics for 2018. The New Facebook Algorithm In January, Facebook changed…

The UK’s data watchdog has just issues the maximum possible fine against Facebook for its failure to protect personal information of their users in regards to the Cambridge Analytica scandal that broke out a few months ago, here in Cambridge. The fine is a mere £500,000, a small fee for a company that announced $13.2 billion in revenue in the last quarter alone but nonetheless, a step towards demonstrating that such behaviour in the future will not be tolerated. The figure is so low simply because it was calculated using the UK’s outdated 1998 Data Protection Act, and regulators say it would have been “significantly higher” under the EU’s new GDPR regulations, which came into force in the UK in May. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said Facebook had let a “serious breach” of the law take place and had given app developers access to people’s data “without clear consent” or…

Facebook Messenger’s “unsend” button may finally be a reality very soon as it seems to have already appeared in many messenger accounts of users worldwide. In April, news came out that Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook messages were deleted from recipients’ inboxes in what many saw as a violation of user trust and abuse of power since Facebook  Messenger doesn’t have an Unsend button for its users. This swiftly prompted Facebook, to release a statement announcing that it would actually be building an UNSEND functionality for all users in the near future and the time seems to be nearer than ever. Facebook users were already able to delete messages in a chat, but those deletions would only be for their end and would not delete the message from the recipient’s inbox. In addition, an Unsend button did already exist but this was under a timer expiration and for specific secret conversations only. Facebook-owned Instagram already has an “unsend”…

Mobile banking has grown rapidly the last decade and it is now almost impossible to find a bank that does not offer it. There are actually even banks that only exist online and hence downloading their app is the only way to interact with them for any number of reasons you may wish to. The shift to “mobile banking” is a global phenomenon which has empowered many African countries but also the everyday users in the western world. You see, one would think that mobile phones are not the safest of devices. You carry them with you, you can lose them at any time. However, with modern data encryption and security techniques, it seems that mobile banking is safe. What is mobile banking? Mobile banking is a service provided by a bank or other financial institution that allows its customers to conduct financial transactions remotely using a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Unlike the related internet banking it uses software, usually…
