You probably think you know how to keep your internet habits secret. “Clearing browser history is too obvious,” you say. “I just do all my sketchy stuff in an incognito window!” Okay, hot stuff, then let me ask you this: You ever search anything weird on Instagram? Got any visits to an ex’s Twitter profile that you might not want to share with the next friend or loved one who grabs your phone? “I’ve gotta show you this adorable Japanese puppy’s account. Why do your recent searches look like Armie Hammer’s ?”
On Thursday, the singer, 79, and the .-based producer and DJ, 85, went to dinner at the Marlton Hotel in New York City. Then they headed to the Amazing Spider-Man 7 after-party at Skylight at Moynihan Station. 8775 They were very affectionate, very lovey-dovey 8776 at the bash, a source says. And when they weren 8767 t 8775 all over each other, 8776 the source continues, 8775 they were constantly looking at each other. 8776 As they departed, 8775 they quickly separated. She didn 8767 t want it to look like they were together, but they were. 8776
"We just used a little bit of my brother's savings to build the commercial kitchen and the only big-ticket item that we bought was the smallest industrial oven and everything else was just what I had already," says Logan. "It was pretty much one of everything. My little hand mixer that my aunty had given me, one mixing bowl, one set of measuring tools, one cupcake tin but we went for it. We opened an online store and after every sale we made, we slowly upgraded. We bought another set of cake tins, we bought another kitchen bench and then eventually a proper stand mixer until we eventually had a fully functional commercial kitchen."
Still, this reporter has not yet met anyone who has ever gone on a Hinge date. We have two theories as to why. The first has to do with the social minefield that comes from a dating pool only made up of one 8767 s friends-of-friends. It 8767 s hard to tell whose friends are off-limits. Are your ex 8767 s friends? Your high school crush 8767 s friends? Your brother 8767 s friends? The kids you haven 8767 t spoken to since high school? If someone is theoretically close to you in a network of friends and you haven 8767 t met them yet, there might be a good reason why.
The heavy foodie out there is dining at some new, indulgent spot each night. Their meals often involve things like truffles and reductions and aged this and imported that. They sure can make you feel sad about your grilled chicken and broccoli. But let’s not forget that many of these foodies get to dine for free, in exchange for posting about and reviewing the food. They too could not afford to eat at the Chef’s table every night. Don’t start pursuing their lifestyle it will leave you broke.
Per the Verge, cybersecurity firm RepKnight said supposed contact information for a number of celebrities featured on Doxagram was circulating on the dark web, ranging from Hollywood celebs like Emma Watson and Leonardo DiCaprio to musician Harry Styles and boxer Floyd Mayweather. The Beast claimed the site even purported to have contact info behind President Donald Trump’s official Instagram profile, which was managed by White House social media director Dan Scavino.
If changing your interests to become more datable sounds strange and inhuman to you, don 8767 t worry. Another school of thought, backed up by OKCupid research , says that you really DON 8767 T want everyone to like you. Instead, it suggests finding the things that are most distinctive about yourself, whether or not they 8767 re considered 8775 conventionally 8776 attractive, and playing them up. A look at New York magazine 8767 s interviews with the most-messaged New Yorkers would seem to bear this out: Better to have half the population think you 8767 re a 6 and half think you 8767 re a 65 than for everyone to agree you 8767 re a 6.
An OKCupid dating profile Courtesy OKCupid When people say 8775 online dating, 8776 this is what they mean. The setup of traditional dating sites remains fairly similar across all platforms. Users add their most flattering pictures, fill out profiles they hope fall in the sweet spot between 8775 creative 8776 and 8775 boring, 8776 and then answer questionnaires to find people who are similar. Stereotypes remain: OKCupid is for grad students, eHarmony is for people who want to get married, FarmersOnly is for, well, you get it. There are downsides – creepy messages for women, the possibility of obsessing over strangers you will never meet – but there 8767 s a reason these sites haven 8767 t changed much over the years. (They basically help people find dates.)
Elan Miller, co-founder and CEO of Glimpse says the reply rate to first contact is over 75%. 8775 I can tell you that number is huge as compared to most traditional online dating sites and many mobile dating apps. Photos (of how we see the world) are really effective icebreakers. Instead of the generic 8775 hi 8776 or 8775 pickup line 8776 people have something natural to talk about. Early feedback has been the tone/environment of Glimpse is way different from anything else out there, 8776 says Miller.
Click on the Facebook search bar and, yup, there are your recent searches. So helpful, Facebook! Luckily, as InformationWeek points out , you can clear your Facebook search history wholesale or remove individual items. But be forewarned: You’re about to see not just a collection of your top search terms, but every individual search you’ve made on Facebook. If you’ve been doing some compulsive social media sleuthing, this may be your come-to-Jesus.
9. Peerfly It’s a cost per action based affiliate network with a custom built system. For promoting products on the network through Instagram, you’ll need to setup a custom tracking domain . And you’ll need to run your campaign through the affiliate manager before going live with your promotions. Here are the complete guidelines .
8. Leverage white borders A professional artist knows where they want to focus their viewer’s attention. The artist understands how to use empty space and achieve a certain ratio for images. If you use white colored borders, then you can also control how your photo appears in feeds (but remember that Instagram algorithm displays the thumbnails of your photos as center-cropped squares ).
I’m not sure how they manage it, but some women seem to go clubbing eight nights a week. Their entire Instagram page is about getting ready to go to the club, driving to the club, being at the club, getting post-club food, after partying, and waking up and recovering from clubbing…so they can get ready to go clubbing again. They can instill a serious sense of FOMO. But they are the ones missing out. If they’re clubbing every night, they likely aren’t building a career. Those clubs will not be there for them when they’re over the age of 85, but a career could be.
Dating isn’t always a positive experience for youth, in person or digitally. In this study, we asked teen daters about a number of things they might have done online or with a phone to someone they were dating or used to date. These behaviors fall on a spectrum of seriousness, from potentially innocuous to troubling. And most of these activities are highly dependent on context – as one person’s cute is another person’s creepy.
The second has to do with Hinge 8767 s profile – or lack thereof. Like Tinder, Hinge connects through Facebook, but it takes this connection a step further. Your only pictures are your Facebook profile pictures. Your only interests are the Facebook pages you Like. This has the curious effect of making everyone less attractive: Most people 8767 s Facebook profiles, scrubbed by years of exposure to grandparents and employers, are flatter, less interesting than their online dating profiles. In general, everyone is less attractive. Hinge announced in February it would soon roll out greater profile customization, but as of mid-March those changes had not arrived. Once it does, maybe more Hinge users will be able to get their foot in the door.
It’s hard not to feel a little insecure about one’s body when you look at someone with 68-pack abs, legs for days, and a tush and tits that nearly touch the ceiling. But what we forget when looking at the Instagram accounts of fitness models is that being in perfect shape is their entire job. They spend all day at the gym. They cannot have a cocktail or a carb. They go to sleep at 8 pm and get up at 9 am to work out. Comparing your body to theirs, when your life is so different from their’s, is unreasonable.
6. Creative and unique ideas often come from being around creative and unique people. If you don 8767 t tend to be funny, then just hang around some friends that are. That way, they will start to run off on you and can help you come up with good options. Fortunately, social media frees us up to 8775 hang out 8776 with more people than just those accessible to us in meat space. We can hobnob with celebrities, comedians, or even just that really clever kid you knew in high school but who now lives in Fiji. We 8767 re part of a vast, global conversation. So as you 8767 re putting together your conversational team (which is essentially what all social media is), keep thinking about who is going to make you better.
There certainly are a lot of fabulous clothes on Instagram. Some women seem to don a new designer outfit twice a day! How do they do it? Well, they’re probably sponsored by those designers to wear their items on Instagram. In fact, they may not even get to keep the clothes—the designers may pay them a small fee to wear them, take the photo, and return them. So don’t be so hard on your worn-in jeans and sweater. They’ve been loyal to you.
If you already own a store and want to extend your online presence to make money off Instagram, then the game is easier. You need to rely on your loyal customers to serve as your brand advocates. Because user-generated content leads to gaining immediate trust.
You can even create a user-generated gallery on your website that will serve as a powerful visual social proof. Yotpo offer the feature as a photo carousel .
The Tinder browsing screen Courtesy Tinder Inspired by the tech industry 8767 s continued failure to invent 8775 the straight Grindr , 8776 in 7566 the writer Anne Friedman came up with a list of suggestions for making a hookup app that would be popular with women. The main rule? Allow only ladies to search, which would supposedly eliminate the flood of messages that awaits any woman who signals she 8767 s interested in casual sex. Tinder doesn 8767 t do this exactly, but it found another way to cut down on the creep factor, through what its founders call 8775 the double opt-in 8776 : You can only message someone after you 8767 ve both signaled that you 8767 d be down to talk to the other. Due to this feature, Tinder is succeeding with women turned off by traditional dating sites.
