I've written loads of articles about how Facebook is losing millions of users in the US and UK. Last year this decline in Facebook users was seen to hit Ireland. One recent and slightly alarmist report by Princeton University suggested that Facebook could lose up to 80% of it's users by 2017.
Moving a Wordpress site is more complicated then it should be, just look at the tutorial on the Wordpress support site.
The reason it is so complicated is that Wordpress, for some reason, keeps some domain records in the Database itself, so in order to move domain successfully, not only do you need to export your Database, you then need to do a text find and replace on the Database in order to catch all the mentions of the old domain name.
The Irish Times last week reported a forecast produced by Princeton University which claims that the social media giant Facebook will be largely abandoned by 2017 . The article says that:
The social network, which celebrates its 10th birthday last February, has survived longer than rivals such as Myspace and Bebo, but the Princeton forecast says it will lose 80 per cent of its peak user base within the next three years.
We'd like to extend our warmest congratulations to everyone at Teamwork Project Management on their recent purchase of the domain name www.teamwork.com, reports say it was for a pretty cool price of €4-500,000!
The move allows Teamwork to move their Teamwork Project Management App from TeamworkPM.net to the much more user friendly home domain over at teamwork.com.
I'd just like to share this new (new to me anyway) up and coming App called Flipboard.
Flip-board is a social-news-reading-app, which allows you to build a “magazine” of online content and then share this magazine with people. It is shared in a format as to be easy to read on any devise (desktop-tablet-mobile) and it is easy to share the content using the main social media channels: Facebook or Twitter.
It is only a couple of years old and it’s user ship reached 56 million users last year.
Wearable Tech seems to be all the rage at the moment. From clever little app based pedometers which integrate with smart phone and/or web apps to tell you how many steps you have taken each week vs how many you should take. To the über geeky, and kind of impractical in my opinion, Google Glass. There seems to be more and more wearable gadets being released all the time.
