Features of Mastadon:

  • Write posts, upload images, change privacy settings, and add content warnings with the icons.
  • Use the search bar to find people and look at hashtags, such as #illustration and #introductions.
  • Open the timelines find new people. The public one shows posts from everyone on mastodon.social. The federated timeline shows public posts from everyone who people on mastodon.social follow.

Social Bookmark In My Pocket

16 Aug

How do you save your favorite articles and sites? I’ve used Delicious for years  but recently the service is unreliable and seems to be constantly down. I started using Pocket after trying many social bookmarking tools. It’s an app, website and browser extension that helps people save interesting articles, videos and more from the web for later enjoyment. The site says, “Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch, during commutes or travel — even offline.”

Pocket is integrated into more than 1500 apps including Flipboard, Twitter and Zite. It is also available on iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Kindle Fire, Kobo, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Windows.

Twitter just launched “moments” – a news service that congregates tweets about the latest events. Read tweets from today, world news, sports, entertainment or funny moments. Of course, you can always click on trending hashtags to find out the most popular topics Twitter users are talking about too. Twitter continues to be my favorite source of news and this feature made it much better.

What Is A Meme? The Internet Meme Database

1 Nov

Leading Hands Through Technology has talked about memes before and wrote up the definition of a meme a couple of years ago. It generally mimics a latest trend graphically and then this allows for it to be spread vitally. However recently I stumbled upon a website that archives and keeps track of memes – the Meme Internet Database aka Know Your Meme.

According to the website, “Know Your Meme was founded in 2008 to research and document Internet memes and viral phenomena. Its research is handled by an independent professional editorial and research staff and community members.”

If you are looking up a new meme or just want to look up an old one, you should start here.
