10 Inspiring WordPress Designs Worth Stealing

10 Inspiring WordPress Designs Worth Stealing | A bunch of stuff | Scoop.it

For those who haven’t received the memo yet, WordPress is still the de facto blogging platform despite the heavy influx of other incredible resourceful blogging platforms

 

WordPress can be over-caffeinated at times, and at other times it can be too subtle for the liking. But there is always enough room for us to spread our limbs and make changes on the fly, and that’s what the webmasters of the world have attempted and succeeded in. Owing to consistent self-reinventions, WordPress has managed to endure despite the huge herd of other content management systems strewing the market.

 

The Internet realm has witnessed a steady stream of bloggers in past few years. To some, their blog is nothing more than an outlet for their thoughts & opinions. And then there are people who represent a business or a brand and their blog forms an indispensable part of their online marketing strategy. For some, any watered down blogging platform would be good enough, however, if being known as a serious publisher is on your agenda, you might as well want to migrate to WordPress without wasting any time.

Facebook Is Going To Start Tracking You Even More Closely

Facebook Is Going To Start Tracking You Even More Closely | A bunch of stuff | Scoop.it

The next time you log in to Facebook, you might see a notification letting you know the company is “improving” advertising and giving users more control. To translate from Facebookese: The company will now be tracking your browsing and activity on third-party sites and applications to serve you up even more personalized ads. 


Facebook currently displays ads it thinks you’ll be more likely to engage with based on your Page likes and other personal information you share with Facebook. But soon in the U.S., Facebook will use data from websites you visit and applications you use to serve you up ads it thinks are relevant based on what you do off of Facebook.


So if you’ve been shopping online for a crib, Facebook will likely think you’re expecting a baby, and will show you Facebook ads for things like toys, clothes, and other items a new parent might need.
