Sanctri helps you commemorate the departed on Facebook

From socialmediaslant.com

The other day, a friend and I were wondering what happens to a user's social media profiles once he or she passes away. I did some research and discovered that Facebook allows people to submit memo...
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

Grieving the loss of a friend is never easy. I personally don't like posting on their Facebook profile, as I am not sure how the family could react (especially if they don't know me). 

Luckily, there is an app that allows you to create memorialized pages for departed friends and celebrate their lives with the world: Sanctri.

Facebook Graph Search Privacy: What to Know & How to Protect Yourself

From www.wordstream.com

What is Facebook Graph Search? How can you retain your privacy and remain hidden from Facebook's new nosy feature? Read the article to find out!
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

When Graph Search was officially introduced earlier this year, many people started worrying about the negative impacts the new functionality could have.

 

Since then, Facebook has worked around its internal search engine to make more and more things discoverable, including public posts. The company recently got rid of the “Who can look up your Timeline by name?” setting and changed the default sharing setting for new accounts opened by teenagers.

 

Those recent decisions continue raising questions as to how safe sharing content on the giant social network truly is. The answer is: Nothing is safe on the Internet, unless you exercise caution. First, start with your privacy settings.

 

Megan Marrs has written an excellent article on the topic. She goes through the major areas to review to ensure that you can continue enjoying networking on Facebook.

Why Facebook hashtags were doomed to #fail - Inside Facebook

From www.insidefacebook.com

We’re nearly four months into Facebook’s reluctant acceptance of hashtags and, to this point; it’s really been much ado about nothing.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

When Facebook announced that users could start using hashtags, I decided to give the feature a try. After all, they had always been successful on Twitter and Google+.

 

As it turns out, I and many other entrepreneurs and businesses quickly discovered that they actually limit the reach of posts. Why is that? Because, according to David Carrillo, people do not use Facebook to interact with strangers and discover new trends.

MediaPost Publications Social Spam Rose 355% In The First Half Of 2013 09/27/2013

Social Spam Rose 355% In The First Half Of 2013 - 09/27/2013
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

"The report calls out Facebook's Graph Search as one of the newest spam tools for social because it allows users to precisely query a specific target audience. Spammers set parameters such as age, location, likes, interests and brands followed. Aside from being seen by the indented person and friends, all connected friends of friends also see the message. If the recipient's content is public, social spam reaches an even wider audience. Some 40% of social media accounts have been used to cast a wide net."
