I think that this is a really good thing. While everyone knows that even when you delete something, its out there somewhere. So having something that officially deletes a specific page that you created that you lost control of is an amazing thing.

Many companies use dark pattern techniques (see next curation) to make it difficult to find how to delete accounts.

 

JustDelete.me aims to be a directory of urls to enable you to easily delete an account from web services.

 

The links provided are colour-coded to indicate the difficulty level of account deletion:
- Green - Easy - Simple process
- Yellow - Medium - Some extra steps involved
- Red - Hard - Cannot be fully deleted without contacting customer services
- Black - Impossible - Cannot be deleted

 

Click the coloured header to go to the appropriate link.

 

As learners become aware that their eReputation could affect their employability, and more, they may well want to delete some accounts.

 

As they will discover, by visiting this website, that isn't always possible.

Sounds like a useful tool to share with students and staff who feel they have 'lost some control' in their online world, and need to 'refresh' their web footprint.

From #SXSW: Tumblr founder David Karp on encouraging creativity

From #SXSW: Tumblr founder David Karp on encouraging creativity | Technology | Scoop.it

4 ways Tumblr fosters creative communities 

SUMMARY: Tumblr founder David Karp says the social network remains a hub for creative communities because it focuses on four key goals. Speaking at South by Southwest Interactive, Karp cited the need for customizability and flexibility, and the value of setting a particular tone. "Karp's intense focus on the network's community means creatives will likely continue to find Tumblr's pages filled with the latest tools and new, interesting creations," SmartBrief's Stephen Yusko writes.

Being a Tumblr user I can agree with the fact that it is a cite where your page is all about you. The blog I have is a particular tone and its me. It gives me creative idea's and lets me share my thoughts in my own way to the world around me.

Tumblr allows you to freely express yourself in whatever ways you want. Because other people on that sight have the same opinions as you. No one will really judge you on your opinions anyway.

amber.hartgers's comment, September 30, 2013 10:29 AM
I think that this is agreeable. There are so many ways that you can be creative on the internet. But tumblr is a way that anybody could see your creativity.
Molly Langstraat's comment, October 2, 2013 4:08 PM
I agree with what this article said. Tumblr allows people to be creative and express themselves. It is one website where you don't have to worry about parents and people from school judging you.

Margaret Kooser's insight:
I think that it is common sense that social networks would build up business blogging. These sites are ways to get out your opinion which it seems is all anybody wants now a days, to be heard. Ads will pop up on almost every site. If the ad looks interesting people will look at what the industry is trying to sell.

7 Reasons to Register a Private Tumblr

7 Reasons to Register a Private Tumblr | Technology | Scoop.it

Tumblr's concept is a simple one: to make blogging easier. The massive community uses the site to share opinions, news, art and funny animal GIFs. The site expands the limits of traditional blogging by using a hashtag system similar to Twitter's, allowing users to see content from around the world.

Margaret Kooser's insight:

Tumblr is the easiest blog to maintain (in my opinion). Each blog is different in its own ways. You get too see the world through others eyes in the pictures, quotes, and videos they post everyday. I mostly enjoy the fact that your name or personal information is not needed anywhere for it, you could be a completely anonymous blogger with only your URL to give you away.

Morgan Kroes's comment, September 27, 2013 2:48 PM
I agree with Margaret. I have a tumblr as well, and it's very easy to use. Not only do you get to express yourself through it, but you get to see how other people do too. Everyone's blog reflects them, and their personality.

Margaret Kooser's insight:

While everything is always changing and improving a lot of things are also disappearing. The number of landlines are going down while the mobile devices are skyrocketing. Trends are changing, so are the things that people enjoy doing. So its a no brainer that somethings are bound to just go away.

Trends are weird and change everyday, seemingly pointless but a good way to trick your mind of still being a child.
Jerod Garland's comment, October 16, 2013 9:38 PM
It's amazing how much things have changed even in the last 5 years. I doubt many people will have a landline in 10 years.

Tumblr Beat Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn for SocNet Time Spent in December - Marketing Charts | Technology | Scoop.it

Tumblr may not be a popular player on the world stage, but data from a new comScore study shows that it’s heavily used by Americans, relative to other popular sites. Analyzing share of time spent on social networking sites in December 2012, comScore reveals that while Facebook dominated at 83% share, Tumblr occupied the second spot (5.7%), more than Pinterest (1.9%), Twitter (1.7%), and LinkedIn (1.4%) combined, and almost as much as the aggregate of all other social networks (6.1%).

This is one of those head-scratchers where you ask "where did that come from?" Clearly does not differentiate between B2B and B2X, but worthy of taking note.

I did not expect Tumblr would beat the other websites. I use Tumblr like, 80% of my day, but I didn't expect Tumblr to be that popular. I knew a lot of people used it, but I figured it was nowhere near as popular as Twitter or Facebook.

Molly Langstraat's comment, October 2, 2013 4:04 PM
This makes sense. A lot of teenagers have tumblr and they use it a lot. It is something that parents don't have and they can express themselves. It was interesting to see that it beat all the other websites, in my opinion i thought that Twitter would be on top.

The evolution of the GIF

The evolution of the GIF | Technology | Scoop.it
Editor's Note: While not directly correlated to knowledge sharing, GIFs do contribute to the "smart web" by creating a new way to communicate ideas, add dimensions to conversation, and provide irony and other editorial flavor.
Margaret Kooser's insight:
I think that the evolution of the GIF is a good thing. We are coming up with more and more ways to make presentations, ads, and just everyday things more interesting. They give pictures a new meaning and a new feeling to certain things that you can use them on. I think that as the technology grows, our understanding and our creativity will too.

iOS7 is a great improvement. Though I don't have an Iphone the friends of mine that do seem to be very pleased with there new update. Though the updates are looking more and more like Windows7 and Androids, I think it has a very creative and different quality that a lot of people do enjoy.

I upgraded to iOS 7 and I like it. It's a lot more modern looking. Everything is fancier, and even though they took a few things away, overall I like it. It originally slowed down my phone a lot, and drained a ton of battery. But I fixed it by switching some settings, and that was my only problem with it. Overall I like iOS 7.
