I recently upgraded from a Motorola Droid X to a Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon Wireless. Based on your phone, the first thing I would recommend is to get off T-mobile. They spend the least amount of money, time and effort to upgrade their network which is why the internet (i.e. facebook) is so slow.



Don’t worry that your phone is “almost” like an iPhone. Android is better, which is why Apple is always copying innovations invented by Google! It’s also the reason why iPhone users are switching because of Apple’s refusal to allow superior apps like “Google Maps” and “Gmail” to be the default apps on an iPhone.

Both phones have quite advanced and intuitive Facebook apps. Anyone have a Windows phone or Blackberry with the Facebook app?

Facebook makes it notoriously hard to delete your account. In fact, I think you can easily "deactivate" it, but "deleting" takes much more effort. In either case, you're also guilted into coming back via emails that point out all the friends and news you'll miss. Log in again at any time within two weeks and your account is back from the dead.

I get why many people don't understand Instagram's appeal. If you are primarily a FB user, IG doesn't add much to the experience except those trippy filters that make your food look gross but your sunsets look great.

If Twitter's constantly-updating stream of personal updates never grabbed you, you certainly wouldn't be grabbed by Instagram either, at least as it was in its earlier incarnation. But I got sucked in because my Instagram "friends" were mostly my Twitter friends, and scrolling through a day's worth of my Instagram stream was a chance to see a slideshow of what my friends had seen and done that day. As @emilychang said just over two years ago, it was basically visual Twitter.

THAT was its appeal, I think, for many of us.

I get that most of you don't really care what your friends and acquaintances had for dinner or what their office desks looked like at work today or what the skyline view was from their spot in afternoon traffic. I think that was made clear in our initial discussion of Twitter six years ago. But I'm still a fan, all these years later. What Instagram did (and other photo-sharing apps did not) was make it really, really easy to share photos, to leave comments on photos, and to "like" photos in the quick-and-sometimes-crude way that Twitter allowed us to share whatever was on our minds. For many, IG became the social media platform of choice, a place where friendships were made and conversations held away from Twitter, FB, and other platforms. It was always more supplementary to me--I don't think I ever posted a photo on IG that wasn't meant primarily to be shared with Twitter--but "visual Twitter" seemed to be enough for a lot of users. The connectivity with others made rabid fans of many of its users.

My fondness for the app would never go that far, but I get it.

The data stored on those servers is like a pillow full of feathers.

Once that data is strewn about no amount of work will unscramble that egg.

WOW!! , Thanks for replying back & thank you for that info :-) .

Actually, hubby & I has been with T-Mobile for 15 years altogether, me for 10. I transferred over from AT&T to T-Mobile 10 years ago, & hubby & I just transferred to a 2 year contract from a 6 month prepaid plan.

I will try to remember this in 2 years time, & get that Android phone & possibly move to Verizon. hmmm..

I know you said I should move away from T-Mobile, but, seeing as we are in T-Mobile already. would T-Mobile have something equivalent to that phone? I wonder?

p.s. how much do you like your new phone? & are all companies the same? unlimited talk,text,data? How much are you paying a month?

we were paying $200 before we moved to a prepaid, then found a cheaper contracted plan for a 4G phone & 2G worth of Data. IF the 2G doesn't seem to work for us, then we could always move up to 3 or a 4G worth of Data (at any time). p.s. That photo is a really nice phone :-)

Maybe. Maybe not. In any case, those changes in its final form, are about to take effect!

Why you should make Instagram private before Saturday

Quote:
Instagram's updated terms of service and privacy policy go into effect this Saturday, Jan. 19. At least for now, the new policies will mean little change for users. But when changes come, as they likely will, Instagrammers won't have much time to change their privacy settings. And that's a good reason to consider making your account private in the calm before another storm.

The new server farms are really quite fascinating to see.

Each shows signs of individualism.


The architecture of such installations will show brush strokes

of the original architects.

Set ground rules. One of my rules is no Facebook games.

It's not great -- plus, the NSA knows who 99% of my friends are, but I get to keep in touch with my friends all over the world in a very simple way.

I'm having a horrible deja vu about a red dot / chiclet. Things like this start out with good intentions and end up being abused big time. Would likely lead to my exit from Facebook.

Perhaps it is only because I cannot adequately navigate, or that I don;t undersatand the system, ut post something, and it's there forever. Typos and all.

I prefer email. Private as you want, with return receipt as well.

DOWN with FACEBOOK!
As my job involves checking hundreds of emails each day, I'm about as done as it can be.

There are more modern ways to communicate between people and email technology simply took traditional snail mail into the paperless direction.

FB was a giant leap from Myspace, and has grown to be a very profitable business. However like most technologies, the security of its content can be improved upon greatly.

I only got into it a few months ago and the pages I frequent keep it fun and interesting as well as profitable, plus it's helped generate international interest in things I promote, so I'm happy with it. And for my many (real) friends that frequent fb it's easy to communicate spur of the moment without calling. Works for me, and it's free.
