Want to See ALL of Your Facebook Newsfeed?

technologyalert.jpg

Earlier today I stumbled across a conversation on Facebook where one person was complaining that they could not see all of their friends posts on Facebook again and that they are continuously having to go to settings to tell Facebook to show ALL of their friends, not the top posts. Well, low and behold then someone came along and shared a link that we can all click on and see every post that your friends posted in a timely manner.

Want the link? Click here while logged in to Facebook.

You can thank me later, (In my Drake voice).

In 2016, the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Foundation commissioned Syl Wilson Marketing to design their Gala program, brochure, social media campaigns and email campaigns. Not only did we design these elements, but we also participated in the Gala and it was OUTSTANDING. The sponsors of the event gave incredible amounts and the night was very special for the children of the Greater East St. Louis area.

F-3 Solutions

f3websitePolitical Strategists, Chad Proudlock and Matthew Ward reached out to the team at Syl Wilson Marketing to design a website that would display their creative work online, a logo for their new business (F-3 Solutions) and social media pages. This site is responsive and has features built in that allow for motion using video. The homepage has a video affect that is viewable on computers. Chad and Matt needed their website in a tight timeframe and Syl Wilson Marketing delivered with quick turnaround and incredible results. The logo was requested to resemble one of the scientific elements without being obvious. The social media needed to have maximum results in a short time frame due to press releases being pushed out fast. Additionally, Syl Wilson designed a website for a SuperPac that they requested called Stronger Together NYC. Both projects were delivered in short time frame with excellent designs.

Be Careful What You Post…The Internet Is Forever

I have said it time and time again…Be careful and mindful of what you are posting online as it will come back to bite you in the you know what! I have been hearing several horror stories lately of youngsters who have posted less than flattering photos of themselves or pictures of themselves with alcohol while underage and losing scholarships to college. I shake my head at the carelessness that is given when people click the “publish” or “update” button.

I was caused to pause today when someone shared a story that is not new news, but just reminds me that I need to continually encourage people young and mature that the internet is like a diary with all of your secrets and if it falls into the hands of the wrong person…it can be spread within a few seconds just from one person clicking the “share” button. The latest story I heard about was about a gal named “Vodka Samm” who made the unfortunate mistake of living recklessly in college by Continue reading

Missing Some of Your Facebook Likes? Don’t Worry It’s All For The Good!

A lot of folks have been emailing and asking me about their Facebook business pages losing likes. Found this article today from Web Pro News and thought I would share it. Take a read and rest assured, this is all for the better.

Facebook is cracking down on something they deem harmful to the integrity of their site, and your fans may be in danger.

You may have experienced a small dip in the total likes on your Facebook page in the last couple of days and yes, it does mean that people are fleeing your page. Why have you suddenly become so unpopular? Continue reading

So about those of you who deleted your facebook page…Facebook is still following you.

I just read a mildly disturbing article from   with CNET about Facebook. Once again, they are tracking us based on “likes” on other websites even when we have not logged into our Facebook accounts in ages. How? Well a little thing called script and cookies.

Should you be concerned? Well, in the grand scheme of things I say “yes and no,” because what are you the average reader doing on the internet that you should not be doing? If they are selling this information to the government as so many think, who really cares? Unless you’re planning something you shouldn’t be.

On the other hand, if they are selling the data to insurance companies, credit card agencies, or the like….well…that just ain’t right. Want to read the article for yourself? Keep reading.

Your location can be pinpointed by what photo you post on the internet

Did that title scare you? I know when I first found out this I was very worried. I mean…who doesn’t post photo’s online to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and any other social media outlet? I know I do. I love sharing my day with friends. Well I got an email last week that had this little newsclip in it, watch it by clicking here..In the clip they say uploading photo’s to the internet can be a ROADMAP to your location. My first thought was this is a hoax…So I investigated further by contacting someone who I deem as the expert in everything technical…My sister! Guess what she had to say? Continue reading

Morning Cup of…Facebook?

I got to wondering today. “What’s the first thing normal people do in the morning?” I mean..for me, it’s wake up, log into Facebook and see if I have any messages, then see what everyone else is chatting about (there could be some happening news ya know), then check to see if my fan page has any questions or leads. After that I hit up Twitter…This process lasts for about the first half hour of my morning before I ever leave the house. So I started to wonder…Am I the Continue reading

Facebook Face Recognition? What’ll they think of next? Yep…It’s coming!

So you may have noticed in your privacy setting a little section that is blurred out and says, “Suggest photo’s of me to friends,” and then it either has edit rights or it says “This is not yet available to you,” like mine does. Well, no worries, it’s rolling out to all Facebook users over the next few weeks. But your probably wondering “WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME???”

I’ll tell ya!

Facebook has installed face recognition software into its system so that when you upload photo’s of you, your friends, and family, they can now suggest “tags” so that you don’t have to go through the process of tagging people. I suppose for some this can be very handy, I know with a lot of “promotors,” when they have to TAG a photo of an event, this would be nice because now Facebook will remember (in theory) the last event photo and all who were TAGGED would be automatically suggested for the next event.  Or if you have an upload of a large party and you have several friends who you have tagged previously, Facebook will suggest their names.

However, if you have a very “PRIVATE” page similar to mine, you may want to disable this function. You already know Facebook thought this through and has put in the ability to “LOCK OUT” the face recognizer from your Facebook buddies. Because really….some of us don’t want our pals randomly tagging us in their photo’s.  I know I get tired of going through and “Untagging.” hahaha! Just kidding! Stay tuned for more updates on this feature!

Want to get rid of the likes on your Facebook page? Easy!

I hear ya on that!! I had to search high and low for a minute but I found it. So what do you do when you accidentally like one too many pages on Facebook or you click one of those stupid pictures that you just HAD to click on and then all of the sudden you found out from your friends that you’ve liked a zillion pages…well to “unlike” a page or pages, here are the instructions:

Step 1.

Log in your account

Step 2.

On the top right click your profile tab, (see arrow in image below) then below your profile photo, click the info tab.

Example:

Next, you’ll want to scroll almost all the way down until you get to a section called “Activities and Interests.” You should be able to click the little pencil next to this section on the right hand side which will allow you to edit all the “likes” that you’ve either purposely or accidentally “Liked” on Facebook.

Example 2

This next page is a little tricky only because you might think it didn’t work. If you have a lot of likes like me you’ll need to click on the “show other pages” link and then you’ll get your likes. See below:

And FINALLY you can get to the COVETED Facebook “Like” pages!!! Now you can remove the ones you don’t want! Here is the screen shot of what it will look like. Have fun and hopefully Facebook will stop changing things on us so we can know where the heck things are!

If you want to just stop people from knowing “What you like,” but you still want to keep your “Likes” in your profile for you to view and no one else to see, then the instructions are within your privacy settings. To do this go to Privacy, then at the top left of the page next to connecting on FB click view settings, under “See my likes, activities and other connections” change that to “only me.”
