Save Your Friends: How To Use Social Media To Raise Awareness Of Scams & Frauds

Scams. Frauds. Social media. All three of these tend to go together, but only one stands well in a positive manner on its own. It’s just too bad that the other two affect it so often. It’s a fact that there are bad people in the world, and they thrive on selfish acts which help them but hurt others. It could be stopped if more people were aware of them, but in this fast-paced society influenced by social media, people ignorantly cry wolf time and time again.

Viber: Call & Text Other Users For Free [iPhone]

Free calling and texting for your iPhone. Yep. It’s real. With Viber, that’s exactly what you get since it works through whatever WiFi connection you happen to be using. This gives you one more reason to mooch off the neighbors! Despite a few reasonable hoops to jump through, the app is quite functional. It says it offers free calling and free texting, and it does. Nothing can beat that. As far as I can tell, Viber is a wonderful app with a variety of practical uses.

Whatever Happened To…? Following Up On Major Websites From The Dotcom Boom

Many of you remember the Dotcom Boom that happened in the late nineties. All it took to make your stock go up was a “.com” or an “e-” attached to your company’s name. Of course, all good things come to an end, and the bubble burst in the year 2000. With that said, there were several popular sites around this era that just seemed to vanish. What happened to them? We have 5 of the top websites that came into existence because of the boom.

Waze: A Social GPS For Your Daily Commute [iOS]

Out of all the navigation apps that are currently on the market, Waze may very well have the best concept. The only catch is that it doesn’t have a “big name” backing it (like Google or Apple Maps). Regardless, it’s on our list of Best Apps For The iPhone, and there’s a reason for that. The app blends elements from both crowdsourcing and mapping to create something truly useful.
