How To Make A Shared Photo Album On Facebook [Weekly Facebook Tips]

After every great party these days there is an influx of photos on Facebook. Until recently, every Facebook user who turned up to the event with a camera would upload their photos to Facebook into an album: maybe specifically for this event, maybe an album for the month or maybe just their basic iOS photo album. What it meant was that there was no one album for the event – all the photos were disjointed and kept all over the place. Until now.

An Inspirational Comic Strip For All Struggling Freelancers

Striving freelancers, listen to me. Keep going. Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you’re worth less than your office-constrained counterparts. Don’t sell yourself short. In 1990, Bill Watterson, creator of the beloved comic ‘Calvin & Hobbes’, took the podium and delivered an inspirational commencement speech to the graduates of Kenyon College. He shared unforgettable moments from his personal life and the struggles he faced with what he referred to as a real job — a job that’s creatively and intellectually unfulfilling.
