A Journey to owning an Online Business.
Hey, If you're reading right now, it's because of 1 out of the 3 options below; you either followed me here all the way from decreativeedge where I educate people on how to launch their very own 5,6 or even 7 figure online business, give tips to agency owners on how to optimize their businesses and generate more sales.
Talk on being a "YOUTUBER"
Firstly, Let us talk what is "YouTube"? YouTube is an American forum for online video sharing and social media. Launched in February 14, 2005, by Steve Chen, Chad Hurley, and Jawed Karim. It is the second most visited website, just after Google itself. YouTube has over one billion users watching videos for over a billion hours each day. As of May 2019, videos have been uploaded at a rate of more than 500 hours of content per minute.
The Progression Of Social Media
Social media without a doubt has changed the way we as humans think, feel and act. It has directed the world onto a completely different path than one would ever have even imagined achieving. Not only has it created a direct link between cities, countries and continents but has allowed for a hands-free, human-free world to exist right beneath us. Whether we realise it or not we have all fallen into this new day and age, living in a technologically driven world, where humans have more power behind a screen than they do away from it.
TikTok has dominated the app scene for years now, but creators could still leave if this doesn't change.
TikTok has dominated the app scene for a few years now and it continues to grow stronger with a growing user base as well as new creators blowing up and becoming overnight sensations. People are posting multiple times a day to continue to utilize the algorithm to have this same type of success and it really isn't surprising. Becoming a TikTok content creator can change your life in every aspect.
Social Media Is Like A Fiction Story
I spent the last few years doing an English degree which, inevitably, meant I spent the last few years doing a lot of reading and collecting a lot of stories. And in all the stories I’ve read, I’ve come to realize the ones I’m most passionate about are the ones that resist neat narratives.
Almost everyone has a social media page in modern societies. And most people with those social media pages stay active, posting special moments from their lives or simply sharing everyday thoughts that pass through their mind. But what if an active, social media user stops posting? Not only just stops posting, but also deletes their account entirely? While some may choose to do that for the sake of their sanity (no judgement there), there's a more sinister reason that can explain why someone on social media, even with thousands or millions of followers, will suddenly disappear from online society.
It's Not Only Social Networks - The Entire Internet is Gamified to Meaninglessness
After I wrote about how engagement algorithms are killing meaningful content in social networks, I started noticing some things on the Internet that I did not pay attention to before :
Facebook 2.0: Meta wants to turn our physical movements into money
When Facebook bought Oculus and its much-hyped Rift VR goggles for $2 billion in 2014, it wasn't entirely clear what the social media giant was planning with this move into virtual reality. But anyone familiar with Facebook's myriad scandals and insatiable hunger for personal data had some premonition.
The Metaverse: Virtual Reality and the Convergence of Physical and Digital Space.
Facebook has announced that its platforms will be rebranded and incorporated under a single new corporate name: Meta. You may be wondering what Mark Zuckerberg meant by "Metaverse" in his video about this recent change. I'll try to clarify it in this article from my perspective.
This article was written by John Mulnix and originally published in The Particle on 6/23/2020. What is digital amnesia? It’s also known as digital obsolescence, but basically, it happens when a file, website, or piece of computer hardware can no longer be read or function, thereby depriving us of the ability to read the contents stored in that medium.
Polywork: a new professional and social network for polyworkers
A new space of influencers, writers, investors, developers, designers, content creators, lifestyle entrepreneurs, hustlers, models, musicians and any kind of polyworker
Is A.I. Ruining Social Media for Artists?
If you've browsed fanart on Instagram or other social media platforms, it's almost impossible that you haven't come across Artbreeder images. These perfectly crafted, photo-realistic portraits are often made to resemble famous characters from animated films and television programs. Portraits like these also often resemble real artwork, made by real people, but they are not. If you see an image with the caption "made using Artbreeder" then you should know that the image you're seeing was generated by a complex A.I. program designed to produce artificial artwork. Artbreeder is a GAN Breeding program that allows any user to create unique pieces of art by having the A.I's system combine other images already in its database. These pieces of art are quite literally bred, with the traits and qualities of other images being endlessly recombined and changed to create them.
