Fiverr GuyToilet Message; Gay Kiss in "Shelter"; Strongest Facebook Communities

Fiverr Guy Toilet Message

For those who don’t know, Fiverr.com is a web site where people will do almost anything for five dollars. There’s a “Fun/Bizarre” category where people will do anything from eating fruit in weird ways to rolling around in the mud in their underwear…all for five dollars. In this case, with this link, a very nice-looking young man will do this:

I will say or write your message exiting the toilet. I can also be with my pants/t-shirt on/off. I will send you a video and a few photos.

It’s Friday. It’s been a long week.
 
Gay Kiss in Shelter

This is going to sound really bad, but I’ve never actually seen the LGBT movie Shelter. This may be because it was released in 2007 and that was when Tony was going through health issues and movies were not at the top of my priority list. However, when I ran across this on youtube last night I’m going to make a point of seeing it now.

Strongest Facebook Communities

I’m fascinated with Infographics for some reason I find hard to explain. This one talks about the strongest communities on facebook, and I think it might surprise some people. I’m not totally blown away by it because I’ve actually made purchases in this area thanks for facebook. I also “like” several of these groups.

The data also showed that fans of fashion, automobiles, and ecommerce are the most bonded communities based on shares, likes, and comments. Such groups generally have formed somewhat ardent communities — think Chevrolet Camaro groups, or those that collect shoes by designer Jimmy Choo. That’s likely one reason why the analysts found the level of engagement unsurprising.

Readers: When do you socialize with other fans of brands you enjoy?

The article also goes on to show how this holds up according to facebook “Shares,” “Likes,” and “Comments.”

This is the definition of Infographics for those who might be interested.

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly.[1][2] They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends.[3][4] The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, or information architecture.[2]


Fifty Shades; Abandoned Books; Facebook Infographics

Fifty Shades; Abandoned Books; Facebook Infographics

Galleycat published an article titled, The Most Abandoned Book List. Of course the infographic was created by goodreads.com, which makes me wonder how accurate it is and how they chose the data, but I thought it was interesting to see that Fifty Shades of Grey and The Causal Vacancy were up there in the top two.

Goodreads has created a great infographic exploring the books most often abandoned by readers on the social network. The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling topped that list, followed by Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.

I don’t think it was a “great” infographic. I think it was boring and they could have just printed a list to make it easier on readers.

Frankly, I didn’t finish reading the goodreads infographic for lack of time. But I actually finished both Fifty Shades and Casual Vacancy, and I like them both, too. For that matter, John Irving’s, In One Person, wasn’t a simple book to finish. But I found that when I reached the halfway point of the book it started moving faster. The same went for Fifty Shades and Casual Vacancy. I think I may have even mentioned that in at least one of my reviews for those books.

Speaking of infographics, there’s also a link in this article to a page that explains facebook’s inforgraphics so that you can pick and choose who you want to follow on facebook and who you want to keep separate in case you’re worried about insulting them with religion or politics, or whatever.

Awkward Facebook situations are now easier to avoid with the wide release of Facebook’s new search bar, Graph Search. By using Graph Search to sort your friends by their stance on divisive topics, like religion or politics, you can immediately figure out which friends to unfriend, hide in your feed, or at least move to a separate list so you don’t offend them with the truth.

I wonder what would happen if I typed in “Which one of my author friends is totally full of crap?” The key word being totally. We’re all full of a little crap at times. It’s just that some are more crap-filled than others (smile).

But on a serious note, you really do have to have a great deal of time to suss out everyone on facebook in your friend list, not to mention patience. I’d rather read a few offensive updates about politics and religion. Do we really take it all that seriously anyway?
