LocalLink allows them to search for groups in their city and/or locality, join them, and communicate with them with ease. Made with AppInventor (and Fusion Tables at core), LocalLink is partially community - driven, and has several safety … See more
There you have it. Four great—if not better—alternatives to Instagram. I admit, I don't hate the app as much as I implied earlier, but it's difficult to watch great apps and alternatives get swept under the rug simply because of trendiness and flash rather than substance and features. Still, you may not agree with me—perhaps you've used one of these apps and still prefer Instagram, if only to make iOS users angry? Perhaps there's a killer Instagram feature I've overlooked, or a killer alternative worth mentioning? Whatever you think, agree or disagree, share your thoughts in the discussions below.

Twitterrific by the Iconfactory was the very first Twitter application for the iPhone, even predating Apple's official App Store. It is full-featured, award-winning client with a beautiful and intuitive UI. Twitterrific supports link shortening and tweet translation in addition to the ability to filter your timeline for specific tweet types and trends. It's clean and elegant and color-codes your timeline so you can see tweets, @mentions, and DMs all in the same stream.
of the week. Bad Habits also starts with about 1,000 in TEA units, and 24,000 in album sales. The latter figure was boosted by an array of merchandise/album bundles sold via NAV’s official webstore, all of which included pre-sale access to purchase tickets to NAV’s upcoming tour. On the new Billboard 200, Bad Habits is followed by another Republic Records release, as Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next holds at No. 2 (62,000 units; down 7 percent). Since debuting at No. 1 on the Feb. 23-dated chart seven weeks ago, Thank U, Next has yet to leave the top two positions. The last time an album managed that feat (of spending its first seven chart weeks inside the top two) happened back in 2016, when another Republic album, Drake’s chart-topping Views, spent its first 17 weeks between Nos. 1 and 2 (May 21-Sept. 10, 2016). Back on the new chart, Juice WRLD’s former leader Death Race for Love dips 1-3 in its third week (54,000 units; down 27 percent). Rapper Rich the Kid earns his second top 10 album on the Billboard 200, as The World Is Yours 2 bows at No. 4. The set launches with 42,000 units (2,000 of that sum were in album sales). The artist previously scored a No. 2-charting album when The World Is Yours opened in the runner-up slot on the April 14, 2018-dated chart. XXXTentacion’s former No. 1, ?, bolts back up the list, rising 27-5 with 40,000 units (up 132 percent). The ? album’s jump is owed to its reissue with bonus tracks, and also within a number of merchandise/album bundles, commemorating the set’s one-year anniversary. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack descends 3-6 on the new Billboard 200 with 35,000 units (down 13 percent), while A Boogie Wit da Hoodie’s Hoodie SZN dips 4-7 with 32,000 units (down 4 percent). Post Malone’s beerbongs & bentleys shifts 6-8 with 31,000 units (down less than 1 percent) and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack slips 5-9 with 30,000 units (down 10 percent). Closing out the new top 10 is Mötley Crüe’s soundtrack to The Dirt, bowing at No. 10 with nearly 30,000 units (of which 15,000 were in album sales). It’s the first top 10 set for the rock band in more than a decade, and the act’s ninth top 10 effort overall. The group last visited in the top 10 with their most recent studio effort, Saints of Los Angeles, which debuted and peaked at No. 4 on the July 12, 2008-dated chart. Ariana Grande rewrites her longest command of the Billboard Hot 100, as "7 Rings," her second leader on the list, rules for an eighth week. She first topped the Hot 100 for seven weeks with "Thank U, Next" beginning in November. "Rings," released on Republic Records, holds at its No. 2 high on Radio Songs, despite a 1 percent dip to 91.8 million audience impressions in the week ending March 31, according to Nielsen Music. It drops to No. 3 on the Streaming Songs chart, after eight weeks at No. 1, with 35.5 million U.S. streams, down 3 percent, in the week ending March 28. On Digital Song Sales, it rebounds 6-5, after three weeks at No. 1 (17,000 downloads sold, down 5 percent, in the week ending March 28). Post Malone sports two songs in the Hot 100's top three for the first time, as "Wow." rises to a new high, pushing 4-2, and former one-week leader "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)," with Swae Lee, keeps at No. 3. "Wow." jumps 4-2 for a new peak on Streaming Songs, up 15 percent to 35.4 million streams in the week ending March 28, its first full frame of tracking after the March 19 premiere of its new official video. It's steady at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales (23,000, down 2 percent) and holds at No. 7 on Radio Songs (67.5 million, a new weekly best, up 3 percent). "Sunflower" rebounds 2-1 for a third week atop Streaming Songs (38.7 million U.S. streams, up 7 percent) and lifts 4-3 on Digital Song Sales (21,000, up 13 percent).
Each person also has a profile page, similar to Facebook’s, where you can add a cover photo, a profile photo, and status updates. You can also add fun little anecdotes on a sidebar, including what you’re eating, drinking, reading, watching, or quoting. In that sense, it’s a little reminiscent of the features some people enjoyed on MySpace. In the other sidebar, you can share bio details like your job, college, interests, and relationship status.
One word of warning: Many dating apps require Facebook integration to work, meaning you won't be able to use them if you delete your account. You can still create a Tinder account without Facebook, but you will loose all your current matches and conversations. Hinge and Bumble require you to have a Facebook account to sign up, though the latter company says it's working on dropping that requirement.
Metal for Facebook is actually an app that can replace both your Facebook and Twitter apps. This app allows you to set a “Metal Bar” in your notifications shade, so that you can access it at any time. Push notifications and themes are supported by the app, while the application itself weighs only 3MB. A special theme for OLED displays is included here, while this app also allows you to secure it via a password or your fingerprint.
With this network, you’re able to use your phone as a microphone, and record songs, bits of dialogue, and more. Uploading it to Musical.ly then attracts views, and comments and likes. It’s here where things can get a bit sticky with privacy, however. Would a parent be happy for a child’s performance (potentially wearing an outfit that emulates a star known for their sex appeal) to be publicly available online?

Honestly! I was thinking of leaving Twitter but what’s really the alternative? I get the news faster there than anywhere else; I have been able to pretty much choose the information I get on my timeline ( which is all in one place at the same time if I want to see it); I can block out the deplorables (yeah, I said it!)...so what is a REAL alternative? Although I would leave in a heartbeat because of the continued support of Alex Jones and his ilk...and go to what?
It used to be Instagram’s biggest rival but many feel that Hipstamatic lost the war. That doesn’t mean you can’t get better images from Hipstamatic than Instagram though. The beauty of Hipstamatic is that you can completely customize your camera to take unique pictures. With Hipstamatic you can change your virtual lens, film, or flash to find your own unique take on photography. Share your photos with other friends right in the app, or export them to your preferred social network.
Big Tech companies like Facebook and Twitter have taken advantage of our desire to do this. They “hooked” people then they manipulated what the users would see with algorithms. They collected every word you ever typed on social media and made assessments about you so they could sell that information to advertisers. They made a fortune off of every person who ever used their services, and deep down in the fine print, people gave them permission to do so.
Flickr has strong organization tools for your images, being able to bring together collections into "Albums" rather than having just one feed. Flickr also has a "Groups" section that are open-sourced public albums. This is a nice way to find collections of images of similar topics, themes, gear, or geography, but these "Groups" are too often messy, unfiltered, and unorganized.
From the planning side, collecting peoples' contact info can be a pain, sure. But that's a one-time bother. From there, use Paperless Post for beautiful and functional email invites and RSVP tracking. And for more rote calendar-coordination, use Doodle to find the best day for a dinner or meeting that works for everyone. The site lets each guest respond with a time that works for them, so you can easily figure out how best to accommodate everyone's schedule.

I switched to facebook because it was much more simple than myspace and didn't have all the crap myspace does. But facebook is making the same mistake myspace did by adding applications that can post and even have full control over your account. Also it seems facebook is filling up with a bunch of little kids now, which is making me lose intrest in even using the site anymore.
Buffer is actually one of the most popular apps from this list. This is basically a social media management application, as it allows you to schedule posts and track the performance of your content on various social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Google+. This app offers a simple design, and it’s a great solution if you need to schedule posts on any of the aforementioned social media channels, Facebook included, but it can also serve you as an app to check your Facebook feed, of course.
Another idea is to purchase an old school video cam and record real, permanent, physical video on cassette or reel-to-reel. You could also start a video/photo library made of SIM cards from your digital devices so you always have an original hard copy which you can upload to social media at any time without worrying about permanently losing it. I don’t know how much of my life I’ve wasted online, but It’s been too much.

 You will be amazed to know that Instagram allows users to upload about thousands of images on its platform within few seconds. It can instantly connect you to many other networking sites too like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr etc for easy sharing of stories. The best part is that this platform is not just limited to Photo sharing rather it can also be used for sharing eye catching videos but the maximum supported time duration for videos is 15 seconds only. Instagram also allows people to follow others like most of the social media applications. Users can customize their account settings with ease so that privacy of all uploaded photos or videos can be maintained.
Ich habe eine Frage zum global chat. Bisher war es immer so, dass man durch Enter das Textfenster für den Global chat öffnet. Jetzt wird dadurch allerdings das Fenster für den local geöffnet. In den Settings steht, dass die Taste für den Local entweder Einfügen (insert) oder / ist. Auch diese Tasten rufen bei mir das Textfeld für den local auf. Nur gibt es jetzt für mich halt keine Taste mehr für den Global. In den settings kann man auch gar keine Taste für den Global belegen.
