Protect Your Social Media Accounts

32 million Twitter passwords were sold for whopping 10 Bit coins (around $5,775). Though Twitter denies the hacking fact, but as far as sources are concerned, the fact is real. The major fact that can be concluded from this is that it's not tough to hack one's account. Some steps can be taken to insure that your tweets do not fall in the hands of those who would use them for spam links. One step is to get a password manager, like LastPass, who would generate a random password for you which is difficult to hack as the passwords undergo the process of hashing. The second option is going for an OTP along with your normal password for every time you log in. Hacking can only be achieved if you lose your device. Twitter, Apple, Google, Facebook and Microsoft, all provide this under the 'Security Privacy' tab.

Factors Influencing SEO

A successful SEO campaign must take care of branding, user experience, and other such factors. The two key characteristics that outstands one's content is length and topical authority. Sometimes,   writing long-form content covering a single topic in depth becomes important. A backlink is an integral part that helps Google to view a page's authority.

Facebook Is Prepping Up In a New Way!

Facebook Is Prepping Up In a New Way!

Facebook is testing a new feature that will give users the option to publish a post only to the News Feed and not on their Timeline.
