Market America Shares How To Share On Social Media

Market America was founded in 1992, and it was one of the first companies to help individuals sell products with the aid of the internet. The company does this through what they call an “Un-Franchise” model. This means that sellers are able to use Market America’s products and resources without having to go through the process of leasing a traditional retail space to make money.

The company has long been on the front of the independent sales model with it offering over thirty-five million different kinds of products through their online store. The company also offers service to help their sellers set up their own stores. This means that sellers are able to use online resources to make their own niche in the web where they can gather dedicated customers from across the globe.

Market America has long been involved in social media, and they regularly release content instructing their sellers on the best ways to use social media to promote their online stores. This information allows their sellers to attract new customers, advertise unique products and services, and helps them stay in touch with dedicated customers.

Market America’s recently posted a blog detailing how to use hash tags to set sellers apart. This is a useful tool as it allows sellers to distinguish themselves in an environment with many people posting, and where seller’s post frequently end up being buried by other posts in a short period of time. Their hashtags direct customers to Market America’s store Shop.com. The hash tags also allow other sellers to meet up with each other. This allows them to combine resources and share expertise. It also allows sellers to like and share each other’s post. This means that sellers can reach a much larger group of people by simply using a few hash tags.

Hulu updates app for viewer preferences, display, & new Live TV features

As the battle over the streaming media market continues, Hulu is making some changes that faithful viewers may welcome. The streaming service is giving its desktop and mobile apps an update to allow for better control over viewing preferences or suggestions. In addition, the service is trying to make their Hulu with Live TV aspect of the subscription service even better than before.

 

The Verge reported on Thursday that Hulu users can now get a better handle on all those suggestions and recommendations that Hulu provides to them. Basically, if a viewer has little to no interest in the recommended content, they can tell Hulu to stop giving those suggestions. Hulu’s VP of product Richard Irving said when a user chooses to dismiss the recommendations it will “remove the series, movie or sports league” from being recommended in the future.

 

Hulu is also changing the way a video appears on a viewer’s screen. There will now be a “portrait player” available to give viewers a choice of that view instead of the standard landscape display. That will be helpful with the Live TV aspect of the service, as it allows for a user to view the video at the top of their mobile phone with the channel listings underneath it. Speaking of that, the guide that most Hulu with Live TV viewers are currently able to see, is finally being added for smartphones.

 

There will also be a new Live TV control on the way. The company is reportedly giving viewers an icon available in the main navigation bar of the app or web interface. That icon can be clicked or tapped on to go to the last Live TV channel a viewer was watching.

 

Hulu has said they will debut the updated desktop version of their new format next week for only Live TV customers. Other Hulu subscribers without Live TV will see the new changes as of this summer. These latest moves should help Hulu as they continue to fight within a space they were among the original streaming services in. However, the streaming TV channels battle has really seemed to take shape within the past few years as Google, DirecTV, Sling TV, Sony, and Amazon are among those fighting in the space.

The Most Downloaded iPhone App And No, Its Not Facebook

Apple iPhone is one of the top smartphones in the world, and there are millions of apps that one can download from the Apple Store. Even though Facebook-owned Whatsapp messenger is among the top apps that have been downloaded by the Apple users, it is a China-based music video app with the name Tik Tok that tops the chart of the most downloaded app in the world. The app already has 45 million downloads within a matter of three months. It seems that Facebook is slowly losing its top status as other Chinese apps such as Baidu and Tencent are also gaining in popularity quite fast.

Other than Tik Tok and Whatsapp, there are a few other apps that are quite popular. One of them is the Google Map that saw around 22.4 million downloads in first three months of 2018. Another favorite app in the top 10 is the iQiyi created by Chinese tech company Baidu that saw 22.6 million downloads in the first quarter of 2018. According to the company, they have more than 480 million users who spend around 5.6 billion hours every month on their app. Even though Facebook has lost its top position, it is still on the top 10 list on the App Store. Another app that is not far behind is Instagram that has been downloaded about 31 million times in the past three months. Whatsapp, the popular messaging service, owned by Facebook, also has 33.8 million downloads in the first few months of 2018 with 1.5 billion monthly users.

YouTube has continuously been one of the top apps with 35.3 million downloads in 3 months of 2018. The free app comes second on the top downloaded apps list from the Apple Store. While this is the most recent list, it is to be seen if there will be more apps that would be able to overtake the top ones as we move into the second quarter of 2018.

OneLogin SSO Changes The Way Businesses Work Online

During the Internet’s early days, we didn’t have a sign-in process. People simply went to URLs and accessed the information there without interacting with it in any way. Small businesses and enterprise level businesses had the same set-up. There might be an office homepage, but there were no “users” of that system. They passively consumed the information passed along to them. Flash forward a few years and now you have logins. Are they secure, though? And are users and companies safe to share information under such a limited sign-in system?

Many security breaches later and we know that even the largest enterprise sometimes struggles to secure their information and company worker logins. That’s why OneLogin was created. It was the company’s mission to make it safer and more secure for businesses and their workers to share information across a single domain. It was crafted to be convenient, lively, but most of all, it was designed to be secure.

 

 

Enter Single Sign-in

 

 

OneLogin’s Single Sign-on was developed by a dedicated team of experts to create a lively information sharing platform that would also be completely secure through the strategy of multi-factor authentication (MFA). Single Sign-in gives users and office leaders the ability to login to the OneLogin system and then immediately take advantage of the portal built right into the operating system.

The result is a very secure and safe environment to share any kind of information in a confidential setting, away from the prying eyes of competitors or hackers. It keeps offices safe and to themselves, and we all know that today’s business world is cutthroat and competitive. No one wants company secrets being floated across the Internet and into the hands of a competitor or opportunitist. Thanks to OneLogin’s hard work, we now have the Single Sign-on system, and it’s working great for businesses right now.

 

How Single Sign-On Works

 

Your workers and users have apps that they use at work and those can be integrated into the OneLogin structure securely. They’ll have MFA techniques to keep the information safe and secure and give them free reign to make announcements, share emails, texts, databases, spreadsheets, and other vital company information across this single portal that connects them all to each other. We’ve learned through the success of social networks just how important software like this is to cohesiveness between team members and how much it can increase productivity and make everyone feel like they’re playing a vital role on the team.

Once MFA has been used, you just use the integrated program built into your corporation or business’s desktops. Other versions of the portal are available, but all of them will give you access to the information within the company’s cloud. And it’s all behind a secure firewall that makes it simple to keep everything shared across the domain completely secure and immune to things like attacks on information or attempts to gain access to company secrets.

 

What the “One” means

 

Onelogin’s Single Sign-on lives up to its name by requiring only a SINGLE login to the company’s portal. You’ll use a OTP (One time Password) that is sent to an SMS owned by the person who will actually be using the system. This is a much improved formula over the concept of using a password repeatedly until perhaps a hacker can guess it or somehow intercept it. With the one-time-password, you’re all set and logged in and that system KNOWS it’s you who is logging on because you are truly the person who received the SMS.

 

Securing the future of company success

 

The business world has always been a competitive, predatory place where companies compete against each other in sometimes ruthless ways. And good business owners know the value of products like Single Sign-On because they know that information is key in today’s business world. Your next app rollout could be a huge one that amounts to millions of dollars. Sharing that with anyone but your own employees could be detrimental to the future of your business.

With OneLogin, you’ve got a one-stop-shop for everything you want to share with your employees, and you’ve got added layers of authentication and security that will keep your business and your users safe as they interact on a daily basis. And what’s more convenient than turning on your work computer, seeing all your communication and productivity apps, and then getting straight to work without having to even login again after that first single, secured login? Nothing’s more convenient than that and thousands of businesses and users certainly agree that OneLogin is the true wave of the future for businesses who rely on apps for their livelihood and communication.

 

 

What’s Ahead for OneLogin

 

 

Even the best applications know that there’s always room for improvement, and there’s always room to grow more security measures as time goes on and hackers and other opportunists get more sophisticated. Software is in a continual state of progression and must be able to grow along with your business and your needs. Few would disagree that OneLogin is certainly going to be around for many decades to come thanks to their superb security measures and the utter simplicity of their portal and desktop versions that allow business’s workers and users to communicate in a completely safe environment at the stroke of a keyboard.

Tinder’s Evolution Continues

The dating app Tinder broke new ground when it came to online innovations when it made the concept of swiping more popular. On July 18, they began offering an extension to the app that now allows for easier movement between the picture of a person and the text that accompanies it with a simple tap of the screen.

Some have described this idea as a variation on what Snapchat and other social media sites have been offering. For Tinder, the photos are slightly larger, with taps to different areas of the photos leading to the presentation of additional information on the person in question or simple movement back and forth.

When the bottom of the photo is tapped, profile information that the other person has provided can be read. Other demographic information and the distance between the two people is also provided, along with a presentation of the other person’s interests and social media addresses.

For those looking to simply go through photos at a much quicker pace, tapping the right side of the screen moves to the next photo. If a need to return to a previous photo is required, a tap to the left hand side of the screen is all that’s needed.

In the past, Tinder has taken some heat because of what critics charge is a superficial way of assessing the quality of individuals simply on the basis of their looks. That’s led some of its rivals to zero in on other aspects related to personality.

More technical concerns are also being worked on by Tinder as mobile technology continues to advance at a rapid pace. Added simplicity when it comes to the makeup of the app is behind much of the thinking, since it will allow the company to adapt in quicker fashion than rivals.

3,000 New TV Episodes Set to Stream on Hulu Thanks to 20th Century Fox Deal

Hulu announced on their website today that they will be launching 3,000 new television episodes on their streaming service due to a new agreement with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.

These episodes will be from shows that are currently popular on cable television as well as dramas and comedies. Hulu has received streaming rights to shows such as “Bones,” “Burn Notice,” and “Glee.” Hulu will also be streaming older television series as well, such as “MAS*H” and “NYPD Blue.”

The list also includes episodes from shows that have completed and/or been canceled, such as:

“How I Met Your Mother,” “Raising Hope,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Better Off Ted,” “Reba,” “Life in Pieces,” “White Collar,” “The Practice,” “Don’t Trust the B—in Apartment 23,” “The Grinder,” “Blue Collar,” “Saving Grace,” “Lie To Me,” “Graceland,” “Dollhouse,” “Wilfred,” “The Glades,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “St. Elsewhere,” “Hill Street Blues,” and “The Bob Newhart Show.”

Even though 20th Century Fox Television Distribution owns one third of Hulu, the streaming service still needs to vye for the right to stream 20th Century’s content. Thankfully, they have been able to come to multiple agreements since their collaboration.

Previously, Hulu announced that they received permission from 20th Century Fox to stream episodes of “Bob’s Burgers,” “Futurama,” “American Dad,” and more.

Another deal arrived when 20th Century Fox and Hulu arranged for the streaming of television shows such as “This Is Us,” “Last Man on Earth,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” and “Homeland.”

Hulu has stated that these new television series episodes will be available to be streamed to subscribers’ in-home devices in the coming weeks, with no definitive release date set for any of the shows. TechCrunch states that it’s predicted that some of the episodes will be released by the end of the summer, and the full list of content should be accessible by the end of the year.

Hulu notes that they will be announcing the inclusion of even more television series episodes in the coming weeks.

Hulu Expands TV Offerings By 3,000 New Episodes

Hulu continues to impress as the online streaming service massively expands its audience reach. Hulu reflects the future of entertainment technology: a streaming platform in which preferred programming can be accessed on-demand. Hulu has recently signed an amazing deal with 20th Century Fox to bring another 3,000 television episodes to the platform. The deal probably was easy to sign since 20th Century Fox owns about a third of Hulu. Whether the deal was easy or difficult matters not. What matters is a ton of new programming comes to Hulu very shortly. Also coming soon is the future of how people watch their favorite television programs.

The classic television won’t be going away completely, but a host of broadcasting and cable channels might either dissolve or morph into an online platform. People love convenience. The ability to watch a particular television episode any time of the day or evening 365 days out of the year currently fuels the popularity of streaming services.

The ability to watch programming on a variety of different devices further enhances popularity. Hulu can be viewed on a mobile device adding a level of near infinity to the different locations in which programming can be viewed. Why read a dull magazine in the doctor’s waiting room when several episodes of NYPD Blue are available via a smartphone?

Hulu remains a pioneer in streaming programming and is well-primed for great success in the near future. Other streaming services are sure to follow suit but they would be playing catch-up.

Talk Fusion Is Excited About 2017

It is always great when there is a company out there that is exciting and fresh. Talk Fusion has kept it exciting and fresh for a decade now, which is no small feat and nothing to sneeze at, that is for sure. They have worked, clawed, and scratched for everything they have received. That is the way Bob Reina prefers it, though. He is a firm believer in hard work and putting your nose to the grindstone. That is how people get ahead and that is how people win. Talk Fusion knows this as they won two awards in 2016 from the Technology Marketing Corporation

 

 

They only give out this award to the very best in voice, data, and video. Talk Fusion is clearly the best when it comes to that. It can be found in the App Store for Apple users or the Google Play store for Android users. In fact, they have made it to where now both Apple and Android customers can communicate together, which is something that is really improving their client base and making people very, very happy. Bob Reina is all about making people happy all of the time when they use Talk Fusion. Their latest award was for the 2016 Communications Solutions Product of The Year Award.

 

Communication is something that is somewhat of a lost art form in today’s society, but with Talk Fusion’s video newsletters, video emails, video conferences, and video chats, communication can be taken to a whole new level. It makes communication easier than ever, and they are over the moon about that. Communication equals solutions. So many times, things get lost in transit or they get overlooked because people don’t know how to connect with one another and they don’t know how to say and do the right things.

 

With Talk Fusion, all of that goes out the window. They make talking and chatting easier than ever for everyone involved. When people take the time to truly understand each other and get to know each other, they connect in a way they otherwise would not have in the first place.

ClassDojo raises $21 Million in a Move set to make it the Leading Educational App

 

When Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don set out to set up ClassDojo, their primary objective was to bring teachers and parents closer in order to make a student’s learning experience at school and at home memorable. Since 2011, the company has remained steadfast in its efforts to make its founders’ dreams a reality.

 

The first step has been to raise resources that will enable the company to develop all the features needed to make ClassDojo app an official communication platform for parents and teachers. In their second round of financing, the company, and its investors were able to raise $21 million, money that will be channeled towards further development of the ClassDojo app.

 

ClassDojo’s founders have initiated joint effort with other stakeholders to achieve a ground-up change in the education sector. To begin with, students using Class Story receive motivation and encouragements from both parents and teachers who compliment them online for every display of hard work or academic excellence.

 

Parents have also lauded the app for helping them stay abreast with the progress of their children’s educational development at school.With its popularity among parents, ClassDojo app has been christened the Slack of education for creating a community that includes everyone in a child’s life to keep track of the learning progress of the child in school.

 

Teachers and parents using the app have commended the app for enabling them to interact without being required to hold physical meetings. Reliable reports indicate that 2 out of 3 schools in US have teachers who use the app to enhance the learning experience of their students. The teachers’ acceptance of the app indicates that the app may soon become a mainstream communication tool between them and parents.

 

According to a statement from Catalyst’s Managing Director, the funds raised in the round B of financing could be used to develop more content for the application. ClassDojo’sfounders were confident that in future,the app could be used to avail learning materials like books and videos to parents. For instance, in a program launched alongside Stanford University, Class Dojo is using animated videos to engage students on growth mindset.

 

ClassDojo is still yet to earn its investors any money but it has added immense value to education. Thanks to the app, teachers can communicate with parents effectively on different issues regarding a student’s learning progress. The parents have also found the platform from where they can follow up on their children’s learning and development.

 

Securus Is Easy For Our Church To Use

Our whole church is involved in a ministry that works for everyone because it was designed to help them get involved with people who need ministry and need help. We want to be sure that we are helping as many people as we can, and that is why we all as a church got together to start using Securus when we could. We have been using it ever since, and it is a very easy thing to manage. I thought that I would have to do a lot more work to explain to everyone how it works, but Securus really did create the most functional app possible.
Their app gives us a video feed into the jail where we can see who we are working with, and we have actually assigned certain people to work with certain other people. We are trying to build relationships, and we have even welcomed some inmates into our church once they have gotten out. We are not only helping to build people up, but we are able to see them so that they know that they have a partner in what we are doing. I am very pleased with the app I found from PR Newswire, and I think everyone in the church loves it, too.

I wanted to be sure that I could do something that would work well as a prison ministry, but I did not want to do something that was too impersonal. I made it so that we could all use Securus America app to talk to the inmates, and now some of the inmates that we have been working with are part of the church family and doing the same thing. We wanted to make a difference in their lives, and I am really pleased with the way that we have impacted everyone in our program.
