I bid you farewell Twitter

By Vadim Dovganyuk

5 years ago, I started out on the Twitter social media platform. At this time, I was officially too young to be using this website, which eventually came back to bite me when the European Union (EU) introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which left me several weeks without a Twitter profile, until I…

Chrismukkah – An interfaith event, or maybe not?

By Vadim Dovganyuk

This year, (Western) Christmas (25 December – 6 January) and Hanukkah (22 December – 30 December) collide again.It’s not as bad as it’s going to be in 2024, but okay…(Eastern Christians celebrate Christmas from 7 January to 19 January, hence the “Western”.)

However, that was previously, and while Google started this year in good standings, Google is spiralling down fast, which even sources within the Google Corporation don’t deny. The company quite possibly will be following…

Social Media and its Bot Epidemic

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Bots, bots, and even more bots! That’s actually what social media platforms are about. Just look around you for a moment and you will see many examples of it. To start off, which has been “the hype” these last few weeks is Twitter. Let me be completely honest; do I have bots interacting with my…

Have a safe Cyber Christmas

By Vadim Dovganyuk

As it’s Christmas Eve, it’s likely people are creating beautiful memories, memories some may want to eternalize with photos. I am going to keep this short, as the message is short: “Don’t overly share photos online!” If you wish to end the holidays with your (and your family’s) cyber-safety intact, please keep photos private.
