PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW:
THE TRUTH BEHIND FB’S SHADOW PROFILING

There’s a reason not everyone wants to be connected on Facebook. ✋

The results of Facebook’s People You May Know algorithm are anything but obvious.

Behind the Facebook profile you’ve built for yourself is another one, a shadow profile, built from the inboxes and smartphones of other Facebook users.

How do they do it? It’s basically down to one of the first steps of joining Facebook – allowing the social media giant access to your address book.

This way they gather far more networking information than just who is on Facebook, but other connections with people you aren’t even connected with online.

This then exposes far more information than you’d ever consider. Not just mobile numbers, but work contacts and residential addresses. And we’re talking about friends exposing other friends personal details without their consent.

It’s precisely this exposure of personal information that has enabled Facebook to discover it has just three and a half degrees of separation from one person to another.

MRKTRS ON THE MOVE:
A HANDY HACK FOR THE GOOGLE MAP

Don’t be that guy who leads your pack astray 😧

Google Maps has got a very helpful feature, that coupled with a sneaky hack, is invaluable for the traveling entrepreneur: the save feature.

  • Mark & save your destinations before leaving
    internet
    .
  • Download your map for offline viewing.
  • Put your phone into airplane mode with WiFi enabled for free GPS tracking.


Never get lost again. Or miss out on the Pasteis de Nata you were told to try.

TYPOGRAPHY:
SIMPLE TIPS TO UP YOUR LANDING PAGE GAME

You know what they say…Well executed typography is worth a 1000 words. Or an image. ✍️

Typography is crucial in the online world. Selecting the right font is just the first step. Especially if you’re building a brand or selling a product and wish to express its narrative on a landing page.

Here’s some killer advice from the landing page gurus at Unbounce:

  1. Break the rules where possible: test ‘bad’ typography and defy the general design principles.
  2. Fewer fonts to clarify hierarchy: Try one font family in 2-3 weights or two font families in 1-2 weights. More than three typefaces can be distracting and chaotic.
  3. Match the typography with the style and tone of your brand: Typography can enhance your copy and the experience.
  4. Typeface as part of your message: If typography is done well, it can remove the need to reinforce your message with images or colours. A word can replace an image – like these examples.

HOW TO BEAT PHONE ADDICTION

Phones are engineered to be addictive and hijack our attention. 🎰
Tristan Harris, Former Design Ethicist at Google, compares the lure of your phone to a slot machine.

Colourful notifications about everything and the neighbours dog keep you coming back for more dopamine hits.

And here’s how to combat the
addiction
. Enabling grayscale on your phone.

Everything just looks less appealing. And suddenly the urge to check your instagram feed is much less desirable.

The feature is generally found under ‘Accessibility’ in your settings. Find out more in the full article. 👇
