What Facebook’s Latest Changes Mean for you

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
Image by Hubspot Facebook has been under intense pressure lately. On one hand, both public and private bodies scrutinize its every move, worried about privacy issues and undemocratic material posted online. On the other, shareholders are troubled by dwindling membership. So, Facebook has been quietly making a number of changes, placing a renewed emphasis on building relationships and interactions. The company’s most immediate concern is losing members. In response, it wants people to stay longer on its pages by only showing them posts which are of genuine interest to them. It measures that by measuring how engaged you are to each type of post which shows up on your timeline. What does all this mean for you? Ari Meghlen has some tips for you. 1.

Get undercover with Jane

It gives me great pleasure in highlighting this book, Undercover, written by my friend, Jane Risdon. Hopefully, this brief article will entice you to grab a copy. Under one cover for the first time, a collection of crime shorts from Jane Risdon with more twists and turns than Spaghetti Junction – a must for those who enjoy gripping yarns. Undercover: Crime Shorts features new short stories written with strong female protagonists at its heart, and includes Sweet Sable – a redheaded nightclub singer with sex appeal and a sting in her tail, and The Look – a hit woman with an agenda for revenge and a talent for hire. There is an extract from the first novel in the series, Ms Birdsong Investigates Murder in Ampney Parva: Operation Matryoshka – where former MI5 intelligence officer, Lavinia Birdsong, is asked to look for a missing woman and finds herself embroiled in murder, the Russian Mafia, and Ukrainian gun-runners. My readers say: Roger A Price: a former detective and crime author says: Crime Shorts is a wonderfully satisfying anthology of seven short stories which transcend above the crime fiction genre providing a ripping yarn irrespective of the reader’s crime fiction preference. Jane Risdon has cleverly stitched together a mix of tales to suit all fans of the genre. Gloria Clulow: reader says: As with all Jane’s stories I find them intriguing and unpredictable, leaving me wanting more;…
