What are we able to do for “lads”? Biting the truth and compromising friends at the top of the list

Posted on April 18, 2017  in My Blog

People use social networking sites to boast to their friends, collect as much of a liking as they can and have a good reputation. But striving to win recognition in the eyes of others, sometimes deliberately pass the truth and color their lives.

A survey conducted by Kaspersky Lab shows that one in ten people would be willing to bend the truth on social networking sites so that more people like her posts. The study also shows that during such hunts, men are more likely than women to reveal themselves.

To attract attention and provide for a large number of likes, about one in ten (12%) pretend to be somewhere or do something that is not entirely consistent with reality. The survey shows that men are more concerned about the likes they get on social networks than women, and that chasing more and more thumbs up are more likely than women to disclose something that is confidential or may embarrass their co-workers, friends or employers.

Men are also more worried when they do not get as many likes, as they count – 24% fear that if few people appreciate their posts, friends will think they are not enjoying social popularity. For women, such concerns are 17%. 29% of men also admitted that they felt depressed if their posts were not liked by an important person.

Spotify differentiates on disc releases

Posted on April 11, 2017  in My Blog

Spotify introduces the announced variety of offerings to paid and free users. The first will get access to new albums two weeks before the rest.

Spotify is one of the few music services that works for popular artists for free. Of course, you can also pay for the subscription, but this does not affect the music offer, but only for additional options. But this will change now.

Music labels have long disliked the policy of the site, which provided the music they were able to listen to for free. They pressed for a change of strategy and finally got their way. Spotify has just announced that it is introducing a variety of musical offerings.

Subscribers to the service, who pay a subscription every month, get the latest albums of well-known artists so that they receive two weeks free of charge. The change of policy is part of a larger deal with the Universal Music Group, where certain albums will only be available for a limited time.

Artists will decide whether their latest albums will be available for two weeks exclusively to subscribers or whether they will be able to listen to them all at once.
