Social Permissions for 2013

leave a comment »

Social Permissions fo 2013Last year I found myself overwhelmed by changes in the privacy settings in many of my most used Social Media applications. I decided then, what I’m going to tell you now: Just set everything to open, and don’t post stuff you don’t want on your??permanent??record online.If you are rather more lackadaisical to the issue of privacy you might want to try MyPermissions, which has an overview of all the settings.

Alternatively you could use PrivacyFix which can automate this for…

FaceBook killing permanent Offline Access in October

Finally the perpetual Offline Access for apps will be removed in October, it will be replaced with a short-lived or long-lived access_token depending on the environment. In October all existing offline_access access_tokens will have their expiration time truncated to 60 days.

This means that as long as users visit the app the new access_token is updated to enable the app to access the data in offline mode, if the user doesn’t use the app the access…

Best Time to Tweet

For those of us who care about reaching our followers when it suits them we can adhere to the infograph below as a general guide.

The problem for me is naturally 2 fold:

  • These stats cover one specific timezones: I work over multiple timezones getting engagement from Asia, Europe and the US.

HootSuite Auto Scheduling using Google Docs #twitter

with one comment

I like using the HootSuite bulk uploader, and round the time I posted the post HootSuite Bulk Uploads I had set up a Google Docs file to produce the csv file it requires as input. It can simply be made by uploading the example provided by HootSuite to Google Docs and using that as a template.

Google Documents Validation

As I was explaining the features of HootSuite to my mother, including the bulk uploader, I suddenly realized that I could make my spreadsheet more valuable for myself and others by adding a check to see whether it has 140 characters. I wasn’t able to use the regular Docs Data Validation, so I decided to roll my own in the script editor, which meant adding a Trigger to the script so it is called after the spreadsheet is edited.
