YouTube Makes Modifications to Upload Details and Analytics – Digital Information World

Posted: November 28, 2021 at 10:43 pm

Creators have become a bit of a precious commodity for most platforms, and YouTube is no exception especially when you consider the fact that it was perhaps the first ever hub for online creators to be able to just post whatever they wanted to based on their creativity.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that YouTube has just made a relatively small change that would nevertheless make it so that content creators would have a much easier time uploading lots of videos with ease. This change is coming to YouTube Studio, and it is basically making it so that you can reuse the same details that you might have added to older videos because most content creators have a set of signature information that they add underneath the details regarding the video itself.

Another change that YouTube is making is that it is adding a lot more analytics to its mobile app. While these are all analytics that you could already get on the desktop version of the service, you should bear in mind that being able to access this information on mobile is crucial. It can allow you to stay up to date on the state of your channel on the go. Most creators need to move around a lot while they are making their content, so this is a change that would definitely come in handy for most them in a really big way.

How to fundraise for nonprofits and charities on every social media app – Mashable

Posted: at 10:43 pm

There's no denying the power of a skyrocketing social media post millions of likes, views, or shares later, and people have suddenly built a fanbase, or raised tens of thousands of dollars, or finally reconnected with a long lost friend. Social media, with all its ills, can still be a startlingly impactful tool.

The majority of us may never have a viral post change a life, but social media apps allow users to make small differences for causes that matter. From Facebook's full fundraising platform to Instagram's donation stickers, your social profiles can see frequent use as mini-donation centers for nonprofits and charities. And, in a small way, maybe that can help soothe the complicated relationship we have with social media as a whole. Here's how it all works within each app.

While the app recently removed its personal fundraising tool that allowed users to receive funds directly for personal causes or small businesses (like its own version of a GoFundMe), users still have a ton of options to raise money for outside organizations. To support a verified nonprofit or charity, account holders can post fundraisers in their Instagram bios, use Instagram's Donation sticker, or host an Instagram Live for charity.

Instagram users can use posts and profile bios to create 30-day fundraisers for organizations of their choice. Just make a post as you normally would, by selecting the "plus icon" on either the Instagram home page or your profile page. Under the New Post settings, right below the location tag, select "Add Fundraiser" and choose your organization.

The post will link to a donation site, and a fundraising notice will be added to your profile's bio. The link will stay live for 30 days; 100% of donations go directly to the organization.

First, create a story on your personal profile by tapping the "plus" icon. Take or upload a picture something relevant to your cause would probably be helpful. Before uploading, add a sticker by clicking the square smiley face icon in the top right corner of the post draft page.

From there, simply click the sticker labeled "Donation" and scroll through or search for nonprofits and charities accepting donations on Instagram. Select the one of your choice.

You can also edit the text on the donate button to personalize your fundraising campaign.

To start a fundraiser on an Instagram Live, hit that same "plus" button and select the "Live" option. Before starting your Instagram live feed, select the "Fundraiser" icon on the left side of the screen (you might only see a small heart inside of a coin icon), and then choose your fundraiser.

Start your Live broadcast, chat with your followers, and raise money at the same time. During your Live, you can keep track of how many donations you've received by tapping the "View" button on the bottom of the screen and acknowledge donors by sending them "Waves" after they contribute.

Any TikTok user can add a fundraising campaign to their profile bio, which links followers to an in-app donation portal that keeps track of the campaign's progress.

Go to your profile page, tap "Edit Profile," and scroll down to the "Nonprofit" section. Click to select your nonprofit and save your changes. A pink link will show up under your bio alerting your followers that you're supporting an organization.

Users can also add their campaigns to TikTok LIVE broadcasts. Start a Live video by clicking on the "Create" (or plus) button at the bottom of your screen. Swipe to the right to go to a Live video, and then start your broadcast. During the session, click the three dots in the bottom right corner to add a donation sticker to your LIVE, which will allow viewers to donate while watching. Keep in mind, the sticker will link to whatever organization you are currently supporting in your TikTok bio.

Unfortunately for those of us who use the app mainly to surf others' content, TikTok's LIVE fundraising tools are only available to users with more than 1,000 followers (and are at least 16 years old). For more information on how to use TikTok LIVE, visit TikTok's support center or view the in-app guide by going to your profile settings, clicking creator tools, and then going to the LIVE Center.

Facebook's integrated charity platform, Facebook Fundraisers, allows users to raise money for nonprofits and personal causes through their own profiles.

To start a fundraiser, log into your account and go to the account menu. (For app users, find the bottom right icon with three lines, or use the scroll bar on the left side of your screen for desktop.) Scroll down to "Fundraisers" you may have to select "See More" to find it.

At the top of the Facebook Fundraisers page, select "Create Fundraiser" to start either a nonprofit campaign or a personal fundraiser for yourself, a friend, or a business you must link a bank account to use personal fundraising tools.

If you select a nonprofit fundraiser, you'll be directed to a searchable list of organizations and a page where you can edit the campaign name, description, monetary goal, and even currency. Once your details are in, create the campaign and revisit the Facebook Fundraisers page at any time to check your progress, post updates, and manage the fundraiser. The campaign will also be displayed at the top of your Facebook profile.

Also, be aware: Facebook's fundraising tools vary by country.

The Gadget Show’s Ortis Deley reveals his favourite tech from the show – Metro

Posted: at 10:43 pm

Ortis thinks rollable TVs are the future (Picture: Getty/ Metro.co.uk)

Ortis Deley, 48, is best known for trying out cool bits of tech on The Gadget Show.

But what gadgets does he like to use in real life?

We chatted to the TV presenter about rollable TVs, foldable phones and wasted vinyl.

Rollable TVs a flat TV screen that rolls into a box and, when youre done with it, you put it away. Its like an overheard projector but a fully functional TV screen.

The TV is usually the centrepiece of the living room but with this you can just roll it out of the box when you need it.

I liked the Microsoft HoloLens. You can be in different parts of the world but get together around a holographic image of, for example, a machine youre all working on so you can see your colleagues take pieces apart.

A few years ago, smart fabrics blew my mind. I visited a company that developed a fabric that conducted electricity and allowed you to power torches.

I have bought things after weve tested them. I bought a TV from the Sony Master series. Over the years, TVs have become thinner so you need a soundbar to go with it.

Im not a huge fan of soundbars and with this TV there are eight speakers directly behind the screen.

Foldable phones. Samsung are leading the charge with that. I like tech getting smaller and more discreet.

One day you wont see my phone, it will be woven into the fabric of my clothes.

Theres a growing market for nearly new tech you can find stuff that has a small defect like a slight scratch but that works just as well for a fraction of the price.

Fiit, which is for training at home. I started using investment apps over lockdown. Ive been using Kucoin, Binance and Coinbase. Im currently up but its been a mad ride.

As a young teenager I really liked the Lego Technics range. I had one that was a chassis of a car with a working gearbox and you could opt for two- or four-wheel drive. My daughter has reignited my love for Lego.

Ive bought the big Batmobile from the Tim Burton film and the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 car.

About ten years ago I bought a Pro-Ject turntable because I still have around 100 pieces of vinyl.

My plan was to get a piece of vinyl out and play it every day, then it went to playing it once a week, then once a month and now Ive probably only used it six times. Its just because I dont make time to use it.

Its concerning. My wife and I can spend an hour on the sofa not talking to each other, just scrolling through Instagram and uploading things. If its that bad for adults it can be damaging for young children. We limit our childrens screen time. Balance is important theyre young and wed prefer them to go outside and do activities.

Were trying to build resilient human beings so when they do see things online they can make judgements about what theyre seeing rather than thinking, I want to see more.

Deley is a judge of this years Royal Society Science Book Prize. The winner is announced on Monday

Stacey Solomon reveals bombshell new look on date night with Joe Swash – Metro

Posted: at 10:43 pm

Stacey gave herself a drastic makeover and did a great job (Picture: @staceysolomon, Instagram)

Stacey Solomon is rocking a bold new look after dying her hair bright red before heading out on a rare date night.

The Loose Women star quite literally painted the town red as she got glammed up for a night out with fiance Joe Swash, while their newborn baby girl Rose also joined them for the evening.

In her latest Instagram post, Stacey, 31, debuted her striking new hairdo with cute photos of her posing with Joe, 39, and multitasking by breastfeeding Rose at the restaurant. At one point, Rose was seen adorably gazing at Staceys new hair colour and it looked like the tot approved.

Sharing an update with her followers, the TV presenter explained: Date Night We had our first night (well late afternoon) out today I may have had a little moment and decided to dye my hair bright red before we went

I havent been out and felt like Ive looked human for a long time so I may have gone overboard but lashes didnt feel like enough.

She continued: You only live once. And I dont want to live it always looking like a foot 99% of the time i dont mind but ever so often its nice to feel nice .

Stacey clarified that Rose accompanied them on their evening out as she hasnt mastered the art of expressing yet and she doesnt feel ready to leave her alone but, at the same time, was keen to get a break and leave the bedroom.

Earlier in the day, the TV star had teased the process of her makeover by uploading a hilarious photo of her pulling a silly face with red dye in her hair and smeared across her forehead. She explained that would usually visit the hairdresser for such a job, but her stylist is also on maternity leave so she settled on the DIY job instead.

Stacey offered some encouragement for other mums and wrote in one Instagram story: On a serious note though it was nice to do something for myself.

Sometimes I think dont bother because maybe somewhere subconsciously I think it should never be about me and always about the pickles.

But it should definitely sometimes be just for us.

Stacey and Joe welcomed Rose, their second child, in October while the couple are also parents to two-year-old son Rex. She also has older sons Zach, 13, and Leighton, nine, while the former EastEnders actor is dad to son Harry, 13, who he shares with ex Emma Sophocleous.

Old and new memories of Santa at the REES – Pilot News

Posted: at 10:43 pm

* Originally printed in the Pilot News on November 26, 2018

As I was discussing my memories of the REES Theater from my childhood with REES volunteer Denny Bottorff about a week ago, one memory stood out in my mind above the rest for the simple child-like nature of it all.

When I was quite young, though the exact year escapes my memory, my father took me to the theater for a Christmas themed movie.

Much to my surprise I found myself standing in line to meet Santa Claus after the show was over.

I remember growing increasingly anxious to meet this mystical being that I had only heard about but never met face to face.

I could hear my heart in my ears pounding so hard in my chest as I was next in line.

Santa motioned for me to come sit on his lap and much to my dismay he asked me a question.

Though I was anxiously delighted to meet the jolly elf I had been painfully unprepared for any questions.

He smiled behind his white beard looking at me with sparkling eyes and asked, What do you want for Christmas?

For whatever reason I hadnt mastered the art of creating a wish list at this point in my life and had really always left the gift giving to Santas better judgment.

Not wanting to miss my chance to make this monumental request I answered in my small voice, A teddy bear.

A wave of relief swept over me as I slid off Santas lap and returned to my dad after successfully answering Santas question.

Though I had not set my heart upon that bear before meeting with Santa, I had been sure Santa would bring me a bear as he heard with his very own ears that a teddy bear was what I wanted.

Christmas morning came and to be honest I dont remember what Santa brought me that year because I noted what he didnt.

What he did not bring me was a teddy bear.

Please dont judge me too harshly.

It was not that I was ungrateful for the beautiful gifts Santa had brought me that year.

I simply marveled that perhaps he didnt hear me.

Perhaps he thought better of the teddy bear and wanted to give me something else instead.

Over the years that interaction with Santa became one of my cherished memories.

With age it became more precious to me for reasons that people as they grow older might understand without spelling it out here.

I was given the honor of covering the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in downtown Plymouth this year.

I spent the morning, afternoon, and evening enjoying the spirit of the holidays in Marshall County unlike I ever had in the past.

From Shop Small Saturday to the beginning of Saturdays festivities at 5 p.m., I marveled at how much joy was in my heart just to be seeing the community come together in nothing less extraordinary than a Whoville-like celebration with the only visible Grinches being in the form of decorations only.

The parade of lights, followed by the Christmas Tree Lighting by the bridge, and the photographs with Santa at the museum reminded me of the old movies I used to watch of a time which seemed simpler.

As I reflected on that I began to wonder if perhaps those times really werent simpler for the people living in them.

Hardship and beauty are as relevant in all walks of life as they are at any time.

Love in all it's forms are as timeless as any human conditions or emotion.

I sat in my office uploading festive photos from the evenings enchanting events.

I was contacted on my phone with a request to run down to the REES to meet a very special guest who would not be in town long and would make for a great interview.

I grabbed my coat from the back of my chair, ran down the stairs, and hurried toward the theater among those who were still walking along the sidewalks of downtown Plymouth taking in the last of the evening.

I was greeted by REES volunteer Denny Bottorff who opened the door for me.

As I peered around to see who this must meet interview was, I beheld Santa Claus wanting for me in the same theater where I first met him.

This time I was given the additional honor of being in the presence of Mrs. Claus.

All of my unpreparedness for the inteview of my lifetime reminded me again of that fateful interaction with Santa as a child over 30 years ago.

I couldnt help but laugh at the sweetness of it all.

I was invited to sit on Santas lap just as I had when I was a little girl.

He reminded me of when we met when I was young as he smiled behind his white beard looking at me with sparkling eyes.

We spoke about the teddy bear and Mrs. Claus pulled Santas bag out from beside his chair.

He pulled from his red velvet bag a beautiful, vintage brown teddy bear whose nose was slightly worn and his fur just the slightest bit aged.

Santa and Mrs. Claus brought for me the teddy bear that I had not received many years ago.

My precious gift was the same age as me - as if perhaps he had been mistakenly left behind in Santas bag those many years ago.

I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to the REES for providing me an opportunity to meet Santa so many years ago and for reuniting us this weekend.

I want to thank Santa and Mrs. Claus who brought me my teddy bear over 30 years later.

I couldnt help but think sitting on Santas lap at the theater how grateful I am that it is being renovated.

It is still one of my favorite memories from my childhood.

I couldnt help but think of an editorial that many of us are familiar with, Is There a Santa Claus?

I could almost hear the same words in my heart so many years later in the theater Saturday night, Yes, Virginia (Jamie), there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life it's highest beauty and joy.

That editorial was printed in the New York (Sun) Times in 1897.

I cant help but think how many times Virginias letter has been referenced in old books and movies in some form.

I am beyond humbled that this local reporter got to experience anything so precious over 100 years later.

I am thankful for all of the people who's existence are similar to Santas as described above.

An existence of love and generosity and devotion to their fellow man, woman, and child.

As the author of the editorial stated above, and I believe this is certainly true in Marshall County. (They) give to your life its highest beauty and joy.

Asia-Europe anti-fake news cooperation urged to be strengthened – Khmer Times

Posted: at 10:41 pm

The 10th ASEF Editors Roundtable (ASEFERT10) wrapped up and placed a bold cooperation front on fighting against fake news between the two continents Asia and Europe.

The agreement was made after a range of discussions between media practitioners of the two continents during the two-day event hosted by Cambodia in hybrid format.

Under the theme Strengthening Cooperation between Journalists in Combating Fake News, the ASEFERT10 is one of the major side events of the 13th Asia-Europe Summit (ASEM13) being organised by Cambodia on Nov. 25-26.

The ASEFERT10 consisted of two plenary sessions and a public forum.

According to a press release of the Ministry of Information, during the first plenary session, editors from both continents shared information, experiences and current state of the spread of fake news in their respective countries.

They also discussed and shared lessons learned and best practices in their respective countries in combating fake news and highlighted the significant roles and responsibilities of journalists in disseminating facts and credible information to the public; encouraging the public to be educated on media literacy; and to train citizen journalists to understand ethics and professionalism.

The editors of the two continents agreed that fake news is a global issue which is happening in Asia, Europe and the whole world. Fake news relevancy is occurring in almost every field, such as politics, economy, trade, and private life. It caused serious damage to the society and the daily life of the people, especially during the wide spread of the COVID-19.

In the second plenary session, the editors of both continents emphasised the need to tighten the cooperation between journalists and information officers, as well as government leaders of each country in continuing to strengthen and expand the mechanism of communication, consultation, and information exchange in a transparent and accountable manner. They also viewed that journalists and the government are the complementary partners, as the government need journalists to cover their work, while journalists need information to broadcast. Meanwhile, the journalists are required to strengthen their professionalism and ethics in order for them to regain the trust from the public.

For the public forum, the editors of both continents and the national and international journalists working in Cambodia discussed and exchanged experiences on journalism professional practices, information dissemination by citizen journalists, especially on social media platform and measures, including legal measures, taken by each country to combat fake news and promote the freedom of expression.

The 10th ASEF Editors Roundtable was a success and a proud achievement, with the aim of strengthening and expanding cooperation between journalists of the two continents and stakeholders in the fight against fake news and raising awareness of the importance of bilateral and multilateral cooperation between journalists in both continents.

The event was held under presidency of Khieu Kanharith, Minister of Information, and Ambassador Morikiwa Toru, Executive Director of the Asia-Europe Foundation, and attended by editors and senior journalists of print and broadcasting news outlets of the two continents. Chea Vannak AKP

[OPINION] Solid states: Fake news, Filipino politics, and the excesses of ‘pakikisama’ – Rappler

Posted: at 10:41 pm

The current election cycle shows how these distortions carry over to the level of national politics. Pakikisama can be abused to quash any dissent to the opinion of the majority, or to the groups authority figure(s).People raising grievances, objections, or even questions are seen as threats to group harmony. They must be silenced or expelled. The actual or self-appointed majority rallies around a certain narrative.They will keep the faith, even in the face of compelling evidence against their claims.Legitimate news and archival sources will be dismissed as fake, biased, or Westernized.It explains why so much money has been invested in pro-Duterte/pro-Marcos online trolling.Collective vitriol on this scale is meant to normalize fanatical support for the allied dynasties. Conversely, it is meant to break the spirit of the opposition by convincing its members that they are alone walang kasama.

Former ‘RHONY’ star Heather Thomson says show’s storylines are ‘staged,’ ‘fake’ – Fox News

Posted: at 10:41 pm

Former "Real Housewives of New York" star Heather Thomson called out the show for creating "staged" and "faked" storylines.

Thomson criticized the show while talking to a New York Post photographer outside the high-end Japanese restaurant BondST in New York City.

The reality TV star specifically called Sonja Morgan's engagement to Harry Dubin during season 12 "fake." Dubin proposed to Morgan while Luann de Lesseps was crying over her breakup with Jacques Azoulay.

"It was completely staged and totally fake," Thomson told the outlet. "It was a ring that Ramona was wearing. And she took it off and gave it to Harry to pretend that it was his it was oneupmanship."


"The authenticityismissing," she said. "The women were self-producing, and many storylines were forced and contrived."

Thomson originally left "RHONY" in 2015, but has since made appearances on the reality TV show.

Thomson did defend the women who decide to join the "Real Housewives" franchise and instead laid the blame on the "machine."

"Generally speaking, the women that join the show are not self-absorbed, catty, horrible people. Theyre birds in gilded cages. They go in there with the right intention, but then you get sucked into this system of what the viewers want," Thomson said. "These women are part of a machine that has awarded them and fed them for outrageous behavior. Its a career. Its their check. And they dont have other jobs outside of it. And so you become a product of the environment of what the fan is looking for.

"Lets be honest: Watching women behaving well and doing great things for each other doesnt make must-see TV."

Thomson officially left the show in 2015 but has made appearances since. (Jared Siskin/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images)


She also blamed the audience.

"You cant really talk about the people without talking about the system," Thomson said. "Everybody has culpability in this the viewers, the network, the women on the show. Were all complicit."
