Facebook rolled our facial recognition software last year to the US. It automatically scans photos and if it finds you, or someone like you in a friends photo. It will then suggest your name so that your friends can tag it.

I was brought up on SEO - ensuring good meta tags and keywords; good headings; words in the copy that users are looking for, search friendly urls, etc, etc. More recently I've paid less attention to some of this, but focused on ensuring page design is socially friendly. Many people spend more time seeking advice...
This Annie Lennox song Universal Child is my favourite song at the moment. Lovely lyrics which reminds me of my visit to Beautifal Gate childrens care home in Lesotho earlier this year. Watch the video and read the lyrics - every child has the How many mountains must you face before you learn to climb. I'm gonna give you what it takes, my universal child. I'm gonna try to find...
