Facebook Insights is a highly useful tool for all Page managers looking for more information on their social performance and brand following.Here are the metrics you need to observe on a weekly basis, along with what you can learn from each one of them:This isn’t just about tracking the number of likes your Page has – it’s equally important to measure the number of unlikes you’re having every week.How does the ratio of like/unlike go for your Page?It may be an indication that you need to evaluate how to win more likes while ensuring that your existing audience does not feel the need to unlike your Page.It may become more challenging to maintain the reach of your Facebook posts as Facebook shifts more emphasis towards paid advertising, but it’s still useful for tracking performance.

Den ställning som skulle hålla uppe formen under gjutningen var helt enkelt för vek, bedömer Lukasz Sobon, projektledare GTolv byggarbetare skadades när en gjutform med betong kollapsade vid ett brobygge i Ludvika.– Först och främst tänker man ju på människorna som drabbats och deras anhöriga, säger Christer Persson, ombudsman på Byggnads med ansvar för Dalarna.Enligt företagets hemsida har deras många medarbetare stor erfarenhet av liknande byggen, särskilt broar.– Man kan ställa sig frågan om att Skanska, när man vinner upphandlingen, väljer att sälja bort jobbet, säger Christer Persson och antyder att det kanske blev billigare för Skanska att göra så.Persson säger att han inte vill spekulera i orsaker till olyckan eller brister som kan ha bidragit till det som skett.Larmet om olyckan vid bygget av den nya Kajbron, intill Ulrikakyrkans kyrkogård, kom strax efter klockan 14 i går och en stor räddningsinsats drog i gång.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is back — mostly.Samsung took the smartphone off the market last year after reports that the devices exploded.A non-flammable version, the new Galaxy Note Fan Edition, went on sale last week, but Samsung never explained which parts would be different.A closer inspection by the teardown specialists at iFixit (which we saw via The Verge) found that, save for the battery, the Fan Edition is virtually identical to the original Note 7.According to iFixit, the components inside are essentially the same as the old model."Beyond batteries, we've got exactly the same phone: no evidence of the rumored processor bumps, and no surprises," iFixit's report says.

The search for life beyond our Solar System is a slow, tedious process that involves identifying suitable stars, searching for planets in the habitable zone around those stars, and then hoping that the conditions on those planets are suitable for life to take root.When researchers made the announcement that they had found not one, not two, but seven new exoplanets that were all orbiting the same star called TRAPPIST-1, and that three of those planets were within the habitable zone, the astronomy community had good reason to be excited.Now, after further research, the dreams of finding life on any of the TRAPPIST-1 planets just took a major blow.Two teams of scientists led by researchers from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have reached unfortunate conclusions in their research of the much-hyped planetary system, and introduced a couple of new reasons why it would be hard for life to exist there.One team discovered that, despite the star at it center being relatively cool in comparison to most, it’s still putting out lots and lots of ultraviolet radiation.That radiation has the potential to degrade and in some cases destroy the atmospheres of the planets nearby.

I've never been to Littleton before and I have no idea where I'm going.He's wearing an orange hoodie with a fluorescent yellow bib that says "BLIND" in black bold lettering.His long, easy stride highlights the fact that I'm not a runner (I hate running) and showcases how much time I spend binge-watching shows on Netflix.As our hoodies grow damp -- mine from sweat, his from drizzle -- I joke that I run a 10-minute mile, but just for that single mile.Google's $1,500 eyewear grabbed headlines and readers' imaginations when four skydivers jumped out of a zeppelin while wearing Glass for a 2012 demo that introduced the device to the world.Surgeons are wearing ODG's glasses when performing a discectomy to relieve pressure from a herniated disk, for instance, with real-time X-ray feeds showing up on the heads-up display.

Amazon on Tuesday hosted its third annual Prime Day, a massive shopping event exclusively for members of its Prime subscription service.The company said sales on July 11 surpassed Black Friday and Cyber Monday en route to becoming the biggest day ever in Amazon history.Amazon hosted its first summer shopping “holiday” in 2015 to commemorate the company’s 20th anniversary.The inaugural event was a bit of a letdown largely due to the bizarre collection of products placed on sale but Amazon redeemed itself in 2016 with a far better showing.This year’s Prime Day was “too big for 24 hours” so Amazon gave members 30 hours to shop.Amazon says this year’s event grew by more than 60 percent compared to the same 30 hours last year (that comparison seems a bit unfair considering last year’s Prime Day didn’t span 30 hours).

A CBS creative team must’ve done a lot of acid while bingeing 90s TV on their smartphones – that’s the only conceivable reason this Candy Crush TV series, hosted by Mario Lopez and featuring contestants pulled from past seasons of Survivor and Big Brother exists.That or CBS looking to learn a few tricks from MTV’s The Challenge, while also picking up some brand sponsorship that got thrown in its direction without much thought to where it could end up.Candy Crush is obviously a game that most people are at least somewhat familiar with – it’s a matching puzzle title that has millions of mobile users, and it might have done more for mobile gaming than any other single game in existence.But its mainstream success is no excuse for this TV travesty, which unifies a bunch of also-rans in the misguided hope of making something new and unique.This is easily the worst thing I’ve ever spent 40-ish minutes (minus commercials) watching on television.I stuck with it through the whole thing to see if it would ever have a moment of originality, spark or personality – it did not.

Every letterbox in the U.S. was a prime target for AOL's promotional efforts in the 1990s and early 2000s, and this project is looking to document the disks that were distributed.Back in the 1990s, America Online, Inc. (AOL) needed to spread the good word about the benefits of a home internet connection, and the company accomplished that task by distributing free trial CD-ROMs far and wide.Now, these relics of the early online age are being documented and preserved on the Internet Archive.AOL trial CDs were something of an annoyance for recipients — and indeed, many households in the U.S. likely have one or two disks lying around in a home office or computer room.However, it was an undeniably successful endeavor for the company, helping to swell its user base from 200,000 accounts to over 22 million.At the peak of production, it’s thought that 50 percent of all CDs being manufactured worldwide were free trials for AOL internet service.

On 27th June, Google was fined £2.1bn by the European Commission for breaching antitrust rules by promoting Google Shopping's comparison service at the top of the SERP.The European Commission has ruled that Google abused its dominant position in the search engine market and gave an illegal advantage to another Google product, its own comparison shopping service.Initially launched as Froogle as a beta in late 2002, it was later renamed Google Product Search and then finally Google Shopping as we know it in 2012 with the move from free to paid product listings.This paved the way for some shopping ads to list the same product from a choice of manufacturers with a direct price comparison.Search for “canon eos 700d” and you’ll see:Similarly, a search for the latest “fitbit alta hr” will show you:

Samsung launched its Bixby digital assistant software in an unfinished state.Naturally, some in the Android community thought Bixby’s dedicated launcher button, located on the side of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Edge, could be put to better use, so they found a way to remap it.For a while, this meant the Bixby button could be assigned to a much more useful function, like accessing your favorite wallpaper app, for example.Devs responded again to bring remapping back to the device for some weeks before news landed yesterday that an update for T-Mobile customers in the US had once again restricted it.This means anyone with the latest T-Mobile OTA can’t make use of previous workarounds for the Bixby software, such as utilizing the bxActions app, though non-T-Mobile subscribers with the June security updates reportedly still can.The problem is, this doesn’t address the underlying issue — Bixby isn’t very good.
