Sorry about my recent absence from blogging! I have been so busy at school with my GCSEs, sorting yearbook and what not that I just have not had the time to come on here and write however I do hope to make sure that this blog will be regularly updated this summer! I have lots of plans and lots of things to blog about so please wait expectantly. I am still working on finishing up the yearbook but should be able to slowly ease myself back into the blogging world!
Another thing to look out for is when I finally get my YouTube account going! I have so much video to edit and upload but I lack the processing power to do so! I have lots of reviews as well as just random videos! Whenever I upload a video it will be accompanied by a blog post and now with my HD2000 they should all be high quality, HD videos! I also have Adobe Captive 4 and may start doing a few tutorials for you guys!
To keep up to date make sure that you are subscribed to this blog and that you follow me on twitter!
There is this big thing on Facebook about the lack of a dislike button. A countless number of groups have been set up protesting for the button to be introduced but Facebook has not yet taken note of this. Presumably the reason behind this is because they fear that the button my be used inappropriately in an offensive way and promote bullying, however there are also many situations where the like button can be used for this same purpose! In certain circumstances, a dislike button is the button that should be clicked. Look at this example that I mocked up:
The like button used for bad
If people want to be offensive and abusive to other people, they don’t need a Dislike button to do it! They will just write it in the comments so if this is the reason that a Dislike button does not exist then it is stupid!
Dislike buttons are also used widely on other websites but in a slightly different way; many forums will have a Karma system where you can like or dislike comments giving the comment an overall karma rating. An obvious example of somewhere that something like this is used is on YouTube:
The first dislike I could find on the first Featured video I could find on YouTube!
I totally agree that the Dislike button should be introduced and believe it would be good for Facebook. If Facebook is not introducing the dislike button for another reason or you don’t agree with what I have said, please inform me in the comments!
