RSS readers are a great way to keep on top of the news. Unfortunately, a lot of sites have moved away from RSS and towards just publishing all their articles on a Twitter stream.

What you can do, however, is convert their Twitter feed to an RSS feed. Here’s how.

Do I Own a Photo If I’m In It?

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about who is able to do what with photographs. One of the most pervasive ideas is that because you’re in a photo you own it, have “joint copyright”, or our in some other way entitled to use it.

How to Mute Someone on Twitter

Blocking someone on Twitter is pretty extreme. You won’t be able to see their Tweets, but they also won’t be able to see yours.

Instead, the best solution is to Mute them.

How to Un-tag Yourself in Photos on Facebook

Tags are a big part of photos on Facebook. They let your friends take pictures of you, and then when they tag you, they’ll appear on your Facebook page. Without tags, you’d have to download and re-upload any photos you wanted on your page. Unfortunately, because you can be tagged in any photo, you can be tagged in photos that aren’t of you, or photos where you don’t look so great. Your grandmother doesn’t need to see your drunken dancing.

Twitter can be a little bit crazy. By default, it’s like a large public shouting match. Anyone can weigh in, scream something, wave a sign, and generally interact with whoever else they want. This can cause some issues.

How to Block Certain People from Your Snapchat Story

Snapchat’s Story feature is so popular it’s been ripped off time and time again by Facebook. It’s a great way to share what’s going on in your life in a disposable way.

On social media, it’s easy to quickly post something without properly proofreading it. Autocorrect does a great job…most of the time. Thankfully, at least with Facebook, you can edit something even after you’ve posted it. Here’s how to do it.

How to Report Typos in Your Kindle Books

Lots of Kindle eBooks aren’t perfect. Maybe they’re self-published and the author never hired a proofreader, or maybe the eBook was made from an optical character recognition (OCR) scan of the print copy. Whatever the reason, there are plenty of ways typos and other small errors can creep into an eBook.

How to Get Notifications When Someone Posts on Instagram

Like Facebook, Instagram uses a feed sorting algorithm rather than have everything show up chronologically. This is great because it means you should see all the photos you most likely want to, but sometimes it means a post from a person you want to see everything from will get buried.

What Is Snapchat?

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably heard someone mention the social network/chat app Snapchat.

How to Create a New Catalog in Lightroom

In photography, ISO is a measure of how sensitive a piece of film or digital sensor is to light—the higher the ISO the more sensitive. With a low ISO you need to use a longer shutter speed or a wider aperture than you would if you’re using a high ISO. Most digital cameras have an ISO range of between around 100 and about 12,800.
