Instagram Finally Let's you hide Inappropriate Comments

 Instagram has been rolling out several updates recently and I think they have realized,there is no  time to give competition a chance. In July, they rolled out instagram for business, a business profile that works and looks just like Facebook profile and had this 'hide abusive or inappropriate comments' feature, which appeared under the 'Comment Moderation' sub menu of your app settings.

You can turn on the hide inappropriate comments features just the same way you do for your business profile. Just Simply Click on 'Settings' , Click on 'Comments' and the toggle on 'Hide Inappropriate Comments' . SO anytime a word or a phrase is reported as Inappropriate, Instagaram will filter it.

This is a very welcomed development, Instagram itself even describes it as the first feature it's introducing to help people with diverse cultures, religions, races, and more feel safe.

Even though we know trolls have been finding their ways around filters, because some are entirely newly created while other are formed from misspelled slurs, but you can your own custom keywords and phrases to help filters catch abusive words easily.

How to Stop those Unsolicited text messages from Glo, MTN, Airtel, Etisalat

Nigerian Communications Commission  enforces 2442 DO NOT DISTURB Short Code
Following a Direction to the telecommunications service providers in the country, the operators, will from July 1, 2016, activate the DO NOT DISTURB facility which gives subscribers the freedom to choose what messages to receive from the various networks.

With this Direction the operators have been mandated to dedicate a common Short Code (2442) which will enable subscribers take informed decisions.


Mr. Tony Ojobo, Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), in a statement, said this action was taken in order to protect subscribers from the nuisance of unsolicited texts, and therefore a direct regulatory response to the yearnings of the subscribers.
By this action, he explained, the Commission has invoked a regulatory provision which had hitherto been overlooked by the operators.


Taking cognizance of the broad range of services which include: Banking/Insurance/ Financial Products, Real Estate, Education, Health, Consumer Goods and Automobiles, Communication/ Broadcasting/ Entertainment/ IT, Tourism and leisure, Sports, Religion(Christianity, Islam, others), the Commission directed the operators to give the necessary instructions and clarifications that will enable subscribers subscribe to a particular service/services /none at all.


In fact, a Full DND which is SMS “STOP” to 2442 does not allow the subscriber to receive any unsolicited message from the operators at all.


Below are the various options:
“SMS 1” for receiving SMS relating to Banking? Insurance/ Financial products to 2442
“SMS 2” for receiving |SMS relating to real Estate to 2442
“SMS 3” for receiving SMS relating to Education to 2442
“SMS 4” for receiving SMS relating to Health to 2442
“SMS 5” for receiving SMS relating to Consumer goods and Automobiles to 2442”
“SMS 6” for receiving SMS relating to Communication/ Broadcasting Entertainment/IT to 2442
“SMS 7” for receiving SMS relating to Tourism and leisure to 2442
“SMS 8” for receiving SMS relating to Sports to 2442
“SMS 9” for receiving SMS relating to Religion to 2442


Ojobo pointed out however that the decision of the Commission does not affect personal messages or person to person messages which are private communication by individuals.
He urged the operators to comply immediately with the Direction issued by the Commission and never again harass subscribers with unwanted messages.

NBC To Broadcast 85 hours of Olympics Coverage in VR

NBC has said it will be doing it's first large scale test of VR and a big event like the Olympics is a very good test ground. It would be providing 85 hours of Virtual Reality programming in Rio this August, even though it's not going to be available for everyone.

For now, the 360 degree experience will only be available to those who own Samsung Galaxy Smartphones and the Gear VR headset because the VR Coverage is Samsung exclusive.

Several sports have had their fair share of VR broadcast, In May, it was the Kentucky Derby that received the 360 degree video, and just this month, Fox Sports had the US Open receive a 360 experience on VR.

I believe in years to come this would be a much bigger trend, as events like the world cup, several grand slams, who knows maybe the Uefa Champions league will all be live on VR.

VR Headsets have the affordable ones and I bet you, the next big event on VR might not be Samsung exclusive so I guess you can enjoy the experience by getting one.

You can also back up your photos and videos on PC, or use can use a cloud back up service like Google Drive. Once you have successfully backed up, you are ready.

If you are using Sony Xperia Z3, you need to first sign up to Sony's Android N Developer Preview Program . but for any other device listed above, you just need to register your device on Google's Android Beta portal.

Once your device is enrolled, you will be sent Over the air (OTA) updates every week until the Android N is fully released. If you stay in the Sony's preview program, your device will also get preview maintenance releases after the final release.

In Recent times Glo network quality has been very poor, and a lot of subscribers are complaining. Their 3G Network now crawls and this can be very annoying as nobody want to ever experience a very slow internet connection.

With this cool gesture, they will sure gain quiet a lot of customers but if they do not do something about their Network Quality, most people would prefer to use low packages that have good network quality. We are waiting to hear from Airtel, Etisalat and MTN.

Instagram For Business : A Business Profile and Tool for Instagram that looks just like Facebook Pages

They have rumors that Instagram are likely to release a business profile page, but now, the rumors have finally come to reality as instagram for business have arrived .

Accounts recognized as a business on Instagram, will receive tools to help post engagement and promotion. The Insights tool, can help business owners see how their posts are performing at a particular time so they can decide when it's best for a post to be published .

Just like Facebook, the business profile comes with a call to action button for posts and promoting posts is also easy, as you can select a target audience for the post, time period for the post to be displayed or you can just let Instagram sort it out automatically for you. With a business profile, business can now choose how they want their customers to get in touch with them: call, text or Email with a tap of the contact button as well as get directions.

Instagram has over 200,000 businesses that are making use of it's resources for promotion so it was unavoidable for them to give these users tools that will make it easy to reach out to more about and tell them their business story. Just like Facebook Insights tool, it displays reach and  Impressions, alongside fans growth rate. It helps you turn well performing posts into ads right within the app, thereby helping you reach out to more customers.

I think Facebook plans to give it's business users double or nothing, as the assume business owners would use both Instagram and Facebook tools as both look very similar, flexible and easy to use.

According to Facebook, Instagram business profiles, Insights and ability to promote posts would be available in US, Australia and New Zealand in few months , and would be available globally by the end of the year.
