The technology that we literally have at our fingertips these days is pretty astonishing. All that we can access is right there in front of us. We can talk to friends that are miles away, even in different countries or time zones at the touch of a button. We can order food and have it delivered in a couple of hours. So with all of that in front of us, our social lives should be the best they’ve ever been, right? Wrong! For many people, they aren’t, and they need a bit of a shake up. So here is how you can use technology to help improve your social life, and not just let you become a recluse.

Go Live!

If you’re at an event or somewhere that you want to tell people about, then how about going live on your Facebook page or your Instagram profile? First of all, people will get notified that you are going live on your page, so they can join in and see what you are doing. So it is a great way to reconnect with other people, especially those that you haven’t seen in awhile. You get to see who is logging on to see you, so it gives you the chance to ‘talk’ over it or to even reconnect after you’ve finished the live broadcast. If your friends are going somewhere that you want to be at, then you could always ask them to go live so you can see or hear whatever it is.

Video Calls

The only problem with going live on social media is that there are certain restrictions. If you’re at a concert or a gig, for example, the feed would be cut off because of copyright infringement purposes on the songs. So you can always use video calls too if you just want to be more specific with who you are sharing with. You can do this on social media platforms too, as well as on your phone with apps like Skype and FaceTime. With all of this, though, it means that your phone has to be in good working order. So if it isn’t working at it’s best, and you could look into how circuit board repairs can save your cell phone, as well as other storage or data problems that could be slowing it down. It also pays to have your charger with you or a backup power source. Then you can keep in touch to your heart’s content.

Use Locations

If you are meeting friends for a drink, then you can easily send them your location in an app like WhatsApp. You don’t need to know the address of where you are either. You can simply press send location and choose who you want to send it to. It works well if you’re on a night out or a festival or gig too. Then you can meet up quickly and easily.

Connect Your Calendar

One of the great things with smartphones is that they can connect with our apps. So we can get notified when it is people’s birthdays, or certain dates to remember. So make sure you connect your calendar to them, so you’re always up to date with what is going on. You can also sync calendars with other people, such as your partner or best friend. Making plans was never so easy!

It’s rarely for me to see Nike doing collaboration with the other brands or names as their brand, I know, is really independent and wanting their trademark to be in each of their items as they need to release any new in the market. But today, I have found out that Nike is now fondness on doing so and anytime soon now we might see other brands collaborating with them too.

Actually, I did now as its official that Nike is collaborating with Kim Jones for one awesome kicks. And you can able to see the peek on above photo though we didn’t know if they revise it for more betterment or not as it does only the first base, I think so, for the piece they’d cooking off for as all. But let’s see soon if this shoes will be part on their collaborative pieces or they did just decided to eliminate it.

But to be honest, I dont like the features they’d used to this shoes as well the material, I think I just liked the airmax better that to this, Sorry! but I dont like their ideas for this one.

Did you know that the average American spends up to twenty hours a month on Facebook? When you think about it, that’s a pretty crazy statistic. We all know people who just log in once in awhile to check their messages and pay no notice to their newsfeed. But then we also know lots of people who are guilty of spending half their waking lives flicking through their timeline. The social media network, founded by Mark Zuckerberg over a decade ago, is still one of the biggest behemoths of the online age. There are three million Facebook posts going live every single minute, and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

So what is the last thing you do before you go to bed at night? Do you put down your book, switch off the light, and manage to resist that one last check on facebook? If that’s your pre-sleep routine, then you’re not doing yourself any favors. Blue light plays havoc with our sleep patterns, which is why experts recommend that you switch them off two hours before bedtime.

But what if you can’t? There are plenty of people who reckon Facebook is a waste of time, but more and more of us seem to be addicted to social media. But it’s not all bad, no matter what the naysayers might tell you!

It can help you relax

Studies have shown that when you flick through Facebook, reading your friends posts and pages you’ve liked, it can help you relax. It has been demonstrated that when you spend time on the network, you are likely to experience a lower heart rate. You may also reduce levels of tension and stress. There’s a reason to log in, just there!

Fire up Your Friendships

Facebook is a handy way of keeping in touch with all of your friends. It’s also excellent for trying to locate people you’ve lost contact with over the years too. In the past, if you wanted to track down family or find a lost love, it was much harder to do than it is now. There wasn’t any internet, for a start. Of course, not everyone is on social media, even in 2016, so it’s not a foolproof way to find someone. You could always go old school and hire a private investigator!

Facebook can boost your self-confidence

We all want people to like us in our everyday lives, and it is no different online. According to research, spending as little as 180 seconds on the social platform can make you feel a whole lot better about yourself. Maybe it’s because we can pick and choose what information we put out there. You can carefully craft your image, and make your life seem more exciting than it is. The biggest ego boost was shown to be found by editing your profile while taking a break from Facebook. It’s not clear why, but it provided the greatest boon to confidence over any other action.

Slim down with Support

If you’re trying to lose weight, then don’ do it alone. Participants trying to shed a few pounds lost more when they were members of a Facebook community or group that provided peer to peer support. Those that chose to go it alone lost, on average, nearly five pounds less than those who did it with online assistance. So, you could forget the gym once in awhile and still lose weight!

Provide Inspiration

Seeing all of your friend’s posts can give you your own ideas for a whole host of things. Things to do, places to go, the list goes on and on. Let’s face it; it’s hard not to get jealous when you see your friends snaps from exotic destinations. Take their lead and book yourself a vacation. It’s well known that getting away from it all is good for you.

When we shop for bags, what we always think about is how pretty the bag is and not how well suited it is to our body type. Not every handbag is ideal for every woman. The rule is for you to buy the opposite shape of your body type. Look at yourself in the mirror and carry the bag as you usually do and meticulously stare at it in all angles. If you’re tall and thin, choose handbags that’re wider than they’re tall and the straps should not be short. Clutch bags are great for thin and tall women. Don’t carry a small bag if you’re plus-size. Select a big structured bag to balance out your curves. Furthermore, don’t choose bags with tiny patterns.

If you’re petite, don’t use large bags because these will overpower your frame. Don’t buy bags with long straps because it will make you look smaller. Always remember that smaller bags make you appear taller. If you’re pear shaped, stick to bags that will fall between your natural waist and above the hips. Women who’re apple-shaped should have bags that’re structured and wide because they balance out your upper half. If you’re someone with no curves, better shop for hobo and satchel bags since they give curves to your figure.
