Yellow party

The superlatives and positive messages about the Norwegian user group’s (ISBG) launch of IBM/Notes Domino V10 in Norway yesterday has been pouring in all morning. As the leader of ISBG, this makes me immensely happy. And it gives bright hope for the future, and we will use this momentum when we’ve now started preparing for the spring seminar. Read on to see what happened at the launch!

Chicago Tribune

A little under two weeks ago I attended the LION 18 conference in Chicago. LION is short for Local Independent Online News and is an organisation for local news sites. Little did I know all the reactions I would get when I tweeted my surprise over how in bed Facebook is with local news sites and newspapers in the US.

Yesterday IBM Notes/Domino V10 was unveiled to the world in the first of a whole series of launch events around the world. We in the Norwegian user group, in cooperation with IBM, is doing the Norwegian launch in Oslo October 23rd. One of the biggest features (among a whole list of cool features like auto repair, Domino Query language etc) is that you now can use Node.js to develop solutions for the Domino platform. And ISW has now done something awesome that can give your Notes app increased life, even if your company has moved to Office 365.

Google+

Google has announced that they are shutting down Google+ for consumers. The biggest surprise for me isn’t that they are shutting down what was their attempt to create a competitor to Facebook. The surprise for me is that Google+ actually still exists.

Tomorrow sees the first unveiling of IBM Notes/Domino V10. Personally I’m really looking forward to it and on October 23rd we will have our own unveiling in Norway, arranged by us in the Norwegian IBM Collaboration Software Group (ISBG).  Now that HCL has taken over  the development of the the IBM Collaboration Software portfolio, they have started slowly revealing their plans for the Domino platform.

Last Friday 50 million Facebook users woke up and discovered that they had been logged out of Facebook. Not just one place, but on their computer, cellphone, the Messengar app and on all devices where they had used Facebook as their logon method. Facebook is saying that there’s no need for their users to do anything. Don’t listen to Facebook! Change your password now!

Yesterday I upgraded Office 2016 manually on my computer. This because I changed my Office 365 subscription to a payment plan that gives me more apps, like Teams and Skype for Business. This made the IBM Connections plugin for Outlook stop working. But thanks to IBM, I managed to fix it. Here’s how you can do the same.

Ego giving a session at Engage

As I’m sure a lot of you know, I do a lot of presentations and lectures, as well as giving courses and doing user training. I’m especially doing a lot of this kind of work when it comes to collaboration and efficient use of email and calendar. If you want me to come and have a look at your organisation and make you less dependant on internal email, make it easier for your organisation to find information and documents and help you find the knowledge and skills that you have in house, please get in touch!

Update 24.11.2018: Facebook has temporarily turned this function off after the security issues that happened in the autumn of 2018.

I’m sometimes asked how you can be sure that something you have posted can only be seen for either friends, or for specific friends, and not by everyone who visits your profile. This is very easy to do.

  1. Open your Facebook profile
    .
  2. At the top, on your cover photo, to the right of your name, you’ll find this button, View as:
    View as
    .
  3. Click on it. You will now be viewing your Facebook profile as it’s shown to the general public, meaning people who’s a Facebook contact:
    View As pubic
    .
  4. You can also check what your profile looks like to a specific Facebook contact. Click on the View as Specific Person link in the black field above your cover photo:
    View as specific person
    .
  5. Start writing the name of the person you are searching for and click on said person’s name when it appears in the list:
    View as -search
    .
  6. Now you can see what this person will se if he or she opens up your profile:
    View profile as
    .
  7. To close this view and go back to your profile as yourself, click on the x to the left inside the black field:
    Close view as
    .
  8. Now you will be taken back to your own profile as yourself

When you are viewing your profile as a public person, or as someone else, you can also click on the views for friends, photos, information about yourself and anything located under the More button to see what they can see of your photos, videos, information and friends list:

View as - other views

 

If you want to check out what is public on your profile, this is a very nice way to do it. You can easily check what photos, information or other things you’ve posted that is completely open on Facebook. You can then go in and change these settings.
