*I’m adding a disclaimer of sorts to this post due to a few people who seem to think that I’m claiming to be an expert. When I use the word – expert – to refer to myself, I’m being sardonic towards myself. I use humour to deal with my pain. I am not an expert, I simply grew up with parents who are narcissists, who made my life a confusing hellish nightmare.

I’m sorry if I did not make it clear enough in my words, I thought I had.

This is a personal blog (by a real person and human being) where I share some of my experiences and thoughts. This is one of the ways I have chosen to sort through my own issues.

When I wrote this post I did not expect anyone to read it, posting it publicly was a challenge to myself to break through the…

As part of the Feel No Shame campaign launched on World AIDS Day to reduce stigma around HIV, British Prince Harrydivulged a secret on Monday, telling viewers that “believe it or not, I get incredibly nervous before public speaking, no matter how big the crowd or the audience.”

The campaign is being run by Sentebale, a charity co-founded by the prince in 2006 in order to support children affected by the AIDS crisis in Lesotho.

In a video message, Prince Harry said: “Despite the fact that I laugh and joke all the time, I get incredibly nervous, if not anxious, before going into rooms full of people when I’m wearing a suit.

Facebook is simply crushing it in mobile

Originally posted on Quartz:

Facebook’s future depends on its ability to figure out—and dominate—the mobile internet the way it quickly grew on the desktop web. While not everything Facebook launches is a hit, the company has executed impressibly in mobile and is one of the world’s top mobile companies.

Top of the charts

Most obviously, with now more than 1.12 billion active mobile users, Facebook is dominating the app charts, as noted by App Annie. Four of the top 10 apps on the Apple iOS App Store and Google Play most-downloaded charts in October were Facebook-owned apps: Facebook Messenger (no. 1), Facebook itself (no. 2), Instagram (no. 4), and WhatsApp (no. 6).

Facebook’s overall user base is still growing, though mainly in developing markets, and mainly on mobile. In more established markets, Facebook’s acquisitions of WhatsApp and Instagram will help the company combat the apparent exodus in younger users.
