Separating spotify from Facebook and moving playlists from one account to another

Now that spotify no longer REQUIRES a facebook login, how do you go about separating them?  I really needed to do this for a lot of different reasons. One, I use georgiawebgurl for all of my social media except for Facebook. I don’t mind connecting twitter, pinterest, etc. together but I don’t want them all connected to my personal Facebook space. One caveat: this only ...

..so, how do you *do* twitter? Advice & thoughts on getting started with twitter

Question of the day: …so, how do you *do* twitter? It seems different than fb. Any words of wisdom? A:Twitter is different from facebook for me.Twitter is a very dynamic sharing, learning, and network tool. Facebook can be that, too, but it’s more a mashup and convulated (imho). So how do I do it?

Updated 10/19: Note: While this worked for a while, it no longer seems to, what is still workingis manually creating a list of all friends and just read that.

Gmail: search & limit by date, exclude google buzz & more

If you’ve ever tried to search through 300 (or egads – 3000+) GMail emails, then you know how challenging the “never delete” idea is. Sorting is not really part of the GMail world (there is some sorting, but it rather limited). I usually build the search in the search box (similar to oldschool command line searching). (If you prefer to use an easy guided search ...

Tracking your profile and who unfriends you on Facebook – mostly scams

Stalker Tracker and Profile Tracker (Facebook apps? apps might be too generous) are just scammy products; there is not any app that can show you who has viewed your profile. Facebook probably knows, but you don’t. Pages can see how many views and other basic website statistics; individual personal accounts currently display no statistical information (at this point – although it is bound to be ...

Controlling twitter notifications to your phone

Go to Settings>Mobile Text message notifications:Twitter will send alerts to your phone, depending on your settings.
