  • Message to Facebook – stop letting scammers get away with it!

    Posted on December 2, 2016

    I recently wrote about a fake Facebook page named ‘Team Advert’* that was sharing posts by other Facebook pages and threatening to have the pages unpublished unless their owners ‘confirmed’ their identity by entering their username, password, and credit card number. I reported the page to Facebook and had it shut down. I then went […]

  • From ashes to caches: where will your internet output go when you die?

    Posted on December 1, 2016

    Popular TV programmes like BBC’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ have encouraged many people to research their ancestry. Some might pay a professional to do it for them, or they may end up sifting through archived newspapers, birth and death records, and other physically printed media from centuries ago to gain clues on what […]

  • Three utterly ridiculous examples of online ‘vandalism’

    Posted on November 30, 2016

    With the internet being largely unregulated and anybody able to add to it, it means that a lot of what appears on it should not necessarily be taken as the truth. We see this regularly on social media sites like Facebook, where a lot of the memes and ‘news’ items that crop up should leave […]

  • Has the internet killed satire?

    Posted on November 25, 2016

    I love a good bit of satire. Whether it’s old episodes of Spitting Image, Aristophanes’ ‘The Frogs’ or a bit of the Daily Mash – nothing beats good satire. The problem is, does satire remain as satire when too many people believe it? For instance, the spoof news website BFN was originally set up with […]

  • So you think you don’t need a website?

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

  • What happens online stays online

    Posted on March 11, 2016

    You may have heard the phrase ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ at some point in your life. The phrase refers to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world, which is also known as Sin City. The notion that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas means that you’re guaranteed anonymity by the […]

  • Students create algorithm to combat Facebook fake news story problem

    Posted on November 22, 2016

    Social networking phenomenon Facebook has recently been the subject of a lot of criticism as it has, perhaps unknowingly, been promoting a large number of fake or misleading stories. Although Facebook has yet to come up

    Search giant Google has recently introduced a new feature that will inform users whether or not the shop, bar or other amenity they are searching for is busy in real time. The company has added a

  • How did Google’s predictions go this weekend?

    Posted on November 21, 2016

    It’s time once again to look at the Google Trends data we went over last week and see whether the search engine has continued the pattern we have observed of search volumes hinting at future real world outcomes. We put sports to one side last week and looked at the two big Saturday night reality […]

  • Can Google continue its impressive weekend prediction streak?

    Posted on November 18, 2016

    As we saw earlier this week, Google Trends came up with some strikingly accurate predictions to do with TV and sports events that took place last weekend, correctly identifying the winner of the England v Scotland game, the eliminated X Factor contestant, and a strong performance from an outsider in the Brazilian Grand Prix. In […]

  • Brew Cards Infographic, updated rules

    Posted on October 22, 2014

    Two years ago we produced our first ‘brew cards’ infographic, to help explain the complex rules we have here at Engage Web for brew making in the office. Over time our rules have evolved and grown, partly to make the selection process more exciting and partly to counter for the rule-bending shown by our project […]

  • The growing importance of infographics

    Posted on August 30, 2013

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous. A well-designed infographic, however, can set companies apart from their competitors and should also enhance brand awareness. So many […]

    As a result of the many different ways people can engage with your website we decided to produce this (slightly disturbing) infographic showing how your website can stimulate the ‘share cortex’ of the brain. Social media is such an important part of Internet marketing these days you need to take advantage of it to make […]

    Earlier this month, some of the members from BNI Hooton, a local networking group of which Engage Web is a part, went for a friendly karting session. Now, when I say ‘friendly’, there was obviously some competitive edge to it. Indeed, when the instructor stated there was to be no ‘bumping’, the question of ‘what […]
