  • Arguing on Facebook: is it worth it?

    Posted on February 23, 2017

    The internet is an odd medium in the sense that it allows anybody to air their opinions, without the fear of face-to-face confrontation or reprisals. Where once you would have risked getting punched or, at the very least, being given a

  • When will everybody be on the internet?

    Posted on February 22, 2017

    In the developed world, the internet is something the vast majority of us use every day, but how far away are we from a world where everybody at least has access to an internet connection?

  • 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

    Posted on February 17, 2017

    Yesterday, we wrote about Facebook’s latest plan to make videos on your news feed auto-play with sound. It’s a move that Facebook claims offers internet users what they have “come to expect” when they watch a video online, but do you agree? Personally, I find auto-playing videos hugely irritating, with or without sound. My way […]

  • 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.

  • 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 […]

  • BNI Hooton goes karting

    Posted on July 22, 2016

    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 […]
