In their latest issue, National Geographic showed readers how smokejumpers fight wildfires in the Alaskan forest, with images by photographer Mark Thiessen. Firefighting photos is a specialty for Mark; he’s been doing it for 25 years, and shooting for NatGeo for 29. We talked to him about his first published news…Read more...

How to Slide Into Someone's DMs Without Being a Creep

The internet has given us unprecedented access to everyone. Not only can we see what our exes are up to on multiple social networking platforms, but we are now (for better or worse) privy to the passing thoughts, candid photos, and incoherent ramblings of our favorite celebrities and personalities. We can also slide…Read more...

Celebrate Beautiful Microcosms With the Miniworlds Subreddit

Each subforum on Reddit is a microcosm. Unlike the chaos of a Twitter or Facebook feed, a subreddit sticks to one format or topic. It has its own rules, customs, and in-jokes. And on r/Miniworlds, every post is a microcosm too. Each r/Miniworlds post is a photo of a tiny scene that looks like a whole world. Some are…Read more...

Effective Content Marketing: 8 Ways to Get Your Content Noticed

Do you know what it takes for a business to succeed in today’s market place? Is it repeated advertisements telling customers to buy your products? Definitely not!

How to Spot an AI-Generated Photo

The first time I explained to my son, as a preschooler, that cartoon characters were not really real but drawn and animated on a computer, it blew his mind. How could something that looked so realistic actually be fake? I think I now know how he felt; lately, the more I learn about AI-generated photos, the more my…Read more...

A Friendly Reminder That a Lot of Instagram Health Advice Is Garbage

There’s bullshit health advice everywhere, but you’d hope that when you follow someone on Insta who looks legit—lots of followers, blue checkmark, solid-looking advice on a blog—you’d get the good stuff. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of crap out there. Read more...

Finding great artwork for your next blog post or meme can be a challenge.

How Social Media Helps Students Study

Believe it or not, you can actually use social media in studying. In fact, based on Social Learning Theory, we learn best when we interact with people. This is because we are social creatures and we tend to perform the best when there are people around us. And that includes studying. Once you get serious about your education, you then realize that you must take the hand of as many resources as you can.  Studies reveal that more and more students, like yourself, believe that the technology they u...

How to Change Ads on Instagram

On my Instagram feed, I see a lot of targeted ads for face masks and other anti-aging skincare products—and I’ll admit, I regularly shop for both.

The Best Instagram Filter Can Only Be Accessed In Stories

At the risk of angering Jameela Jamil, I enjoy a good filter. Most Instagram filters, however, are crap, and either wash you out completely or make you look extremely, well, filtered. A good filter subtly smooths out an image, and maybe brightens it slightly. Like a good concealer, it doesn’t do much; it does just…Read more...

Why Social Media is Dying a Slow Death

I remember when I was a young whippersnapper of a kid — no place to be and no dependents to take care of. I was responsible, trustworthy, and intelligent enough to work my way to a comfortable place in whatever job I held at the time. And I was balanced enough to separate work from play and appreciate the benefits of both. I was social enough always to have the choice to accept or turn down plans on my own timeline. If social media had been around, would I have spent hours of my day liking, retw...

iOS: If you’ve ever taken an R-rated picture on your phone, odds are good that you know it exists somewhere in your photo library. I’m pretty forgetful, but I know I’d remember that fact.

How to Take a Flattering Picture of Someone When They Hand You Their Phone

This seems like it should be basic knowledge, but I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve asked someone to take my picture, handed them a phone, and then stood there frozen as they turn it towards me...and nothing happens. Are they taking a picture? Are they looking through my email? What’s going on over there?…Read more...

How to Organize Photos by Faces in iOS

Diversify Your Stock Photos With Broadly's Gender Spectrum Collection

Stock photos tend to lag behind the culture. They fill business photos with just men, or under-represent minorities, or only show people filling outdated cultural roles. It’s an issue we run into a lot at Lifehacker, where we have to illustrate upwards of 15 posts every day on a limited photo budget, and want to…Read more...

It's Time to Unfollow Your Favorite Brands on Instagram

Instagram launched Checkout on Instagram this week, which makes it possible for users to buy products without leaving the app (before, users could click on a product, and would be directed to the retailer’s website to complete the purchase).

Buy Your Kid's Awkward School Picture

Year after year, my son tends to knock school Picture Day out of the park with a confident stance and natural smile. Except for one year when he was two and-a half and in daycare.

Ask the Salty Waitress: Why won't the chef let me take a picture of my food?

Dear Salty: I was in New York City recently and dined at one of those expensive, four-star sushi restaurants. It’s my once-a-year splurge. The reservation was hard to secure, and I was really excited to sit at the bar and experience the omakase menu from the renowned sushi chef. Read more...

UI/UX Design for Users with Dyslexia

As of the third quarter of 2018, Google Play had 2,100,000 apps and the Apple App Store reached the milestone of 2,000,000 apps.
