Facebook Promoted Posts Images Checker

One disturbing thing about Facebook promoted / boosted posts is that you can't have too much text on the associated image. I get the idea behind that (to avoid promotional banners) but that also prevents me from using useful annotated screenshots too!

Before promoting any post at Facebook, run your featured images using that tool to make sure you are safe!

Education And The Cloud: Fad, Or Benefit-Rich Phenomenon?

Everyone seems to be raving about the benefits of cloud computing. It saves hard drive space, it allows users to access their needed files from anywhere and at any time, and it can offer seamless compatibility across platforms and devices.
