Telcommuting is fast on the rise, according to The New York Times. While many assume teleworkers are primarily women with children or people working for themselves, the reality is different:

The desire to telecommute and the number of companies offering that ability is also rising:

Know Your Desk Lamp Lighting Options For Increased Efficiency

Task lighting is focused illumination, providing a beam of light onto a work surface. The presence of focused lighting on the area that you are working on helps to effectively and comfortably perform a particular task at hand. Task lighting is a very important aspect of any room, particularly a study or home office. A few examples of specific task lighting applications include writing, reading, using a computer, and craftwork.

It is not enough to use the same amount of light across an entire room, particularly in a work space. This is why task lighting, such as a desk lamp, is necessary. A good desk lamp is important in any work environment or home office, especially when working with a computer or laptop as viewing the monitor will require less light than reading paper materials.

When choosing a desk lamp, you need to consider both design compatibility with your room’s interior décor and the lamp’s ability to provide the amount of lighting you need. Familiarize yourself with the different options available for you in terms of light source and features so you are able to select the best desk lamp for your work space.

Getting Clued Up On The Cloud: Many UK Small Businesses Admit Limited Knowledge On The Cloud

In recent Hollywood comedy ‘Sex Tape’, Jason Segal can be heard yelling that ‘nobody understands the cloud.’ You’d be forgiven for suspecting that this was an exaggeration to cover up his character’s ignorance, but in fact, it seems as though this farcical film based on poor Cloud management actually highlights a very real problem.

A recent survey suggests that 57 per cent of small business executives have admitted that they aren’t entirely sure how the Cloud works. And let’s face it - it’s hardly surprising that, with a name like the Cloud, people’s impression and knowledge of the intangible service is just a little hazy. But shouldn’t business executives know better?

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!

But there's nothing really you can do about that: The rule is the rule. What we can do is to avoid rejections by providing an image that complies with Facebook editorial terms of service.

This tool will help you with that: Facebook Image Text Detection Tool

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