#7 (of 12) reasons to love digi.me – we help you know your friends better!

Coming to the end of the year, we all get very nostalgic looking back on the months gone -but as you use digi.me to flashback through your year, did you ever consider you can also use it to see how well you actually know your friends?

Once again, that’s something that digi.me is really good for – and so for the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me – greater insight about my online community!

Yes, you might think you know your friends – particularly those who you are, perhaps, related to, or see often in real life – but onlife life can be a mysterious and weird thing, and the quiet ones IRL can be quite the opposite from the other side of a screen.

But how would you know this? Once again, our super widgets are the way. We have both a most active one and a most influential one – use across all your accounts or just one at a time to see who’s got the most followers or interacts with you most.

Both cycle through the top few results when they’re sitting prettily on your desktop. Clicking on the most influential opens up the bio information of, for eg, twitter top bods, giving you follower counts and any other information shared such as location.

With most active, which is more personal, clicking on the picture opens the most recent posts and pictures of yours that the pictured person has liked or commented on.

As with many of our coolest features, this is for premium users only – but this could quickly and easily be you, as digi.me is only a download away and half price for all of December – get it now!

 

50% off digi.me: Collected photo fun is the #6 (of 12) reasons to love our app!

digi.me’s vision has always been that gathering all of your personal data in one place makes sense for so many reasons including privacy and control – but having all your pictures from across your social media together is a huge deal as well.

So, on the sixth day of Christmas, my true love brought to me – all my photos in one place!

Yes, as well as the many and varied benefits that having digi.me brings to your life (you have read all the blogs above, yes? Good, good!) – one that is sometimes overlooked because there are JUST SO MANY COOL THINGS TO TELL YOU ABOUT is the gift of having a complete gallery of your life that you can navigate and organise as you want.

If you’re anything like most people (and sadly, as individual as we all think we are, we do end up displaying herd qualities), then you use different networks for different reasons. Maybe the audience is niche, maybe you like to show off different sides of your personality, maybe you’re just trying to win at them all and adapting accordingly – who knows?

But we digress. So Facebook ends up being your cute and family pictures, for example, Twitter is for silly things you see, pictures of cats and random political opinions (pictures optional), while Instagram is for showing off those beautiful meals you cook once in a blue moon and those moody weather shots you took on a rain-soaked walk.

All of them are elements of you, but none are the whole – until you put them together. So now you can see all the shots you took on any given day – of anything, from anywhere – on your computer in your private digi.me library, together for the first time.

You can search by albums under the pictures tab, or by a single date or chosen date range – and you can do this all in one place.

Enjoy reliving special days, special people and moments in time you had forgotten – all with their original likes and comments to put them in context.

If you want to gather them all together for any reason, you can even export them together as a PDF or to Evernote – and they’ll still retain those all-important interactions.

Really, if you love your life enough to chronicle and share it, then you need to be backing up these pictures and giving them a new lease of life with digi.me.

With a host of cool features including flashback and Collections, we know you’ll love our app – and digi.me is 50% off for the whole of December, so what are you waiting for?

Go on, download now and see just what we mean.

 

 

50% off digi.me: #2 (of 12) reasons to love us – universal search!

Posting different parts of our lives to the different social networks and friends that cater for them can be lots of fun – but a huge pain when it comes to trying to find an elusive post or picture, right?

So, on the second day of Christmas my true love brought for me – universal search!

Yes, among the dozens of clever things you can do with digi.me, universal search is undoubtedly one of the cleverest.

So what do we mean by universal? Simply that you can search across all networks. Need to know if you wore your favourite Christmas dress to a party last year? What present you bought for your loved one (maybe even who your loved one was at that point?) digi.me can help. Simply fire up the app, hit the magnifying glass search icon in the top left and away you go.

You can narrow your search down if you’ve got a good idea about where what you are looking for might be found, or you can search everywhere if you don’t.

And not only will digi.me quickly and speedily find what you’re looking for from all your backed up accounts and the entire date range that your personal library spans, but we’ll then give you options of what you can do with that information.

Of course, you can just delight in the fact that you don’t need a new Christmas jumper as no pictures of last year’s exist (as if!), but you can also add your long-forgotten post to an existing collection of content, or create a new one (both exciting premium features). And you can even export it as a PDF or to Evernote – so many choices, so many options, it’s like Christmas has come early (hoho!).

And if that doesn’t sound tempting enough, digi.me premium also offers the chance to add up to 20 accounts.

Sound tantalisingly tempting? Then head over to our download page to bag your Christmas bargain now!

Yes, no dodgy candle or bath products from the big man in red this year, the gift of digi.me is quite literally the gift that keeps on giving, combining posts from all your key social networks in one place to search, explore and enjoy for as long as you want!

Offering the option now to store all the important posts and pictures that make up the sum of the things you care about most, next year will see the change to add details such as finance, health and purchasing to your library which you can exchange with businesses of your choice for services, offers or rewards.

And the best bit? For this month we are offering our premium digi.me product – that’s the one with all the best bits we offer in – for 50pc off a year’s subscription, so $3.49 instead of $6.99. It was just what you asked for on your list, right? (We know you make a list, even if it’s just in your head)

So whether it’s Father Christmas’s present to you (which are always the best ones), or for someone who you love enough to give a gift that does something brilliant and doesn’t just sit on a shelf gathering dust, here’s the lowdown on why you should be jumping all over this offer.

Digi.me is completely private and all information is held on your computer. We never see it, it’s just for you to enjoy, use and share as you wish.

We support major networks including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, with more coming all the time.

You can search across all platforms, gaining new insight into yourself and your life, create collections of favourite events or people (Christmases past, anyone?) and export them as PDFs to share or just to keep as hard copies.

More you say? Well, how about a widget-based front page, which offers you the chance to slice and dice your data how YOU want – such as most popular posts, most active friends and most influential followers. Even better – create your own, with our easy three-step guide.

We can’t guarantee the turkey will defrost in time, that your favourite Bond film will be on the telly or that you’ve been good enough for a visit from Santa – but we can guarantee that your data is held securely on your computer so you can do more with it.

Oh, and if you forget to get a present until Christmas Eve? It’s a download, with you in seconds. Really, if digi.me could cook it would have Christmas totally covered. Enjoy!

Your Digital Footprint Revealed

Each person is unique like the facets of a diamond as a result your digital footprint online is also unique to you but how do you get to see those unique aspects of your digital footprint?  What patterns and relationships online are unique and valuable to you and how do you identify them in among the reset of the social media noise?

We here at digi.me understand that everyone is unique and we haDigi.me Puts You in Control of Your Social Media Datave been working on a range of different ways for you to interact with your social media networks.  Unlike when you go onto Facebook and view your timeline (or rather what Facebook allows you to see on your timeline) we show you everything you have posted in chronological order.  You can search, save and share that data.  You also have the ability to analyse your content and find your closest connections based on who you interact with most often.  You also get to see the combination of your social media updates from all of your different networks in one place.

If you are wondering who you haven’t been in touch with for a while you can even analyse an older set of updates and see who you might like to reconnect with by starting a conversation with them.  You can find out what your all time top photo’s were and even find out what days of the week you do post most of your social media updates on.

With our Flashback feature you can see what you were up to this time last year across all your social networks, or even look back beyond last year to the ones before that to see what you were up to then. You may be fascinated what memories and moments you come across.

Quite simply digi.me is a tool that opens up social networks on a personal level giving you that granular insight into those things that are most important to you.  If you think there is a feature missing or that you would like all you need to do is tell us and we will look into adding this in a future update.  

 

Retrieving Your Personal Information

From time to time we all think about leaving platforms like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  However before we leave we want to make sure we aren’t losing anything in the process but how do we go about doing that?  This article will run through some simple but effective approaches to help you capture and retrieve as much of your personal information as possible. 

Facebook

When it comes to retrieving your Facebook data there are a few different ways to get your data.  Unfortunately Facebook don’t make it easy to get a copy of everything you have ever put up there and if you want everything you will need to put in a personal data request and from what we hear that can take months for a response.  Officially if you are based in Europe they should be responding within 40 days to your request however history already shows this hasn’t been the case in the past.

In the meantime what you can do to retrieve a lot of your personal data is download digi.me and connect to Facebook to synchronize and retrieve the majority of your personal data.  This will provide you with your wall posts and images direct to your computer and you can export these into an easy to use PDF. To gain access to our private messages you will need to “download a copy of your Facebook Data” which you will find on Facebook under settings. The list of what you will get with this download can be found here and it does include your private messages.

Twitter

Again with Twitter you can use digi.me to automatically download your tweets as you go which will save you time and effort having to regularly remember to download your archive to keep up with your latest twitter updates.  As Twitter limits the amount of time you can go back historically we recommend that you also download your Twitter archive so that you have all your really old Twitter content.  That way you will have all your Twitter updates that you have ever created to date and all the ones you generate in from when you start using digi.me onwards will also be captured.  There are some very comprehensive instructions from Twitter on how retrieve your Tweet archive here.

LinkedIN

Digi.me also works with LinkedIN to help you keep copies of your most recent interactions on the social network.   However you may also wish to put in a request to gain access to every update you have ever made on LinkedIN through their access request page.  They do collect information about your search history and much more. You will be surprised just what this social network really knows about you and your data.

The other useful feature that you may wish to take advantage of within LinkedIN is the ability to export your profile as a PDF.  It is a great starting point for putting together your CV and is a fairly well hidden feature.  There is a little down arrow next to “View Profile As” when you are on your profile page. Click on the arrow and you will find a drop down with a few different options including the option to “Save to PDF”.

What is your Wimbledon Tennis Pose?

The Wimbledon tennis season for 2015 is well underway and no matter who you are supporting it is good to have fun in the sun.

And as a bonus bit of fun, leave a comment for us telling us who you think will be in the men’s and women’s finals.

Friday Fun: Muddy Boots

Every time it comes round to things like the Glastonbury Festival in England it rains! Tents get flooded and everyone gets out their muddy boots.  This year is looking like it may follow suit!

We thought it might be fun for everyone to share their muddy boots pictures from  Glastonbury any any other fun festivals that they have attended this year and in previous years using the hashtag #muddyboots

If you can’t make it this year you can still take part, just download digi.me and search for glastonbury and save those muddy boots pictures from last year.  It’s amazing how fun and different muddy boots can be from different festivals and even different countries. Let’s see what fun ones turn up! We’ll retweet and share our favourites!

How to Make Most of Festival Photo’s

Were you at a festival this weekend or plan to be at some point over the summer, then this article is just what you need.  This articles shares some of our top tips for how you can use your festival photo’s from this year and past years in creative and fun ways.

First of all you need to grab a copy of all your festival photo’s.  You can do that in a few different ways, grab them from your phone, camera etc directly or if you have shared them online and aren’t sure where you had them originally that’s fine. Download digi.me, sync your social media accounts and then do a search or two to find the pictures you are after.  You may need to do a date range search or you may just need to search for the name of the festival. It depends what you put in the description when you uploaded the pics.

Once you have the copy of your pictures you can start doing all sorts of things with them.

  • You could make a photo collage with them and put it in a frame.
  • Make a photo book of your festival highlights to leave on the coffee table for when friends come round.
  • Turn your pics into a photo clock with a picture for each hour of the day.
  • Put all your photo’s into a digital photo frame and see those festival moments all summer long.
  • Set your festival photo’s folder as your screensaver or screen background and see those special moments unfold.
  • Create a video of your festival photo’s and share it with your friends on social media.

Do you have other ideas of what you could do with your festival pictures! Share them with us and we’ll add them to our list!
