Create a New Tumblr Account. You may think that Tumblr is just like any other social media website. Well, you are definitely going to change your mind after using it.

With millions of both visitors and actual users, Tumblr is the world’s most multimedia-interactive content sharing website.

You can follow other users, share what other people post, and unlike Facebook and flickr you don’t need to download pictures or videos you want to blog – just click “re-blog”… how easy is that? By using the “re-blog” button, you can share somebody else’s post so everyone can see it. You can follow other people’s blogs and people can re-blog your posts as well, and the number of re-blogs shows how important or “popular” you are in the Tumblr world. You can also make your blogs private, if you’re so inclined.

To use Tumblr, you can go to the website from your personal computer or even use the app on your mobile device.

If you’re accustomed to Facebook, Tumblr may seem a bit messy at first glance and you may think that it looks overly complicated, but I guarantee that after signing up for your account you are definitely going to change your mind.

Get ready to a totally new experience that is different from any website you have ever used before. You still can visit other people’s blogs on Tumblr without signing up for an account of your own, but to blog yourself you will need to create an account. As you will see in this easy tutorial, setting up your new Tumblr account is simple and only takes a few minutes. Did I mention it’s free?

So let’s get started! Create a New Tumblr Account

1) First, you will need to go to your browser’s address bar or Google search and type: “www.tumblr.com”  :

The first thing you will see after typing the Tumblr URL and reaching the Tumblr home page is the sign up form.

2) All you need to do now is fill in the form by entering your email address, a new password (make sure to make it strong enough by using more than eight characters, preferably a combination of upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers and special characters), and then add your desired username.

Tumblr may ask you to choose from some available usernames; you still can use your own username, as long as it isn’t taken by anyone else. Be creative and come up with something unique!

When you’re finished with that, click “sign up“, and the screen below will appear.

4) Click “Next” and a new screen will pop up to make sure that you are not a “robot“. Just click inside the circle to prove that you’re human.

Create Your LinkedIn Account

Create Your LinkedIn Account. What is LinkedIn? And why should you join it? Like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., LinkedIn is a social network, but unlike these other social networks, LinkedIn has its own unique direction as a business social network. In fact, it is the world’s largest online social network that is dedicated to business and is used by millions of professionals for professional purposes.

People use LinkedIn every day to look for new companies, apply for jobs, network and join groups. So if you are looking for a job, searching for employees or trying to build your professional contacts, being on LinkedIn is a must.

Create Your LinkedIn Account

To get access to all of its benefits, you will first have to create your LinkedIn account. Creating a new account is free and very easy to do. First, navigate to the LinkedIn homepage at www.linkedin.com. You can also search for LinkedIn in Google.

In the middle of the page, there is a section that says, “Get started – it’s free“.

Go ahead and fill in the required information: enter your first name, last name, email address, and then select your LinkedIn account password. It’s a good idea to add a number and/or special character to your password to make sure that it is strong enough. Then click the “Join now” button.

Once you do that, you will be taken to another screen where LinkedIn will ask for your country and postal code, which is “optional“. Providing this information allows you to connect with companies and people in your area.

After clicking “Next“, you will select whether or not you are a student, enter your school or college name, your start year, expected year of graduation, and select whether you are over 18 year of age.

Finally click the “Create your profile” button in the bottom left-hand corner of the page.

Next, you will have to choose your primary purpose for using LinkedIn. Just for the purposes of illustration, I’ve selected “Find a job”, but you can select anything that applies to you, even if you’re not sure.

On the following screen, you will have the option to add your email so that LinkedIn can look at your contacts in Gmail. You can skip this step if you want, but it is a convenient way to automatically add some LinkedIn contacts.

The next step is confirming your email address; just click the “Go to my inbox” button:

After that, you can choose some companies where you might want to work. You can select them all if you want to, or if you don’t want to choose any of them you can click “skip“.

Now you can choose whether you want to download the LinkedIn mobile app. If you do, you will have to choose your country and enter your phone number; if not, you can click the “skip” button (you can always download it later if you change your mind).

Finally, you will be taken to your personal LinkedIn page, where you can start building your profile.

You can add your personal photo, your current job position, your educational background, and any other personal information you like; just keep walking through the blue screens and add the desired information one field at a time.

Personally, I think everybody should be on LinkedIn, whether you are a student, a job seeker, a business owner, or even just looking for potential contacts in your field for networking purposes, you can find what you are looking for here on LinkedIn.

How to Make a Google Account in Three Easy Steps

210{icon} {views}

Make a Google Account. It’s a bit pointless to talk about Google search and its fame (as far as I’m concerned, they control the world), but are you aware of all the different services offered by Google? You have probably heard about Google search engine; we all use it, and the word “Google” is even used as a verb to mean “search the internet”. But what about their other services? I was shocked when I told my friend that I would send him an email from my Gmail account, and he didn’t know what Gmail was! So, for my friend and anyone out there who hasn’t heard of Gmail or needs a little help getting their Google account set up, this article will explain everything you need to know.

Gmail is Google’s email service which you can use to send or receive emails, just like any other mailing service you might have used before, like Yahoo or Outlook. Having a Gmail account also gives you access to tons of other Google services, like Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google +, and many others. So, let’s find out how to create a new Google account.

First step: Going to the Gmail website

Go to the Gmail website by typing in your browser’s address bar: mail.google.com/, or simply by searching for Gmail in Google search. After navigating to the website, you will see the following page:

Second step: Creating an account

The next step is to click on “Create account” at the bottom of the page. This will lead you to the following screen:

This screen is divided into two parts; the upper part asks for your personal information, including your first and last name, a username (this will be your Gmail email address), a good password, your birthday, your gender and your mobile phone number.

When you choose your username, you have to create a unique one or choose from the suggested usernames displayed by Google. Note that when selecting your password, try to choose a mixture of capital and lowercase letters, as well as numbers and special characters so it is as strong as possible.

It should be easy for you to remember, but hard for other people to guess (not your pet’s name, for example). Also, when you confirm your password don’t copy and paste it; type it again just in case you made a mistake typing it the first time. In the mobile phone box, make sure to choose your country if Google doesn’t set it by default.

The second part of this page is to verify that you’re not a robot. For security reasons, Google will ask you to enter some letters or numbers that appear in a picture to make sure you are a real person. You have two alternatives to this step: the first one is to listen to a voice recording and write the code that you have heard, and the second is to skip this step by checking the box above the picture and instead receive a text message for verification on your mobile phone.

After you prove that you’re human, mark the checkbox that says, “I agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy policy”. Then click “Next step”.

Third step: Getting into your account

Now it’s time to congratulate you on your new Google account, because in this step you will see the Google welcome screen.

On this page, click on “Continue to Gmail”, and on the next page Google will show you a small presentation about how to use it. You can skip this slideshow but it’s helpful and worth reading if you’re new to Gmail. For more tips and advice, Google will send you three messages by default. Your email is ready to use right now, but if you want to personalize it, you can go to your profile settings and add more information to you Gmail account, including a profile picture that will appear for all your contacts. It’s also worth mentioning that Google provides you with 15 GB of free space in your inbox, so you might never have to delete an email if you don’t want to.

Ready to make a Google account of your very own? Sign up for a new one now; it’s quick, easy and free.

People all around the nation are rediscovering and loving MySpace.

Having a MySpace account offers you a lot of opportunities to share your content with your friends whether it is a song, a video and even your own compositions, for free! Some of you may remember when MySpace said it was “all about the music”, but it wasn’t. That’s changed; now on MySpace you can add friends, and people would add you too to their friends list, as a song writer, a musician, an actor or for any other talent you may have. MySpace is the perfect place for you where you can build your fan base.

How to Create a MySpace Account

While signing up for MySpace, you can choose to sign up as a musician, in which case you will you have to create a music account.

You can also sign up as a regular person (if you had an old MySpace account and abandoned it without deleting, it’s still there but has been updated to fit the current site’s theme).

To sign up regularly, you will have to visit the MySpace home page by typing the MySpace URL in your browser’s address bar, or searching for MySpace on Google:

Then you are going to choose “Sign up”:

MySpace will give you the option to sign up with one of your existing social media accounts like Facebook, Twitter or email.

Since the Facebook and Twitter options will sign you up automatically, we’ll continue using the email address option. After this step, you will be taken to a page asking you to fill your personal information in the form.

Enter your full first and last name, then choose your username, enter your email, select your gender, and create a new password (don’t forget to make it strong and easy for you to remember). Then set your date of birth, and finally click “Next” to the sentence that says that you have read and accepted the terms of use and consent to the privacy policy, then click “Create account”.

Once you do that you will be taken to this screen:

Which asks you to choose, “what you are all about?” You can choose between multiple options, such as a member, musician, designer, etc.

After that, you will be taken to your profile page. Keep in mind that you can make your MySpace page public so everybody can see it, or you can make it private to be seen only by you and friends; you can also choose if you would like to allow people to add you to their friends list or not.

Well that’s it! You’re done creating your new MySpace account, and now you can be a part of this network of millions of musicians, artists and talented people from all around the world. You can make new friends, interact with them and share your content with the entire world, and who knows? You might even become famous on MySpace. Good luck and have fun!
