HTML5: The New Style in Development

HTML5: The New Style in DevelopmentThe power and functionality of the internet is changing today as technology moves forward and the old becomes the new. Giants like Adobe announced in November 2011 that they will discontinue development of Flash for mobile devices in efforts to develop tools utilizing HTML5. HTML5 is still under development and most of the web’s design talent is already converting over. The various problems with universal browser support exists, but most, if not all, are HTML5 ready.

The semantics of HTML5 helps maintain structure and integrates design concepts such as the over 10,000 <divs> when developing. This also includes the new <video>, <audio> and <canvas> elements, as well as the integration of scalable vector graphics (SVG) content that replaces the use of the generic <object> tags. In addition, new elements, such as <header> and <nav>, are designed to enrich the semantic content of documents.

 

 


Conversion to HTML5 will lead to a good approach towards search engine optimization (SEO) with your site or WordPress blog. Better site indexing and search results in engines such as Google and Yahoo with the new <div> and <footer> tags will help sustain a better overall approach to SEO.

As more web users turn to mobile technology for their internet needs, HTML5 will be a key building block for further interactivity that should supercharge both user experience and marketing innovation.

The cross-platform accessibility factor of HTML5 on devices built with Android, iOS, and Blackberry makes developing more apps very appealing.

With the current advent of a more flawless application development environment across multiple platforms the HTML5 revolution is here to stay.

“No one will be using Flash. The world is moving to HTML5.” – Steve Jobs

Cases Solved By Using Facebook

This infographic shows how Facebook is being used in criminal and legal investigations; whether it is being used to solve crimes, or whether it is cause for the crime itself.

In 2010, 7,454 calls from police were related to social media. Facebook’s ability to monitor its users means that crimes are often solved by monitoring what is posted. For example, a man used Facebook to try and hire a hit-man to kill a woman who accused him of rape; he now faces 11-22 years in prison. A woman decapitated a mouse and put a video of it up on Facebook was found guilty and reprimanded accordingly.

Needless to say, Facebook has also exacerbated the instances of crime.

Your personality on social media

Who are you – really? You could be an OCEAN or a CANOE but apparently not both at the same time. These are a couple of the classifications of personality according to the Five Factor Model. Long before that there was the Myers Briggs which tended to classify personalities as ENTP, ISTJ and more. It is thought that five factors form the framework for describing all human personality types – animal types being something entirely different. Generally an individual’s personality type was extrapolated from answers on questionnaires. The prevailing wisdom used to be that the individual is the best judge of his own personality. But in the age of social media, these same personality traits could be gleaned from a person’s social media posts. If indeed your personality is a combination of your emotions, attitudes and behavior patterns then it’s all there on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media pages.

With social media, the data is thought to be more objective than your responses on a questionnaire. When you post something on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or other social media sites, you aren’t necessarily giving much thought to it. The response you give in a Tweet could be almost a reflex action on your part. On the other hand, when you are sitting in a room, answering questions about your personality, you tend to reflect your assessment of yourself rather than your actual behaviors. On the other hand, every pin on Pinterest, every emoticon, every like on Facebook, every follow and friend request, tells a little bit about you, whether you’re aware of it or not. Researchers at a university in China recently conducted a study using Renren, which is the Chinese equivalent of Facebook, and found correlations between the personality types as measured by questionnaires, and the types extrapolated from social media posts. And if in hierarchical order you are discovered to be Open, Conscientious, Extraverted, Agreeable and Neurotic, you could be an OCEAN – else just rearrange the letters.
