Top 6 Social Media Trends of 2021
There is an interesting article on socialmediatoday.com about the top Social Media Trends of 2021.
I’ve included a snippet of two facts I found particularly interesting. For the full article, the Link is here
Changing Chrome’s Tabs on Your Phone
If you click the number, all the tabs open on top of each other flowing down with the title bars showing.
There is a new view available. Open tabs can be shown in a grid view (as shown in this image).
Here is how In Chrome; both Android and iPhone
- Type chrome:flags into the Chrome address bar on your phone
- Type tab grid into the search box at the top of the screen that comes up.
- Tap the box beneath “Tab Grid Layout” and change it to “Enabled.”
- If you have one, Tap the Relaunch button at the bottom of the screen. Otherwise, open and close Chrome a couple of times,
When you next open Chrome and tap the number you’ll have the Grid view
Thanks to Pete Van Opens who sent this follow up from the Zoom tip in the last issue
“As you know, Zoom and Teams allow you to set virtual backgrounds. I’ve taken a photo of our blank wall and uploaded that to use as a virtual background. No more worrying about people walking in behind you or what you forgot to clean up, or the sun being too bright, or not bright enough. I have also put the company logo on it.”
(Debbie here. I have been using a picture I took at Cinque Terre (Italy). Now that I think of it – it’s too busy and a blank or plain background IS much better.

A Domestic Story
We have been a loyal Palmolive dish soap customer for years. With the last bottle purchased (their regular 1.3 litre size), I noticed it was unusually watery, worse than the low priced brands. I thought this cannot be right and asked my husband what he thought of it. Steve said “it’s the heat. It’s making the liquid thin out” “No”, I replied, “it is just too watery”. I decided to telephone Johnson & Johnson about it. They had just lost a long-time customer and thought they should know.
What do you think? Steve was wrong. I was vindicated.
Their customer service told me they recently changed the formula and thanked me for the feedback. It was important to them. Yes, I was given a coupon but my actions were not focused on that.
Is there a moral to this story? I’m not sure. How sick are you about all the price increases or quantity decreases we’ve experienced rapidly in the things we buy? In this instance Johnson & Johnson gave themselves a price increase by watering down their product.
If you feel something is not right with a product you purchased; or you want to voice a problem with a price/quantity change – please. Do it!!!
YouTube ~ Search Trick
Use a hashtag! For example, typing in #Sweetpeas got almost the same search results as typing in ‘growing sweet peas’.
