This is after choosing the categories of interest, giving personal information about myself than I should have to the large media companies and thereby advertisers.</div><div><br></div><div>I'm convinced that these News media are trying make me someone they want to be, rather than give me what I need.</div><div><br></div><div>What does it take to get only the News I need, which will be actually useful for my life?</div> 5 points posted by Andora /problems/156-get-me-the-news-i-need-not-the-news-i-want-news-information 156 Thu, 17 Sep 2020 13:21:00 +0000 Why something is trending on the social networks #socialmedia #information I'm not constantly hooked to social networks, but when I do occasionally use it; I find some topic trending but unable to find the reason until I put some reasonable amount of time in searching for it.<div><br></div><div>I think there is a need gap for a service which shows what is trending, where and why is it trending as well in one single place. Please let me know if there is any such service already.</div> 5 points posted by Shabeer Ahmed /problems/18-why-something-is-trending-on-the-social-networks-socialmedia-information 18 Mon, 02 Sep 2019 07:13:00 +0000 Following work of a non-acting member from films #movies #information Many times I like the work of a member from a film crew such as, cinematographer, visual effects director, music composer, stunt coordinator, dialogue writer, director etc. who are not actors or at-least not lead actors. I feel they don't get the attention they deserve in making a movie great.<div><br></div><div>I want to follow the latest work of a cinematographer, visual effects director, dialogue writer, stunt coordinator etc. I liked in a movie. Actors, especially lead actors get stupendous coverage on television and online; but others from the film crew who had put exemplary effort don't get covered about their latest work.</div><div><br></div><div>A fan like me who would like to know about the latest work of these professionals, would watch a movie/series for their work but have no mechanism to get the required information and hence the need gap. Of course, some of them might have twitter accounts; but I would like to get updates on just their latest work and not their personal/world views; so Twitter doesn't fill this need gap.</div> 3 points posted by Ramon Eater /problems/32-following-work-of-a-non-acting-member-from-films-movies-information 32 Thu, 12 Sep 2019 02:44:00 +0000
