With the dawning of the internet age we’ve received technological advancements that have made our lives easier and more connected. But with every ying there’s a yang. And in this case, the yang is a rather frighteningly persistent cabal of hackers, internet con artists, phishers and Nigerian princes. Thanks to these groups, and more, October is now known as National Cyber Security Month.
Here at 3PRIME we realize how important good security tools and techniques are, because we’re not only protecting ourselves but our clients as well. That’s why we wanted to share some tips we gathered from SingleHop. SingleHop is a global provider of hosted IT infrastructure and cloud computing.

What you’re looking at now is the new homepage for Precision Cutting Services. Precision Cutting Services is a high quality tree cutting and lawn care business that performs work in the Hamden and southern Connecticut area. We’ve been performing a wide range of work for Precision Cutting Services for quite some time now. As stated above, we just relaunched their site with a new responsive theme which provides their web portal with several great features. First of all it looks great. It features large, clear pictures of the Precision Cutting Services’ crew at work. Moreover, the theme transforms the website into a responsive viewing experience for mobile devices and tablets. So now it will look just as good on them as it already does on desktops and laptops.
Creating sites with responsive themes serves to not only improve their look but also helps their rankings as it is one of the many features that Google takes into account when placing sites in search results.

Love them or hate them, hashtags have become a big part of the way we communicate with each other online. And they’re only going to become more pervasive thanks to the latest changes being made to Facebook.
There had been rumblings about Facebook fully embracing hashtags on their platform for a while now. And really, people have already been using hashtags on the site for a while. Facebook is just giving hashtags greater functionality, by making them searchable and turning them into clickable links. Once clicked, a hashtag will not bring up a feed of posts that have been used with that hashtag. Facebook has already started rolling out the changes, but they won’t be in effect for all users right away. Facebook will begin rolling out the changes today, but they won’t be in effect for all users.
This new development can help businesses in several ways. First, while Facebook hasn’t announced this feature, it’s to be presumed that they will be offering advertising space in the trending hashtags section. This will give businesses a chance to engage and be noticed by potential customers while participating in timely discussions. And secondly, it will give businesses the opportunity to monitor popular conversations and produce related, engaging content.
It will take a while to see just how big of an impact hashtags will have on Facebook, so stay tuned for more info.
