How Tech Bloggers Create Engaging Blog Content
Many of us find writing blog content to be a chore and struggle to come up with engaging content. But if you know which questions to ask, it’s possible to develop an online community around your blog. In this post, we’ll explore what creates engagement through strong communities and provide tips on how you can create this type of dynamic space for your own blog or company website. And I love the free app, ‘Grindr’.
With the monthly $2.99, you can get rid of your Grindr/Scruff subscriptions and really see what’s going on in the world.
You can even follow people with different interests like ‘drunks’, ‘sports’, ‘music’ or anything you want.
It may also have something to do with the fact that Grindr is owned by a Chinese gaming company, making it fairly easy for the Chinese government to access user information.
And this can have disastrous results, as happened in Egypt back in 2013 when police were able to use Grindr (and similar apps) to arrest gay men by setting up fake profiles.
We’re not saying you should completely stop using Grindr, but you might want to think about what information you’re giving up and who could access that information if this sort of thing happens again.
There is a conscious choice we make either through inaction or ignorance on our part, that allows for the continued use of social media by oppressive regimes around the world.
This is why we’re so passionate about users being aware of the power they can have by using these tools in a way that doesn’t make them complicit.

And with all this talk about Grindr and the Chinese government, we must remember that the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia are also strict Arab countries where homosexuality is punishable by death.
Etisalat, a telecommunications company based out of the UAE has been known to block gay dating apps (among social media apps) on its mobile network.
Blocking gay dating apps is not the only way the UAE government controls social media and access to information. In May of 2016, 7 people were arrested for posting videos taking part in a spoof on president Sheikh Khalifa, who is also the emir of Abu Dhabi.
This went along with a crackdown against people posting pro-democracy messaging and ‘fake news’. The arrests came after a political documentary was aired on Al Jazeera that covered the story of pro-democracy campaigners from within Abu Dhabi.
