• 10+ Biggest Remote Tech Jobs Aggregators Comparison

      There is a myriad of articles about where to find remote jobs, particularly in tech. Some of them are outdated and most of them don't provide detailed reviews.

        • Toxic Comments Detection in Russian


            Currently, social network sites tend to be one of the major communication platforms in both offline and online space. Freedom of expression of various points of view, including toxic, aggressive, and abusive comments, might have a long-term negative impact on people’s opinions and social cohesion. As a consequence, the ability to automatically identify and moderate toxic content on the Internet to eliminate the negative consequences is one of the necessary tasks for modern society. This paper aims at the automatic detection of toxic comments in the Russian language. As a source of data, we utilized anonymously published Kaggle dataset and additionally validated its annotation quality. To build a classification model, we performed fine-tuning of two versions of Multilingual Universal Sentence Encoder, Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers, and ruBERT. Finetuned ruBERT achieved F1 = 92.20%, demonstrating the best classification score. We made trained models and code samples publicly available to the research community.

          • Amazing Tactics to Improve Your Social Media Marketing Efforts

              image

              The benefits of a great social media strategy include increased brand awareness, customer loyalty, quality leads, and increased sales.

              However, these kinds of results are not easy to achieve.

              There’s fierce competition on social media and different ranking algorithms judging the content you post. Social media audiences also choose what content they deem relevant.

              You can no longer post content and hope that people will follow your account, engage with your content, and convert. Instead, you need to implement tactics that can help you gain market traction while enhancing your social presence.

              Moreover, a good social media app is what can actually bring you fruitful results. You can hire dedicated mobile app developers from reputed mobile app development companies to boost your social media marketing ROI.

              In this post, I’ll discuss some of the tactics you can implement to boost your social media marketing efforts.

              • What is Slack and How Does It Work?

                  Slack is the best inbox organizational tool in the market now. It is used by many huge companies ranging to average-sized and small companies as well. You can make and manage the business conversations through this app and can keep a record of them too.


                  Slack was initially released in August 2013, when there was not its single competitor out there in the market. Yes, there were many other messaging platforms but not for the business. Usually, the business websites give a boring idea of faded colors and take all the charm and drive away to use that website or app. But Slack did something different.

                  • Bypassing LinkedIn Search Limit by Playing With API

                    • Translation
                    [Because my extension got a lot of attention from the foreign audience, I translated my original article into English].

                    Limit


                    Being a top-rated professional network, LinkedIn, unfortunately, for free accounts, has such a limitation as Commercial Use Limit (CUL). Most likely, you, same as me until recently, have never encountered and never heard about this thing.

                    image

                    The point of the CUL is that when you search people outside your connections/network too often, your search results will be limited with only 3 profiles showing instead of 1000 (100 pages with 10 profiles per page by default). How ‘often’ is measured nobody knows, there are no precise metrics; the algorithm decides it based on your actions – how frequently you’ve been searching and how many connections you’ve been adding. The free CUL resets at midnight PST on the 1st of each calendar month, and you get your 1000 search results again, for who knows how long. Of course, Premium accounts have no such limit in place.

                    However, not so long ago, I’ve started messing around with LinkedIn search for some pet-project, and suddenly got stuck with this CUL. Obviously, I didn’t like it that much; after all, I haven’t been using the search for any commercial purposes. So, my first thought was to explore this limit and try to bypass it.

                  • How do you choose products in stores?

                    The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people. Theodore Roosevelt

                    In the previous article I tried to cover the basics of pricing analytics. Now I'd like to talk about something more interesting.

                    Have you ever thought about why you choose certain products in stores, why you prefer them to other similar ones? Many shopping trips are spontaneous, so it's probably impossible to give a clear answer for all the times you go shopping. But the general idea is obvious: you go shopping for a specific reason (to get food, a gadget, for entertainment, to play blackjack). In this article I'm going to use available data from grocery retailers to talk about how a set of basic logical assumptions and community analysis can help us determine the way customers choose products.

                    • Telegram after 5 years

                        A few years ago, when I was using Jabber, all of a sudden the centralized IMs that glue your account to your phone number became popular. I was skeptical towards them for some time, but then there was a temporary illusion that the Telegram developers were trying to do something bigger. Unfortunately, over time it was becoming clearer and clearer that they were not actually going to do anything that was different in any way from what other centralized IMs had to offer.
