Weird Instagram tagger link

Weird Instagram tagger link

Today I asked someone on Instagram why she had this weird link on her description box. She told me that someone had told her that it makes the profile more “visible.” So being the curious character I am, I thought, what the heck I’ll test it as the link does not contain Javascript and thus is not some kind of XSS which would risk my account. I copy-pasted the link into the “Website field” input and pressed submit. After that, I got an error and some message about spam. LOL
So nothing happened at first but then a friend sent me a screenshot..

Apparently, the effect is that friends that were previously tagged in pictures, get re-tagged.

Some comments about Germany’s education as I experienced it.

  • A short introduction
    Hi, I’m Karl, a Computer Science student currently studying in Germany’s Saarland, and I’d like to provide a little essay on my experience of the first semester as a master’s student in Saarland- Germany. I’m convinced that this will be of help to other students, mainly internationals which are contemplating a study career in Germany as I get tons of questions regarding it.

When I first thought about studying in Germany in 2014, I did a lot of online research and found little information in general. At least in narrative styles like blog posts and first-hand information from students. Most of the information I found was from comments on places like Quora, Reddit, and other online forums. But again very limited in detail.

So with this post hopefully I will provide a little more detail on a variety of subjects on the topic of studying in Germany. Let’s dive in.

Algunas Universidades benefician a alumnos de mayores recursos

Hoy me llamó la atención un hecho que me pareció mal desde cuando estaba aun en Paraguay y alumno de la UA.
El hecho que allá los gastos del estacionamiento se distribuyen entre todos los alumnos, tengan o no coche. Esto en mi perspectiva es injusto ya que los alumnos de menos recursos, y/o los que se mueven en con medios mas ecológicos como bicicleta o de pie, pagan para que los de mayores recursos, que generan mayor polución, no tengan que pagar tanto por el estacionamiento.
