Facebook Giveaway Scams: Worse than Fake News

Most of these scams instruct you to “like & share” a post in order to enter into a pool of possible winners. Maybe you’ve done it yourself, thinking, “what could it hurt?” Facebook giveaway scams exist for one reason: to get something from you. If you’re overly fond of your personal information (and you should be), avoid these “like & share” schemes.

How Do I Remove a Web Page from Google Search?

A web page that shows up in search results but doesn’t go anywhere will return a 404 error when users click that link. Most users will hit the back button and leave your site if they get a 404 error. That’s the main reason you can’t just delete a page from your site if it becomes out of date. You’ll have to remove a web page from the Google index if you want to eliminate this source of 404 errors.

Do I Need a Managed Service Provider if I Use SaaS?

Oftentimes, SaaS and Managed Services are presented as an either/or scenario. I can understand that kind of thinking since SaaS is an outsourced solution for software deployment and maintenance. To many business owners, this outsourced software doesn’t need any additional management. But businesses typically use a mix of proprietary software and SaaS, often with custom and legacy systems thrown in for good measure.

Have You Upgraded to Windows 10 Yet? Time is Running Out!

Whenever Microsoft does something like launch a new operating system, most people fall into one of two categories:  early adopters and those who wait until the eleventh hour.

WordPress Experts, Nerds, and Newbs at WordCamp St. Louis

Our web design team took a road trip to a gathering of WordPress experts, advocates, fans, and professionals called WordCamp St. Louis. On any given week, we at Lieberman Technologies run the gamut from a kid with a new toy that he hasn’t figured out yet to diabolical web design genius, so WordCamp was a good thing for us.

Should You Standardize Your IT Infrastructure?

Consider for a moment the phone on your desk. More than likely, your phone is identical to the phone on the desk of your cube neighbor, which is also identical to the phone that the company president uses. The same model of phone for each employee in an organization makes good business sense, both from a budgetary and usability perspective. Standardization is

Storytelling is Good For Business

Have you ever had a teacher who was so great at teaching that you still remember things you learned in that class, sometimes decades later? Most of us have had at least one of these educational superstars, whose specific talents led us to learning, oftentimes in spite of ourselves. I’ve got a handful of favorite teachers, but one of them stands out

Security Tips for Wireless Routers

If you have internet service in your home – and many American households do – chances are you’re accessing it via a Wi-Fi connection.

But Wi-Fi routers can be the source of a security

Should My Business Use Office 365?

One of the biggest operating expenses for most small to medium businesses comes from tech. Whether you have five employees or 50, keeping up-to-date on hardware and software has the potential to squeeze your budget to the breaking point.

For this reason, many businesses choose to keep working with outdated technology – they reason that if something is working there is no reason to change it. But don’t confuse functionality with productivity.

How Do Cloud Services Benefit Small Business?

  If you’re a small business owner, you’re always looking for ways to operate your business more efficiently. Among the most important areas to hold the line on expenses is the area of IT. Providing your employees with up-to-date technology has the potential to break the budget, but using outdated tech can also hurt your business’ productivity. How do you give your

Tech Resolutions for the New Year

We’ve arrived at the cusp of another new year, and just like everyone else, we’d be remiss if we didn’t spend a little time looking back. In 2015, Lieberman Technologies talked about a lot of different subjects here on our blog, but probably none as important as the issues facing tech security. There are so many ways information can be compromised, both
