There you have it folks, all the videos from the 2 nights of performance from Salsa-Lah 2017. Some of you might wonder why some of the videos can't be located on youtube itself but is visible here. Well, Youtube has a strict copyright rule and some of the songs are restricted by the original artists themselves so most of the time, we just avoid putting in there to avoid getting our channels punished even though it's just our own performances. So hope you guys understand why some of the videos are hosted elsewhere.

Next post is the performances from the Latin Experience Bali 2017. Until the next Salsa-Lah event, share this post with your friends so they can enjoy all the performances as well!

The 4th edition of the Latin Experience organized by the Cuban Salsa Indonesia superwomen has come to an end but that does not mean we leave the weekend behind just like that, I was engaged by the CSI to be there to capture all the laughter, fun and dance over the 3 days to be shared with friends across the globe. Here's some visuals from the Latin Experience Bali 2017!

How to earn money from your content on Facebook, esp video!


On Wednesday, Facebook released a post with guidelines on what publishers and what content can earn money from sharing to or posting on the site. Making money from Facebook includes content sponsored by a brand, sites featuring ads from Facebook Audience Network, ads in Facebook Instant Articles, or ad breaks in Facebook videos.

The standards are pretty clear about nine categories banned from making money via Facebook:


  1. Misappropriation of Children's Characters
  2. Tragedy and Conflict (ex. natural disasters, crime, self-harm)
  3. Debated Social Issues (ex. attacks on people or groups) 
  4. Violent Content (against people or animals) 
  5. Adult Content (ex. nudity, explicit or suggestive positions) 
  6. Prohibited Activity (ex. sale or use of illegal products) 
  7. Explicit Content (ex. blood, medical procedures, gore)
  8. Drugs or Alcohol Use
  9. Inappropriate Language

There's also a new tool to update publishers if their content is disabled from advertising. You can then appeal within the system directly on the site. A step forward in terms of transparency for publishers to take immediate actions.

Along with this update, Facebook is cracking down on fake news as well, Pages that repeatedly share fake news by third-party checkiers will no longer be able to participate in revenue programs, this along with the fact that Pages that share fake news will not be allowed to pay for promoted posts on News Feed.

Publishers making money from Facebook is, as always, a work in progress. Facebook is instituting its new feedback loop to videos with ad breaks first and later expand the effort to Instant Articles.

Hopefully, soon, they'd allow more pages and profiles to join the ranks of those who has started to earn from posting contents on Facebook.

Google Drive Apps for Desktop Going Offline in December 2017


Don't let the big hoo-haa that is going around scare you. Google Drive, the desktop (pc/mac) app is going away, but the service itself is basically intact and not going anywhere. So if you use the service via your web browser, then you won't notice much difference. But if you rely on the desktop app, you might want to download the Backup and Sync and start familiarizing with the app before GD app goes completely offline.

Google Drive for Mac/PC will no longer be supported starting on December 11th, 2017, and it will shut down completely on March 12th, 2018.


The real motivator behind the Drive app’s deprecation is a push to move enterprise users over to the new Drive File Stream app. Launching on September 26th, File Stream is intended to be used as a sort of collective hard drive for teams and organizations. All files are kept in the cloud and can be edited from anywhere. Say, for example, you’re a designer—you wouldn’t be downloading that PSD file, opening it in Photoshop, making some changes, saving it on your hard drive, and then re-uploading it to the cloud. Instead you’ll just open it straight out of File Stream and save it in the same place.

A few important things to note:

In October, Drive for Mac/PC users may start seeing messages in the product notifying them that Drive for Mac/PC is going away.
  • If a user is running both Drive File Stream and Backup and Sync on the same machine, they’ll be prompted to stop syncing My Drive with Backup and Sync in order to save disk space.
  • Team Drive editors won’t be able to edit their Team Drive files when they’re opened in Drive File Stream; they’ll only be able to view them. 
  • To edit these files, they’ll need to open them in Drive on the web.
For more about the updates, check out the GSuite's post about it.
