Ruby Media Group Partners with Lovebugs Rescue to Aid Dogs Without A Voice

Ruby Media Group, a Westchester County Public Relations and Social Media Agency, partnered with Lovebugs Rescue this Valentines Day to help raise awareness for animal rescue. Lovebugs Rescue is a Southern California foster-based animal rescue shelter that works with local animal shelters that are overpopulated to decrease the amount of animals being euthanized unnecessarily.

“We love the animal rescue work that Lovebugs Rescue is committed to and we couldn’t think of a better organization to give back to. We are so excited to lend our PR & Social Media services to help raise awareness for this wonderful organization,” said Ruby Media Group Partner Erin Murphy.

This Valentine’s Day, Ruby Media Group is helping the non-profit organization by assisting in the promotion of Cash for Cupid, a fund drive to benefit Lovebugs Rescue.  During the month of February, show your love by joining Lovebugs Rescue’s Cash for Cupid fundraiser. To donate, simply drop in a dollar in an envelope, or write a check, and mail to: Lovebugs Rescue, PO Box 953, Corona Del Mar, CA 92625. If you don’t have a stamp, don’t worry! You can donate at http://www.lovebugsrescue.org/donate.html. Each dollar that is received goes towards various necessities to aid Lovebugs Rescue in their quest to help save animals lives and find abandoned animals loving homes. The dollar will go towards spaying/neutering of the dogs, dog food, microchips, vaccines, shelter pull fees and medical needs.

“Lovebugs Rescue is excited about the opportunity to partner with Ruby Media Group so that we may reach a wider audience to share our message about the continuing need to help dogs that have been abandoned and neglected,” said Lovebugs Recuse Founder Heather Peterson. “We are a small foster based dog rescue located in Orange County, California and specifically save dogs that need a higher level of medical care. As a result, we depend greatly on donations from our kind hearted supporters and partners to give us the ability to save dogs that may not otherwise have the opportunity.”

Social Media Expert Kris Ruby on FOX NEWS with Shepard Smith “Facebook Privacy Feature Dropped”

Social Media & PR Expert Kris Ruby joined FOX NEWS Shepard Smith to share about the new changes to Facebook’s privacy and how users will be impacted.

Watch here 

From now on, there is no way to prevent your Timeline from coming up when someone searches for you by name. When enabled, the setting removes the ability for users to access a Timeline profile via search, even when a user puts in the exact name of the person he or she is locating.

These major Facebook changes impact the larger social media privacy discussion.  Facebook says that currently only “single-digit percentage” of their users had the settings activated. While that may seem low, at 1.2 billion profiles, even at one percent that is still 12 million people who didn’t easily want to be found.

People who were on Facebook who thought they could keep a “hidden identity” will now need to decide if they should get off the site altogether. This raises the larger question: if you don’t want to be found and don’t want to be “social” should you really even be on social media?

In 2014, people really need to understand if they want to be active on social media they are giving up a certain amount of privacy. This needs to stop coming as a shock to people that are active on these platforms.
