September 9, 2018
- Moved the folllowing lines of code from the 'resetVariables()' function into the 'refreshdata()' one in Account.swift and UserProfile.swift, in order to fix the crash bug on selecting a post thumbnail:

- Added the following line of code into the 'sharePost()' function in ShareScreen.swift, in order to resize images to a max of 640px width:
        let scaledImg = scaleImageToMaxWidth(image: self.imagePreview.image!, newWidth: 640)

- Wrapped some lines of code into an IF statement in the 'func sharePost()' method in ShareScreen.swift as it follows:
if pObj.objectId == nil {
            pObj[POSTS_LIKES] = 0
            pObj[POSTS_COMMENTS] = 0
            pObj[POSTS_BOOKMARKED_BY] = [String]()
            pObj[POSTS_LIKED_BY] = [String]()
            pObj[POSTS_CAN_COMMENT] = true
            pObj[POSTS_REPORTED_BY] = [String]()
In this way, when you edit a Post the app doesn't reset comments, likes and other data, like if you were posting a new Post.

- InterestingPeople.swift was accidentally missing some code, so I've added it, it was the 'followButt()' function and its initialization into the 'cellForRowAtIndexPath()' delegate method
