Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook
It is getting increasingly hard for companies, big and small, to tell their story in this noisy, chaotic, social media world. This book attempts to make that task a little easier.      Most companies are on social media because it is "expected," or because their competitors are already here. But they have little, or no, idea as to how to do it the right way. Perhaps the …

This site doesn't cut it for me. Yeah, the list of restaurants and events is nice, but the reviews too often lack detail and are frequently too grounded in the "it's good because it's good" or "it sucks because it sucks" way of reviewing. I can rarely find out any real details of what I'm trying to learn about.

I can't remember what my life was like before goodreads and, honestly, I don't want to. It's a lifesaver to track the books I've read and reviewed, what my mom has out from the library, not to mention what all of my friends are reading. Not thrilled with the latest site redesign but that's hardly enough to counter all of the other enviable features.

Tags on Lunch
A good idea to help members find what they want. It needs to be accurate and easy to grasp. Not to be mistaken as a promotional tool for any community. Tags need to apply to the topic itself. (movies will go to communities with this tag and books wil go to communities with this tag etc.) so it would be much easier to find. Closely related to tag manager in communities.      …

I hate to see people embarrassed even when they deserve it. When it was over I wound up disliking the deluded as much as the deluders.

Friending: Real Relationships in a Virtual World
Something like disapproval crept into my heart when an out-of-town family member announced on Facebook that they were done using it as a means of communication. It was not the decision to abandon it that bothered me; someone might do that for legitimate reasons. It was the implication that Facebook is a superficial form of interaction that has little value.       Not being …

Branding Yourself: How to Use Social Media to
When you are interacting on Facebook or tweeting your buddies, what image are you portraying? Do you stand for something specific and express your best qualities or do you randomly put out information that could come back and haunt you?     No matter whether you work for someone else or own a business, it's important that your actions (including online content) reflect who you …

Sams Teach Yourself Foursquare in 10 Minutes (Sams
I hadn't even heard of Foursquare until it was mentioned in a social media book I was reading this past week. The description was kind of vague saying it was a mobile game for people who travelled a lot. Nonetheless, I was intrigued enough to take a look at this book.     For those new to Foursquare, it is a game. It could be best described as a geotracking game where your own …

I take back every bad thing I ever said about Justin Timberlake. It's that he came riding in on the back of a popular boy band, and we all know how that usually turns out, right? Well, if you were among the many, many Timberlake bashers, you may take heart in the fact that his singing hasn't really changed one bit. However, he has proven to be a great pop music innovator, but what really surprised …

The Social Network
    In the opening scene of Social Network we eavesdrop on a conversation between Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend. At the end of the scene Mark's now ex-girlfriend sums up his treatment of people in a succinct statement. She told him that he would probably do something big and complain that girls didn’t like him because he was a nerd. She went on to say …

You know how it is - a quick walk in the park on a sunny day and you realize you've forgotten your Frisbee. It's a common problem and unless you have a 12-pack from the sports section of Costco, you're most likely shit out of luck.      If this sounds familiar, you're going to love Google Music, a new service from the company that brought you the Internet, …

I'm still a little surprised at the amount of acclaim that has been heaped onto this film. Personally, while I did find it to be well acted and very well directed, I just was never that taken with the story or the way that it was being told. I can't claim to know Mark Zuckerberg, nor can I claim to know much about the foundation of Facebook, but this film is told from an angle that is designed …

Well folks, I finally did it. I finally saw The Social Network after missing it in theatres. May I say, it is a wonderful movie. If I had seen this in 2010 it would have definitely made it onto my favourite movies of 2010 list. Hell, it had the very potential to even top the list. The one thing that prevented me from giving it a full 100 percent is that I could not relate to or root for the protagonist, …

The nerds have invaded our world, and things are looking good!  With Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter on television, it was only a matter of time before the nerds made a come back on the big screen, and they are making their come back in a BIG WAY!  The Social Network is the story of how Facebook came to be, and let me tell you it is a nerd's wet dream.       …

*** out of ****     "Catfish" is the kind of movie that would have done even better if it hadn't been advertised so poorly. The trailers make the thing out to be some sort of thriller. What we get when we actually watch the thing is a drama; but luckily, it's a good one with a heart. I do admire "Catfish" for its entertaining qualities; and then again, there are moments where the …

   Vimeo is okay, not great; but okay.      The interface wasn't so bad; but the CYA factor for the site itself was a bit aggravating.      If I'm making a tribute type of video, using Bob Dylan's music, and I'm not charging money or allowing downloading of same; why am I restricted as long as I give credit to the artist?   …

Consequently it has become increasingly important for all sorts of organizations to adjust their online marketing strategies in order to take a full advantage of the power of social media. In the early days attempts by even …

It's hard to describe why 'Social Network' is such a valuable and effective viewing experience.  The structure treats time-frames not much differently than 'Amadeus' because it tells it's story at one point of time while using the past as a narrative to unveil the past, but this is merely grasping because in many ways, 'The Social Network' breaks new ground …
