#iahsfb, tweets and the “news”

My previous job to Clickstop was in “the media”.  At Source Media group in the web department team – to be exact.  Back in those days I used to have what may be referred to as “spirited discussions” with colleagues about social media and twitter and the like. Its funny how some people still have […]

Everyone wants to promote their site, generate more traffic and get social networking links. The basic goal of the search engine optimization is to promote your website to generate a flow of traffic. It’s quite difficult, for some web-masters, to decide whether or not spending their time on promoting their site’s content on top social […]

Notes from #RJI Talkfest

Jason and I headed down to Mizzou on Tuesday evening to make it for the RJI Talkfest.  (You can review the live blog here.)

So, […]

Privacy in the Age of UGC

Wired magazine posted this article “Web 2.0 Project Taps ‘Wisdom of the Crowd’ to Probe Presidential Contenders” last week and although it seems to have a bit of the youtube debate flavor – it could prove to be very interesting. The web-hip “community-driven” presidential debates touted by the television networks have been a disappointment so […]

Pretty Social Networks

MySpace was THE social network that started much of the Web 2.0 social hype. This is a great quote from the mashable site “If you asked most MySpace-haters what’s their problem with the service, they’d probably say: it’s ugly. Meanwhile, people tell us they are switching from Twitter to Pownce because it’s prettier and easier […]
