Come join me at Oust.me – Oust.me is a game that is layered on top of your foursquare activity. Foursquare itself has a gamification element with the point system and mayorship rewards as well as check-in badges. But this is so meh. I thought the lack of engagement around the gamification system in foursquare would […]
Social Media, Social Networks and the Social Web
You'll find information and posts about social networking sites, social media, and social apps. I like to explore social networking pros and cons and the current state of what I call The Social Web.
This post was generated by Dashter What’s #Foodiechats all about? I found #FoodieChats by accident while I was working on one of my other accounts @incentivegifts. FoodieChats seems to be as the name suggests a Twitter chat for foodies and food lovers. Lots of good stuff went on, here’s their official website: http://www.foodiechats.com/ Below is […]
Google Offers has been rumored for sometime now, but it has just been announced. Google Offers works in conjunction with Goolge places and allows business owners to offer deals or specials. The intro video implies a lot of flexibility. If you didn’t believe you needed to be in the geolocation directories like foursquare and yelp, […]
This just popped on my radar and it looks pretty cool and useful. Many of my friends in social media are involved in activism. This could be a great platform to increase awareness and raise funds for important causes. Buy Stuff that supports the causes you love, that’s their pitch. Check them out. Buy stuff […]
Example of what I consider to be a great post in a Facebook page. It Builds community, shows support and positive activity.
I’ve gotten a few specials over the past year with Foursquare and I want to keep track of them so here’s the first pass at the ones I remember. Spend 10, get 5. spend 25, get 10. Free Sandwich on 6th Check-in. Free wine tasting, 3 or 4 times. Free bottle of wine, 2 times. […]
The end of Formulists is just around the corner. Here’s I have a few comments, and an alternative Twitter app to help you mangage lists.
You know what would give us really good Google Plus integration? If Google plus tied into your Gmail when you want to attach a picture. Imagine when you want to send an e-mail from your Gmail account with a picture from your Google+ account. You simply click on “attach file”, and then browse to the […]
This is the first promoted Tweet I notice in my Twitter Timeline. What do you think of it? Will you be using promoted tweets now that they’re starting to show up more? What do you think about Argyle Social’s promoted tweet? Here’s the link they sent you to: http://ar.gy/opz
2011 was rough, I’m glad 2012 is here. Clean slate to kick things into a higher gear, and though I’m tired, and about to go to bed, I couldn’t hit the sack without sharing this with you first. It made me so happy, got my eyes teary and just gave me hope. Her name is […]
For those of you that didn’t know, I thought I’d let you know about this cool thing I’ve been doing for a while. I’m not really big into self promotion and so it might come as a surprise to you that I’ve been doing this since May of last year. It started with a call […]
Turntable.fm is the latest social music engine and so far it’s pretty cool. Let me tell you the basics. It’s similar to blip.fm in that when you join, you become a “DJ” and you get to play songs that you can find on the search. You can also upload your own mp3 files and so […]
This is a must read if you’re in social media, marketing, business or want to be in any of those three. I separate social media and marketing because I really want you to consider this book if you’re in the traditional marketing space. For those of you doing social media, and doing it well, you […]
Talk O’Clock is a new social app. Kind of interesting and kind of kooky but nonetheless I gave it a try. The whole concept is novel and it works like this: You set up an alarm for whatever time and date you need and the system will try to find someone that will call you […]
Just updating my fellow readers on my latest adventures.
So this is part of my experiment with Klout. If you don’t know then you don’t know. Andri Permana Berrie Pelser Justin Moore-Brown Carol Hink Dennis Carpenter
As you might have heard, Delicious was acquired by AVOS, a new internet company. I’ve been a fan of Delicious pretty much since Yahoo bought it aback in 2005. About six years later, Yahoo has transferred this great service to a new comany called AVOS. After Yahoo created the plugin for Firefox, Delicious became my […]
Tarpipe has an annoying bug. When the bug is triggered, you may not be able to move or edit some of your workflow modules after you open a saved workflow. Sometimes they seem to go to the top and be unreachable. Here’s a quick way to fix it using Firefox and an extension called Firebug. […]
Follow up to the last video I posted about Tarpipe. This expands on that previous video where I show you how to use Tarpipe with Twitter and Flickr. It is improved by using a custom message for Twitter and a URL shortener like Bit.ly.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Microsoft products since I started playing around with technology over a decade ago. I love some of the ideas they bring to the table, and their contribution to progress of technology is unquestionable. But their implementation is usually poorly done, clumsy and generally just sub par. Here are two […]
