Social Media Charm School:“When it comes to social media, it is easy to be dazzled by big numbers and strong opinions. But often what is really needed isn’t a comprehensive strategy with metrics and targets, but a charming and intelligent human personality.” (via graphpaper)

Mobile Marketers Must Look Past The iPhone: “With all the negative press, should marketers question their own love affair with the device and its app platform?” (via Silicon Alley Insider)

Hyperlocal news makes news: the case of Everyblock: Yesterday’s reports of MSNBC’s acquisition of Adrian Holovaty’s Everyblock have generally treated the latter as a “hyperlocal news service.” And to be sure, this is abetted by some of the language Everyblock itself uses to frame and describe what it offers: a “news feed for your block” which can help you “find news nearby.” But for whatever it’s worth, I’ve never understood Everyblock’s fundamental proposition in quite this way, and here’s why I think understanding what it offers as “news” is giving it short shrift.

  1. Greetings I am so excited I found your blog, I really found you by mistake, while I was researching on Aol for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thank you for a marvelous post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the minute but I have book-marked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the excellent job.

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog audience have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

  3. I like the valuable information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently. I am quite certain I’ll learn a lot of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  7. I would also love to add that if you do not already have got an insurance policy or you do not belong to any group insurance, you could well make use of seeking aid from a health insurance broker. Self-employed or those with medical conditions commonly seek the help of the health insurance agent. Thanks for your post./wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for your blog post. I would love to say that your health insurance dealer also works well with the benefit of the coordinators of your group insurance policies. The health broker is given a long list of benefits searched for by an individual or a group coordinator. What a broker really does is seek out individuals or coordinators which often best match up those needs. Then he reveals his recommendations and if both sides agree, the actual broker formulates an agreement between the two parties./wp-login.php?action=registerWe would also like to mention that most of those who find themselves with out health insurance usually are students, self-employed and people who are laid-off. More than half of the uninsured are really under the age of Thirty-five. They do not think they are in need of health insurance because they are young as well as healthy. Their particular income is often spent on real estate, food, plus entertainment. Some people that do go to work either entire or in their free time are not given insurance by their jobs so they go without due to rising tariff of health insurance in the usa. Thanks for the suggestions you write about through this web site./wp-login.php?action=registerThanks for the suggestions you write about through this web site. In addition, numerous young women which become pregnant usually do not even try to get medical health insurance because they are concerned they wouldn’t qualify. Although a lot of states now require that insurers give coverage no matter what about the pre-existing conditions. Fees on these kinds of guaranteed programs are usually greater, but when with the high cost of medical care it may be some sort of a safer strategy to use to protect your financial future.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
