Facebook, Skype and Video Chatting. The New Wave?


Earlier this past week (or if you read this in an archive, it’ll be too late to say the past week…lol) but social media monster Facebook has teamed up with Skype and now you’ll get to make video chatting with ease to your friends! Talk about expanding a social network! With over 600 million people using Skype and the soon to be zillions using Facebook, this is still in the engagement process before the marriage. Blood tests, talking to their pastors, arranging the license, making sure the parents approve, you know. All the things to do before marriage. You don’t want a shotgun wedding. What I mean is, it’s almost ready to launch but I have the goods on it.

Small Business and Social Media. Take advantage of these free ideas to be seen online!

Socialmedia

I use Meetup groups to promote my business on a personal level. I love the fact that I can talk one on one with people and get to know them on that personal level and find out about them as a person and as a business. I have made quite a few business contacts going to those meetups and recieved quite a few jobs out of those business meetings. How? For me,  I show that once you provide value and solve a need and convey good feelings and show benefits, you’ll get some taste for your business.

Osama Bin Laden dead, Looks like Twitter broke the story. Is Twitter the new news source?


First, let me say unabashedly  I am so proud of this country and the troops and that this evil has been wiped from this earth. Our prayers should still be with the victims of 911 and the brave people who have lost their lives because of Bin Laden and his equally evil counterparts. I loved this. At the Mets-Phillies, chants of USA broke out. Watch here from You Tube.  

Do you have a keyboard monkey working for you? Is your social media campaign a zoo?

So what is a keyboard monkey? My friend Will Morgan of TagTeam Creative here in Dallas has used that term and I love it! It means, at least to me, someone who is a low level employee or intern that is posting updates on the social network and their skill level isn’t exactly great and needs a little work and so they need a little leadership and a gentle guiding hand while they are learning posting skills. You did see some skills, that’s the reason you hired them, right?

My Space is on the selling block, but bring your noseplugs. That is a dead carcus and the smell is bad.

The once mighty, once relevant and once THE social site, My Space, is on the selling block to get unloaded on some poor sap (errrr, lucky buyer) who wants to dole out a few bucks to save this sinking Titanic. Really?

Not so much. Facebook allows Profile Pages to become Business Pages. You could be in DANGER.

I may be in the minority (and according to what I am reading, I am) but hear me out. I don’t think this change that FB is allowing to change your profile to become a business page is all that and in fact it could hurt quite a few people.

So Facebook “Like” is getting a little challenge from Google! “+1” is the tool. Really!

Yeah, that’s right. +1.
I was thinking hmm, it’s almost April 1st, so is this pulling my leg? Getting a jump on the joke? +1. Really? Not digging the name, but I’m not Google..lol
A little earlier today, Google rolled out a new button called +1. The +1 button will show up next to the search engine results and the AdWords ads. It is planned for in the future that if you have a website and you are a publisher you will be able to add a +1 button to pages and articles on your sites and that should get you some search engine taste.

Social Media and the B.S. that is out there.

Seriously, this is how I feel sometimes when people start talking about how much they know about social media. This is what I hear a LOT. “Yeah, I know how to use Facebook and Twitter to help a business out” Really? How? “Oh, I just tell my friends what I am doing or post something about the next big party going on and I use that for the business so it will make them popular also” Huh? What? You are saying WHAT? THAT is what is helping a business out? Wow. Unless they are giving away drinks and it’s a bar, I don’t think that is going to work.
