An Infographic About Pinterest

What's so hot about Pinterest? Lots of things. Its innovative design (though DaGama Web Studio created a somewhat similar style way back in 2008 for our client The Buzz Coffee and Yogurt - check it out here ). Its a social network that's more visual than verbal. No need to write much. You're just collecting images; pinning them to virtual boards and checking out your friends' boards and liking them and/or re-pinning their images. It's becoming the top referral of traffic to your website or blog - even beating out Google and... Read More

Unless you've been living off the grid, in the woods, under a rock, you know that social media has become part of our lives.   We'll look back on 2011 as the year that social media became like the air we breathe - so much a part of us that we wonder about those people who have managed to NOT have a Facebook account or at the very least, have a LinkedIn account (what ARE they hiding?).  Look at these examples of how social media and social search have become ingrained into our daily activities around the planet: You can no longer...

Facebook continues to dominate as the place most Americans go to on a regular basis, with 58 per cent of U.S. online adults logging in monthly.

Facebook's Timeline is a Total Game Changer

Facebook introduces "Timeline" -  Facebook's new look and concept - on October 1, 2011. Timeline is bound to revolutionize the way we use Facebook because it will make us begin to think of our lives as something to be documented for our grandchildren, great-grandchildren and for generations to come. With Timeline, Facebook has truly become the scrapbook of our lives. For those of us who wanted to start using Timeline before anyone else, we had to go through the steps of applying for being an API developer with Facebook. (Go here to follow... Read More

Did You Know You're Naked? Your Online Reputation is Showing

People can check out your Online Reputation (your O.R.) by reviewing your Social Media profiles in Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and other places on the Web.

Doing the "down lo" on you means that I quickly "know" or have a perception of your character by the digital footprint you're tracking around the Web. I do one one more thing: I check my "gut" (my inner sense or intuition) about you... Read More
