Your Facebook Profile Information. What Can I See?

I was in a conversation with a friend on Facebook where we were discussing the fact that Maryland’s Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services was demanding that not only new recruits give up their Facebook usernames and logins, but also long standing members of the force. Just recently, they have put a temporary hold on requiring this [...]

The Benefits Of Social Media

I go into a certain chain store a lot. I generally buy a lot of software and toner for my laser printer there. I know the people there by name. We often talk about what is new and what products are coming in the near future. Social media has always a hot topic to discuss. [...]

The Awesome Power Of Social Media

Never in the life of man has man had the ability to communicate so widely and quickly. When the earthquake struck New Zealand recently, we instantly became aware of it and how bad it was.

Twitter and Third Party Software

Third party applications are feeling the pain of a strained relationship with Twitter; especially those who have placed Twitter in the app name.  It's really about accessing Twitter's API and how the third party is following or not following Twitter's terms of agreement. My favorite product Tweetdeck could be effected. Their new ability to post [...]

LEA – A Model For Connecting With Others

LEA is short for Listen, Empathize and Act. This topic is coming to mind because I have to do a presentation before some instructors next Friday. As a Service Advisor at a Chrysler Store years ago, they taught this principle for customer service. This is a good principle to discuss in the realm of social media. This [...]

I have been noticing more and more how powerful connections are on social media. You might think I already knew this, but I am seeing the importance of this grow daily. This effects how you build your social media presence as well. If you treat people like numbers, you will them them only as numbers. [...]
