Saturday, November 20th, 2010

Copyright 2010 JAGWIRE Group and its licensors. All rights reserved.Rapid-fire tweets from overlapping social media shows Web 2.0 Summit, DeFrag Conference 2010Amplify and TWTRCON SF10  overwhelmed my Twitter feed this week. How can anyone keep up with all this information (and still do an honest day’s work)? Homework this weekend, that’s the answer! Here are the links to the articles and video footage that I plan to review.  Please join me because I really don’t like to do homework alone.

Web 2.0 Summit (November 15-17, 2010) San Francisco, CA

Co-produced by O’Reilly Media and UBM TechWeb in association with John Battelle’s Federated Media, the Seventh Annual Web 2.0 Summit (formally known as the Web 2.0 Conference) was live-streamed for the first time in its history this year, and video footage is available on YouTube  from O’Reilly Media.

My Favorite Tools: Paper.Li

Thursday, November 4th, 2010

Jottings by a tech PR consultant on a tireless quest for the next best tool, application, widget or Website to help “balance” life between the cyber and real worlds.

I published an online newsletter today in under a minute. All it took was one stroke of a button and voila I had nine pages beautifully formatted with compelling content neatly filed under nine tabs: headlines, technology, business, stories, arts & entertainment, education, environment, public relations and mobile. You think I’m kidding don’t you?

I’m not! You can do it too if you use Twitter. 

Paper.Li is an application that organizes what it deems the “relevant” Tweets and associated links from the people you follow on Twitter into a newspaper layout. I follow 181 people that are mostly writing about technology, public relations and social media so my instant newsletter reflects those interests, but lo and behold it parsed my Twitter feeds into areas that I wouldn’t normally create categories for: arts & entertainment, education and environment.  This gives me a new perspective on the information that I am consuming through Twitter.  News content can be created for any Twitter user, list or #tag, according to Paper.Li. You can select the frequency whether daily, morning or evening or weekly. The funny thing is that I see a lot of content in this newsletter that I missed during my scans of Twitter throughout the day. (more…)

Facebook’s Death Knell?

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Ringing the Death Knell

Is that the faint tinkle of a death knell I’m hearing for Facebook among its once rabidly loyal small business owners?  Probably not! It’s more likely just the echo of the reverberating collective screams heard on Twitter and Facebook and around the blogosphere since yesterday afternoon when word started to trickle out that Facebook had announced via its Developers Forum that Facebook Pages (formerly Fan Pages) could no longer have landing tabs unless they had at least 10,000 fans (in the new lingo fans are “likers”) or unless they advertised on Facebook. (See Jonathan Mast’s blog posting for more background). (more…)
