Twitter People You Should Follow

April 18, 2008

Twitter obsessed and starving for social success, the new Twitter follow referring site Twubble is awesome.

If it catches on than many users will be vewy Twubbled by the amount of follower requests they are receiving. Haha.. get it? Twubbled?

Anyways…

Another downfall to it… It will always suggest you befriend @scobleizer (if your not already). This is because it works based on common followers, just like Facebook’s; People You May Know, and not based on interests or similar terms. And it is listed from most important Twitter users to least important, as you can tell.

For some reason this Facebook feature, while I understand it, really bothers me because tons of people are requesting to be my friend. Thankfully I have enabled the new Facebook privacy settings

I am definitely going to take advantage of Twubble and expand my network! So if @Frozen2late requests to follow you… now you know why.

Social Media is Fattening!

January 7, 2008

Fattening

Warning: This is a RANT. It is completely my opinion. There are no calories in Social Media…..

In every effort to keep the holiday spirit alive, I have been doing a lot of research on New Years Resolutions and how it played a big role on Social Media websites. Personally, I have made many New Years Resolutions not only for my usage of Social Media, but personally.   How lovely I can intertwine the two!

Call me a pessimist, but I feel that Social Media has a huge impact on my energy levels.  I notice that I have seriously put all of my energy and thought into Social Media.  It tires me out… I look at the time on my laptop and it is already 11PM by the time I am done with my nightly updates. I Sometimes choose to check my readers instead of working out, or walk the dog.  Now this is a contradiction to my Resolutions!!

How does one make Resolutions to do a better job of understanding and keeping up with over 25 Social Networks, reading more blogs and Working out more & Living a Healthy Lifestyle? I try to practice healthy balances… How does everyone else do it?

I saw this post once on Edgadget of a laptop on a treadmill…

I wonder how the people in my office would feel if I moved this into my cubical?!
