ChatWing – Real time Conversations on your Website or Blog

By | August 26th, 2012|Categories: Internet Tools|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

 Chatwing - Live Chat!  I've been looking in to this new tool - Chatwing by Lujure which originally was/is an application that extends widgets to Facebook pages.  You can now Embed the ChatWing Shoutbox on your website to give your visitors a real-time communication tool.  Your very own website chatroom! Free Application  Its so simple to get and its free  - You just create your account here http://chatwing.com/ and then embed the code as a widget on your website or blog - I just used a text widget. Put the code on - and after a few minutes the chat box appeared. This could be really useful if you post a blog which is likely to have many viewers that need to ask a question, as most people can't be bothered to leave a comment but they might ask in the chat box, knowing that they could get a answer in real-time.  A great way to engage your readers or customers. You can have 1000 users on ChatWing at anyone time, that might be rather busy but at least you know if there are 10 [...]

It wasn’t me! Twitter admits to unfollowing for us

By | January 22nd, 2012|Categories: Internet Tools, Social Media|Tags: , , , , |

Twitter has confirmed that there is a known issue which seems as if it is unfollowing our followers. Well, what they actually say is that it just appears that your friends have been unfollowed but really they haven't.  However this doesn't explain why you cannot dm users that you know that you were following previously. The first comments on this page from this Twitter support blog are 6 months old, of which there are 345 comments - so I assume thats how old the post is but still we have this problem. People say a fix is to reload the twitter.com page, it doesn't show those users as unfollowed anymore. I haven't tried this yet. However, its good news to know that Twitter to acknowledge the fact, as its pretty embarrassing to say - I didn't unfollow you, it must have been twitter - yeah sure! Mind you, now its a good excuse to use, if say you unfollowed someone by mistake or in the heat of the moment! ha!  No, of course I wouldn't do that! This unfollowing is not a new issue, [...]

Don’t give up! New Year’s Resolutions [Infographic]

By | January 10th, 2012|Categories: Internet Tools|Tags: , , , , , , |

It seems that New years resolutions are made to break, a little bit like rules! We seem to set ourselves impossible tasks or too many at once. We are 10 days into 2012 now... How are you doing with your 2012 resolutions? If you said you were going to Eat Healthy Food and went out for a huge steak and chips this weekend, does that mean you've failed as this infographic suggests?  No, of course not - it just means you tripped up along the way. Besides you can have a treat now and then, ok it was a little early into the year, but don't give up! If you have chosen more than one resolution such as... Get Fit Loose weight Give up Smoking Get a better job Leave Facebook Join Google+ ...just decide which one is the most important and stick to that for 6 months or so, then maybe tackle the next one.  You will just go crazy trying to do them all at once and probably give up completely.  Choose the easiest first like joining Google+ :) Keep [...]

ZenOK Offer Free Online Backup with 21GB storage

By | October 2nd, 2011|Categories: Internet Tools|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

ZenOK  was founded by Ron Hessing in 2005 on the belief that data is the most valurable asset people and businesses own today. ZenOK have recently increased their free back up from 2GB to 21GB of storage. "Online Backup for everyone! It is free and remains free, forever!" Ron Hessing - Founder (August 15th, 2011) ZenOK is an experiment in a new kind of Online Backup built on the idea that you should never have to lose your documents, spreadsheets and photos (again), and you should always be able to access the file you want. I know the feeling of losing important data -  it is not good!  I had a damaged hard drive which took a hell of a lot of work to retrieve some documents and files that I hadn't backed up. I eventually used Ubuntu live CD to recover the lost data - it worked but it was lucky.  Now I am much more conscious of backing things up.  I don't put all of my eggs in one basket either, just incase that fails.  So these online backup systems are of great use, [...]

How do you know who to follow on Twitter?

By | August 3rd, 2010|Categories: Internet Tools, Social Networking Tools|Tags: |

  Do you find it as difficult as me to find like minded people to follow on Twitter ? Yes, Twitter has a search and there are various websites and lists all over the internet, some of which are helpful, but it still takes a very long time to trawl through all of the people to find the right connections for you, if you are particular like me.  How do you know who to follow on Twitter? He are a few sites to check out. Edit - 2016 - Some of these sites have changed slightly - but I've left them here for you to check out. http://wefollow.com/  http://tweepml.org/ http://followerwonk.com/ http://www.twellow.com/ http://listorious.com/  - I like this one for the name! cool ;) Even Twitter has recently introduced the "who to follow" tool. I was very excited about this at first.  I thought it would be an easy way to follow people, its apparently based on people you follow with your interests and tastes, but sadly it doesn't work for me, I think because I follow a vast variety of tweeters. My absolute [...]

Drunk Tweeting

By | February 21st, 2010|Categories: Internet Tools|Tags: |

Remember drunk dialing? Or did you prefer drunk texting? The slightly craftier version of drunk dialing, which enabled you to be either incognito or at least not seen in your moment of mortification – and you didn't have to pay the consequences immediately. Typically in those instances it was only one person that you offended or had to apologise too. Well, now there is another craze taking over where you can offend or show yourself up in public to countless numbers of people at once – it’s called drunk tweeting using Twitter.com There are two websites dedicated to drunken tweeting www.dweeting.com you can even follow them on twitter I believe, where they retweet the best drunken tweets and http://www.twitdrunk.com/ which has pictures too, so if you are really embarrassing you might find yourself lucky enough to be listed. Although scarily, on twitdrunk there is a page where you can send an anonymous tweet, which is a bit dangerous to be honest, maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that – but there are a few sites for this anonymous activity anyway. If [...]
