Tsu the new social network that pays YOU

By | October 22nd, 2014|Categories: Social Networking Tools|Tags: , , |

Its seems social networks are popping up all over the place, now we have Tsu the new social network that pays YOU, which is SO different to the new ELLO social network we have just all joined because its NOT going to have adverts - this one thinks you are going to not mind at all about the adverts because YOU will be being paid. And it just shows you, that no one really does care - as they are still signing up in droves. Tsu the new social network that pays YOU Tsu - pronouced Sue - was launched this week and people are flocking to it, unlike the recent launch of ELLO which was all under a big cloak of suspense and mystery and you had to get invited to join, and these were few and far between, with Tsu you are seeing these links http://www.tsu.co/Michelledh popping up everywhere and there is no limit to the amount of uses - its just a persons vanity URL, but it will take you to the log in - sign up page immediately.  This is where it reeks [...]

Follr – Get your digital identity secured!

By | December 16th, 2013|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , |

Founders Stephen Fells and Mark Wayman call Follr a digital identity website. Follr is a personally branded website that can be used as your initial point of contact, like you would use a business card but digitally. Follr suggest that they solve the problem of our ever changing social identities getting lost and fragmented by storing all of our content and professional or personal information, ie our digital identity. I signed up for a free trial of Follr in October to test and see what it was all about, I set up my profile, added my links, followed/friended a couple of people - its seemed great, but at the time work was really busy and it was put on the backburner.

Follr a digital identity website

Founders Stephen Fells and Mark Wayman call Follr a digital identity website.  Follr is a personally branded website that can be used as your initial point of contact, like you would use a business card but digitally.  Follr suggest that they solve the problem of our ever changing social identities getting lost and fragmented by storing all of our content and professional or personal information, ie our digital identity. So, I signed up for a free trial of follr in October to test and see what it was all about, I set up my profile, added my links, followed/friended a couple of people - its seemed great, but at the time work was really busy and it was put on the back burner.  In that time, it went very quite and I thought there would be a big buzz about it, reminding me to go there but Mark Wayman told me they were getting things to perfection before shouting, I think it now time to shout! This network is cool! What are the features of Follr News Feed - The same [...]

By | November 22nd, 2013|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , |

There is a brand new entertainment network called Jump Jukebox, which is the  brainchild of Michelle Morgan. Michelle has been writing music since she was very little and felt there was nowhere secure and unsaturated where she could present her music so like anyone would, she created her own stage and Jump Jukebox was born. Michelle wanted somewhere where artists and entertainers can share their work with each other, chat and bounce off each other, and maybe even get noticed by talent spotters. Get yourself noticed on Jump Jukebox Its not only for self promotion, because who likes to do that all of the time; its a place to share  the entertainment you love and to tell others how it inspired you, have some laughs and enjoy like minded company Like-minded creative people all in one place~ what a heavenly idea!

Is your employer blocking social sites or asking for passwords?

By | November 3rd, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

HR must embrace social I find it amazing that employers would ask for your Facebook Passwords. In one way I can understand why they would block Social Networks if they think you are wasting company time looking at tweets, but it doesn't have to be that way. Employer asked for Facebook Password This infographic from Compliance and Safety.com shows - Asking for an employers password is a clear invasion of privacy Will cause bad relations with bosses and staff Could initiate a discrimination lawsuit. It actually violates Facebook's privacy terms. With regard to blocking social sites at work, most people are not stupid enough to be on Facebook during work hours if it is not part of their own job but might like to catch up in their lunch hour or break times. However, even better it could be used for the companies benefit - IE talking about great things that are happening that day, an event at work, a new product -  This is free advertising! Amazingly school and colleges in the UK are known to block social networking sites for staff and [...]

Why aren’t all SMEs getting into Social Media

By | September 30th, 2012|Categories: Business|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Image CC - http://www.flickr.com/photos/fidenaut/4486173747/ Some SMEs are not using Social Media or not using it correctly Just being active on social media platforms like Google+ Twitter and Facebook can improve the way consumers view a company. Maybe they should read this How social media can benefit small businesses  If only for customer service, we the consumers want this..   Why? the following story could have been avoided, if the company was more accessible and responsive, correct use of social media can do this. Without going into it, I had already been let down by one company and had lost 4 days. Next stop - Wedo Beds I had seen a few companies on-line offering the same bed and mattress for about the same price on Next Day Delivery. It was quite an unusual bed - as it was 4ft and black/brown - to match other furniture. Businesses supplying this product were companies that I had never heard of, I searched for them on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ nothing. There was nothing on the website with links for social [...]

Via.me the Social Publishing application available on iPhone now launched on Android

By | September 9th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

Via.Me, the First App to Offer Photo, Video, Audio Filtering and Sharing to Multiple Social Networks, Is Now Available on Android Via.me is a social media publishing platform created by RadiumOne Labs that has been available on iTunes for Apple iPhone users for over 5 months which has proved very popular by its 1 millions users. And now on September the 4th RadiumOne introduced Via.me for Android on Google play. Even though I'd heard about Via.me I'd not actually downloaded it yet as I already use the very popular instagram and tumblr, and thought Via.me was just a copy of instagram - I had seen someone call the app instagram on steroids and heard people say not another Social Network.  Via.me themselves say that you can use it create your own story board, by creating a personal story or the story of your brand - so there I thought similar to Pinterest.  However after hearing that the application was now launched on Android, I realised it was getting very popular and I thought it was time to try it out.  And I'm so glad I [...]

Need an honest opinion? Ask Opinionaided.

By | November 12th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Opinionaided is a mobile social networking application designed for asking opinions and advice to a large community in realtime.   Similar to Quora (which came after)  but from what I've seen it seems that this one is more used by the younger generation for questions such as.. Do you like my new hairstyle?  or Am I good-looking  -  where as Quora is more for business type questions I find.  However you can filter these questions out and just go to a specific topic. Opinionaided was launched in 2010 by founder Dan Kurani and co-founders Mike Melli and Matt Holloway and already has many users. Originally for iphone, ipod, and iPad, but is now available on Android and Online. The interesting thing about Opinionaided is the phenomenal response rate - the first time I used it I asked a pretty lame question and within seconds I had 10 answers!  What networking site can you say that about? Its very easy to use there are five buttons at the bottom of the screen which are Home - Where you get two options - Ask [...]
