Smartphones - Productivity Tool or Time-Suck?

I admit it. I must be the only techie person left on the planet who doesn't have a smartphone. I have a cell-phone, I've texted, and I've even accessed the Internet from my tiny, tiny phone for a desperate sports score check or weather scoop when traveling, but I don't have a shiny smartphone. Why? I haven't decided yet if it would be a productivity tool for my business or a simple, expensive, time-suck. ...more

More Research on Millennials and Social Media: Mobile's Hot, Twitter's Still Not

Pew Research took a look at teens and young adults and the trends in social media and mobile use among the youthful crowd. The catchword to identify this generation is "millennials," or the first generation to come of age in the new millennium. Pew first announced their findings on Twitter at @pewresearch earlier this month.

Google Buzz: Will the Privacy #FAIL Overshadow the Tool's Potential?

Over past few months Google has been trying to secure their spot not just as the go-to search engine, but as a real player in social media. Google Wave and the Google Nexus One phone were cool options to the norm and just last week Google unveiled yet another new social media tool: Google Buzz.

Online Comment Bashing

I wanted to really get to this topic. I myself, have been a victim of "comment bashing". When I wan on twitter the other night, I noticed I wasn't the only mom blogger that this was happening to.
