Ello: beautiful, ad-free and hard to navigate

By Lindsay McComb / Posted 10.7.2014 / In Business, Social Media, Reviews / 0 comments

Based on what I’ve been reading around the Interwebs, most people are expecting one or more of the following things from the new social network, Ello. 1.

I have a lot of calendars - work, personal, family. Some are Google calendars, some are iCal. I’ve spent hours trying to get them all synched up on my iPhone (link) but after downloading Sunrise, I can say with very little hyperbole that my life has been revolutionized.

Is the social media bubble about to pop?

By David Precht / Posted 5.28.2013 / In Business, Social Media / 3 comments

We find ourselves at the intersection of unqualified people who get where social media is going, and over-qualified people who still don't get it. There's a massive shift, and it seems like the social media manager bubble is due to pop. And loudly.

The power of social media: Reporting the news

By David Precht / Posted 5.23.2013 / In Business, Social Media / 0 comments

A recent incident in Woolwich, England is further confirmation that social media reporting is the norm. Word of the event broke on Twitter. Instant news. Instant reporting. Instantly connecting everyone. Twitter isn't the future of news, Twitter is the present.

Their recent (less than desirable) appearance on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares sparked some serious social media backlash. But their lashing back at the criticism serves as a perfect example of what NOT to do.

Twitter Music is a site/app that allows users of Twitter to follow their favorite artists, get recommendations for new artists, see what people on Twitter are listening to and can integrate with Spotify or Rdio. You can listen to trending music, all in a slick interface. The bad news? You have to follow your favorite artists on Twitter.
