I got a really weird email from a friend on Facebook: it was just a Web site URL and when I went to it, I got a warning message that it was an “unsafe” and that it’d been blocked. What the heck? What’s going on?
I have been honing my computer skills to try and make some money and start a business. The only problem is i seem to be having troubles finding jobs. Pretty much I’m doing free computer diagnostic. I pick up the computer, diagnose every aspect of how its working all for free. After that I contact the customer and discuss the problem(s) they may be having and discuss were to go with it.
This is a really good calling for me and I’m really good at it, not to mention I love doing it. So pretty much what I’m wondering is if you have any insight on how to promote my business and get some new clients. Keep in mind I’m only 22 and don’t have money for advertising and such.
I’ve been experimenting with a variety of different Twitter clients on my Mac, and while I’d been stuck for a while on Twhirl I’ve recently switched to the beta of Seesmic Desktop a few weeks ago. Until a few days ago when a few friends encouraged me to try Nambu. Worked pretty well, but the Seesmic team mailed me a notice about an update to its Seesmic Desktop client that includes Facebook integration. Nice. I want it. So I updated the client and switched back.
Very nicely done! Right now, it’s my favorite Twitter client and a very convenient way to stay in touch with what’s going on in the world of Facebook.
Let me show you how it all looks…
In his sermon last weekend, our pastor talked briefly about the dangers of our teen children sexting. He didn’t go into it and I’ve no clue what it’s all about, but I want to know more about sexting before I talk with her so I don’t seem completely clueless. Help?
In previous blog entries (see How do I sponsor searches on Google? and Advertising cannot be your only online marketing channel), I’ve talked about how to use paid services to promote your business online, focusing specifically on Google Adwords and how it lets your company appear as “sponsored” results on a search page. Then we talked last week about the distressingly ephemeral nature of paid advertising and explored examples of how mindshare rapidly declines once you stop paying.
The solution to the dilemma, the path to sustained visibility in the online world, is to understand the gestalt of Google, if you will, the core concept behind modern Internet search engines. Once you understand how they work, you’ll see how you can rethink your online presence to maximize results without paying the proverbial arm and a leg.
In a word: content.
Now that I have a fair number of friends on Facebook, I’m wondering what I need to do so that I don’t see the status updates in my newsfeed from the more, uhm, lame of my friends. I don’t want to unfriend them, I just don’t want their marketing drivel or personal junk in my news feed. Is there a way to do that in the new Facebook UI?
