HOW TO: 10 Tips to Save Your Relationships Online

Nothing is pure evil, and I am a firm believer of this.

Although social media can definitely cause you to lose your job, become a victim of revenge and can even be the reason why you lose friends, I see that in return, social media can gear you up to help in a cause or even save a relationship!

12 World Cup Tweeps You #MustFollow

Twitter is certainly jumping on the World Cup bandwagon, they even added a new theme to celebrate the occasion. You can add it by going to Settings > Design, and choosing the “South Africa 2010″ theme. But Twitter will certainly be an important source of updates for the world cup to the extent that some teams like Spanish and the Dutch have banned their players from using it. A further proof was provided on how the selection of Robbie Findley to the US soccer team instantly became a trending topic on Twitter, even though the whole thing is a surprise it wasn’t a big deal at all.

5 Simple Ways to Protect Your Privacy On Facebook

Now those privacy zealots are always bashing Facebook and its users for not valuing their privacy, and calling on everyone on the web to go back to their cocoon and place a big firewall seal on their information and lives. But let us face it, majority of the people on the internet like their Facebook and social media and like using it. Those privacy pundits are just political motivated scare mongers. Those guys are up there on wing-nut scale with Teabaggers, Truthers, Birthers and Sarah Palin but there must be some bipartisan middle ground between the privacy zealots and Zuckman’s total agnosticism to privacy.
