Too Many Social Networks … Too Little Time

It is a tough time to be an internet socialite these days. There are just way too many networks to keep up with and just not enough time to follow all those conversations that are going on all of them. Therefore, it was inevitable that someone would step up and introduce a website that help to make the socialite life a lot easier and allow them to streamline their social media profiles into one place.

We will be looking at 2 such tools which do this in two completely different ways and they have been picking up steam this past year and will probably hit the main stream, with 2 different target audiences.

Gizapage: Social Media Hub

Vanity is definitely in these days. People can get their vanity Urls on Facebook and vanity phone numbers from Google, and now Gizapage steps into the vanity game.



The 10 Commandments of Being a Good Netizen

Be an angel!

Be an angel!

Everyone aspires to be a good netizen, but it’s not an easy goal to achieve. To be beatified by the gods of the net, you will need to surf graciously and illuminate every spot on the web where you are present.

To achieve such lustrous status you need to follow the ten commandments of being a good netizen.

1. Thou shall be omnipresent

Having a blog with Facebook, Twitter, Friendfeed and Flickr accounts along with some forums and 2-3 email accounts is about the norm these days. To keep all your friends and contacts happy, you will need to keep everything fresh and updated, and that requires a lot of time and effort. To simplify the task you will have to aggregate your accounts and then consolidate your email accounts into one by using mail forwarding.

2. Thou shall not trust others to protect their privacy

Whether its Google, Facebook or any other company they will not be vigilant about protecting your privacy. So the user needs to be responsible for making sure his privacy is protected by reading about any changes, checking the news, or just making sure he has the correct settings to suit their needs.

When will Facebook realize that it won’t ever be “Twitter”?

Facebook is adding more and more Twitter functionalities each day. Why? Does Twitter pose a threat to Facebook or the other way around? Can they coexist? and does Facebook’s Twitter added features help the platform or hurt it?

New Ways of Sharing, Using FriendFeed & Diigo…

Like I always say “sharing is caring” and what better thing to share than your “great” findings and conversations on the web? Isn’t it wonderful to experience a less constipated mailbox not spammed by your friends links and jokes? While we all have become quite familiar with social networking and bookmarking tools such as Delicious and Stumble the following services just kick it up a notch.
