LinkedIn SubGroups

Today I got an email from LinkedIn announcing that they will be adding subgroups! We’re happy to announce that later this week we are launching a long-requested feature for group managers: the ability to create subgroups. Subgroups are like a break-out session at a conference. They enable you to create more focused areas than in the main group. Also, by creating and inviting members into subgroups, you can now send  [ Read More ]

Usernames for Facebook Pages

Today we are all able to get usernames for our Facebook profiles. I snagged my usual username – which means that you can now access my profile by going to My problem is that you can’t get a name for your Facebook pages unless you have 1000 fans!! That’s insane – most libraries aren’t going to have that many fans – so that means they’re going to have to  [ Read More ]

Phonebook on Facebook

Did you know that you had a phone book on Facebook? I didn’t I have been playing with my new Blackberry Storm and updating my contacts and one thing I found was that I could link my contacts to Facebook friends and ask for phone numbers.

My Geek Chart

I just found Geek Chart via Lifehacker and thought I’d give it a whirl. Here’s my Geek Chart: Nicole’s Geek Chart It shows where I share the most online – I find it surprising – I would think that Flickr would be the biggest chunk – not Delicious – but I guess it makes sense. According to Geek Chart: This chart shows the last 30 days of your activity on  [ Read More ]

New FriendFeed

I didn’t have time in the last month to test out the new FriendFeed interface – and now it looks like it’s the only interface. FriendFeed has updated its look and feel. Not sure what I think – not sure I care too much But I thought I’d share it with you all anyway in case you feel strongly one way or the other. Technorati Tags: friendfeed

Facebook Groups for Family

What a great idea! Facebook has released private groups for family only. This way you can keep in touch with your family over Facebook without your entire friends list knowing what you’re talking about. There’s a new landing page on Facebook that’s designed to get families involved in sharing updates, photos, and videos on the social network. The extended family group invite page, available here, lets you create a private  [ Read More ]

For that class, I have a short reading list I give attendees that I want to share with you all and ask for recommendations for additions/changes.

New Facebook … again?

Didn’t we just do this? I just finished updating my Facebook guide and class to match the last Facebook update and now there is yet another new Facebook facelift. Change is good – and redesigns are necessary – but when there is so much going on on Facebook it’s hard to keep up with all of my content when the layout keeps changing on me. If you’re not seeing the  [ Read More ]
