Facebook 101

Yesterday I found 2 of my cousins on Facebook, only to find that they had no idea how they got on Facebook in the first place I started looking for tutorials that started with the very basics, but didn’t find anything up to my standards so I started my own Facebook 101 guide. Now that the rough draft is done, I’m thinking of ways to organize it better and what  [ Read More ]

Help a Library Student

I got this in my email and thought I’d share with you all: Hello! My name is Sarah Hammond and I am conducting some research in fulfilment of my MA in Librarianship at the University of Sheffield. I am interested in how public libraries and librarians feel about the use of so-called social networking websites and software as a tool for the library and its various functions. I am interested  [ Read More ]

Scrabble wins

It looks like after months of hearing that Scrabulous was in danger of being removed from Facebook, it looks like Scrabble has won: Not too long after Scrabble has been added to Facebook as an app (a very slow annoying app – I might add) it looks like Scrabulous has been disabled Technorati Tags: scrabulous, scrabble, facebook

Facebook Blog Networks

A new (or new to me) Facebook App makes perfect sense for me to announce here – Facebook Blog Networks. This app lets you claim your own blogs and then add the blogs you read to your network.

How to be productive & social

This from Lifehacker: Editor: We asked self-described social media junkie Steve Rubel for his tips on how to participate in online social sites like Twitter and FriendFeed without losing your entire workday. Here’s what he said. Social media is the equivalent of digital food. It’s nourishing, tasty and, for many of us, necessary. However, consume too much and you can get sidetracked and create larger consequences. The good news is  [ Read More ]

Facebook – No Longer #2

This from TechCrunch: It was sort of inevitable given Facebook’s monster growth over the last few years, but April 2008 was the milestone: Facebook officially caught up to MySpace in terms of unique monthly worldwide visitors, according to data released by Comscore … Both services are attracting around 115 million people to their respective sites each month. I’ve been telling those who attend my class to not even bother with  [ Read More ]

Facebook Chat

Facebook now has chat (if you hadn’t heard already). I don’t use it much because it means going to Facebook and keeping it open. Up til now I had only heard about one app that let you chat on Facebook – and that’s Digsby – but it doesn’t have an app for Mac yet. So I thought I’d look around and see what I could find. It turns out that  [ Read More ]

LinkedIn Group Search

Keeping my LinkedIn Profile up to date is very important to me. This is why it’s so annoying that I can’t seem to search for groups on LinkedIn that I belong to – what is taking them so long?? Today I found a Google Custom Search that lets you search LinkedIn Groups! There are thousands of groups to join on LinkedIn. However, LinkedIn does not yet have a “group search”  [ Read More ]
