Grow Your Business With LinkedIn

Posted by on in Technology

b2ap3_thumbnail_linkedin_good_for_networking_400.jpgLinkedIn is not only useful for the unemployed, but is also a great tool for business owners to connect with one-another. In general, social media can be a wonderful tool to grow your business. But Facebook might be a bit too social for some to take seriously, and Twitter is really only great for short announcements due to their tweet character limit. LinkedIn remains as one of the more purely work-related social media outlets. By utilizing LinkedIn as a business tool, you can jumpstart the way your company communicates both internally and externally.

The History of Social Networking

Posted by on in IT Blog

b2ap3_thumbnail_SocialMedia400.jpgThe late Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens once famously stated that the "internet is not something that you can just dump something on. It's not a big truck.

An Overview of Your Social Networking Options

Posted by on in IT Blog

b2ap3_thumbnail_SocialMedia86.jpgSocial Media can be likened to vampires in the media. Both are loved by teenage girls, and like vampire characters, it seems like there are now too many social medias to keep track of. Just like you don't have to read Twilight to know that it's lame, it's also unnecessary to have your business involved with every social media out there. Although, there are several social media sites that can be utilized as part of a valuable marketing strategy.

b2ap3_thumbnail_facebookfamily616.jpgThe core idea behind social media is that it is a technology used to connect people. As people from all over the world embrace using social media, new and complex dynamics are added that turn social media into much more than a tool used to poke a friend. One of the most complex people groups is the modern family; and when entire families adopt social media, all the weird dynamics of family relationships are now posted for the world to see. We will attempt to analyze these new social media family dynamics, starting with the bad, and then the ugly, and eventually making our way to the good.

Posted by on in IT Blog

Some people are just asking to have their identities stolen. If your password is personal and simple, written down next to your computer, used on multiple sites, and shared with others; then you might as well leave your car unlocked, in the bad part of town, with your keys in the ignition, and your life savings in the back seat.
