With the growth of Twitter over the last few years and it’s use as a real time news feed, it has become one of the largest “social media” companies out there. Its importance with communication is undeniable. If you’ve ever wondered how the use of Twitter varies from state to state, check out this graphic.
I feel like watching my local news programs is like hanging out with my grandparents. You would think these people grew up in the 1940’s and never got with the times. The easily noticed errors and blunders just slip right by them. They seem so clueless at times. I wonder how they get by in...
Ever since new technologies have been invented there has been speculation on their success. There will always be naysayers and haters. Some though are more vocal than others. Some have been right in their assertions while others have been pitifully wrong. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
Most all of us use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google and Twitter on a daily basis. But have you ever wondered exactly how the majority of the US goes about their time online, or who stacks up the most clicks? Check out this cool graphic which breaks it all down.
Somehow yet another huge blunder has gotten by the producers of a local news program. The people over at Greenbay’s NBC 26 need to do a little better with their image gathering. My guess is that some intern went quickly to Google Images, nabbed the first photo that looked right for the piece (without giving...
As much as 42 million women use social media sites a least once a week. That is a huge huge number. And with most of them spending more and more time and money online, it’s good to know where to find them. Here is a great graphic that will give you some insight into where...
Apparently Facebook has the webs largest collection of photos, even beating out Flickr (I’m a little skeptical about this) and Photobucket. Needless to say, a lot of people are posting pictures to their profiles. Photo discovery app Pixable analyzed nearly 500,000 of its users’ profiles to come up with some statistics about the photos we choose to...
In yet another blunder for FOX News, last night they used a photo of Tina Fey from an SNL skit of former Governor Sarah Palin during a report. The report was on the Palin’s statement that she was 50/50 on running for president in 2012…let’s just say that I’d be more apt to vote in...
With the recent acquisition of Skype by Microsoft (for $8.5 Billion!) there has been quite a lot of hubbub about how it will be implemented and used. It’s been a long time coming for the video and chat behemoth. If you’ve ever wondered where it all began and how they got to where they are now, wonder...
This reporter for FOX News might want to reconsider his wording for this particular story. Seems almost like he snuck that one in on purpose. What do you think? It still blows me away, all the errors and blunders that are made by professional news journalists. You’d imagine that with being on live TV every...
