Blocked someone on Twitter? Maybe Not Completely.

So I was browsing my Twitter feed when I started to see a friend of mine tweet at someone I’ve blocked. (Yes, you can probably guess who it was that I’ve blocked on Twitter) We have a lot of mutual friends on social media, but I haven’t seen ANYTHING in a year. So I’m assuming

A Twitter User’s Take on Self Promotion

I’m the first to admit, I’m not a social networking guru. Though really- anyone who calls themselves a guru probably isn’t an actual expert. (I’m not an expert, but if I were, I would never call myself a guru) What I am is someone who has been on Twitter for 6 years now. Six years!

Is Klout Still Relevant?

In this space, I’ve talked about Klout’s change to their algorithm. For a lot of social media types, it’s been disastrous- since companies who hired them wanted to know their personal Klout scores to use as a gauge of effectiveness. Then it came out that Klout created shadow profiles for you if someone you’re connected

Fallout from allegations.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the troubling allegations coming out of Penn State. That Jerry Sandusky, an assistant coach, allegedly* sexually assaulted several children over the years- in Penn State properties. It was reported to college officials, and nothing was done to report the crime to police. Joe Paterno, Penn State’s revered coach was involved

It’s not you, it’s Klout.

If you’re on Twitter with a fairly geeky network, you’ve probably heard people moaning about their Klout scores changing. Klout is a site that gauges your influence over various social networks, and today they unveiled a new algorithm. For people with high scores, it wasn’t uncommon for them to drop as many as 20 points.

The Wired Mom: Social Networking Stuff.

First, there’s a repost going around Facebook that’s sort of overstating a new feature. Secondly, Twitter got a bit of a revamp- let’s call it New New Twitter (Which I guess would make it the Ramona of Twitter versions). But let’s go over Facebook first. ALL THE PHONE NUMBERS of your contacts are now on

The Wired Mom: What’s up with Twitter?

Yes, I am The Wired Mom. Not just because of my addiction to caffeine, but because I don’t seem to go anywhere without my phone or my laptop. Need I remind everyone of my birthday weekend, where TheBoy and I rejoiced because they had free wifi at our hotel? Anyways, I use Twitter. I joined

The Power of Social Networking

Wow, last week was a slow blogging week. Not intentional, I assure you. As I blogged, the little guy had a rough week, which meant that I had less computer time and mostly wanted to go straight to bed as soon as they were in bed. He seems to be doing better- either that or

You’re kidding right?

It can’t be Saturday already. It seems like it was just Monday, even though that was one of the longest weeks I’ve had in ages. The rundown- my oldest started the week with a cough, after a total of 7 days at preschool. It seems like it should be a record. He never spiked a
