If you work for a major company, there’s a good shot somewhere in your employee handbook is a prohibition against blogging, facebooking or twittering about your employer. Most companies take a dim view of employees taking their internal grievances to the masses, no doubt distrusting how quickly viral news spreads around the web. Of course, [...]
These days everything is “social.” CNN wants me to know how many people have “liked” an article, the New York Times has embraced Twitter, and you don’t even need to go on TV to get your 15 minutes of fame … now all you need to do is cause a controversy on the internet! Strike [...]
Vlogging is a very popular activity these days. If you’re not familiar with it, the process involves recording a video-diary of your life and then posting it online for the world to follow. It seems everywhere I look there’s someone who’s decided to record a portion of their life and post it on the internet. [...]
I don’t love Facebook. I use it but I don’t love it. It is too open for my tastes… even with the privacy features cranked up. I like Twitter and find myself using it more and more. It is open but feels like there is more, or at least different, control you can have on [...]
The very outspoken Terrell Owens sent a Tweet out moments before this Sunday’s game where he and the Cincinnati Bengals were set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the Tweet T.O. stated that a fan that was wearing his jersey would be getting a football signed by himself and Chad Ochocinco. The message was posted [...]

Don’t know who Teresa is? Read on… Teresa Guidice is one of the “stars” of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. While I try to avoid tv [...]
I love social media. I tweet. I run a website. I have a Facebook page. Gear Diary has two Facebook pages. But sometimes … sometimes it just goes too far. Sometimes people lose site of the public nature of these things … or maybe it is just that they don’t use good judgment. Regardless of the reasons, [...]
It seems Twittering might have put Chicago chef Rick Bayless in trouble with the White House. Bayless, who is the Chef at Chicago’s Frontera Grill and Topolobampo, is in Washington, D.C. to prepare Wednesday night’s State Dinner to honor Mexican President Felipe Calderon. Chef Bayless was so excited about the trip he started tweeting about it Monday. But the chef’s tweets abruptly [...]
Judie: Last year Julie Strietelmeier and I took a look at the Logitech Squeezebox Boom, both here and on The Gadgeteer, and our general consensus was that we both enjoyed using it. As a matter of fact, I liked using mine so much that I eventually sprung for a streaming Sirius subscription as well as [...]

If you are over the age of 18, and you don’t mind answering simple questions about your motivations and expectations from Twitter usage, you’d be doing your good deed for the day if you clicked the [...]
I was a slow comer into the realm of social networking. It took me a while to get the hang of using MySpace, and then Twitter, and afterward, Facebook. I admit to being on Facebook more than I should some days. I am addicted to a few of the games there, Mafia Wars and Castle [...]
The song “We Are the World” was originally recorded in 1985 as part of an effort to raise money and awareness for African famine relief.
