Remember those feelings you had when you were invited to a party, but when you got there you realised that everybody seemed to know everybody, except you? That’s probably the same feeling you had as you were staring at your blank Twitter timeline, just right after you sent your first Tweet, when it became apparent […]

If you’ve been living in London for a while and experienced the ‘joy‘ of taking the public transport, you would’ve already spotted the pattern, especially for the Bus Service. It’s not rare when you have to wait for a very long time for them to come to the Bus Stop (although it says on the […]

In my previous post, I discussed about the first things that we could do to follow people on Twitter.  In this second part of the series, I would like to touch on how we could follow people on Twitter by Recommendation. Recommendation is probably the best way to follow people on Twitter, especially when we […]

Jason Calacanis has this mailing list called Jason Nation that I am a subscriber of, and today on his latest email, he declared that his going to quit Facebook.  What is interesting for me is that, even though he practically slammed Zuckerberg and his Facebook, at the most recent TWIT podcast, when asked if he was […]

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t hung out at my local Buzz Joint for a while. No, it’s not because the onslaught of Scoble’s Buzzes, or the fact that I have to login to a different GMail account than the one I normally have to check it. It’s just that between Twitter, Facebook […]

Twitter is on a roll this month!  As a matter of fact it has scored a Hat-Trick on new features.  First with the Twitter List , and then with the new Retweet, and the third by enabling Geotagging. If you haven’t noticed yet, open your Twitter settings and you can find geotagging under Account -> […]

Are you confused with Twitter’s new Retweet feature? Don’t worry, many people do.  I was.  Or maybe you are one of the people who got upset when the new functionality was finally rolled out (albeit only to a limited number of people) ?  No worry, I did too. People say that it’s always hard for […]
