They played this really funny video at the Closing Keynote of Blogworld and New Media Expo 2010. I couldn’t stop laughing! I especially loved the part where Mark Malkoff was distracting Miss Destructo while she was blogging. How did she keep that straight face?! Watch and you’ll see! ;) Good times at Blogworld!

Social Networks: How to Integrate Them

October 30, 2009 by  
Filed under Social Networking, Tips and Tutorials

This blog post is in response to a question someone at a University asked me:

Question: I have set-up/configured our Facebook, Twitter, and Blog this week. We are in the process of posting content to each, but I was hoping you could go over a few things with me. Mainly, how to integrate the 3 so that we don’t have to constantly update all 3 sites? And also, based on your experience, are there any general settings in each dealing with user interactivity that we should enable/disable?

Answer: I would first start with integrating Twitter into Facebook, instead of the other way around. The reason is because I think students are more familiar with the Facebook interface than Twitter.

How to make your Facebook posts go to Twitter
facebook-to-twitter

  1. In a browser, log into Twitter.
  2. In another tab in the browser, go to Facebook.com/Twitter. You will see your Facebook page and a button that says “Link to Twitter.”
  3. Click on the “Link to Twitter” button
  4. It’ll take you back to Twitter, prompting “An application would like to connect to your account.”
  5. Click on “Allow.”

Plurk

Filed under Links and Resources

I signed up for a new website yesterday called Plurk. My first thought when I tried it out was this is posting 140 characters Twitter posts, on a Dipity Timeline, with responses like Pownce! It certainly does take a bit of getting use to, but highly fun! I recommend signing up and trying it. It might just be the next big thing in microblogging. ;)

I tend to post quirky and random stuff here because it’s fun. :) The only thing I don’t like about Plurk right now is the logo of the headless animal. But that image is talked about so much, that I’m starting to think they did the right thing!

Be sure to follow safe plurking habits! Don’t plurk to strangers! :) But looks like the only rule I followed was #10 — have fun!

Blogging as a Requirement

How interesting… there are positions that require WordPress knowledge now.

I remember when I started blogging. This was the order of the software I used: Blogger, Greymatter, b2 (cafelog), Geeklog, Xanga, Livejournal, Tabulas, Vox, and now only WordPress and Twitter.

Do you remember any of these? The evolution of blogging software has been an amazing journey. ;)
