via learn.linkedin.com I was just playing around with LinkedIn and noticed the changes to groups. This had passed me by. I want to start getting into the LinkedIn group discussions a bit more. Whenever I tell people about social networks, LinkedIn always crops up. People like it. It seems solid, and professional and, unlike certain … Continue reading Is the LinkedIn Groups refurb another attempt to get onto the Twitter bandwagon?
Today I actually used Facebook for something. My partner wanted to find women's networking groups online, and I suggested Facebook. Of course, she didn't listen to me so I decided to have a look myself. Immediately, I came up against a problem. I wanted to search for groups in London, but couldn't find an easy … Continue reading Advanced Search: Facebook gets it slightly wrong again
I've been playing around with Posterous recently. It's stunningly quick and easy. This is in no small part down to the way you use it. You email your posts.

So last Wednesday I was at Measurement Camp, this time in the swanky offices of Dare Digital. The format is still evolving under the laid-back yet effective stewardship of Will McInnes (check out his survey, it's hilarious), so this time we had a couple of presentations from past projects, then some quicker breakouts in which … Continue reading Measurement Camp, the BBC, and The Next Big Thing
One issue I keep coming across lately is how to save money using social media. This is a big topic, one that relates to so many others from measuring social media through to monetising it. But every little helps, as they say, and through the miracle of RSS you can make your content work harder … Continue reading Bookmark, tweet and blog at the same time with only two hands and one head
Influence - it's a tough thing to measure, especially when it all depends on who's linking to whom, and whether their behaviour has changed in any way. So if you don't have access to several thousand pounds and a server farm to track this, you can get an idea of influence by studying ubiquity, that … Continue reading HowSociable can you go?
