Humongo visits Savannah

Savannah was lucky enough to be an official stop on the two-week long, Humongo Nation Tour. Darryl, of Humongo, is the leading force of this rolling celebration of creativity. Being a social media junkie and working at SCAD I made it my summer goal to meet the team in real life. After a meeting and a few emails it was going to be so. Humongo was going to be visiting SCAD, my alma mater. Read more »

The Golden Rules of Social Media

10 Golden Rules of Social Media

After my recent post on The Rules of Twitter, I have decided to search the net for some useful rules or guidelines to live by in the social media ring. The Golden Rule term can be defined as, “an ethical code that states one has a right to just treatment, and a responsibility to ensure justice for others”.

The more and more our lives become entangled in the web, the more we need to show constraint and compassion for the flow of content and ideas. Read more »

The Rules of Twitter

A very popular social media trend right now is to discuss in length all about  the growing pains of everyday problems users are facing with Facebook on the Twitter platform.

When to use “Off The Grid” on Foursquare

There are two concepts in regards to “Off the Grid”. The foursquare concept is as follows: If you turn all of the little on/off switches to off (on the check in screen, they say who to share with) you’ll be off the grid. Off the grid means you’re hiding your location from the world. Why would you want to check in “off the grid?” You could be on a date, out to dinner with your parents, or someplace you don’t want people to know about; all while still wanting to check in to earn badges and see your check-ins later in your history page (which will include your own private, “off the grid” check-ins).
