Have you heard the term, "net neutrality," in the news recently? I admit, this topic only recently crossed my radar since I usually focus more on social media, blogging, and digital marketing articles.
It turns out that net neutrality actually has huge implications for folks like myself who rely heavily on the Internet for writing, research and online marketing. With its potential impact on Internet carriers and the millions of people who access the Internet, net neutrality must not be ignored.
What is it?
Social Media Club was born in 2006 to expand digital media literacy, promote standard technologies, encourage ethical behavior, and share best practices. We continue to insist that the social media landscape is not an echo chamber of self-reinforcing thoughts but one that is fueled by diversity of opinion and perspective.
Remember when Twitter was fun?
I joined Twitter in the first half of 2008 and quickly started enjoying meaningful conversations with people from all over the world. It was energizing. It was exciting. And it was unlike any other way to communicate.
I recently met PowerPoint.
This might seem ironic for a social media expert who spends half her life online, blogging and switching between various social media accounts.
Alas, it’s true. I just figured out PowerPoint to make some slides about myself for an important upcoming meeting. (Now, if you’ve been following me, you know the idea of talking about myself – much less formulating a PowerPoint presentation – gives me hives.)
I’d say mastering PowerPoint is like riding a bike. Or starting to tweet. You just need to get the hang of it and practice.
Now, there are still some things I’m not sure I can do yet. Like, write a script. Rather, I’ll use my slides as cue cards on what to say; there won’t be a prewritten script.
Most entrepreneurs know that registering a brand’s name is not something you do off the hook.
First, you think about your brand’s name in order to find the perfect one, the one that will be easily recognizable, remembered and will be meaningful to your target audience. Then, you hurry to register it to maker sure nobody else will use it. That’s for the basics.
Unfortunately, new entrepreneurs have ideas but the lack the basics. The kind of problem Pinterest is now experiencing in Europe. But this type of case highlights new habits.
