You have one friend request – Add your boss as a friend?

Let’s face it – regardless of whether you are the summer intern, the manager, or the CEO of your organization, everyone stares out into the same social media minefield and wonders about the etiquette and appropriateness of connecting with work colleagues online.

Best of Boston

Many small businesses make the same mistake when it comes to social media – they tend to bombard followers with an endless stream of advertising messages, which followers fail to engage with. Here are a few companies near BC that are using Facebook, Instagram, and Yelp effectively.

Digital Diplomacy

The first Twitter President is testing the rules of Social Media Diplomacy, but the world is shrinking and there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about how countries, Governments, and their citizens will interact online in the future.

Coffee, Watches & Kylie Jenner: Building a Brand with Social Media

I am fascinated by brands who get Social Media right. I might not be a customer or a frequent customer yet, but I still follow them – they make my insta feed look pretty and their funny (punny?) tweets make me smile – and I am sure I am not alone in this. What fascinates […]

Podcasts – Pay to Play

The podcast industry is changing and someday we will look back in disbelief at the decade where endless amounts of high quality content was accessible at virtually no cost to the consumer.

Politics In Transition: What happens to @POTUS now that there’s a new president?

Where do all the president’s tweets and facebook posts go?

Twitter’s Darkside Comes to BC

I was born and raised by media junkies.  Even before social media became a main source for breaking news, my parents were constantly consuming information on the radio, the television, and the newspaper and from sources from Bloomberg and CNN to ESPN and Yahoo Finance.  I was raised to always be in the know and […]

Twitter’s 140-Character Limit: Cage or Crown?

As of September 19th, Twitter has ~sort of~ loosened its reins on the 140 character limit. You can now add photos, videos, GIFs, polls, and quote tweets without it counting towards the contested character count. Although your favorite David Foster Wallace quote probably still won’t fit within the constraints, this development is important in light of Twitter’s potential acquisition […]

One Tweet at a Time

Twitter has been in the news a lot lately for its possible takeover, live streaming, changing character limits, etc. Seeing so many things changing with Twitter, I started to wonder what it is about this platform that keeps me coming back to it. I think the reason Twitter is my social media platform of choice is […]

Politics v. Social Media

Facebook is not the place for politics.  That is exactly how my political views on Facebook read.  People that know me very well find this funny, as I am very opinionated when it comes to Politics and can always hold my own in political debates.  But to me, Social Media is different.  I tell myself […]

Posted Up In Hillside

“When I was abroad and didn’t have wifi for one or two days, I would miss so many Instagrams” my friend Christina mused. We sat in Hillside with our New England Classics in one hand and our phones in the other. “And then when I would finally get wifi,” she continued, her eyes bulging, “I […]

Initial Thoughts on Social Media

My views on Social Media vary drastically, depending on which lens I am looking through. Two of these lenses that immediately come to mind are that of myself, and a business. My View As an individual, I do not like what social media does to people. We’ve all seen the pictures: at sporting events… at concerts… at […]

Initial Thoughts

Social media is something that whether we would want to admit it or not has come to run our lives.  Whether you are a child of the “tech generation” brought up by each detail of emerging gadgets, or you are a “baby boomer” trying to understand the technology growth over the years, social media that […]

I Hate Social Media

(well not really.) I do; however, hate some of the consequences of social media. The one I hate the most? Phones at the dinner table. While social media is not the only reason there has been an uptick in the amount of phones at dinner table, it plays a huge part. I love my family, […]

On an Ultralight Beam- This Is Everything

One of the biggest names in the entertainment world, and the star of my Twitter header, has recently taken to Twitter for self-promotion. He seems to be doing that in a rather, let’s say interesting, way, however. The internet has been on the edge of its seat and constantly refreshing their feeds to see what […]
