Startmail gave me two companion accounts to give away with the subscription. Rather than waste them by just forwarding the links to people who may not be tech savvy enough to use them, I figured I would post them to the blog, although I do think the service is great for those who are not tech savvy either.Read More
Yelp is at it again. They clearly don’t like bloggers, especially ones who refuse to participate in their Yelp programs, scamming small business’s out of thousands of dollars every year. A recent email from Yelp, which I found in the trash, states I will have to change my profile pic before I can talk to customers. Apparently they require a “REAL” photo of me. Really Yelp?
Most people I talked to about the new Messenger app were outraged that Facebook has access to everything on their phones so everyone is now a privacy expert and going around encouraging each other to delete the Facebook Messenger app.
“Privacy Experts” agree that the app has access to your camera, photo’s, your location data, everything you post to Facebook, all your contacts info and all your personal info which users themselves freely give up. How did this happen!?!?!?Read More
Not nearly as popular as the #ALSIceBucketChallenge, the #NoIceBucketChallenge will really make you think… Why am I pouring Ice Water over my head? Are we aware that the entire state of California is in a drought? Children in Africa have to walk 3 miles or more for their bucket of water? Hey, are we just doing this to get out of donating???Read More
I have been doing Social Media consulting with small business’s on Long Island for about 3 years now. There are many, many, many options for Digital Marketing and Yelp is just one of those options. The only problem with Yelp is that I have always been able to prove I cannot get a return on investment (ROI)
Really impressed with the pics I got from a recent walk thru of the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal this week. The Grand Central Apple store opened back in 2011. I have been here before but never realized how LARGE it is! I’ve read it’s the third biggest Apple Store. Apple employees state it’s the biggest in North America. At around 23,000 feet it’s pretty impressive!
