With Foursquare (Gowalla and MyTown) getting a lot of press these days, I thought it was interesting to see Nike getting into the location based social networking game with Nike Grid. Using London telephone box to track a runner's progress at designated Nike branded locations, players run between two phoneboxes and punch in their unique user id number at each, logging their run and earning them… Continue
This great chart from Flowtown shows how companies in the Fortune 100 use social media sites like Twitter and FaceBook. This is just a subset of the whole infographic they produced. The complete picture is shown below.
Even if you’ve managed to turn off the invites, there’s no ignoring Farmville addicts and their incessant rambling about “harvests” and “crops;” seriously, No One Cares About Your Farm. Now on a tshirt.
Now if this isn't a sign of the times I don't know what is! When Vitamin Water asked Facebook users to create a new flavor, could we have guessed that it would be called Connect? A black cherry-lime flavor drink made with caffeine and 8 key nutrients, Connect is the brainchild of Facebook user Sarah from Illinois. She's awarded the nice handsome sum of $5K for her… Continue
Wow, now this is an interesting way to get into social media. Estee Lauder, that make-up brand that your mom used to wear, is giving free make-overs and photo shoots so that you can have a prettier profile pic. Why? The brand is feeling a bit old and they want to feel more hip and modern. But what's the catch? The profile photos will include the Estee Lauder logo in… Continue

Pretty funny video on social media addiction. Best part? A subtle joke you'll get if you're one of the gajillion people on Facebook (it's around 1:06). "Matt, stop writing on the wall!" This video is an advertising campaign by Sony for their Vaio line of… Continue
One of the coolest and most interactive websites where people can pay tribute to the King of Pop has sprung up called the Eternal Moonwalk.

Ooo this should be interesting. MTV has created a new, funky character called ‘Cherry Girl’ who's part of MTVNI’s ongoing commitment to environmental issues through MTV Switch, a youth-focused, global, multiplatform campaign designed to inspire and promote environmental issues.
She's an impulsive character, who finds that her actions, which are seemingly… Continue

Let me begin by saying...I freakin love Stanton Warriors. If this one dj group that consistently exceeds my expectations, that can bring down the house with the sickest beats you've ever heard...it's gotta be Stanton Warriors. I've now seen them live a handful of times and each time I'm just blown away by not just their selection of music but how they can read… Continue

You have a lot of choices out there with social network sites. So first, I want to thank everyone in here for trusting in me, my brother or a friend, for joining the site without even seeing it.
I had lunch with my friend, Todd, a few weeks ago and we talked about social media. Never has there been a time like now, when information and ideas are being exchanged, in a blink of an eye. For some, that's scary - it's an unknown. But, for… Continue
