[Blog] Cliqly in Alpha: Visual Interface, Filters for Top Tech News
tried searches for many top tech terms, from "apple" to "google", "Android", "t-mobile" and blogs like Engadget and TechCrunch , all of which returned multiple results, clickable to the main original link. Curated news sites are so prevalent, it seems practically everybody has one. With simple tools like paper.li and others, you can even have them automatically generated from the social connections you have on Twitter and other networks. But there's still room for ingenious alternatives that play with highly visual layouts, filters, search and personalization. But it's early days.

[Blog] When Things Matter More than People
While still the stuff of social media expert conversations, marketing blogs seem repetitive, and industry publications like em>Advertising Age are moving on. The Internet of Things is beginning to drive the tech industry and soon the marketing and media sector. You need look no further than this year’s CES to see the trend unfold. At the same time, social media is losing luster in the eyes of traditional technologists and marketers. Before we get into that, let’s discuss the Internet of Things trend. And with good reason. The Social Star Loses Luster. What?!? Far from it.

To try to fit this into a single blog post is too aggressive. It is becoming crystal clear to anyone who is watching that Facebook has a goal.

If you don’t see that, you’re either not paying attention or you’ve been brainwashed by pokes and CityVille.

Ever wonder how to manage the constant flux of customer service complaints (or praises) via social media? After years of trial and error, I’m fairly certain I’ve perfected the tactic from a low-cost perspective. And I want to help you do the same.
