How To Use Social Media, Effectively

Jason Hiner from ZDNet wrote a compelling article on how we should use different social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. He argues that we should treat different social platforms much like we would treat our own kids. Rather than parenting each child in the exact same way, Hiner notes that it is often best to treat each kid a bit differently and adhere to their individual strengths and weaknesses. Same goes for Social, according to him. Social Media is powerful, it’s growing, it’s now. Rather than cross-posting in Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Foursquare, Hiner thinks it is best to post in such a way that is optimal for each social platform.

New Google Video-On-Demand Service Arriving Next Week!

What do you think about Netflix? I’ve used Netflix on and off for a number of years but have never been that thrilled with the service. I will admit that it is cool to be able to rent older classics or new releases that you may have not had the time to see in the theaters, but overall I wasn’t very impressed.

Do you enjoy streaming movies and programs through Netflix via your Xbox360? Are you tired of having to sit at your desktop computer to enjoy Hulu’s digital content? Almost immediately after Microsoft launched its Xbox360 update, adding Kinect support for the Netflix user interface, Electronista found image leaks of the new Hulu Plus UI. The images were posted by Joystiq and show Hulu Plus to have similar functionality to the current Netflix streaming service.

Once users point to the appropriate icon, they will be taken to a rotating menu that follows a familiar theme many have seen with Netflix on the Xbox Dashboard. With the new menus, users are able to navigate through their favorites shows via the unique video queue. Instead of using a typical controller to browse, players will be able to use hand movements as the Hulu Plus module recognizes hand gesture movements.

Hulu’s Plot For World Domination

Although Hulu was originally met with skepticism when they launched their paid subscription service, Hulu Plus, Hulu’s price drop towards the end of 2010 has been a strategic move on the company’s part. In a blog post summarizing the company’s results for Q1, 2011, Jason Kilar (CEO of Hulu) said that Hulu is on track to have over…
