Don’t forget St. Patrick’s Day

March 3rd, 2011 No comments »

Sure, beer is great on its own. But what better way to enjoy a cold draught of ale on a raucous St. Patrick’s Day by wrapping it in an emerald green The Original KOOZIE® Can Kooler? Your party will be the pride of the Irish when every bottle is tightly nestled inside a festive KOOZIE® can cooler. The sky’s the limit: you can go from a great celebration on each KOOZIE® can cooler, covered in rosy-cheeked leprechauns, to a simple four-leaf clover with a nice message of goodwill stamped underneath. The luck of the Irish will be with you all year ‘round either way. Either way, enjoy your neoprene KOOZIE®s can coolers.

The Facebook Five. Yes, there is a group called the Facebook Five, prison guards who are in trouble for “unauthorized” cyber exchanges about their superiors. You have to be wary of the Facebook Five.

TGI Friday’s Give them credit. They did a Social Media campaign with “Woody” to give a way burgers, unfortunately it took off a little more than they thought it would. Oh well. TGIF’s scrambled and is playing catch up, watch to learn more.

Facebook by the numbers. Startling facts. 6 billion minutes spent on Facebook each day. 14 million videos uploaded each month. 45 million active groups each month including. http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=124680542080&ref=ts

Burglars use Facebook and Twitter. Interesting that thieves are using Social Media to see what you have, and how to get it. So the deal is, you post on Facebook, you are going out of town, you have also posted pictures of your Plasma TV. Burglars put 2 and 2 together and concoct a heist.

The Republican Party is playing catch up with Social Media, using Twitter and Facebook, they are learning how to connect. Listen to the podcast for commentary.

Arrested for eating Iguana? Yep. a couple of folks were “smart” enough to cook up Iguana “read Illegal” and post it on their Facebook pages. Bad idea.

Fun and inspiring people to follow on Twitter? How about Demi Moore, Punky Brewster, Pete Carroll and Tony Robbins. We discuss them all. Don’t forget the beautiful Kathy Ireland, now a motivator.

Adventures in Social Media has named Leo Laporte of Leoville and This Week in Tech, and the Tech Guy as their Social Guru of the week, learn more about Leo.

Facebook grew twice as fast as Twitter in July was discussed, the speed of the growth of Facebook is something to notice, and Facebook is the 4th largest site in the world according to the Washington Post.

The Feds, meaning Obama and his gang used Facebook, Twitter and Youtube to garner public opinion on their ill advised Air Force One photo op flyover of Manhattan. Good use of Social Media? We think so.

Facebook found the Bicycle Thief. ABC News reported the story of the bicycle stolen in Brooklyn, and recovered. Good feel good story here.

A lady has her laptop stolen, and the thief has the nerve to taunt her on her OWN Facebook account. Hilarious story, of a thief with a sense of humor.

How about some funny Facebook terms. Face-Brag, Face-Googles, Twitface and more. Don’t be one of these. See the video for full explanations of all the above.

Most Twitter Feeds Just Nonsense. Really? All those tweets are not absolutely time sensitive and crucial to your day to day lives? The numbers are not too surprising.

The show talks about a couple who met on Facebook who are now getting married who have the exact same name, the show some of the funniest bits on the internet, and a great video of the week.
