Social Media Report

Facebook Places on the iPad

Facebook - PlacesI'm in the middle of writing a couple of books about social media, and I'm up on Facebook almost all the time. It's an incredibly feature-rich environment—so much so, that it's almost impossible to describe it all in a book, let alone a 700 word article. In this edition of Social Media Report, I'm going to focus on one specific feature of Facebook—Places. If you want a thorough understanding of Places, take a look at Facebook's description (facebook.com/places) or check out my new book (see my author's bio).

Should I upgrade my iPhone and iPad?

image

I really can't live without my iPhone and iPad. And as a professional publisher, writer and editor, I pride myself in always having, and knowing about, the latest gear.

While enjoying sushi and drinks with a friend the other night, she let me play with her new Android phone that she had just picked up that day to replace here aging Blackberry.  I've been an iPhone user since day three of the first iteration, and I currently carry an iPhone 4 for daily use.  In the nearly four years that I've been using Apple's handset, it may have been lost on me that not everyone experiences the polished user experience that iPhone users have grown accustomed to.  She had a lower end LG handset powered by Android and moments after launching the browser, I noticed the "jaggy" scrolling.

How to Deploy Apps at Work

Understanding and using the options for app distribution

As a consumer, finding apps is really simple—go to the App Store. However, it isn’t always so straightforward for businesses. There are multiple ways for a company to let its employees access apps that help them do their jobs more efficiently and effectively. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.


Use App Store self-service

Cloud-based solutions give employees access to the systems and data they need to be productive when they’re on the go. Let’s say that a company wants to deploy a cloud-based solution like Box.net or Salesforce.com. Since these and other cloud-based business solutions have apps in the App Store, the company can direct their workers to download those apps from the App Store.
