Social Media Aggregators Take Businesses To The Next Level

The critical importance that social media currently plays in the lives of hundreds of thousands of smaller or larger companies all over the globe is incommensurable. Not only does the use of proper social media tools and apps help emerging businesses take advantage of online visibility, but it can also aid existing companies bounce two or three stories up faster than their managers could imagine was possible.

Social media aggregators stand for the generic name given to the array of popular social network services everyone is using right now. These aggregators play the role of important information collectors. They are responsible for pulling together viable social media information into just one location. Companies using these aggregators get to keep informed on the type of products and new service offerings their potential prospects might be looking for.

They get to rely their decisions on complex actions that involve RSS feeds featured on several social networks at a time, collect new friends and followers and turn them into clients, combine bookmarks and accurately consolidate messages, keep track of the times their company’s name is mentioned in the online environment and do all this with the help of some special social media tools and widgets they can easily find on the Internet.

The price of these tools and applications usually does not go through the roof and some of them are free of charge. So whenever a company is not fully satisfied with the services that a certain social media aggregator is providing it with, the respective company is recommended to keep exploring its options. There is an impressively wide range of choices to look into and the ever-evolving social media environment is forcing clever IT minds to add value to each upcoming social media aggregator, for competitiveness reasons.

A business manager looking to considerably simplify the overall all-too-complicated social media experience of a company can read the product info all of these aggregators come accompanied by and make a clever decision. Online forums where folks are recommending or advising against these aggregators could also stand for some reliable sources of information at times, especially for the inexperienced.

Successfully managing content across several networks under the same generous umbrella and hence incorporating social media into a blooming business all depends on the efficiency and accuracy of a social media aggregator. Some aggregators will personalize trending topics online, others will constantly keep an eye on Internet users’ interests and needs in terms of information, some will carefully analyze comments and messages and other will even incorporate thoughtful social feed streams and useful bookmarks.

All in all, the success of a business relies on the type of tools it uses to make itself and its products and services seen, heard of and talked about. No matter if your name is Frank Bobby and you are simply considering launching a new online T-shirt printing business or you are an experienced furniture company looking to get more out of your social media visibility, social media aggregators are the right impact tools you should make full use of.

Pros and Cons of Social Media

A lot of ink has been spilled over the matter of using social media means as promoting or boosting one’s business. Social media web sites such as Facebook, Google Plus, or Twitter have also been attentively analyzed for their powerful role as information sources, as well as for their ability to cause negative impacts and lead to obsessive-compulsive behaviors online. Shortly put, there are both pros and cons that should be mentioned in relation to social media, and you can check it out following the lines below.

More and more people are creating social media accounts, wishing to stay connected to everything occurring around them on a 24/7 basis. Social media is also the breaking ground of promoting one’s business worldwide, and you can now find and compare several accredited nurse practitioner schools, instead of choosing to visit that place or the other and spend a great deal of time doing unnecessary travelling. You can also check out the Facebook page of your favorite cosmetics’ brand and see if you can find your favorite natural hair products or coconut oil for skin you can purchase online. You can also keep in touch with your friends and long-distance siblings, chat, share photos, videos, thoughts and wishes in real-time. All of these are to be considered the strongest pros of using social media.

Plus, the tweets originating from trustworthy information sources informing you of the latest local or worldwide news are now successfully replacing your regular information sources such as the news or online newspapers. Today, information reaches you via social media platforms, and you no longer need to go on a hunt for it on a daily basis. This is probably one of the biggest advantages of inserting social media into your daily routine.

Information continues to be the key to success, so, so far, so good. But the amount of time millions of folks tend to spend online is the disturbing factor we should mention here. The social media bug can be caught by a lot of people, and the gap between normality and social media addiction is not that large and hard to cross.

Teenagers and young adults altogether are the main targeted individuals, as they are most interested in being hyperactive and keeping in touch with all the important events worldwide. If we are to mention to case of the Boston Marathon bombing and the misleading information that has been leaked to the public, or other similar unfortunate events such as the death hoax cases that have involved celebrities worldwide and which have caused psychological damage similar to car accident negligence, we can see why social media is also faulty.  

While you can easily buy some serviced apartments London via Facebook contacts, you can also be bullied via social media platforms, so, without drawing the fine line between the pros and the cons, social media can prove to be a tool that is hard to control.

Social media: Mass connection or mass disruption?

We live in the world in which everyone is connected to everyone else. However, I once read a quote somewhere which said something like go into the forest; you won’t find an internet connection there but I promise you will connect better. This small and very simple quote managed to capture my attention greatly. It is true, nowadays the only place where we may not have access to a goo internet connection may be a deserted spot in a forest or out in the middle of the ocean. Everywhere else seems to have a good wifi connection! Go to the malls, you will find access to the internet so that you can ‘check in’ an let your friends know that you are having a great time.  Restaurants also have wifi enabled. If you happen to go somewhere without a wifi connection, you can simply turn on the mobile internet service provided by your operator! Going online is therefore no longer a problem at all. Now you wouldn’t just go online because you want o surf the internet in a public place; mostly people surf the internet at home! The main reason why one wants to go online is because he or she has a massive circle of ‘friends’ on any one or more of the many social networking websites present. Today, I will discuss the different roles that such sites are playing these days.

The social media is often filled with details of an individual’s life that should not be disclosed to the hundreds of ‘friends’ that a person has on these platforms. You see, some information is either too personal or too trivial to be shared with everyone an individual knows. The concept of privacy seems to be nonexistent in the present world; everyone seems to know where you are, what you are doing and how you feel. Relationships have been strained because of such actions; fights have broken out among friends over petty issues generated from the social media. We live in a world where people deem it important even if they have health problems like sciatica pain. What people fail to understand is that some things are better left unpublicized. Such details about one’s life are not for show; they should only be shared with close friends and family.

Speaking of close friends and family, often people have others added in their social network streams when they aren’t even acquaintances. You see, someone you once spoke to on a bus simply does not qualify to be added to your circle. You see, you can delude yourself by the statistics on your social media sites that you have hundreds of friends. That random man standing next to a shiny automobiles may be someone you meet at the grocer’s daily, however, that does not make that person a friend! One must understand that in times of need, none of these friends turn up leaving the individual broken and confused.

It is true that the social media has brought massive changes to our lifestyle and that it does have several benefits. However, the destruction caused by social media is a lot more than the benefits it gives.

Fire Ants; Beneficial Pest?

It is sometimes easy to forget about the little critters of the microscopic world. Crawling around in a tiny world, so intricately connected to our own, are over 900 million different species of insect.

Some of the most profound, and interesting species are the ants, and there is no shortage of them! There are over 12,000 known species of ants and the total biomass of all the ants in the world is believed to be roughly equal to the biomass of humans; scientists estimate that for every human alive, there are 1.5 million of them!

One particular type of ant, probably caught most of our attentions when we were very young; the fire ant (or to clarify; ants of the solenopsis genome). Many of us probably had our first encounter in the form of a sharp burning sensation when we sat in the way of one; hence the name “fire ant”. Yes, the fire ant is perhaps most notorious for it’s brutal sting.

Other ants tend to bite and then spray venom into the wound. The fire ant bites only to grip on, and then injects a venom through a sting in the abdomen. The venom is an alkaline compound containing solenopsin. The effect is painful for humans, and often fatal for other insects.

Interestingly, this particular alkaline has been used in homeopathic therapies, and has recently had scientific light shed on it to reveal it’s qualities as an antibacterial, insecticidal, anti fungal, and anti-HIV properties. The fire ant might be paying us back for it’s stings. That’s better than the deals on nomorerack.

Another claim to fame made by a certain fire ant, the Solenopsis invicta has another claim to fame; it is said to cause an estimated $5 billion in damages per year to North America, in medical treatment, damage, and control. These is an invasive fire ant species which is said to arrived by boat in the early 1900′s.

But there is much more to the fire ant than it’s distinguishable sting, and it’s ability to run up a whopping bill with the FDA. Like other ants, the societies they form are vast and complex, hierarchical and efficient, and there is much scientific interest around them.

To nest, the fire ant produces large mounds, sometimes in open areas. They feed off plants, seeds, other insects like crickets, and sometimes small animals, which they are capable of attacking, and sometimes killing and eating.

Colonies are founded by queen ants, who can give birth to an expansive population in a matter of months. Their primary focus is breeding, and they can lay up to 3,500 eggs in a single day. They live for around 6 or 7 years; much longer than any ant workers or males. That makes for a lot of eggs, perhaps as many as 9 million in a queen’s lifetime.

The workers, and soldiers, in the colony are born sterile, to the reproductive process of the queen. The workers tend to take care of the everyday tasks around the nest, including foraging for food, taking care of the larvae, and cleaning the nest. The soldiers are bigger, stronger ants, which have powerful mandibles.

There are male ants in the fire ant societies, and their role is mate with the queen. Before anyone starts thinking this is the easy job, the male seems only to live for reason of this mating; he dies shortly afterwards.

The males, and the queen, interestingly, have been shown to be born to a “cloning” process. Where workers are born to normal reproductive processes on the part of the queen, daughter queens are always clonally produced. This increases the queens relatedness to reproductive daughters but potentially damages the males reproductive success. As a result of this the male has developed a response by reproducing clonally too! They achieve this, it is suggested, by eliminating the maternal half of the genome in diploid eggs.

Perhaps even more bizarrely, some colonies of fire ants have only one queen, known as a monogyne queen, and some societies involve multiple queens, aptly named a polygyne colony. The two colonies have also been shown to display differences in behaviour, with the monogyne acting more aggressively, and territorially, killing any queen that tries to attach itself to the colony. The polygene colonies, on the other hand, accepts strangers, including new queens to help colonize.

Whether you love them, or hate them, the fire ant is a fascinating creature. With social and political structures that seem as complex as our own, stinging venoms that could become potential cures, and strange genetic behaviours that are leaving scientists baffled, the fire ant earns it’s right to be king of the insects.

Internet Amusements That Give You Sleepless Nights

The Internet does not just serve lofty purposes like providing free knowledge for all those who seek it or making communication with virtually anybody around the globe faster and more convenient. The Internet has a fun side too, and a rather addicting one that keeps you glued to your computer for hours and hours.

Social Media Networks

Everybody is on Facebook, which is probably the most famous website address among teens in the world today. It is the only place where you won’t be dubbed insane for talking to a wall. Twitter is more casual where everybody just tweets about virtually anything that comes to mind with the secret hope of somebody joining in on the conversation. Many teenagers are addicted to social media networks and even adults often find themselves mindlessly scrolling through their timeline for hours. The most amusing part about social networking sites is that they are the perfect and ultimate stalking tools. You are now updated with what everybody is doing, including your ex lover, that cheerleader classmate that you hate and you find yourself often with too much information like how constipated your best friend is today or how much somebody hates her mother. Instead of facing their problems, they “Facebook” it. Make ups and breakups are public announcements, every woman is now a model and statuses are filled with hidden innuendoes secretly meant to spite others.

Also, everybody is now an entrepreneur through Facebook, without the needed working capital.  Now you can have a flea market online and sell your junk to your friends. However, it is hard to quit the Facebook mania because you are most likely already a part of it. In fact, studies show that Facebook and Twitter are just as addicting as drugs and alcohol.

That Awkward Corner of YouTube

Here you are on YouTube, minding your own business, browsing through videos and listening to some music. Then somehow you stumble upon a link of a cat video, and next thing you know, you’ve been watching pet videos for the past three hours. Without realizing it, you somehow ended up in that awkward corner of YouTube. Whether it’s watching cats on a treadmill, dogs taking a poop or babies laughing, you somehow just can’t quit playing one video after the other. One of the most famous and hilarious cat videos entitled, “I’m a Stupid Cat” for instance has more than 8 million views and the song of which now sells on iTunes. Some people get so obsessed with pet videos and other fun, awkward videos that they download an entire collection to their seedbox and happily wait for their download to complete.

Instagram

Although accessed through your mobile phone, Instagram has taken the world by storm with millions of people uploading pictures of their food and pets every day. Pictures of sunrises are fairly common, as well as vain photographs of wannabe models in their fleshy clothes and dainty skirts. Instagram is an addiction as much as it is a nuisance to some, as it reflects the utter vainglory and narcissism of the human race. You also find so many random pictures posted here from streetlights to advertisements on where to buy Kratom capsules. You are so acquainted with seeing Instagram photos appear on your Facebook and Twitter timeline that when Instagram is actually down, you begin to wonder how everybody’s pets are, if your friends have eaten and if the sun did indeed rise this morning (pun intended).

9Gag and other Just for Laughs Sites

9Gag and other image-based sites are the number one source of entertainment for many people today. You want to have a good laugh, visit one of those sites. 9Gag itself receives a whooping 1 billion visits per month! It has come to a point that 9Gag has become a culture, with youngsters even following 9Gag talks, memes and incorporating their jokes into their daily existence (Talk about Internet addiction).

Other Internet Musings

The Internet is indeed a powerful searching tool and you can virtually find everything you need, from choosing the right wedding dress to the right trust deed Scotland. And don’t we just all love to read a heated argument in a forum about the most ridiculous topic and when someone has no good comeback, they start to act as grammar police and attack the grammar of the opponent? Or that feeling that you get when you see a current picture of Macaulay Culkin and realize that you are freakishly old already considering Home Alone came out in 1990? Or how you find the most random answers to your problems from how to make a man or woman like you to finding the right company to handle your PPI claims? The Internet is full of strange, addicting and delightful musings and it is most definitely one of the greatest technological inventions in all of history. Don’t get too hooked though and remember to have a life in the real world as well!

Simply add a service that you want and skip others that you do not need. There is no need to maintain a long list of plug-ins when you only need, as an example, two!

In a nutshell, Fireant gives you useful information and enables you to control and configure options to boost your website’s visibility and popularity. These are broken down into five facets namely: Web Analytics, Optimization, Valuation and Monetization, Publication, and Integration with Social Media.

1. Web Analytics. At the core of any successful website is the concept of understanding what readers want and what are the best ways to deliver it to them. In that regard, Fireant will simplify your life by sifting through tons of internet data to give you a summary you can easily digest.

Consider the following data available at your disposal:
Feed subscription analysis including how many new and total subscribers you have at any given moment, for the last week and for the last month including the number of actual readers that are clicking content.
A detailed dive into re-syndicated feeds such as email services and web browsers through which your website is being viewed.
Actual hits combined with click-through tracking.
Re-syndication in uncommon websites including spam sites. Now you have full view of any place on the internet where your original content has re-appeared and Fireant includes this data in the traffic calculation.

2. Optimization. So what are you going to do with all that extra data on your fingertips? You can’t obviously just sit on it much like you would buy an Android only for texting and calling. Of course, Fireant offers a variety of features designed to optimize your current content to increase hits, subscription, syndication, and clickthrough.

The best way to organize and optimize web pages is with the use of Fireant’s Feedflare functionality. It is a means to simplify multiple tasks by providing one window through which you can include the necessary post enhancements like links to Facebook and Twitter, Digg and other social sharing sites so your subscribers can “like”, retweet, or promote a post by re-advertising it. It also has options for creating tags and allows readers to share the content through email. After all, you can only do so much to encourage wow gold content sharing in the most effective and hassle free way.
There are also suitable tools to facilitate easier viewing of your page including BrowserFriendly as well as tools to optimize your Podcasts.

With Fireant’s host of optimization features, you can instantly use analytics data to help point your website development efforts in the right direction. If it were career research, then you know that you are not walking blind or choosing a profession without knowledge of your potential clientele.

3. Valuation and Monetization. There can only be so many reasons why people create websites and blogs and at the top of the list is the need to profit out of it. Of course, Fireant seamlessly integrates with popular CPM programs so you can monitor your advertising gains but on top of that, Fireant also implements a complementary network for ad revenue sharing.

Called the Fireant Ad Network (FAN), it allows CPM-based advertisements that appear in your feed and for companies to pay you back a portion of the advertising revenues. Without even intentionally targeting it, you already get paid for the content that you post. It’s not different from owning office space New York and getting all those paid ads on your space without even soliciting for them. Anytime you avail of a service for free and get paid in return for simply boosting your website’s popularity, you know that that’s a good deal.

4. Publication. No amount of professional translation and effort, analysis and optimization can improve your website’s ranking if you are limited in your means to publish content. By signing up to Fireant, you get a toolkit of methods that you can use to push content to the reader. This includes email subscriptions, APIs named BuzzBoost, FeedCount and PingShot, and a means to create headline animation.

Fireant conveniently allows website owners to push content to subscribers through email. Beyond RSS and web feeds, readers can configure email-based updates that simplify the task of sifting through content to get to the updates that you want.
BuzzBoost works like an RSS feed except that it uses HTML as a way to integrate content into another site or blog. If you have other websites or work with a group of website owners that are willing to share and promote content, BuzzBoost provides the perfect platform by which you can display the latest posts from a website on to another.
PingShot, on the other hand, is an API that allows you to immediately push content as soon as it is published. Most RSS and web feeds employ a refresh cycle of about 30 minutes which means your new content can encounter some delays before being made visible. With PingShot, you can easily bypass this and display content as it is made available.

There’s no better way to deal with those payday loans than being able to generate, promote and monitor content as you make it available and this is one of the hallmarks of Fireant that you will never be able to find in other sites.

5. Social Media Integration. In a recent study by internet research firms, the many forms of social media most notably Facebook and Twitter have become the most visited websites on the internet and it is where people spend the bulk of their time while online. It would be naïve to not use this platform as a means to publish and push content. It would be like buying car insurance without having a car.

In this regard, Fireant implements a function called Socialize which integrates with Twitter to a means for formatting, content selection, hash tag addition and other necessary text to deliver content. When selected as an API, it sifts through your RSS feed stream and selects keywords that you have associated to a Twitter account. From here, it automatically posts a truncated version of that post on Twitter for all your followers to digest. If your RSS feeds were like your cars, then Socialize is your car insurance provider.

The wealth of web management options available for free on Fireant empowers anyone to effectively and efficiently deliver content in the most convenient way possible. The web analytics feature eliminates the need to second guess how your content is being received. You can then use this data to push content back with all the optimization features available on Fireant. To top it off, you get to earn by working on your site even without intentionally and actively looking for it.

So stop all the second guessing and move away from using multiple services from multiple providers for very expensive fees just to get your website to rank higher or become more popular. Use Fireant for free and experience the burn all in one toolkit. Quite simply, you would never have to use anything else!

The Future of Social Media

You probably don’t know one person who doesn’t have a Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn account. This is because social media has taken the world by storm giving you the opportunities to stay in contact with friends, family, business associates and customers.

Social media is a way to promote your business, increase customers and improve your profit margins, but what does the future hold for social media? It’s doubtful whether social media will advance from where it is now, you have instant access to real time information on your computer or smart phone, you can send updates and advise of new products as and when they arrive. You no longer need a masters in education in order to properly navigate the web. Social media has transformed the way we communicate.

If you know how to make a website, you can start a business page on a social media site, you can keep customers advised of developments, put fun posts to make them remember you and get your name in their heads next time they want a service you provide.

Social Media is like the best anti aging cream, it will never wrinkle, it will stay firm and without creases as it improves and grows on a daily basis. It’s a master of education as it increases awareness and knowledge, improves social skills and keeps people connected every second of every day.

As we move forward, we see the security improvements put in place, an online criminal justice degree, keeping unwanted acquaintances and people we don’t know away. The dangers of the social media network is keeping a public profile, where people know your contact information and where you are, where you go and when you’re out, this is just a time bomb waiting to erupt.

The future holds interesting possibilities through social media, staying in constant contact with family over the world are couettes, we enjoy the interaction and the only way forward is to grow and improve this desire. If you don’t have a computer, you can enjoy constant contact through your smartphone, there is no end to the possibilities.

Instead of log book loans, you can sell items on the Facebook Marketplace, get extra cash in that way and if you have immobilier, it’s easy to advertise through the facilities offered on these sites.

If you think about it these social media networks are growing on a daily basis, if you post information on a property you have for sale, all your friends will see it. The minute they comment on your post, their friends see it and so it continues giving you a huge database to embrace and make the most of.

All in all the only future for social media is a majority stake hold in our futures. We can’t remember not being connected through these sites; we relied on email to stay connected to family. Remember sending photographs through email and having to add email addresses, now you can add your photographs to your profile and everyone can see them, saving you time and enabling you to share your enjoyment with those that matter.

Social Media Aggregators for the iPad and iPhone

With the increasing popularity of social networking sites and the prevalence of internet-ready mobile devices, it was only a matter of time before the need to have social media aggregators became an overriding concern by many users. Consider: how much of a pain is it for you to manage Facebook, Twitter and all your other social networking accounts? How many times do you need to repost status updates about your recent foray into the atkins Diet just so that they all appear on your various social media accounts? If you’re like the rest of us, then you know that it’s such a bummer!

With the development of social media aggregators and the arrival of uber-cool devices like the iPad and the iPhone, there is now no need to worry about how you can manage all your accounts through one window. The convenience would no doubt paint smile makeovers on your face, one that is brought about by the utter simplicity of your subsequent forays into the virtual world. With social media aggregators taking care of all your updates, you can focus on staying connected with your friends, minding your HCG drops dosage, and pining for that free cell phone offer because now, you wouldn’t have to waste hours just to get all your accounts synced up and working together.

Among the more popular social media aggregators that are compatible with the iPad and iPhone are Tweetdeck, Seesmic, and ZeroPC among others. The typical configuration of social media aggregators is such that all your updates, timeline, messages are fused into one rolling window. Consequently, you have the option to post status updates into multiple accounts at the same time. It is also highly configurable, working like vinyl shutters to let out the information that you want and keep in those that you only want to limit to a few select sites. In the case of Tweetdeck, even the personal messages are aggregated into one location so you do not have to worry about everything being all over the place.

Of course, the fact that these social media aggregators run on the iPad and the iPhone make them more than just another app or window through which we communicate our thoughts and feelings. The iPad and the iPhone have become ubiquitous parts of our everyday lives, much like christmas lights are always there during Christmas. Today, we no longer need to sit in-front of a computer to post a Facebook or Twitter update. The iPad and the iPhone make it possible to instantaneously provide spur-of-the-moment comments and reactions as events unfold. They power our most passionate opinions about anything and everything, just like mobile phone batteries juice up our mobile phones. In the same way, these comments and knee-jerk reactions act as our psychosis, our therapy, our yoga mats in a whirlwind world of digital buzz.

The fact that social media aggregators simplify all of this into a neat format with pleasing user interfaces and wildly entertaining avenues for communicating makes our lives truly the marvel that it has become. Tweetdeck, ZeroPC, and Seesmic, among others, have given us the ride of a lifetime ala perpetually bouncing on a trampoline of fun.

As more and more bits and pieces of our life find its way into the digital world, expect social media aggregators to play an even deeper role in the way you talk to the world. More dreamweaver templates and clever programming will pave the way for even more sophisticated, more user-friendly, more interactive, more effective, and more open forms of social media aggregation technology. Make no mistake about it, such a phenomenon is happening right now.

So don’t blink, else you might just miss it.

Three Personal Relationship Management Tools to Keep Connected

One of the most important benefits of social media platforms, believe it or not, is that it allows us to manage our personal relationships even at a distance. Thus, it is therefore not surprising that from a very technical, archaic, and even impersonal perspective, social media platforms can also be called personal relationship management tools. Let’s face it; you visit site after site after site to find out how your friends are doing, comment to stay connected, and share your own experiences to keep friends and family members in the loop. If that is not personal relationship management, then we don’t know what is.

Thankfully, in this day and age, there are more than a few personal relationship management tools available to one’s disposal. In fact, it’s already being used as resources for teachers who are looking to establish the importance of personal relationships.

The most notable personal relationship management tools today are as follows:

Facebook. Who in the world does not know about Facebook? It’s virtually an article source for all things social media. You cannot go far in the internet without the Facebook logo coming up. It is home to 900 million users and is the most visited website on the internet so much so that all things revolve around Facebook one way or another. Their site is also conducive to all sorts of information sharing so there are plenty of talking points via Facebook. Of all the social media platforms on the web, there is no denying that Facebook is the great dane on the lot and few can compare to its status and value.

Twitter. Next to Facebook, Twitter is one of the best personal relationship management tools around. It is composed of short messages, up to a maximum of 140 characters only, and is an ideal venue for multiple discussions, quick snippets, and links to other websites for information sharing. Like Facebook, you cannot go to far without a link to Twitter that says “visit this URL”
Google Plus. Google Plus is Google’s attempt at snatching a share of the social media platform from Facebook and thus far, it hasn’t panned out in any overly impressive manner. Still, there are more than a few people who have migrated to Google Plus and conduct their personal relationship management affairs there. The fact alone that it is managed by Google should tell you that is has significant clout on the web and is bound to establish itself, one way or another, as one of the better platforms through which one can stay connected with friends and family.

Of course, the biggest caveat to all these personal relationship management tools that one can use to keep connected is that it is hard to filter the type of information you are getting. As such, there should be some degree of parental control that is necessary in order to reap the benefits and do away with the danger of social media platforms. Recognizing that need is crucial towards keeping personal relationship management tools where they belong, as tools to managing personal relationships but never as a replacement to establishing and fostering real relationships.

Check out these three tools and se how you can use it to your own benefit, by keeping connected with friends and letting them know how you are; that certainly beats writing letters and waiting for months to get a response.
