Web 2.0

Social Media Updated (again)

Courtesy of Beccablog this is the latest update on the stats for Social Media and it is based on the book Socialnomics.  Frankly, it is just amazing that these things have to come out so often, sometimes more than once a year.  This is a result of how much influence the social media is having on the way we communicate, do business and relate to each other.

Now look here!

If you’ve been here before you will notice that I’ve been having a play with the look of the blog.  Trying for something a bit less bland, a bit more colourful, a bit more me!  Settling for this one at the moment, but well, watch this space who knows what it might evolve into next.  I’m liking the rounded edges and the flowery banner at the top.  Love the brown and green thing – so well – till next time I feel like a change this is it.

Dreadful things did happen on the way here though, I had a gorgeous, tasteful winter theme for about 48 hours, and then went to put a post on, and discovered that the transition phase had swallowed my log in box and I couldn’t get in here.  I knocked politely on the door and there was no way that anybody would let me in.  Had to go right back to my original sign up email and start again, thank god I kept it!  So moral of that little tale is, do not delete your original sign up email folks, you never know when you might need it.  All manner of these Web 2.0 things I belong to, many with different log in and passwords – my, it’s a drama.  I even went to the various forum the WordPress have and couldn’t sign in there.

I’ve been trying to sign up to TokBox so that I can have an alternative to Skype with multiple chatty types at once, and I have never been there before.  I sign up for a new account, enter my email and the password of my choosing and I get the message “incorrect password” What The!  I’ve now tried every email address I have and it won’t let me sign in, I always get incorrect password error.  So, fun and games, new technology is not my friend this weekend, and here was I going to try some other things I’ve been saving up but two experiences of being locked out in one weekend and I’m so not going to try again.  Might just slope off and watch some series 1 of Big Bang Theory, or even read a book, no password required there!
