Peekyou, search across the web, social media & more

peerindex (a reputation management/metrics site) has launched a new search engine called peekyou (http://www.peekyou.com). It searches across facebook, linkedin, twitter, friendster, myspace, several people search engines (intellius, spokeo, etc.) and even wikipedia. Results include email addresses, phone numbers, documents, web sites, and public records (although some of those results are offered through paid services like through peoplesearch or spokeo). An interesting idea even though search ...

It’s not you (or is it?) – on why you can’t get a job

Karen Schneider of Free Range Librarian, has an excellent post, Why you didn’t get an interview. I started writing a comment and realized I was probably 2000 characters over the limit. 😉 I did leave a brief comment but I’m blogging my thoughts. Karen points to 5 main factors: TMJS (the job market sucks – definitely true), the Known Quantity (libraries hire what they know ...

Google+ : thoughts on Google’s new social effort

So, I’ve been playing a bit with Google+ the new social media site from you know who. (Clicking on images will show you the full size, btw…)Is it a Facebook Killer?

on criticism and critique

On Sunday evenings I often attend a twitter chat called #blogchat. One regular topic is blog review. Bloggers will submit their blogs for review along with either questions for the group or insights into their vision/mission of their blogs. As with all critiques (especially online ones), these can turn personal and even mean-spirited. However, given the nature of text based virtual communication and the brevity ...

If you post to Twitter, does twitter own your photos and artwork?

A few of us at twitter (thanks @ashuping) were having a discussion about images & creative commons which expanded to microblogging. A few months ago I read a really interesting post arguing that if you post an image through twitter it is essentially public and free to be used by anybody (or at least that is how I read the article). Now, I’m not a ...

What happens if we don’t invest in staff & they stay?

A twitter post (@sabram @eranium) a few weeks ago posited this question:CFO asks CEO “What happens if we invest in developing our people & then they leave us?” CEO: ‘What happens if we don’t, and they stay?” Interesting thought, isn’t it? For many of us, we have staff who work for us, take advantage of training (either that we offer as on the job training) ...

How can you tell if it’s an Auto DM (Twitter)?

I do use DM (direct messages) in Twitter to “email” my Twitter followers and those I follow, esp. if it’s of a more personal nature.My DMs are always real; however, some Twitter users use various tools to create an AutoDM. It can sometimes be hard to tell if a DM is “real” (actually handwritten by a person) or AUTO (generated by a bot based upon ...
