the internet: Why employees should be careful when using Twitter

A few years ago social networks on internet were unthinkable, something depicted from science fiction stories. Meanwhile things have changed, the internet became a part of every day life, but something remained the same as the times it was only in the imagination and plans of few people: the employers are always asking for references. Long, long time ago, when the world was in a galaxy without internet, the old fashion way as to phone the previous employer and ask him (or her) about how kind of people was the employee wanabe. Lately the job of asking references has became a lot more easier: it’s enough to search and browse the guy’s social network accounts.

The quality and the quantity of people’s tweets can be a good judge for the one who’s writing or sharing them. Some people made history with what they said, in bad and good ways… and they are or were remember for that: something written in a moment of stupidy or rage can follow the writer for the rest of his life. On the other hand, almost no employer will be interested in someone that’s loosing his time tweeting instead of doing the job he is hired to do. More, nobody will be interested in someone foolish, who speaks or writes stupid things or, at least, nothing of values.

the internet: Why politicians should be careful when using Twitter

Why politicians should be careful when using Twitter #1

Social media is something very useful when you want to send a message for the entire world in such manner that everyone interested can pick it up and read it over and over again if they are interested. Social networks can be a very powerful tools if they are used properly, if you have a good message to send and a better mind to organize the virtual world as needed. I know that the whole idea of social media interaction is treated differently around the globe, some people does not yet understand their meaning. As a old time politician, if you don’t see the use of social media stay away of them and put a specialist in communication and internet to do this job for you.

The first important thing a politician must consider when using Twitter is the misinterpretation. The length of the message is essential in Twitter: you must fit everything in only 140 characters. That’s all. It does not matter who you are (politician or not), if you want to make youself understood clearly you must write carefully every tweet you send to your followers. Misunderstanding can be translated into votes, usually in losing them. You can lose an entire campaign because you have been ambiguous in several ocasions and the word about it have been spread.

the internet: Why its a good idea to protect your domain name

One’s presence over internet, as an individual or a business, is in part defined by the domains he or she is using to post articles, products and/or services. An appropriate domain name will boost your traffic and your popularity, it may become a trademark if it wasn’t already before you have started the online activity. So you have to consider your domain name as assets you must protect and to improve their values in time.

There are a lot of possible reasons people may loose their online domains, some are very common, some are not so often related with every day practice.

You can lose visitors and customers because of typo domain names

As I’ve written some time ago on a websited related with web design, you should reserve different but similar domain names for your business. The reason is simple: when information is being transmited from one person to another there can always appear errors, people may mispell or type with errors the name of your site. If the domain name have digits or words separated by hyphens reserve a domain name similar: with the same words, but no hyphens and with the digits as letters.

It does not look that you are protecting the domain name in this way, but in order you have one famous domain with a great working website you must cover all the field, not to let anyone take advantage by your work and ideas.

the internet: Tips on purchasing websites in 2012

It is well known that the domain names registration has became an industry and some people are making big money from registering or purchasing domain names, developing websites and/or selling or reseling them to others. Beside these people, the main reason of purchasing websites is the someone wants to develop a business or a network of sites and somebody else registered a desired domain name.

It does not matter the reason you are purchasing the website, always check the trends when you are decided to make the step. Even if you are already sure about the domain name you want, the TLD market is always changing, as long the people are pressuring the Internet authorities to release new TLDs. You can always find the free domain names on different TLDs if the primary domain name is already taken. I’ve head some time ago that there was taken a decision about registering the TLDs freely, as you want, but I’ll have to check it out (to update my information) and I’ll post another article about this story.

the internet: How to get Twitter followers


How to get Twitter followers #1

In spite the number of problems that might appear when a Twitter user has too many followers and he or she has to interact with them (those problems can be solved with a little management of time and followers), I can say for sure that the dream of (almost) every people that’s using Twitter is to have lots and lots of people reading one’s tweets… especially after he or she gets the taste of it.

Well, there a few tricks to do this job. None of them will be substitute and can never replace the most 2 important things on Twitter: be original and follow the trends. From time to time you may found yourself in the position tostart a trend, but this is another story.

Tweet often, but create space for reactions from your followers

Common sense says and some personal observation say that the number of followers is directly proportional with how active you are on Twitter. By tweeting you are making waves, you say something in the world of Twitter and sooner or later someone, somewhere, somehow will hear you and will follow you. Of course, remeber what I’ve said earlier about originality. If you tweet too regularly and about nothing that worths reading you risk losing your followers.
