Twin Cities Top 10 Titans in Social Media Announced

Judy Grundstrom at the Just JudyJudyJudy blog yesterday announced the Twin Cities Top Ten Titans In Social Media 2009 , chosen by a distinguished group of judges . It's a very interesting list. The winners come from a variety of backgrounds, including politics ( Dusty Trice ), broadcast media ( Jason Matheson and Alexis Thompson of FM 107.1, Jason DeRusha of WCCO TV), the arts ( Kate Iverson ), corporate marketing ( Kelly Groehler of Best Buy), and PR agencies ( Blois Olson and David Erickson from Tunheim, the brilliant Jennifer Kane , and, um... me ), among others. You can find details of the top five and 6-10 winners on Judy's blog. It's quite an honor to be named to this list, and it helped me pick up a bunch of cool new local Twitter friends (I still don't like the term "followers," sounds too Kool-Aid-drinking cultish) like Aimee Cheek , Allison Janney , Tara Olson and Morsekode . Judy also discussed some of the winners on the December 9 Jaso

137 Twitter Marketing Tips for Small Business Trying To Go Big

In case you missed it (as I did), Anita Campbell a few months ago published 137 Twitter Tips: How Small Businesses Get the Most from Twitter , based on input from the readers of Small Business Trends . This report provides a treasure trove of guidance for marketers who seek to increase their brand awareness, credibility and business results using Twitter. The tips are categorized into six sections. Among the recommendations provided, by section: Getting Started Matt McGee provides tools (such as  Tweepz ) and other methods for finding local Tweeters to follow, and getting them to follow back. Joseph Manna notes the importance of commitment, and recommends spending at least a half hour per day discovering and Tweeting. John Joyce and Becky McCray offer guidance on useful tools (e.g., Twitter search and Twellow ) for finding local or industry-relevant people to follow. Staci J.

Social Media, Cell Phones, Online Shopping and Big Brother

Is Big Brother watching you? Books like George Orwell's classic 1984 and films such as Minority Report and Eagle Eye present a nightmarish vision of an omniscient government watching our every move. The reality is far different story, paranoia about the Patriot Act notwithstanding. As recently as 2004, FBI agents still used laptops with Intel 286 processors. But is it possible that the government simply doesn't need hidden cameras, high-tech listening devices and secret agents everywhere in order to know the intimate details of our lives—that we're doing it for them? Consider a few technologies that have become part of daily life: Cell Phones: these can not only be used to take pictures virtually anywhere—and instantaneously upload them to the Internet—with GPS tracking, they can also be used to record our every move and pinpoint our current location. Credit Cards: the credit card companies, and services they report data to, know what you buy, when, where, and
