vInspired's Swing The Vote campaign is calling on all party leaders to pledge to deliver their top five election promises affecting under 25s on to Twitter. Around two-thirds of young people in the OnePoll survey said politics would be "easier to digest and understand" if delivered on Twitter.
Use the advent of new systems of communication to broaden your horizons, to learn and experience new things. Exploit the decline of party politics: now is the chance to develop opinions without the limiting nature of partisan groupthink.
The fact is that it's SO easy to get fixated on the numbers. I know what it's like to be chasing the next big milestone - the next round hundred or thousand. I'd look at other pages for women business owners and get downhearted that they had way more likes than me.
Business today means leading and empowering professionals towards branding themselves, and being less precious about top-down control. Help people to be themselves and trust that they will return the favour by bringing brands and campaigns to life, just like Pinocchio.
When it comes to Twitter, I have found one of the best ways of learning how to approach the site is to take inspiration from those who don't know how things work around the Twittersphere. Or rather, those who maybe do know, but yet still manage to make boobs of themselves.
Having worked in the building industry for 18yrs I'm no prude when it comes light hearted banter, everyday sexism and letting things slide when things don't *really* matter but come on. Really, foodie people? Really?
Publications and journalists have always sent emails to brand owners and PR agencies to find news worthy stories (known as media requests); but this has changed to some extent due to social media.
If I wasn't travelling, I think I would explode! Well, not really, but if I wasn't travelling I would definitely feel lost. Wanderlust is something some people have ingrained in their very soul and they cannot ignore it, no matter how hard they try.
I reacted yesterday to a Twitter post where someone named and shamed a lady who had killed her kitten in a microwave. This disturbed woman's picture went up, just to show her face, and beneath the picture were many comments from naturally reactive, sickened people.
Millennials are changing forever the way we consume media and nowhere is this change more apparent than in the domain of user generated content (UGC) and online user engagement.
With the introduction and rapid take up of technologies like social login, many companies such as Facebook, Google and Twitter have become 'identity providers'. If you've ever signed up to a new website and chosen to log in using a social media account rather than input all of your personal details then you will appreciate the advantages of this.
Two Facebook groups have been rocking the internet-boat over the past couple of weeks with their contributions to spring 2014's biggest trend - Stranger Shaming.
I had an interesting twitter exchange earlier this week about whether and if we should be 'making a fuss' and celebrating and encouraging social CEOs. I understood their point that it isn't rocket science and it got me thinking. So here, my thoughts on being a charity CEO and why we have to get to grips to social media.
My fear is that the truly passionate, thoughtful voices are soon going to be far too muffled by the arse-cheeks of society's bottom-feeders, that soon they won't be able to be heard for fart nor fiction.
Facebook ruined my school reunion. I already knew that the podgy, pimpled and gawky girl from Year 9 has transformed into an attractive busty blonde who no longer sits alone in the library (every single lunch break) but Vogue House where she has landed that dream job.
As a singleton in 2014, Facebook is a key social hurdle to navigate in the early stages of a relationship. Do you really want someone you're getting to know to have access to details of the last ten years of your life? Should you see photos of his parents, friends and siblings before you actually meet them?
