Social Networking for Small Businesses

Baweh Online Diary Blog
Promoting your small business online can be a massive contributing factor to an increase in traffic and sales to your company website. As time has progressed social networking website have encouraged millions onto the internet; the total number of worldwide internet users has grown by 480.4% since the year 2000 with the latest count clocking an amazing 2,095,006,005!
The world has become more connected than ever before and with social networking sites being used daily by users across the globe who are able to share and link information to each other, what better place to promote your products or services?
Look at the tools you have at your disposal on Facebook alone; you can have people ‘like’ your company, social status updates and a whole range of other posts you may choose to make. This is massively useful; someone who sees a friend of theirs has ‘liked’ a particular product or post is far more likely to click it and check it out themselves.
Facebook promotions are a fantastic means of reaching out to a potentially limitless audience, so be sure to give the people on your ‘friends’ list a reason to ‘like’ your page or product. Promote a prize giveaway; a lucky user will be picked from the list of people who like your page or request to add you to their ‘friends’ list. From this their friends may be drawn to your profile and decide to enter the competition too; and so on.
Let’s assume we own a company that sells bathroom suites ; we have a new range of whirlpool baths in stock and we want to promote these products as much as possible. A great starting point is to ensure our own company website (let’s call it; not the greatest domain but you get my point) is full of great content and we’re displaying our new whirlpool baths nice and clearly on the appropriate page. Now any posts we make on Facebook about these baths can be linked to our whirlpool baths page on
Now we encourage our friends to like our page with our competition; which in turn will inevitably draw in Facebook users from each of their friends list, if they view our profile and spot the easy-to-enter competition they are almost certainly going to enter at the price of clicking a ‘like’ button. While our Facebook page is popular we can use this opportunity to drop some posts about whirlpool baths and other possible sales and discounts with a link though to
Remember to interact with any ‘friends’ that comment on our page. Don’t be too serious, if they wish to engage you in conversation or make an enquiry about a product then give them what they want. This will also help to humanise our brand and make us more appealing to any new visitors on our profile.
Remember, build some serious hype around your social network profile then drop links to great offers or new products you have on offer. Give incentives to gain extra likes and in turn, extra followers and friends; these tactics can work just as well on twitter but you’ll have to be a little more smart with your posts as you have a limited character count on your posts.

A Social Network for Parents

New parents can have a difficult time setting in to their new lives, but New Castle's Leanne Worton is hoping to provide a valuable resource for new mothers through an online Community for local mothers.
Worton is the mother of a 2-year old son, Jackson, living in New Castle who started the online community Rifle Moms for Moms. The website is an online social network for moms and families with similar functionality of Facebook or other social networking sites. According to the site's mission statement, Rifle Moms for Moms is a local community resource to connect, inform, support and inspire the mothering community around Rifle.
"It really didn't make sense for there to be a rifle group, or a group specific for silt", Worton said, so, She decided to make a regional site which encompasses all the communities, "Its really a social network focusing on moms and families".
What separates this site from the other social networks, other than focusing on parenting, is that this site has a hyper local focus on the people within the respective communies. That is the whole point. "We want to keep it really local so that it feels very safe", Worton said. The site, focuses on the towns of Rifle, Slit and New Castle, according to worton who started and monitors the site. On the site mothers can discuss specific issues about parenting and kids.
"It gives you a safe place to ask questions and get that motherly advice that you may not have in other social networks", Worton said.
Anyone who would like to join the site can simply go to and enter their basic information with name, birthday, email, and answer some questions. Members can also use their Facebook page to login.

U. S. Military Social Networking Site

While the general populace does it's Social Network on widely used sites such as Facebook, Twitter and perhaps now Google+, military service members now have their own dedicated social networking forum. Milpages, a new site created by U. S Air Force Sergeat Adam Mulholland, will devote itself largely to military topics with the goal of bringing U. S service personnel together online.
"Unlike Facebook, we are focused solely on military topics or those things that have an interest to the military people around the world", said Mulholland, who created the site. "This means, everything from opinions on what the military is doing today, coupons and savings, international military reaching across to nations around the world, or just random conversation".

Facebook Announces Twitter-Like "Subcribe" Feature

Facebook social networking site continues to add new feature that have proved popular on rival social networking sites, introducing Wednesday a Twitter-like service that allows users to follow updates from people who are not contacts.

The service, called "subcribe", also gives Facebook users a more complete filter to help control what shows up in their news feed. But the biggest charge is the  ability for public figures, journalists, and others to allow their posts to be read without adding others as a contact on having them "Like" a page.

A Facebook user who wants to monitor the posts someone who has opted in to the program would simply hit the "subcribe" button on the person's Facebook page, and they would receive updates that person posts as "public". The service is similar to San Francisco-based Twitter, which has found a large following by allowing people to "follow" the 140 character or less updates from their favorite celebrities and other public figures.

The change comes directly on the heels of Tuesday's announcement of expanded "Friends Lists", including "Smart Lists", features that streamline the process for grouping Facebook contacts in order to have greater control over who sees certain content.

How To Keep Your Twitter Account Safe

We often asked the question "How do I keep my Twitter account safe and private?" Good question, and we're happy you asked.
First you should know that attempts to directly "hack" Twitter are extremely rare. The majority of account compromises actually happen as a direct result of "phishing" schemes. Phishing is a way to target users by sending them fraudulent messages meant to trick them into sharing their passwords. This can come in the form of fake e-mail, attachments or log-in screens that are designed to look similar to your Twitter sign-in page.
You should know that Twitter never sends emails that request Your password or asks you to download attachments. Similarly, You will never have to enter your Twitter password into anything other than a Twitter log-in screen on the web and applications that trust. You can always make sure that you're on the real Twitter site by checking the address bar in your browser-make sure the domain is There is lot more about protecting your self from phishing attempts on our support pages.
Here are some additional important recommendations from our Safety Center :
  1. Use a strong password with at least 10 characters and a combination of letters, numbers and other characters for Your Twitter account. And use a unique password for each website you use (email, banking, etc) that way if one account get compromised, the rest are safe.

How To Play Daggerfall On Your Windows 7 PC

Before you can play Daggerfall game on your Windows 7 PC, first you need to find the game. You'll probably prefer to download Daggerfall game directly from publisher Bethesda Softworks, which released the title for free to celebrate the game's 15th anniversary.
You'll need to use the free DOS emulator DOSBox to play the game on a modern machine. Grab the latest version of DOSBox and install it to your hand drive. Remember that any filename over eight caracters will truncate to match the old DOS 8.3 naming conventions, so make sure to create a separate folder for housing your DOS game files with a short and simple name, such as C:\DOS. After downloading a copy of daggerfall, unzip it in a subdirectory of C:\DOS, like C:\DOS\DaggerCD.
DOSBox offers advanced users a variety of config settings to tweak, but we're going to keep it simple and show you the bare minimum you need to play Daggerfall on a windows 7 OS. To get started, select the Edit Options item in the DOSBox folder on your start menu.
This action will open the DOSBox--0.74 conf configuration file, where you can tinker with the variables of the emulated DOS environment. Scroll down to the {dosbox}section and change the 'memsize' variable to read memsize=32. Save and close the file, and then launch DOSBox in windowed mode from the Start menu; you'll find yourself staring at a basic DOS command prompt like 'z\>\', so you'll need to tell the emulator where to look for your Daggerfall files. This process is called mounting a virtual drive, and you can easily accomplish it by typing mount c c:\dos-freesize 1000 and pressing Enter.
Next you need to emulate a virtual CD-ROM drive from which to install your copy of Daggerfall. Type mount d c:\dos\daggercd-t cdrom-lagel Daggerfall to do so. This line tells the emulator to treat all the files in c:\dos\dagger as though they were stored on a physical CD labeled Daggerfall, without all the hassle of actually needing to find a working Daggerfall CD. Now switch your DOSBox emulator to the D:\ drive by typing d: and pressing enter, and then type install. This will initiate the Daggerfall install program; agree to all terms; and install the game to c:\Dagger on your hard drive; making sure to set the install size to Huge.

Social Networking Site For Bricklyers wants to prove there's job site for skilled tradespeople somewhere between the white collar networking of LinkedIn and the anarchy of Craigslist. A site focusing on the workers end has been up since last year. The employers end has been active since May under that site's old name, Now both sides are good to go under the Proven banner. According to co-founder and CEO Pablo Fuentes, 400 new workers are creating profiles a day. More importantly for its new phase of growth, employers are joining the network at a clip of a little over 250 per day.
Workers create an account and list a skill set, along with any certifications and references verifiable to Proven through trade degrees or video samples of a worker in action. One unique feature that sets the site apart from LinkedIn. Workers can set their "Crew" of people with whom they enjoy working. Then it's on to an interactive map to find employers and submit profiles, regardless of whether they're hiring at that moment. Workers get five submissions per day.
Employers have to undergo a verification process before they can list whatever skills they seek on the map. Workers in those skill sets see employers as blue, outside that skill set they are gray and without a contact link. A company that is currently hiring appears as green and can privately choose from the profiles submitted to it.
Joining the social networking sites is free for both workers and employers, but proven plans to roll out optional premium accounts for employers in the near future, as other site like LinkedIn have offered. Those accounts will pay to use more advanced filters to best find workers in their particular skill set. Premium-level workers accounts would only pay to cover the costs of opt-in verifications such as background or DWV checks, and even then Proven plans to allow users to earn credit through site activity such as referrals. Fuentes said Proven also expects to make money through partnerships with certain trade schools.

Facebook to Introduce Video-Calling on Its Site With The Support of Skype

Image from

The social networking site like Facebook is on its way toward building an even stronger relationship with its users, with the launch of an application for video chatting and calling on the site after finalizing a deal with Skype, the internet calling service.
According to Founder and Chief Executive on Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, the new application makes chatting with friends more interesting as it goes beyond just sending messages on chat. Facebook has 750 million users worldwide and its users spend a lot of time on Facebook. If a user wants to video chat with another user, the only thing they need to do is click on their contacts profile when they are online.
The application will help users save money and time by talking face to face at low cost or for free. The new feature is also expected to boost Facebook's profits. The feature is expected to be made available to the users in a few weeks.
Presently, Google launched its Google +1 application, which the company hopes will surpass all other social networking sites like facebook in demand, as it can enable to people to chat together simultaneously.

Google's +1 Button More Popular Than Tweet Button

After only being available for just over a month, Google's +1 button has already become more popular than Twitter's tweet button.
 Are you using google+1 yet? with how hard it is to get an invite, we are sure the majority of you are not, which makes this news even more interesting BrightEdge, a SEO platform, released information today that breaks down just how many websites are using all the fancy new social networking widgets. For instance, all of Digital trends articles have a handy "Tweet", "like" and Google's +1 buttons to help you share the articles you love the most with your friends and followers, but how many other websites offer the some convenience?
Twitter's tweet button and instant follow widgets are only used on around three percent of the top 10,000 websites. In comparison, Google's new +1 button, which was launched on June, is already on four and a half percent of the top sites. Google +1, which hasn't even been available for two weeks, seems to be taking the web by storm. To help put just how quickly the +1 button took off, in the first month that +1 buttons have been available, they have shown up on over 100,000 websites. In the first week of facebook's like button, it was on 50,000 websites.
The report also outlines some other very interesting information. Most shocking for us, only 49 percent of the top 10,000 websites have either Facebook or Twitter integration on their homepages. Not to point out the obvious, but that means that over half of the web's top sites still aren't taking full advantage of social marketing, it already seems as though everywhere you look you see something linking back to Facebook, Twitter, and now Google+1 and they still have plenty of room for growth, it seems.

No longer strictly the domain of film geeks and funny video aficionados, the network, which boasts more than 2 million video views monetized per week, can also provide a low cost to no cost way to create a social marketing channel for your business.
If you aren't effectively leveraging the network, you're missing the viral video boat. However, as with most things in life, success isn't often attained with a haphazard, slapdash effort. Being successful on Youtube takes planning. These are 10 ways to be successful on youTube
  1. Known What "Success" Means
  2. What are you tryong to archive? Video views- Do you just want a lot of people to see your video?, Conversions- do you need people to click to another website and take an action?, or Deeper engagement with your brand- Do you need to use video give your potential customers more interaction with your brand?
  3. Research Keywords

  7. Create a kick-ass video
  8. You don't just create viral content because you want to. viral content-unless it happens by chance-must be well through-out and gripping! no one is going to pass on a video to their friends if they don't really care for it themselves.
  9. Fill-out Your video details
  10. Put important keywords at the front of your video titles, include them in your description, and tags. Do not over-do it, just put keywords that are relevant and are being based on your keyword resezrch. Allow your videos to be embedded. Otherwise, viewers will only be able to see your videos on YouTube.
  11. Use the "featured videos" section
  12. If you are certain that your video will be a major hit, then use YouTube's paid "Featured Videos" service to get video seen by many people in a short amount of time. Once the video takes off, your organic traffic will usually out-do your paid traffic.
  13. Insert links in your videos
  14. Use annotations to insert links to other videos to maximize every viewer. Do not over-do this either. Make sure that annotations do not impete the viewing experience.
  15. Interact with high value users

Google Disables Realtime Search Result

Google search engines said today that it has temorarily disabled its Realtime search function in the wake of the introduction of its social network Google+.
 The feature was developed to integrate real-time data from Twitter and other social networking sites. The option for the feature has been removed from the right side of Google's search bar, and the feature's Web page now contains a 404 message.
"We've temporarily disabled, we're exploring how to incorporate Google+ into this functionality, so stay tuned," the company said on its Google Realtime Twitter feed.
Google began indexing real-time Twitter message in its search results in 2009, but apparently that arrangement with the microblogging site has expired.
"Since October of 2009, we have had an agreement with Twitter to include their updates in our search results through a special feed, and that agreement expired on July 2nd," a Google representative told SearchEngineLand." while we will not have access to this special feed from Twitter, information on Twitter that's publicly available to our crawlers will still be search-able and and discoverable on Google".
When Realtime returns, it will feature content from a variety of sources, not just Google+, the company's recently unveiled social network, Google told SearchEngineLand.

How To Make Old Games Work On Windows 7

Getting old games running should be easy. those old system requirement? Irrelevant! The tools at our disposal? Endless!. So how to make old games work on windows 7
Indeed, 90 per cent of the time, getting an old classic up and running is a piece of cake. Sod's law being what it is, though, the game you really want to play will usually land in that fiddly other 10 per cent, and when that happens, you're on your own. Well, no longer.
Over the next few pages, we'll show you how to get almost any old game back up and running on your PC, starting with simple 'just work, please' instructions to DOSBox, and scaling up to deal with the four horsemen of incompatibility windows QuickTime, DirectX and 3D.
We say'almost', because unfortunately some games just won't play ball. If you want to be absolutely, positively certain, you don't have much choice but to head to eBay and actually hunt down or put together a new system using decades-old technology.
This is doable, but more than a little bit of a pain, since you'll need everything from the right processor and memory to an authentic soundcard. Luckily, these instances are few and far between, and rarely involve the kind of games that you're realistically likely to want to play these days.
Interactive movies, for instance, tend to be amongst the biggest nuisances to get running, but they're also some of the worst games ever, so it's no great loss.
Before delving too deeply into things, it's also worth checking to see if either Good Old Games, Steam or smaller sites such as DotEmu have the game that you're after.
Part of what you're paying for on these site is a version of the game designed to run on modern system, typically via a pre-configured version of DOSBox. You pay for the privilege, but typically not very much. It's worth it to skip the headaches, especially in complicated games that use fancy graphics, come on multiple CDs, or have very, very specific system requirements.

Top 10 Tips For Safe Social Networking

Congressman's Antony Weiner's very public downfall had all the earmarks or a memorable and slacious scandal. He was a rising political star, she a porn star with some tech savvy. Together they shared one or more promiscuous, and weiner thought, private online exchanges that would be his undoing. Weiner made a host of mistakes, but was mostly felled by astoundingly bad misjudgment about social interaction on the web. What happened to former congressman weiner is, without a doubt, a cautionary tale, but it should also serve as a lesson in for everyone about social media. Here are 10 tips to help you avoid your own personal Weinergate.
  1. Don't assume your digital correspondence is private.
  2. Our memories are faulty. What we see and hear is often misheard, or misremembered. Computers have perfect memories. What you say online, what you post, is a perfect reproduction of the original. It can all be saved, it can all be retrieved or recovered (Google Search, in particular, can index everything), Facebook, e-mail, instant messages, Twitter DMs can all, one way or the other, be copied and shared.
  3. Don't post anything you don't want others to see.
  4. Congressman Anthony Weiner perfected the "take a picture in the minnor" pose. He always held the smartphone in just the right place and had his body posed just so. It's a gift. The most common photo you see on Facebook of most America teens is also the mirror shot. Thankfully, most photos are tame, but we've all seen enough leaked naughty pics of starlets to know that people just can't resist the temptation to share a saucy photo with their current paramour. If you don't want your parents, friends and co-workers to see these shots-don't take them and don't share them with anyone.
  5. Manage your privacy settings.
  6. No one is going to stop using social networks, so let's at least close up the Swiss-cheese-like security holes in each of them. Services like Facebook often start out in sharing mode. You want dig in and make sure that what you do share to your Facebook friends cannot be shared outside your social circle. Groups, by the way, are a good thing and will help you and your friends keep the conversation to a chosen few. In flickr,a service that will share first. You have to remember to restrict photo viewing to friends and family.
  7. Share with fewer people.
  8. Twitter, Facebook, even good old fashioned e-mail, make it super-simple to share thoughts with larger and larger groups of people> Many on Twitter actively seek to grow their lists of followers so they can share more to many. It's a wonderful thing, until you accidentally share the thing you never wanted to with everyone. Look at your lists of friends, e-mail contacts and lists. Twitter followers and start culling. Cut the lists down and start sharing less with a much more trusted group of people.
  9. Clear out old accounts.
  10. Part of living the online social life style is signing up with every new social network in existence. They're all so much fun and so interesting. Problem is they all ask for your info and typically are sucking in information about your other social activities on other sites. Over time, you stop using many of these services-we typically only use two or three at a time- but the remnants of your former self on these now disused services remain. Go clean house. Shut down the accounts and regain control of your digital existence.
  11. Keep a record of your own correspondence.
  12. Since you know that everything you write and post online can be copied, and will persist even if you delete it, start keeping records of your own digital correspondence. Keep all personal Tweets, important e-mails and key personal interactions on Facebook. Be sure you have a copy of all photos you've posted. People you've corresponded with should not be the only ones who have this data. Having it all at your fingertips will give you a more global view of how you comport yourself in the digital world-and proof in case anyone tries to misrepresent what you've done online.
  13. Don't say anything to anyone online that you wouldn't say to their face.
  14. We get very brave online. We yell (ALL CAPS) and say nasty things to other people. In real life (IRL) we'd never be that bold. The rules should not be different online. Use good sense in IRL and online. If you're really angry, take a deep breath, count to ten and then take a short walk. When you sit back down in front of your computer you'll realize that sending that e-mail, making the Facebook post or Tweeting that bit of venom was a stupid idea.
  15. Don't share your location.
  16. I don't have a problem with location-aware services, but I would turn off all broadcast features that tell the various social networks exactly where you are at any given time. Also, do not post a note on any social network that you're going on vacation. This is an invitation for criminals to visit you home.
  17. Don't post pictures of your children.
  18. If you have not managed your privacy settings in Facebook, you simply can't post personal photos. Do you want people outside your inner circle of family and friends to know you have young children?
  19. Children under 13 should not be on these social networks.
  20. Your children will start asking for access to social networks long before they become teenagers. Just say no. Children, in particular do not understand how emotion and intent get mixed up on social network entries and things can quickly spiral quit of control If they press, put them on Club Penguin, it's safe, fun and will likely keep them happy until they turn 13. Permit them to join social networking sites for kids

Is social networking websites safe for kids under 13 ?

Baweh online diary was publish about first social networking sites for kids under 13. Is social networking sites sites safe for tween ?
Underage kids are flocking to social networking sites like facebook, foursquare, and formspring. Are these sites safe for kids ? We all know that the legal age to use social networking sites like Tweeter, Facebook and Foursquare is 13. Yet, we all probably also know of least one if not several kids, who are younger than 13 and are using the sites.
Forget playgrounds and Pokemon cards, young kids are flocking to social networking sites in record numbers. According to a recent survey by Costumer Reports magazine, about 2.5 million Facebook users are 11 or 12 years old, and nearly 5 million Facebook users are under the age of 10.
Technically, Facebook-and other social networking sites like Google, Foursquare, and Formspring-sets the minimum age at 13 and requires new users to enter their birth date to confirm they meet the age requirements, but there is nothing they can do if a kid who was born in 2002 enters 1872 as her year of birth.
So is it a big deal? after all, 13 is just some arbitrary age set by the companies, right? The problem is that even with careful parental supervision, the potential for cyber-bullying during the tween years is huge, and kids of that young age may not be able to distance themselves from the negative comments.
Strict privacy settings can help to protect underage kids on Facebook, but it's another site, Formspring, that has experts really worried. The site is relatively new-it has only been around for 18 months, but it is sweeping through middle schools and high schools like wild fire. It's similar to facebook in that it lets users set up a profile and connect with friends. But rather then just post boring old status updates, Formspring prompts users with questions. From their website:
"Centered around a mission to help people get to know each other better, Formspring lets people share interesting and personal responses about anything that matters to them. With tens of millions of members in over 120 countries, Formspring is focused on giving people around the world a new way to relate to one another and reveal their unique stories and personalities".

Muslim Social Networking Sites

Facebook has little to fear from muslim social networking sites. Sites like and Muxlim fulfil a desire for more conservative forum but are regional and limited in scope. 
The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's IkhwanBook states that it is "an islamic social networking website, committed to the principles of our religion". Finland-based muxlim consolidates a network of services which include a search engine, a torrents finder and a Muslim MySpace, and aims to "connect the world's muslim communities to each other, and to the wider world, through shared online experiences". South Africa's muslimbook defines its objective as being "to provide a platform for all muslims to create a quality network as an alternative to the anti muslim facebook".
The emergence of Muslim social networking websites, and there are more than those mentioned above, is an interesting phenomenon that can perhaps be attributed to both a desire to produce a more conservative forum for discussion with stricter regulations (read: monitoring) as well as, in the case of the muslim brotherhood, to create a familiar-looking forum for existing and new sympathisers.
It should come as no surprise that networks and websites would emerge to cater to a particular cultural group; after all, even global social networks customize their settings culturally. Timothy bataillie, of Belgium-based Netlog, explains that "there are some extra challenges in terms of content moderation in the Arab region. We installed a moderation team that monitors traffic coming from the Gulf region. If they check pages from people outside the region, the website will display a warning notification", to warn users that they may be exposed to content potentially deemed offensive for local standards.
Those muslim social networks are simply taking the logic a step further rather than hoping for the cultural localization and customization of the website, they are establishing new ones.
IkhwanBook, which belongs to Egypt's principal political opposition force, the Muslim brotherhood, is expressly - perhaps too bluntly - politically oriented, so much so that during its first months of operation, a banner on its homepage would take you to the website of the National Association for Change, a political opposition coalition, and ask you to sign the association's petition. Technology professional Tarek Shalaby was quick to point out to the weakness of online security on IkhwanBook "anyone, upon signing in, can have access to all details of users and group members". A fatal mistake for a website that would logically be  particularly keep on protecting the identities of its members, not only from malignant internet users, but also from political components who are likely to be interested in knowing what discussions might be taking place on an IkhwanBook website.
throughout the revolution and in its immediate aftermath, the discussions on IkhwanBook website were largely political, though not necessary geared towards the political participation of the Ikhwan. But since then the mundane has rapidly regained the member's attention.
IkhwanBook site was launched in early July 2010 as a beta version, and its original website, IkhwanFacebook, made no effort to conceal its inspiration. IkhwanBook sees itself more as a complement than a competitor to Facebook - it actually allows signing in via Facebook Connect for Facebook Users.
DEspite their claims and wishes to the contrary, these social networks are both regional and religiously limited in their scope. IkwanBook - with its subtitle of "One world unites us" - has a primarily Arab membership , with a strong showing from Indonesian users. And despite its assertions that "You don;t have to be a Muslim to be a Muxlim", discussions on Muxlim are overwhelmingly in English, and largely target Muslims living in Europe and the US, while MuslimBook finds its members from within its local South African market.
All things being equal, it's doubtful these websites are hoping to be the next big thing in social networking, the weak membership numbers make it quite obvious. Besides the lack of innovation - the only "new" aspect is the stricter moderation - the demand for "clean" social networking hasn't produced the kind of site the creators may have hoped for. Most users are quite happy to be part of a more open and less monitored social network such as Facebook, even if they are offended by some of the content. After all, it doesn't seem that the current 705 members of delete group fuck islam or we all will leave Facebook have followed up on their ultimatum - the objectionable group is still there.
