Social Media Is A Joke

The team over at The Onion has come up with a hilarious TED-esque speech on Social Media. Check out this video below (found from Mashable) as a fake social media consultant talks about how easy using Twitter and Facebook really is. Enjoy!

Oh, You Fancy! – My review on TheFancy.com

I just wrote a review on TheFancy.com yesterday (on the awesome social media marketing blog I contribute to monthly called Bad Rhino Rumblings), and I highly recommend you all:

A) Read my review, thanks!

and

B) Check out The Fancy itself! The site is a cool spin-off of Pinterest, but allows you to buy straight from the site. The funky items and products you’ll find will never give you an excuse to give lame presents to friends and family from now on.

I mean where else could you find the following items:

Hand want pencils.

 

Speaking of random hands in pop culture, hello Wednesday Addams.

What happened? Oh right, a shark bite. My bad.

Let me know what you think of the site after you take it for a spin! 🙂

How do you use social media?

Check out this 30 second interview from Fast Company (if you haven’t heard of this site, then add it to your list of daily reads asap!) with email application Tout Founder & CEO, Tawheed Kader on how his company uses social media. He also happens to by my friend Shahed’s older brother! Love seeing fellow Bengalis be successful in their endeavors. Keep it up both of you!

Click on the image below to watch the video! I would have embed it into this post, but my version WordPress is pretty restricting. ><

Looking to get hired?

Check out Tischen.com! An extremely easy application that I just so happened to stumble upon through Twitter today. Connected via Facebook, one click on their homepage and you’ll have a new home base for future job opportunities! Easily navigate for job titles and locations at the top to even find available services through other connected Tischen-ers. I give this website a 7 out of 10 on my Social Media scale-o-meter because of its easy to use navigation and mission to create jobs for the unemployed. Founder Saman Rahmanian (@saman325) claims to have started Tischen because there were no available websites to search for freelancers or contractors, nor see their availability. Tischen allows users to see locations and vicinities of employees, as well as utilize a calendar to view their available times! Tischen incorporates practical and easy functions into one website, allowing anyone from a plumber to a lawyer to effectively help create their own brand or image for hire. My only hesitation to rate this website higher my fear that not a lot of enough people know about this catchy website, causing the hopeful to maybe become hopeless. I’ll be creating my own homepage on Tischen, so let’s see if it works!

Some cool features I’ve just found:
-Tischen’s in-house promotion tools! Not only can you create links to all your social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Craigslist, Linkedin, etc.) but you can create flyers, business cards and more using Tischen’s own template linked to your profile. This is a huge plus for lots of professionals with no creative background. Great idea Tischen! **Update** Check out my new widget for hiring no the right side of this page!
-Did I mention the navigational tools for editing on this site are simply amazing!? All in all, I think I’m in love!

I pressed one button and voila, my very own Tischen page had been created using information from my Facebook! Neato!
