Inside the Social Media - A Beginners Look (from LifeNuggets blog)

 This entry is from my LifeNuggets blog - it discusses  my Social Media Findings. It was written back in October 2009. 
  With some things we do in Social Media, one may wonder how anyone gets anywhere with the endless amount of information available at any given time, and in real time to boot! It amazes me that with Twitter you can get news about things WAY ahead of CNN or any other news outlet. It just goes to show how powerful a tool it can be, if used correctly.
I've been riding this Social Media train now for about three months, am looking ahead and can see an almost endless potential for what social media can do for me, and for you too. As mentioned before a good place to start is Twellow it's a Twitter directory, broken down in a variety of ways - first you can look for folks to follow via directory, or simply type in a keyword, say 'voiceover' - you will find my profile at #5 - (as of February 2010 I am now 13th) the site also give you good and detailed information about the 'tweeters' you find, as well as some of their most recent updates.
If your looking for a more 'newsy' approach to Social Media, and the latest 'headlines' click over to Social Media Today. Of course, SMT will also give you other places to check out within Social Media too - so your getting more than just headlines.
Finally, at least for this shortened blog entry, another place that is amazing and filled with good 'nuggets' of information from some great sources is Twine. You have to join this site, but you can see the value on the homepage alone. Once a member search for Social Media(as well as any other interests you have), join some groups, and Twine will send you an email digest to 'digest' at your leisure - pretty cool.
Lastly, I have found several sites that help me with housekeeping(passwords, cleanup, etc.) remembers passwords and uses a 3x4 shield for 'your' identity - it's also
OpenID compatible

Comodo offers free security solutions(Firewall, Antivirus, Email Spam) software is reliable and
updates regularly

Tweetdeck specifically for 'Twitter' - allows 'groups' to easily follow certain people - is fully
integrated and even includes Facebook updates as well

Manta  - place to list your small business - allows you to integrate Facebook and Twitter updates and offers a 'clean' template to list your business.

VodPod - allows you to easily integrate videos from social media sites including YouTube, into a clean, streamlined player that allows 'customers' to remain on your site and view your media. (to see it in action visit my site and see the bar on the right)

 if you have other sites worth mentioning or if you found this helpful, please let me know be sending me an email:
