Foursquare, big numbers

I like foursquare, yes I do. It really doesn’t matter how they monetize the company -at least not for this post- but it’s amazing to have a look on their page The last three months on foursquare where they show us 500 million of checkin’s. Amazing, isn’t it?.

Even more, you may have a more closer info by searching your country or city. Some examples, and by the way, compare by yourself:

And you may try by yourself your own city, now, what it’s really important; have ever thought about the inmense amount of information about customers habits that Foursquare keeps in its system?

If you have a company, have you ever consider take advantage from this and work together with social media?

PD: I’m also re-testing scheduling post on my blog.

Obtener una URL personal en Facebook

Una URL personal en Facebook es una dirección web para nuestro perfil mucho más fácil de recordar. En un uso profesional de las redes sociales es fundamental tener una, sobre todo para la página de empresa.

Los pasos a seguir son:

  1. Entramos en Facebook con el usuario para el que vamos a crear la dirección corta
  2. Pulsamos en el menu desplegable de la parte superior derecha y pulsamos en “Configuración de la cuenta”
  3. Si no estamos en la opción “General” pulsamos sobre ella, y luego sobre “Nombre de usuario”
    Elegimos el nombre (por ejemplo de empresa), se comprobará si está disponible
  4. Tecleamos nuestra contraseña de Facebook y pulsamos en guardar y listo

Tengamos presente que Facebook cambia frecuentemente sus opciones y la operativa para acceder a ellas o modificarlas, así que aseguraos que estos pasos siguen vigentes.

Addthis at this blog

Finally I took a few minutes to install, register and configure the plugin Addthis for WordPress.

Addthis more interesting feature is statistics, not just add those famous buttons for Social Media easy sharing. Nowadays is crucial to know who shares your content, it gives you an incredible feedback in order to improve your website, social media impact on SEO, SEM and SMO.

And about how Addthis may help us with statistics, they explain it better than me:

WordPress + LinkedIn is more powerful social media profile

A colleague (& friend) ask for my CV and I’ve drop him two lines with two URL’s, one from my obsolete web page CV (just in Spanish) and the other one from my more accurate (although not perfect) pbenavent’s LinkedIn profile.

So I get into LinkedIn in order to check how old my uncomplete my profile is. Then I start to correct it and going up & down through it I realize LinkedIn have done a simple but practical improvement.

Try it by yourself but for instance, if tag a wordpress post with linkeding tag it must appear at my LinkedIn. It let’s you enrich your profile more easily and again, Social Media is the new thing by connecting networks, professional, personal, all in all.
