Discussing Social Media: How to add a video on Pinterest:
Did you know that you can add video on Pinterest? I didn't!
As it seems, Pinterest is not just for sharing pictures, but also for sharing videos. This allows Pinterest to attract even bigger audience, by creating video boards with their content. Except for the common users that will enjoy creating boards with their favourite singers and movies, it can also serve as a great marketing idea, for those that promote their brands/content on Youtube, for example.
All you have to do is use the "Pin it" button and share any video you want, in any of your boards. You can also upload your own videos, by using "Add" and "Upload" on Pinterest.
Enjoy that great feature then!

Posted by Fergal Glynn in INFOGRAPHICS, Did you know that during the course of this year, the number of Wi-Fi connected devices will exceed the world’s population? This incredible statistic highlights the ubiquitous nature of Wi-Fi. However, the convenience of having public Wi-Fi available practically everywhere comes at the cost of greater risk to users. This infographic delves into the anatomy of a Wi-Fi hack and simple precautions Wi-Fi users should take to ensure that they are surfing safely.

Everyday in life we have choices...
Example: We can be driving and somebody cuts us off, and in that very moment we can choose to get pissed off and let it ruin our day or let it go and move on with our day.
I finally got clear that when I am driving I like to either have some audio book on where I am engaged in listening and learning something or to listen to music that I Love and I just start singing my heart out... That way no matter what happens when I am driving, I already am in a good state of happiness and can shift right back into that space if something unpleasant does happen when I am driving...
At the end of the day Life is Precious and can be gone in a blink of a second... I used to work at World Trade Center Tower 2 and missed the planes by ONE hour, because a client of mine cancelled our appointment the night before. Normally, I still would have gone in early except that one day I decided oh heck, why not sleep in an extra 30 minutes... I used to commute from the NJ side to the NY side 4 days a week for work so that extra sleep was something that was much appreciated as those 4 days were 12 hour days.
In my opinion life is too short to get pissed off at things you sometimes don't have control over. I attempt to live my Life from a space of Heart centered LOVE as much as possible...
What do YOU Choose ???
Thank You all for being a part of the World's

To me Social Media is all about:
#SocialMediaLOVE #Collaboration #Teamwork #PayingiItForwardTheRippleEffect #Sharing #Authenticity #Referrals #LetsDoIt
These are truly interesting times in the Social Media World...
I think the World of the internet has mostly been a fountain of inspiration and a help for many that are shut ins... and for massive resources of all kinds and unfortunately I also think the internet has also created self-imposed shuts ins.
-We can find anything we need on the internet.
-Met amazing people from around the world.
-Improve our outreach for clients for our businesses
-Create cash flow from our websites
-It has provided disabled homebound people with a way to
communicate and interact with others.
The Questions I find interesting about the world of the internet:
Do You trust yourself and others ???
Are You willing to meet people from across the world you
have never met ???
Are You using Social Media authentically ???
Do You respond yourself or use automation ???
Is Social Media just a numbers game to You ???
Do You say one thing on the internet and then in your private world do another ???
Are You really where you say you are ???
What type of Social Media person are You- Introvert or Extrovert ???
To me the World is my family, and I have met some AMAZING people from around the world on the internet. I will share a story of how amazing... I just relocated back to CA. in Jan of 2012, from the Big Island of Hawaii where I lived for 3 yrs.
While I lived in Hawaii I met an amazing person whom I became good friends with over the internet, we talked almost everyday, yet we never had physically met, well one day on a business trip where I was supposed to stay feel thru, and YES, I could have stayed at a hotel, yet as I sat on a chair after I got my luggage with the news of my stay with friends having fallen thru and I got really quiet, and all of a sudden I had this inner voice say call "_______".
I called this person and they were like absolutely, and it was the most amazing, fun, in depth conversation ever... Now mind you, his friends and my friends were telling each of us are you YOU NUTS this person could be crazy, dangerous etc... All you have done is talk on the phone...
My point is ONE must use their intuition, FEEL from their HEART not your belly where the butterflies of fear live... I have traveled across the country to meet people I have never met in person- males and females... One must take risks in live... Be daring, bold to expand, learn and grow...
I am for the most part a fearless person, I am not saying I don't have certain things that I don't like or am afraid of like "SNAKES" LOL... Just saying I don't live from a place of fear in my daily live... and I am sooo GRATEFUL for that...
The funny thing is, on the phone and in person people tell me WOW... You are one of the most high energy, positive, passionate person I have met, and would have to agree that when I am on stage, performing, speaking, in front of the camera or live I am quiet the extrovert.... Yet once I am settled in I am very much the introvert, quiet a homebody... Hm...
I have to say that in today's world of Social Media, I think it has truly helped those that are primarily introverts reach out and connect with others. I also think it has helped the disabled population and those who can't get out, have interaction and develop a circle of friends and build a support system.
On the other hand, we have people that have become so attached to Social Media they do nothing except surf on the computer and it consumes their life, and they become shut ins...
So at what point does Social Media become a problem ???
And... to what degree are you being honest when you are socializing in the Social Media world. I have found some of Social Media to leave a BAD TASTE in my mouth because Social Media has become a numbers game, a score and some folks are NOT being authentic and honest.
Example: Foursquare: It is meant to share where You are, what you do, and tips for others, instead I have seen people just to raise their scores checking into places they aren't even at....
Empire Avenue: People clicking on missions and not doing the missions, and just collecting the Eaves...
WHAT the heck is that all about... Come on people...
Are you that desperate to be the leader on a board and what does that say about you ?
And... then of course we have all of the computer programs to do the work for us, auto responders etc... again which I can understand if You are a large company or famous... Yet my take on that is, if you have a large company or are famous PAY a Virtual assistant with a POSITIVE caring, I can do attitude to handle it for you, so there is still a HUMAN element... Ok another pet peeve, Please CREATE Your OWN replies, in Your OWN words, so that it reflects YOU and not the assistant's words or style...
I can always tell when it is an automated statement and or when an assistant has written the response versus the person I am contacting because most of the time I know them and their writing style and their personal words they like to use etc... Meaning their personality... We are human beings after all that like real HUMAN caring and interaction...
Solution: one thing that I do is I have created all of these replies and action steps and have them in my email draft and a doc on my desktop so my assistant can just cut and paste my replies and I also have them leave me the DIRECT emails for me. And... I have a list of people the VA's know to leave for me, I communicate directly with my inner circle people... Why is it called SOCIAL MEDIA if we aren't willing to interact or socialize with others and truly show we actually care...
Ok the last thing that really drives me insane about the tech world...
How many of You are silently cursing in your head when you call a number and you get these LONG messages with Please select option 1, 2, 3 etc... or a computer voice saying "how may I assist you" ? And then the voice says, Sorry I didn't get that, did you say this... PLEASE that is such a WASTE of time... I would much rather have a live voice who knows the answers or where to direct me then wasting my time on a phone with a computer when half the time I am still going to have to speak to a live person anyway and I just wasted 10 minutes navigating the options and sorry I didn't understand that, let me connect you to an operator... LOL... Yes, there is the short cut hit "OOO" for operator a ton of times LOL... and eventually after a few repeated "OOO's" you finally get connected.
So what was the POINT in writing this Blog...
The point was to bring to everyone's awareness, are they truly being authentic in the game of Social Media, are they truly creating Collaborations, sharing, and team work, or are they strictly in it for a higher klout score and automation...
Please leave Comments on what your feelings are about Social Media, Automation, and the Numbers game...
Also, if You have some unique tips and tools on how to solve some of these issues, share them...
Thank You all for being a part Co-Creation, Collaboration and Team work.... Team work is what makes the dreams work...
