I can’t tell if Burger King’s twitter is a joke or not. (It’s not.)
These guys: hid a treasure in NYC and gave clues to find it! And not just ANY treasure…. $10,000! We Lost our Gold uses videos and Twitter to give clues to where the money is hidden, and to get folks out and about in the city. I’m very interested to learn more about how this… Continue reading Wow! A $10,000 real life treasure hunt!!

And education activists, is there anything being done to teach media smarts to kids in… Continue reading Social Media as News Platform…Watch Out!
When I started using foursquare one month ago, I was curious, cynical, and feeling left out of a new cool thing. Here’s what happened: I’ve used it every day. I check in when I’m at 1) a place I enjoy, 2) a place where I’ve purchased a food or drink item, 3) a place where lots of other… Continue reading Foursquare – A Month in Review
