Change to the Facebook Profile

I’m using the new Profile page!!! It’s fun to play with….

Finally, some individuality is coming back to the Profile pages of Facebook. It’s really quite exciting. Anyway, I’m very excited about. Yes, I know….. more changes. Oh how we humans hate change and grumble at Facebook for constantly making us go through change after change after change.

But, really. You’re going to enjoy this one. It’s going to make it fun to cruise around and look at everyone’s Profile pages. Most of the time we never even visit our “friends” Profiles. Why should we, they all look alike.

The only difference is that small mug shot over on the left. And maybe once in a while we stop in to check out the picture albums. But all of this can be done from our own Home page, so why take the time to venture out.

Here’s a picture of my new Timeline on Facebook (with some notes attached to it.)

 

Facebook Cover

 

The Cover is like a large website header. You can upload your favorite picture or create something special that represents who you are. And we can change the Cover whenever we want. Yes, this is going to make cruising FB fun again.

When is it coming to everyone. Well….. it was suppose to be the end of Sept, then early in Oct 2011. I don’t know. When it’s ready I guess…. Learn more about the new Profile Timeline.

Picasso and Social Media

Picasso

Picasso

I just read a fantastic article by Pamela Wilson over at Copyblogger.com titled “The Picasso Guide to Becoming a Social Media Legend.”

For those of you non-reading artists, the article does scroll down a ways, but it’s really worth the read. You’ll learn some interesting things both about Picasso as well as Social Media.

Rather you’re a Picasso art fan or not, the man definitely operated some disciplines in his life that we all can learn something from.

  • Change your game, because the game is always changing.
  • Get a posse.
  • Draw inspiration from the world around you.
  • Work. Work. Work. And work some more.

So, head on over to Copyblogger and enjoy the read.

How to Set up Google Reader to Follow Blogs

If you regularly read at least five blogs then you want to consider using an RSS feed reader.  This gives you the convenience of having all the updates located in one place.

RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication.”  Most blogs allow you to “subscribe” to their updates in two different ways, just as I do.  One is via email updates and the other by using the RSS reader option.

Email updates are great if you are only following a couple blogs.  As your list gets longer and email boxes get fuller, this may not be the answer for you.

There are several different types of RSS feeders on the Internet.  I’m going to show you how to set up the one I use, which is the Google Reader.  It’s probably the most popular one out there and with good reason.

So, let’s dive in so you can go get your Google Reader set up.

First, go to http://google.com and find and click on the “more” link.

Google ReaderThen scroll down and click on “Reader.”

Google Reader 2

When you click on Reader you’ll be taken to the login page.

To login, you’ll need to use your Google ID.

Don’t have one?  Click the “Create an account” and fill in the form to set it up.  As you can see in the drop down list that Google has many free tools.
