OK, so FaceBook made their huge announcements this week with all their great new features for web sites.  In turn, they also made a lot of information available to any web site that asks.  I've seen a lot of posts on FaceBook over the last few hours telling everyone to shut off certain settings regarding personalization.  So, I thought I'd take a second to explain how this works and that you need not worry!FaceBook does provide information to any web site that asks FaceBook for it, about any person

There is a lot of talk out there about Social Media, what you may not understand is how to use Social Media with your own web site.  So we're going to give you some tips.First, in case you're not aware Social Media means the social networking sites such as FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn.In our experience, the best tools are FaceBook and Twitter, and in that order.  Before you setup these accounts/pages you need to have a purpose for them.  Simply getting everyone to be your fan on FaceBook and setting up a twitter account and following 6 million people won't do much for you.  Yes you need to get fans and followers but, more importantly you need a reason for them to want to see your updates.  You can use those tools to announce special offers, sales, new products

So the BlackBerry systems are down, they've been down for hours.  I like many, thought it was just my BlackBerry until I talked to my fiance and low and behold hers was flaky too.  So I called Verizon, they told me that it was a "Research In Motion BlackBerry server issue, its been down this morning and they hope to resolve it soon, and there is no ETA". Comforting words, no ETA.  I've been in tech industry for a long time, and whenever no ETA is issued its for one of two reasons.  1.  You don't want to give false expectations and end up creating more problems or 2.
