Geeky Weekend

Pinterest helped me Geek out Dad’s Day

Retro handset for Smartphone

I hope all the Geeky Dad’s out there enjoyed their day yesterday! We celebrated here quietly since all of our kids are off on an adventure. I purchased this as a gag but when my husband opened it and discovered that it actually works great  he decided it was one of his best gifts ever. Maybe not the best gift but close to it. It really enhances the clarity of the call, allows access to phone features via a button on the inside of the handset and can be used with a tablet when making Skype calls. It is made of silicone so it is quite comfortable to hold. Here is a link to the product sold by Sharpen Image via my pin on Pinterest

It’s in The Cloud 

I’ve been asked where listeners can download the new Social Geek song that we play for our opening and GeekItOut segment. Skyler Fox did a fantastic job putting together a 30 second intro for us and it is becoming popular. I’m sure it will soon be a favorite ring tone for many! Skyler uploaded the song to SoundCloud for easy download and sharing http://bit.ly/JVqz07  SocialCloud is a great site that allows you to capture audio and upload to their site, making it accessible for others to download. You can connect with Skyler on LinkedIn but he is best known as @BeefyFunk on Twitter.

Digital Identity

You may not want to throw away those paper business cards but you should consider setting up your digital profile. AK Stout shared this link on Social Geek Radio months ago but I finally decided to GeekItOut and set up my own profile. Follr.com allows you to set up one address for all your digital profiles. Are you a LinkedIn member, Pin to Pinterest, Tweet and/or have a blog? If so, you can link them all to your own Follr account! There is also a tab allowing documents to be uploaded. My eBook on Social Technology Marketing Strategies for Franchising uploaded in a few short minutes.

Out with the Old in with the New

I designed a new Website this weekend for Deb Evans Consulting. You will find this post on the site. For now I will continue with this blog and I hope you will  visit the new site www.debevansconsulting.com and consider following. As always, I’m open to suggestions to improve the content and sharing!

2011 Tech Trends

I have really enjoyed the last few days of the year with family. Working a little here and there. No surprise that I’m  Tweeting, checking in with Foursquare, posting to Facebook, viewing LinkedIn status updates and now “pinning” thanks to AK Stout and Lisa Johnson who introduced me to pinterest. I think I will soon post a blog “Help me please! I’m addicted to another social media platform!”

Today, I’m thinking about the top tech trends of 2011 and contemplating what will be in store for us in 2012.

Top Tech Trends of 2011

My friend Gini Dietrich, CEO of Arment Dietrich says she believes 2012 will be the year of “integration of all disciplines.” She says:

This is kind of selfish one on my part (because I have a book coming out about it), but integration is going to be crucial next year. Today we talk about mobile, social, marketing, public relations, advertising, direct, email, customer service, and sales as if they’re working in silos. But 2012 is the year it needs to integrate. Customer service can’t do its job without talking to sales. Sales needs the help of public relations. And mobile can’t live without marketing. You’ll see these disciplines all work together, as if they’re in a circle, and not in silos.

What do you think 2012 has in store for social media and tech trends?
