I know we all have quite a bit of issues with Facebook’s privacy settings that keeps on changing. So what’s happening next with this social media giant? Apparently they are preparing to launch a new app on April 12th. Not quite sure how this will affect the privacy settings again.

In any case, this app will supposedly simplify the way we connect  with our friends… maybe something a little bit better than Google+ ? Here’s what’s in store in for the new Facebook Home

Why Five Days in the Office Is Too Many March 4, 2013

Here’s a good explanation why. The idea that everyone must be in the office five days a week harks back to a time when workers didn’t have the proper tools to work from home. But we live in a very different world today. Given that technology has made employees accessible around the clock, and that they are often expected to work after hours, the traditional 40-hour schedule is in many ways an anachronism.

However, this writer have a valid point why sometimes, it is a good idea to have everyone at the office. Why Five Days in the Office Is Too Many.

Facebook apps add free calls March 3, 2013

Did you know that Facebook recently allowed users to make free calls to friends at the leading social network using its application tailored for iPhones or iPads.

An updated Facebook “app” for the popular Apple mobile devices shows when friends are online and then gives the option of ringing them up by tapping an icon on the screen.

Calls are routed over the Internet using telecom service data plans or connections to Wi-Fi hotspots. Facebook introduced a version of the feature earlier this year in its messenger program.

Upgrades in the Facebook 5.5 app included a button designed to make it easier to “like” online content and post comments at the social network.

Facebook Logo

Facebook has recently announced that they are making more changes on the website. Apparently, Facebook is testing out a new, slimmed-down version of its Timeline pages. The new design takes away the large, graphical rectangles for friends, photos, map and followers, and replaces them with smaller, text-only boxes.

TheNextWeb reports that ads were moved lower on each page’s right-hand rail, and the company is making it even easier to “like” individual pages. Apps, Likes, Notes and Photos are getting more prominence, moving to a special section on the left side of the page.

The changes are being quietly tested in New Zealand. Facebook will track engagement with the new features to see if they lead to longer session times, more clicks and better ad impressions.

If successful, the redesign will roll out to the rest of the world. Will these changes take place on March 7? I guess we’ll wait and see.

Now that we have cleared New Year and Chinese New Year, I think most businesses in Asia are getting back on their feet and starting to roll back into life. Google has announced today that they are launching Chromebook Pixel, which means more Cloud Computing and in turn fires up the Social Media scene to a new level.

There are still companies out there who think that Social Media is all about fun and games on Facebook and Twitter. All I can say is that they are missing out an avenue to communicate and understand their consumers.

My business partner who is a PR expert and myself have been asked many times how useful is social media in an organizations. While have we tried explaining how things work over coffee and drawing at the back of napkins, we thought it will be a whole lot better if we just hold a workshop. But we are going to limit the number of attendees so its cozier. It will be taking place early next month in Singapore. So stay tuned.

Hello World! Welcome to my first blog post.

Well, not exactly. As some readers may notice, this is not my first time blogging. I was blogging on my company’s website quite sometime back before it was revamped. The silly thing is, I have forgotten to back it up before clearing the server and so, it was history.

So here I am again, this time on WordPress talking about business & tech stuff. Talking about tech stuff, could someone let me know if Google Analytics works with WordPress? See… I’m not so geeky after all.
