Social media sites, 2012-2013


Please Rob Me

Today at a networking group I belong to, the discussion turned to social media and how much personal information some people share on those sites.  This site came across my desk later in the day.  http://pleaserobme.com/

This is from the “Why” page of the site.

“The danger is publicly telling people where you are. This is because it leaves one place you’re definitely not… home. So here we are; on one end we’re leaving lights on when we’re going on a holiday, and on the other we’re telling everybody on the internet we’re not home.”


John Quincy Adams a tweeter?

When a visitor to the Massachusetts Historical Society noticed that the short entries in one of  the dairies written by John Quincy Adams were similiar to tweets posted on Twitter, that gave the historical society an idea–post the line-a-day entires to Twitter.

200 years ago, on 5 August 1809,  John Quincy Adams set sail to Russia to serve as the the first American ambassador.  The historical society intends to post the diary entries detailing the voyage and supplement with maps, photos and links to longer diary entries.

Hmmm, does posting the line-a-day entries constitute a RT?
