Today was the first ever Frozen Pea Friday. Through the power of social networking and the highly-addictive (and effective!) micro-blogging platform, Twitter, the community created incredible solidarity to support Susan Reynolds as she underwent surgery for breast cancer today. Such courage. Such support. Blows me away. The idea behind Frozen Pea Friday is to donate…Read More
A participant in my Facebook Fortunes class recently posed this challenge to me: “Hi Mari, My name is Sara and I am a newbie 🙂 I just sent you a message from Facebook too. In fact that’s part of my question. I’m on Plaxo, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, MSN Messenger, Gmail, Gmail Chat, MySpace, have three…Read More
Do you have a clearly defined personal policy for requesting and accepting friends on Facebook? I sure hope so. Over-friending can get your profile shut down in a heartbeat by the FB police (this happened to two of my buddies recently). The bad news is you’ll lose ALL your accepted friends, posts, emails, installed apps…Read More

If you haven’t heard or read something about Facebook Beacon in the past couple weeks, perhaps you’ve had your head in the sand? 🙂 I think the furor is about the fact online consumers are being “forced” to reveal their shopping habits, not so much that the system exists. We have to take action to…Read More
I’m delighted to share my interview with Internet Multi-Millionaire, Matt Bacak. I’ve followed Matt’s success for several years and was glad to see he joined Facebook a little while back. Of course, I made sure we became Friends. Then, I messaged Matt to see if he’d be willing to share a few of his insider…Read More
The jury’s still out for me – how about you? So far, I think Facebook Pages could well be a nifty feature for established businesses, bands, celebrities and the likes, as they can easily “migrate” their fan base over. But, for the “small guy”, hm, I’m not so sure. Could FB Pages be used to…Read More
Are you using your Facebook email as much as your “regular” email? On most days, I certainly am! And, I’m finding it darn annoying to not have these features: Store emails in folders. Search all emails. Forward emails. Sort by name or subject. View/retrieve deleted emails. I’d also like to collapse threads (a la Gmail).…Read More
