Romania a incetat sa existe pentru o seara de duminica / povestiri

Nu era cald, ba chiar unii ar spune că era răcoare, sau chiar că le-ar fi frig: ziua fusese una noroasă, a bătut vîntul ore bune, aducînd cu el nori plumburii și picături de ploaie. Iar geamul era în continuare deschis, în ciuda protestelor iubitei care aproape tremura învelită în pătură și cu pantalonii prea lungi trași pînă peste talie.

Cu toate acestea, în ciuda condițiilor de mediu, transpirația îi apăruse la tîmple, iar picăturile de sudoare se adunau cu fiecare moment, în loc să dispară în aerul rece. Mai mult: cîteva o luară pe obraz în jos, prelingîndu-se ca niste lacrimi amare spre tastatura peste care stătea aplecat. Cîteva dintre ele îi căzură pe degete, dar nu le luă în seamă: lumea îi fusese zdruncinată din temelii. Tasta F5 era aproape scoasă din soclul ei, iar dacă tastatura n-ar fi fost atașată de restul laptopului probabil că ar fi aruncat-o de perete cu mult timp în urmă. Dar nu putea face asta, avea nevoie în continuare de calculator, de mobilitatea pe care o oferă, și pentru momet nu-și putea permite unul nou. Așa că nu putea decît să streseze tastele și să se streseze, reîmprospătînd mereu pagina. F5 după F5, Ctrl + F5 după Ctrl + F5 într-o încercare disperată de a trece de problema conexiunii și de a lua fișierele de pe server, dar mesajul rămînea mereu același:

    Unable to connect, Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at http://www.facebook.com.

        The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Lăsă baltă calculatorul, se întinse după telefon, … Romania a incetat sa existe pentru o seara de duminica / povestiri / Felia mea de internet / Oradea, Bihor, Romania.

Business: Benefits of social networking for your small business


Before telling you about the benefits of social networking you should have some ideas about how to use them in order to get more traffic on your websites (they are or they must become an important part of your business) and how to get known over internet using this social tool that’s available for everyone. I’ve written already a few articles about how people should behave and interact with each other on Twitter, so the subject of social networking. As Twitter becames more and more popular you should try to get a public for you message, or even you can try to find some lost friends, but it’s only one of the social networks available now. Some of its Twitter rules I’ve written work for most of the social networks, as does the strategies explained.

As you may already know, there are a lot of businesses or public figures that use social networks and they are getting all the benefits they can get from this. If you are one of these persons (a public figure or a business representative using the internet tools) you won’t find too many new things in this article. Probably you can find some new ideas or a different perspective about the internet, but if you are new in this marketing field and you are gathering information about what to do then you are exactly where you should be.

the internet: Why sports stars should be careful when using Twitter

Why sports stars should be careful when using Twitter #1

There are people saying that the sports stars are the modern gladiators competing in a world wide arena, now the the mass-media transmision (at televion, radio and online) of the sport competitions and trainings. There is a good reason for this: everybody that practice a sport have something more that an “ordinary” man, someone that sits in front of the television set or the computer and just hits the keys. Sports stars have not only the fast reaction and the stamina: they have the fame and the money, some even may say they have the aura of demigods.

The statistics say that every major company (UFC, WWE and TNA) that has embarked on usage of social media (like Twitter and Facebook) has ended up having their key business metrics (ratings, PPVs) decline. There is a reason why that happened: the stars are slowly killing their aura as stars.  The sportmen get people to talk about them, but they also make people less want to pay to see them because they understand they are realise that, after all, all athletes are still very human. The status of star was carefully developed in decades of mass-media education and entertainment and some people may lose their respect toward a sport star if they find he is just a man or a woman making the same mistake they are doing.

the internet: Why celebrities should be careful when using Twitter


For celebrities using Twitter (and social media in general) is a double-edged sword: they can connec with their fans (almost) any time, but everything they say will be dissected or misinterpreted by some people or by all his/her fans.

Celebrities should be careful when using Twitter in special because the message is short, only 140 characters, it’s a lot easier to misled people for whom your language is not their native language. I know you can not please all the people around you, especially as a celebrity, but you should consider that it’s very easy to start a debate if people are upset about some thing or another. One unhappy fan may gather around him other unhappy fans. So, when you are using Twitter be as clear as you can.

As a celebrity you should consider (if you don’t do it already) that everyone is following your tweets carefully. If you write something under the heat of the moment (the influence of emotions) you can tell people something you may don’t want to tell (at least for the moment or not at all) and everything can turn bad. In some cases such things already happened, but I am not going to give examples… you may know some of them and you can always search with yahoo, bing or google for others.

Twitter is a very good method to interact to your audience but don’t let it to take over your life. That’s an advice for everyone to consider, but celebrities should take care more seriously then others: they are followed by a lot of people because they are famous for doing something, not because their activity on Twitter.Managing the time and followers are a must from this point of view.

the internet: Why employees should be careful when using Twitter


A few years ago social networks on internet were unthinkable, something depicted from science fiction stories. Meanwhile things have changed, the internet became a part of every day life, but something remained the same as the times it was only in the imagination and plans of few people: the employers are always asking for references. Long, long time ago, when the world was in a galaxy without internet, the old fashion way as to phone the previous employer and ask him (or her) about how kind of people was the employee wanabe. Lately the job of asking references has became a lot more easier: it’s enough to search and browse the guy’s social network accounts.

The quality and the quantity of people’s tweets can be a good judge for the one who’s writing or sharing them. Some people made history with what they said, in bad and good ways… and they are or were remember for that: something written in a moment of stupidy or rage can follow the writer for the rest of his life. On the other hand, almost no employer will be interested in someone that’s loosing his time tweeting instead of doing the job he is hired to do. More, nobody will be interested in someone foolish, who speaks or writes stupid things or, at least, nothing of values.

the internet: Why politicians should be careful when using Twitter

Why politicians should be careful when using Twitter #1

Social media is something very useful when you want to send a message for the entire world in such manner that everyone interested can pick it up and read it over and over again if they are interested. Social networks can be a very powerful tools if they are used properly, if you have a good message to send and a better mind to organize the virtual world as needed. I know that the whole idea of social media interaction is treated differently around the globe, some people does not yet understand their meaning. As a old time politician, if you don’t see the use of social media stay away of them and put a specialist in communication and internet to do this job for you.

The first important thing a politician must consider when using Twitter is the misinterpretation. The length of the message is essential in Twitter: you must fit everything in only 140 characters. That’s all. It does not matter who you are (politician or not), if you want to make youself understood clearly you must write carefully every tweet you send to your followers. Misunderstanding can be translated into votes, usually in losing them. You can lose an entire campaign because you have been ambiguous in several ocasions and the word about it have been spread.

The political issues can be complicated and very hot to the public, but you have to be always objective and very clear. I am not in the position to tell you what to do, but the tweets format should encourage you to take a stand.

Remember that almost anyone can spend their time on Twitter, no matter their place in the world (the only condition is to have access to internet) and what they are using (computers, tablets… and lots and lots of phones). Your interaction with the followers can be done from the same manner: from your office, from your car (but not while driving ), from political and social meetings about hot subjects.

the internet: How to get Twitter followers



How to get Twitter followers #1

In spite the number of problems that might appear when a Twitter user has too many followers and he or she has to interact with them (those problems can be solved with a little management of time and followers), I can say for sure that the dream of (almost) every people that’s using Twitter is to have lots and lots of people reading one’s tweets… especially after he or she gets the taste of it.

Well, there a few tricks to do this job. None of them will be substitute and can never replace the most 2 important things on Twitter: be original and follow the trends. From time to time you may found yourself in the position tostart a trend, but this is another story.

Tweet often, but create space for reactions from your followers

Common sense says and some personal observation say that the number of followers is directly proportional with how active you are on Twitter. By tweeting you are making waves, you say something in the world of Twitter and sooner or later someone, somewhere, somehow will hear you and will follow you. Of course, remeber what I’ve said earlier about originality. If you tweet too regularly and about nothing that worths reading you risk losing your followers.

Be conversational

Twitter is a microblogging site but, after all, it’s a social network. It became important because it offers an interesting method to communicate & interact with others: every time when you reply to someone and when he or she reply you everyone else see the conversation – your tweets are expodes to every user on Twitter, thousands of followers or potentionally followes that can responde to them.

Asking questions is one of the best way to start a conversation on Twitter, reply to the answers you get and put another questions. You may get your answers, but you may also get new followers.
