Introducing FriendFilter, A Better Way to Make Friends on Twitter

A few weeks ago, I alluded to a new Twitter application that would eventually debut to help qualify the people who follow you on Twitter. Good friend and developer extraordinaire Christopher Peri and I proudly introduce FriendFilter in Beta. I’ve collaborated with Peri in the past to develop @microPR (along with Stowe Boyd), MicroJobs, and other apps soon to be released. His vision and technical prowess are ahead of many and I’m lucky to know him. FriendFilter improves the signal…

Twitter and Social Networks Usher in a New Era of Social CRM

In a conversation recently with good friend Jeremiah Owyang, he encouraged and motivated me to finally publish this post… Over the last decade, Social Media has slowly evolved not only as a new content publishing, sharing, and discovery medium, but more importantly as a peer-to-peer looking glass into the real world conversations that affect the perception, engagement, and overall direction of the brands we represent. Socialized media didn’t invent “conversations,” it simply organized and amplified them. My foray into the…

Perception is Everything

It’s not just about what you want me to think, it’s about what I hear and in turn, share with others. You can help shape my perception and perhaps, even influence it, but my perception is defined by my experiences, thoughts, beliefs, predispositions, and personal agenda. Tell me again why I should listen to you? Connect with me on Twitter, Jaiku, LinkedIn, Pownce, Plaxo, FriendFeed, or Facebook.
