Twitter: Getting Younger & Stronger

October 22, 2009 Leave a comment

According to research from Pew Internet Twitter is not only growing fast, as we already knew, but it it attracts a younger audience than the other social networks.

“Some 19% of internet users now say they use Twitter or another service to share updates about themselves, or to see updates about others. This represents a significant increase over previous surveys in December 2008 and April 2009, when 11% of internet users said they use a status-update service.”

“Internet users age 18-44 report rapid uptake of Twitter over the last nine months, whereas internet users ages 45 and older report slower adoption rates. For example, 37% of internet users age 18-24 use Twitter or another service, up from 19% in December 2008.

The median age of a Twitter user is 31, which has remained stable over the past year. The median age for MySpace is now 26, down from 27 in May 2008, and the median age for LinkedIn is now 39, down from 40. Facebook, however, is graying a bit: the median age for this social network site is now 33, up from 26 in May 2008.”

Over the weekend I decided to launch a social media experiment that would create worldwide recognition, awareness and a fine display of hometown pride for Boston. So with that I decided to tweet the following at 10:18 am Est Monday October 19 via @BostonTweet

Can we do it? Make #BostonIsBetter a No. 1 trending topic & tell the world why #BostonIsBetter than other US cities.

To my huge surprise it worked! Bostonians are raving about their city, NY is getting upset at us and #BostonIsBetter has become the 5th most popular topic on Twitter in just 6 hours! It cracked the top 10 in under 2 hours.

Ahhh, the power of Twitter.

WFNX – My Song is Better Than Your Song

August 28, 2009 Leave a comment

On Thursday I had the pleasure to be on The Sandbox at WFNX for My Song is Better Than Your Song to compete against Boston mayoral candidate Sam Yoon. My choice, U2’s Bullet the Blue Sky – my all time favorite Edge song where he let’s the guitar, distortion and energy rip through his amp via a bluesy strat.

Sam’s choice was Under Pressure by Queen and Bowie. Being a massive U2 fan in Boston, where U2 fans are plentiful, I thought I would easily secure the votes needed to defeat the unstoppable Sam Yoon. However, once again Sam Yoon won handily with a 2:1 victory over BostonTweet. Even with the loss, my time on WFNX was an absolute blast! After a few minutes of butterflies I was at ease behind the microphone and quickly became addicted to being on the radio.

A very special thanks for the invitation to @SandboxCharlie, @SandboxFletcher and Special Ed (sorry Ed I couldn’t remember your Twitter ID).

sayagle_logoAfter more than a year of development Sayagle is almost here. Sayagle is the first location based social networking marketplace that connects consumers with friends and merchants in real time. By integrating the web with mobile communications, social mapping, instant messaging and enterprise level security Sayagle has created one of the safest and most effective collaboration and networking platforms known.

mockup-IM-loginSayagleIM enables friends, classmates and colleagues to communicate across all mediums & networking platforms for unrestricted messaging. With drag and drop file transfers classmates & colleagues can collaborate on files no matter the size or number of recipients. Have an event to promote? Create and distribute the logistics via SayagleIM for broadcast to your connections. Think of SayagleIM as command central that controls all of your communication across the major Internet platforms – while also notifying you of events hosted by friends and discounts from your favorite merchants.

When online SayagleWeb combines your real world with the virtual one by being the first platform to effectively create a symbiotic relationship between merchant and customers. This symbiotic relationship enables customers to request bulk discounts from merchants by forming influential buying groups centered around a specific product or service. For merchants, Sayagle’s advanced coomunication tools give you a direct form of communication with users to broadcast last minute specials & bulk discounts to customers.

mockup-phone-iconSet to launch in September 2009, Sayagle Mobile integrates SuperDeals with the communication features of SayagleIM and the mapping of Sayagle Web. On Sayagle Mobile SuperDeals are published to you based on both your home address and your current physical location. Sayagle Mobile is also highly focused on security! With the Sayagle SOS button users can instantly notify emergency contacts of their exact whereabouts in times of distress – giving everyone peace of mind.

Sayagle is the brainchild of Ken Huang who built Sayagle on robust clusters of state-of-art server infrastructure with high availability and implemented with the latest stable enterprise level virtualization technologies and SAN storage. Ken leads a team of experienced professionals who individually have at least 13 years of IT infrastructure experience, 10 years of R&D experience and 8 years of business experience.
