FOURSQUARE – a commercial users perspective

A venue owner shares his perspective of FOURSQUARE going as far to say it has the potential to be the new Twitter – what he seems to have neglected however is that FOURSQUARE can connect with Facebook & twitter – by doing so FOURSQUARE covers its bases and leverages on the 2 most successful social media platforms to date to attrract new users to its platform. – APLINK

ps: I am also trialing brightkite – which I kinda like due to its intergration with images from your mobile device.

Foursquare a new social media application launched last year in March. I have a feeling that Foursquare will grow exponentially in 2010 becoming the new social media hit and let me explain you why.

Foursquare is a location-based social network mobile application that helps you connect with venues and friends using GPS via your mobile device. Foursquare is a win-win situation. It pleases the patrons and the venue owners. In Foursquare there is a social mechanism where people say where they are hanging out or staying and through a built in g ame system it will reward them for doing so, with badges and titles.

The system really empowers the venue owner, it helps identify his customers with their real names ( sometimes it is hard on twitter) and it helps to know who comes in more often. I see it as a technological loyalty system without the cost of it as it all comes integrated in the apps. The application also includes the suggestion’s area with tips and to do list for future people checking in at the same venue..and it also helps the patrons being identified for what they really are i.e.: newbie, local and loyal. Foursquare triggers some sort of respect-benefit for the patrons in the acknowledgement of the title that the patrons have gained through checking in to the venue multiple times. Patrons will also enjoy the shared tips and recommended to do list that other patrons have left for them. To me, as a venue owner, it is a super cool application, and it makes a lot of sense from any point of view.

Aiming Your Company at the Bottom of the Barrel – UnMarketing

Judging by the size of Yellow Pages they are still able to offer ROI – if not how do they sell – APLINK tends to think that like alot of activity I undertake in Social Media – some may look at the Yellow Pages as a meer Signpost to their door – that they choose to pay for, to some it is even irrelevant whether the ad results in any sales at all.

I (APLINK) sometimes forget that even though myself and people I know are very internet SAVVY – there remains a HUGE part of the global population that are not. I believe for the short to medium term this community needs to have traditional methods of living. In Australia some years ago BANKS tried to force everyone to use Internet Banking – was that realistic – no it was not then and is still not today.

But this post by UnMarketing is a worthy read – excerpt below

1. You’re aiming at the bottom of the barrel: No, I’m not saying people who use them are the lowest of the low, it’s that they’ve gone through every other resource that influences them to potentially buy before pulling out the directory. Have a look:

This is the Hierarchy of Buying I came up with 5 years ago after surveying a thousand or so people on how they hired a service provider. So your potential customer doesn’t already have a provider, doesn’t know anyone who could perform the service, doesn’t know anyone who knows anyone and hasn’t even heard of anyone in the field. So no relationships, no word-of-mouth. Nothing. (I should really make a new one, since Google would rank above Yellow Pages.)

2. Paper spam: Email spam works on the premise that if you blast it to a million people, a fraction of a fraction may be in the market for the product and a fraction of that may even click. Phone directories work on this same premise. 1.6 billion pounds of paper per year are used to produce the 500 million directories that go out in the United States every year in the hopes that you may be in the market for one of the 2,000 categories of businesses that are listed. It’s spam at its finest. You didn’t opt-in, the majority of people don’t use it, many not even taking it out of the plastic. Instead it ends up in landfill, might get recycled or thrown at random phone company trucks that drop them off. Sadly I don’t see them ever going opt-in, since like most things in the print industry, they charge due to bloated “circulation” numbers and I estimate the number of people who would actually ask for it at 14, give or take 12. Makes you want to go out and hug a tree and then go here to opt-out of them!

Porn industry tiptoes into 3D video

The excitement around 3D TV at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) did not appear to be influencing companies at the AVN-Adult Entertainment Expo taking place at the same time, despite the fact that the adult industry is often a first mover in new video technologies.

Electronics giants such as Sony and Samsung unveiled a range of new products for 3D home entertainment at CES, including ultra-thin-screen HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players, in high hopes that consumers will snap them up this year.

The adult industry is taking a more cautious approach.

Some adult filmmakers are dabbling in 3D video, but most are moving slowly because of the higher production costs, the need for 3D glasses, and a belief that not enough people will buy 3D TV systems this year to justify the cost of making 3D movies.

“We’re very excited to do 3D production, but we don’t feel market penetration [of 3D TVs] has hit the level we need it to be in the home,” said Rob Smith, director of operations at Hustler Video Group, in an interview in Las Vegas. “I’m hoping by the fourth quarter of this year it will be at the point where we can justify doing a 3D product,” he said.

brightkite many glitches but – itsReal

What is Brightkite?

Brightkite is the simple way to keep up with friends and places. It lets you see where all your friends are, so you can spend more time with them. You can also discover places in your neighborhood and meet other locals along the way.

What Does APLINK Think?

Brightkite reminds me of the early facebook days and then also Twitter – I could at first see little use for both of the before mentioned social platforms, however today I mock that I spend 36 hours a day in facebook and now manage around 8 twitter accounts.

But unlike facebook & twitter. Brightkite has many – let me call them – glitches but after re-attempting different things it seems like magic brightkite does what it is kinda meant to do. The best thing about brightkite is its ability to connect facebook & twitter to your travels via your smartphone, I have an HTC Hero which is android based and there is a brightkite app – hey and it works !!!

So, what do I think – APLINK can’t help but be on as many social platforms he can find and that make sense. Brightkite seems to make sense for now & with an alexa rank of 12,581 – alot more people than me must seem to think itsReal too.

note: to find me on brightkite my nick is OZAWESUM – that’s one of the glitches I can’t seem to fix. I forgot my APLINK password and can’t seem to generate a reset – so have had to re-register with a new account.

TIP: if you have a business especially a venue, restaurant or bar – register and create your business location – it’s free and yet another signpost to your doorstep courtesy of SOCIAL MEDIA.

To Visit the 2D or 3D La Grasse Matinée Exhibition visit: http://redsphereart.com/en/e25.0-exhibition-la-grasse-matinee.html

La Grasse Matinée – Exhibition of Photography and mixed media – artists exhibition details below.

The 12 works entitled La Grasse Matinée depict an image of a young woman lost to the world in slumber, cherishing her eiderdown illuminated only faintly by the dawn one languid, carefree morning. A soft light plays on her figure, elsewhere only emptiness and faint shadow. She is utterly innocent and passive in her surrender to sleep and dreaming. In this silence, she hears nothing except the beating of her heart. Morning light plays amongst the trees. Through half closed eyes in the irregular intervals of light, she sees music; then hears Debussy playing Claire de Lune, she stirs. She can no longer sleep and slowly recalls a poem by Verlaine from a book read many years ago which begins to appear in her minds-eye.

These mixed media works on canvas create a fusion of impressionist imagery wrapped in semi-transparent musical scores from Debussy, combined with original French text from the poems of Verlaine; the subtle texture of this lucent blanket offers an intriguing misty depth to the images.

题为La Grasse Matinée 12张 作品描述一个少妇遗失在微睡的世界,在一个疲倦,无忧无虑与自在的早晨,紧握着她那黎明微微照耀的鸭绒被。轻柔的光芒照在她的身上,仅留下了空虚和微弱的 阴影,减少了作品内的空间层次感。作家以纯朴的手法有效地展现妇人休眠的主题。在无辜和被动下,她完全投入在她的睡梦中。在这沈默中,她只听见自己的心跳 声。早晨的轻声唤醒了树林。通过半闭的眼光,她仿佛看见了音乐,听见Debussy演奏Claire de Lune。她完全无法入眠,脑海里反复地回想起Verlaine,眼眶浮现他曾在书中写的一句诗。

这些帆布的媒体合画包含了Debussy乐谱创造, 结合与Verlaine的法文原诗;透亮毯子的微妙纹理展露出富有深度的迷人图像。

AJE

AJE’s process is a combination of photography and painting.

First creating the photograph then printing it onto a surface by use of either high quality digital printing and/or photographic emulsion. AJE spends the majority of his time working with oil and acrylic paints, silk screens and graphite to bring out the desired expression in his works. To experience the works in person enables one to appreciate the layers and subtlety created with the fusion of these different mediums. The final work is neither a photograph, nor is it a painting but something directly in between with the qualities of both.

AJE has lived, worked and exhibited his work in the UK, France and Australia and he now resides in Singapore.
