Yet Another Facebook Story: Friends of AdPulp

I was slow to take to Facebook. In fact, I kind of hated it. I even took down my account for about six months last year. But I eventually came back (FB knew I would) and now I’m getting into the swing of things. I came back for the simple reason that lots of real […]

Watching TV With “Friends” Around The Nation – Is There Anything The Web Can’t Do?

While a social media advance can’t hold a candle to the real news on this day in American history, Saul Hansell of The New York Times does note the significance of today’s CNN/Facebook mashup.
