Sorry Mom, I’m Busy With Friends on Facebook

It is safe to assume, like me you spend plenty of time with your computer and gadgets. Indeed interactive and social sites make us feel very good to spare time (this is why they exist). We share and hangout with friends online. Yes we happily do this everyday.

But on the other hand, we’re giving less time to our offline friends and most importantly to family. I am realizing it more than ever, because these days, I’m at my hometown with my family and it encounters to me.

Good thing is that I have learned to manage my time online and offline. What are you waiting of? Go.. Take a nap from this screen. ūüėČ Have a good time! ¬†‚ô• ‚ô• ‚ô•

Twitter Chat: Let’s Talk About #smpk

A lot have been spammed from me about today’s twitter chat.

Yes I’m jumping in to talk every Sunday about social media for businesses in Pakistan. I and my team member will use Twitter Chat.

Today night at 9pm PST we are starting our first chat, topic is Using Facebook for Businesses in Pakistan. I think it would be interesting and fun learning experience.

Follow #smpk (hashtag on twitter for more).

See you.

Be Genuine to Create WOW

A month back I got a t-shirt from blekko (a new search engine). They announced to distribute free t-shirts to their fans around the world. Here is how did they made me WOW by being genuine.

I asked them on Twitter, if you guys are still giving free t-shirts and what about sending one to me in Pakistan. They did not tweeted me back, but took even a step further than replying there. I got an email from their employee with subject T-Shirt? T-Shirt! and asked me to send the postal address and size to get free t-shirt.

Actually what really fantastic is that, they did see my tweet, reached to my blog, then contact page and got my email address and finally send me the email. I was surprised and you know the email subject was so interesting and that explained all. I sent them the info and they have sent me t-shirt. Thank you blekko.

Before this, I didn’t know that you can actually make WOW others by just writing a long detailed micro but genuine email. So be genuine to create WOW. It is not as that difficult, just Be Human!
