More Olympics and Social Media!

by Martina Wormuth

I love the Olympics, and this year is no exception. I’ve been watching and reading everything that I can about it. And there is certainly a lot of it out there. Social media has changed the face of Olympic coverage. I talked about this somewhat on Friday, when I talked about the Opening Ceremonies leak […]

Hot Topics for Tech and Social Media

by Martina Wormuth

It’s one of those icky days outside today. It was thundering when I woke up this morning, and its just gloomy and gross outside. I’m not complaining though; I don’t really have anywhere to be, and the rural area I live in really needs rain. Anyway, today, we’re going to look at a storm of […]

Fast Food and Social Media

by Martina Wormuth

I grew up in one of those households that loved fast food. We would always eat out, and it was a treat to go to Wendy’s or McDonald’s after grocery shopping or whatever. Now, this isn’t always a good thing; I developed some really poor eating habits because of it, but still, fast food was […]

Social Media and Presidential Elections

by Martina Wormuth

This will be the 3rd presidential election that I will be eligible to vote in. First off, that didn’t occur to me until I started to figure it out in my head.  Secondly, that means I’ve run through my 20′s quicker than I realized, and that’s kind of a weird thing to think about. Anyway! […]

Social Gaming Network on the Horizon

by Martina Wormuth

I’m a gamer. I love playing video games, social games, board games, card games, even tabletop RPG’s. If I can play it, I will play it. And I’ve played almost everything. I’m not a fan of first person shooters (If you don’t know games, think of Halo and Gears of War, think of that kind […]

Does Social Media Prevent Socializing?

by Martina Wormuth

I have a confession to make: I’m socially awkward. Not in the normal way either. I have a disorder known as social anxiety, so when I get in social situations, I freeze up. I freak out, I stutter and stammer. If I’m around people too much, I get nervous and kinda sick to my stomach. […]

What Does “Social Media” Mean Now?

by Martina Wormuth

Social media. The first time that we really heard the term was when Facebook came out in 2004. Before that, it had been thrown around. But it wasn’t a huge phenomenon until about the last 5 years. I saw an article on Social Times the other day containing this infographic. And I was fascinated by […]

Social Media, Social Searching

by Martina Wormuth

I love Google. I joke with my friend about having excellent skills in “Google-Fu.” I’m one of those freaks that can find almost anything you’re looking for on Google in a few minutes. And you know what? I’m proud of it. And I’ll admit, I swear by Google. I don’t like using any other search […]

Wills – Now Including Social Media!

by Martina Wormuth

So today I was going through my newsfeeds, as I usually do every morning, and something caught my eye. This article, posted by the Daily News (which I remember getting at my house growing up), talks about how the government is now advising that social media accounts are included in your will. I was shocked […]

Social Media for Good!

by Martina Wormuth

People say that social media is rotting our kids’ brains, and I will agree with that to a point; a lot of the junk that I see the teens I work with dealing with is just that, junk. But social media can really be used for really good things. As I’ve shared on here before, […]
