Sports Updates

UFC 117- was SICK! Anderson Silva!!! He showed me he wasn't just going to give Chael the belt even though he had lost every round & I almost shit my pants when he locked in that triangle w/ less than 2 minutes left. "Cigano" Junior Dos Santos beat the hell out of Roy Nelson & Jon Fitch, Clay Guida, Stefan Struve & Matt Hughes all had fantastic wins. Fitch dominated Thiago Silva. Guida & Struve both had sweet come-from-behind wins. Matt Hughes choked out BJJ practitioner Ricardo Almeida w/ a wrestling choke.

Atlanta Braves- are only up 2 games against the Phillies, but McCann is one of the best hitters in baseball right now & if we can just keep playing solid ball, we'll ride our NL East Championship all the way to the World Series

Dallas Cowboys- play first pre-season football game against Ochocinco, T.O. and the Bengals tonight, but pre-season football sucks so I don't care. Dez is out 4-6 weeks. Spears is out 4-6 weeks. I'm pissed.

due to a computer malfunction I am not even going to attempt to describe, I cannot post my final discussion question. This will hurt my discussion average pretty bad, so in a last ditch effort. I will be answering the question in text, in hopes of some pity points.

Which Web 2.0 tool would be most effective for my business?

I would use all social networking sites. I do not believe we have even began to see how effective social media can be used & I believe websites like Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn can be used to not only help growth of a business, but also to help in the customer service areas that are generally not efficient.
Facebook is a site that could more allow users to become more familiar with what your business is & how it can be used by the consumer. Twitter is one I would use mostly for feedback because it is easier for the user to send you a message & it is just as easy for us to respond to it, either publicly or by direct message.

Discussion Question #4

I believe companies can use social media to help them w/ their PR (Public Relations). It allows CEO's of companies to let users send them comments on their business & it gives them a simple medium to respond. In this article, I found that Loic Le Meur, CEO of Seemic, uses much of his twitter to respond to people's comments on his company.

I know from personal experience, that Matisyahu, a musician, was scheduled to play at a festival on the coast of MS a few months ago. My friend missed his act due to weather & she tweeted him that she was very sad he could not play at the festival that weekend. He sent her a Direct Message asking for her address & some personal info & he mailed her 2 VIP passes to a show in Atlanta to make up for her missing his show.

These are just a few examples of how a company or business can use simple measures to ensure the happiness of their customers.

The listed fights from are:

-Damian Maia (12-2; #5 Middleweight)* vs. Alan Belcher (15-5)
-Mac Danzig (19-8-1) vs. Matt Wiman (12-5)

Alan Belcher is one of my favorite fighters to watch & Danzig vs Wiman & Miller vs Tibau are def not going to disappoint.

This will truly be the highlight of my year.
