How not to use #Hashtags

So the use of #hashtags are growing out of control. It’s so bad even Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake made a great video talking in hashtags. But it doesn’t get as bad as this tweet from a John Ferrugia below. Let’s clean up social media for all of us. Don’t flood the space.

Why do people believe experts on tv or radio?

I was headed to the airport earlier and KFBK in Sacramento brought on an expert to talk about safety for those big Christmas presents you bought. They didn’t want you to put those big empty tv boxes outside in the garbage because it would be an invitation for thieves. But then she said one thing…

Matt Vasgersian is classless on MLB Network

I just want to say that Matt Vasgersian is a classless reporter/anchor on the MLB Network. Tonight Brad Hawpe was beaned on a pick-off throw in the neck below the helmet. He had to be taken off on a cart with his neck immobilized. It is a serious situation. Vasgersian was making jokes about one…

Clay Shirky wrote an interesting post about the changing media landscape. One interesting quote I found in the story is: Round and round this goes, with the people committed to saving newspapers demanding to know “If the old model is broken, what will work in its place?” To which the answer is: Nothing.
