social network workout plan 1 Social Network Workout Plan

Patrick Moberg came up with a workout plan to help himself stay healthy while he indulges himself at some very popular social networking sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Google reader, Flickr, and Digg. Here’s his plan:

THE PROBLEM
I’ve recently found myself checking the following websites an unhealthy amount.

THE IDEA
Every time you open a new tab to check out one of the following websites, stop. Get up from your computer and do the exercise associated with the site you were going to visit. After you complete the exercise, reward yourself by going to the website.

IN ESSENCE
Burn some fat, not yo’ brain.

Add a treadmill, or a few walks around the block, to this plan and you’ll be a lot healthier. Here’s a challenge, only visit one of these sites if you can complete the exercise for each one before visiting the site again. Don’t forget to eat your protein to build muscle not lose it.

facebook twitter Twitter Rejects Takeover Offer From Facebook

Social networking site, twitter.com rejected a $500 million takeover offer from another social networking giant Facebook.com yesterday. The offer was $100 million in cash and the rest in stock. According to Kara Swisher, Twitter rejected the offer because:

"-Facebook’s real valuation made the amount to only $150 million

-Twitter’s investors wanted cash

-Twitter has a secret plan to be announced next year for revenue"

The real question is: What does twitter have in store? Sure, Facebook may have inflated their numbers a little, but hey, times are tough and $500 million is still half a billion!

facebook logo Facebook Announces Birthday Alert Service   Renders Similar Third Party Services Obsolete

Facebook added another useful feature for users, the ability to receive a weekly email alerting to upcoming birthdays of friends and loved ones. This is good news for those of us who habitually forget birthdays. This is bad news for the score of Facebook apps that do the same thing. Birthday Alert alone has over 180,000 active monthly users. With one brush of the digital pen, Facebook has rendered them obsolete.
