Survey Thursday – Do You Facebook?

April 23, 2009

* Do you Facebook? If not where do you call (social networking) “home”?

Lately, the old older peeps here at work have been asking me about this strange new thing called “Facebook.” As the resident “Web Expert” I guess I’m the go to guy for these types of questions and boy, have they been a-comin’! First I smirk (at how late they are to the party) and then I proceed to explain to these newbies what it’s all about. How you use it, why people use it, privacy concerns, etc. The look on their face is priceless. It’s the same as that of someone who just watched TV in color for the first time. (at least I think that’s what they looked like. 😛 )

Facebook, at least to me, is where it’s at. There are so many features to control privacy, friends, microblogging/notifications (ala Twitter), and, as evident by the interest from the old older peeps here at work, it’s catching wind. I’ve gotten back in touch from old friends from yesteryear that I haven’t spoken to in years, and all the company and corporate peers are there as well! There are so many more relevant people up in thurr than say a MySpace. If I had to compare the two, I’d tell someone that MySpace is more for kids and ‘tweens and Facebook is more for adults. (No, not that kind of “adult” you perv. 😉 )

There is a downside though. With so many of your professional contacts up in the heezy, you really have to watch what you say and post. It’s not like I have anything to hide really, but posting that drunken party pic from the weekend (I don’t do this – just an example) is probably not something for your boss’ eyes. I’ve heard of stories of those kinda things coming back to haunt employees, and that doesn’t really surprise me.

How did we get to this point? I remember the good ol’ days when these social networking type sites were strictly for us “young” peeps? Let’s turn back the clock a bit shall we… Remember these?

Chat/Talk on UH’s Unix system –> HCU –> Asian Avenue –> IM/Messenger type services (AIM/Windows Live/Yahoo!/Google Talk) –> Friendster –> LinkedIn –> MySpace –> Facebook

Oh YEAH! I bet ya forgot about some of those gems eh? Ha!

And that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what other sites are out there (Yelp, Flickr, TwitterBebo, Hi5, YouTube, and yes, we even have one on AroundHawaii.com).

Is there something after Facebook? Probably, but for now, this is where the party’s at yo. Holla if ya hear me! 😉

Talk to me!
* Do you Yahoo! Facebook?

Survey Thursday – What Is Your Current Ringtone?

February 26, 2009

* On your mobile phone, what do you use as your default ring tone?

(Mahalos to soogs for suggesting this one.)

My default ring tone is set to “Ringtone 10” on my LG Voyager because it’s loud, catchy and unique. Loud because I’m deaf, catchy so I don’t get irritated at it whenever it rings, and unique so I no get confused when somebody else’s phone stay ringing.

The real ringtone I wanna talk about however, is the one I have set when one of my high school boys calls me: “Nuthin’ But a G Thang“! Ohhhhh snap! Makes me laugh every time! HA! (link is NSFW BTW). The sad part is I know all the lyrics by heart. LOL!

Another ringtone that makes me crack up is the one Michael Scott (Steve Carell) uses on his phone on the show The Office: My Humps from the Black Eyed Peas.

So what’s yours? No be shame? Can’t be any worse than those two above! Or can it? Spill the beans! 🙂


Results from last week (Are You a Fan of UH Men’s Basketball?)

  • Yes: 12 (DA WINNAH!)
  • No: 5

Happy Survey Thursday y’all! It’s almost Aloha Friday!!!

Fave Five Friday – Hawaii Television Stations

July 18, 2008

*yawn* Sorry for the late post, but The Dark Knight took a toll on me last night. If you weren’t one of us nerds who saw it last night, I would recommend watching it. Great action, out of this world acting by the late Heath Ledger (the Joker), and decent storyline. Just prepare yourself for 2 and a half hours of movie time. *stretch*

  4. Versus – To get my WEC fix, as well as TapouT (Oceanic Digital Channel 0210 or HGOLF 1216)
  5. VH1 – When I wanna get my reality on like Donkey Kong (Oceanic Digital Channel 0591)

Other situational favorites include A&E: more reality programming including real estate stuffs (0547 or 1547), the Premium On Demand Channels (HBO On Demand, Showtime On Demand, etc.), Food Network: when I’m hungry or for recipe inspiration (0321 or 1321), TBS: Office reruns, My Boys, etc. (0551 or 1551), OC16 (0016 or 1016), MTV: Hills… did I just say that?
