Tip of the day: How effective is your tweet?

searchThere are a lot of tools out there that help you measure how effective a tweet is doing. Did you know Twitter added a nice analytic package for your tweets? Last year Twitter launched a new page where you can measure the effectiveness and engagement of your tweets. Here I present two options that can help you figure out how well your tweets are doing in your network.

The first option is the new Twitter activity page on the Twitter site itself. Just follow this link (https://analytics.twitter.com) to view your engagement levels. You can gauge three different categories: Tweets, Followers, and Twitter Cards. Here are some screen shots on what you can expect:

Google Chrome Tip – Bookmarking multiple windows

google-chrome-bookmarkI have a lot of bookmarks and many times when I am working on a project or doing some of my own personal things I like to have a “workbench” of tabs open in Google Chrome. I use this both at work and at home. For instance, at work I have many IBM Connections communities I would like to read the news from or contribute to so I have a folder of bookmarks for all the common Communities I contribute to. I also have a folder for other administrative work like travel, expenses, my opportunities, and my field sales reports. This feature really helps me organize my thoughts when working on the particular task by automating the opening of these tabs.

In this video I show how you can bookmark all of your open tabs and then open all of those tabs with a single click.

Can you tell I am on vacation with three blog posts in less than 24 hours?

Anyway, this problem has gone on for about a week for me and since I am on vacation I decided to solve it. After scouring the net and mostly the Apple support site I got some clues about what the problem might be. About a week ago I upgraded my Flash player and I also ran into some KeyChain problems because of my password change. The solution for me was to Block all sites from storing information on this computer in the Flash Player settings:

Then I deleted all certificates related to Apple in my Keychain panel.

I am going to play around and turn the Flash Player setting back on because I just can’t believe this is part of the problem. It does make sense that my certificates got corrupted during the password change.
