Long distance will never be hard again, only awkward.
I was recently asked which sites are up and coming. I forgot to discuss the category of ‘sharing your clickstream’ to the bunch that are gaining traction.
Sites like Dscover.me, Voyurl.com and Sitesimon.com allow you to share your browsing history with anyone and are becoming increasingly trendy.
The idea is to share articles and places you navigate online as you surf the web and we all know the power of a personal referral.
While you have the capability to decide what you do and don’t want shared, I’m still not comfortable with it. Sure I think it could be cool to see what my friends are reading and buying but personally, this is way too intrusive for me. I shamelessly think I would like to access their data but not let them access mine. It’s like downloading to uploading.
Maybe it's just that I feel like I’m holding on to every last bit of digital privacy I can get these days.
What are your thoughts?

In the wake of natural disasters people are really turning towards social media. We discussed this last night on CNN but was cut due to the breaking news. So, I thought I would post here.
Two particular Facebook pages have gained a lot of attention over the past few days. The first is Pictures and Documents found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes. The page created does exactly that – it serves as a central place for people to turn things in that may have showed up in their yard and tries to connect them with their owners. In many cases the photos and documents being posted on the page have traveled miles. The site has doubled users daily and is at nearly 75k likes. And at last count over 600 items have been posted.
It's also remarkable the items that are being turned in.
· Warranty deeds from 1974
· A license
· Wedding and holiday photos
· Unopened mail that traveled miles to another persons lawn
· A lot of old photos which are just priceless – those are the little things that can’t be replaced.
Hit the like button, but be careful what you post.
If you have found something and want to post it try to block out any personal information that you have to think twice about: social security numbers, addresses– we don’t want this to be a haven for identity theft.
I've seen a lot of people posting personal phone numbers and addresses to connect too - I know their intentions are in the right place but if you've made a connection with someone I recommend getting in touch digitally (email) not directly on the page.
Another Facebook page is Toomers for Tuscaloosa which is up to 70k likes – Auburn and Alabama have put the rivalry aside and they are in full force organizing volunteer efforts, letting people know where assistance is needed and where they can drop of materials, clothes and even donations.
They are working to create a website from this page as well.
