Outside of boasting of finding a great post, you can use social bookmarking to drive some visitors to your site. You really never know when other people may find your post or discovery equally valuable since the Internet is really the main source of information these days.

Some people may find social bookmarking as an added effort and waste of time. In the early stages it may hold true. But eventually you will discover that efforts will not go to waste. Social bookmarking really aims to spread the word in a more formal matter rather than the usual word of mouth or off-topic link baits people practice these days.

Apparently, Facebook is not just useful for regular people who likes interacting with family and friends, or posting links, photos and status updates but also to law enforcement. In Detroit, a man got arrested for posting pictures. What kind of photos? It is photos of himself holding his guns.

Oliver Weddington had a federal agent investigate him for some federal gun crimes and the agent decided to also look into his Facebook profile. That’s when he found photos of Weddington and his guns. It turns out that he is a convicted felon and he is not allowed to be handling guns. Posing with it was proof worthy enough for jail time.

This just proves how big social media is right now that it is inevitable that law enforcers will also use this as a way of investigating people. This should be a lesson to people that social media is very important. It is easy to access and authorities use it all the time now.

yahgoo.JPGIn an unprecedented move by Yahoo to resurrect the company after the failed negotiations with Microsoft regarding the future of the firm, Yahoo Inc. has signed a deal with its previous rival Google signed an agreement to boost Yahoo’s online ad revenues by allowing them to place ads on Yahoo’s site. This gives social bookmarking a bigger area of cover that was previously owned by either of the two. Combining their resources allows better reach and offers another blow to Microsoft who is desperate for a piece of the Ad market that Google dominates. The move by Microsoft to obtain Yahoo was in hopes of getting a search engine company on the side of the software giant. The failure of negotiations, which was closely followed by the whole world resulted in much discontent with Yahoo and disbelief from Microsoft that even they couldn’t use muscle to get their hands on the search engine company. The power of Microsoft is decreasing day by day and their days as one of the most influential software giant is truly numbered.

Having your work proofread is essential if you want to come up with an error-free paper. This is true whether your are a good writer or not. After all, even the best writers still overlook some of the most basic errors.

The problem with having your work proofread though is that sometimes the editor gets too carried away so that the edited work ends up too different from the original one. While this is not a big deal for some, it is a major frustration for most writers.

If you are one of those who wish to retain control over the flow and feel of your work while it is being proofread, what you can do is to be very selective about the proofreading service you get. Before you get the services of a proofreader, make sure you are able to communicate your exact needs. Proofreaders can do so many things for you aside from checking the grammar of your work, so make sure you know what service they will provide you. Click here for more information on the different services proofreaders provide.

It is also better to hire proofreaders that will allow you to compare your original work and the edited one easily by using tools such as Google Docs so that you can look over the revision history once you get the final product. This is important since you can figure out which changes to keep and not. If you do not know how to do this, you can click here for more information on proofreading services that will allow you to compare original and edited documents.
