On July 6-22, immerse yourself in NY_Hearts: LES, a virtual love story you can experience through an app.

Audio books are ‘in’ but imagine a whole new way of storytelling –with an app. An app through which you hear the real sounds and see the real sites of the narrative –as though you’re actually there!  That’s the idea behind the Moveable Feast app.  The app allows you to create and share “multimedia narratives.”  It can be a tour when you’re far off traveling, within which you can include images, videos, and text –all connected to GPS coordinates and a “virtual trail” that others will be able to follow using their iPhone or desktop.

Is social media as reliable as the mainstream media for news? It’s hard to say if news on social media can be trusted, but it is surely an effective complement to mainstream media.

It was a software consultant who first tweeted about the events leading up to Osama Bin Ladin’s capture and death. Sohaib Athar (@ReallyVirtual) tweeted that “extraordinary choppers” were in his area of Pakistan. He didn’t know at the time that it was a U.S. operation to capture Bin Ladin. Because of his tweets, several mainstream media outlets followed up on the story and found that Osama had been captured and was dead. Before long, the entire internet was abuzz with the Osama news gone viral.

Similarly, is the story of  Neda Soltan, an Iranian woman shot in broad daylight during one of the Iranian protests. A video of the travesty surfaced on the Internet, later spreading like wildfire via social media.

The Internet is awash with job offers; all you have to do is check your spam folder –you’ll find a “guru” telling you that he/she will teach you how to earn $1,000-7,000 a week after buying his/her book or CD. That’s a scam– and no matter how tempting the email/video offer looks, do not buy it. You don’t have to pay someone to give you a job; it should be the other way around. Last year, more than 17,000 work-from-home  internet scams and spam  were reported to the Internet Crime Complaint Center, costing victims over $20 million in losses.

Facebook is initiating an advertising exchange that will let advertisers reach their target audience via the Facebook site.

Facebook Exchange will be a new revenue boosting measure for Facebook, one that is sure to parlay investor fears, to some extent; especially after the company’s turbulent Facebook IPO late last month.

Here’s how Facebook Exchange works: suppose you’re browsing a travel site to check flights to Heathrow but you don’t end up purchasing one.  The travel site can drop a cookie into your browser, and now, when you return to Facebook, you will be “retargeted” to see display ads for discounted tickets to London.
