Choosing the right Twitter name is important, just as it is important to choose the right email address. Opting for [email protected] may have seemed like a good idea at the time, but things look a little different when you have to use that address to apply for a job!

It’s the same with Twitter. When you first signed up for an account, you may not have given much thought to just how you were going to use the site. The time may well come when you wish you’d chosen a different username. In fact it is possible to change it — and you needn’t lose any followers along the way!

I don’t know about you, but since the dawn of social networking sites, I’ve managed to put a great deal of information about myself on the web. I have posted status updates on Facebook, tweeted, shared my location on FourSquare, instagrammed photos, pinned art to Pinterest, put my resume on LinkedIn and so much more. To sum up, I’ve generally managed to probably overshare a great deal of my life, and now that information is there and waiting for the next time someone searches my name.

With this tendency towards oversharing having become the norm, a growing number of sites are popping up which allow us to create and protect our overall online presence or “brand.” Vizify is a relatively new (still in public beta) site which allows you to create an interactive and visually appealing infographic landing page. The site connects with the social networks of your choosing in order to summarize and showcase the best of your (appropriate) online presence. Stay with me after the jump to learn more about this exciting new service and what I think about using it.

Facebook has been chastised a lot over the years for their constant stream of small (sometimes unannounced) changes that they’ve made to the site: moving the chat around several times, modifying the profile, changing how news is displayed, and more. These have each been strongly criticized by people who immediately hate changes. Facebook’s Timeline, when it finally rolls out, is going to be a huge change and I know people will hate it just because.

Here’s a quick overview of the new changes, so you’ll hopefully be more prepared when they’re finally implemented. Quick hint: Timeline looks awesome, and odds are, you’ll love it!

Windows users will be familiar with the weekly update schedule Microsoft employs in trying to patch bugs, add a few features and so forth. Lately, Facebook has been been making changes and upgrades at a pace that most web apps—including apps from Google’s stable—have never done before. Even with such a huge infrastructure to handle and a potential community outburst at every turn, they roll out updates anyway.

Few days ago, Facebook upgraded the way the profile page looks. It’s a big deal because in mere seconds visitors will get all that there is to know about you in a nutshell. Follow me after the break for a glimpse at the new Facebook profile page and learn how to enable it.
