Life and Blog

Posted: April 27, 2011 in Me, My Take

Hi all, I have been blogging from july last year….and has enjoyed every moment and every single post..every single comment…and research and the time involved to write this blogs.

Many of the “Esteemed” visitors of my blog spoke that my blogs are good…its was really nice of them…and many liked the humor and wittiness in the blogs. Hmmm I am and always believed that there has to be humor in every aspect of our so called dull “Life”…we are always serious and try act that we don’t like to talk and have fun…If some one is humorous..does it make him less credible. Does being jovial makes any one,not serious about life….I have always been on the other side of firing….but I enjoy every bit of the things I do…and and downs…highs and lows…they are always there…still I enjoy….Living the life to the fullest.

Come on….I know I am boring….enjoy ur life pple….try to take the maximum out of it. Live and let live. And most imp….plz plz do try to respect others and don’t take anyone and and thing for granted.

When I first had the though of blog…I wanted the name to be unique…VEDAMSGYAN….isn’t it. And I never though I enjoy writing and blogging so much. And later this became a habit…or addiction….and now every day due to my work I am not able to write/blog every day. Now I am able to write the blog from mobile…which never ever I thought I would be able to do….Hope the saga continues with the help of my mobile.

And thanking every single Visitor of Vedamsgyan for making this what it is.

Athidi Devo Bhava…

According to Justin Osofsky, Director of Media Partnership at Facebook, “The Page will provide journalists with best practices for integrating the latest Facebook products with their work and connecting with the Facebook audience of more than 500 million people”.

Facebook’s attempt will prop itself up as the reserve for materials needed to make news stories. It is already a helpful resource for online journalists and media organizations. Osofsky wrote in the post that media groups saw their contents becoming more social through working with Facebook, which resulted in their drawing “greater than 300% increase in referral traffic from Facebook.”

To tout itself further, Facebook cited some examples stating how its platform can be used as a reporting tool:

  • NPR uses Facebook to source stories
  • The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof reported from his Facebook Page while on the ground in Cairo
  • Ian Shapira of the Washington Post recently used Facebook as a powerful storytelling advice

In addition, Facebook is  also starting a Facebook Journalism Meetup program.  Where they will be hosting events around the globe to have hands-on workshops on how to use Facebook as a reporting tool, and engage in an open dialogue with the journalism community. The first ever  Meetup will be held on April 27th at Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
