  • Most blogs are not kept up-to-date, are not widely read, and are occasionally read internally.
  • Many services have email alerts, others have subscribe options. However, these alerts tend to clog up in-boxes, consider having them sent to an email account created specifically for the purpose. RSS feeds are a better option, and increasingly people are relying just on Twitter.
  • Bloglines is a free online service, Google reader is often best combined with an iGoogle account.
  • Social network and game, based on mobile phones, people ‘check-in’ as they travel around. Raising concerns about security, since it proves you are away from home.
  • There are other phone, for example Samsung, Nokia, and the Android phones. But the busy exec is more likely to go for one of these two.
