Facebook Messenger for Your Desktop

The longer Facebook is a part of all our lives, the more messages I receive through the Facebook Messenger app. One recent afternoon, I was communicating with 4 people all at the same time on my mobile and felt like I had whiplash. You may not know this but there’s a better way to manage these messages. […]

How to Delete a Facebook Group

Facebook groups are a great way to connect with people like family, teammates, industry professionals, or coworkers. Groups are more collaborative than Pages, as everyone can have a say, and communications in groups are balanced in delivery versus just coming from the administrator. There are more than 600 million groups in use and you may have started […]

My Adventures As A High School Teacher

How I Became a Teacher As an independent consultant, my job is to learn the tools and then educate others. I’ve been co-teaching a class at Sonoma State University for several years, I teach workshops at Santa Rosa Junior College, and have delivered many other day-long classes at a variety of institutions and private organizations […]

I’m Still Here

Have you heard the news? I’m now teaching two classes of Business Principles at Windsor High School. The regular teacher wanted to work part time so I became his partner. The class focuses on personal finance, business management, some social media skills, as well as college and career readiness. These are all areas I feel […]

How to Respond to Yelp Reviews

I recognize the needs of my clients when I’m consistently asked the same question. Recently I was asked how to respond to Yelp reviews by several different clients within just a few days. It hadn’t occurred to me that this information wasn’t easy to find so I decided to write a blog to make sure I […]

How to Remove Facebook Business Manager

I have a client that was upset about using the Business Manager tool on Facebook. Her business partner had turned it on but they later found that they couldn’t use Facebook apps or get back to the personal area without a lot of trouble. I discovered this myself when it first came out. As an internet […]

The Social Media Illusion

“You look SO busy!” This is what I hear every time I see someone in person that I haven’t seen for awhile. They’ve been following my business Facebook page or they get my email newsletter and somehow come to the conclusion that I’m swamped. I actually don’t use the word busy and I encourage others to ditch […]

My Computer Mentor Turned 94 Today

My computer mentor turned 94 today. She thinks she’s a “total geek when it comes to this computer stuff” and she’s right. She’s the most important geek in my life – my grama. Grama Marian was the first person I knew with a computer, a Commodore 64. She would tell me that computers were the way […]

How to Change Your Gender on Facebook

In case you haven’t noticed, there is a gender revolution happening in our culture. We’ve moved beyond binary when identifying our genders (male or female). Facebook responded and now has 58 different gender options for those that don’t fit the traditional system. But they didn’t tell anyone that you can change your gender on Facebook! […]

The Social Media Fixer

I spend a lot of my time in social media teaching and consulting. I’m really good at marketing myself and my skills (I should be since I teach others to do it) but there’s one service I’ve never really advertised. My office mate called me, “The Fixer.” He’s right. I fix a tremendous amount of social […]
