What printer model do you use? Clickinks asked, and our customers answered. There are a lot of new and old Epson Stylus inkjet
printers out there, as well as numerous HP

I admit it, I am a social media enthusiast. I began using Twitter
even before main stream media, I use it both personally and professionally, and I honestly did a happy dance the day Foursquare
opened up in my hometown.
Are we going too far? Last night as I was sitting home alone I saw a tweet from @PleaseRobMe
. They called out my username and said I was not home. Talk about scare tactics. I try to be smart online, do not think the high tech burglars could find my home address to print, do not post anything overly personal and only friend those I know and trust, but are our beloved Foursquare and Twitter postings putting me at risk?
On their website
they even provide search functionality allowing potential criminals to put a location in and hit go for a list of recent empty homes, including mine, that potential criminals could print
Many of us location-sharing social media enthusiasts get so caught up in the novelty and bonuses that we ignore the possible reactions. There have been cases of Twitter burglaries (Israel Hyman) and Facebook burglaries
in the past, now PleaseRobMe alleges that they are making potential targets aware.
Do you think PleaseRobMe is providing a public service by making targets aware? Or is it set up to assist would be criminals further their endeavours?
As illustrated in the graph above, newspaper ad sales (a.k.a. revenue) have dropped at an accelerating rate since April, 2006. The Newspaper Association of America reported that print ad sales fell by a historic 29.7% to $5.9 billion in the first period of 2009.
What will the future of newspapers look like in 2010? With the wide use of the internet, we can find news we are most interested in, and even print
our own Sunday coupons.
While on Social networking sites like Facebook
you probably read updates shared by friends in the same town or with the same interests, as well straight from news sources such as Associated Press, Wall Street Journal or your hometown news channel. Many are now getting news immediately and at demand with no charge. Facebook
also allows users to share news they are reading with friends, and start a discussion. Users are increasingly heading to Facebook
to get their news and entertainment in one place. Facebook
has an extensive user base, and many social networking users claim news as a primary reason for Facebook and Twitter use. As seen in the graph above, Experian Hitwise conducted a study finding 3.52% of the upstream visits to News and Media websites came directly from Facebook
last week. Compared to 1.39% from Google News and a decline in printed newspapers, Facebook
looks to be the most popular news source. Facebook
has a huge lead in that everybody is already there, and they're spending more and more time there checking their live feed, playing games, sharing photos and posting status updates. If news is right in your live feed, you are going to see news articles there frequently without having to search for it. Have you subscribed to your favorite news source yet?
Many U.S. companies have pledged Six-figure sums to aid Haiti relief in the last week. According to a frequently updated list by the Chamber of Commerce
, among the larger contributors are: Microsoft, which has donated $1.25 million, and Pepsi, which is pledging $1 million.
Other contributors include Crocs, which is donating thousands of pairs of shoes, and Nestle, which has donated $1m in bottled water.
Leading printer brands are also adding to Haiti relief. According to a 15 January press release by Hewlett Packard
, the household name has contributed $500,000 to the American Red Cross International Response Fund.
HP will also match $250,000 in contributions from its employees, coming to a possible $750,000.
Group has also pledged $220,000 to aid victims of the earthquake, which struck Haiti last week.
Speaking in the Canon Press Release, President and Chief Executive Officer at Canon USA Joe Adachi said: "A tragedy of this magnitude requires support from the global community and it is our hope that our contribution, along with all of the aid coming in from around the world, will help the people of Haiti begin the rebuilding and healing process."
According to the 17 January report at USAToday.com, US donations are set to exceed the $2b pledged after the Asian tsunami two years ago.
Notable pledges outside the corporate world include: $1m contributed by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Doctors Without Borders, and $500,000 contributed by The New York Yankees.
Sal Fabens of United Way Worldwide says that cash is the most useful pledge, because donations of food etc. may not be able to reach the disaster-struck areas.
