    Good Morning Kristi. As always, you did great. Thanks for that Mashable post on the new Timelines, I must have missed that one earlier this week. I’m sharing it with everyone I know who uses Facebook.

    I also loved the one from Dhalia on Press Releases, since I am trying to write one right now, and the last time it wound up being a bust.

    Keep up the great posts.

    Hi Kristi,
    I have seen in your resources mashup as well as in several other blogs that there is a lot about Facebook this moment, Google + v Facebook, new settings, security problems, etc. and I have almost stopped reading about Facebook when everybody pointing in different directions, I get so confused I this moment.
