After just two weeks of going to AXIOM Health & Fitness for the boot camp workout classes, and sticking to the provided food plan, I am feeling great. It has been a fun and exciting challenge and looking forward to seeing how I feel at the end of the 30 days. (more…)
Thanks to Groupon, I am taking the AXIOM Health & Fitness 30-Day Challenge to get myself in shape, feel healthier and stay energized during my busy schedule! My good friend from Charlotte, @FitnessChamp, would be so proud of how I am dedicated to make the time for myself to stay healthy. (more…)
Brian and I were in Chicago for Labor Day weekend celebrating our 1 year anniversary. We had a lot of activities on the weekend agenda, but one of them didn’t include the surprise we would find in the downtown Chicago parking garage. (more…)
As you may have noticed, Facebook recently redesigned the look of their event pages. The design looks great and ties into their updated scheme, but I think they are missing out on adding some great new functionalities to the pages.
The redesign got me thinking about how it would be valuable to have the capability to send video messages on Facebook, and particularly on the event pages. Currently you can upload videos or record directly on Facebook, but they are missing out on a huge piece with not having real-time options to be social through videos.
My request to Facebook is to add a video messaging feature within the platform, such as Tokbox, so you can send a personal video message to friends in real-time privately, or have the option to bring more life to event pages. Businesses would have an opportunity to bring more social aspects to event pages, giving fans a reason to re-visit the event pages instead of just one time to RSVP.
Tokbox has many features that would be useful on Facebook, such as sending private messages to your friends, record video messages to publicly promote on Facebook, Twitter or embed directly on your blog. It would be great to have private video functionalities in Facebook so you didn’t need to utilize other platforms. I guess privacy is the big question here though with Facebook.
