Location Services

I have never been a huge fan of social apps, like Gowalla, that revolve around check ins, mainly because I’m paranoid about people knowing when I’m not home.

Too often the affiliate industry relies on buzzwords like engage, quality content, or optimization to recruit new affiliates. I find them boring, annoying, and often extremely misleading.  Each industry has their own canned claims and promises but the smart affiliates will recognize when they’re being suckered with repackaged content and boilerplate strategy.
