Sunday Memories: When we were young

Yes guys & dolls, I know that this has nothing to do with Social Media, Community Management or Comics, but sometimes you just got to remember where you came from to understand where you are going! We took this pic when our long running relationship (8 years +) was just starting...Dude, we both look so young!

In my case, the answer to both is the same: My lovely girlfriend Natalia!

Have a great Sunday everyone! Love!

Twitter, Comic Strips and Ducks

Today Twitter is bursting with some of the craziest quotes ever, thanks to the hashtag #replaceawordinafamousquotewithduck (I myself jumped on the duck wagon with one or two crazy tweets, I admit it) so I thought I was going to honor that fun hashtag in my blog by showing you people some examples of a long, running animated cartoon series about...well, you guessed that one right, ducks!

What the Duck is funny as hell. Fast, energetic and full of humor, this Comic Strip is just what the doctor ordered if Friday looks too distant! So, grab a chair, don't grab a drink because you would spill it all over, and...laugh! It's Duck time!

Poor duck, seeing Death face to...crotch? That must've been a tough one! It's never beautiful to see one of these ducks crying, but then again sometimes life's not that easy!

However, before the coming of Death there is life to struggle with, as this amazingly funny strip (one of my favorites of the animated comic strip) shows us!

And, just in case you were wondering whether or not to heed your friends' advice when they tell you to "duck"...wonder no more! And hey, if you hated homonyms before this one, I'm not about to ease your mind either...Sorry!

Hope you enjoyed this introduction to the crazy world of the What the Duck Comic Strip!

Til next time!

Twitter's just too darn complicated for you? Worry not!

According to @kellyhclay, Twitter has realized that the Facebook user's profile is a lower-tech or less tech-savvy than the Twitter ones, and to get more people onboard the Tweet-like-Crazy train, are studying the possibility of making Twitter much simpler and easy to use, by adding Facebook-like features (i.e.: instant reply without a lot of work behind it).

Here's the story so far:

"This is according to Mashable. A small percentage of Twitter users are now testing a feature that prompts users to @replies, or @mentions, to users directly from the users’ profile pages. Instead of hovering over a tweet to reveal the options to favorite, reply, and retweet, Twitter users may in the future simply just have to type their reply into an input field that’s below the profile information of the other user.

Mashable called this new feature similar to a Facebook message wall, but the difference is that the @reply won’t be featured on the other user’s Twitter stream. It doesn’t appear Twitter will act any differently than it does now, where your @reply tweets actually get featured in your own Twitter stream. The problem is for many new Twitter users, for whom which this new feature is probably designed for, won’t understand this. Hopefully the test of this new feature will either reveal this problem, or surprise us with a nice solution right from the start."

So what do you think of it? Want to give Twitter another try?

Twitter: Love & Hate Infographic

Today's post is a very interesting one! Ever wanted to take a quick glance at what topics Twitter, one of the most powerful Social Media tools, is built around?

Because after all, Twitter is all about conversations, sharing oppinions about what we love...and hate.

And here's where this Infographic by Neoformix , created through the vast scanning over 1,000,000 tweets with the words "love" and "hate" on them. This scanning was done all through 2010, wonder what it would look like in one year?

Avengers Classic Panels: Part 1

This is it! New section! Classic Avengers panels! I will be sharing with you people the panels that did make a difference, whether it be for the art or for the story, now carved into stone!

The last panel of Avengers #1, marked a difference for me and for the Comics Medium. Written by Stan "The Man" Lee, penciled by Jack Kirby, inked by Dick Ayers and lettered by Sam Rosen, this issue is a must for any good comic-book lover.

This is the moment where our heroes decide to band together and form a team, after their combined skills and powers had defeated Loki, the Asgardian god of Mischief. Founding members, as you can see here, were: The Astonishing Ant-Man, the Wondrous Wasp, the Mighty Thor, the Invincible Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk!

The green goliath would leave at the end of the second issue, after a "misunderstanding" involving the Space Phantom, never to come back to the team, but that's another story...

As I said, I will be sharing with you some of the Avengers' most classic moments over the years, and obviously this had to be the first one! Enjoy!
