10 Things I learned by deactivating my Facebook

On July 2, 2014, in Facebook, by Zaid Rasid

I will try my best to not sound cynical in this post considering I went through a mid-life Facebook crisis but to keep a long story short, I reached a point in my feed that the political, social and cultural stories that were consuming my thoughts were enough to call it quits. For someone like […]


How Justin Bieber Killed My Facebook

On June 10, 2014, in Facebook, by Zaid Rasid

I’m a fan of Justin Bieber. I’m also a fan of Rob Ford. Yes I admit it.  Being a fan of these two individuals can result in a lot of ire from a majority of people who aren’t necessarily receptive to the behaviors of either Justin or Rob. And rightfully so. I mean we’re all […]

Do Brands Belong on Facebook?

On March 22, 2013, in Facebook, by Zaid Rasid

Advertisers. Inevetible. And with Facebook in particular, you may have noticed a recent trend in your Newsfeed: an influx of advertising. The internet has long been a symoblization of an ad free world where a corporate presence almost felt taboo. The origins of the internet included the doctrine of a universal resource of information, accessible and available to anyone.

“There are two kinds of people on social networks: those who want more followers and those who are lying. Let’s be honest; gaining more followers is the acid test of social media because it shows whether you are interesting, intelligent, and cool.” – Guy Kawasaki

What has Google+ become?

On September 19, 2011, in Facebook, Social Media, Twitter, Uncategorized, by Zaid Rasid

More and more Google+ is turning into a smorgasbord of some sort of social media contraption. For many avid users of the platform, it has become a mecca and a safe haven from the likes of Facebook and Twitter. To the chagrin of the hardcore Google+ users, this platform is suppose to go head to head with Facebook, but it is failing in that quest. Let’s face it, the point of the launch of Google+ is to become the prevailing social media platform. To think otherwise is to believe that Google would release a platform to tailor to only a few interested members. And so far, that is what it has become.

In a recent blog atricle, Paul Tassi wrote a post called A Eulogy for Google Plus, in which the author predicts that the new social media platform faces some serious challenges. To put it lightly, it was faced with huge amounts of criticism and attack. And of course, some hardcore Google+ users were quick to call the author names, accuse him of creating an article for link bait and other frivolous accusations.


What’s the fuss about Google+

On July 6, 2011, in Facebook, New Media, Social Media, by Zaid Rasid

You may have heard that Google is about to launch their own version of a social networking platform, similar to that of Facebook. I haven’t been invited to their small sample of test users and so I haven’t even experienced what it’s like. Even so, I give Google+ maybe a year or so to survive.


Facebook’s role in the Vancouver riot of 2011

On June 22, 2011, in Facebook, by Zaid Rasid

I try my best to refrain from discussing topics unrelated to social media, like hockey and riots. But because I’m a huge Vancouver Canucks fan, it would be difficult for me to not share my thoughts on what happened at the end of the Stanley Cup finals. I would have never considered that social media and rioting could be so connected.
