Lately I’ve been doing more web work than graphics. It’s a different pace and gives the other side of my brain a halftime break while I input the HTML. I’ve come across Wibiya.com which is a very resourceful FREE social media toolbar that will help increase your internet traffic to your blog or website.

Once you create your account, you can monitor your traffic from your dashboard with details of location, key searches and application hits.

I think the Wibiya Toolbar is an excellent tool for people who are looking for an easy but more intermediate way to control their web traffic.

Foursquare, the latest social network that's catching on fire!

New York mobile startup Foursquare is one of the hottest Internet companies around.
But what is it? What’s it for? How can you get started?
Foursquare is primarily for letting your friends know where you are and figuring out where they are. Secondarily, it’s for collecting points, prize “badges,” and eventually, coupons, for going about your everyday business.

And it’s becoming popular. Foursquare now has almost 275,000 users in less than a year.

As a business, it hasn’t done much in the way of revenue-generation yet, but some strategies for doing so are coming in to focus. Promotional deals for frequent customers have already started popping up on the service. Co-founder and CEO Dennis Crowley tells us that Foursquare will be experimenting with a wide-range of strategies over the coming months.
