Facebook Down! Now What?

September 23, 2010

When Facebook is Down, Update Your Shwaag.com Profile Instead!

Facebook stopped working earlier today, and sent millions of users rushing to Twitter to seek social connection. When we saw the explosion of Twitter users seeking a substitute way to spend time, we wanted to help out!

Our suggestion? Take a minute to login to your Shwaag account and update the “Things I Love” section on your profile! After all, we take our cue from you! If you tell us you love it, we work on bringing it to you.

Shwaag. Doing our part to help keep your “Status Update” skills in tact while Facebook works on a solution.

Shwaag Meets Meet-Meme at SMAZ

September 13, 2010

SocialMediaAZ.org did it again!  SMAZ 3 on September 9, 2010: a fantastic event filled with high energy people and high quality information.  Shwaag was proud to sponsor the event, where we gave away over 50 Shwaag items to lucky attendees.  One of the best parts of sponsoring an event like SMAZ is getting to meet so many Social Media people in real life.

So when Jonathan Brewer (aka @HouseOfBrew) turned in his red envelope and claimed his T-Shirt Shwaag from ASU Official Bookstores, we were happy to meet him.  But when he came back to chat later, we learned more about his new business Meet-Meme.  We thought it was such a cool business concept, we wanted to share it with all of you!  Check out this short video interview as Shwaag’s own @SOCJacki interviews @HouseOfBrew and @graphyxguy503 about the Super Cool ASU T-shirt he won, as well as this Super Cool Business!
