Living a connected life

Posted by & filed under Life360.

When I’m asked how I got “involved in social media” I have to think back to January 2005, when I had a chance to help podcast the world’s first podcasted conference. I was a manager for a newsroom at the time and taught at the Missouri School of Journalism. It was the first time I… Read more »

Widening your circles

Posted by & filed under Life360.

I’m currently on a business trip in Boston, and I’ve been using Life360 to help me stay connected to with associates. Life360 is primarily about keeping families connected, but now you can create other circles, either long-term or temporary.

My daughter’s favorite TV show is the Amazing Race. She loves how the contestants go to faraway places to compete in local challenges in an attempt to win a million dollars. She would love to be on the show one day and already has one of her best friends lined up to partner up with… Read more »

When Life Gives You Lemons, Hit the Panic Button

Posted by & filed under Life360.

As a couple with no family in town, and two kids too young to have their own devices, my husband and I use the Life360 app as more of a private communication app. Our circle is very small. Small enough that one might call us online recluses. Honestly we kind of like it that way,… Read more »

There’s a little known thing in Atlanta called traffic. I’m not sure, but Atlanta may or may not be ranked in the Top 10 Cities of Worst Traffic Ever. Until recently my office was one mile away from home and now it’s just down a flight of stairs at home. When I’m stuck in traffic… Read more »

Cell phones and young teens

Posted by & filed under Life360.

My sons, now in their twenties, didn’t care what kind of phone they had in their early teen years. Smartphones weren’t the norm, and they weren’t big on texting. A standard flip phone fit their phone needs perfectly. It’s different now with my daughters, who are 13 and 15. Smartphones are pretty much standard issue… Read more »
