Social Media has become such a huge part of our daily lives right from facebook to twitter to instagram to linkedin to pinterest to youtube, etc. It is very difficult to keep a track of all platforms like whats happening where and who is reading what and what is my social media presence, etc and thats where something like ThoughtBuzz comes handy. ThoughtBuzz is the new age social media management platform.Whether it is an individual user or a brand which wants to keep track of its social media presence, Thoughtbuzz can be used by one and all.
As soon as I got an email confirmation from BlogAdda about reviewing this platform I starting browsing on my mobile itself. I wanted to test it on mobile and it was very smooth and easy to read and scroll through various options without registeration. The first thing what caught my attention was Cross Platform Analytics, of which the screenshot is below.
Being parents of a 4 year old son, Kinnary & I always look for new places where Pratham can have fun, enjoy, play games, do activities, learn new things, etc. Kidzania was always in our minds but we waited for the right age as eligibility here is 4 yrs to 16 yrs. Then came the event by BlogAdda where they invited a blogger parents with their kids to experience and spend time at Kidzania.
We 3 reached on time and were amazed to see the reception area almost converted into an airport. The ticket counters were given the look of check in counters at the airport. Then move forward and we come to security check where we get boarding pass, Kidzania band and a cheque of 50 Kidzos.
BlogAdda is one of the premier portals and platforms for all bloggers. They have been instrumental in doing activities which have become milestones in this sphere and they continue to do the same with different and unique activities, one of which was to shop on Quikr.com for Rs.5000 and blog about the whole experience. It sounds pretty easy right? I thought the same but when I actually tried doing it I realized it wasn’t that easy.
Just to brief about my past experiences with this site, I have not had a good experience earlier with Quikr and my success rate was also zero till I started this activity. I have attempted thrice before both as a seller and buyer but never been able to do anything on the site. Once the buyer turned out to be false and was just doing time pass & then the second time I was the buyer the product got sold before I finalized and thirdly I had to cancel the product because it was not up to what was described in the listing. On the contrary I have used one of the competing sites more successfully and happily.
Anyways since it was BlogAdda who was involved in this activity I had no second thoughts about doing this one. I have had amazing experiences in doing a lot of activities of BlogAdda and they are like my very good friends I really look up to. So initially I casually looked at the site couple of times browsing through trying to look for something good and worth it. Being a gadget lover I always end up looking at mobiles & tablets section on every site and this was no different.
Social Media Week (SMW) is one of the biggest and most followed event round the world for all the people related directly or indirectly to Social Media. It was in Mumbai from 22-26 September, 2014 at Hotel Novotel and I was lucky to attend it thanks to my friends at BlogAdda, who were the blogger outreach partner of the event. I attended a mix of few panel discussions, solo presentations & master-classes which I would like to share in brief –
Master-class by personal branding guru Ms. Tanvi Bhatt of Panache Studios on “BRAND YOU – thought leadership in Personal Branding using Social Media.” She discussed concept of personal branding and how one can various Social Media platforms to develop and grow it. She had some lovely examples to share of people succeeding at this from different parts of life.

Being a seasoned & experienced traveller Ansoo shared some amazing experiences and tools which can enhance ones travel and also shared how we can use Social Media platforms to make the travel more rewarding & memorable.
