fine. This Social Media Cheat Sheet goes over the pros and cons of using some of the major social networks. Download the pdf here.
Smashing Magazine is one of my favorite blogs for design news and opinions. It’s where you go if you are a font geek or want to see what’s happening in the online design world. They recently posted a
really cool article reviewing some non-profit web sites from a design and usability point of view. Even a few sites like the Red Nose Day Campaign or the WWF, which have some of the best designs around got taken to task for a few design errors.

AddtoAny reports twice as many shares to Facebook over E-mail
This is some interesting info that popped across my Google Reader. The abundance and ease of use of “share tools” mean that social networks are rivaling email as content sharing platforms. Interestingly, lags.
pieces of content were shared on Facebook per week during February, according to data released by the company. This is up big from 2 billion per week only five months ago in September 2009.
A study released by content-sharing widget AddToAny indicates Facebook is sharing twice as much content as email currently. However, a separate study by rival ShareThis showed Facebook still a little behind email, with about 30% less content being shared. Taken together, Facebook is just as powerful a content-sharing platform as email. (Twitter is well behind both, but rising.)
