Hey there folks!

I apologize in advance if these types of posts annoy anyone, but I am trying to collect some information for a graduate research project about smartphone usage and figured this would be a great place to ask. Below is a link to a quick 5 minute survey. If you have the time and don't mind providing some of your preferences, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for your help in this!

Hello everyone! 
I am working on my master's degree and could use your help for a Research Methods course I am currently taking. The survey focuses on smartphone usage and choice and has 9 questions (multiple choice, a couple of rankings, and some ratings). The survey shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to complete and I would greatly appreciate your time in taking it. Also, if you would like to share the survey to your own pages, please do! The more responses I get the better the data will be that I am collecting.
Thanks in advance for your time! Your help will be invaluable.

Great article on dealing with Internet trolls. Just another reason to love Google+.
The trouble with trolls (and how to beat them)

Twitter exploded in activity after the tragic suicide of actor and comedian Robin Williams. http://goo.gl/q5fQbd

The vast majority of the commentary was in the form of loving tributes and remembrances of a widely beloved entertainer.

But two days later, William's daughter Zelda said this on Twitter: "I'm sorry. I should've risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye."

Zelda Williams was driven off of Twitter by a troll or trolls using the names PimpStory and MrGoosebuster. The accounts sent her messages and pictures that are too horrible to relate here. She tweeted to her followers: "Please report @PimpStory @MrGoosebuster. I'm shaking. I can't. Please."

This event is the trolling crisis in a nutshell. A vulnerable person. A sociopath or two on social media tormenting that person without consequence, totally beyond the reach of everyone (in fact, the pain caused and the attention grabbed rewarded them). Even millions of well-wishers and supporters can't overcome the pain caused by the heartless trolling of a tiny number of people.

The Telegraph newspaper this week published an article with a headline that proclaimed, "Online Trolls Are Forcing Women "Offline."

Anyone can be hurt by trolls. But some people are especially targeted -- women, youth, members of LGTB community, minorities and those suffering from personal crises.

Trolls silence, shame, harass, horrify and stress people, sometimes to a life-threatening degree.

Can anything be done about it?

The answer is yes. Here's how:

Greetings everyone!

I am a recent communications graduate and looking to do some networking, in addition to trying to learn the craft of Public Relations. I realize I am getting a bit of a late start (I did 20 years in the Navy before finishing my Bachelors), but I am looking forward to pouring through the posts here and meeting other professionals in the field whom I can learn from.

In any case, I just wanted to say hello!
