How many of your friends at work, or on Facebook, or on Twitter have asked you.. how do I do this?.. how do you do that? You know the answer and the steps involved, but it’s just too hard to tell them over the phone or via email. Have you thought of creating a screencast (with audio narration) that shows them the exact steps involved, to answer their question? Now you can! With Screenr. Screenr allows you to create screencasts for your followers on Twitter, freely and easily. A screencast (aka video screen capture) is basically a recording of what you see on your PC’s monitor and can include audio narration.

The current explosion in Social Media technologies including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc has made it more easier than ever to connect with friends, groups and customers with similar interests from all around the world.

The Social Media Guide acts as an authoritative guide on embracing and integrating these new technologies, by presenting clear and simple solutions to common social media problems. My aim is to help you connect. You will be able to connect with more people faster and extend your reach deeper into the social web.
