How to Prepare Yourself for a Career in Social Media

Finding people to fill vacancies in Social Media jobs is never easy. To make things worse, you get some random people that send applications for Social Media jobs thinking that being a Social Media marketer is as the same thing as being a stores clerk. They think that, knowing how to chat with friends on Facebook, or liking and sharing pictures of funny cats on Facebook are the two most wanted qualifications to become a Social Media marketer. Here is a conversation which happened today, between one such interviewee and the interviewer panel (including me).

Cheapest Android Phones in Sri Lanka – 2013 Updated Version

About year and half ago, I wrote a blog post about cheapest Android smartphones in Sri Lankan market at that time. I received a good response for that post, and still it is one of the most popular posts on my blog. I noticed, the models and prices I’ve listed in that post were bit outdated as of now, so I decided to put together another list of cheapest Android phone models in Sri Lankan market.

Last time I took “Priced below Rs.35,000” as the sole criteria for being “cheap”. This time too, I will keep that criteria but will add another qualifier this time. The new qualifying criteria is, only the Android models with Android 4.0+ (ICS or higher) will be included in this list. The reason is, there are whole lot of cheap Android phones circulating in the market, under Rs.15,000/- but most of them are with older versions of Android like Gingerbread or Honeycomb.

Education 2.0 – How Sri Lankan Universities Can Best Use Technology in Education

Suranga Connecting From Sydney
Yesterday, I had the opportunity of being the coordinator of what could be the first ever live web-based lecture at the faculty of management, of the Sri Jayawardenepura University (I may be wrong to say this is the first, but you are free to correct me in the comments section). It was a live lecture on the topic Search Engine Marketing, conducted by Suranga Pryashantha, (currently based in Sydney Australia). For about one and half hours, Suranga delivered his lecture over a Webinar connection, and at the end of the session a direct Q&A session was conducted, with students posting their questions at Suranga over a Facebook group and Suranga responding to the questions directly on the webinar.
