There is a big impact from social networking sites and media on all types of business. The majority of effects are good ones, because they have helped plenty of companies gain places in the market place. I don't think these technologies are a "fad" and I also think they have a substantive and meaningful change on business in the future. I read a interesting article about the future world of social networking and business. You can read this article here. I think we all can agree with the effects of some effects of social networking, just look at the effect wether negative/positive on the business you work for.

The problem google is having is called click fraud. This is when a person is clicking on his/her own site to gain profit from google. In addition to this there is a process that google is using is called category filtering. This is how someone is able to block ads from certain categories from appearing on their site. The categories are:cosmetic procedures and surgery, dating, drugs and supplements, fast earning schemes, politics, religion, ring tones and downloads, sexual and reproductive health, sexually suggestive pictures and texts, video games, and weight loss ads. They don't want people to get paid by clicking on their own sites. This is not fair to google and it is stealing from their company. I think this is a very unethical. If google gives you the opportunity for you to make money by being creative and get people to visit and join your site. The least people could do is be honest. I think google AdSense should make the joining process longer and do some investigation before adding, and that would cut down on the unethical issues. I like the idea of having google AdSense associated with my blog and honestly couldn't see myself trying to take advantage of a could opportunity or be label has a person who is guilty of "click fraud".

Whole-House Surge Protection

It's important to protect all your electronic devices, not just computers, from surges. Printers. televisions, appliances and computer peripherals all require protection. However, it can be inconvenient to use individual surge protectors on all devices that need protection. One solution is to install a whole-house surge protector as shown in this photo. The device is installed by an electrician and is attached to your circuit breaker panel. Whole-house surge protectors function like other surge protection devices, but they protect all electrical devices in the house at once. The typical cost of $200 to $300 (installed) is generally less than buying individual surge protectors for every electrical device in your home.
