In the guest chair:
Titania Jordan, the SpokesMom and Brand Strategist for KidsLink joined us in the studio today to talk about protecting your child’s digital legacy. KidsLink is a secure app where Mom’s can share info about their kids with their closest friends. While definitely a social media app, KidsLink encourages parents to use the tool to create “micro-networks” of your real friends and family, with whom you actually want to share personal information. She says the app is different in that you own your own data and while it is cloud based, she says that the company has created a higher level of security than what we are seeing on other social networks.
Titania also talked about the mission of the company being “to make Moms lives easier” and explained that whatever direction the company takes as it launches and grows this will be the driving force.
In the headlines:
- It’s official the new Cobb County Braves stadium has a name – or should I say a sponsor.
- UPS is adding up to 95,000 holiday jobs this year. (Up from 55K last year).
- Apple made a minor misstep with it’s latest release that some are calling an epic blunder. We talk about what they did and how bad it really is or isn’t. (i.e. if a tree falls in the woods and a few bears are mildly irritated, it is not an epic blunder)
- An Atlanta landmark is closing this Saturday. Zesto on Ponce is saying goodbye after 60 years. But you still have a couple days left to go get an ice cream.
- And the EPA is granting a 45 day extension for the public to weigh in on it’s new power pollution reduction plan.
