VPhase plc, (AIM:VPHA), a leading developer of energy saving products for residential and commercial properties, is pleased to announce that its subsidiary VPhase Smart Energy Limited has been awarded Carbon Emission Reduction Target ("CERT") credits for its VPhase VX1 product.
In this blog when I mention social media I will be referring to Twitter, rather than writing a blog referring to the social media networks as a whole. I am not one to believe in the "one size fits all" approach. Of course there are many more social media outlets on the web and I will cover these in my future blogs.
What a great example of using social media - @kingofshaves on Twitter shows how using a movie hit like The King's Speech can take a small business and make the heads turn of large corporations!
VPhase plc, regional winners and national finalists of the Shell Springboard programme for its smart eco device, which cuts electricity bills by around 10%, lowers energy use and reduces carbon emissions, will be holding a Voltage Optimisation seminar at Ecobuild on Thursday 3rd March 2011 between 15:15 – 15:45
I have just completed a survey from Google AdSense here http://bit.ly/eor3Jv . The purpose of the survey was for Google AdSense to learn more about how their users are creating and sharing content online. For example, sending a social update to our friends on Facebook or blogging about a hobby on Blogger. This would qualify as online content creation and sharing.
I would like to wish everyone a happy new year 2011 - Just had a thought, the date now is 1/1/11, I wonder how long before this happens again? :)
I look forward to 2011 and what it has to offer! Good or bad I am sure it will be much as a learning curve as every year is! For all of us!
