  • Facebook URLs – Good for personal branding: Which one sounds better? http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/profile.php?id=123456&ref=profile (dummy id) or http://www.facebook.com/kanupriyasindhu? Clearly 2nd one, isn’t it? Read More…

    I liked the Sony rebranding itself as a change. The shows on the air are quite different and most of the people can relate to it.

    Saw the change in logo of Videocon. Its time that they start marketing themselves or people will think that it does not exist anymore..
