Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Lol I'd ask if anything ever materialized, but sadly, I believe I already know the answer -__-
I've requested my data to be downloaded from facebook 3 times now since
my first comment here. Each time, I've gotten the following
email from facebook promptly after I've made the request:
" You recently requested a copy of yourFacebookdata. We'll send you another email with a link to yourdownloadwhen it's ready.

So far I've not gotten a second email response from facebook any of the times that I've made the request. (Yes I've checked my spam filter). I do have a lot of photos and videos on facebook and my only real guess is that my account is larger than what their system is setup to export. Though I receive no error or message to that effect so it is merely a guess.
I've had a similar problem with Google Takeout and have not been able to get a copy of all my Picasa Web Albums downloaded from their service. I've paid for storage space for years, but due to changes with Google+ and the fact that I'm paying for other online storage / backup services now, I want to download a full copy of all my albums from Google, which isn't working out.
Luckily I do have a copy of all of my data that is on Google, however, I don't have it organized in the same fashion that I do on Picasa Web albums, thus the reason I had really wanted to download a copy of it.
Sad to say unless something gets fixed with facebook I won't be able to complete our little experiment here.
...however many are very likely "passively blocking" phone signals due to the commonly used construction materials in commercial buildings.
Instead of "passively blocking", I think you mean "shielding". As in a " Faraday cage". This doesn't hamper signals outside of the structure.
Yes, correct. That is a more accurate term / description of what is happening.
I assumed many connectivity issues were problems due to the phone. When I still had problems after getting the SIII I quickly found out based on some simple speed tests that it was in fact
Sprints network that was slow. I've also had no signal in many areas that clearly showed there was coverage. Sprint continues to promise 4g coverage; but not
yet in my area. Sprint employees have told me 4g will solve all my access woes (slow speeds and lack of coverage) and encourage me to wait it out, however of course I am skeptical.
Should I keep the 2 year contract and hope Sprint pulls through with 4g service or find a new provider? (Important to note; Sprint is significantly cheaper than other providers in my area, but that does me little good if it isn't fast enough to use)"

When I need to look up something about a client or potential client I might have to search in 3 or 4 places trying to find the info. It quite honestly is very overwhelming and time consuming.
I'm familiar with the old style desktop contact managers like Act, I used it for years. However if I set myself up with something like that, I fear that I would have no end of copy-paste work to keep all of my info in Act current; which would likely be no less overwhelming than my current setup.
The only automated solution I have found are products like the advanced social package from salesforce. They have solutions that tie all of this stuff together from gmail to facebook and keep everything in sync. The problem is that at more than $100 a month, their solutions are out of reach for many small businesses, including mine.
What can a small business owner do for a reasonable cost to keep all of their customer data organized and accessible without excessive manual data transfer from one platform to another? I'm not opposed to paying a reasonable fee for a service (up to about $20
