I’m Scott Kleinberg, the Social Mediaologist. Welcome to my website.

My vision for scottkleinberg.com was for it to be an extension of me: Quirky, colorful, obsessed with the 80s and fun. I didn’t want the usual. I wanted a website that keeps changing. Tweets, animated gifs and all that totally awesome stuff. I hope you like it, and I thank you for visiting.

Vine: 6 seconds with the Apple Watch

I could do this forever – so much cool stuff to fit into a few seconds. I’ll do a bigger review soon, but my favorite thing is that it’s like a summary of the most important things I do. But the secret is to treat the phone and watch completely differently.

My Apple Watch Flipboard Magazine

View my Flipboard Magazine. I may not have my Apple Watch yet, but my Apple Watch Flipboard magazine is one of the most popular in the world. I’m dying a little inside each time I see “processing order” in my order status, so I think this Flipboard magazine is the only thing keeping me sane […]

The great Apple Watch letdown of 2015

I’ve been using Apple products since 1984, when I was in 7th grade. The guy who ran the computer lab let me come in every morning to help load the Apple Macintoshes with the Bank Street Writer and Oregon Trail. Those are fond memories, although 7th grade ended up really sucking overall. But I digress. […]

Beautiful World Trade Center elevator ride

Amazing from the New York Times: “From the moment the doors close until they reopen 47 seconds later on the 102nd floor, a seemingly three-dimensional time-lapse panorama will unfold on three walls of the elevator cabs, as if one were witnessing 515 years of history unfolding at the tip of Manhattan Island.”

Twitter direct messages: Change is good

Twitter direct messages just got more useful and powerful. The platform made a big change today to the core features better known as DMs. Now you can opt in to receive direct — or private — messages from anyone, even if you don’t follow that person or if they don’t follow you. Before this, a […]

Periscope. Meerkat. Livestreaming is back

Livestreaming has been a huge topic of conversation in our newsroom this week. First, Meerkat. Now, Periscope. And as quickly as we started a plan for Meerkat, now we’ve replaced it with Periscope because it’s better and seems to have so much more potential being owned by Twitter. And that’s hard because for the quick […]

Update 03.15.15: after I posted this yesterday, I found out the craziest small world fact about Brenda K. Starr: Turns out, my sister knows her and worked with her. She lives in the town where I grew up and people who still live there know her and her daughter – and they say see also […]

The problem with that beautiful gold MacBook

Leave it to Apple to overshadow itself at an event. For weeks leading up to the Apple Watch unveiling, I pointed out the pitfalls of Apple announcing anything else that day other than the watch. When you want all eyes to be on your biggest innovation in 5 years, you don’t want to introduce any […]
