It’s winter, the holidays are upon us, and I’ve got the online guide to help you enjoy the season to the fullest. I searched the World Wide Web and came up with my social media picks of the week- Holiday Edition:
‘Tis the Season for Apps:
There are tons of holiday apps to choose from this season.
- iPhone users: Apple has created a commercial to help us choose the best apps for the holidays. The “12 apps of Christmas” include “My Christmas Gift List”, “Holiday Bells”, and “Snow Reports”. View the commercial and information on all of the apps here.
- Android users: Here are 10 free droid apps to get you into the holiday spirit.
- If you don’t have a smart phone, here is a list of 10 Facebook apps you can use.
Connect with Santa Claus:
Mashable compiled a great list of 5 ways you can connect with Santa on the web. They are as follows:
Fa la la la la la… Pandora:
Whether you have Pandora radio on your computer or Pandora mobile (it’s free to join if you don’t have either), you can listen to loads of great, free holiday music. With genre’s that include Classical Christmas, Rockin’ Holidays, and Country Christmas, you’re bound to find something to hum along to while unwrapping presents.
Have a Hulu Holiday:
Watch holiday movies and TV shows online with Hulu. TV shows available on Hulu include 30 Rock’s “Secret Santa” & Modern Family’s “Undeck the Halls.” You can also watch some full movies (such as “A Charlie Brown Christmas“), or clips of your favorite holiday classics. Find one you love? Share videos or clips via Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or Digg.
Dance Your Way Into the Holidays:
Seems like everyone is putting his or her face on a dancing holiday character this year. Want to join in? Turn yourself into a Dancing Santa on Facebook or turn yourself into a Dancing Elf and share it on Facebook and Twitter.
