By Meghan Gargan Every now and then there is a Likeable blog post that demands a follow up!
Last February, my Meg(h)an counterpart wrote about taking your techie passion offline with some socially-inspired products and merchandise. Since then we’ve seen new platforms introduced, old platforms updated and the desire for social integration online and off increasing at a rapid rate. So, it only makes sense that more innovative, fun and somewhat ingenious social merchandising would do the same.
So, without further ado, I present to you the next 7 products to integrate your on and off line social passion!
