Hashtags are coming to Facebook whether we like it or not. (Poltergeist voice) They're here! We already have Twitter, Instagram, Tumbler, Pinterest and Google+ bombarding us with ######## HASHTAGS!

Night Out with Family and Net10 Wireless #Net10Latino

It's been a little over a month now that our family has tested out the Net10 Wireless service and I have to say our boys have been a bit spoiled with their own phone and the husband has been spoiled with the money we saved on phones and service! With Net10 Wireless, everyone in the family can get their own smartphone, plus unlimited everything—all for half of what a contract plan would charge. Our family recently had … [Read more...]
