As such,  Black Enterprise Magazine  would like to take the opportunity to step in as your technology advisers. Here, we've chosen products in 17 categories, which we believe have achieved success in their commitment to excellence in innovation. Congratulations to our 2013 CES Best in Show Award winners!

Attending the International Consumer Electronics Show, you’ll undoubtedly meet the best techies ever. This year there were more black bloggers, journalists, and analysts than ever before. It’s nice to know that the world will be able to read and watch CES coverage from an African-American perspective. Besides, the gadgets come and go. Next year, 4K LCD monitors may be obsolete, but the personal connections will exist for years to come. Here are just a few of the most interesting people that crossed my path on the first day of CES 2013.—Marcia Wade Talbert

Four popular social media management tools for your business.

ADD ALL YOUR SOCIAL PROFILES, ESPECIALLY FACEBOOK 

Everyone has a Klout score automatically generated from Twitter, which serves as the primary account. Up to 12 social media profiles can be linked to your account, with at least 6 more being added in the near future. Including more profiles creates a clearer picture of your brand’s total social impact, especially if your strongest platform is not Twitter. 

Tip: Adding Facebook significantly improves your score, more than adding other platforms.
