Whether your plans for the Fourth of July weekend involve working or celebrating, odds are, you'll be using technology of some sort. If your work involves employee recruitment, you may be part of the growing trend of using Facebook to search for new hires. If you live in the San Francisco Bay area, you may be using social media to follow the effects of the BART strike and plan accordingly. For those able to take time off, there are a number of new apps that may add convenience or provide entertainment to your leisure time. You can take better pictures of fireworks, read up on Fourth of July trivia, or book a restaurant table at a discount using Groupon Reserve. Whatever your plans entail, have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
