Is your business on Pinterest yet? No? Well, what are you waiting for? After all, it’s only quite possibly the hottest thing going in the social media space today. From tasty recipes to artistic photo galleries, this site is showing that it can be incredibly useful for sharing almost everything visual. We have clearly reached the point where we can say this thing is not a fad. Pinterest is a bonafide powerhouse social marketers can no longer afford to ignore.
Despite the vast and utter hugeness of Facebook, Twitter has a few more Fortune 500 companies on their platform instead of Facebook. The difference isn’t much and the circumstances behind the fact are unknown (not every company should be on Facebook or Twitter), but it still makes for an excellent tidbit that can be used by Twitter fanboys.
For years, Facebook, Twitter, and most other forms of social media have had a fairly friendly online culture. Sure, on occasion you might come across someone bashing their ex on their Wall or a Tweet from an Exec that should have never gone public, but even these negative statements are met with strong reprimands.

One of them is inbound marketing, and this one has its own set of advantages.
Before I start this blog I want to get this out of the way…yes, I know wrestling is fake. Now that we’ve gotten that out in the open let me go on to say that I also watch wrestling from time to time and happen to enjoy it. It’s the perfect mix of ridiculous storylines and actual athleticism for an easily entertained male (and some females). While the WWE is no longer at the top of its game, there is still that certain time of year where the casual fans are drawn back in: Wrestlemania.
Facebook recently launched its much talked about timeline to the user base. It is essentially a new feature that turns the user’s profile into a scrapbook by using their onsite activity to highlight who they are, what they like, and so forth.
Is it just me, or has the world become smaller and smaller? Maybe yes, but I really think that the Internet has mostly everything to do with it.
We have basically lost the element of surprise. The chance to really meet someone new, someone you have literally never seen before is a miracle to come by these days.
