Flaunt your business on Facebook

Flaunt your business on Facebook | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it
In six months, Dean Salakas has gone from zero to hero on Facebook, with 20,000 fans.
Webgrrl's insight:

business owners must build the page, build a following and then engage and grow their audience by posting regularly.

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, September 5, 2013 4:14 AM

I love that this acknowledges how social media really works:


Salakas says he used sponsored posts and banner advertising to spread the word on his party-hire company, but they were ineffective, so now, he says, he sticks to posting thoughts, videos and photos to encourage "likes" and "shares" and spread his brand across the social media platform.


...Trying to predict what will fly and what will bomb however, is the hard part, he says.


“You can post something and think it's awesome and will go viral, and it doesn't even rate. Then you post something like a wine glass upside down with a candle on the top of it with a funny caption, and you get over 100 "shares". It surprises me all the time.”

Photographer Files $1 Billion Suit Against Getty for Licensing Her Public Domain Images [UPDATED]

Photographer Files $1 Billion Suit Against Getty for Licensing Her Public Domain Images [UPDATED] | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

In December, documentary photographer Carol Highsmith received a letter from Getty Images accusing her of copyright infringement for featuring one of her own photographs on her own website. It demanded payment of $120. This was how Highsmith came to learn that stock photo agencies Getty and Alamy had been sending similar threat letters and charging fees to users of her images, which she had donated to the Library of Congress for use by the general public at no charge. 

Now, Highsmith has filed a $1 billion copyright infringement suit against both Alamy and Getty for “gross misuse” of 18,755 of her photographs. | read more...

The downside of being happy

The downside of being happy | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Past studies have suggested that negative feelings can provide fodder for art and trigger more self-reflective thought. Others have shown that influential figures in science and art have a tendency toward depression. But research has not really demonstrated a direct link between sadness and many of the most lasting achievements in art history.

Now, a fascinating new study from an economist at the University of Southern Denmark appears to show that link.  | read more
