iPhone 5 Sells Out; Apple Delays Ship Date

iPhone 5 Sells Out; Apple Delays Ship Date | Business Futures | Scoop.it
If you want to skip the lines and order an iPhone 5 online you're out of luck now: Shipping dates have been pushed back for preorders.

Demand for the device is so strong that Apple sold out of its initial inventory in an hour and pushed back its shipping date for such pre-orders. Apple’s website began taking orders for the product at midnight PST on Friday. An hour later, though, the shipping times for the device were delayed from the original Sept. 21 to two weeks, or Sept. 28, according to Dow Jones. As of Friday morning EST, Apple was still promising the two-week wait for shipping.

Sorry, Marketers, You're Doing Facebook Wrong

Sorry, Marketers, You're Doing Facebook Wrong | Business Futures | Scoop.it
Marketers aren't posting enough on Facebook on the weekends and at night, according to a new report from Buddy Media.

If you’re looking to take a day off from posting on Facebook, choose Wednesday, but don’t rest on Sunday or you’ll miss the best opportunity of the week.That’s the advice from Buddy Media‘s “Strategies for Effective Wall Posts: A Timeline Analysis,” a report based on activity from 1,800 of the world’s biggest brand pages from April 1 to May 31.

As with previous Buddy Media reports on the subject, the analysis found that marketers are still posting too little on weekends and at night and when they do post, they’re way too verbose.

What You Can Learn from Celebrities About Social Media

What You Can Learn from Celebrities About Social Media | Business Futures | Scoop.it

In the time it takes to say "verified," a celebrity can get millions of followers on social media without putting in much effort. But, even though their fame hooks a lot of followers, business owners can learn from celebrities when it comes to managing social media.

It humanizes the typically unreachable mega star, and for the chance of acknowledgment -- being retweeted or receiving a reply over Facebook from a famous person can make a fan's day.
