The article seems to be focused on a comparison between the effectiveness of marketing on Facebook or Twitter, with very little information regarding other sources of social media. Facebook is a decidedly more effective marketing tool than Twitter is, with their brand much more likely to spread there than on Twitter. However, Facebook is also a little bit more objective, due to how lenient females are on Twitter. While it does give a little bit of detail regarding how effective the two social media platforms are, much of these statements are something that we already knew and so this article does not contribute much to the understanding of branding.

Not Just Pretty: Building Emotion Into Your Websites | Business Growth through Online Sales and Marketing | Scoop.it
Emotional design has become a powerful tool in creating exceptional user experiences for websites. However, emotions did not use to play such an important role on the Web.


Such a cool article! Every entrepreneur, biz executive, and nonprofit needs to read this one.


Why? Because emotion is at the heart of effective storytelling. And websites can be imbued with stories and story elements --particulary emotion.


Now this is not about being 'emotional'. It is about understanding what triggers emotions within your viewers/readers that creates connection, fosters trust and loyalty, and moves them to action -- while being authentic and true to yourself.


This article is rich in ideas and how-tos -- and very complete. Take the time to savor it. Then start thinking about your website and how you can upgrade it with both stories, and imbueing it with emotional elements for max effect.
