Five Reasons Why Marketers FAIL on Facebook

Five Reasons Why Marketers FAIL on Facebook | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
What content works best, what time to publish updates and how to use sponsored stories are consistent themes being discussed among nonprofit marketers.


Marty Note
Great piece that goes perfectly with a note I just made on how companies waste Social Media money (http://www.scoop.it/t/curation-revolution/p/3403673120/the-3-worst-ways-companies-waste-money-in-social-media ). In that note I shared my suspicion that the Facebook problem, no one making any money there, is as much our fault as Internet marketers as the platform creators.

This excellent article from Huffington provides the reasons why we fail in Facebook and every point here rings TRUE. If you have other tactics we IMers need to change to be successful in Facebook share your thoughts. I will grind on it to and see what I come up with.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
