Five Reasons Why Marketers FAIL on Facebook | Curation Revolution |
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 ( ). 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.

Life after Vine's death and the Big Shakeout is going to, as the Marines say, embrace the suck. Find out why on Curagami:
