November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October).

There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

“We simply assume that the way we see things is the way they really are or the way they should be. And our attitudes and behaviors grow out of these assumptions.” – Stephen Covey
