Samsung Electronics Co. apologized and promised compensation to chip factory workers who suffered cancers linked to chemical exposure, a rare win for families and activists seven years after the death ...
Although not acknowledging 'guilt', Samsung is doing the honorable thing......but it makes one wonder.....but then, I am a natural cynic when it comes to corporate 'gestures'......
Google may kill its social network, Google+, following Vic Gundotra's departure.Google is reportedly planning to dismantle its social network, Google+. Google will consider Google+ a platform rather than a product, TechCrunch reports, citing "multiple sources.
"This means that it will no longer exist as a social network aimed at competing with Facebook, but it still might be integrated into Google's existing products. The company has allegedly been shifting the teams that used to be at "the core" of Google+ and is moving more talent toward the Android team....
Like countless others, I truly hope all this is premature 'idle chat'....like what the phone will look like, etc. Google+ is a mainstay of mine; I have met and made numerous friends and business contacts/learned a multitude of new things/been introduced to entirely new concepts/the list goes on and on.
Please, if you feel as I do, LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD TO GOOGLE! KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF GOOGLE+ UNLESS IT IS IMPROVEMENT TO UTILIZATION, ETC.
Excerpt from the article by Social Media Examiner: "Here you’ll discover five must-have tools every Facebook page admin can use to create and share content that kills.
#1: Create a Monitoring System Hyperalerts is a versatile tool you’re going to love. It notifies you via email about items you choose such incoming Facebook comments or messages, published posts and more. You could rely on Facebook’s messages and the activity log, but they aren’t always reliable and you can miss things.
You can customize your alerts based on type of post (updates, comments or messages), who’s posting (fans, admins or anyone) and how often you want to be notified. Where Hyperalerts really shines is in its ability to monitor competitors’ Facebook pages. Hyperalerts identifies the type of content other pages are sharing and what their fans are saying, then sends you an email with specific posts and comments from their fans.
#2: Add Functionality You can leverage Facebook page tabs to share content from your other social profiles as well. You can display your latest tweets, share your favorite Pinterest boards or create a video wall to display videos from your YouTube or Vimeo channel. Third-party services like ShortStack provide an easy solution to that problem. ShortStack offers hundreds of easy-to-use templates, or you can build your own if you want. Both options are customizable.
Facebook tabs aren’t available on mobile devices. ShortStack lets you create versions of tabs that are mobile-friendly. You just have to share the permalink of the tab in a regular status update to give fans access.
#3: Find Trending Hashtags Tagboard is a free tool that lets you do cross-platform hashtag searches. You can search Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Vine to see which hashtags are trending, which overlap and which match your social marketing plan.
#4: Create Engaging Images Visual content is a huge factor in success on any platform. But if you don’t have an in-house graphic designer or access to Adobe Photoshop, don’t despair. Even if you aren’t a designer, Canva is a free online alternative that helps you create engaging images in no time.
#5: Use a Good Content Curation Tool You can’t be everywhere at once and you can’t spend all of your time creating new content. If you’re a Facebook page admin, you know the importance of a good content curation tool.
One of my favorites is Swayy. It analyzes the material (and its sources) you share on Facebook, and then recommends content based on related keywords. If you like something Swayy suggests, you can share it on your connected social accounts (including Facebook) or schedule it to publish later..."
As if the lawsuit with Samsung isn't enough.......Apple CEO Tim Cook tried to 'dis' Android at the WWDC. For those out there who may not be familiar with operating systems.... Android is the free operating system distributed by Google and used by most competing mobile-phone companies, such as Samsung. (hmmmmm....Samsung?)
Cook told attendees that 130 million Apple customers who bought one of the company's products in the last 12 months were first-time Apple buyers. He made a shameful attempt at 'humor' (??? ... seems more like an attempt at defamation and a continuance of poor name -calling tactics); he noted, "Many of these customers were switchers from Android. They had bought an Android phone, by mistake, and then sought a better experience. And a better life. And decided to check out iPhone and iOS." ... oh yeah, that's real funny....NOT.
Cook did manage to get a laugh from the audience (remember, it's an Apple audience.....); earlier he had 'poked' Microsoft's Windows system.
He gave this stat: "Nearly half of our customers in China in the past six months switched from Android to iPhone. This is incredible." (NOT INCREDIBLE! Apple began focusing on China only recently, and with most of the Chinese market being on Android, where else were those customers going to come from?) It doesn't take a rocket scientist.
NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama and Sept. 11 survivors, rescuers and victims' relatives are expected to mark the opening of the 9/11 museum, where the story of the terrorist attacks is told on a scale as big as the twin towers' columns and as intimate as victims' last voicemails.
This is definitely a 'must go and see' place for every family....remember 'family' in my estimation consists of
First, proper acknowledgement to topseos.news for this awesome list. These guys really know their stuff! If you are into PPC marketing, or considering it as an option, save this article and list. Trust me, it will be worth its weight in gold!
PPC marketing would seem to be 'flooded', when actually the only flooding would appear to be a multitude of avid affiliates all trying to sell the same thing!
Research your 'niche', research the keywords you plan to use, make a 'plan' of what you want to accomplish, how, when. Too many out there are merely looking at the payout figure and running amok on the internet armed with scammy/spammy ads. I am personally SICK of seeing the same 'popup' or ad being put out there with hundreds of different 'authors'.
Try to become a member of multiple firms; this greatly increases not only your selection choices, but can be used for credance in the market.
Keep good records of your actions: which campaign? which company? Word To The Wise: do not duplicate your actions with more than one company for the same ad....trust me, there ARE ramifications!
More insight will be coming later on.....too long of an article is a no -no!
