Do you know what Facebook is? How about Twitter? Of course you do - unless, as they say, you've been living under a rock. Nowadays, you'd be hard pressed to find someone who hasn't at least heard of these social media websites, even if they've never used them.
But what about HootSuite or RockMelt, have you heard of them? Or TweetDeck, does that ring a bell?
There are certain things that you should not tweet because they are annoying: your FourSquare check-ins; Instagram photos of your lunch meat; the artist and the song you are currently listening to on iTunes.
Most marketers are tweeting too much on the wrong days, not using hashtags enough and almost never do the one thing that will dramatically boost their retweets -- ask for them -- according to a new s...
If you're like me, you spend a good deal of time on the road. Whether it's at an airport, on a train or in a car, you're mobile and your digital life is mobile too.
The pervasiveness of tablets and smartphones (in addition to the already ubiquitous laptop) is growing daily. Just this week, Apple announced that it sold 37 million iPhones and 15.4 million iPads in the fourth quarter of 2011 alone.

Robin Good: Facebook has just announced that it is enabling across all accounts a "file sharing" feature inside Facebook Groups.
From the original article: "The social network has revealed to Mashable that all Groups will now offer the ability to send files.
This update rolls out to a small percentage of groups Thursday, and will become available to others during the following days. If you don’t have the feature already, Facebook wants you to know you’ll have it “soon.”
Facebook Groups for Schools, launched last month, incorporated the file-sharing feature — but you needed a .edu address to use it.
Users can upload most file types up to 25MB — the same file size limit as Gmail. The exceptions: music files (sorry, old-school Napster fans) and executable (.exe) files (sorry, hackers). But e-books, comics, music videos and other small movies are fair game."
The majority of us like routine and familiarity. Mess with someone’s habitual routine and watch them start to sweat, stress and squirm.

Facebook’s new timeline is now live on both the personal profiles and pages and it has taken the known and familiar and replaced it with a very new design.
Steve Jobs said in an interview with Wired magazine in 1997 “People think that design is how it looks, but it goes much deeper than that, it is actually how it works”
So does the new Facebook timeline design “work”?
The impact for business is that it needs to evaluate the implications of these changes to ensure that they maintain their engagement and utilise the stronger visual format that the brand “pages” now have.
So the changes are in place and the dust has settled, what are the implications for the managers, administrators and users of the “new”Facebook timeline “page”.

It's a brand's worst nightmare. Your products are on the supermarket shelves, in people's homes - and there's a problem discovered with a batch. At worst, a potentially life-threatening one. You have to recall - and quickly.
