"The Internet is constantly changing and evolving alongside human demand and technological growth.

Pinterest Answers PR Pros' Prayers With Offer of Analytics | PR News | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Pinterest on Tuesday quelled some of its critics by finally giving page managers a way to measure and track how people interact with their content. The free product, called Pinterest Web Analytics, is Pinterest's latest effort to shore up its services for business purposes. Since Pinterest launched in 2010, a lack of measurement tools has been a sore spot with brands considering using the platform. Outside services, such as Curalate, have provided data on pins, re-pins, likes, shares and impressions, but that meant PR pros must use an external analytics interface—now, Pinterest is a one-stop measurement shop, à la Facebook Insights....

How Cadbury uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ | Econsultancy | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Cadbury appears to be readymade for social marketing as it is a historic brand with products that people love. However it hasn’t simply rested on its laurels and expected the ‘likes’ to come rolling in. In the past year we’ve reported on Cadbury’s use of Facebook and Google+ for product launches, as well as its shift away from traditional media thanks to its success in social media. Therefore I thought it would be interesting take a closer look at how the brand uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. This post is the latest in a series that has already examined the social strategies of several other major consumer brands, including ASOS, Tesco, McDonald’s and Red Bull...

Copyright law is a tangle. Even copyright attorneys agree that copyright infringement is not only difficult to prove, but it's rarely worth pursuing in the legal system [for a number or reasons].

 

I'm speaking from experience.

 

However, having the knowledge this post provides regarding what & what not to do can save you a lot of trouble.
