This will be a bummer for businesses, but I can see why Facebook would take this step

Aaron Curtis's curator insight, September 7, 10:42 PM

Facebook :  Social Media's version of a Wrecking Ball.

Ever since the launch of Facebook, the social powerhouse website has destroyed barriers of all kinds. 

This clipping is bang on in regards to the "LIKE" gate. My view would be the same as the majority of others that have posted their reviews: I agree 100% in destroying that feature. 

When a company sends out their promotions through any social media site, they would be looking for an honest response, not some half whit "LIKE" just for someone else to advance on a game or gain a prize. 

This article shows that the companies want to be recognized for their hard work, not just because their an ad on a mass website. The organizations want a real response, not a forced like. So I say its time to " unleash the Kracken " and let Facebook wipe away all the strings holding back those app developers and have a less cluttered website. 

We want real feedback, not automated feedback.

 

Where are all the real people? If you find one, please share with us your thoughts

Make your bio unique and avoid those overused words and phrases. Focus on what you've done not what you are capable of doing! Be funny and memorable.

Tony Adams's curator insight, July 24, 11:30 PM

First impressions count, whatever the occasion.   It's definitely worth taking the time to get this part of your personal brand right.

 

More and more, first impressions are formed online - I now regularly search a candidate's Social Media presence before interviewing for a role on my teams.

 

Our challenge is to make sure that our central pitch is consistent and true (people can spot a fake!) but it needs to be tailored for each SM platform. 

 

Different words, same message.
