Nice account of the changing norm within a parental journey of social media acceptance.
Here's some Friday fun.. It has become a staple of the Facebook world: the social media guru. These are the “experts” in social media marketing who often come armed with an iron-clad addiction to Twitter to go with questionable credentials in marketing. Here are some signs if you’re falling into the guru category....

A dramatic video tonight emerged of a man with bloodied hands, carrying knives and ranting 'We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you', after a serving soldier was hacked to death by two men just 200 yards from an Army barracks.
The man can be seen and heard talking to the camera. The video came as terrified eyewitnesses saw two men shot by police marksmen after the machete attack in Woolwich, south-east London.
The two men are thought to have waited around for 20 minutes until Metropolitan Police officers arrived and then tried to attack them - but were swiftly shot by armed policemen, including a woman.
They apparently shouted 'Allahu Akbar', which means 'God is great' in Arabic, and tried to film the attack, the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson said.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe tonight confirmed two men had been arrested and officers from the counter-terrorist unit were leading the investigation into the killing.
He said: 'It is hard to comprehend the shocking and horrific scenes we have seen this afternoon on a busy street as Londoners went about their day as normal. We have launched a murder investigation.'
Theresa May tonight called a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee in response to the machete and knife attack on the man who was wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt.
The Home Secretary said she had been briefed on the killing by the head of MI5 and police later confirmed they were treating the incident as a possible terror attack.

The Cobra meeting heard that security has been tightened at Woolwich barracks and increased at all London barracks. It was also told there are strong indications that this was a terrorist incident.
Mrs May said said: ‘What happened today in Woolwich was a sickening and barbaric attack. This attack was an attack on everyone in the UK. It will be condemned by people from every community.

Congrats! Something I'll never do...I could have a bucket list a thousand ticks long, and this would not be on it--not because I don't regard the feat, but because it would amount to my last worldly act. They'd find me halfway up the following year, huddled in the snow like a botfly.

Smart tvs, with internet browsers built-in, will be (or are) the standard, so it's natural that VOD will be the way to watch most things.
With so many distractions and different ways to hear songs, it's getting to be pretty impossible to give full albums the attention they deserve. When was the last time you actually listened to one all the way through, without any interruptions?
Ah, here's another testament to the brave new world which is swallowing us. I'm one of those who has difficulty remembering the last full album I listened to without interruption. How about you?
There is no denying that social media is taking over the world, but while that may be true, that means there are some things to avoid in social media.
Good article, with some pieces of advice that are very much spot-on. Why do some seem to consider it a recreational activity to pick fights on social media? Maybe it has something to do with the bravery of being out of range.
Double standard much? Friday marketing fun... Debate has heated up in Sweden regarding American Apparel's sexualization of its female models. The retailer's shock-tactic ads featuring naked women are certainly nothing new. But this week Swedish blogger Emelie Eriksson made headlines by juxtaposing male models' poses in unisex American Apparel Clothing with the R-rated images of women wearing the same shirts (often sans pants). To show how American Apparel's double standard works, a small Swedish clothing company named byPM decided to do a photo shoot in which a man posed in the same position....
