I am working with a client who just started using facebook last year. They have 261 followers. Now he wants to jump into twitter. I need to discourage this because he is not ready and really wants to use the platform in the same way as Facebook. Does anyone have a great article that could help my case to discourage him from adding another todo to his list?

I am working on a mother's day project that involves submitting a photo of a pancake. The one in the image is an apple pancake, drizzled in caramel with a healthy dollop of whip cream (yes, I got to eat it afterwards.) Please help me choose the best photo by voting with your +1

I don't really see any value in it.  I use Facebook for both personal and business.  For business, you can't beat Facebook because that is where the people are.  For personal, I really just don't need yet another social network.  There is nothing unique or compelling about it.  My friends and family are on Facebook and Google+.

Was stunned to find the photo I submitted for a publicity project used on the cover of the magazine. Not paid and no credit, but this amateur was thrilled!  I was even further surprised when I found out that the rep at the magazine thought I had hired a professional photographer for the shoot. Sometimes in life we just get lucky and this was one of those moments.

I am grateful for all of you I have "met" online, but I have to agree with this short film that I miss face-to-face interactions.

I think, I learn, I do.
Introduction
I'm lucky to have a life that others might envy. I love my two sons, I really enjoy my job and I occasionally get to travel.
 
I have worked in the cultural sector since I can remember -  usher, box office staff, board member, arts marketer and social media manager. My world has expanded over the last few years and I can now include higher education marketing, restaurant marketing and public safety marketing to my resume. Ask me which hat I'm wearing today.
 
The Ticket Maven - connects your art with your audience. Feel free to shoot me a question about marketing or customer growth. I'd love to collaborate with you.
 
I attended Buena Vista University (BA) and Columbia College (MA) studying management.
 
Dabbled as an actor in various community theatre productions, directed two original musicals which were written by my good friend Andrew Offenburger and am currently the production manager for my family.
