Would you market a product that capitalized on a tragedy? What if your client pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds to helping the victims recover? Makes the question much harder to answer, for me at least. Before reading today's post on the +Inflow blog, I would say it would completely depend on the client's true intentions and messaging, as well as the potential impact on the victims of the tragedy (and their friends and family). Now I'm thinking that in the majority of situations, it simply isn't worth the long-term risks to the client and those impacted by the tragedy, which can never be accurately assessed... but need to marinate on this quite a bit more. I'd love to hear what you think about this very important topic!
Today on the Inflow blog we're talking about questionable ethics in content marketing. Add your voice to the conversation -
When it comes to content marketing and sensitive materials, it's critical to use sound judgment and foresight before getting involved in something viral.

Thanks for sharing, Christy. I think we're still really mulling this over here too. With so many opportunities that come up, I feel more and more that it's critical to have that ethical beacon already established for both the agency brand and that of the client.

So Google+ takes away +1 data and replaces it with "views", hmm ... does anyone know what the new metric actually measures -- and if +1 data will return? While I am not thrilled about this new change as it currently stands, I am hopeful that the +1 data will return, and that we will be rewarded for our patience with more post-level data (as mentioned by +Mike Allton in his blog post on +The Social Media Hat). Many thanks to Mike for sharing this!
While people and pages have always shown how many other people have circled them, Google has now added the ability to see how many times your profile or page has been Viewed. +Kenneth Manesse Sr. pointed out that now, on your profile page next to your follower count, there's a new metric called Views. The metric is there for both personal profiles and business Pages.

Does anyone have any great resources for keeping up with changes in multi-local SEO? Blogs, guides, forums, etc.  (Yes, I just looked through the resources section of this community. Good stuff in there, but didn't see anything on multi-local.) Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

PS - Please let me know if I should post this Q somewhere else, +Max Minzer.

Have you changed your passwords (and security keys) on accounts affected by Heartbleed yet? Remember that you will need to change your password as soon as an affected site installs the fix. If you change your password before an affected site does their part, you'll need to do it again as they do install the fix - ASAP! Most reputable service providers and vendors are emailing users when they install the fix. I found some in my spam folder, so check yours, too!

To view the short list of major sites that were and were not affected by Heartbleed, and which ones have issued Fix SSL, click through to the Mashable article below. I've listed some other links that you may find helpful here. Please add to this list in the comments below, thanks!
