Since the early beta of the first version of Livefyre, the real-time comments system, I’ve been a huge fan. The potential was always huge, and this was proven time and time again with each update. This is especially true given their very cool new solution, Livefyre Sidenotes.

These six metrics offer just some of the immediate ways you can measure how successfully your social media goals were met. There are more still, including monitoring tools and more defined analytics. Which ones you use will  depend on the goals you’ve set and how you define success.

Think determining your social media ROI is hard? It's not, if you know what you should be measuring.

"There are two interesting demographic anomalies being played out in the United States right now. And the reason they are interesting is that they aren't anomalies. They could be called corrections." 

Outstanding piece from +Richard Becker on the future of America and where business mindsets need to adapt.

15 years already. Still seems like only yesterday. And we seem no further forward on responsible dialogue around gun control. Here's hoping it's not another 15 years before common sense wins through, and no other families need to go through this.
