Is there enough place that Google has ads showing? Apparently not it found there was some space in the +Google Play store to throw in some more Ads... http://android-developers.blogspot.nl/2015/02/a-new-way-to-promote-your-app-on-google.html

Very interesting article on Facebook content and the future...
Facebook's offer to publications to host their content may be the sort they cannot refuse. Most simply can't compete on mobile.

According to the Times' sources, not every publication is so interested in the social network's idea, fearing that the Facebook model would mean sharing (and perhaps losing) revenue with the social network. 
Facebook is reportedly working with prominent news sources to host their content on its pages and share in the advertising revenue.

For his third trip to the one of the world’s largest caves, photographer Ryan Deboodt brought along a drone fitted with a GoPro camera. This incredible video is the result of eight days of camping and exploring Son Doong Cave, in Vietnam’s Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.

Story
Tagline
I share a lot of content and ideas that drive me into rants but more often inspire or educate.
Introduction
I play in the digital space and have been doing it since 1994 so I have a good understanding and interest in most topics so please engage with me and feel free to share and comment on anything I share via this channel. 

I started out in this industry in 2008 under The Lost Agency as a web analyst, since I started back then have worked with several web development companies and several marketing agencies. I've worked on projects focused on Google AdWords, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Campaigns, Social Media Strategies, SEO Audits, SEO Technical Projects, Link Building Projects and Digital Strategies.

I usually try and blog over at Lost Press Marketing which is my main site but also can be found writing for several industry blogs when I get a good topic and some headspace to write a decent post. I also love promoting conferences and events and working to increase the number of interviews done with industry players.

I'm now based in Amsterdam working for Marktplaats which is part of ebay classifieds group.  Marktplaats is a leading Dutch classifieds platform for Autos, HolidaysServices, Daily Deals, Outlets and more!

I also work with the awesome and highly social team of 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be which is the largest free classifieds site in Belgium.

Also can you please ensure that you have some details on your profile and some links to your projects or social profiles so I can add you to the right circle. I don't add many people to my circles so please don't feel offended if we engage and I don't add you back.
Bragging rights
I started my own marketing agency, co-authored a book on marketing.... I've worked with some big brands and done some amazing SEO projects and now working in Europe for ebay classifieds group.

I want to start this review off with the statement that this place is around 50 euros a night... the place across the road is anything from 100-200 euros a night so put that into perspective when staying here. If you are spending a long time in Brussels this place might not be ideal but if you just need a place to crash this place is perfect for the price! The staff do remind you of faulty towers with a policy of not allowing a single carry on bag to accompany you when having breakfast, and insist on you storing it in the luggage room which actually means putting it just next to the reception counter. Very strange to enforce such rules when you are the only person in the breakfast area... Downsides: The 10 euros breakfast was disappointing for price The heaters in the room are set on hellfire mode so expect to wake up sweating The elevators are tiny and only hold 4 people and no luggage The toilet seat did not fit the size of the toilet bowl The toilet roll holder was broken There was no hook for the shower head so you had to hold it The towels in the bathroom were a little small There was no free toiletries (but they have soap/gel dispensers instead) which is better for the environment as less waste and you already have enough hotel soap at home you never use anyway... Upsides: The place is cheap The rooms were clean The bathroom is quite big and reasonably renovated The room furniture was renovated and quite nice There is soap and bath gel dispensers in the bathroom that are hypoallergenic The shower pressure was insanely good, firehose level if you open the taps on full I had a decent new Samsung LCD tv in my room My bed was reasonably comfy Breakfast is served until 10am so you can sleep in if you had a late night

I stayed here back in November 2013 and it was not the best hostel I stayed at and was a little disappointed that they didn't provide towels when booking a private room, I didn't pick the hostel for anything more than a place to sleep the night. The room was also quite cold and I ended up getting sick after staying here which wasn't helped by the temperature of the room. Also a little expensive compared to other hostels I've stayed at and next time I'll probably just opt for a cheap hotel room and have a nicer stay.

Obviously they have a pretty decent range of Adidas products in this store but sadly most of them don't have any prices.... it seems to be more of a product demonstration store than a typical retain store. But if you love Adidas it can be a really good place to checkout what new items they have or if you are seeking unique or limited edition Adidas products.

This was a fairly decent location for the recent Friends of Search event, the conference halls were a decent size and there was a reasonable amount of networking space. There is a free cloak room in the basement area along with toilets, the only problem you might have is there is only one small lift so expect to use the stairs a bit to get between the floors. There is also some cool art scattered around the floors that you can discover.

If you are looking for specific health products or a bit of a health nut then this is the perfect place for you. They have a great range of vitamins, and some really yummy treats from unique chocolates, nuts and dried fruits. If they don't have something you are looking for you can ask their staff as they might be able to order it in or find it at one of their other locations.

A really good cafe if you want to relax and get some work done, they have decent WiFi and the staff are helpful. It's worth knowing that you need to bring cash as they don't take Pin/Card. But they have some amazing Brazilian cheese balls (Pão de Quejo) which are epic and go great with a coffee or hot chocolate. If you love your coffee consider the caffee Lungo, if you order a hot chocolate they serve it with milk foam and a chocolate cup that melts into the milk which is quite nice.
