This is really making me want to try blab now +Janet Fouts !
I couldn’t get Katy Perry’s song, “I Kissed A Girl”, out of my head during my first two Blabs recently because as I was soaking it all in, learning the ropes and trying something new, I realized

I loved these examples of extraordinary infographics from +HubSpot. I hadn't seen interactive or animated gif infographics before -- know of more examples like these? 
Get inspired by these stunning infographic examples from the past year.

An interesting read, coming out of the UMass Dartmouth study of nonprofits -- how they are using social media, which channels, and that they use it to drive donations.

Know any women working to keep the internet open or working on ways the Internet makes democracy stronger, or both? Urge her to apply by 5/1 for a full scholarship to the Personal Democracy Forum.
Google and Personal Democracy Media are teaming up to offer registration and travel fellowships for women working in civic technology to the 11th annual Personal Democracy Forum, June 5-6, 2014 at NYU

Overall, only 46% of marketers are measuring engagement. How do you measure it? [ Among those who were measuring engagement, interaction rates were the most important metric used, cited by 85.7% of US agency and marketing executives. Reaching influencers was a close second (82.9%), followed by driving traffic to retail locations/websites and generating sales/return on investment.]

Some cool stats on Instagram growth on brands, and engagement per post via @emarketer. Applicable to #nptech as well, I'd imagine.

Great stats, esp around fundraising. Run/walk/ride event fundraisers who send 15+ emails raise much more $, for example.
 
Brand those landing pages people!

Killer article on how to write an effective, yet brief, social media employee policy. Also pinned to my Social Media Policies pinboard.
Here's how to create a social media policy that meets legal requirements and opens opportunities for employees to support your social media efforts.

Hey Mary Ellen, I don't think the school would allow that, and in any case, they do offer me lodging. However, I plan to be at graduation Aug 23rd, and definitely would love to connect then!

Great list of folks over 50 who excel at tech and "get it." Thanks +Janet Fouts  for putting this together.
You know what? I'm tired of hearing people say I'm over 50, too old to understand this stuff or similar balderdash. I'm over 50 and I get it, so can you! I've

Twitter just got a lot more mobile: tag up to 10 people in a photo and still retain your 140 characters. Mobile only: this is where the internet is going, folks.

I found this VERY thought-provoking. Especially the part about Facebook buying a company at odds with its own business strategy. Made me think that Facebook is wicked savvy.
