The most valuable goal for a business and brand on social media should be all forms of Endorsements

I'm putting this out there as a topic for conversation, and I'd like you to weigh in.

Using social media, rather than focusing on metrics such as likes, follows, plusses, etc., the goal and metric you should be focusing on is getting various forms of public endorsements of your brand, products, or content. These endorsements can be anything from Google Reviews and LinkedIn endorsements to referrals to the resharing of your content (an implied endorsement)

All else is contributory to this goal (on social).

Thoughts?

Dear cousins, this paper suggests the most RECENT common ancestor for all humans alive today may have lived only 2,000 years ago. That means everyone of you is my not very distant cousin.

iOS: If you want to create an iOS app or a Mac app, Apple would like you to use their new programming language, Swift. For those new to coding, Swifty is one of the easiest and simplest way to get started learning.
