I imagine there are more than a few brands whose SEO's are going through this right now.

In real life, I don't think that conversation ends with a hug. More like the kid walking out of the office with all the stuff from his desk in a box. 

Maybe Mark Z will hire him and give him a hug?

One Hour to Showtime

I'm privileged to have the chance to to be the +Those 4 Girls weekly show to follow up on this topic.  The first panel discussion generated some interesting ideas, great quotes, and passionate responses from the audience.  It will be interesting to see where the discussion leads this time.  This is a controversial topic, but one worth tackling.
 
Welcome to +Those 4 Girls weekly show!!

Meet Our Guests This Week!!!

+Clarissa Silva - She is a Behavioral Scientist and Clinician with 16 years of experience in mental health, behavioral science, and public health. She is the author of a very tongue-in-cheek relationship wellness blog, "YOU'RE JUST A DUMBASS", to help people select and maintain healthy relationships and avoid some of the difficult life lessons that one encounters in suboptimal relationships. On http://yourejustadumbass.com, she shares techniques that she developed to help clients with creating relationship wellness in their lives.
She is also the creator of http://playidealdate.com. She is developing this concept to offer people a unique approach to dating. What makes Play Ideal Date different is a mixed method matching system based on personalized attention and online dating! It is designed to be a modernized version of the "Dating Game" and appeared as an Official Google Hangout on Air during Social Media Week 2013 and was featured in Google Local NY's September 2013 Newsletter.
She holds an MSW from the University of Michigan and a BA from Hunter College. She has been featured on FOX, NBC, HuffPostLive, ABC, PR Newswire and Vista magazine.

 +Lance Fields - I am on Google Plus to engage and connect with the people behind the keyboards around the world. I get to share my experiences from my point of view so that those who it resonates with will hopefully share some of theirs. The multitude of uses for Google Plus are in large part what I find so fascinating and witnessing each persons creation, minute to minute is akin to seeing a micro-verse develop right before my eyes. I've had a successful blog, a blog-talk radio show, both very past tense...now, I simply enjoy the camaraderie and I get to promote people and businesses I believe in.


+Eli Fennell  - I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else. I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after all these years and into a wonderful and supportive family that stuck together through all the trials we faced.
I'm an absolute technology geek. If software runs on it, I want to know about it. I've had many passions in my life, and nearly all of them have involved technology and science, but art, philosophy, and even a mystical streak also help define me. I can also geek out on stuff like Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and Homeland. The geekery runs deep within me, but so does the artist and the dreamer.
I'm also an Elder Scrolls addict, 1/16th Ewok, half Vulcan, and three-quarters Irish potato stew. I love technology and how it changes our lives. There's something almost spiritual about how new technologies connect and empower us. And it's really cool, too.
I talk about Social Media Marketing, Technology, and assorted nerdishness and geekery, and occasionally try my hand (with some successes and some failures) at a bit of humor. I love to create conversations across my social networks, and to help others find their own voice through social media and social media marketing. I am available to help small businesses succeed at SEO & Social Media, and for I.T.

+Kirstin Hancock - My background is in education although I no longer work in a an educational environment. I spent fifteen years in primary schools until I decided that juggling three small children and a full time career was not what I wanted.
My perspective of life has been created from the experiences I have had travelling around the world and from my upbringing in a large family. I taught firstly in NZ and then in Inner City London schools for fifteen years. I loved teaching, crafting individuals to be responsible individuals who think for themselves and make informed decisions. As well as building a successful business with my husband, I am mummy to three small very active girls.

+Carmen Rojas - Originally from the sunflower state of Kansas and a graduate of Kansas State University with an MBA, I have been in the marketing business for the past 10 years. I began in sports marketing but have really enjoyed the growth of digital marketing and analytics. I have worked with brands such as Coca-Cola, Subway, Shell and recently started a digital marketing consulting group called "Rojas Consulting" www.rojasconsulting.net
I am a military wife to a Navy Chief, and a mother of a 7 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. I am a dog lover with a Golden Retriever and a Dachshund.
I am a third generation member of Jack and Jill of America, an organization made up of mothers of color and seeks to improve the opportunities of our and all children.
Call to action: We recently launched a new marketing program called Performance Based Marketing which guarantees that the client only pays for marketing that reaches the goals of the business. If you want to stop paying for marketing and praying for results, check us out at www.rojasconsulting.net

+Greg Boysaw - December baby born and raised in Champaign,IL. I received a BS Degree in Political Science/Minor- Communications...Signed (2) NFL contracts, with NY Giants & Kansas City Chiefs...Spent (20yrs) in Indpls-IN where I worked (+3yrs) in the Health Care Industry as a Operations Director/Training Director for Bally's Scandinavian and (+3yrs) Operations Director/Head Therapist Aid/Training Director for Grastech Physical Therapy & Training Center...I then spent (14yrs) as a Trooper with the Indiana State Police/Indpls before relocating to Denver-CO to take a crack at Corporate Security as a Project Manager with US Security Associates (our client, Oracle)...I presently manage the Security Department for (3) different divisions, at (2) Oracle sites/properties in the Denver area...I am also the proud father of (2), Nick & Paige Boysaw.

+Athaliah Renee is a mom to the loveliest little boy in the world and a wife to a rough, tough grizzly man from New Zealand. She is the co-founder of the Seven Sentence Blog and the creator and digital strategist behind "Woman at the Start" an online brand that works specifically with a diverse range of women who are starting businesses.

+Those 4 Girls started a conversation that impacts the way women do business through REAL business coaching. Link arms with us to push past your limits and raise the life you’re creating! By supporting each other’s passions, we WILL make our world a better place. When we make our world better, we change our culture, and in turn change the way we treat each other in business.

We talk each week about topics that affect us as women, and yes the gentlemen are more than welcome!! Our focus is YOU! We want to promote you and what you need to grow your business or positively impact your life!

I'm a big fan of +The Onion, and this is pretty funny, but this is one of those cases where the truth is more hilarious than fiction. Millions of people squandering a few bucks on an app that does nothing but connect you with other people who wasted money on the same app is not only not satire, it is nothing next to a company entertaining multimillion dollar offers for an app that appears primarily used by Silicon Valley employees to complain about how there's no free latte in the cafeteria (cough Secret cough).

Still, they nailed it.
 
This is just too perfect. Well done once again, +The Onion.
NEW YORK—Sources confirmed Thursday that millions nationwide are signing up for Squandr, a new social discovery app employing GPS technology to match users with others in their vicinity who also wasted $2.99 on the same software.

Happy 4 Square Anniversary

Apparently I joined +Foursquare 3-years ago today. It's been a good 3-years. I know it may not be the biggest social network, and I've never connected to more than a handful of people on it, but I keep coming back and using it. Isn't that the definition of a good product, in the end?

+Post Ads are rolling out to Pages with over 1000 Followers.
 
Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers: goo.gl/6gNlsx.

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

In 2004, Gmail revolutionized web email, becoming one of the first true web apps and helping forever reshape our expectations for both the quality and the cost of email service and storage.

Since 2013, however, Google has been revolutionizing email all over again.  Last year, as part of the tightening integration between services via the Google+ social layer, Google added a feature to allow you to email people in your Circles without knowing their email address just by typing in their name and choosing their profile from the suggestions list.  This was a step in the direction of solving a problem traditionally inherent to email: the need to know someone's exact email address to email them.  In an era where you can type in a name in Facebook and likely find the person you're looking for, this weakness seems increasingly unacceptable.

Now Google is taking the next step by tying Gmail into Google+ photo backups.  For Gmail users who already enabled autobackup (or use it from their PC), this finally may give them a reason to use Google+ Photos beyond a simple backup copy (one they may not even be aware exists).

More importantly, as +Kyle Wiggers points out, it solves a serious problem we've all experienced: how to get photos from your phone (or smart camera, tablet, etc...) to your desktop email with little to no friction (and as few additional steps as possible) from pointing and shooting to sharing from your browser-based desktop email service.

For many users, discovering this feature will likely be serendipitous, a happy accident of having their Google+ Photos set to autobackup and also using Gmail.  These are the best types of solutions: they solve a problem in need of solving, and with minimal fanfare.
 
Gmail team brings Google+ photo backups to your inbox, makes for sharing them with friends uber easy.

How to Get the Most Out of Google+

Be yourself.  Be passionate.  Be open.  Share.  Leave great comments.  Make great stuff, whatever it is, photos, memes, thought provoking articles, selfies, geekery, stories about your children, your adventures and misadventures, your day, your home life, your professional life.  Use Social Media however you want to!

Seek out people with similar interests and passions, or people whose interests inspire you, or people who are just great to talk to.  Make it your own.  Talk to the world, and be prepared for the world to talk back.  If no one you know is using Google+, try meeting people who are, because in my experience we're mostly a friendly lot.  Above all else, be authentic.

Did you know Google has made an Official Guide for growing your presence on Google+?  It's called the Google+ Partner Playbook and it's free to download.

My First Viral Post

Every story of social media success begins somewhere.  Mine began with the following post on Google+ (which was also an article on my personal blog): Google+ IS and WILL BE a Huge Success

The article was shared by Mark Traphagen, who has since become a true friend, and from there spread farther and faster than I had ever imagined anything I wrote would.  Nearly two years later, I still stand behind the substance of that post, and I'm glad I saw the potential of Google+ in the early days.  That first spark of social networking connection inspired me to dive deeper into the online realms, and now I get to enjoy the company of thousands of great minds and great souls all around the world.

Personal

I've lived in South Florida my whole life, and it would be hard for me to imagine living anywhere else.  I was born to two wonderful parents who are still together after all these years and into a wonderful and supportive family that stuck together through all the trials we faced.

I'm an absolute technology geek.  If software runs on it, I want to know about it.  I've had many passions in my life, and nearly all of them have involved technology and science, but art, philosophy, and even a mystical streak also help define me.  I can also geek out on stuff like Doctor Who, Sleepy Hollow, and Homeland.  The geekery runs deep within me, but so does the artist and the dreamer.

I'm also an Elder Scrolls addict, 1/16th Ewok, half Vulcan, and three-quarters Irish potato stew.

Moe's Southwest Grill is one of my favorite restaurants. The service is usually outstanding and friendly. The food is fresh and made with quality ingredients. I love the free chips and salsa with every meal. Enter your phone number into their Customer Loyalty Program each time you visit to get a free entree every ninth visit, and receive SMS updates on deals on your cellphone. Join Moe's eWorld for a free cup of queso, and free food on your birthday. Join the Check-In-Club for additional deals for checking in on services like Foursquare. Also, fill out the survey on the back of every receipt for a $2 dollar discount on your purchase. If you love spicy salsas, try the Moe's Hard Rock Sauce but he careful, it packs a punch. And try to the steak, it's some of the best fajita steak I've ever tried.
