When Facebook’s algorithms predict that a business is well and truly reliant upon Facebook to reach its customers, it simply switches off the business’s ability to reach those customers, so that new updates only go to a small fraction of the company’s followers. Thereafter, a Facebook salesperson gives the business a call and offer to turn the tap back on – for a price. That’s not the surveillance business-model. It’s a much older one: the drug-dealer business-model, where the first taste is free.

Some great footage from the Premiers mission to Shandong. +The Australia China Development Company & and Business SA have a MoU in relation to the strengthening of the South Australia-Shandong relationship particularly through the city of Qingdao. Cue to the last seconds to see the launch of the +Brand South Australia 'Open to Door' campaign we collaborated on that ran during May on 11 Shanghai super screens!

Filler words like "um" and "y'know" make you sound more conversational when talking with friends. Mandarin filler words do the same, too! Read this week's article to see how you can use them as you chat with Chinese friends & colleagues: http://bit.ly/1B28kkb

Are there any filler words that are unique to your country? Share them with me in the comments!

Two great businesses I know fell victim to mobile redirection spamware recently. It's really boring checking your WordPress install for updates and backups but dammit so necessary!
It’s important to keep your WordPress up to date with latest core releases. WordPress is approximately 23% of the Internet and as a result is sometimes the target of malicious viruses and hackers. So keeping on top of backups and updates is pretty important for your sites security. There is nothing worse than finding malware

The Australia Council for the Arts will hold an online session about funding opportunities for organisations in the new grants model for 2015. We will focus on the program that supports 6 Year Funding for Organisations.

Six year funding will be available for arts organisations of significant regional, national or international standing. Organisations must demonstrate artistic achievement and ambition with a compelling six year strategic vision. Funding for successful organisations will commence in 2016.

Our arts projects for organisations program funds a range of activities that deliver benefits to the arts sector and wider public, including national and international audiences. Examples of activities this grant supports include the creation of new work, creative development, touring, festivals, productions, exhibitions, publishing, recording and market development activity.
