My friend's story about her son's death... Please spread the message that Spice is lethal - far too many young people think this is completely harmless - Spice is synthetic pot and IS DEADLY

Yes -- if you post natively on almost any social platform you WILL get better results... for all kinds of reasons...  here's a story about NPR's experience with Twitter...

Putting a person at the controls increased traffic and engagement by just about every measure. Now the question becomes: Is that boost worth the extra human effort?

Yes, great article. Such a common phenom when I was in high-tech (and still is). 80% pf my time as director of marcom was driven by execs/ceos who were afraid that: 1) the IPO was going to be delayed, 2) the big customer they were trying to land was going to disappear, 3) the VP who who they believed was going to boost sales by 200% was going to take a job with the competition. Whew!
