"Go where you're celebrated, not tolerated. Don't waste time trying to be significant where you are not appreciated. Flowers stand out in a pigpen, but likely won't last long enough to bloom."
On making little bets, reinventing the mundane, and asking others for help.

So the bottom line is... Facebook advertising doesn't work?
 
This is pure inspired genius. Thank you.

I'm considering trimming Facebook to just friends and family. Professionally I need to do something else too -- the FB tax is just getting to be too much.

What about you?
 
Made any resolutions on how you're going to manage Facebook differently this year?

I have! My biggest one is to post only once a day, and to put $5 behind every other post to get it some kind of reach within my fans. :) The algorithm change has docked us all. :(

I couldn't be happier with my decision to disable my facebook account and I wish I could delete it permanently.

Good words from +Nathan Freitas
 
Just finished this post and I honestly hope it helps anyone struggling to find joy in what they're doing.

Not surprised at all
 
http://beta21.com/case-studies/real-talk-consequences-of-faking-it-on-social-media/

A massive amount of brands and celebrities take part in this "buying" likes, shares and followers business. It's a complete waste - and social networks are cracking down on people taking part in these activities.

Have you ever resorted to this tactic? It's tempting - but eventually such an absolute waste.
