FIDO AND FIFI ON FACEBOOK?!: Yep! Pretty soon your pooch will be posting to his own FB profile. Don't believe it? Check it out below! (Lea el texto para un enlace al video en español!)

PRETTY SOON, FIDO WILL BE POSTING TO HIS FACEBOOK PROFILE!: At first glance we thought this kinda frivolous. But it's actually very cool and is more about your dog's happiness than the fact he will be able to post his favorite places on social networks. The whole idea and technology was invented by Pedigree.

Video in English appears below. Video en español aparece aqui: https://youtu.be/VjWV0yA0BQY

ONE, OTHER OR BOTH?: Many get confused about pages, profiles and groups on Facebook. +Michael Georgiou does a nice job in this post for +Social Media Today on explaining the differences and why maybe you might want both.

FACEBOOK PAGES vs. GROUPS: Nice post by +Michael Georgiou for +Social Media Today entitled "Facebook Page or Group - Which Is Better 4 Your Business" at http://bit.ly/26xwMuA. Lots of small businesses struggle over this because they have a hard time understanding what each does and doesn't do and how that relates to their audience and customers. We're big on pages because of the added benefit of boosted posts and Ads Manager. But a group can be a great way to more intimately reach your audience and funnel traffic to your page, especially if you're in a niche market. Weigh the pros and cons yourself and we'll bet you might end up with a combo.

For me, change is the only constant. And I usually embrace it. #Instagram  did a great job! Follow me +Mike Poynton or visit my profile at http://instagram.com/mikepoynton.
 
CHANGE IS GOOD: We like it! +Instagram's  new interface is slick and makes content stand out! And that's the way it should be. It's my stuff and I want it to look good. But not everyone is so excited about change. Find out the what and the why below.

On Wednesday, Instagram unveiled its new app icon. The new scheme features purple, pink and orange. The new design was revealed on the company’s website.

BEST BE ON YOUR TOES: Folks out there on the internet want attention and they want it now! Find our what the cost of waiting to give it to them is.

"I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!": Maybe not a "Fatal Attraction", but folks who reach out to your brand via social media expect a quick response. Better late than never isn't even good enough these days. Even if your tardy, it usually too late and they've moved on to a competitor who might show they care about them more. Find out why in this post (really an ad) by +Sprout Social entitled "Not Responding on Social Risks 30% of Your Fans." athttp://goo.gl/PTYfXx. Stats don't lie!
