+Rhonda Doyle- It's crazy to me how many brands still paste something into HootSuite and just fire it off every which way.

Buffer Images Directly to Google+

Here's your cool-thing-of-the-day via +Courtney Seiter on the +Buffer blog: http://bit.ly/PUq6nR

(Still holding out for Google+ personal profiles on Buffer, so I hope Courtney doesn't mind in the meantime that I swiped this image the old-fashioned way.)

+Matt Ballard- If you really wanna kick it into high gear, hook it up to one of your other services with IFTTT. I have Delicious looped in so that every time I save a link and type "share" (I save links a lot, since I do a lot of social research for work), the link automatically gets added to my Buffer queue. The end result is I rarely post stuff directly to Twitter, and all my time spend is on responding/engaging. It works phenomenally.

The State Of Google+

I was on a good run of posting here frequently a while back, and my use just fell off. Sorry, guys :( I'll aim to do better.

I really think this network has value. The value for me has always been that the people I interact with here aren't the people I interact with on Facebook/Twitter/etc. That, I think, is real value. What's the point of following the same people and getting the same content on every network?

The New Seattle

In the wake of Super Bowl 48, anything's possible. Is Seattle going to turn into Boston 2.0 and start picking up championships left and right? Who knows, and that's the point—we're done thinking it's not possible.
