LinkedIn is now ditching polls as it continues to review all its features and discard some non-performers. This comes on top of this week's shuttering of the Products & Services tab in company profiles. Polls never appeared to be that popular, so it's not surprising they're going away.

A new IBM study finds that the percentage of people who last shopped in a retail store fell from 85% in 2012 to 72% 2013. Meanwhile, the percentage of people who led shop online nearly doubled to 27%.

FIR B2B #7 has been posted. We talk about where it makes sense to use  B2C tactics in B2B marketing and speak with guest David Spark about the best and worst uses of video by B2B companies.

Shareaholic reports that Google Plus has second highest engagement metrics of all the major social networks. YouTube is tops. Anyone else find this surprising?

Hey, Shel and Neville:
Thanks for the shout-out for FIR B2B on #748. Regarding your comments about people believing there's no B2B value in Twitter, I want to point out that Allan Schoenberg's CME group has more than 756,000 Twitter followers. CME has turned its Twitter account into a news feed about the commodities industry. Smart thinking and a great example of the versatility of Twitter.

Story
Tagline
Speaker, writer, trainer, social media strategist
Introduction
Writer, speaker and online marketing consultant specializing in social media and the application of personal publishing to brand awareness and business marketing. I'm a veteran technology journalist with more than 25 years of editorial leadership experience. 

My award-winning book, The New Influencerswas published in 2007. It was followed by Secrets of Social Media Marketing (2008), The Joy of Geocaching (2010), Social Marketing to the Business Customer (with Eric Schwartzman, 2011) and Attack of the Customers (with Greg Gianforte, 2013).

I write regularly for BtoB magazine as well as for The CMO Site and others who ask me. In addition, I've maintained my own blog since 2004, focusing on social media and the open enterprise. I also blog about the reinvention of journalism at Newspaper Death Watch.

I do a lot of speaking and training. My clients have run the gamut from Disney, Cisco and Walmart to mom-and-pop companies and individual bloggers. I like to share my passion for the power that social platforms confer upon individuals and to help people understand how to put these tools to work.
Bragging rights
I have four kids, born in 1988, 1992 and 2011 (twins). I'm married to the incredible Dana Gillin. I love to cook, tinker with technology, golf, ski and scuba dive.

Unique Italian dishes but on the pricey side. Can be loud at dinner. Very good for lunch.
