+Savvy Sexy Social Bad news: I had to revisit this video because I completely forgot to do this (and how to do it). Good news is, I found out that you can still upload a custom thumbnail after it goes live by clicking the time stamp, which takes you to the standalone post with the edit options. Also, do you know about the Featured Video option? I just discovered it as an option on video posts. It pops it up to a bigger preview when someone goes to your list of videos. :)

I've been a fan of Snapchat for a long time now (and use it to chat with my 19-year old little sis all the time!). Here's hoping more marketers take your advice so +MarketingProfs has more of an audience there and I can start playing with it on the biz side more.
Also, I love the stuff that +Mashable does on Snapchat (and totally agree with you on how +Taco Bell absolutely kills on that platform. Some clever stuff has come from them.), as well as @emgarber (Snapchat username) does some really cool and unique stuff. Great video, +Sunny Lenarduzzi. Welcome to the Snapworld.

Influencer strategy done right
There's a lot of power in working with people who are influential in your niche, and +Lee Odden shared this post that puts a lot of them together in one place. 

Totally worth a look, especially if you're considering starting your own strategy.

Are you working on an Influencer strategy for your Content Marketing? Here's really useful advice from Joe Pulizzi, Ann Handley, Mark Schaefer, Sam Fiorella & more on the +Traackr blog: http://buff.ly/1DimrS3 #influencermarketing   #contentmarketing  
Whether you’re orchestrating your influencer marketing and content marketing strategies consciously or implicitly, if you’re doing either, you’re doing both. To convey a message, mobilize buyers, and reach the right people at the right time, content marketers turn to influencers.

StrongBad is BACK
With a new email and new April Fool's tomfoolery. 
I admit, I was always a fan of the Brothers Chaps. The reason I'm sharing here...they make funny side digs at Google+, Apple, and the Internet of Things. It's the best!

I'm still a fan of +Foursquare
Have you really tried the app since its reinvention? Like really took it for a discovery run? If not, you should.

I typically rely on Foursquare for my discovery, and Yelp if I really need to find out the reviews. Yeah, I still Swarm because I like collecting stickers and competing with friends, but Foursquare's discovery and recommendation engine is pretty legit. And now they're building real-world rewards into the system.

I actually really love the Expertise feature, where you can earn more visibility in your local area for types of places or geographic areas that you frequent. (For example, I have expertise in food trucks, because I frequent them more than I care to admit, and leave tips for others.) 

Download it and take it for a run again. Then get back to me on what you think. Really.

Oregon Trail was my JAM! Every homeroom, there'd be a few of us huddled around the black and green screen, waiting to see who would die. +Stephan Hovnanian has dysentery! Oh no! He's a goner for sure.

Give me all your coffee and croissants. I needed a spot that offered wifi and would warm me up during my short stay in Boston all the way from Austin, TX. This spot didn't disappoint in the slightest. The coffee is quality, the croissants are huge, and the staff is really friendly. The atmosphere is pretty open, and though there's a high ceiling and cement floor, the noise isn't too distracting. I highly recommend this spot for anyone staying at the Westin Waterfront that would rather support local than Sbux.

This tiny spot is always worth the wait. I actually recommend trying to get a seat at the counter and watch these masters at work. It's crazy to see how smoothly everyone works seamlessly to keep the food coming. The specialty pancakes never disappoint, the service is always friendly, and the coffee is good. You may have to wait a half hour or so because it doesn't seat many people. The coziness is part of Counter's appeal, though.

Really tasty breakfast tacos for super cheap! Perfect for a Sunday morning because there's a drive-thru and you don't even have to change out of your pajamas. The chips are thick but cheap. Don't let a long line dissuade you. They move quickly. Definitely put this spot on your list if you live on the south side.

Gluttony at its fried, flaky best. This ain't health food, but if you need something greasy and tasty, this is it. I've never had deep fried deviled eggs. They were *almost* too much. Almost. Also, they have a decent selection of local beers to accompany your delicious fried goodness.

This very unassuming spot is worth finding. It's right between Fado and Cedar Room, and the sign isn't super conspicuous. It has a dark, mellow atmosphere inside, but they specialize in Cuban food and rum drinks. The bartenders are all pretty cool and happy to chat a bit if the bar isn't too busy. Haven't had the food yet, but others in the bar were raving. Check this spot for a good cocktail and conversation with friends.

Brunch here. Do it. I'm going to recommend the beef tongue hash. Don't let yourself get weirded out by that. It's not a slab of tongue on a plate. It's a savory mix of falling apart meat and crispy potatoes. Warning: it can be a bit salty. I coupled it with the pecan bread and caramel sauce and it was a perfect combo. The Moscow Mules are tart but satisfying. A great spot for brunch, especially if you can get covered seating outside.

This tiny little spot is the truest version of a mom and pop shop. The owners stop by the tables to check on you, make jokes, and truly care about your experience. I recommend getting a combination of savory first, then sweet. You'll leave full and your tastebuds will be happy. I'll definitely be back. Again, it is small, so expect to be cozy and for it to be a little loud.
