How Perception Became Reality and I had to breakup with Google+.
Here is my breakup letter to Google+, the social media love of my life.

Sometimes life tears us apart from those we love.

I've had this in my pocket for a few months now. 

It was finally time.

I'll always be on Google+. I'll always use this platform to connect with the friends and thought-leaders who continue to call this place home.

I'm just not sure the platform holds the same relevance for newbies it once did.

There is no doubt, from 2014 to 2015, something has changed. 

What is it?

I am a small business owner.

And I realize most small business owners are too busy running a successful firm to learn about blogging and social media.

And many small businesses don’t like the term, Content Marketing, because they don’t understand it.

Content Marketing / Blogging is uncharted territory for them, which translates to spending lots of money on something they know very little about.

All the practices of content marketing are what many small firms and organizations need to grow. But there’s a problem when it comes to the language used and that is what today's post is all about.

And today's post features 3 of the smartest Content Marketers out there, +Ryan Hanley +Laura Click and +Marcus Sheridan ...

Facebook continues to expand its use of user behavior metrics as ranking factors, now for videos. Now if your video gets user actions such as activating sound or expanding to full screen, it may get shown to more people.
