In case you missed it:
The Social Warfare Team is Returning Your Tweet Counts!

That's right-- Twitter killed off the free API that allowed website owners to display how many times their pages have been tweeted, but +Social Warfare has found a workaround!

Twitter Took Away Your Share Counts, Now We're Giving Them Back!
That's right! Tweet counts have returned to Social Warfare!

Back in November, Twitter made the decision to cut off the API endpoints that allowed websites to display how many times their pages have been tweeted. That means a whole lot of social proof was now GONE.

Since that time our team has been working on providing a solution-- and that solution is now available to ALL Social Warfare users!

Who else is doing the happy dance now?

Your site should be a coordinated, intelligently built entity, not a hacked-together code-quilt.

Method to My Madness: Redesign 2016
Thinking BIG about SMALL things...

This is the first year since the inception of dustn.tv that I'm not actually doing a complete redesign of the site. What I've done instead is allowed myself to take a lot of time thinking through the smaller details to create the most beautiful experience yet. 

Click the image below to read the full article!

This meticulous process was inspired by a number of people including:
- +Brian Gardner 
- +Rafal Tomal 
- +Calvin Koepke 
- +Jason Schuller 
- +Medium 
- +David Kutcher

Most people will read this and have their eyes glaze over by the 5th paragraph. People who care about craftsmanship and small details will probably appreciate most of it. Neurotic, OCD designers will have a field day (and maybe even have some feedback). 

Read at your own risk! 

Also, I'd love to know your thoughts on any of the decisions I've made. Perspective is something only gained through the eyes of others.

+Gerry Grant I'm probably more familiar with how +Google+ works than most people (see http://dustn.ws/13HXwWE or any other post in my Google+ category).

What I'm also highly aware of is how images perform over link posts with my typical audience (analytics FTW!). Image posts perform 700% better than link posts (even if the link post has a large image attachment). 

Know your audience. 

And as in Apple user, doesn't look like PicVidShare will work for me.

Must-Have Social Media Skills: How Many Do You Have?

I believe the the most crucial of skills involved in becoming successful on #SocialMedia are that of Relationship Building and Creativity.

Without the ability to build relationships, you will fail at being social.

Without the ability to be creative, you will fail at standing out.

So which of these traits to you find yourself gravitating towards?

Every social media manager should be able to provide data to back up their work. However, there are some other must-have social media skills needed as well.

Introduction

dustn.tv is a place where Social Media and Creativity collide! Because social media without creativity is boooooring!

I hope to reach deep into your creative potential and show you how to make it thrive online through social media. 

A little about me:

A little about what I do:

Social. Web. Strategy. Design. When it comes to social media and web, I help individuals, brands and businesses look more awesome than they already are. I use strategic and creative initiatives that not only work, but make you want to go, "Hell yea!"

That's how I make my living.
