+Ricky Yean  and I are hiring at +Crowdbooster!

More than anything, a company is an excuse to get smart, passionate, and hard-working people together to achieve something extraordinary. We believe firmly in building an infrastructure for greatness - an environment where your work will be leveraged in every way possible and you are constantly challenged but aren't afraid to fail. We want you to help us build that company. We have thousands of paying customers, including some of the largest brands and agencies in the world, and we're looking for founding team members in engineering, design, and hustle.

Let me know if there's anyone I should talk to! Please share with anyone that might be interested! Message me or shoot me an email: david@crowdbooster.com
Crowdbooster has built the best way for businesses to get fast, actionable data about their social media accounts. We're bringing together the best minds to shape the future of communications, and we like to do it while having fun and being goofy. This is possible because our team loves and admires each other's work and character, and we won't refrain from heated debate because the foundation is solid. Join us!

65 years before Jeremy Lin started lighting up Madison Square Garden, the Knicks drafted Wataru "Wat" Misaka in the first round of the 1947 NBA draft, making him the first non-Caucasian player in the NBA. He only played 3 games, scoring 7 career points. The best part though, is the end of the story, which would make any Asian parent proud: Misaka "turned down an offer to play for the Harlem Globetrotters so that he could return to school to earn a degree in engineering."[http://www.nba.com/features/global_misaka_010417.html]

Love that Apple isn't afraid to question traditional thinking - who would think to reverse the direction of scrolling after it's been done the same way for 20 years? Then again, few companies/products have earned the respect/trust/loyalty from its fans/users that Apple has to have them accept such a drastic change. Most people's reaction seems to be "This feels weird, but it makes sense. I'm sure I'll get used to it in a week" rather than "WTF Y U GO UP WHEN I SCROLL DOWN"

Are you sure it's that they are trying to "question traditional thinking" vs assert their intellectual superiority over everyone else?

"I'm Apple. You shall scroll this way. If you don't, you will learn to. Because I'm Apple, and I said so."

Not bad. At points, Bruno sounds as if he is still on the B.o.B. track.

"Social media managers can pinpoint the ROI of such promotions based on increased (albeit artificial) engagement. But is this transaction-based engagement truly where we want to steer the social media marketing industry?"
In our last post, we explored Pinterest's potential for social media marketing and community management efforts. As the network continues to grow, however, some brands are leveraging the social ne...
