WHICH STREAM SHOULD YOU WADE INTO?: Nice post by +Tara Lifland via +Social Media Today(with INFOGRAPHIC) entitled 5 Reasons Why Every Biz Must Embrace #SocialMedia. See http://bit.ly/1OvvQ0S.

We tell our potential customers when used properly, social media can be a great tool to help your business reach untapped, potential customers and stay connected to current ones. So, rather than asking yourself, “Should I be using Facebook or Pinterest?” the question becomes, “How can Facebook and Pinterest help me achieve my marketing objectives?” 

But they should also remember, not all streams are created equal. An important topic brought up at the end of the post. Be careful which stream you wade into.

WHAT'S THAT SUCKING SOUND?: Could be your website and blog content. We admit, it's been awhile since we've updated ours so get ready for a doozy! And check out this post by Nichole Kelly at +Social Media Explorer entitled Your Content isn’t Going Viral Because it Sucks at http://bit.ly/1GkzCnK. There are some great tips here on how to create content worth sharing. I love the "Holy Smokes!" test. And there's a helpful infographic by +WhoIsHostingThis.com included with even more tips on generating funny, compelling, sharable quality content that will make you stand out in a big fat room full of noise.

BYE-BYE GOOGLE PLUS??: According to +ReadWrite​, "Google+ Is Poised for A Big Breakup". See http://bit.ly/1FO7dpR

It seems G+ is following in the steps of #Facebook and moving toward smaller, more specialized apps. Interesting, seeing as how Facebook copied or was forced to adapt most of G+'s functionality when G+ launched less than 4 years ago on June 28, 2011. Now it appears things have come full circle (weak pun intended), in a manner of speaking. No official announcement by Google+ at this time.

BIG NEWS!: Facebook announced today that it's taking on YouTube and allowing users to embed videos uploaded to Facebook elsewhere. See http://bit.ly/1bxVXFl. Via +ReadWrite

CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in the morning keynote that video will likely be the most common type of content uploaded to Facebook within five years. Facebook is already seeing 65 percent of video views come from mobile devices, making them a priority for the company.

So how does this affect the way you will use Facebook to market your small business? If you're not already using YouTube, things may have just gotten easier for you. It will be interesting to see how things develop.

SOCIAL MEDIA FOR SMALLBIZ!: Great post, by Katherine Halek of Social Times at http://bit.ly/1F5SHd9. I'm a big follower of +Rebekah Radice too so this one caught my eye. It's so important to remind small business owners that they need a strategy and to be organized about it. And they need to select the right channels to engage their audience. Using social media is kind of like tending a garden. You select the right soil. You plant seeds. You water them. They sprout. They sprout and grow. You tend to each plant, giving it the sunlight, fertilizer and TLC it needs to flourish. And eventually each will bear fruit. It's not an overnight process usually.

So how does YOUR garden grow?
