I'm not sure what I think on this issue, but I keep hearing this rumble from reputable sources. Facebook makes money on ads, but do advertisers make money from Facebook ads?

Don't be on a site just to say you're on it! Picture +Will Smith from Hitch yelling at Albert: What is the OBJECTIVE?

Carpe Diem!

Finally, an accurate watch. You cannot argue with this logic.

I think I just found a new blog to hate. Click around some and raise your blood pressure or laugh insanely.

This is something I wrote several months ago for a candidate who was looking to make his campaign digitally social. It has more of a bullet points & notes feel to it than my normal writing does, but I like to break out of the mold sometimes.

General Rules of Thumb

The most important thing about any social media is quality writing. I would bet on a good writer who had never touched a computer over any tech savvy person who barely got through Comp I. It’s just a new medium–all the good writing rules (remember your audience. Be interesting. Etc..) still apply.

Talk to people, not at them. It’s a conversation, not a commercial. This is why social media’s buzzwords are words like “engaging” “connecting” “conversation” “relationship” “sharing” and so on.

People are smarter than we give them credit for. One of the myths of SM is that it has to be short, that people won’t read longer statuses or notes. Not true. If it’s written well people will read it.

Ask whoever does your webpage to add “Share” buttons at the end of each webpage. I personally have liked the ‘Add This’ service. This enables anyone to share that webpage to any social network site. It’s easier than running out and finding individual buttons for Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, etc..

Which sites?

Everyone, and that’s only a slight exaggeration, is on Facebook. A page there is necessary.

A lot of tea party activism and networking is on Twitter. I personally do not care for Twitter (140 characters?! Guaranteed to shrink your brain and cause ADD!), but do a lot on it because that’s where the conservatives are (besides FB). With Hootsuite it’s easy to manage both FB & Twitter, so you might as well go with both. But please don’t link your accounts.

When you get to the point that you have commercials made, YouTube is a great place for them. And it’s easy from there to post them to FB & Twitter. If you have a good video editer (one of the many skills I lack, alas.) you can post nicely edited stump speeches and townhall and candidate forum highlights.

Beyond these three, all others are optional. There are other awesome sites—Google+, FourSquare, and Flickr being 3 of my favorites. But I haven’t found anyone on these sites who wasn’t on FB or Twitter. Go for the biggest bang for your buck, because that’s all you’ll have time for. Unless of course you hire Magic Bottle Marketing in which case I highly recommend adding Google+ to your social repertoire!

This was a fascinating article. I particularly liked their goal of transforming raw, boring data into (check out how many active descriptions they came up with for information!) available, relevant, actionable, valuable, interesting, and important.

Now I want to know how to get one of those thermostats.

I thought +Carlos Moreno might be particularly interested.

This magical little share button is definitely my favorite part so far of my +Android Galaxy Nexus! It's not cooperating fully with +HootSuite, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Is anyone else having trouble with +HootSuite not posting to Facebook from the mobile app?

I got an +Android Saturday! Specifically, a Galaxy Nexus from +Samsung Mobile USA. I think I'm in love!

BTW, +Google+ Your Business it would make a huge difference in my usage if I could update this page from my Nexus. Please?
