I am setting my goals for the year today. I am fairly new to my position, so I thought it would be a good time to look for inspiration. What's one goal you have for the new year in your job, and how do you plan to accomplish it?

A nice collection of brands who made and the good & bad things they did before, during, and after Sandy. Now that this has (mostly) settled down, which brands do you think screwed up, and which ones shined?

I've been pruning & cleaning my social media presence lately. In the past couple months, I've deleted 200 Facebook friends, unliked 50 Facebook pages, unfollowed about 25 people on Twitter, as well as deleted my Pinterest & Tumblr account. I've also noticed that (inadvertently) I'm tweeting less than I used to...

Do you ever go through "social media cleaning?" Have you deleted any of your profiles in the past year?

New staff, new content, right? I agree, but people revamp and change when it's that bad. It'll be fun to revisit late though.

"Klout may end up being a (social) canard, another example of online users chasing unicorns and rainbows."

A good overview if you aren't 100% fluent in Klout, and a few interesting (potential) jabs at the company. The author claims anyone with 40 hours and a laptop can drastically improve their score, which while true, kind of diminishes the point. 

This raises my question. After their latest algorithm change (last week) do you still take Klout seriously? Why or why not?

I'm making an effort again to be more active on Google+. Maybe it will stick this time.

It seems now the only time I post on Google+ is when I remember that it exists.

All this talk of today's Google doodle made me want to ask - what's your favorite doodle ever?

Left after being yelled at by a sales manager. I walked into this dealership ready to buy a specific car that I had found online. The salesman, Jeff, was easy to work with and polite. I would have been a very easy sale for him. I took it for a test drive and was ready to sign on the dotted line with no hassle. After collecting my signature and all my information and agreeing on a price and financing, I thought I was in the clear. However, as soon as they ran my credit, I was informed that the car had JUST been sold. This is where things went downhill. First of all, why did they need to run my credit if they were just going to inform me that the car had been sold? Why not tell me that the car was about to be sold, and let me look around at other vehicles or wait to see if the other buyer they had backed out? I started to leave the dealership, but then I walked back in to see if I could collect the form that I had filled out that had my social security number, address, phone, income, and the contact information for my employer as well as my mother, who I put as my emergency contact. I had approached Jeff as he was right inside his manager's office, and upon hearing my request, the manager immediately fired back that he couldn't do this with a very rude tone. Upon hearing his tone, I was a little more stern with my request, but after only getting about five words out, the sales manager, Ronaldo, started yelling at me. We went back and forth for a few minutes yelling in front of everyone else at the dealership until I stormed out. I have been a Honda owner before, and although I am still in the market for another Honda, I will absolutely never step foot in this dealership again if that's how sales managers treat prospective customers. I hadn't even met this guy before and he immediately was rude to me. I understand if they needed to keep the form, but he could have explained that to me in a calm, rational manner instead of yelling at me.
