Facebook is always evolving. As it’s being developed (by hundreds of developers across the world), not every change is publicly announced. Instead, most changes simply abruptly appear on Facebook.
One of the most recent changes that may have gone unnoticed is the newly added “total likes” for posts, now displayed under the…

If imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, there's little doubt that Twitter is smitten with Facebook. Or at the very least, the 140-character service loves aping Mark Zuckerberg's creation.
But in the cut-throat social sharing world, where Facebook literally is the 800… Continue

Technically, it was already pretty "huge" at 100 Million users, and then 150 Million, but to continue growing to the 200 Million mark brings it to a whole new level of enormous.
Instagram, already owned by Facebook (the hugest), is growing at a pace that doesn't seem likely to slow down any… Continue

Over the last few weeks, Facebook has been buzzing as it rolls out new features and updates. Some are aimed at creating a better experience for users, like the updated look of the timeline, while others, such as the identification of which administrator posted on a page are useful for page owners.
I rather enjoy the look of the new timeline. The larger images and grouping of similar items side-by-side do improve the experience from my perspective.

There are many different ways a business can use Facebook Ads, from multiple automated ads to boosting individual posts. But the newest form of post page engagement is by scheduling them in advance.
If you use Facebook pages, you may have noticed that some of your posts that were scheduled seemed to have not gone out in the past few days or display an error. This is most likely due to the recent upgrade Facebook has made to its…

On February 24, 2014 Facebook added a new wrinkle to the process of one Page tagging another Page. Previously, such tags would only appear in the newsfeeds of those who were fans of the tagging page. But with the… Continue

Yet again, we are looking at new changes to the Facebook Newsfeed. This time last year, Facebook showed off a concept redesign and overhaul of its look to users. This time around, however, there won’t be too much of a noticeable difference.
Yet with every change to social networks, especially Facebook, as a digital marketing company or Facebook user,…

If you’ve been above ground at any point during the past week, you probably heard about Facebook’s staggering$19 billion acquisition of private messaging service What’sApp. Last Wednesday, Mark Zuckerburg bought his most expensive Facebook friend - the largest Internet deal in … Continue

It's easy to fall into the "post it now" trap when dealing with customer photos and Facebook. We get a smiling, happy face, and we want the world to see that - but we often forget that those posts can start to pile up if done too frequently.…

I came across this scathing opinion piece on Facebook advertising and I'd like to share it with the community for discussion. I'm admittedly not extremely well versed on Facebook ads, but this video seems to make a clear and concise case for questioning the effectiveness of buying likes through sponsored ads. What do you think?

If you are a Facebook page manager or owner you are probably wondering what “people talking about this” really means as it continuously fluctuates day to day, week to week.
If you do not know where this is located on your page, just look next to the people who have liked the page and a number with the words people talking about this… Continue

There is no way around it, you need a Facebook page. Now, far too many companies and dealerships fail to realize that simply having a Facebook page isn’t in and of itself much of an accomplishment.
After all, there is a tremendous difference between having a… Continue

LinkedIn has been in a strange position for awhile now.
They're trying to be the Facebook of the professional world, but they've been constantly stymied by the fact that Facebook is also trying to be the Facebook of the professional world. Luckily for LinkedIn, they managed to firmly entrench… Continue

There have been and always will be right and wrong ways to go about marketing on Facebook. The only things that change are the ways to go about doing the "right" things. While some would say there are no rules on social media, there are definitely best practices to do and poor practices to avoid.

If you're reading this, you're probably failing at social media image marketing. That's not me being cynical.

About a year ago, J D Rucker published a list of the most influential people in the automotive industry (according to KLOUT).
KLOUT influence isn't the same thing as real world influence. There wasn't anyone named Ford on the list or any CEO's of the automakers or big dealer groups. This was a list of automotive people who were active on social media and could wield influence across… Continue
