As I went through my morning social media routine (Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Groupon, Google Reader) I noticed that today is my boss', Brian Pasch's, birthday!
Happy Birthday, Boss!
But what I also noticed was a Facebook Gifts notification that I wasn't sure I have seen before:…Continue

In 2011, Justin Timberlake and Specific Media bought the dying music social network MySpace away from News Corp. for just $35 million. I say just $35 million because News Corp. originally invested $580 million to the music site a few years prior to that when the site was still very popular.
Justin started to hype up the new MySpace redesign this past September, but today was the official launch of the full redesign for all…Continue

As an active Google user, my search results are always personalized. Thanks to Google's social search, I find results that fit me as a user:
If Google is taking advantage of the social shares they're receiving in Google+, it should come at no surprise that they would also utilize a user's Gmail…Continue
One of PCG's writers, Mandy Saffer, came into my office and handed me Redbookmagazine.
"Look what they're doing," she said. "Inspiration Boards. But they are basically copying Pinterest."

As much as I love me some Pinterest, I've had difficulty explaining to dealers why keeping their boards to a strict automotive theme sticks out like a sore thumb among the pinned images that are more popular on the site - cupcakes, home decor, and puppies.
But alas - we have Pinterest for men! Named appropriately, "…Continue
Last night the only two half-exciting pieces of the Oscars were J-Lo's near nip-slip and a scrawny Angelina Jolie flashing her right leg at every camera.
Within minutes of Angelina's first exposure of her right leg, a Twitter handle quickly went up appropriately named @AngiesRightLeg. The user now has over 11,000 followers.…Continue
Many times after giving a presentation on content I've been faced with the question, "what's the ROI on blogging?"
I tried to explain an answer by walking through the scattered buying process that most consumers have, but instead started to add a slide to the beginning of my presentation that read, "CONTENT IS NOT ABOUT SALES, IT IS ABOUT BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS."
The result? I still get the ROI question at the end.
I noticed some bloggers that…Continue
In other words, I’m used to having the world at my fingertips, and along with the rest of my generation.
