So is the technology […]
Facebook has redesigned the news feed (again!) and officially launched a ticker in the right-hand side of the screen. Users have been seeing both of these changes in beta test versions in recent weeks, but today they go live across the site.

Since we’re just about to approach the height of the reputation management craze I figure now is an excellent time to talk about what happens when it doesn’t matter again. Or will it? Recently, I blogged about my stay at The Union Bluff hotel in York Beach, Maine which was somewhat sub par. This particular stay made me think, though. […]
Automotive Marketing Bootcamp Round Tables Ready to Rock People are beginning to make their way in. The look of “deer in the headlights” is prevalent among the newcomers. For a few there will be some refresh, but for many this will be the wake up call they could never have anticipated!
You’re Missing The Buyer! Facebook is an exciting medium. There are amazing success stories and equally amazing monumental failures. Everyone seems to know that they need to be “on Facebook,” but very few people seem to know why other than to say that it’s “where your consumers are” or “you’re missing out on free advertising” or “its the most exciting […]
