It’s Facebook question of the week time (clap, clap, clap!). This week I’m giving you a little repeat from a video I did for Radian6. I’m a big fan of theirs so I was ecstatic when they asked me to guest blog for them. And then they changed their minds and asked me to do a video instead. I asked if they were sure. I mean, [&hellip... Read More

I’m a big Angry Birds fan. The first time I saw Mr. D playing it I said, “What the heck is that?” After I spent a few weeks making fun of him, I discovered I was hooked.

Most of you know I spent the early days of my career at Fleishman-Hillard. I loved that job. It was where I learned all about PR, but also where I came out of my shell. When I interviewed for the job, the GM of our office, Gary Kisner, asked me where I saw myself in five years. I remember looking around his office and saying, “In [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is written by John Fitzgerald. The concept of Google+ Circles is not a revolutionary one. Many of us already use digital tools to segment our contacts and the information we share with them, including multiple email addresses, Twitter accounts, and Web sites. We share different content on LinkedIn than we do on Facebook or on Twitter. Google+ makes segmentation easier, but do we need [&hellip... Read More

But it kept [&hellip... Read More
