This week’s Gin and Topics is a little bit different. You have the normal five hilarious videos, but there is a special surprise at the end. I received a video yesterday (after this post was produced) and decided it needed to be included today instead of waiting until next week. Also due credit for some of this week’s video are Rebecca Todd, Lindsay Bell, and Ken [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Andy Crestodina. Sometime during sophomore year in college, I decided to wear red socks. That day, I threw out all of my old socks and bought a dozen pairs of new red ones. Since that day, I’ve only worn one color socks: Red. Once people learn this, they often ask to check my socks when they see me. And I often [&hellip... Read More

Is Social Business a Buzzword or is There More to it?

By: Gini Dietrich | January 17, 2013 |

When I spoke in Holland right after Thanksgiving, a woman in the audience asked me what I think about social business. I told her I thought it was a buzzword the social media geeks use to get more business. I hurt her feelings. Apparently she is creating a business around the idea. Because I hurt her feelings and because she presented a good argument for why organizations [&hellip... Read More

Big news at Facebook yesterday, huh? I’m not going to dissect Graph Search for you. There are a gazillion blog posts already written about it. The best I’ve seen (so far) is one from Christopher Penn titled, “Five Tips for Facebook Graph Search Optimization.” I suggest checking it out because he makes some interesting points about how Facebook now competes with Google (although Google is about [&hellip...

It’s been in the lower 50s here most of the week and it’s pouring rain. Mr. D said to me last night, “Jeez. If it were colder, this would be snow.” Yeah, yeah. Rub it in. Mother Nature hates me. I got cross-country skis for my birthday last year (February) and I’ve only been able to use them three times! I guess we can no longer [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Brad Marley.  Remember when we used to exchange business cards with somebody at a conference, hop on the plane to fly home, file the business card in the Rolodex, then forget about that person? Yeah. Neither do I. Thanks to this crazy digital world we live in, a name on a business card has become a call-to-action that spurs us to [&hellip... Read More

Today’s guest post is by Allen Mireles. We went home to Vermont for the holidays this year. The morning after Christmas, some of the family sat around in my brother’s living room, chatting idly and sipping coffee. I looked at my mom, sitting across from me on the couch next to my brother, absorbed in reading something on her iPad. My mother, a youthful 76, has [&hellip... Read More
