It’s been a crazy travel week. Now I’m in Phoenix doing media training with a client. The one really great thing about all this west coast travel is I have a TON of uninterrupted plane time to write. I hope Geoff Livingston can keep up! I probably just jinxed myself and will be way too tired to do any writing on the flight home tonight. This [&hellip... Read More

It’s Facebook question of the week time ! I’m coming to you from LA (again) today, but I recorded the video before I left, which is why you’ll recognize the background. It’s a QR code day, with questions coming from both Deb Evans and Jon Buscall... Read More

This post is written by Molli Megasko. There is a new digital connectivity endeavor that I’m really excited to talk about here. Ticketmaster is going social by creating new features that allow music lovers to see where their friends on Facebook are sitting at concerts.

The 9/11 10 year anniversary is this weekend and, I don’t know about you, but it’s really hard to watch the images of the World Trade Center crumbling over and over and over again. It’s understandable to want to make a big deal about this milestone, but watching the footage puts me right back in the Nebraska cornfields where I was that morning, getting ready for [&hellip...

Am I Important? Finding Balance in Influence Score

Today’s guest post is written by Tammy Kahn Fennell. Social media has given rise to an entire new level of narcissism. We all want to be heard, and to be respected. Twenty years ago I bet you never thought that taking a stroll in the countryside or eating at a restaurant would be worthy of broadcasting out to your friends, family, and business contacts, but here [&hellip...

A Gigantic Hole In the Online World

I didn’t know Trey Pennington, like many of you knew him. Sure, I knew him online and we chatted on Twitter. I also ran into him a couple of times on the speaking circuit.
