See More of What and Who You Like on Facebook

Have you ever wondered why pages you like or maybe even people are just never seen, even on your Recent News on Facebook?

I just found out that Facebook has been holding out on me and I didn’t even know it. It’s probably something I should know since I like to think I know a lot about this tool, but the more I find out, the more I realize I was kind of in the dark.

Community Managers Meetup Hosted at Etsy

The trip to Dumbo, Brooklyn and a cold 20 some degree night was most definitely worth it. I got to visit one of the coolest startup companies around and definitely one of the most innovative both in their workplace atmosphere. It’s clear that Etsy is the real thing. Everything in their workspace is original and/or handcrafted in some way. For those of you who don’t know Etsy, is the world’s most vibrant handmade marketplace. It give artisans selling their one-of-a-kind, original creations access to a huge community of people who steer away from the mass-produced and are drawn to hand-made goods.

Ace Hotel Benefits from Social Media and Branded Content in Short Films

This entry is part of 2 in the series Social Media Case Studies

Apparently the Ace Hotel didn’t pay anything to be featured in 3 short films (“Charley”, “Shave”, and “Lulu at the Ace”), which will be promoted by Killer Films and Social Media site Massify . It simply didn’t charge any fees for the filming to take place on its premises and also gave complete editorial freedom to the filmmakers.

Nutshell Mail: Tool For Coping with Information Overload

nushellmailThanks to reading the post NutshellMail Brings Twitter and Facebook Right to Your Email Box on Steven Rubel’s Lifestream Blog on Posterous, I discovered NutshellMail, a great tool for coping with information and inbox overload.  [See this from CNN on just how overloaded we are these days] Despite how flawed e-mail can be as a means of communication, it’s certainly one that’s been adopted heavily and will probably not be replaced anytime soon. And as social media continues to become a bigger part of our daily lives and businesses, it’s difficult to know what to check first and when. And because social networking sites like Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter send us message updates via e-mail, this just adds to the clutter in your inbox. Are you tempted just to change those e-mail notification settings sometimes and turning everything off? Well maybe you can do just that and just get a synopsis of all your at exactly the times of day that you’d like.
