How do you get your content?

It can be argued that these days people are too busy to sit and read posts and they tend to skim the content more often that not. That is one of of the reasons Ross Johnson suggested in hist rules for writing blog posts to use subheads, and quick paragraphs, so people can skim and get the information quickly.

How do you read blog posts? Social Marketing Insider argues that skimming content is the way to go. What do you think?

Is Reusing Content a Punishable Offense?

Someday, if you haven't already, you will find writing is to be an essential skill (regardless of career path.) No one is exempt from the writen word, regardless if you are a designer, marketer or media buyer. I myself (a designer,) am constantly writing e-mails, composing tweets, shaping social media updates, vomiting out proposals and agonizing over blog posts. If your breathing and earning money then chances are you are also writing.

My Favorite Social Network

What is my favorite social network? I use Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. But which is the best?

I would have to say the most value comes from Linkedin. I have almost 4,000 connections. I have used Linkedin to build networks, and join groups, and generally connect with professionals around the world.

Be sure to connect with me on Linkedin so I can give a recommendation when class is over.

Google + Redesign

Have you checked it out yet - new, cleaner interface, lots of #whitespaces, some very cool Hangout features (you have to check out YouTube and Hangout Extras for some cool effects).

This New York Times article does a good job outlining key changes.

Best of the Best Facebook Timeline + Pinterest

Class. Take a moment and look at some brand pages on Facebook. Who has done a great job on their Timeline? Then I want you to go look at some brand Pinterest pages, and see who has done the best. If you are so inpsired, share an example on the comments of this post of a brand that you feel does a great job. I am really curious to see what you come up with. BTW, have you tried the Timeline? Do you like it? The new Ingenex Digital Facebook timeline is a work in progress. Like our new photo?
