Who is really on Facebook?

The statistics on who uses Facebook are very valuable to companies.  Specific demographics are what makes Facebook's advertising so great; as companies can target the exact audience that they need.  I find it really interesting to note that 70% of Facebook users are outside of the U.S.  I would have assumed a higher percentage of U.S. users however this statistic is a great thing for Facebook and international advertisers.

Integrating and Promoting Blogs

In promoting my blog, I started by creating a Facebook page and a Google+ page for my blog, using the same title as my blog. I then linked the pages to my blog, and filled out their profiles a bit.

Recently I trimmed my Facebook account from 1900 friends to about 400 friends. I debated closing my Facebook completely, but decided that I like the business functionality of it. This dramatic change has cleaned up my stream. Removed a bunch of noise. And really helped me manage what had become a messy account with too many connections.

Ashley Oleszkowicz Assignment 8:Brand Monitoring

After reading about this week's assignment and what we had to do I was pretty interested because, I have never actually used a tracking website to basically monitor a company. It took me a while to figure out what company or brand I wanted to take my time and focus on, but after sitting and actually thinking long and hard about it I decided on monitoring a company I worked with all through out college for, and that is Mid American Pompon. Many people do not know what pompon is because it is only a northern sport.
