My Social Stance: I won’t do that!

My Social Stance: I won’t do that!

I get contacted about Social Media jobs a lot. I get contacted about Web Analytics jobs even more. Become a Web Analyst if you're struggling for employment, there are loads of jobs in that. Anyway, the Social Media roles; I tend to find that I'm having to explain how I feel about Social over and over because what each company wants from the [...]

Twitter Chat with Sainsbury’s

Twitter Chat with Sainsbury’s

I'm converted! Grocery shopping is an unnecessary evil of the modern world and I've become increasingly infuriated with Asda's poor fruit and veg quality (mouldy lemons, peppers that looks like a spider has been living inside them, squishy spinach) and I don't have a local Tesco, so I've actually become quite fond of Sainsbury's and this unexpected Twitter exchanged only reaffirmed my new [...]

Social Media Complaints – When should you worry?

Social Media Complaints – When should you worry?

As a Digital Marketer, I dream of the day when something I do goes viral. Though some times things go viral for the wrong reasons and you have a Social Media crisis on your hands - eek! It'll become pretty evident when you need to start worrying about Social Media issues, this post is about when not to worry. You have had one [...]

The Twitter Full Stop / Period – who knew?

The Twitter Full Stop / Period – who knew?

Have you heard about the Twitter full stop or period (dependent on where you live) that can alter who sees your reply tweets? Well if you haven't, you're not alone. I claim to have an interest in Social Media and I only found out about it last week. What am I on about? There appear to be a piece of functionality in Twitter [...]

The Social Salem Media Witch Trials

The Social Salem Media Witch Trials

Well, I'm not going to get many SEO points for that title but let's get going. Recently (November) I visited Salem, MA (Massachusetts) as part of my epic American tour for my 30th birthday (Note to self, I really need to change the photo on this site as that is definitely not 30 year old me on the right there). We probably all [...]

Amy’s Baking Company: Social Media Lessons You Can Learn

Amy’s Baking Company: Social Media Lessons You Can Learn

If you're in to Social Media, you'll have struggled to avoid discovering the Social Media meltdown that was Amy's Baking Company a few weeks ago, but if you're not busying yourself with Social Media, as often as I do, then here's roughly what happened. The online crisis seemed to build after Amy's Baking Company appeared on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare's in America and [...]

Facebook Offers: Available to all (UK)

Facebook Offers: Available to all (UK)

I wrote a few months ago about how Facebook offers were being trialed in the UK, but you needed to have a fixed address and even then it wasn't a certainty that you'd get to to use offers. Well, now Facebook offers is available to all Facebook pages (though you'll need to have a minimum number of likes, I think it's about 400) [...]

Esquire miss the point on Facebook stock valuation

Esquire miss the point on Facebook stock valuation

I read this article on my Lufthansa flight from Singapore to Frankfurt. Esquire was one of the very few magazines available in English, so I had a flick through. Naturally, I gravitated to the article about Facebook stock. I don't claim to know what went on with the IPO really. Were there some technically issues? Was it massively over-valued? Did people just buy [...]

Back on YouTube: Social Media Ranting – How’s your behaviour

Back on YouTube: Social Media Ranting – How’s your behaviour

So, it's been a while since I actually filmed, edited and uploaded a video to YouTube. Honestly, I have not idea how other people do it and what programmes they are using because my process seems so laborious that I'm surprised YouTube is displaying so many additional hours of footage each day. Anyway, without further ado, he's the video I made. It general [...]

RSS app for Facebook Pages: Test

Hi all, As I continue to explore Social Media and the cans and can'ts intricacies of Facebook policy, I'm learning out more and more about apps, amongst other things. I'll be writing more about that in a bit, but for now, I've just installed an RSS app on my blog Facebook page and wanted to test it, hence this post. You can check [...]
