[Blog] Paid Posts: My Facebook Status Update is Smarter Than Yours
In February, blog platform Tumblr launched an option for all users to pay $1 to highlight a post. He regularly contributes to Promo & Marketing Wall blog. Guest post by Christopher Wallace. Believing that your posts to Twitter or Facebook are more important than those of your friends may be a sign of egotistical delusion (or perhaps your friends just put up lousy, boring posts). Regardless, Facebook may soon give its users the opportunity to leapfrog their status updates to the top of the pile. It’s Not Unprecedented. Paid Posts (Kind of) Already Exist.

This post ran originally on the Vocus blog. Several years have passed since the personal branding revolution took the Internet by storm. What have we learned? Are brands becoming more personable and have people become, well, more iconic? Probably a little of both.

At the crux of both extremes is the core definition of the general term brand. And yes, there are a ton of definitions. Brands Who Try to Be Like People. Image by Billy Hulbert.
