[Blog] Twitter Misleads. Bloggers Take the Bait. About that Facebook vs. Twitter Infographic…
The deception stems from a report by Biz Stone at Twitter’s Chirp conference that Twitter has 105 million users. It appears that in the last day or two many of the most popular tech blogs on the internet are taking the bait, including at least one blog that focuses specifically on Facebook , reporting an entirely inaccurate infographic, with absolutely no clarification in the matter. Back in April I shared how Twitter was misleading the media and its users into thinking the numbers it was reporting were comparable to Facebook’s.

It’s no secret that the smaller your budget the more time you’re going to have to give your online marketing to work.

[Blog] Blogosphere Trends + Being Opinionated
This column is written by Kimberly Turner from Regator (a great tool that gathers and organizes the world’s best blog posts). But I report the list, I don’t decide what’s on it (neither does Regator —it just calculates what’s being blogged about most this week). As Darren pointed out , “Expressing opinions on your blog is like adding seasoning to food. Without it, your blog could end up being quite bland and blend into the crowd.” Kain’s “ In Defense of Mel Gibson ” from the same blog. Again, this is a post that is a rebuttal to a post from another blog.

When I write a post that gets a lot of attention, it’s because it resonated with someone who does a similar job as me. We all Have Two Crowds.

And while you may have come to know this blog for covering the cutting edge communications and marketing tools, it may seem odd that this suspect is rather old school. A rather unlikely suspect has been making the rounds lately. That's right. Good old email is making a comeback. But it shouldn't be a total surprise - it's not like I didn't warn you. Every indicator I've seen lately indicate that people still use email as a primary method of sharing interesting news, keeping in touch, and notification - not to mention that it's usually the price of entry for belonging to a social network.

Not every email has to bring in a fortune or a gaggle of new blog readers. One Sunday morning, you sit down at your desk and open up your weekly email message from Grandma. She asks about your week, tells you she loves you and reminds you to call her. You shoot a few words back and that’s the lifespan of that email. Maybe you delete it because you got the gist. Why would you read it again? The next Sunday morning, you sit down at your desk and open up your weekly email message from Grandma. She doesn’t ask about your week or remind you to call her.
