    [Blog] Being Authentic and Geeking Out on Social Media
    Also, for the record,  I’ve blogged on this before  but I think everyone “geeks out” about something, so I hold no ill will towards sports nerds or car geeks or whatever else anyone is into. 'Social media has revolutionized how we connect, share, and gather information. Pew Research Center recently noted that  72% of online adults are on some sort of social media. For a geek like me however, it has transformed how I partake in the greater geek community. We post videos, retweet the latest rumors, and record podcasts on everything from movie reviews to computer hardware breakdowns.

With a solid 7 days of experience using Vine, I’m going to go ahead and declare myself a world-leading-ninja-Jedi-guru thinker on the social network (please know that of course I’m kidding). If you’re not familiar with Vine, it is a social media network built around the creation and sharing of 6-second looping videos. Think Twitter, but for videos.

    Bulls… (I’m so passionate about the topic I nearly cursed for the first time on this blog). “But, I don’t want to offend anyone.&#. Those are the most common words when I tell clients that they can express their opinions on social media, even on their business pages. It seems that being neutral on everything is the way of this politically correct world and that social media is no exception. The Middle is False Sincerity. Walking down the middle on a topic is not noble. In most cases, it seems indecisive. Pick one. Be Respectful and Professional. Boring.

One of the questions causing a fair amount of debate around digital marketing circles revolves around whether or not Facebook page “Likes” carry any measurable business value. Early studies into the question focused on equating the value of a Like to dollars and cents, with some whitepapers making somewhat audacious claims about the monetary value of Likes.

    Passion can’t be bought, of course, or sent in the mail or faked in a blog post. '  Contrary to popular belief, marketing doesn’t necessarily need to be a “scalable” operation. In fact, outreach marketing focuses on the “one to one to many” approach where brands reach out to a handful of passionate fans, influencers, etc. who spread word of mouth recommendations for them. Nothing is black and white, especially marketing. However, for the most part, outreach marketing is not a philosophy that encourages at scale operations. Read more here.
