    [Blog] Facebook Privacy Gone Awry: Search Engines Indexing Email Addresses from Facebook
    It also would have been nice if the author of that blog post had asked us before claiming that the “only way&# Google could have possibly found pages was by following links in emails. Private email addresses of individuals who have Facebook accounts are getting indexed by the search engines, including Google , Yahoo! , and Microsoft’s Bing.com. There are certain web pages on Facebook, mainly the Facebook Email Opt Out web page, that are getting indexed by the search engines. There is a problem because these web pages contain email addresses that can easily be harvested.

    [Blog] 13 Ways for Bloggers to Make Money with Advertising
    Originally at: Blog Tips at ProBlogger. Recently, I posted my “How bloggers make money MindMap&# on Google+. I’ve had a few people ask for clarification around the Advertising section, and what all the options there mean. Here’s a summary: 1. Ad networks. These are services like AdSense and Chitika but also smaller or more local ones like NuffNang (which operates out of Australia and Asia). They can probably fit in some of the other categories as well, as they use different models to deliver their ads. 2. Cost Per Impression (CMP). Cost Per Acquisition (CPA). Image ads.

Are you seeking out existing entities like West Seattle Blog and others, or are you waiting for them to express interest on their own?

    [Blog] The role of canned responses in social communications
    They’d post blogs about the error of my ways, accuse me of playing favorites and question me directly on my profile page. Crafting canned responses to communicate with customers online does not mean you’re inauthentic. It means you know your audience and you’re prepared. One of the biggest benefits of monitoring any brand across social channels is the information gleaned from the key conversations associated with it. This is why social media is often referred to as a “real-time focus group” and social media audits are so valuable. Do we always make the mark?

Engagement is hard to come by. No matter the platform, brands are competing with every other platform for an iota of time from their target audience, which we all know is so bifurcated these days it’s insane. also know that when it comes to Facebook in particular, there’s always an algorithm change. But community managers do bear some responsibility. And that lies in the content. Today. Be thoughtful.

A couple of weeks ago, I attended TrackMaven’s Spark conference. There were many discussions on using digital tools to market, backed by several brands showing their best practices. Using data to ensure that a marketing program doesn’t simply mimic its competitors’ efforts or general best practices was a central thread.

Two days ago, Facebook announced how they are going to use Facebook as a platform for communication between users and franchises. Facebook is offering people deals from different places they check into (coffee shops, clothing stores, restaurants etc) by checking into Places on Facebook. This is great advertising for consumer communities on Facebook. Brilliant marketing strategy. Sharing and Location Based Services (LBS).

    [Blog] Another Way Compassion Can Cure Writer’s Block
    Whatever the cause, we tend to feel writer’s block as a pressure to produce—we feel the demands of our blog, or our readers, or the expectations of our peers to create, and do it well, all the time. So instead of feeling resentment toward the masses waiting on the other side of our blogs to race through our next post, we can approach our writing from a position of compassion: What can you help your readers achieve today?

    One tweet here, a Facebook update there, a series of blog posts, and a downloaded report later, you might have a sale. In the world of stock investing, there’s something called as “irrational exuberance”—a term coined by Benjamin Graham, author of The Intelligent Investor. He refers to the madness you see on stock markets as people trade mindlessly; it’s not too different from gambling. You don’t trade that way. Well, who’s in the mood to listen, right? Social media is something like that. Although there’s good advice out there, no one is paying attention. You need to dig statistics.

    Years later, when I got into blogging in 1998, it was because the tools let me express my interests and gave me an audience (pitifully small for a long while) for my writing. I woke up thinking about labels this morning. thought about how strange they are, how limiting. And I realized yet again that despite some people’s disdain for the concept of personal branding, we need to be mindful of what others label us. The early days and what sparked me. Before that point, we were mostly forced into geography-centric, work-centric, or family-centric social groups. Customer service?
