[Comments] Blogger Burnout
Why I don''t burnout (much). I don''t chase analytics. I don''t get lured into too many blog comment wars. I don''t worry about the reach of each and every piece of content. blog comment. It''s not just blogs. There''s burnout at every social media turn. Maybe not on the consumption side, but on the creation/publishing side. very long time ago, I wrote a post about the quality versus quantity of brands and posting to social media (it''s a topic that I have tackled may times over the years, actually). Fatigue always sets in. It can happen for the reader. It can be very disturbing.

[Comments] The Size Of The Boat. The Motion Of The Ocean.
Now, before you go jumping all over the comments and telling me that your small boutique firm works with some of the largest brands in the world, let me be clear that I am talking about full-service (or fairly close to it). Does size matter? Get your mind out of the gutter. As one of my main roles at Twist Image , I act as the frontline (along with a great team of people) of assessing new business opportunities. While some agencies may have their opportunity filter down to a science, I'd happily contend that our process has little bit more art sprinkled into it. Is it a perfect world?

You’d also include a strong call to action for subscribers to comment, perhaps even pointing them to a post where you ask readers to introduce themselves. What do you want repeat readers to do?

Earlier, I had made similar comments in a NYT story on online dating in India. I was recently quoted in a CNN story on online dating and online matrimony in India. said that I don’t see a dating site working in India, as Indian women are unlikely to post their profiles to it, given India’s rather conservative social context. Here is the full text of the CNN story: Can India be persuaded to date online? By Catriona Davies for CNN.

[Comments] The Day Gmail Went Down
Let us know in the comments! One of the more memorable events in recent web history has got to be October 31, 2012 - The Day Gmail Went Down (…for 5 Minutes). noticed the massive social media buzz about this catastrophe shortly after everything was resolved – about 10 minutes later. The tweets streaming by in my Twitter feed got me wondering: where and when did the buzz happen? For how long were people talking about the incident after it happened? What were they saying? My research confirmed that Gmail being unavailable was, in fact, the end of the world. Big Gmail fan?
