    [Marketing] Would you pay for an adless Facebook?
    We’re all marketers (or critics) – as someone who works in marketing, I like to see what other companies are doing. Targeted marketing – Facebook has a boatload of data on all of us. Each like, share, click or status update gives marketers another data point for them to target on. 'A few weeks back there was an article on a patent application that Mark Zuckerberg had placed. The patent showed mock-ups to create an ad-less version of Facebook for users wishing to pay to remove the ads. The main reason is that we all like the saying, “ If it’s free, it’s for me.”

'Overnight success is a cultural trope that is used in the business world and the artistic world to describe a company or person who is suddenly noted to be successful.

    If your business is scattered in terms of what it offers or pursuing multiple segments of a market, chances are the business doesn’t have its core values defined. 'In reading Good to Great , one of the core messages of the books is that the core values of your business define its greatness or lack thereof. If you don’t know what your core values are, then your business is defined by that lack of awareness and a consequent lack of awareness about what you can be great at. If your business knows its core values, those values inform the culture of the business.
