    If you’re in the market for a Windows 8 phone, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is a great one to pick. 'One of the things I find is missing about mobile app stores is the ability to find suggestions from people you know and trust. Sure, an app may have 1,000 reviews, but you don’t know who these people are. For example, I’m more likely to trust a review about a social media app from someone who is a social media professional vs. an average user. This is where AppSocial by Nokia comes in. AppSocial is exclusively for Nokia Lumia users on the Windows 8 platform. Silly, yes.

    [Marketing] The Power of a Question
    Every time we boil our marketing data down to a “what” and leave it at that, we make the same mistake. Tom Webster is a 20-year veteran of opinion, media and marketing research, and the principal author of Twitter Users In America , The Social Habit , The Podcast Consumer Revealed and other widely-cited studies of consumer technology usage. When I was 30, I lived in a largely rent-controlled building in New York City with my (then) girlfriend, who was also my age. The average age of our floor was 58. No one was 58.

    friend of mine, Mack Collier, earlier this month wrote a blog post on whether  marketers should use social media personally before they use it professionally ? I was driving through the Florida Everglades last week when I thought, “How in the hell does someone survive and get around out here in this vast expanse of nothingness?” ”  Which made me immediately draw a relation to the water that surrounds the glades being the internet so to speak, and the wispy reeds of sea grass or whatever the hell it is, being your customers or users of the internet.

Further, they made him feel part of an inhuman process.  He felt rushed by the experience, felt like there was a lack of personalization and their representative didn’t really grasp the intricacies of SEO, social media or even their brand. What’s my point here? Bottom line- Sales people need to know their shit. Especially in the social media space. You better be walking it as well. Caveat Emptor.

    [Marketing] 2012 Daylight Savings
    We decided to use the extra hour to launch the   revised edition of Socialnomics with 12 brand new chapters and modifications to the existing 8 other chapters.    It was nominated for the American Marketing Associations’s Book of the Year and reached #1 in 8 different languages. TODAY: A friendly reminder to roll back your clocks in the U.S. one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 4, 2012.  What are you going to do with that extra hour? Perhaps send out a few more tweets or Facebook that boy you have a crush on?
