    [Social Media] Email - the Silent E
    Every indicator I've seen lately indicate that people still use email as a primary method of sharing interesting news, keeping in touch, and notification - not to mention that it's usually the price of entry for belonging to a social network. Feel the love Two weeks ago, eMarketer reported that Social Networkers Still Love Email. In fact as you can see, they love it more than non-social network users. That's good news: social network users' attention is on their inboxes at almost twice the rate of non-connected emailers. That's right. Photo credit: Leo Reynolds.

Some describe the word as bittersweet exile, referring to 15th century poet Cardinal Pietro Bembo’s affections toward exiled Cyprus Queen Catarina Cornaro.

To him, school was like the clink – a penitentiary so void of inspiration his imagination often left the room. His creative spirit needed an outlet, but it was so stifling in there. Kids dream big.

Social Media completely changed this direction again, enabling and empowering individuals to not only self-publish but to collaborate and share.

    [Social Media] LIVESTRONG Will Survive Armstrong
    As someone who has covered LIVESTRONG social media since 2009 , and even fundraised for them , it seems obvious to me that the foundation will survive Lance Armstrong’s public doping scandal. Media pundits who question the foundation’s future have no idea what it’s like to be a part of or interact with this community. You might say I have some skin in this game. The voluntary move to separate Armstrong from LIVESTRONG came almost at the same time as Nike’s decision to pull sponsorship, in effect retaining the integrity of the LIVESTRONG community.

    You only need to look at the leadership positions Nike, Pepsi, Starbucks and Coke are taking in the social space to see major brands that are tracking with the marketplace. To be fair brands are often so overwhelmed by the need to survive, meet their next quarterly projections or turn themselves inside out in the face of social media, that they don’t get time to sit down and articulate how the next year can contribute to what the brand wants to be. Without doing so a brand is likely to slip backwards within a marketplace that is moving so fast. Thanks! Facebook.

There's no question that if you create good content - both on and off of Facebook (let's not forget that Facebook should be only part of your overall social media strategy) - people will naturally want to share it, which means it will end up in the newsfeed eventually.
