[Social Media] Microsoft/Yahoo Will Take Google’s Eye Off The Ball – Twitter & Facebook Can Pounce
I’ve long professed that search and social are going to merge and that those big Google dollars will be up for play. An interesting wrinkle has occurred with Bing and now the Microsoft & Yahoo deal. It’s anyone’s guess on how this will play out. This is good for Twitter and Facebook as it takes Google’s attention away from Social Media; which I would argue is still Google’s greatest threat. Why shouldn’t products and services that our social graph has vetted be pushed our way? The Yahoo Way or the Highway? Is it worth it?

Hard To Find Social Media Icons. You want users to “Like” you on Facebook, and follow you on “Twitter,” but your social media icons aren’t clearly visible on your homepage.

[Social Media] They laughed when I said marketing philosophy mattered…
For the past two years I’ve been chiding marketers who ask “What’s the ROI of social media? as one of their top questions. Asking “what’s the ROI of social media first will not lead one along the path to enlightenment but only further into obscurity and irrelevance. The huge opportunity in the marketplace, and I believe that it is HUGE, has NOTHING to do with social media or even technology. Much of the discussion about social media focuses on tools and techniques. Read at your own risk.

Social media employs principles of games as is evident in FourSquare, and of course video games also apply the same principles. The other day I was doing some cold calling a neighborhood and to make it fun I decided to turn it into a game. Each time I went into a business, I challenged myself to improve my presentation and afterwards I scored myself as I walked out. It made the experience more fun, while giving me an element of challenge to focus on. Every activity becomes part of the game and as such you become focused on learning the rules as well as learning how to bend them.
