Follow SmallBizTracks on Twitter or Facebook or on Google+. There are many platforms for your business on and off the web. These platforms become conversation stations for your business. Building a business presence used to begin with a shingle, a yellow pages listing, a newspaper ad, and a business card. Build better presence? Try a billboard, a commercial, or sponsor a little league team. Of course, word-of-mouth is always best. Your website is a platform helping you to build a better business presence.

[Twitter] Three Phrase Approach to Meaning Making
Let's look: Belittle it - I've seen people get mad at new tools or practices, even judgmental towards the people who've embraced the change: " I don't see how people can spend time on Twitter talking about nothing." or "Who comes up with these new policies, don't they have anything better to do?". The four most prevalant ways people approach their "I don't understand" response to something new: Belittle it. Make fun of it. Ignore it. Learn it. Make fun of it - Similar to the belittling, but with snarky humor. Ignore it -. well, a closed-mind travels a flat line. Thanks Coach!

[Twitter] Clean the &$#*)@ Off of Your Social Profiles
Call me paranoid, but when the Facebook or Twitter permissions screens pop up, they almost always grant permission to post. Share. There are few things more embarrassing than getting caught with damaging materials on social profiles, particularly by a relative, employer, or competitor. What we posted weeks, months, even years ago can come back to bite us. That’s the nature of social media in many ways – to allow us to expose ourselves. The degree to which we do so, however, is often what gets us in trouble. One exception was Socioclean. Paranoia FTW! Fill in the blank. Share.

In addition to facilitating this process, ShortTask often has questionable tasks like paying for positive product reviews and blog comments, Diggs, Twitter followers , etc. Technology has made many things possible, and is enabling unethical people to pay as little as one quarter cent per word for their writing. The Internet is the great democratizer. It is also the great enslaver of the disadvantaged and the marginalized. One of the culprits is Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (MT).

That might not be e-mail, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. In 1969, Stanley Milgram performed a neat trick. He had 1 to 15 actors stare up at a window of a high office building while he counted how many others stopped to look. He found the more actors he had, the more people would stop and glance up at the window. This experiment was repeated in 2011 with modern tracking technology. The more actors who glanced up, the more passers by would follow. However, when the crowds were thickest and people were faster moving (busier), this effect was significantly reduced.
