[Twitter] It’s #SundayMusing on Monday: We Need Writers
Facebook, Twitter, and Digg are all presenting different challenges to our social media marketing business and the challenges all seem to be happening at once. I received a few emails asking why there was no #SundayMusing post yesterday. As columns go, it was intended to be a very light, easy-going weekly post that allowed me to express less-pressing thoughts about social media while hammering out the hard-hitting news and rants throughout the week. There was nothing light about the last few days and it’s not going to be an easy week, either. Unfortunately, life happens sometimes.

The Brits dominated Twitter over the last 24 hours with over 3.2 So while the mainstream media and brands told one story, Twitter told another and neither of them was the true story of the Brits. Since the Super Bowl went dark, real-time marketing has officially become ‘a thing’ on social media (some would argue we’ve been doing real-time marketing for years, but that’s another blog post). At worst, this results in everyone trying to create amusing ways to hijack any public event going. At best it adds a dose of entertainment to what would otherwise be a fairly drab affair. link].

[Twitter] New Texting Champion is 13 – Sign Email is Going Away
Instead, they are increasingly turning to SMS (or Twitter) and social networks for communication. By Erik Qualman. Brianna Hendrickson won this year’s LG U.S. National Texting Championship. Hendrickson , a 13-year-old from Brooklyn, New York won $50,000 for charity and $50,000 for herself. The fact that she is only 13 and sends an average of 7,000 texts per month is a reflection of the times. And according to Sandberg, only 11% of teens email daily–clearly, a huge generational drop.

Twitter and Facebook offer a way for card issuers to reach customers and tell them about all of the great hidden perks they offer. Using social media to find the best credit card isn’t such a strange idea after all. More people are turning to social networking to connect with businesses, not just friends. Following the businesses you like or are considering via their network accounts makes a lot of sense. Customer Service. When a question is posted on such an account to ignore it would be bad press.

Follow SmallBizTracks on Twitter or Facebook or on Google+. Sales were down and the foot traffic into the warehouse-sized showroom was getting slower. Banner ads hung inside and outside. Sandwich signs along the street pointed the way, but road construction had begun three blocks away and was detouring traffic. A new on-ramp to the freeway was going in and it looked like it would take months. In the early 80′s, the only showroom was THE showroom.
