[Twitter] It’s a Book: How Give to the Max Day Could Help Kids Read
And if, on Twitter, you follow a lot of people in the nonprofit/social media spheres, I suspect you will see your stream overrun by the #Give2Max hashtag. I love how, when used well, social media can build powerful communities to effect real change and real results. To me, this can be much more impactful when it comes to reaching our end-objectives (which is what we should begin with when we embark on public relations , right?) than, say, focusing on reaching traditional media first, and social second. You need to reach people to get them to do something? And on Nov. And I sure would.

[Twitter] Why a Portfolio of Websites Needs to Have Flexible UI Standards
Share your thoughts below, or let me know what you think on Twitter. As more-and-more brands increase their online presence, they'll be faced with a dilemma: create strict UI standards, or flexible UI guidelines. There are pros and cons associated with either choice but, with the chancing face of the internet, flexible guidelines seem to be the best option. Firstly, let me explain what I mean by UI standards or guidelines. Anytime a online style guide is created, there should be a section for UI and UX guidelines. Creating this type of document is often lead by the creative team.
