    [Twitter] Holy Facebook Groups, Batman!
    What I first thought would be a great source of spam has turned into the most addictive form of conversation I have experienced online since Twitter in 2007. Boy, did I get it wrong on Facebook Groups. combination of Groups have provided thought-provoking dynamic insights and exposure to other thought leaders, locally, nationally and by industry. From DC’s Tech (started by Justin Thorpe ) and Social Media ( Sally Albright ) groups to this band of misfits called Punk Views on SM, conversations are alive and well! What a relief! It’s been really, really cool.

    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. Websites, let alone tablets and mobile devices, weren’t in use yet. But we had catalogs. Lots of them. And it worked!

    [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.

    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. First dates can be awkward. They make you question a lot of things. How do I look? Will they like me? What should I say? As the saying goes, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Like a first date, you may think that the first visit to your website went great until you realize it’s been more than a week later and you’ve heard nothing back from your potential user.

On one hand, it’s a good question in that the marketer asking it knows dull content is deadly. But it’s a bad question too. Because it’s the wrong question. Your customers aren’t dull.

    If you enjoyed it, be sure to connect with Shonali on Twitter , Facebook , or Google+. Today is India’s 65th Independence Day. It’s a national holiday in that country (as it should be), and despite the official parades, etc., people have probably been partying like it’s 1985 for a few days, definitely since yesterday. While I had to renounce my Indian citizenship some years ago in order to become, officially, an American (India doesn’t currently allow dual citizenship), part of me is always going to feel, if not be, Indian. And it’s such a contradiction!

So have you taken some time to get your priorities in order?

    [Twitter] What is ‘The Way of the Web’
    But as the site has grown from friends and family to thousands of people every month, I’ve been increasingly asked about the name (Although not as much as my Twitter username ). When I started blogging years ago, I had no idea that one day it would become the main public face of my business and career. If you’ve ever tried to name a website, business, book or band, you’ll identify with the problem of coming up with a name for something – until it’s established and familiar, most names just sound odd. And that’s the personal hidden joke within the name.

    [Twitter] Marketers as Movement-Makers
    Please e-mail me at gauravonomics@gmail.com , call me at +91-9999856940, or connect with me on Twitter. Here’s a narrative I am trying to develop: 1. From Moments to Movements. The economics of entertainment have changed in a way that TV shows, video games and film franchises make most of their money not from opening weekends, but from repeat viewings. No Trust, No Relevance, No Logo. In the last year, I have done 30+ workshops with. 1000+ senior client and agency side marketers in half a dozen countries across Asia. Less than 5% of the participants mention a FMCG brand.

    [Twitter] Social Media’s Rise from College Outsider to Campus All Star
    During a 2009 leadership conference, I conducted a session about social media. Memories still swirl in my mind from my audience’s warnings about the inability to control student postings, the abundance of policy questions, and most of all, the deeply seeded fear of how social media’s very existence would disrupt college life.  Fear of the Unknown. Even more troubling for the attendees that day than the unknown elements of social media, were cases such as Murakowski vs. University of Delaware  in which a student was suspended for posting violent & sexually graphic materials.
