Keep Up With Facebook

Of all the recent changes to Facebook this one is my favorite. I know it’s a bit of “old news” but the Keep-up-with box makes me happy. To me it’s one of the best things Facebook has given back to brands after taking so much away. Between Edgerank changes and increasingly stringent guidelines for pages it’s great […]

Twitter Analytics… we’re waiting

I wrote a post for WebProNews, Dear Twitter Analytics… You’re Late,  that was 1/2 rant and 1/2 informational.
