Advertisements To Make Social Media More Colorful & Thought-Provoking, Moving Well Beyond Political Correctness

SO! What? SOcial.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ (, celebrating the freedom of speech in all of its glory, launched today as the ultimate online destination for people to give their opinion about anything and everything. Starting in the U.S., the new site plans to become a global reference for the pulse of the people, no matter what the subject.

Since the rapid growth of Facebook, many sites have entered the social online space offering different propositions on how to connect with friends and the wider world from photos and videos to tweets and numerous posts about what people are doing or seeing.

Thinkpinion aims to go beyond everything out there now, by providing an often-lively digital forum where people can share what they are thinking and feeling openly – about absolutely anything, whether the topic is politics, environmental issues, health management, animal welfare, people’s rights, businesses, brands, advertising, the latest…

Google + : Workshop Wednesday’s

Heaven's Garden Productions

This week, we’re going to tackle Google plus (aka Google + or G+). My feeling is that G+ is one of the two most underused Social Media platforms out there. (Come by next week to see what I think is the other underused one.)

If you have a GMail account already, signing up for G+ is quite easy. Just be aware, that if you have more than one Gmail account, you need to remember which one you’re signed into when you get ready to sign up for G+. You could of course sign up with all of them if you wish.

So, go to Google + home page.  Near the top left of the page is a large read SIGN IN button. Look at the text to the right of it, and find the linked text “Create an account“. (Even more simple, click the link I just…

Infographic – Maximise Your Impact on Twitter

Seanear1ey's Blog

Love this Infographic from We Are Social on the best times to tweet for increased engagement. Which highlights Sat/Sun as the best days to tweet and 7/8am as the best times to tweet. Surely though 7am on a Sunday would be one of the worst times to tweet, so it’s important to isolate each figure separately.

I was also surprised by the figure of x12 on a request for followers to RT a message. I didn’t think it’d be that high.

Unsurprisingly tweets with 100 chars or less have a +17% engagement, proving once again that less is more.

A Quick Word…


These days, I’ve noticed (along with everyone else), that the internet seems to give people license to say whatever they want without thinking. And I think it’s a epidemic that is spreading to real life. Road rage gives way to internet road rage and back again.

Politics, religion, lifestyle, pro-this, anti-that, etc. etc. etc.

I’d just like to see a little more respect given. You know what mom said: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”

Don’t get me wrong. I think people should be passionate about their beliefs.

If you think that the current president is not doing the job, go vote for another candidate. Let people know why you support your candidate. But do it without ugly name-calling and useless run-downs which turn others off, and are meaningless in the real debate.

If you believe your religion is important and the correct path, go…

SEO Abyss

James McMinn JR

As someone who works in the Internet marketing industry, and more specifically the search engine optimization or SEO industry, my question is how do we ever know what we are doing is right.  With Google making so many changes and making comments about “changes” that are to come without being specific.  It’s almost like our job is turning into a guessing game and there’s nothing we can do about it, because Google is practically the only game in town and as an SEO expert we have to do what they tell us to do, the problem is we never know what they are telling us and if we do it’s usually too late.

The reason these thoughts are on my mind is because on Friday Matt Cutts from Google went on his Google+ page in order to address an issue in Google’s search algorithm.  Apparently they mistakenly classified some…
