Facebook’s Lunch Options Put Your Office Salad Bar to Shame

Facebook's Lunch Options Put Your Office Salad Bar to Shame

While you’re in the lunch line deciding on which type of lettuce you want, Facebook employees are deciding if it’s a blueberry kale chip kind of day or a time to ignore calorie counts and go all in on a strawberry cronut with chocolate peanut butter pretzel ice cream. That’s if Korean BBQ, sushi and […]

The Utter Ridiculousness of David Cameron’s Proposed London Riot Social Media Ban

The Utter Ridiculousness of David Cameron's Proposed London Riot Social Media Ban

In a move somewhere on par with rearranging the deck chairs as the Titanic sinks, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has floated the idea of banning people suspected of organizing or participating in the London riots from social media. Since having more police than rioters is an idea that didn’t occur to anyone until four days of disorder and destruction had passed, and it’s easier to blame BlackBerry.

No Business Plan: Google Boots Google+ Brand & Business Profiles

No Business Plan: Google Boots Google+ Brand & Business Profiles

While we’re fairly certain that Google+ will have a better fate than the acquired and abandoned Boutiques.com fashion social network, but it’s obvious that the search giant is still finding its footing when it comes to social media. Case in point: Google recently killed profiles for brands as diverse as Ford and Sesame Street, with no plans for business profiles for a “few months.” {Search Engine Land}

According to a post by Christian Oestlien, whose profile lists him as The Google+ Project Ads Guy (ironic), it never occurred to any of the brilliant minds in the Googleplex that brands, businesses, groups or other organizations that are larger than one person would want to participate.

Mark Zuckerberg Is the Most Followed Person On Google+

Mark Zuckerberg Is the Most Followed Person On Google+

Poor Google. Even on their Facebook killer they can’t escape the dominant social network’s shadow. Google+, the so far, so good attempt from Google to chip away at Facebook’s chokehold on the social networking space, got a pretty warm welcome from Silicon Valley. The worst review we read was that while Google+ is good and just like Facebook in the areas that count, it’s not better than Facebook so beyond the tech set most users probably won’t make the switch. Guess who decided to see if Google+ is doing anything better than Facebook though… that’s right, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg! And now he’s the most followed person on Google+, ahead of Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page.

Lady Gaga, Tech Investor

Lady Gaga, Tech Investor

For someone whose father was worried about them getting a real job, Lady Gaga’s showing dear old dad there’s no cause for concern. Since reportedly going broke for the early portion of her pop star career, Lady Gaga’s taken on the title of Polaroid creative director, unofficial (and unwanted) ice cream muse, and Farmville promoter among other things.

Who’s Leading the Luxe On Facebook?

Who's Leading the Luxe On Facebook?

In spite of the fact that Facebook is the number one site for wealthy Internet denizens in several countries, some luxury brands continue to be holdouts when it comes to getting involved with the largest social media site in the world. For those who have decided to be part of modern marketing, rather than hoping it goes away, who’s getting their social strategy right?

L2, the NYU think tank that tracks social media and online efforts among luxury brands, recently published a Facebook IQ report that attempts to answer that question.

Study Says Facebook is Better Than Twitter For Spreading News

Study Says Facebook is Better Than Twitter For Spreading News

An IT consultant in Pakistan (inadvertently) shared the first piece of information about the raid that led to Osama bin Laden’s death on Twitter, and the first person to announce the event did it through a tweet as well. According to the Project for Excellence in Journalism though, Twitter “barely registers” as a referral source to top news sites, while Facebook can often be “the second or third most important driver of traffic.”
