Social Media Look Ahead for 2014

What are the social media trends we should be keeping an eye on during the coming year? I recently appeared on Fox 2 TV with Angela Hutti to provide my social media look ahead for 2014. We discussed Google Plus, Snapchat and Twitter. The discussion on Twitter at the end had to be cut short […]

Social Media Year in Review – 2013

I recently joined Angela Hutti on Fox 2 TV to discuss 2013′s social media trends. Here’s what I saw when I reflected on the year. MORE: Mobile – More people are living their entire lives on their mobile devices. And they’re comfortable doing so. Ads – Facebook rolled out ads in your newsfeed, and Instagram […]

The Trick to Social Media Success?

When we all get our neural implants installed, thereby relegating Google Glass to the trash heap (nevermind our long-deceased iPhones), the key to our success will not be mastering the technology. Nothing will be more determining and necessary than depositing the right thoughts into the device. Social media is no different. Don’t master the bat; […]

Unfriending People On Facebook

Birth of a Meme – Why Did The Harlem Shake Take Off?

In a scant eight days, the Harlem Shake went from a song that was released in August 2012 to an crowdsourced international YouTube phenomenon.

On the other side, there's full, head-on engagement and all of the battles and criticisms that go along with that. For […]

My Appearance on “The Moffett Message” with Sean Moffett

Two things about this video: 1. Thank you Sean for having me on your show. It was my honor, and I think we had a great conversation. 2. I really apologize for my audio quality. I always just use the internal mic in my Macbook Pro, and wow it sounds really crappy in this video. […]

Honest Mistake? Or Capitalizing on Tragedy and Twitter Trending Topics?

Was this just an honest mistake? A plucky young intern that just didn’t know what they were doing? Or was this an attempt to make news, to capitalize on tragedy and the resultant Twitter Trending Topic? You be the judge. I don’t even know what to think anymore. It’s exceedingly hard to imagine anyone would […]
