SOCIAL MEDIA  So, the world has finally discovered Pinterest, one of my favorite sites in the whole world (wide web), and I'm so glad for it. But marketers and agencies take note, this is not just another image bank. For starters, I'd bet it will become a major driver of traffic for many of you in the future, but also a great collaboration tool for others - and who know what else? Pinteresting times, indeed...

SOCIAL MEDIA  As youngster I grew up idolising Shane Warne. To this two-bit spin bowler who batted at eleven and fielded at a very deep deep long on, Warne was sporting deity. The beer drinking, bake bean eating, smoking blonde could do things with a little red ball that would not be out of place in a Harry Potter movie.

SOCIAL MEDIA  I was sent this video by a friend who said that it was a must watch. The fact that I did will all the noise on social flying around is in itself a validation of the old adage that most decisions are influence by the people around us. We all know that our strong ties influence us the most but this guy the Global Brand Experience guy at facebook explains it better than most.

SOCIAL MEDIA  I'm a regular at Future Human events, and a few weeks ago I attended their session 'Social Animals', exploring how (and if) social networks are changing us. Interesting session for a number of reasons, but one key take away for me was around the fragmentation of social media, the idea that many factors are beginning to chip away at Facebook's monopoly leading to smaller communities and networks.

SOCIAL MEDIA  Most Australian politicians, state and federal, now have a presence on Facebook. But are they doing it right? Are they using the medium to its fullest potential to connect with their local communities and maximise their chances of re-election? Sadly not. Most simply use Facebook to broadcast scripted messages and post links to the latest articles they have penned or scored a mention in.

SOCIAL MEDIA  We've all heard loads about all the recent and upcoming changes to Facebook - the new Timeline profile layout, the Ticker, the Open Graph app functionality etc. But what does this mean for Pages? Zuckers has been pretty quiet on this matter, and there's some mixed opinions out there. So is it good for us Page admins, or bad? Will it decrease post impressions, or help with our engagement? It's certainly not an easy question to answer, but here's the closest I could come to a conclusion.

SOCIAL MEDIA  Lately Ive received many questions about social commerce and particularly on how to handle the 'loss' of a brand. First off, your brand was never yours to begin with. You might have been, and hopefully still are, the manager of your brand but you have never owned it 'this is why I shudder when I hear statements such as 'social commerce has changed everything'.

Klout Inc. stated that this meant that there are 100 million voices effectively leveraging the social web to share their opinions, hopes and dreams and shaping the decisions of the billions of people now listening to them. It sounds like a worthy cause or is it the latest useless social media hype?

SOCIAL MEDIA  By now it is quite clear that Google+ has become the most successful social offering that the search engine company ever released. Raking up more than 25 million users in just about 4 weeks does matter! Though this is still less than 5 percent of Facebook's 750 million plus users, it seems that Mark Zuckerberg's brainchild has started to feel the heat.

SOCIAL MEDIA  The practice of deleting negative comments from Facebook and other social media channels has been considered social sacrilege for a long time now. The notion that all thoughts, opinions and feedback should remain on your page for the world to see forever after, regardless of their truth or motive, has been drilled into every social media specialist the world around. Recently, however, my unwavering dedication to this principle has been challenged. I have started to believe that some negative comments deserve to be deleted, and not just the ones with foul language or offensive sentiment. So when is it OK to delete negative comments and even ban their authors? Here is my opinion.
