Some very wise words from Arianna Huffington. Boy did her keynote speech at INBOUND13 inspire.
I never use Twitter Autoresponders and here is why. Let’s say you follow someone, your follow generates an auto-response DM message. You read it, like what it says and want to reply to it, but because this person is not following you, you wast 10 seconds of your life thinking of something to write back to them, only to get the error message saying you can only DM people who follow you.
Twitter needs to come up with a solution which prevents the selection of the DM until you are being followed back in my opinion.
In May 2013 Michael A. Stelzner of the Social Media Examiner looked at how companies use social media in his “2013 Social Media Marketing Industry Report.” He polled about 3000 marketers in both the B2C and B2B industries to get their thoughts on this subject. From their responses the TopWebDesignSchool created its Selling Social infographic, highlighting current trends and predicting future ones.
Nice job on the infographic guys!
Here’s a quick tip compliments of Social Media Examiner.
If you still have the old Facebook search tool, and would like to be considered for the souped up Graph Search tool which is slowly rolling out now. Simply type a # hash key into search and hit enter. This will reveal a request invitation button to signal the nice people at Facebook you would like the feature. Give it a little bit more time, then soon you will notice something very different and very powerful about how you can search on Facebook.
Once you have Graph Search enabled your screen should look like the below.
After you have requested an invitation, the next time you enter a hashtag into the search box, you should see the following:
So What Can Graph Search Do?

National Small Business Week is a national recognition event to honor the United States’ top entrepreneurs each year. It’s been fifty years since President Kennedy signed the first “National Small Business Week” proclamation into law, and this year National Small Business Week (NSBW) is taking place June 17th – 21st. Over 50% of Americans own or work for a small business, and these businesses create 2/3 of new jobs in the United States each year. Small businesses were responsible for over 67% of the net new jobs created from mid-2009 to 2011, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Small businesses are a major driver of our economy.
