I received this notification on Facebook this morning. It does not compute. LinkedIn is for professional networking. Facebook is for friends. Ne’er the twain shall meet. Thanks but no thanks to BranchOut. And bloody typical that the only immediate response options are Like, Comment, Accept. No “Thanks But No Thanks” option to be seen. I’m […]

A bold claim I know. But if this post on the All Facebook blog isn’t the most fatuous piece of Facebook statusness of 2011 then “I just had Shreddies for breakfast. LOL.” All Facebook, and it’s counterpart (competitor?) Inside Facebook, usually provide a valuable early warning and insight service for any developer or marketer that […]

What’s all this about then? These started appearing in spaces usually reserved for Facebook advertising yesterday. Pretty random to say the least. Random in that I can’t see the point.

Well done the Red Bull Formula 1 team for taking first and second places in yesterday’s Japanese Grand Prix. And well done to the Red Bull social media team for reaching 9,000,000 fans on their Facebook page. A good week all round for everyone associated with the brand. Red Bull seems to be doing lots […]

On the occasion of Facebook Places going live in the UK (17th September 2010 for posterity) an ex-colleague and I had the Twitter conversation which is played out below for your entertainment and edification. And the moral of this story? I dunno. Why not suggest one? (Also available on Slideshare).

I presented the EdTwinge case study at a social media conference in Edinburgh last week. It was a reasonably lively affair with plenty of questions from the audience. Not surprisingly several of these questions related to what brands and organisations can and can not do on Facebook. And it struck me, not just at this […]
