Facebook will not have a “dislike” button. Instead, they will have this: This Week in Social Media

Happy Friday everyone! A couple of weeks ago my news round-up suggested that a Facebook dislike button could trigger World War III. Instead of adding a dislike button, Facebook is now allowing people to quickly comment on messages with your choice of six emojis. It’s a better idea than a  dislike option in my opinion. […]

A restaurant criticized its customers on social media. In other news, man bites dog.

Happy Friday everyone! This week I learned about a restaurant which criticized a customer after they posted a negative review of their establishment. I have never heard of this and don’t know how it will go over. But it sure is funny!

The State of Social Media in 2014 and Beyond

Happy Friday everyone! What a year it has been, both in the industry and my 4 1/2 year career as a social media strategist. In my opinion 2014 was the year when the general public began to realize that social media is here to stay. The fact that grandparents are furiously poking their grandchildren on Facebook only solidifies social media’s long-term staying power. Indeed I believe […]
