Snog, marry or avoid social networking – how social media can help and hinder relationships

When it comes to relationships, does social media help us come together or does it tear us apart? Opinions can be mixed, and sometimes pretty passionate on the topic.

Well anyway, read this guest post to find out some alarming stats, tips for how to find someone to have an affair with (joking. well, kinda.) and best of all, how you can help protect your relationship from Zuckers’ evil plan to make you single.

Social Media: A Complement (not a replacement) to Traditional Marketing Strategies

Nobody is disputing that social media is an important part of your marketing mix. NOBODY. Well, some people probably would – those annoying laggards in denial – but the real point is that I’m not and I know pretty much everything. HOWEVER do not fall into the trap of putting all your marketing eggs in your social media basket. The bunny gets really angry and easter is ruined for everyone. Is that what you want? An eggless Easter? I didn’t think so. What I’m trying to say here is that social media is meant to be a complement to your marketing strategy, not a replacement. But you probably figured that out by the title of this article, so I really just waste five minutes of all our lives typing that ramble out. READ THIS ARTICLE OR YOU WILL RUIN EASTER. The end.

5 Benefits of New #Facebook #Hashtags

Have you joined the Facebook hashtag bandwagon? As with most Facebook changes the reception to this new feature has been mixed – some people love it (and were doing it before it was supported) and others find it plain annoying. Personally I’m not a huge fan, but I get where Zuckers was coming from. I mean it’s just like how Fords and Mazdas and Hyundais all end up looking similar to each other (yes they do!), social networks will also continue stealing each others’ innovations so that one day we’re faced with virtually the same social network across every damn platform. But in the interim, how do you feel about the addition of hashtags to Facebook? Yay or Nay?

Design vs customer experience: why pretty isn’t always practical

Have you hired a designer to create your website? You may have made a HUGE mistake. Designers can be good for some stuff (well, some of them), but most of them are not experts in user experience. The end result being that they design websites with the key objective being that they look pretty and on-brand. This is kinda important, but what is MORE important is that your customers and visitors find your site easy to navigate and know what they are meant to be doing. Sometimes you have to make trade-offs with design to make sure you’re making life easy for your audience. Pretty isn’t always practical. And here’s some rambling, some ranting and some useful examples of when that may be the case. But mostly rambling.
