Social Media for the CEO - An Evening with Eve Mayer Orsburn Social Media for the CEO - An Evening with Eve Mayer Orsburn Having looked at My First Tweet, which didn't have a link, or an @, or a #, and was written in third person, I couldn't help but notice how much things have changed since 2009, and how much better twitter users seem to understand 'the rules' of Twitter. My feed is a traffic jam of useful snippets of information, articles, images, surveys, results, jokes. It's awash with incredible rich content and it's all useful, well kind of. Whilst most of the content has been carefully chosen by the poster the sheer noise level has deafened me. I can't read it all.
Should you moderate your Facebook Page? | The UK Sports Network Posted on22 September 2010. Tags: brands, facebook, social media, technology Since I started my new role, I have spent time looking at how companies are utilising the digital space it has thrown up as many questions as answers. A recurring theme for me has been the amount of interaction a brand has on its own Facebook Page. I have my own views on it as I like to champion interaction and personalisation but this does not necessarily mean I am right (it’s not a black + white topic).

Five reasons not to like Facebook's 'Like' button Five reasons not to like Facebook's 'Like' button If the numbers are any indication, publishers really like Facebook's new Like button. But should they? For obvious reasons, Facebook is attractive to publishers, and it wants to keep it that way. It provides publishers with plenty of tools that they can use to bring Facebook-driven experiences to their websites. The Like button is one of the newest offerings for publishers but there are several reasons publishers may want to think twice about putting it on their pages.
Liverpool FC Statement Liverpool FC today confirmed that Rafael Benitez is to leave the club by mutual consent. Mr Benitez relinquishes his position as team manager after six years and the Board of Directors would like to place on record their grateful thanks for his services and wish him all the best in his future career. The Board has now asked Managing Director Christian Purslow, with the assistance of Club Ambassador Kenny Dalglish, to begin a formal search to identify and assess potential candidates for the managerial position. No timescale has been placed on the process and Liverpool FC will make no further statement until a new manager is appointed. LFC Chairman Martin Broughton said: "Rafa will forever be part of Liverpool folklore after bringing home the Champions League following the epic final in Istanbul but after a disappointing season both parties felt a fresh start would be best for all concerned.''

Social media ROI: The best of British opinion | Blog | Econsulta Social media ROI: The best of British opinion | Blog | Econsulta I recently wrote a post where I revisited a number of social media statistics, which attracted a lot of attention.

The revelation came during a panel discussion at the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting 2010. One of the panel members, Anamitra Banerji, is Twitter's head of product management and monetization.

Nestle PR Anti-Social Fail Whale « FaceBookCreep::Digital Market Nestle PR Anti-Social Fail Whale « FaceBookCreep::Digital Market Nestle haven’t had a good day today.

Home » Engagement, News, Social Media News, Videos Earlier this week we reported how Starbucks hit a new milestone in social media marketing, the first brand to surpass 10 million Facebook fans. A few weeks back I had the opportunity to interview Alexandra Wheeler, Starbucks’ director of digital strategies, on the sidelines of the Social Media Influence conference. She spoke of the profound importance to get buy-in from the top level of the organization (in the case of Starbucks, that comes from founder Howard Schultz) in order to implement not just a successful social media strategy, but a philosophy. There’s a big difference. Starbuck’s Alexandra Wheeler: forget social strategy, think social philosophy
Last Updated Jul 21, 2010 2:22 PM EDT The most telling part of Coca-Cola (KO)'s cancellation of its Dr Pepper Facebook promotion is that the company admitted it signed off on the text of the campaign without knowing what "2 girls one cup" actually means. Coke is an old company and Facebook is a new trend: What happened here is the marketing equivalent of parents trying to show their teenage offspring that they're trendy too, with all the awkwardness that implies.
