So What *IS* Instagram? So What *IS* Instagram? Things are about to get a whole lot Instagramier around here! Today I will explain what Instagram is for those who still haven’t wrapped their heads around it and a little historical background to help illuminate its popularity. I will be covering Instagram features, usage and network building in depth soon*.
Introduction To Instagram Introduction To Instagram As I am sure you are well aware, Instagram is a very popular mobile platform for sharing photos but it’s not for everyone. This will be the first of several Instagram articles to be published over the next few days and will focus on my observations regarding the impact that it can have on your Empire Avenue profile. Future articles will detail the tools that you can use to measure and maximize the efficiency of your activities on the Instagram network, some photo taking tips and ways for you to integrate Instagram into your current social media behavior and/or strategy to provide extra visual “oomph” to the work that your followers currently value. I will also provide a detailed map of the workflow that I have developed for my own posts. This road map has enabled unprecedented Empire Avenue performance increases in the form of a 1-100 Instagram network score, an 85e bump to my share price and a +1e/share dividend increase all in only seven weeks.
Why Your Google+ Network Score Sucks… on Empire Avenue and why it isn’t helping your Klout score either! Google+ (but more importantly, the API) is still in BETA and will be until their “official” public launch of the service. Initially this was stated to be on July 31st 2012 but this date is quickly approaching with no word on the subject in months. I created my profile on the first day of the limited invite-only period and have played the part of happy Guinea Pig and have amassed a nice little following along the way. For many months I waited patiently for Empire Avenue (EAv) to gain API access … hold on, I’m laughing now that I typed that with a straight face. Why Your Google+ Network Score Sucks…
Expand, Engage, Evaluate Expand, Engage, Evaluate So here we are (finally) at the conclusion of my interview series with the Empire Avenue team. Part 1 focused on the latest network addition to the site, Google+. Part 2 was a mixed bag of questions about everything from Facebook to Pinterest. I’ll start with question 9 just to get it out of the way because it was somewhat off-topic but it popped into my head mid-stream. Questions 10 and 11 are the meat of this article – we get into the “why” and “how” of the greater vision of the site and how that vision is changing. “…we are a startup and we are continuously trying to improve the product to achieve our goals of world domination :)”
#SuperEngager was a hashtag meme started in #SocialEmpire (an actual hashtag) that was coined by Shannon Morgan as a way to recognize or give a virtual “high-five” to those in the group whose actions and/or ideas brought new focus, new attention, or a mind-blowing concept that would stretch the paradigms of online relationship management, relationship building or social good. The Empire Avenue game became much more than a hub for a few of our favorite networks. Sure, buying and selling shares was fun at first, but the real value became apparent once we were enlightened by the presentation. Seeing each network score side by side showed us things that Klout, Peerindex, and the other “influence metrics” out there could not and still don’t. #SuperEngager #SuperEngager
Circle Me! Google+ and Empire Avenue | ROI SUCKS On March 14th I initiated a series of questions, responses, more questions, and even more responses with the Empire Avenue crew. We laughed, we cried. The team over at Empire Avenue (EAv) is just that into it. Circle Me! Google+ and Empire Avenue | ROI SUCKS

Stop Thanking Your Shareholders « Social Currency It’s not politeness that I’m after here so zip it until I’m done. Thank you. The line of thought or ideal that I’m at odds with today is the position of players on Empire Avenue (EAv) who feel that is their duty, almost to the point of moral imperative, to please their shareholders at all costs. Who cares if they sell you, you already spent their money! “Oh but when people sell my shares my price goes down!” Stop Thanking Your Shareholders « Social Currency
The Master Plan: Week 1 « Social Currency The Master Plan: Week 1 « Social Currency I have a great deal that I’d like to discuss but will try to get it all out to you in bite-sized chunks throughout the week. The first order of business is for you to circle Wednesday, 11/23/2011 on your calendar – this marks the end of my “initiation” on Empire Avenue and the removal of the 200 share limit on my purchases (unless you have already bought 300 of my shares with the new “Power Up” feature). If you read my previous post you already know that this will trigger a short event which will end with me linking my social media networks to my EAv account and YOU getting rich!
Disruptor Profile: Empire Avenue – Taking Social Engagement To The Next Level
Yes, yes, I am, once again, trying to break my own record for most commas in a sentence. The only other thing to note is that this post reflects my reinsertion into the Matrix aka my return to Empire Avenue! I have a lot to talk about but in the interest of brevity I’ll hit on a couple of the most popular questions that my friends, followers, and fellow players have had for me since I reentered the market last Thursday afternoon. Why did I come back? This is probably best answered by explaining my reasons for leaving in the first place. Arise My Champion! « Social Currency
