Trump vs. McCain

The tweet above confirms both my visit to the AG* site where this story of dissonance is told as well as my curiosity about such things.

First, let me give credit to the source, Julie Kelly, a political commentator and senior contributor to American Greatness*. Her past work can be found at The Federalist and National Review. She also has been featured in the Wall Street JournalThe HillChicago TribuneForbes, and Genetic Literacy Project. After college graduation, she served as a policy and communications consultant for several Republican candidates and elected officials in suburban Chicago. She also volunteered for her local GOP organization. After staying home for more than 10 years to raise her two daughters, Julie began teaching cooking classes out of her home. She then started writing about food policy, agriculture, and biotechnology, as well as climate change and other scientific issues. She graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 1990 with a degree in communications and minor degrees in political science and journalism. Julie lives in suburban Chicago with her husband, two daughters, and (unfortunately) three dogs. ▶ MORE

Small business owners are not taking advantage of the Internet to increase sales according to In2town. With the research that In2town media recently did, they found that small business owners failed to market their products and services online due to the cost that can be incurred. The public relations company also found that small business owners did not understand how powerful a press release can be and did not understand the impact they can make.

Unfollowing: 10 Reasons You May Be Losing Followers On Twitter

unfollowers on Twitter

Minor fluctuations in the number of Twitter followers you have are normal, but if you have a hard time keeping followers it may be a result of something you’re tweeting.  Here are ten common reasons for losing followers on Twitter:

1.  Inconsistency:  If your twitter description says you’re going to be tweeting about basketball and then you’re constantly tweeting about other topics, you may lose the followers who really just want to hear about basketball.  The occasional unrelated tweet is acceptable, though you generally want to stick to a theme.

2.  Advertising: If you are constantly promoting yourself or your products on twitter you’re sure to deter potential followers.  Tweeting your store inventory isn’t very interesting.  If you are going to tweet about your products or services, do it sparingly and  in an engaging manner.

3.  Retweeter Robot:  If all you do is retweet the tweets of…

Washington State’s Employer Social Media Password Bil

Just passed and awaiting the governor’s signature is Washington State is a statute tackles the social media ownership question by excluding accounts that are “provided by virtue of the employee’s employment relationship with the employer .. [or] online account[s] paid for or supplied by the employer.” Earlier versions of the statute had more specific definitions for what constitutes a social network. One iteration also limited the private right of action. See also : ANY GIVEN WORD

Social Media : Do Not Enter without an EXIT Plan

Social Media : Do Not Enter without an EXIT Plan …  This idea (hence, this post) was prompted by the recent but belated discovery that a connection that I had for over four decades had passed away three years ago without my knowledge.

While I was curious why his social media sites on LINKEDIN and TWITTER were void of updates for some time, little did I realize that his not being alive any longer was the reason.  Logical enough, but how would I have known without notification from someone else?  He had remarried and moved out of state and I had retired about that same time in January 2010.  Hence, while our social media links remained, they became dormant and useless.

Most of us don’t think about this reality.  We also don’t plan for others to either manage, assume control, or erase our social media or Internet footprints after we are gone.

This is of specific concern for individuals, but it rises to a different level for corporations and organizations.  In the case of my friend, his firm was and is still well- and primarily-identified on his social media sites.

Through a mutual friend, I contacted a principal still with the former firm of the deceased to find that the organization was not aware of these residual footprints for their former partner.  The firm has effected the closing of the deceased account, but I am curious how many others are so afflicted with this type of problem?

The moral of the story may be that don’t plan to have a social media ENTRY policy unless you also have an EXIT PLAN, even if that is not prompted by a death, just a change of interests.
