Yelp Adds Health Inspection Data for Restaurants

By |2018-07-28T10:32:27+00:00July 28th, 2018|Social Media, The Blog|0 Comments

I am no fan of Yelp and have been advising the public for years on how to deal with Yelp without having to actually deal with them. The strategy has been working for me and many others businesses that I consult with. This new strategy by Yelp just reinforces the fact that their business model is not working and they have to up their game. I am not sure how this one will work out, only time will tell. I personally think Yelp should be held liable for LIBEL and SLANDER if the information on the Yelp site is not updated timely.

Twitter shares drop 14 percent after reporting declining monthly active users 

By |2018-07-28T10:33:52+00:00July 28th, 2018|Social Media|0 Comments

Twitter is being accused of shadow banning conservative accounts and the Federal Government is looking into this illegal activity. President Trump himself tweeted about looking into and stopping this illegal activity, and that can't be good. There are also reports throughout social media that Facebook and Twitter are being cut off from any government funding or government contracts they may have and this is accounting for the large losses.

Yelp faces a “dilemma” again with one-star Fake Starbucks reviews.

You don't have to even visit the location of a business to write a review and that's where the Yelp business model fails. Unlike OpenTable, where you can only leave a review on a restaurant AFTER the restaurant checks you in, Yelp has no such functionality.

Facebook Deleted Drudge Report Page – YouTube

By |2017-05-31T19:52:06+00:00March 10th, 2017|Facebook, Social Media|0 Comments

We've all been warned multiple times about relying on Facebook to get your content out but this video by Mark Dice sums it up nicely, especially the Boost button which can get VERY EXPENSIVE just to reach your fans.

You Can’t Trust the Media. Do Your Own Fact Checking.

By |2016-10-09T23:56:10+00:00October 9th, 2016|Social Media|0 Comments

I just can't. It was pretty obvious who won that second presidential debate but you wouldn't know it by what the mainstream media was reporting. As a marketer I am always fascinated with how the mainstream media all have the same talking points. Except for Drudge...

Facebook Wants to Help Sell Every Ad on the Web – WSJ

By |2016-05-28T10:40:05+00:00May 28th, 2016|Facebook, Social Media|0 Comments

There is no escaping Facebook’s advertising reach. The social network has announced that it will now be foisting ads on to every single person who uses third-party sites that are signed up to its advertising scheme, regardless of whether the user has a Facebook account or not.

Facebook news selection is in hands of editors not algorithms, documents show | The Guardian

By |2016-10-06T21:30:29+00:00May 12th, 2016|Facebook, Social Media|0 Comments

Exclusive: Leaked internal guidelines show human intervention at almost every stage of its news operation, akin to a traditional media organization. The guidelines are sure to bolster arguments that Facebook has made discriminatory editorial decisions against rightwing media. Conservatives would label the majority of Facebook’s primary sources as liberal.

New Social Network, TSU, being blocked by Facebook

By |2015-11-08T20:30:08+00:00November 8th, 2015|Social Media|1 Comment

Have you checked out TSU yet? TSU is a social network very similar to Facebook that has been around for about a year. The big difference between the two social networks is that TSU will be sharing advertising earnings with you, the user. This should encourage people to post good content and they may even get paid for it...

Talking about Ghetto Social Media Communities. Facebook, Twitter & Instagram et all

By |2015-11-29T09:19:39+00:00October 11th, 2015|Social Media, Technology|1 Comment

Matt Drudge, who is the operator of the DrudgeReport, one of the TOP news websites on the planet, reminded me of how the internet was about 20 years ago. He steps out to talk to Alex Jones of InfoWars this past week and it’s one of the most profound interviews I have heard in quite a while. Step inside the blog to listen to two internet giants talk about the decline of social media into "Ghetto" platforms that are either all owned by the same company or financed by the same banking system...

Late Night Blogging and Hanging with the Scopers! 

By |2015-11-15T19:55:00+00:00June 17th, 2015|Social Media, Technology|2 Comments

People who are active on Periscope are called "Scopers" and pretty much anything goes when it comes to "Scoping"... including porn. I do believe I even watched part of Jurassic World that someone was streaming in real time. Please NSA, I only watched 5 minutes!!

Look Up! A Little Something About Social Media Addiction

This past weekend was about the 6th straight weekend I have practically disappeared from "The Net" despite having the latest and greatest gadget in my back pocket. Disconnecting... something I have struggled within in the distant past but have learned how to master
