Are you growing weary from the inappropriate use of email on Facebook? I’m referring to the friends who email you their latest blog post, affiliate link, or MLM program and/or insist on sending bulk emails – that is, emails addressed to multiple recipients.

Facebook Event Invitations – Unsubscribe Option?

Are you tired of the incessant irrelevant Event invitations on Facebook? I certainly get my fair share on a daily basis. However, when the tables are turned and I’m hosting my own Event… it sure can get tricky. Facebook’s current features don’t make it all that easy to manage larger networks of friends in terms of who to invite. I run a Facebook Event about once every 3-4 weeks. I do my utmost to keep

Travel definitely broadens the mind… and got me thinking about the amazing correlation between the crazy gold fever more than a century ago and the social media frenzy of today.

Social Media Marketing: Battle Of The Sexes?

I’ve noticed quite a stir in cyberspace recently. Whether it’s traditional internet marketers vs. web 2.0 marketers, heart-based vs. numbers-based marketers, or male marketers vs. female marketers – some folks seem polarized in their discussions… and thinking. I don’t really care for rivalrous behaviors. Men and women are different. Period. Both genders are a vital and integral part of everything we do. Nor do I believe in competition: Here?s the thing: I do not believe
