What Facebook is doing to your brain is kind of shocking - YouTube

This is very interesting to me. I can see how this can apply to people I know are creating specific facebook personas, like Motormouth

This is really well done. I don’t know if it’s correct, but the graphics and narration is fantastic.

Last week, Google offered to buy Path, a private mobile social network for 100 million plus a 25 million dollar earnout over four years. Path, an “anti-social network”, rejected it. This signified the beginning of the rise of the anti-social network.

Very interesting post. It’s the first I’d heard of “Anti-Social Network” and this post is from February 2011! Maybe I’m living under a rock, but it sounds even more ‘right’ now in December 2012. Read Isenberg’s full post here.

Here’s a photo illustration I did for my colleague’s blog post, “The De-Intern-ization of Social Media”.

Funny. On Reddit, there is speculation that the community managers for both these brands actually sit next to each other at the same agency. Sigh. Probably true.

If a short term marketing gimmick is all you’re after, that’s fine (and it’s still going to require investment). But if you are really trying to adapt your business to the demands and pressure that social communication and culture is creating, and ensure that you’re integrating social horizontally as well as vertically, it’s a long-term play – think years, not months – that will require you to commit effort and resources, and embrace the discomfort that comes with change.

If those things don’t interest you, you aren’t ready to be a social business. That’s the uncomfortable truth. Change is a sexy idea, until it costs. But the result of that change is what eventually defines you and the future of your business. The companies investing in their business models will win, every time.

P&G’s Old Spice campaign is a textbook example of what the entire company should be doing. The problem is that the entire company isn’t doing it. Check out Mr. Clean’s Twitter stream, for instance. Oh, right—he doesn’t have one.

Richard Edelman unveiled the 2012 Edelman Trust Barometer. It’s the twelfth year that we’ve conducted the study, which tries to answer the seemingly simple question: “Who do you trust?” One thing is clear from this year’s research: It isn’t your CEO.

Interesting post. I had not seen this kind research before. It’s a great question to ask.

Social media is fun.
Olivier Blanchard (@thebrandbuilder) gave a great talk this morning at General Mills for Mima on what exactly an Online Community Manager “is”. [I’ll link up to the video of the talk when it’s posted.] My tweet is actually his joke. Fun.
