You may be thinking the last thing you’d want to do is get on a live video. I get it. Really, I do. There are tons of reasons to not go live. You may not like your appearance. What will you say? What if you stutter or misspeak? What if no one watches? What if you start getting spammed by trolls? What if you think it went great, but the higher-ups don’t like what you did? Fair enough. Those are all completely valid reasons not to go live. For 2016, those excuses worked just fine and held off the inevitable. But guess what? It’s 2017. Time to livestream. Your content is probably pretty good… maybe even great. Your audience and fans may have loved it thus far. But here are some hard facts about why video matters to you: Facebook users are 10x more likely to comment on your livestream […]

If you don’t want to post each manually with their custom caption/message for each platform, you have two ways to kill two platforms with one stone.
There was that one time when I got on-air via Blab to chat about Twitter’s 10K character count with Michael Stelzner of Social Media Examiner… Which was, you know, cool. (Look for me at about 37:45, but the rest of the discussion is awesome, too.)
Today the world woke up to a big change on Twitter: to “favorite” a tweet, there was a heart where a star used to be. The change comes shortly after Facebook announced the addition of alternate reactions to the normalized “Like” (incidentally what the new Twitter heart signifies, leaving “favorite” in our Internet past). What does it all mean? Probably nothing. Maybe. Here are a couple of theories to take or leave: The Internet is full of meanies. If you spend any time online, you see how bold or brazen fellow human beings can be while securely seated behind a keyboard. Spewing hate or words of derision is far easier when the face-to-face is out of the equation. In many ways, the rise of live video streaming feels like an answer to this lack of humanity.

Admirable attempts by fellow adults have been made to teach developing minds about the dangerous side of social media. For our kids, who daily seek approval and attention from anyone, social media is all too tempting of an outlet. And if your child has a smartphone, they’re on social media. If you have or know a child, start teaching them how to use social media: Show kids how and what you share on social. We’re staring and jabbing at our smartphones each day… Yes, our children are watching and know it must surely be an amazing gadget. Use that rapt attention to let them lean in and watch you compose a post or share a photo on Facebook. Let them make suggestions and guide their choices. Strangers are online just as they are in real life. Show your child that the person who just liked your photo on Instagram is someone you’ve never […]
