- Fry baby or crybaby? Lots of folks whine about hearing repetitive social media advice. Here's a good reminder that not everyone has heard it all before.
- Fryphone: I was in London during Fashion Week this week, and Burberry, a leading-edge company when it comes to social media, made sure its show was photographed exclusively with the iPhone 5s.
- I can see the fries now: Worried you post too many photos to Facebook? Not possible. Facebook users have posted 250 billion photos so far, with 350 million more going up every day.(Flickr, by comparison, has 8 billion photos total with 3.5 million uploaded daily.)
- Fried for all time: Managing federal records isn't going to be any easier now that those include social media accounts. Corporate, nonprofit and university communicators should get on this issue, too.
- Put it in a paper boat: Now you can embed Google+ posts on your blog or website, and YouTube channels are now integrated with Google+.
- Fries finder: The Book Designer wants to know how searchable are your book's title and subtitle?
- Toute frites: Want to add HTML embed codes to your blog or website? Here's how.
- Out of the frying pan: I'm not the only one going global this week, as Pinterest is hiring its first international staffers. At the same time, NPR announced it's looking to cut staff by 10 percent, mostly through buyouts.
I'll be back at my usual station next week. Thanks for taking a virtual trip with me today, and every Friday.
I've got two smart workshops for communicators this fall: Be an Expert on Working with Experts on October 8, or The Keys to Confident Public Speaking on October 17. Join us and register today!
