It is Pho Time! Come with us to 4250 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, CA 92604 for lunch
I saw this come up in my Youtube feed during Affiliate Summit and put it on my “watch later” list, but now I see it on the board at #SMMOC – curaytor.com I guess I have to check it out now.
Do you use multiple personas? When you use a different network, do you act and behave differently from the other networks? Like Linkedin, vs Facebook vs Twitter.
I do, I think it is essential to be mindful of the context in which you’re posting, and the context is the network and time. Perhaps it isn’t a different persona or character as much as a different tone.
Difference between sponsored and promoted – sponsored stories are more like ads, you do it from the ad management system, you write them with an advertising mindset. For promoted stories, it is something you post on the wall, *then* pay to have it promoted around.
Facebook reach has changed. Have you noticed? Facebook virality and reach isn’t what is used to be.
What makes a networking event a good event? — It’s not just about passing cards.
You need to engage, be memorable and be willing to put yourself out there first before someone comes to you. Networking events are a lot about what you put into them. But certainly passing cards and asking the classic boring “what do you do question” is not what networking events are all about.
Megan gave us the down low on New Media Expo (NMX) she’s the podcaster for the event. The event was a success and had some big names and cool awards and stuff.
John Chow on the other hand had some less than stellar commentary for NMX and I’d tend to agree with him. NMX seems to be flailing about in their focus. They were Blogworld before, and they attach themselves to bigger events and try to piggyback. I’m not interested in NMX because of the line up of speakers I’ve seen in the past, I just don’t consider some of those people leaders or speaker material.
RSS patent lawsuit? — Apparently someone is claiming ownership to the patent of RSS.
Dropbox seems to have deleted files for one of our members, Stacey. I don’t think there was resolution for that problem. Carolyn also had this problem but she was able to recover.
To protect your files, you need to have a backup offline. Backing up to the cloud is not backing up offline, especially with services like dropbox that rely on your local copy and synchronizes. If you delete your local copy it also deletes your backed up copy.
To really back up your system, you should use Carbonite and or CrashPlan Pro. Crashplan pro lets you backup to a local drive and to a drive that could be at an alternate location.
Most people use the free version only for LinkedIn. @aturningpoint recommends that you find your targets via groups instead of paying for the premium option. Seems like the premium option is better for recruiters or very active super connectors.
Who’s using Linkedin?
Linkedin is growing and there is a lot of activity going on in there. You may be missing out if you aren’t using it. It’s good to connect with peers and potential business or employers, even employees.
Checking out the whiteboard. — Looks like the early morning covered Prezi (presentation software online). I highly recommend Prezi, but don’t overdo it.
Another quick tidbit on the board – Google + has over 54 Million Active daily Checkins

Retargeting means that when you visit a website, they can leave a cookie that tells advertising networks to show you specific ads based on your web surfing history and or your login.
Forget about the lawsuit. @GaryMay says to be weary of the retargeting of the new mobile advertising platform with Facebook.
John Chow finds that the Facebook lawsuit is real. If you are part of the lawsuit, you’ll get about .00
