Facebook Page Guidelines have changed (again!). I think you will like these changes. According to Grandma Mary - Social Media Edutainer"Facebook's cover terms have changed! I cleared my cache and checked the http://www.facebook.com/page_guidelines.php just like Hugh Briss with Social Identities said and the "no contact info, no website info, not call to action" rules are gone on the Cover photos for Pages. The only thing remaining is 20% text maximum!"
Some Facebook changes are totally awesome :-)...We think this is one of 'em! What do you think? Liking this one?

As of yesterday, January 1, 2013, in California it is now illegal for an employer or perspective employer to ask for usernames and passwords for social media accounts!
Social media: AB 1844 prohibits employers from requiring or requesting an employee or job applicant to disclose a user name or password for the purpose of accessing personal social media accounts, or to access his or her accounts in the presence of the employer. Employees cannot be discharged, disciplined or retaliated against for failing to comply with such requests.
As I was plugging "My Social Media Pro" into all the search engines today, as I often do to see where we stand, I came across something very interesting buried deep down in page 9 of Google. I came across an Android App called....My Social Media Pro by WDR Industries.
The description got me excited! "Most common social medias are gathered to this application which makes much easier to take care of your social life. This app is must-have for those who are using social media daily!". Heck, that's right up my alley! And the price...$0.99...How can you go wrong with that? So, I purchased it and installed it! After all, it is somewhat of a novelty to have the My Social Media Pro App on a My Social Media Pro Android company phone.
It is kind of a cool little app. It aggregates shortcut icons to a lot of social media sites to one central dashboard. I'm hoping an update or two will add Pinterest, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram and the like....WDR Industries are you listening??? But, all in all, it's cool for 99 cents.
Visual content is everywhere! It's on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube,Pinterest and now, Instagram (to name a few). Some call it photo journalism, some picture marketing- either way, it goes back to the 'ole adage that "Picture speak 1,000 words".
What if that same picture could be worth "1,000 Likes"?
