If you’re in the tech industry, have a small business, or a start-up, then you’ve probably heard the word “co-working.” If you don’t know what we’re talking about, then let us tell you… Basically, a co-working space is a place for you to work in a shared office environment—meaning multiple people from multiple companies share the same space. Most times there is one large open area where you can have your pick of desks. Often there are separate conference rooms and other private offices available for times when you need more personal space (e.g., client meetings).

Here are the golden nuggets!
1. If you have a good product, let go of fear and let others tell your story
2. Social media is not a campaign, it’s a commitment. We always need to be on.
3. The complete integration of paid, owned and earned media can have a significant impact
4. People engage with personalities, not product features
5. Embrace the platforms your audience uses

We need to talk!! (Famous dreaded words!!) We have had a love affair for many years! I love so many things about you. I love that we know the same people, you remind me not to forget my friend’s birthday, you’re there for all the funny moments and all the sad moments. You are a big part of my life, schmoopie, on both a personal and professional level. I spend more time with you than my own family. (Yikes!!) But, I’ve been noticing some changes in your behavior over the last few months, so I’m staging this blog-o-vention!! I’ve been unhappy with the information that you’ve been “feeding” me for sometime.
When you made changes to my timeline or to my wall or to my messages, I didn’t complain, I was happy about the change, change is good! Right?? (Right!!) So, I have to ask, what the heck is going on with your “News Feed”???? (Sigh…)
It’s time I put my foot down about what you call a “News Feed”! What, in the name of Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, is going on here?? Sheesh!! Why are old (And I mean Ancient!! At least 8 hours…) stories showing up at the top of my News Feed? (Seriously??!! Yes!!) I know that when people comment on a story that is older, your algorithm throws the story at the top of my “News Feed”. For heavens sake!!! When I check my News Feed, I expect to see “News”!! Not a story from 8 hours ago!! That’s what we call, “Old News”!! See the definition of NEWS below as provided by a google search… Notice option #1?? Hello??!!
Yes, I know that I can change the feed to reflect either “Top Stories” or “Most Recent”, however, changing the filter to “Most Recent” doesn’t mean that you get the “Most Recent” news! Yet, I still get news stories from the 2006.
So, my dear, we have to make a change to the way we operate. Let’s keep the “News Feed” the “News Feed” and not the “History Feed”!! There are a lot of options out there for a gal like me. But I’m not ready to give up on you and I don’t want anyone else to give up on you either! Please, Facebook, make my “History Feed” a “News Feed” again!!

When I’m on Pinterest, I’m usually prepared to see lamps made from sea shells and mason jars, the season’s latest make-up trend and some cool home decor. However, there’s a new trend for Pinterest on the horizon… Be prepared to see your favorite wanted criminals in your feed!
I was scrolling through my Twitter news feed the other day when I came across a post by my local police department…
The police department is using Pinterest to highlight their wanted criminals!! Brilliant!
I did a little more digging and found an article in the Chicago Tribune that talks about the progressive move by the Joliet Police Department. The Joliet Police Department regard their Pinterest Board for Wanted Criminals their own most wanted list. They also have boards for missing persons and a board for people they’re trying to identify. Check out all their boards here. While you’re at it, check out our Pinterest Boards!!
Can you think of a new way to start using social media sites?? We’ve got our thinking caps on…

Before the Jaws theme plays us off the stage and before I fall into a blissful slumber, we wanted to post a short blog about the “Rules of Social Media.” Well, really an info graphic about it… Because, well, you know at Socialty, we LOVE, and I mean LOVE, a good info graphic.
<<Pause to watch Adele sing>>
As I post this blog, I’ve been re-reading the info graphic and thinking about the rules listed on the graphic. These are not just “rules,” these are solid business practices that are habit. There are no second thoughts about any of the rules below. Remember, they are not suggestions, they’re Rules to Live by, when we’re still making up the Rules as we go along.
Social Media is a constantly changing beast. What’s your favorite rule blow? If you could add a rule,what would it be? We want to hear from you!!
