+Kittie Walker through an online writing course we both took with Chris Brogan. Basically she came from nowhere in my world, to everywhere I was. I just had to open my eyes and look for her. The image in this profile represents her well. She thinks about stuff. A lot. So whenever she says something, shares a post, or writes something, I do my best to read it. I trust what she has to say, because I trust her motives. They are always great insights about things bigger than the facts.

When the boss asked if you had a "MySpaceBook website portal social network thingie", you smiled and said "Of course!" When they mentioned Google+ you nodded, "I'm aware." You showed them how to send a text message and became an instant 'guru'. But when their 11 year old asked you what "WTF" meant, and you replied "We're The Future", your fate was sealed.
Congratulations. You've done it. You've been promoted to Social Media Marketing Director. You're going to need to circle +Mark Traphagen

+Ronnie Bincer appears to be a man on a mission. That mission seems to be to help everyone on the planet learn how to use Google Plus. Ronnie would love to see all of carbon based Earthlings enjoying the benefits of using Google Hangout to communicate with the people they care about. Whether that's customers, family, or friends makes no difference to Ronnie. And he's having a good time doing it.

The first day I saw a Google Interactive Post, I really didn't know what it was. I read the story, toyed around with it for a bit. But I didn't get it the way that I do now. And neither did some of my friends.
So I Created A Post With Their ProductMind you, it was for example only. It was into a very private group in Google+. Only 25 users in fact. I posted a link to a book that one of it's members had written. Within two days the member had four more sales, and that was from about 12 active members. The conversion rate was high. And that wasn't even my goal. I was just using it for an example of what an Interactive Post looked like.

I'm not really sure where I first saw +David Kutcher and +Confluent Forms LLC work. I just remember thinking that they were going to make something happen. Not because the stuff was all that technical. It just had a look of professionalism about it that spoke volumes about their approach.

This post is personal and I thought about it several days before writing it. This may be one you want to skip, or not.
It is about life and the age old advice: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”
We just had a most exhilarating week at Blog World, NMX, and the Computer Electronics Show, CES. Many people wanted to meet us, mostly because we are Chris Brogan’s parents.
We introduce ourselves as Steve and Diane Brogan. We never lead with “we are Chris Brogan’s parents.” Folks we met told us a) what a nice guy Chris is. b) how much Chris has helped them. c) how proud we must be of Chris.

It's A Thin Line, Between Like and Like.
But then you are mentioned in the group by Chris. All of a sudden you are the main subject of a group of people that 'like' you. You began to feel more comfortable, but still have questions. Questions like: “If they 'like' you, why don't they 'friend' you?” Are you too late to the party? Has everything already been discussed? Everyone seems to be rocking along and you didn't even get a chance to see the guy drawing the circles on the board! Regret is slowly being replaced by resignation. The resignation that you are going to have to make an effort to figure out what you bought. Spending time in the group might help, so you log in to Facebook and visit the group.

That's Not What I'm Saying
If you think that I'm suggesting that FourSquare can save your business, your missing the point. But, on the other hand....I am. With the right specials and call to actions, your business could be the most popular venue in your city. Everybody who is playing would be scrambling to become your mayor. And it would cost you a lot less than regular advertising.
