I remember the phone book. (I don’t say this sarcastically) Anytime you needed to find someone, you looked in the phone book. I had a good friend at school but didn’t have his phone number, so I looked it up and found what I thought was his home phone number. I called it up and it turned out to be his father’s office.
Ooops. I was eleven, so I could be forgiven.
Today, I can’t remember the last time I looked inside a phone book, and that’s huge. Even more important, I’m not the only one.
A massive mistake people make, especially sales people trying to navigate their way through the social media and blogging landscape, is to copy/paste whole ‘articles’ onto their own websites. This is a big no-no for several reasons, not the least of which is the impact it can have on your visibility on search engines like Google.
As one of the newest kids on the social media block, Pinterest is growing by leaps and bounds. Once thought to be for women alone, men are jumping on board with the site that lets you ‘pin’ images to virtual cork-boards where friends and followers can find them.

What is Pinterest? Let’s take a look at the official description:
Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.
