A Charming Example of How to Get Fired Through Facebook

Ahh social networking. Sometimes users are in such a hurry to vent through a status update that they don’t stop to remember who’s going to see it. And if you happen to say something negative about someone or something, the situation can quickly turn ugly.

Jetpack’s Social Integration Features

One of the many things we use Jetpack for here on CSS-Tricks is all of its features related to social media integration. For example, Jetpack can automatically share published content to different social media accounts simultaneously, add sharing buttons to your site’s theme, and allow for social login on the comment form. There is even more than that, but let’s dig into these three as we use them. Auto-Sharing Posts I like the idea that everything we published goes out to social media. Many people only follow the site that way, so they should see what we’re writing. We’re specifically into Twitter and Facebook. With Jetpack installed connected to, I can now flip on the setting: Then authenticate the services you want to connect: Now as we publish new articles, there are Publicize controls right there allowing us to send it to the services we want along with a…

Hiring: Community & Social Media Manager

I don’t do this often, but, I may start doing it more because my little project that could… is growing up a bit (not too much and not too fast… maybe…). I’m looking to hire our very first Social Media and Community Manager. It’s a hybrid-role that’s going to be a huge part of our early-stage team! So, outside of the outlined responsibilities you’ll be a huge part of building the overall company as well, delivering results around process, programming, people, and production… pretty much everything (I couldn’t think of another “p” to add here…)! If you love people (and data!) then we’d love to have a chat with you! Learn more here. Can’t wait to hear from you! (Pardon the terrible stock image as the featured image above… it is what it is…). Also… a few final thoughts about the industry that we’re in as well… might be worth…

Bare Midriffs

How does one go about building a working social network and online community? Perhaps you can borrow (or steal) these great ideas from Caterina Fake. Here are some great things that I’ve been chewing on: That’s why I believe every founder of an online community has a responsibility to shape the culture from day one — because the tone you set is the tone you’re gonna keep. You set the tone and the pace and what is acceptable (and not) from Day #1. All of these things come from who you are as a person, so, if you’re a racist then you’re going to most likely attract (and build) a racist social network. It’s very rare these days for there to be direct communication between companies and their user base. In fact, [user communication] is seen as a customer service problem — you know, eating up customer service hours. Most companies actually try to…

SEMrush Review: Complete Digital Marketing Toolkit?

This SEMrush review discusses everything you need to know about the solution- it’s primary features and functionalities, plus pricing and overall usability. And to help you further, I’ll also throw in SEMrush’s weak points. Search engine optimization is not the easiest thing right now. Getting noticed by Google takes a considerable amount of resources, time and persistent efforts That’s why a good rank is always refreshingly satisfying. Breaking through to the first page of the search results alone places you in the category of sites attracting 75% of the organic clicks. And if you’re good enough for the first spot, the result is essentially 33% of the clicks. It almost feels like winning the lottery, right? But, let’s be honest here. Deep down you know that making it to that position is not the end game. Maintaining it is even harder since competition at the highest levels is usually extremely…

Top Free and Affordable Project Management Tools for Copywriters

Most copywriters don’t have the luxury of working on just one project at a time, so they have to be able to juggle multiple assignments at the same time. This is difficult for even the most seasoned writers, but a project management tool can make a huge difference in a copywriter’s organization, time management, and content output. Benefits of project management for copywriters In the shortest of terms, project management software is a tool that streamlines the planning, initiation, execution, completion, and review of all your various tasks and projects. Whereas you’d normally have to keep things like deadlines, client notes, ideas, pitches, and other copywriting mainstays in straight on your own, a project management tool effectively consolidates those processes and data into a single platform. Needless to say, a copywriter has much to grain from selecting a project management tool. But with so many options available, how do you choose…
