The Friday Five for June 28th.

by mark mclean

friday 5 for June 28 Hey Everyone, just because the kids are out of school and you are thinking more about cocktails on the dock, doesn’t mean you can just postpone the most important ‘read” of the week. Think Mobile, and bring that phone or tablet down to the water so you can check out all the interesting posts I’ve assembled here today.
Whoa, this is an interesting post about internet trends. What immediately is facinating is that people are using Facebook less and Youtube more. http://www.v3im.com/2013/06/7-key-takeaways-from-mary-meekers-internet-trends-report/#axzz2XVOgNgwI

Unless you’ve been pulling a Rip Van Winkle and sleeping for the least 5 years, there has been a significant cultural shift in how consumers absorb content. In fact, if you’ve been sleeping you might be wondering what exactly I mean by content. I would simply describe online content as a type of media that communicates a message to your audience via the web, it can be in the form of text, visuals, audio or video. With brands turning to content publishing, they now can control the flow of information. http://www.steamfeed.com/content-publishing-for-brands-changes-traditional-marketing/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+steamfeedcom+%28SteamFeed%29

Do you “get” Google+? I’m starting to, but it has been a bit of a journey. Here is a great website and post that will hopefully explain it better than I can. Lots of video and links too. http://www.martinshervington.com/search-engine-optimization-seo-using-google-plus/

YouTube is a great way to introduce your company to your market, entertain and interview people in your industry amongst many other uses which are only limited by your imagination. What is great about online video? http://www.jeffbullas.com/2011/01/19/how-to-create-and-promote-your-youtube-video-in-8-simple-steps/

This one is really cool. Create a custom Google map that you can add to your listings showing all the places of interest in the neighbourhood. I’m going to try it out and show you the results. http://goo.gl/maps/FX8nt http://mashable.com/2013/06/28/custom-google-map/
