Miss you All! Happy Thanksgiving! TOTALLY doing this tonight. MAY steal it for a FB post as well.

@yvettepistorio ahhh, yes, but what if that face wants to remain faceless?

@Word Ninja If I had a corrosion issue I'd be all over the web looking for pics, seeing who could solve what looked like "my" issue.
I have the interesting perspective that I am a photographer, but, I also develop New Business for our studio through referrals of companies who are higher up on a bride's shopping list.
For venues especially, I'll oversee the creative on (free) samples we provide to them to help THEM sell (think VISUAL ONLY content marketing) and you'd be amazed how many times I've had to talk them into pictures of PEOPLE being included.
Showcasing the emotion you WANT your clients to feel when they work with you always wins. A packed dance floor screams, "You will have a blast at your own wedding!" A bride biting her lip as a tear falls down her face during her ceremony on that venue's patio, golf course, etc., or better, a bride wiping the tears of the GROOM after he sees her for the first time, are winners each and every time at making the bride feel like she belongs there.
And they show us off nicely as well :-)
@biggreenpen Exactly. And now I'm on my way to buy a tall salted-carmel mocha. DARN It!
@dbvickery Hey Brian! While I personally think that throwing fall leaves around anything makes it vastly more comforting, I might direct you towards images that evoke a feeling of what you want your clients to feel when they work with you or after they start using what you have to sell them. .
For instance,if your technology promotes, say, workplace harmony, then why not pics of a corporate picnic or company-sponsored apple-pie picking contest.
B2B or B2C- people are still people and react strongly to emotional imagery.
@yvettepistorio @LSSocialEngage humility, lack of ego, patience, understanding, rarer and rarer indeed.

@yvettepistorio @Caroline Talkwalker and we are so glad you are here to pass on the good stuff!
@ginidietrich @3HatsComm all right, so I know, given that I am personally found nowhere in social media with the exception of a nearly abandoned FB page, that I am a total feminist, that I live for a color-blind world, that it is surprising that I even HAVE an opinion on this.
But truly, I'd have a real problem being told by an employer what I could and could NOT say on my own FB site. It kind of makes me say, "ick."
Obviously if I am in charge of social media FOR the company, then company-based tweets and posts should support the brand. This is why it's a JOB and not hanging out with friends.
But say I work for a Catholic something (church, charity, organization) am I not allowed to voice my pro-choice belief on my FB page? Should I not acknowledge my gay friends who were married over the weekend? Should I show less of my private self in public because my EMPLOYER won't like it?
And what if it were one of Dirkinson's employees who was on FB, telling their friends how they felt threatened by their racist boss? Wrong?

@ginidietrich @sherrickmark ohhhh, yesssssss! In the pull-your-hair-out kind of way. I ask you, HOW is it productive, in the course of a work day, at a work place in a non-religious/non-political place of employment, to discuss such things? In the middle of an office?
@bdorman264 @Howie Goldfarb If your alias is an alien, then yes.
@ginidietrich @RobBiesenbach DARN it, I totally would have used "comprised."
@briantudor @ClayMorgan "too many people use their name and face on a Twitter account and treat it like their own inner monologue" I totally agree. Facebook is NOT your diary people!
@RobBiesenbach @briantudor Hey Rob! This is fast becoming a favorite quote! :-)
Sorry this is late in coming; I was unplugged ALL of last week! Welcome! Out on your own; you are so so so brave! Have you blogged on that?

@Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay Truly thought that was a deer!
See, you CAN network, lol! Getting people's stories from them is always a first step :-) Ha!
