I love a good story.
This is really going to cut into my Spotify time. :(

@Carrie Lee @ADemme Thanks for the reply, Carrie. I'll definitely be using VirtalTag with HootSuite.

Loving the ViralTag app. I didn't see any other pricing options, and would like to be able to upload my own images to schedule with ViralTag. Will upgrading to their other pricing tiers be possible soon?
We haven't run a contest in a while, but I would probably stick with a 3rd Party like Woobox, if only for ease of use and the legal jargon.

@andrewconnell Like most HootSuite streams you can choose to create a new tab or add it to an existing one. There's a subscription manager that you can use to select feeds to group together in one stream.

I do think that categorization is needed on Facebook, but they should find their own way to do it. You can link to a friend by typing in their name; surely this could be a similar action. Like typing +Photography and hiding the +. Again, I like what hashtags do, but also think that it would make Facebook less pretty.

Great point about thumbnail generation. We're in the process of image-ifying our website.

1) William Shatner – I Can't Get Behind That
(Has Been, arranged by Ben Folds) FUN album; had the chance to see the film William Shatner and the Gonzo Ballet at the Nashville Film Festival a few years ago and sat across the aisle from Shatner.
2) Broken Social Silence – Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl
(Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) This is my favorite album to work to; lots of good songs/artists on this one.
3) U2 – Original of the Species
(How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb) No stories here.
4) The Beatles – The End
(Abbey Road) Can't go wrong with Abbey Road.
5) Weezer – O Girlfriend
(Green Album) Love me some Weezer.

I'm very excited about this. To me, Facebook is bordering on being ugly at this point, and this looks like the first step towards the beautification of Facebook.
Searching on Facebook for specific interests, etc. is something that I miss from the early days when I had to register with my .edu email address.
This will encourage users to actively customize and update their profiles/settings, be helpful for companies searching for leads, and be a great help for Facebook's worth.

I like the idea of a personal note in each shipment, and is a concept that bat around once in a while here. Would you recommend including more than one social network in a note like that, or have you found it best to keep it simple? (i.e. "Thanks" followed by an invitation to Facebook)

@TammyKFennell @KenMueller I don't have a Dave. :(
So true; my start with social media is similar to yours. I was thinking about creating multiple accounts of the business I work at when I first started, and quickly realized that I just needed to focus on the 2-3 social networks that work best for us (Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter.)
Aside from the 'main' social networks, what others do you use the most?
