@lauraclick I heard about Giving Tuesday here and there, but it surely wasn't promoted well. And as for this time of year, I've seen a big difference over the past ten years, and I think the Internet is a big part of that. And I understand the need to make money and be successful in business, but I think we're headed down a dangerous path.

@LizJostes I'll just let you and Katie bond here...
1 week, 4 days ago on Tumblr: Taking Obsessions to a New Level
@dbvickery Well, I'm not a drinker! (And yes, I had to look those two words up!). But food speaks to me, that's for sure. And yes, I think changes are a'comin' in a lot of places.
1 week, 5 days ago on Crossing Cultures: How Are Your Marketing Messages Interpreted?
@LizJostes Agreed. People are already taking pictures of food and such, so why not take advantage of that? It reminds me of that story from a year or so ago where some restaurants wanted to ban patrons from taking pictures of their food.

@LizJostes I found a lot of great examples yesterday (with your help and the help of others!), and I love how creative and open some of them are to experimenting and using content from customers.
@JohnMTrader I know a lot of people worry about this, but unless you're giving away secrets, it's a nobrainer.

@joyike @KenMueller @MichaelEdits Wow, that's harsh. I guess when they own things they don't have to worry about "due process," but it sure isn't good customer service!

@MichaelEdits I was definitely surprised at how quickly the problem was corrected. But it seems the networks should ask questions first, and then take action, rather than the other way around.
@joyike That is so odd. I'd love to know the real reasoning behind that.

@Frank_Strong Agreed. I think that the whole white paper thing has become very disappointing. When I download one, I want some great meat and research. I don't want something I could have found anywhere in a slideshare or powerpoint, followed by a pitch.
The motive and approach are key.

@samtaracollier Oh, and long time no see! Welcome back!
@samtaracollier Yeah, one of these days these social networks fill figure out how to be social in their dealings with account holders, and how to deal with this sort of thing.
@Nicole Underwood Sadly a lot don't get it!

@joyike Well, the good news is, that in my case, at least, it was resolved within a day. Hopefully it goes smoothly for you and you can figure it out. Let me know how it goes!

@gizziechick I fully understand and appreciate what they are trying to do, and wish Facebook would do the same thing, but not quite so hastily and vigilantly. I hate the mentality of doing something and then assessing the damage after the fact. Due diligence is all I ask for...
@maryhruth Eh, it's really OK. It just hampers some of my business related stuff. If this goes on a long time, it will become a real pain.
