I left Google Reader for Netvibes about two years ago. I knew I'd lose major cool cred, but it has been a great choice for me. The interface is more engaging and I like its flexibility.
@bethhayden @ginidietrich I was thinking that Collections could at least be a competitor because they looked super slick. But then I heard they were off the table: http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/25/facebook-collections-shut-down/

@bethhayden @ginidietrich I agree -- Curalate is pretty awesome but sometimes elusive in showing their "special features." I also use Pinalerts to let me know what folks have pinned from my blog/clients' blogs. It saves manual time of plugging each URL at a said interval.
@ginidietrich I have found having "Pin Me" buttons near blog posts w/images has increased traffic from other pinners -- because those people become foot soldiers in linking a blog to their boards.
@bethhayden @ginidietrich Is it a Q&A here in the comments section? Just want to make sure I'm in the right place. :)
@ginidietrich All my ideas sound incredibly hokey -- but most revolve around that you'll never get busted for anything if you keep it clean. (So keep it clean and hold on to all the reasons that you love the bike/competition in the first place.) No matter how we frame it, it's going to be a tough conversation.

We are a big cycling family. My husband used to compete and he and I went to the 2005 TdF. I used to run a Yahoo! Group called "Queens of the Feed Zone" to talk about women/families who support their male cyclists. Back then, we asked each other, "How will we tell our children about Tyler Hamilton?" Because he had considerably less clout than Armstrong, the PR crisis remained with Hamilton for the most part. With Lance, the PR crisis spreads to competitive cycling as a whole. It's not just about HIS bike anymore.
Perhaps now Google will ease up on brand promotions/sweepstakes on G+ pages?

@Rollie I'll reply! I wrote about this very issue last week: http://sierratierra.com/2012/02/23/are-you-a-lars-ulrich-or-a-chuck-d-with-your-work-on-pinterest/
"Expect the unexpected" is fabulous advice for timelines -- or any other marketing plan on Facebook/Twitter/G+, etc!

Great post for its tangibility for small to mid-sized businesses. The costs of running Facebook ads (as seen in the post) are not outrageous and have a much better chance of grabbing your target audience -- esp. if you're in a market like Wholesome Tummies. Lord knows it's better than spitting in the wind with print media!

There's so much talk about *joining* LinkedIn groups. This is the first post I've read that encourages folks to start their own group. Great idea ... why *not* do it?
