@LFarnsworth Thank you for reading! And your post is RIGHT ON. I totally agree. Women just need to step up and ask.
@susansilver Yup, all about trying something new, but still tying it back to the main product or offering it some way. Thanks for reading!

Not really the main point of your (awesome) post, but +100 on this statement - "Though I worry for all of the above should Facebook shut down or Twitter stop working because they’re all unowned properties"
LinkedIn could totally be someone's... maybe an entire team's 24/7 job at a company if they really all focused there and just decided to kill it on LinkedIn. Between ads, managing groups, managing the company page... all of that is SUPER time-consuming. But I don't know if I would want to do that career-wise. Surely the skills you build really focusing on one thing like that are applicable elsewhere, but I still don't know that I would want to pigeon-hold myself like that.
For me, I know I would simply get bored (and kind of overwhelmed by the communication) doing one platform all day every day - hence why I've chosen to pursue a broader product-focused marketing role over a social media one now. But I would be interested to hear people's perspectives about what the career path is like when you do focus your role on platforms like that.
@keesromkes I totally recommend it! Seriously... email is something that has a huge impact on the life of an employee and pushing the culture that it is not the first choice mode of communication is a good decision in my opinion. I also personally like these tools over other chat and project management tools I've used at other companies.

@keesromkes I don't get a ton of spam actually. I talk to my people face to face and through HipChat. Sometimes I'll send an email just so there is a more detailed outline of steps to take for a project, but in those cases it's usually something we've already talked about and the email is more of a formality or something they can go back to to look at later... not something they should reply to. Make sense?
@emichaud But he's "taken" if you will... AND YOU'RE MARRYING ME.

@smit1293 color me biased... but I think we *are* big shots ;) I know what you mean though. And I'm certainly one not to focus nor discriminate based on college alone. I think it's about the skills and the person no matter what industry.
@smit1293 Thanks for your comment. :) Yeah I feel like luckily I can be pretty genuine when chatting about the big vision, for me it's about getting in front of the people to have those conversations with. I feel like I have a mountain to climb to expand my network to the point where these things are going to come up maybe more naturally, and I don't feel like I have the time to climb the mountain. We need and want to hire now.
@JamesonBull :) I liked this comment on the "social media manager" article - "The older you get, the dumber you realize you are." I guess I'm more and more aware of how little I know each day.

Hi Brien - Thanks for reading! This data comes from sharing trends for a global network of 200k publishers who reach more than 270 million people each month. This is a significant dataset. These publishers are a wide range of websites, mostly content-driven websites like blogs. Among our publishers are Wayfair.com and Patriots.com, if you're looking for evidence of our tools across the internet. Surely some websites get more Pinterest data than others depending on the industry, but across all websites this is the general trend.
Hope that helps!
