Quite simply, some charts that may be of interest. For example, note how Apple is supplanting Microsoft in search volume; that PR may be peeling upwards away from advertising and even marketing; the relative fortunes of Google+, Facebook and Twitter; social media may be levelling off; and, especially heartwarming for me, Star Wars is much … Continue reading Trends
So today, on Today on Radio 4, and the front page of the Guardian, and on the BBC, and probably everywhere else, is the story of Facebook, Google, and a PR company that I'm not going to continue to kick (because I don't like kicking PR agencies). That is, Facebook's agency allegedly trying place smear … Continue reading Facebook and Google: if you can’t do the time…
They're all ways of linking, true. They're all different words for linking on blogs, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and so on. Also true. But they all mean the same thing. And that thing is?

Of course, she didn't listen to me so I decided to have a look myself. Immediately, I came up against a problem. I wanted to search for groups in London, but couldn't find an easy … Continue reading Advanced Search: Facebook gets it slightly wrong again
Why oh why oh why oh why oh why does Facebook keep changing? I recently had call to get back into Facebook for a new business pitch (post-edit: we won). I knew it had changed and needed to clue up on the differences. It was broadly similar but, well, different. And on looking back at … Continue reading Facebook? Facelift more like.
I've been doing a lot of thinking about the PR Friendly Index recently. Given that I'm not working in social media exclusively any more, it's a pain in the arse to maintain and other indexes do this better (and keep getting better too), I've been thinking of scrapping it.
