Every week we have our team meeting at ReSoMe and each team member is assigned a “speciality” or two. They specialize in 2-3 social networks or platforms and monitor the blogs and news around those specialities for relevant social media links, important updates, trends and awesome examples of businesses using those social platforms. These are some of the highlights from around the web this week:
We love StumbleUpon for finding cool content, a bit of curation and a lot of awesome. Be warned – you can lose hours on here, and now you can stumble even better on the go with their new iPhone app! (Have you tried it? How did you like it?)
A busy week on the Facebook side!
Instead of retelling all the hot stories we will just provide some links to allfacebook.com that already do an awesome job doing just that! There is a handy reference tool for Facebooks 20% text ad rule (images cannot be more than 20% text or be covered with more than 20% text) and the infographic shows you what 20% looks like – if you use Facebook ads bookmark it!
This is cool – but just speculation right now, there seems to be some sneaky code in Facebook that looks like Pages might be able to manage Groups in the future (they can’t now, to the dismay of community managers and brands everywhere) so fingers crossed for this!
Some insight into Graph Search and out biggest take away from these – fill out your profiles! Use every field Facebook allows you and make sure your keywords are integrated and strong! Also, make your own content, you will only get credit in search for content that you initially post (not that you just re=post from somewhere else) so get creating!

Happy Anniversary Flickr!
On January 16, 2008, Flickr and the United States’ Library of Congress partnered to create the Flickr Creative Commons. Since then, dozens of city, state and national archives have joined the cause and added their photos to the collection. The photos in the Commons are of historical or national significance, and many have a ‘no known rights restrictions’ license, so you’re free to use them for most non-commercial purposes.
