The New “Theater of Nightmares”
 
After Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement at the end of the 12/13 season the club and its fans didn’t have a lot to enjoy. As a matter of fact, the “Theater of Dreams” became a source for nightmares for the ManU fans.

Facebook has put itself on the “hitlist” (not hotlist) of many business page owners, including brands and high caliber individuals. A few algorithm changes have caused reach on business pages to drop dramatically. Facebook, and some supporters that have more or less interest in the company, claim the step was necessary to “control” content and make sure people find what they are looking for in their newsfeed. Relevance is a popular word used in their explanations. Correct me if I am wrong, aren’t you the one who decides what is relevant for you? Read the rest of this entry »

Social Media Marketing Tool How to Make Your Company Culture a Social Media Marketing Tool

Your company culture can become a social media marketing tool. Unfortunately, many companies don’t recognize this.

Social media is probably the most influential communication opportunity in todays world. There really is truly nothing like it. Everyone is in it even though no one is leading it. Yet, no structure or enterprise or organization can ever equal the influence on both social and business cultures.

Naturally, the corporate world was a little slow to adapt. Many businesses viewed social media as an hindrance to work, a personal activity that doesn’t benefit the business in any way.

Last Sunday my girls and I went to GQ Bar at JW Marquis in Business Bay for their famous Sushi Sundays. I’m always looking for the new sushi places in Dubai so thought it would be worth a taste. What I really like about it is that the vibe is really cool and trendy, a perfect spot to go on a date or out with your girlfriends. Sushi Sundays are platters or Sushi with amazing cocktails. The dinner starts with two entrees that in this case were spicy edemame and prawn tempura accompanied with fried asparagus. The spicy edemame was good but a bit too spicy for my liking. The prawn tempura and fried asparagus was simply divine, best I’ve ever had. The sushi platter that came after was not only delicious but full of different creative and tasty options to choose from. One of my girls was a vegetarian…

Many parents have long been forced to approach their parental control through old and dated manors such as frequently asking their children about their activities, clarifying how things are progressing and contacting them on their phones when required. There are now smarter ways to accomplish this without being a thorn in your child?s side every step they take.
