Mastering The Uncomfortable Art Of Personal Branding | Fast Company
Valuable insight into how to engage people with a mix of personal and professional details. Cites @garyvee. Could be more valuable if it had mentioned several use cases and the importance of knowing your audience. Be clear about whom you're trying to engage. Imagine yourself across the table with two of three of your stakeholders at lunch, what would you talk about? Those are the kind of details to share. Not random things. Another of the post's valuable points: weave the things together in terms of a story. That will help people relate to what you share and remember you better. We covered this in more detail here: - see the section under "use scenarios" Thx @melanie_adcock

How to get more honest search results - InfoWorld
Backlash against Google/Google+, this post shows how to 1) how to disconnect Google+ from Google search results and 2) configure your browser to default to non-Google search engines. Useful, but assumes 2 things that will be untrue for some people: a) Google+ results "pollute" search results in all cases; b) Yahoo/Bing give better search results. Although all of the above could be true in some cases, the devil is in the details. It is surprising that the post didn't mention a much better alternative:, whose algorithm sorts results from all three search engines. Executive's Guide recommends being aware of the ground shifting under search. Don't get caught up in religious wars, and try different things. As we have argued in these pages here, Google+ results will enhance certain kinds of searches and will return inferior results in others. As infoworld says, users can "filter out" Google+ search results on a case-by-case basis, so the watchword is to try different things. Also, get acquainted with, it could add serious value in some use cases/situations. If you really want "quality" in terms of what you're trying to accomplish, Google+ has made it more complicated. C'est la vie, quoi! ;^(

More sales leads stem from websites, not social media (survey) | ZDNet
ZDNet reports on "research" that finds that websites provide 7 times more sales leads than "social media" but the writer doesn't appreciate the self-irony in the second paragraph: "A company’s corporate website was found to be the top source of new sales leads online — second only to personal referrals.." As B2B continues to adopt social business, more word of mouth, i.e. personal referrals, happens online. Another reason I'm calling out this post is that it misinforms readers by treating "sales leads" as a homogeneous category. Our clients don't care about general adoption; what's more relevant is adoption by their prospects. This post treats all leads as the same, so it's really the equivalent of informational fast food. To end on a dour note, misinformation can work to your advantage because your rivals may read it and believe while you can see through it, invest and pull ahead.
