Global Copywriting BRIEF: The Wordle Is..."Hi Duncan, That's right. The more prominent the words appear in your Wordle graphic, the more often they're used in your text. It's a great way to make sure you're hitting your keywords if you're writing for SEO - or the right keywords. It's great for any writer though as it reveals when you've used a word too often. I recently wrote a short blog post - under 300 words - and 'scour' came up 3 times. I had no idea I had used it more than once. Believe me, that's not a word you need use often. "
So What's In It For Me?"LinkedIn is the granddaddy of social media tools and was around long before the free-for-all of virtual friendships brought on by Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. It was intended as a tool to keep your network lodged in one place that was easily updated. I still use it this way. I love the new "ignore" button which makes it a bit easier to get rid of the social media groupies. "
Social Media for Business: The perils of staking professionalism against popular opinion"You're right, a lot of rhetoric is passed along in blogs. I find those posts can be very polarizing. I do think we underestimate the reader. They know when they're being gamed. I certainly knew when I was getting holiday ecards from people that weren't so interested in wishing me glad tidings as they were trying to sell me something. I'm with you. Let's make business blogs a politics-free zone in 2012."
Social Media and Privacy: Are you putting yourself in a fish bowl?"You're right, Duncan. Even though I've always thought I've been careful, the more I dig into this topic the more I find out how much we're all giving away and much of it inadvertently. While I'm not worried about content I'm intentionally publishing - like blogs - it's the odd rant on Twitter or a nonsense Facebook wall post that could really come back to bite. Recruiters are turning to social media more and more to vet candidates. It's a HUGE topic. Thanks for your keen observation. I appreciate it. "
