Getting The Most Out of Checking In: Foursquare For Your Business

We all have those friends, the ones who only use social media to tell us where they are, what they had for lunch, or what book they are currently reading while sitting on their porch enjoying the weather. These mundane and often pointless updates that seem to plague our internet activity leave many of us wondering, "What's the point?"

Foursquare Advertising: What It Means For You

We have talked before about how Foursquare can do wonders for your business, but now the tech giant has introduced something that can maximize your local online marketing potential - advertising.

It is a given that we all have to maintain our social media in order to stay relevant as a business, regardless of size. What is often unclear, however, is how to respond in times of tragedy. Should we address the issue and risk offending or alienating a part of our user base? The answer to this is both yes and no.
