Social media is a double-edged sword.
Put to good use, it can be a salve for humanity’s woes. Social media allows us to share helpful content, seed ideas, connect with long-lost friends, and form communities around specific interests, relationships and affinities. It also lowers the communication barriers for small businesses, solo-preneurs and freelance talents, allowing them to reach their markets at a fraction of the cost.

Content marketing is the new marketing silver bullet. Everybody is talking about it.
How do we create great content that sizzles (not fizzles)? More importantly, how do we keep the pipeline full while sustaining customer relationships through content?
By now, many would have noticed that our genteel northern neighbour has been creating a mini “social revolution” on YouTube. Its videos have generated such virality that they are being talked about all over the world.

Announcing its brand new algorithm for search recently at its birthday, Google’s Hummingbird claims to make search more natural, contextual and human.
