- Scott Monty ponders Facebook’s new “don’t call it email” messaging system at The Social Media Marketing Blog, and is saddened to learn teens can’t be bothered with crafting subject lines.
- 100,000 survey respondents can’t be wrong. Alexia Tsotsis explains the origins of YouTube’s new look on TechCrunch.
- Should you reward your brand’s fans for their advocacy? Joseph Jaffe and Zuberance CEO Rob Fuggetta debate the issue at JaffeJuice.
