New data from social sharing service ShareThis shows that for the first time, Pinterest outpaced email to become the third most popular sharing channel in the fourth quarter of 2013. While sharing via email declined 11 percent year-over-year, Pinterest shares increased 58 percent, making it the fastest growing […]
  • Facebook Debuts Real-Time “Trending” Topics On The Web
    Just ahead of the Super Bowl, the Oscars and the Winter Olympics, Facebook has launched a redesigned Trending section on the web. The update is an effort to make Facebook the place to know what’s going on in the real-time zeitgeist. And, the comparison to Twitter’s Trending Topics is obvious. Trending is “designed to surface […]

    Google has released a new plugin for publishers using WordPress.

  • Pew: 50 Percent In US Now Own Tablet Or E-Reader

  • Google, Moz & Hubspot Are The Most Recognized Marketing Tech Brands In Marketing Land Survey
    It wouldn’t be too hard to make a list of the things that Google, Moz and HubSpot have in common: they provide marketing technology products. They have legions of customers and fans.

  • Report: Super Bowl Ad Shares Jumped 89% Between 2012 & 2013
    According to a report released today by video technology firm Unruly, the number of shares for the top ten Super Bowl ads climbed from 5.4 million in 2012 to more than 10 million shares in 2013, representing an 89 percent increase in total shares across Facebook, Twitter and the blogosphere.

  • Google Fails To Prevent UK Court From Hearing Privacy Suit
    It’s rare that courts rule they don’t have jurisdiction to hear cases arising from events that happened on their own soil. Thus, predictably, Google has lost its bid to dismiss a UK-based civil complaint, arising out of the “Cookiegate” episode, on jurisdictional grounds. As you may recall, Cookiegate arose when Google was discovered surreptitiously circumventing the Safari browser’s […]
  • Axe “Peace” Super Bowl Ad Featuring North Korean & Middle Eastern Leaders Gets Early Launch

Not all of these tools deliver — but knowing what to leave behind in 2013 and what to […]
  • Yahoo’s De Castro Shown The Door By CEO Mayer
    USAToday, among others, reported yesterday that Yahoo COO Henrique de Castro “stepped down” from his role, in the wake of Yahoo’s decline from number two to number three (after Google and Facebook) in online advertising. Stepped down is polite. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer bounced him out the door. In an internal memo, published on Re/Code, […]
