If you have a brand or want to market yourself, one of the most important things you can do is setup a Facebook page where people can find out about you or your brand. It has become a necessity in order to reach the masses. However, it's quite an endeavor to setup your own Facebook page. Knowing where to begin or what category to put it in can be worth thinking about before you start hooking it up. The sign up process; however, isn't hard and should only take you a few minutes. After that, it is pretty much comes down to deciding what you share in order to interest the people who find your page.
But what kind of page should you focus on and how do you choose? These are legit questions that sometimes don't come with clear answers. That is why I dug up this infographic by FirstScribe, which is simply called Create A Facebook Page. It will take you through the entire process of signing up and setting your page up correctly so that you maximize the interaction with your potential fans and consumers.
When the page is all setup and done, then what? Now comes the process of getting it out there. It's one of those time consuming endeavors that really takes effort. The flowchart roughly outlines how you can get the word out about your page, and what channels you could use. It's all about visibility and the way you front yourself. The more appealing your Facebook page is, the more people are going to like it and comment on your sharings. It's hard work, yes, but it could determine whether you make it or break it so don't make the mistake of thinking it doesn't matter. The world is transforming into an all Internet based community and being seen is everything, at least if you want your brand, product or idea to become successful.

Now that Facebook is on the stock market and seemingly everyone is voicing their opinion about it, it's hard to focus on anything else really. Every news website is cramming out estimates and predictions that vary from either a doomsday perspective or that Facebook will become the greatest stock ever. It doesn't really matter what it will become, the future holds the facts and all we can really do (or at least the ones who have bought the stock) is to hope that the people at Facebook have a revenue plan and a clear idea about how they can grow it in order for the stock to have positive trend. As you see, it's easy to get into it all and that is not really what this article is about.
It is actually entirely about another giant that we might or might not see on the stock market in the future, Pinterest. Yes, I'm talking about that female driven giant of a social networking site that seems to have no boundaries when it comes to growing its armies of pinners. The service is constantly making updates, and the platform is becoming an essential tool in a marketer's arsenal to get his or her message out.
What if this new service was created in the '90s? How would it have looked? There's no need to ponder over that since I have a video of exactly how it would have looked, or at least if you were to ask its creator Squirrel-Monkey who has a long track record of imagining what never was. It is the ultimate retro trip back in time, and the video itself is anything but modern to say the least. So now that you know what Pinterest could have been, aren't you glad to know that Pinterest is what it is, and that it was launched fairly recently?

For those of you who don't already know, Voyager is one of my favorite Star Trek series. I faithfully watched nearly every episode as it aired. If it wasn't for Battlestar Galactica, it might possibly be my favorite series. In either case it lands squarely in my top three. As a series, it holds the rare distinction of having a major character added after it was well established, and the series itself actually improved after that. What I am saying is that unlike many shows, adding Seven of Nine, played by Jeri L. Ryan, actually helped the show which aired for an amazing seven seasons. Usually when a new major character is added, you know in your heart of hearts that it marks that the apex has passed, and the show is on it's way to being canceled.
However, this is even more amazing because the series was the cornerstone of the United Paramount Network (UPN) which was an attempt to break the stranglehold the 'big three' held on network broadcasting. Ultimately, the resistance to the establishment was futile, and UPN eventually dissolved, but not before completing the series. Yet another amazing facet of the show was that it portrayed several very strong female characters in leadership roles. Two of the most notable were the ship's half Klingon Chief Engineer B'Elanna Torres, played by Roxann Dawson and of course the ship's Captain Kathryn Janeway, played by Kate Mulgrew.
So it is probably quite fitting that Regali Kitchen honored them in the form of dark chocolate cake with light caramel frosting. Obviously, this was a commissioned project for a client who I believe enjoyed the show as much as I did. Of course, since I'm more than allergic to chocolate, I would have to simply stare in awe at the artistry yet not ever be able to eat it. I like cake probably more than just about any other food except beer and bacon, and that's not out of any weird über geeky collector obsession or anything, trust me, but that's an entirely different sort of passion. Because I know you are wondering; my top three are Stargate SG1, Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek Voyager.
