You didn’t think I was going to forget about Link Friday again, did you?
You did? Well, that’s understandable, based on recent history.
But I’m here, back and better than ever, with two weeks’ worth of links to meet your Friday afternoon clicking needs. And away we go…
- Facebook Timeline went live for brand pages today (I think they’ll be a boon for businesses, since it’s easier for fans to use, and the pages encourage a strong visual focus), and AllFacebook takes a look at the top celebrity Timeline pages.
- What was that I said about Timeline increasing engagement? A new study (granted, based on limited data) says brand page engagement increased 46% for some companies after they switched to the new look.
- Who’s hungry? The Daily Meal looks at the 101 best restaurants in America. It’s outrageous that there’s not a single Culver’s on there.
- A partnership that makes a lot of sense in my eyes: Pure Michigan has teamed up with the Detroit Tigers to promote tourism in the state.
- And the Detroit Free Press has a good article on the changing face of tourism for our neighbors to the north and east: For the first time, out-of-state tourists spent more than in-state tourists in Michigan.
- Has a potential employer ever asked you for your Facebook password so they can snoop on you? Seems pretty shady: I don’t want my bosses knowing how much I like Pat Benetar.
- How long does the average online empire last? Just over a decade, says PR Daily in this informative infographic.
- You can now turn your tweets into toilet paper. And no, this is not an April Fool’s Day joke.
- Screenshots of Despair. The name says it all.
- Kindra found this super-cool map that highlights 41 reasons to visit Brooklyn.
- In case you missed it last week, it turns out we’re a pretty (pretty, pretty, pretty) great place to work. (You’ll get the joke when you read the link.)
That’s all for us this week. Have a great weekend, everybody!
