Link Friday: The I-found-too-much-stuff edition

Posted on Friday, December 16, 2011 by Alan

Christmas came early for your fearless Link Friday leader, as I found far, far too much stuff to fit into a manageable blog post. So I’ll just whittle it down to the best of the best, and you’ll just have to wait until the next Link Friday to see what makes the cut then.

On with the links!

  • I shared a similar story a couple weeks back, but Mashable has now posted the results of its eye-tracking study for Facebook brand pages (like the ones we run). As it turns out, the wall captures most everybody’s attention, more so than apps or even fancy profile pictures.
  • Speaking of Facebook, the social network rolled out its much-ballyhooed (and much-delayed) Timeline feature this week. No word on whether Facebook will do the same sort of feature with brand pages, but I’ve read a few things that seem to indicate it will happen sometime down the road.
  • Continuing on the social media front, Twitter topped digital marketing agency Zeta Interactive’s list of buzzworthy social networks. “For culture, breaking news and celebrities it is the social network,” CEO Minna Rhee said in an interview.
  • Still not done with your holiday shopping? (Me neither.) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a good list of gifts for the traveler in your life, including (and, no I’m not making this up) disposable underwear.

Have a good weekend, and we’ll see you back here next week!
