Tonight my 4 year old was screaming at the top of her lungs to her sister “I’m not normal!’ As usual I went to scream back and ask why are you screaming in my house…Okay, maybe there is another story there in the screaming…but the point is this. Her next response. “Mommy, I’m trying to tell sissy that I’m not normal because every one of my cut outs are different on purpose.” I asked her what she meant and she further explained, “Mommy, I make cut out phones and each one is different. Some have a long handle and some have buttons to push and some have dots that I drew on. But they are all different because I don’t want to be normal. I want to be different and make sure that each phone stands out.”
I just stared at her for a second. Then I thought for another second..”That’s my baby,” haha! But on a serious note, is your marketing plan too “normal?” And what is your definition of “normal?” Interesting right? We all know that in today’s market, we have to be innovative, we have to stand out. So how do you do it? You’ve got to remember how Continue reading →

So you may have noticed in your privacy setting a little section that is blurred out and says, “Suggest photo’s of me to friends,” and then it either has edit rights or it says “This is not yet available to you,” like mine does. Well, no worries, it’s rolling out to all Facebook users over the next few weeks. But your probably wondering “WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME???”
I’ll tell ya!
Facebook has installed face recognition software into its system so that when you upload photo’s of you, your friends, and family, they can now suggest “tags” so that you don’t have to go through the process of tagging people. I suppose for some this can be very handy, I know with a lot of “promotors,” when they have to TAG a photo of an event, this would be nice because now Facebook will remember (in theory) the last event photo and all who were TAGGED would be automatically suggested for the next event. Or if you have an upload of a large party and you have several friends who you have tagged previously, Facebook will suggest their names.
However, if you have a very “PRIVATE” page similar to mine, you may want to disable this function. You already know Facebook thought this through and has put in the ability to “LOCK OUT” the face recognizer from your Facebook buddies. Because really….some of us don’t want our pals randomly tagging us in their photo’s. I know I get tired of going through and “Untagging.” hahaha! Just kidding! Stay tuned for more updates on this feature!
