weekend-update-january11-schneiderbHappy Social Media Saturday! Listed below in my Weekend Update are links to interesting things I found on the web this week: cool tools, great blog posts, or questions/comments from one of the SchneiderB.com online communities – anything that stuck out to me and I think is worth sharing. I encourage you to check them out for yourself!

That would be a complete waste of time, not to mention that there are more important online marketing strategies to focus on other than getting more fans on Facebook. Fans are important, but engagement and list building on Facebook are so much more valuable
