Okay, I confess. I got busy with other things and didn’t find the time to update the links. But since a number of you have asked, it’s back. Love’s Links will summarize the shows and put the links out for you. We’ll also be working on the blog over the summer to bring it up to speed.
The links tonight?
Here’s our gift to you – by special arrangement with the Cutter Group, we are able to provide you with a free copy of Jim’s research report, Zen and the Art of Social CRM.
www.chelseaconsulting.ca – Jim’s company
www.performanceadvantage.ca – Owned by Chelsea – this is the CRM and Social Media arm of Chelsea Consulting
www.enterpriseefficiency.com – Jim writes for this blog
And the Facebook killer diaspora
Our guest was Jim Hirshfield from tynt.com
You have to look at Tynt. If you have a website and don’t have Tynt running, shame on you. For every social media action (a tweet or blog mention) there are 50 cut and paste actions.
The software puts a back link on anything that is copied from your site, giving you credit and a link anytime people use your content. 500,000 web sites are running the Tynt scripts.
Shoutem.com is a community that welcomes micro-bloggers and mobile communities. One of 5 mobile startups to watch in 2010 according to PC World.
Google Goggles allows you to read UPC codes and find the info online?
Janet’s discussion led us to the world of Facebook and our guest added this link noted how hobbies and favourites are now connected to pages in Facebook.
Tonight’s guest was John O’Brien, inventor of Twapper Keeper
John can be found at @jobrienniii
John gave us this interesting anatomy of a tweet
Please let me know if I missed anything — leave us a note or comment, please.
Janet’s tech talk this week was on Google Search Stories
Our guest was Mark Stanley from the Pullitzer Center. @PullitzerCenter and @dailydish are two twitter accounts worth following.
He also mentioned where he goes to keep up besides his own site - dotspots was one he mentioned.
Did I miss any? Drop me a note by commenting on this post.
We looked at a new development in mash ups meets social media with our own Allan Hoving’s thefrequency.tv
Christian Malpeli from Podfeed.net was our guest tonight.
Some of Christian’s favourite podcasts (you can find these on podfeed.net) are
- Photoshop TV
Janet’s pick for this week was stik The site titles itself as “Never Buy from a Stranger Again” I put two profiles in and I’ll let you know if I get any results. Great discussion on privacy issues and how pushy to be in social media.
Our guest on the program was Susan Tenby from Tech Soup. Her mission is to help non-profits “get” technology. Not for profits – if you aren’t checking out this site, you should be.
We spent a great deal of the program talking about non-profits in Second Life. The site NPSL: Nonprofits in Second Life is a wealth of information on this topic. Susan’s twitter id is @suzboop and her Second Life avatar name is Glitteractica Cookie – a creative and humorous monicker that got her featured on the Tonight Show. (Hey, John – my Twitter account is the therealjimlove — doesn’t that rate a small giggle? Of course it doesn’t match Allan’s avatar name – Naimya Price — groan!)
There were a lot of links mentioned. I’ll pick through my notes today, but if anyone out there wants to leave a comment with some of the links, that would be marvelous!
Janet Fouts brought us two interesting polling/sampling tools.
ask500people.com is a survey tool that lets you ask 4 questions. There’s a free and a premium version. Jim got great results from the free version, but the paid version gave results in minutes.
The second items was amplicate.com Amplicate allows a binary choice. It will tell you whether people think something is positive or negative. It’s simple and brutal. Things “rock” or they “suck”. Janet made the point that this is great for watching trending, so take a look at that.
Our guest was Dave Howlett RHB, the founder and managing director of Real Human Being Incorporated. If you want to find out more about Dave, check out his website at realhumanbeing.org
Dave mentioned Daniel Pink and I wrote him back to see if this was the same author he mentioned. I was sent this link by Bob McCulloch, an incredible consultant and an example of someone who is what Dave would call an RHB. He sends out the most thoughtful links to people and we all look forward to them. Great third gear behaviour.

Janet’s pick of the week was a oneforty.com This intriguing site has a complete list of almost every twitter related application you could mention. It’s beautifully laid out, great index and it even gives ratings to each one. You have to see it to believe it.
Adam Herman was our guest tonight. SVP of Barkley Advertising – the largest advertising agency in Kansas. Adam made some great observations in tonight’s show. Including:
- Digital engagement is the real game changer in media and advertising.
- CRM is a new discipline in media and advertising. It’s long been part of the direct marketing world.
- Measurement is a two edged sword. Just because it CAN be measured, doesn’t mean it SHOULD be.
His predictions for where things are going in the future:
- Local search will explode
- Most searches will be done from your phone
- Augmented reality will grow in importance
- Apps aren’t about the 99 cents – they offer a new way of engaging your customers whenever, wherever THEY want.
- A new discipline – branding in 2 sentences
