Hurray for Friday! We’ve been busy here at Affinitive with champagne toasts, monthly reports, and brainstorming for the next step! When not buzzing over a contest involving watching a livestream of baby squirrels, looking up summer reading book recommendations, watching the Shiba Inu puppy cam (why are they sleeping?) or mini-pig Hamlet learn how to walk [...]

Happy Friday! It’s been a busy week here at Affinitive, from laying out the ground work to transition into Timeline for brand pages – ours included! – to being baffled by the Feral Pigeon Twitter, to quietly cheering at the President’s underhanded political jab via his birth announcement on his Facebook Timeline. We’re logging off for [...]

Posted 28 February 2012 | By | Categories: Marketing, Research, Strategy | 2 Comments

It’s Friday! We’ve been either attending or livestreaming Social Media Week panels and caught up in #Linsanity  (yes, us too) and all its ever enduring puns and memes here in the office. When not live tweeting the Grammys or looking at breakdowns of the social media industry, we’ve been linking each other to these stories. We’re logging off for the [...]

The New York office was buzzing this week. Whether it was the post-glow of the Giants’ Super Bowl win, the inaugural Affinitive organized NYC Lithium Meet Up, or the countdown to Social Media Week where our own Bob Troia will be appearing on a panel, there was something in the air that made us all [...]

Posted 19 January 2012 | By | Categories: Social Media | No Comments

Yesterday afternoon I was graced with this tweet from Stewie Griffin that made so much sense I thought I’d write a blog post about it. As a community manager a lot of my job is writing content for Twitter. Let me tell you – for those of you who don’t also tweet obsessively throughout the [...]

Happy Friday the 13th! We’ve been doubling back, backing up everything repeatedly, and monitoring the office wireless from the corner of our eye today. When not puzzling over some truly bizarre taco-fueled crimes, refreshing the #truthvigilante hashtag, wondering at Verizon’s decision to create a gamified aspect to their brand or people who fell for the Facebook color scam, [...]

As we bow out of 2011 and ring in the New Year, the office’s been abuzz with predictions and lots of lists of what we’d like to see more of from our favorite apps and platforms. When not streaming Spotify’s top streamed songs of 2011, puzzling over Michelle Bachmann’s conspiracy theory that Facebook and Google are in [...]

Yep, I’m doing it, looking ahead for the next year in social media and making predictions, even though I’m likely to get them all wrong.  The landscape changes so frequently, but looking back at what we thought would happen in 2011 compared to what actually happened can give us insight into which direction we might expect [...]

The holiday weekend is here! When we weren’t scrabbling about doing last minute shopping, admiring Facebook’s new headquarters , and arguing which 90s heartthrob deserves a much coveted spot as our Timeline banner photo, we’ve been mulling over whether this list of stereotypes based on favorite books and albums of 2011 have any truth behind them. We’re [...]

Tis the season indeed! When not wrapping things up (literally and figuratively), arguing about the placement of ornaments on the office tree, and getting ready for the holiday, we’ve been asking Santa to respond to our Tweets and hearing out George Takei’s impassioned plea for Star Peace. We’re logging off for the weekend with these [...]
