Just as we teach our children how to ride a bike, we need to teach them how to navigate social media and make the right moves that will help them. The physical world is similar to the virtual world in many cases. It’s about being aware. We can prevent many debacles if we’re educated. — The Truth About Kids And Social Media (via fastcompany)

James Ku & teammate Christie Susko of #nyuAdvSM-Thursday present an alternative to a 2012 botched McDonald’s social media marketing program for their final presentation.
Introducing #FavoriteMcShake, a program that targets health-conscious Millennials with an interest in active lifestyles and a taste for fruit or veggie smoothies.
The best response when students — especially those of the grad student variety — claim that they’re too busy to complete projects.
Good life-advice in this fine addition to Tyler Adam Smith’s ingenious project, 100 Books That Should Be Written: Busy Is a Decision by Debbie Millman, a title borrowed from her very real synthesis of 10 hard-earned life lessons.

For example, if the Blogging Workshop’s Mary Aracena didn’t create this post for A little bit of M , I wouldn’t know that she nabbed the job she was interviewing for last week. Congrats, Mary!
On the first night ofclass, I asked Mary, “What does A little bit of M want to be when it grows up?’ The question inspired a lot of thought on Mary’s part, including a tagline overhaul: Lost My Mind. Found Happiness.

Something tells me that this is just the beginning. You Saturn probably won’t complete its return that fast.
Barry Hott of Likeable Media takes on the buzziest of all social media buzzwords: ROI.
