And it’s Friday again. Where did the week go? If you’re like most of us, you’re deluged with data and information all week. We consume so much content daily, it’s nice to have a day off the serious topics, and on to something a little more fun. And so begins #FunFriday.
Fridays in the blogosphere are generally a bit more relaxed. Over at Spin Sucks, Gini Dietrich does her #FollowFriday recommendations, as well as the Gin and Topics series with the top five videos every week.
Geoff Livingston uses his Friday posts to talk about a subject important to him, the environment.
Ken Mueller is doing the Friday Blogging Experiment throughout 2013, where he turns Friday into his own personal sandbox.
Our #FunFriday will be a bit different as we’re going to switch it up weekly. Today is best of the web, next week might be our employees’ favorite music picks, the week after that…?
This week, we came across some great articles from the Interwebs – some fun and some newsworthy – so without further ado…
Breakfast isn’t just a meal you eat in the morning, it’s something you can eat any time of day. How many times have you asked yourself, “Why doesn’t McDonald’s serve breakfast all day?” Whether or not you agree with McDonald’s business practices, their breakfast, specifically the Egg McMuffin, has been a favorite for 40 years so why not serve it all day? PRNewser does bring up a good point: Does McD’s run the risk that this increased availability might eventually equal McMuffin boredom?
We’re so involved in our industries, we tend to think everyone knows how important they are, what we do all day long, and why. Of course, the reality couldn’t be more different. Ever asked your mom to explain what you do for a living? For Mother’s Day, Rob Toledo, contributor to SEOmoz, asked his mom a series of questions about what she believes his industry does, and how she thinks search engines function in general. It’s a fun conversation, but the gist is it’s valuable to remove yourself from your “echo chamber” and have a conversation with someone who has a minimal understanding of what your industry is all about.
This isn’t news to those of us who use Facebook for business but this post from Social Media Examiner highlights what has changed and offers some great examples of how business are leveraging the new rules to boost their business. If there’s any that stand out to you, share them in the comments.
I realize this is a Pinterest board, but it is too good not to share. We live in an age where visual content gets a lot of traction. Infographics are a creative way to display your information in something other than a white paper or case study. When they’re good, they’re really, really good. However this isn’t about good infographics, this is about bad ones. Really, really bad ones.
We’ve seen plenty of LEGO remakes, but this one is fantastic. When you combine these childhood building blocks with a hit television drama you get LEGO Breaking Bad: The Video Game. This video does contain spoilers from the show’s first four seasons so you have been warned! It’s amazing what you can do with a little time, effort, and some LEGO.
If you come across any good articles or funny videos, share them with us in the comments or drop them onto our Facebook page.
Happy Friday all and have a wonderful weekend.
