SoMe infographics, Google’s Facebook killer, SlideShowPro goes HTML5, North reminds us that social media is not a channel

These are my links for June 29th through July 1st:

  • 10 Beautiful Social Media Infographics – I get pretty excited about pretty data. Good to see you, pretty data. Next stop for you guys? Keynote.
  • PayPal Launches Mobile Express Checkout To Enable One-Click Buying On Smartphones – Uh oh. Amazon is going to have something to say about this.
  • Cashmore: Google building a Facebook rival? Let’s hope so – CNN.com – I’m looking forward to this for a couple reasons. First: competition is good for this industry. Second: I want to see how the “do no evil” Google mantra holds up in a social networking environment that is starting to push back on privacy. Watch for them to connect their search ad model. I smell new ad options in Google Adwords.
  • Introducing SlideShowPro Mobile – Video: The popular, robust slide show solution for Flash just released HTML5 support for non-Flash devices, eg iPad & iPhone.
  • The Social Media Problem for Companies – @daveatnorth from Portland agency North reminds us that social media shouldn’t be thought of as a fix for marketing your brand in this year’s web. Rather, it is a medium that makes it easier to act on our social nature. Let’s not forget that social media connects people and extends our ability to cultivate relationships. That’s the core purpose of participation in social media. Brands are guests at the party.

A list of 5 ways that Comcast sucks, today

Comcast can suck 5 times a day

Comcast can suck 5 times a day

  1. Comcast has called every day for the past week and left a message for me to call them back.  Calling the number they left places me at the general Comcast phone system menu.  What number do I press for, “I dunno douchebags, you called me?”.
  2. I have an account tied to one email address for comcast.com, and and a different email address and account for comcast.net.  Apparently, the two sides dont share info.
  3. In the menu tree, to reach the next menu, I have to wait though an advertisement… for a pay per view program I can’t even watch with my package.
  4. I made it through the Comcast phone number, entering my phone number, then my 16 digit account number (which I had to look up online, because I dont have it memorized), and got through to Anton. After a greeting from Anton, I asked why they called me.  Anton hung up.
  5. Finally, I was able to talk to a sales rep who was unable to suss out why they called me, but was plenty eager to offer, “Hey, while I have you, I see you’re not using Comcast for phone service…”
