Why Facebook Marketing Slaps Twitter Marketing In the Face | Search Engine Journal:
  1. "Huge Penetration: As the search volume Insights charts show, Facebook is more popular, and Twitter marketing is stagnant.
  2. Reliable Stats: Facebook’s built-in engagement stats rock, they tell you what FB cares about, and they won’t just disappear any old day like a third party Twitter app might.
  3. Ad Integration & Targeting: Facebook ads are a powerful synergistic way to add power to your FB page, and their targeting ability ROCKS.
  4. Mainstream Appeal: Facebook is multimedia – pictures and video – and if you didn’t notice, people like TV better than books. Facebook is more engaging and intuitive for normal people. (No, geeks are not normal people)
  5. Braslow’s Hierarchy of Awesomeness (see below): This classic marketing framework I created two weeks ago demonstrates the importance of brand. It’s easier to brand with Facebook than Twitter. Branding is key in red oceans because it’s the only thing your competitors can’t copy."

Tagmap | This module is part of a package of modules being developed by Jefferson Institute. These modules are meant to serve as tools for data visualization:
  • Timelinemap - It allows you to load one or more data sets onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously. Only items in the visible range of the timeline are displayed on the map. Timeline Map displays data represented in the timeline as markers on Google map.
  • KML content type - Users can attach .kml files to a node (with upload module), which in turn is displayed through the Google Earth API. If a user attaches several .kml files it is possible to choose between them via a drop-down box.
  • Google Visualization API - It uses Google Visualization API to display different types of charts. Pie, Bar, Column, Gauge, GeoMap, IntensityMap, Area, MotionChart and Scatter plot are supported at the moment.
  • Importer - Imports data in the database, handles batch upload of .zip files and connection of those files to the appropriate data in the created table.

Drupal CMS Pros and Cons | Top Website Guide to Design Marketing Development: "I believe one of the largest mistakes new website owners make in 2010 is to choose a basic and less powerful CMS like WordPress, simply because they don’t know or haven’t been exposed to Drupal. You can create a better site with more visual design and make it a lot easier for your visitors to find content if you choose Drupal. For sites at the $2,000 level and above, I would build in Drupal over all other choices, except maybe Joomla." - Excerpt from eBook for beginners.

Need for Speed: Google Adds Load Time to Algorithm: "Increasing site speed can have a significant effect on a company's bottom line. A Shopzilla case study showed that when a website sped up by 5 seconds after a redesign, there was a 25% increase in page views, a 7-12% increase in revenue, and a 50% reduction in hardware. More examples have shown that faster websites have more queries and visits per user, while slower websites have less searches as well as negative long-term effects -- users remember the lagging site and are reluctant to visit it even after load times have increased."

Paul Sterling on Umbraco vs. DNN: "While both are frameworks in the sense that they can be used as a basis for extension, Umbraco has a more “native” .NET approach in that .NET controls (user controls, custom controls, and the like) can be used “as is” either via Umbraco macros or inline in your markup without any special consideration for the framework."
