Found this little gem of a site where you can create your own infographics. Thought it very suiting to compare myself with one of my best friends, Brent. We’re pretty much the same person.
I bet a lot of you didn’t know you couldn’t change the name of a Facebook Page once it reaches 100 Likes. I do, and I am willing to help people, but it seems so few value the knowledge that I have.
Constantly I would hear or get the impression that most folks don’t want to pay someone to tell them how to use Facebook, it is a free service after all. Sure it is and for the record, I wouldn’t tell someone what to do, I would help. What these folks don’t realize is, at the end of the day, a Facebook Page is a marketing tool. You are there to promote something, bring awareness about something, keep people informed, so it is important to fully think out what you are doing.
Besides determining if Facebook really is for the client I’m working with, the first thing we would do is find a good page name. Like I mentioned above, once you hit 100 likes, there is no turning back to change it. A Facebook Page name is like the domain name for your website. You can’t change it and expect people to know that you did or where your new place on the Internet is.
When choosing a Facebook Page name some best practises are to find a name that clearly says who/what/where/how and one that has longevity. Those are the two factors that I think are most important. The wwwh so users knows exactly who they are dealing with and longevity because you want a name that covers all your bases, for whatever you do.
I hope name you have some insight into naming a Facebook Page and how important it is with Social Networking to talk to someone who works with it on a daily basis. If you have a question or need help, please email me, or leave a comment below.
THis was passed on to me today via Twitter (what isn’t it seems these days) and it shows where Twitter is in 2012. Infographics are great.
It shows Twitter’s numbers, its ups and downs, its celebrities (I couldn’t care less about) and how fast it is growing.

Time to reflect on my blogging of 2011. I wont get into any more details than that. For more on what I am looking forward to in 2012, you can read my New Years Blog Post.
In the fall of 2011 I started doing my Podcast again, this time it geared towards featuring northern photographers and creative people. Doing that gave me a boost in traffic, and shows in the Top 5 Posts below.
- KyleWith: Photojournalist Pat Kane – Pat was the 3rd photographer I interviewed on my podcast and is based in Yellowknife. He works for the northern publication, UpHere Magazine, as the Photo Editor. He has some interesting things to share as most of his photos have a real story to them. Pat also just got engaged, congrats, Pat.
- New 60th Parallel NWT Border Sign – Driving back to Yellowknife back in June 2011, I stopped at the 60th Parallel or NWT Border with Alberta. They had just put up a new NWT sign, which I like, but many don’t.
- KyleWith: Photographer Kyle Marquardt – Kyle is the latest photographer I have interview and although he is based in Calgary, he has traveled the world. Including the arctic, which is what caught my eye. He loves photographing and is really making a name for himself.
- KyleWith: Designer Janet Pacey – Janet is not a photographer, but she is highly creative and knows how to use that. She is the creator of the popular Ptarmi stuffed toy, which I have blogged about. She is also funny, have a listen.
- Election Results Explained in Hilarious Image – 5th on the list is a funny infographic I found right after the federal election results were announced. It is mildy amusing and if you understand politics, you should think so too.
There you have it my top 5 of 2011.
