It’s all about the headline! Your Twitter feed should never read like morning announcements at your high school. Take a cue from news headlines and draw in the reader. The best idea for Twitter is to post a fun headline and then link to an equally fun blog post.

Sameh Elamawy (MBA ‘12) recently launched mobile app MoveTogether, which aims to simplify the discovery and organization of last-minute activities for friends and nearby interest groups. App users can browse existing local activities that match their interests, or start new events and invite friends. Learn more: http://stnfd.biz/hJhnW

Could be great for restaurants, coffee shops, and bars to draw in groups, especially for music and events.

Here’s an interactive map that shows the median income of every neighborhood in the U.S. 
Rich Blocks, Poor Blocks is an interactive map showing the average income for every neighborhood in America. Type in your address, press search, and there you have it: Your city, shaded by income, according to data from an annual survey conducted by the Census Bureau. The greenest blocks—Census blocks, that is, not city blocks—signify the richest areas, typically bringing in an average household income of $100,000 or more a year. The reddest blocks are the poorest, with annual income somewhere around $20,000. All the rest get some shade of red or green, depending where they fall.
Check out the full story here.

For your marketing needs or just because it is mega interesting. Yes, we said mega!

Come in and try the worst meatball sandwich that one guy on Yelp ever had in his life

Is this a good idea? Is any publicity (attention), good publicity (attention)? No. Of course, restaurant owners and managers get annoyed with Yelpers from time to time, but do not alienate your customers, even unhappy ones. Plus, putting out negativity may get someone’s attention, but how many customers will this tactic actually bring in. 
However, we are glad this guy did it, because it is a good laugh. And if you choose this route, you better be sure this is an excellent meatball sandwich or you will have even more  Yelp reviews saying the same thing.
