Top 10 FB Marketing Mistakes

I was interviewed on Blab by some folks with a show on Blab… but then Blab went away! A lot of social media folks put a lot of time and emotion and hope into the platform, and ultimately, it didn’t gain traction, and the company that started it gave up and did so in a way that angered their devotees.

Stick with the big ones like Google and Facebook.
