From Marketing Land:

  • 64 Percent Of Digital Marketers Plan To Spend More On Social Ads In 2013 [Report] Many online marketers love social media marketing because it’s traditionally been a free channel for customer outreach and/or customer service, but almost two-thirds of those who answered a recent survey say they’ll be spending more on paid social media ads this year.

  • Report: YouTube Planning To Launch Paid Channels YouTube is reportedly planning a move that will boost its own revenue, while simultaneously giving brands and video producers another way to make money.

The new look feature larger images, better navigation and a faster overall experience. The biggest change occurs with the look of the pin. Big, bold pictures are displayed alongside pins from the same board, related pins and other boards that [...]
  • Report: Google+ Now 2nd-Biggest Social Network Worldwide Google+ has passed Twitter and is now the second-biggest social platform worldwide with 343 million active users. That’s according to a recent report that, frankly, has some confusing claims and stats. The data is from GlobalWebIndex, a site/service that I can’t claim to have ever heard of before. The company says it does 130,000 Internet [...]
