Here’s our daily recap of what happened in online marketing today, as reported on Marketing Land and other places across the web.

From Marketing Land:

  • A Virtuous Cycle Of Twitter Community Management

    What if a prominent journalist followed a brand’s Twitter account and no one noticed? No one on behalf of the brand reciprocated the follow. In an ideal situation, the journalist would have been thanked, added to a list, and engaged. Ouch! It’s easy for community managers to get caught up in the daily and hourly [...]

  • Survey: 49 Percent Of SMBs To Incorporate Mobile Into Marketing Efforts Next Year

    A new survey sponsored by mobile lead-gen provider Pontiflex found that 49 percent of small businesses (SMBs) are “somewhat likely or very likely” to incorporate mobile into their marketing efforts in the next year. The online survey had 1,300 respondents, mostly from the US. Among those that were already buying mobile ads/media, 72 percent planned [...]

    More than 25 million users leverage StumbleUpon to discover great content across the web. Today they’ll be able to discover more content quicker than ever thanks to new iPhone and iPad apps. Not only are the apps easier to use with navigation and design upgrades, but they also contain new features like StumbleDNA and slide previews. “Slide” [...]

  • Up Close With Twitter’s New Header Photos For Profiles

    In case you missed the big announcement on the Today Show yesterday morning, Twitter has updated profiles with a new Timeline-like header photo that will appear across platforms, transitioning the social channel to become more visual and image-centric. How To Update Your Twitter Profile Header There isn’t an obvious “update” on your profile, though, you’ll [...]

  • YouTube Is Top Free App In iTunes Charts; Google Maps To Be Next?

    It’s been a week since Google released its first ever YouTube app for the iPhone and iPad. It’s now the top free app in iTunes and may be a harbinger of what will happen with the expected Google Maps app. YouTube Loses Default Status It may sound odd to some that YouTube is new to [...]

  • Twitter’s New iPad App: The Old & New, The Good & Bad

    Twitter has a new iPad app out for the service. Some hate it already. Certainly it feels less “iPad-like” than the old one, in that you can’t just swipe around with a finger to go between content. But the app does have nice benefits in learning about others or discovering engagement on tweets. Let’s take [...]

  • As Expected, Twitter Drops Support For Third-Party Image Uploads

    Twitter debuted a shiny new user profile page today and simultaneously launched new versions of its official iOS and Android apps. Much was made of the changes, but lost in the PR blitz is this: Any Twitter user that posts photos to the service from now on will be doing it via Twitter’s own photo [...]

  • Facebook Testing Mobile Ad Network

    The much-rumored Facebook ad network is taking another step closer to reality.

The mobile ad network test builds upon what Facebook has [...]
