The new changes to the Facebook desktop interface should be an eye-opener for any business using social networking platforms to connect with the public. It’s said that the revamped news feed has been designed in order to emulate the stripped-down Facebook app interface, as enjoyed by smartphone and tablet users. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the new look had been constructed in order to provide laptop and PC Facebook users with a less cluttered approach, with the ticker being given less prominence and relocated to subtle black sidebar, whilst photos and videos that appear on the news feed are now allocated more screen space. Whilst Zuckerberg has played down rumours that the refresh has been adopted purely with business in mind, the fact remains that the benefits to business promoting themselves via Facebook would seem vast.
On the way home from the PE office in Central London I came across this food truck promoting the new Game of Thrones DVD. Unfortunately there was no special guest, I imagine whoever it was had decided to go home by the time the truck reached Finsbury Circus.
Did you manage to see the special guest elsewhere in London? I would love to know who it was!

The recent introduction of Facebook Graph Search could revolutionise the manner in which many businesses, especially small local businesses, use Facebook to promote themselves. Hence, such businesses might have a lot to learn about how they can effectively promote themselves to people using Facebook Graph Search; however, Facebook have already provided some tips to help businesses to begin their learning.
Though many avid Facebook users are likely to be well aware of the website’s search function, they are likely to have only used it for a very limited range of purposes – including, for example, attempting to check if people that they know in real life also have their own Facebook pages. However, many people could soon be using the Facebook search function for a much greater number and variety of purposes, thanks to Facebook’s introduction of a new search feature known as Facebook Graph Search.

Wow, what an event!
I’m only just recovering from what was a hardcore 12 mile obstacle course. I’m so pleased that we have raised almost £900.00 for Daisy Chain, a local charity that deserves every penny and more!
I’ve been asked a few times what the hardest obstacle was…let’s just say that the “Electroshock Therapy” (10,000 volts) was ‘shocking’!
Thanks for your donations and support. To learn more about the event and to donate click here.

Though the town of Stockton-on-Tees today tends to attract less attention and visitors than its more highly-populated neighbour, Middlesbrough, its history as a town is actually several centuries lengthier. Still, despite this, Stockton was long considered a largely insignificant town before the laying of the first rail of the world’s first passenger railway in 1822 – which, it can be claimed, helped to dramatically transform both the country and the world. However, this isn’t Stockton’s only significant claim to fame.
