RebelMouse is a cool website that combines all your social platforms into one page.
The best part for me about RebelMouse is that you can embed your profile on any website and you can have multiple profiles e.g. Personal and business. Now friends and family who are not on social platforms can go to your link(s) and see what you are up to without having to log in and check multiple platforms. Continue Reading →

It was time for me to update my profiles, specifically on my 2 blogs that I manage and all my social platforms. What a pain in the ass! However I had embedded my About Me page on this blog and it dawned on me that I could embed it on my other platforms too. I have now embedded my About.Me page where I can and the next time I want to update my platforms all I have to do is update my About.Me page and everywhere else is updated too.
Most web-savvy business owners have discovered the power of tapping into social media. But are you going far enough?
Don’t get me wrong, if you are active on the big social networks you’re on the right track. Statistics from Web Fuel revealed that in 2011 50% of Canadians were active social media users. 86% of those had Facebook accounts, with Twitter and LinkedIn gaining in popularity too.
Check out The Social Habit by Edison Research and you’ll find a similar story in the US, where over 50% of the population have a social network profile. Again, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn come out on top.
If you’re active on all three networks, these stats might reassure you that you’ve got social media covered. But you could still be failing to reach cultures different from your own, which will let you down when it comes to overseas business.
