Twitter Updates for 2007-12-12

  • Heading off to the Utah social media dev garage #
  • @newspapergirl yuck! Well you should stay home and rest #
  • at the Utah Social Media Dev Garage with @jeffbarr – 28 people here so far! #
  • @robertmerrill would you like my seat? #
  • @robertmerrill – wait, you’re right in front of me. I thought you were saying you were in the hall #
  • @davidlaplante you’re welcome 🙂 #
  • Great Social Media Dev Garage guys! Thanks for coming, and joining in “the Social”. Thanks @jeffbarr for such a great presentation. #
  • Writing blog entries about last night’s event (anyone have anything they want me to include in the Google Code blog for my guest entry?) #
  • @scobleizer congrats and good luck on your next venture! #
  • Bebo launches new platform – “100% compatible with Facebook platform”, supports OpenSocial too. Nice!: #
  • @robertmerrill it was good to have you there! #
  • more big news coming up if a deal I’m working on comes through… #
  • Google makes first initial commit to shindig, making it possible for new sites to start hosting OpenSocial apps: #
  • @biznickman enjoyed your last post on allfacebook. I see you’re coming to terms with my thoughts on LinkedIn being a big announcement 😉 #
  • just got an email from a recruiter wanting me to take a job, asked how they found me, they answered “We spotted you on Monster back in 2006” #
  • Facebook opening up their platform – I agree with @biznickman – this is huge! – #
  • The Facebook platform opening is big for existing Facebook developers and those that want to build their network from the ground up. #
  • Open Social will still be utilized by other platforms that compete with Facebook though, bringing developers to both worlds. #
  • My opinion? Facebook may still be forced into using OpenSocial. #
  • @biznickman do you think MySpace or the other big 5 will actually consider using Facebook’s platform to build their platform off of? #
  • @robertmerrill I’m referring to the top 5 social networks – #
  • @biznickman you’re right about Bebo. LinkedIn probably won’t, Orkut won’t, MySpace won’t – that leaves a lot of developers using both #
  • @biznickman the other option is the competing networks needing to incorporate some of both platforms to compete #
  • @biznickman that’s a great point. Google is still way behind on the backend. I hope they would consider both. #
  • @biznickman I was wondering the same thing – interesting that both announcements came the same day #
  • Google guest post sent off to Google. Now to write on my own blog. Still need to finish last chapter of the book! #
  • @utah what was the name of the guy that has the binary 2008 countdown? #
  • Stay N’ Alive’s blog review of last night’s Social Media Dev Garage Mtg: #
  • “Facebook Stalkin'” – thanks @jasonalba!: #
  • @ericlitman we’re just going to miss each other. I’m heading to LA tomorrow. #
  • @biznickman good luck on the Social Times event! Wish I was still back in Virginia so I could attend. #

Jesse Stay has been a pioneer in the space of social media marketing since before it was called "social media marketing". Originally a software developer, Jesse built a tool called which helped brands like Pepsi, Brittany Spears, and MC Hammer grow their social media presence, and before he knew it brands were coming to him for help to grow their presence in very unique ways. His tool was featured on almost every tech blog and even mainstream news sites like New York Times, Techcrunch, and Mashable. Jesse also spent a brief period working FOR Facebook, Inc., helping them to build out their documentation to help companies integrate Facebook Connect into their websites and mobile apps. Jesse took his skills and helped the LDS Church kick off most of its social media programs. While there he helped launch the award-winning "I'm a Mormon" marketing campaign with global reach worldwide in the millions of views and followers. Jesse established new global programs at the Church to further grow its reach amongst both members and non-members of the Church, working with every department of the Church, also including entities like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Brigham Young University. He also helped the Church navigate its voice and presence during the Mitt Romney Presidential campaign due to the significant attention the Church was getting at the time. He established the social media advertising techniques and strategies employed at Deseret Digital Media growing over 20 million fans across their news properties in just 6 months, and was featured on AdWeek for his success. As founder and Principal of Stay N Alive, Jesse has developed very unique techniques in social media advertising to help organizations grow presences, within months on minimal budgets, into hundreds of thousands of highly relevant and engaging fans and followers. He designed and teaches social media advertising at LDS Business College. He has helped grow sales, and has a belief that yes, you CAN measure social!
