13 buzzwords that need to die in 2013 If "dynamic," "viral" or "social business" are part of your regular vocabulary, it's time to bid them farewell. Here's why.

Two Big Mobile Trends for 2013

2013 marks the increased momentum of MOBILE:  Two trends to watch in the New Year?  Mobile Video and Sponsored Stories.

According to this, benefits of mobile video include:
  • Boosting the customer experience
  • Increased ROI with customized video content
  • Increased brand loyalty
  • Increased content share on social media

Great strategy!
