The Pathetic, Sleazy World Of Facebook ‘Likes’

Companies who believe that having millions of “Likes” on Facebook is important to their bottom line have it absolutely wrong. ¬†“Liking” Coke or “Liking” The Avengers on Facebook isn’t going to make a person drink more Coke or see The Avengers more times – it…

NICKMOM – R.I.P.

It’s very possible Nickmom¬†will set the record for the world’s shortest running network. There is no other option for this laughable disgrace than a total cancellation. In fact, there are only three absolute certainties in this life: 1) The sun will rise in the east;…
