Social Media Pubcast by Jon Loomer (management and marketing)

Dennis Yu of BlitzMetrics is one of my go-to people regarding advanced Facebook advertising topics. He is deep in it, and often has access to tools that very few are using or knowledge of tools that aren't yet released. This is a must listen!

Topics include the potential impact of Partner Categories and creative ways to realize incredible results from Custom Audiences. We also dip a bit into where Dennis thinks Facebook is heading.

Some links and topics mentioned:

The Pubcast got an upgrade! New intro music, new structure, new fun. Take a listen and let me know what you think!

In this week's Pubcast, I drink at the virtual bar by myself. But there's still plenty of fun stuff to talk about, including...

Social Media Marketing World

I had an amazing time in San Diego at this event sponsored by Social Media Examiner. Virtually everyone was there, and I had an awesome time. I share what I learned and how this event was inspiration for me to make changes to the Pubcast -- as well as what other changes may be coming.

Update to Promoted Posts

Many are reporting that Facebook has removed the ability to target Fans only with Promoted Posts. Is this a big deal? I break it down.

Also read my blog post on this here: Facebook Promoted Posts: Fans Only Option Removed [DO THIS]

Partner Categories

Facebook has quietly rolled out a potentially poweful advertising tool that will allow marketers even more ability to target the users they want with Partner Categories. Listen to my thoughts about this new feature.

Ryan Hanley stopped by the Social Media Pubcast to discuss "Content Warfare" and the battle for attention. This pretty much became a Marcus Sheridan lovefest, but we did find time to talk about some interesting topics that include blogging strategies, effectively using video and the potential impact of Twitter cards.

Jeff Ferguson of Fang Digital visited the pubcast today and we got crazy nerdy with stats. We talked about the similarities between what the Moneyball Oakland A's meant to baseball and how social media marketing needs a similar movement to help the industry start focus on the right metrics. We also talked about the dismantling of SEO and how that industry is also in for an awakening.

Jeff is giving away an ebook on social media marketing, free to my listeners. >> Get that here! <<

Mike Maghsoudi of PostRocket pulled up a barstool, becoming the first ever two-time guest on the Pubcast. We cover a wide range of topics, including:

* The new Facebook Timeline and outdated interests
* Scams and annoying Facebook users
* How I think the new News Feed could help Pages that suck
* Why Mike thinks that the Following feed could lead to mass unliking
* How big, beautiful photos could lead to a drop in engagement
* Graph Search, utility vs. creepiness and the evolution of privacy
* We finish our battle over the importance (or lack thereof) regarding Reach
