Blogs can be useful by:
1. Providing readers information they can't receive elsewhere
2. Posting helpful commentary on pertinent topics
3. Providing tips for people in niche markets (ie Mommy bloggers, hair bloggers, makeup bloggers etc)
4. Providing a much needed service like a message board, forum, events calendar and etc.
5. Selling a product that readers need/want that is associated with your blog's theme

When you upload a video on your fanpage FB has an option for you to add a link. You can then select the Buy Now, Learn More, or Watch More tab. I always select "Learn More" and that's what viewers see at the end of the video. When they click on those words it sends them to my website. The picture I posted above shows what it looks like. On FB if a video is interesting people are more likely to share it than commnent, which is what you want them to do.
This is something new FB is doing. I'm not sure if they'll make it a permanent feature for fan page owners but I hope they do. It really drove traffic to my site even without me having to do any extra work. I have another video that was shared over 10,000 times with hundreds of comments. It increased traffic to my fan page and blog.

That is a pretty high ratio of shares to views but not many comments given the number of views.
I too have noticed a ton of video, but I never watch any (but I deliberately minimize my enagement of Facebook, so I'm no a typical user).

I never did write the Facebook article. But I will say that Facebook has brilliantly exploited some very basic needs and desires of people. It really make it hard for people to understand why a handful of massively dominate sites are not good for the internet as a whole.
For anyone running a web-based business (not based upon social media marketing), and who is paying attention, this is abundantly obvious. The general public is perfectly satisfied in a world dominated by Facebook, Google, Amazon, Wikipedia and the sites they own.
Basically the article is not worth writing :-( less

Words to my teacher peers, had an interesting discussion with my students about weight, diet and exercise. Please encourage your students to ask questions and even if it is personal remember they are relying on you for honest answers. Had a young lady ask me why my belly was so big. This was NOT in a disrespectful manner but a honest question. She even said she was not being disrespectful, so remember to keep it real and not personal. The discussion centered on physical metabolism and exercise. I do not get a lot of exercise and this grew into a great discussion on aging and exercise. Be patient and not personal.
