I didn’t preorder the Apple Watch, or stand in line the day it came out. But I read every article about it, and when someone suggested that it would complement my “personal cloud,” I eventually felt compelled to buy one. I wear it every day, possibly out of determination to get something out of the…

Stay on top of Online Marketing trends! Here are the latest social media marketing, SEO, and content headlines you’ll want to read for the week of January 18th, 2016, curated by The Social Campfire:
Headline 1 – Google’s Major Ranking Algorithm Update is Confirmed
Google has confirmed a core ranking algorithm update, fresh for first quarter 2016. Most webmasters were expecting a Penguin update on January 12th. Not so – after a little digging, all signs pointed to a core or Panda-related change.
In a nutshell, the core ranking algorithm update did not refresh Panda scores, it’s been decided that Panda does not update in real time, and it’s become clear that Panda will now become a part of Google’s core ranking signals. For more on Panda, click here.

The Word of the Year for 2015 is technically not a word at all.
That’s right – the 2015 Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year goes to – Emoji.
Pretty fitting indeed. The fun-loving, creative message-spurring emoji has become one of the hottest and most beloved topics – and activities – of the year.
The concept of the emoji actually first started in 1999, invented by a Japanese telecommunications planner. Inspired by comics and street signs, the name comes from the Japanese words for picture and character.
Our thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out to the victims and families of last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris. We stand with you. May peace prevail and may your hearts be healed.
After several moments of shock and silence on Friday evening, it finally registered within my consciousness, a nightmare in reality – the City of Lights, the City of Love, had been attacked by terrorists – the most heinous massacre of Parisians since World War II. We Americans, never the same since 9/11/01, know the pain of mass tragedy and the palpable fear for safety all too well.
Such acts of hatred are chilling to the marrow.
How could any living person commit such devastating, evil acts against another human being? What’s more, the people shot, injured and killed – they were eating dinner, enjoying a rock concert, watching a football match, sharing their Friday night with each other. This attack was symbolic of war with a capital W on the very essence of the pursuit of happiness, the pursuit of France’s, and the Western world’s, hopes and dreams, sending the country, and the world, into mental and emotional chaos.
Is Everyone OK?

What’s hot around The Social Campfire in Social Media this week?
- MailChimp’s analysis of over 40 million emails uncovered the 10 most effective subject lines, with a 60-87% open rate on average.
- Have you ever posted something regrettable on social media? Short-lived Jeb Bush CTO Ethan Czahor did, which led to his resignation and, as a result, the inception of a new app, Clear. The app connects to your social media accounts, algorithmically searches for offensive terms, and presents a report that helps you clean up your profile.
- NPR discusses how social media (specifically, Twitter) can help track a tornado’s path of destruction — but will false tweets and demographic challenges complicate the effort?
- Apple Watch is here — this review article rates the top social media apps for Apple’s new product just as it launches today.
- And finally, part of our Weird News edition — if you live in Granby, Quebec, Canada, you may need to watch what you say about the police on your Facebook profile. The municipality outside of Montreal is “seeking the right to issue fines ranging from $100 to $1,000” to people who insult the police department or even municipal employees on social media.

Besides the fact that the Big Four was a big part of my world a couple of years ago, I am inspired by this hiring because of the sheer difficulty for a woman thus far to attain such a prestigious position in the Big Four world. Its culture is interesting, to say the least…at times, a mirror of the fractured yet current male-driven American business culture as a whole. Despite all that, strong, very capable women in these prestigious firms and in business of all sizes across the country continue to root themselves deeply in the foundation of the American business infrastructure.
