  • How to TAG people on Facebook who are not Friends

    If you have a photo on Facebook that features multiple people and you would like to tag them all, even the ones who you are not friends with, there’s a way you can. Normally, when you begin to tag photos, a list of your friends appear as soon as you begin typing. But type the name of someone that is NOT your friend and nothing shows up. The photo will still have the name listed as being in the photo, but it won’t be a link in the same way a tag is. The solution is to add the “@” symbol before the name. Instead of “Jane Doe,” try typing “@Jane Doe.” As long as one of the two of you doesn’t have the other blocked, you will have just tagged them in your photo!

  • Lifting the Curtain on Live Events

    The data is in and interest is up: More people are attending live events—concerts, sports and theater—than ever before. How are they researching and buying tickets to these events? Google worked with Ipsos MediaCT to find out. The good news for marketers is that ticket purchasers are always “in market.” If they’re not attending an event, they’re looking toward the next one. (Sometimes they’re even doing both simultaneously thanks to mobile.) There’s huge opportunity for brands to surround and own the conversation when it comes to ticketing and interest in live events as shown in this infographic.
