Twitter’s Redesign Includes Brand Pages

New Twitter Brand PageNot to anyone’s surprise, Twitter has begun rolling out their version of a brand page along with a complete platform redesign. As a social media marketing manager myself, I welcome this change with open arms and cannot wait to see if and how these new pages change the Twitter landscape. Since this will be a gradual unveiling, not everyone will have access to the new pages just yet. Some of the larger corporations such as PepsiCo, McDonalds, Jet Blue and several others have been given the chance to use the new layout, so we will use their redesigned pages to explain what new features you can expect to see.

Facebook Fan Page Redesigned

Facebook has a way of temporarily stirring up commotion throughout its community only a few times per year.

The Beauty of Blogging

Beauty of BloggingWhile creating and building Progressive Media Concepts’ blog sites, our team came across the differences, unique functions, and importance of WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger. First off, each blog offers a variety of themes that are designed for use on their specific site. As a blogger, you have the option to choose from an array of free templates, or pay a one-time fee for a theme that is not as widely used in Blogland. The themes provided by WordPress and Tumblr are formatted in such a way that there is little room for layout customization.

You are capable of placing gadgets anywhere you want with Blogger, which helps to de-clutter the page and give it a more symmetrical look.
