The Cliff Ravenscraft Show | Take Your Message, Your Business and Your Life To The Next Level show

Summary: Tools To Manage Who You Follow on Twitter In episode 276, I shared how Robin Dunbar and Michael Hyatt influenced my decision to make a radical change in the way that I use twitter. If you have not yet heard that episode, I encourage you to check it out. In this week's extended social media segment, Erik Fisher and I discuss three main tools that you can use to evaluate the people that you follow on Twitter. I have personally found these tools to be extremely helpful in managing my Twitter experience. - ManageFlitter.com - TwitCleaner.com - DMCleaner.com   Is Facebook Extorting Your Mom? Back on June 16th, I released episode 264 where I shared that Facebook was using what seemed like Mafia Tactics with their "pay to promote your page posts" program. This week, Erik Fisher joins me for our Social Media segment to discuss our thoughts on the fact that Facebook has now rolled out "pay to promote" to personal profiles, going so far as to give you the option to pay to promote the pictures you upload to your Facebook account. Let us know what you think about this in the comments section below.   #PleaseDontKillFeedburner Website I've already shared in my blog post and in last week's episode that I don't believe, for even a moment, that Feedburner is going away. Despite this, there are still many folks who have worked up quite a bit of anxiety over the matter. Personally I got a kick out of the wonderful humor behind the site http://pleasedontkillfeedburner.com. If you are one of those who are still worried, you might want to consider joining their Twitter campaign. My favorite suggested tweet? "Google, keep Feedburner alive and I'll start using Google+ #pleasedontkillfeedburner."   Personal Plug of the Week This week's personal plug of the week is the Let's Reverse Obesity podcast from John Bukenas. I first shared John's story in episode 274. I received many requests from folks who wanted me to provide updates from John's inspirational journey. I'm excited to announce that his podcast is now online and he's off to a great start. I encourage you to check out the podcast. If you enjoy it, please let John know that you heard about it from Podcast Answer Man.   8th Annual Podcast Awards Nominations Open Till October 15th The nomination process for the 8th Annual Podcast Awards is now open.
