  5. @FleurdeB Sounds busy! So you had quite a few that came in on SuperBowl Sunday? #SocialCafe
  6. Consulting re social media, crowdfunding, etc. w a farmer friend who wants to expand & improve. #socialcafe
  7. @FleurdeB That sounds really interesting! Curious how that plays out. Great, innovative thinking! #SocialCafe
  8. Felt bad about taking the tow truck driver and mechanic away from the game, but they were done w us in time for the best part. #socialcafe
  9. @FleurdeB Oops... (blush) I was thinking, wow, busy, busy.. Belinda has a shop as well. Two on the same day? #SocialCafe
  10. I should've been an auto mechanic w my own shop & tow truck. Great line of work. #socialcafe
  11. This #SocialCafe Chat hour we be chatting about social media share buttons. #chattingNow
  12. Just this morning I saw a new art site's Twitter button wasn't working & suggested they go beyond just FB & Tw buttons. #socialcafe
  13. Q1 How do you insert social share buttons on your site/blog? (i.e. your designer does it, plugin, manual) #SocialCafe
  14. First thing I had farmer client do was open social media accounts. #socialcafe
  15. RT @socialwebcafe: Q1 How do you insert social share buttons on your site/blog? (i.e. your designer does it, plugin, manual) #SocialCafe
  16. A1 I am my own web dev. I have yet to learn plugins, so I'm doing it manually. #socialcafe
  17. RT @socialwebcafe: Q1 How do you insert social share buttons on your site/blog? (i.e. your designer does it, plugin, manual) #socialcafe
  18. My one and only blog is still at Blogger, but I'm planning a move to WordPress. Starting farmer out there, as well. #socialcafe
  19. @FleurdeB Yeah, In sharing, I've wanted to "fix" people's sites. Like I should talk, I pulled down my buttons to tweak them #SocialCafe
  20. @FleurdeB I used to use Blogger and I like the platform, but I wanted more granular control over the site and WP offers that. #SocialCafe
  21. I become especially disappointed when i find something i really like and there is not a "share" button for Pinterest. =( #socialcafe
  22. Since the convo about blogging to beginning & adv readers, I've been using that information, so thanks for gr8 topics, Deb! #socialcafe
  23. Hard for me to share some of my writings on Pinterest, b/c no pics or pics are wrong size. #socialcafe
  24. But my blog has FB, Tw, Pinterest buttons on upper right corner below header & others below each post. #socialcafe
  25. I need to do more original recipes on my blog so they'll pin when I promo. #socialcafe
  26. Q2 What social buttons would you recommend that everyone have on their site? #SocialCafe
  27. Thnx ;) RT @FleurdeB: Since the convo about blogging... Ive been using that information, so thanks for gr8 topics, Deb! #SocialCafe
  28. A2: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr, for sure. LinkedIN if they are more business, finance oriented. #socialcafe
  29. I used to want "all" control (dev from scratch), but why not use a great tool like WP. RT @FleurdeB: ...I like that term! #SocialCafe
  30. @FleurdeB that would be nice, I would luv to pin some and save them to try out! #socialcafe
  31. A2 I was going to put my answer, but @FleurdeB beat me to it. I especially like how you said LinkedIn for business #SocialCafe
  32. I became disenchanted w Reddit and Digg until I recently saw a bb chat there with @amandapalmer. That was pretty cool. #socialcafe
  33. @FleurdeB I haven't used Tumblr (probably hardly at all).. Could you share a little bit about how u use it? #SocialCafe
  34. A2: FB, Twitter, G+, Tumbler, and Pintrest (personal favorite). #socialcafe
  35. Particularly w crowdfunding, you've GOT to have all the buttons you possibly can. #socialcafe
  36. Do you think it is the content (recipe) or the pin (image)? RT @FleurdeB: I need to do more original recipes... #SocialCafe
  37. RT @socialwebcafe: @FleurdeB I havent used Tumblr (probably hardly at all).. Could you share a little bit about how u use it? #SocialCafe
  38. I don't rely on Tumblr as a share button on my blog yet, but post my writing there and get a significant amount of traffic. #socialcafe
  39. Lately, I'm beginning to get more followers on Tumblr, so if I can find a share button, I will certainly add it. #socialcafe
  40. In reality i don't have a Tumbler Account--but i sometimes read stuff others post..... #socialcafe
  41. My problem right now is my camera's broken, so I can't use Instagram yet. #socialcafe
  42. Do you think it is possible to have too many buttons? (i.e. design/layout) RT @moppetmissy: Yes! The more Buttons the Better! #SocialCafe
  43. I just started a tumblr but it is quite overwhelming at first #socialcafe Tons of stuff on there!
  44. MT @FleurdeB: I dnt rely on Tumblr as a share button on my blog yet, bt post my writing there & get significant traffic. #socialcafe
  45. and so many of my friends and colleagues are using Instagram heavily now that the hullabaloo has died down. #socialcafe
  46. I'm curious about crowdfunding RT @FleurdeB: Particularly w crowdfunding, youve GOT to have all the buttons you possibly can. #SocialCafe
  47. Was that Q2: Do you think it is possible to have too many buttons? (i.e. design/layout)? #socialcafe
  48. @MeganPihlaja Follow me on Tumblr & let me know where we met. I'll follow back. #socialcafe
  49. Hi Megan :) RT @MeganPihlaja: I just started a tumblr but it is quite overwhelming at first #socialcafe Tons of stuff on there! #SocialCafe
  50. i discovered crowdfunding when @amandapalmer was funding her World Art/Book/Music Tour. #socialcafe
  51. @MeganPihlaja Yes! I could be there for weeks and weeks, just reading everything on Tumbler. Soo much stuff! #socialcafe
  52. Now @amandapalmer is getting ready to do a TED talk as a direct result. More exposure for her fine and performing arts business. #socialcafe
  53. Uh, nothing short of impressive! RT @FleurdeB: @amandapalmer set a new record, asked for $100k, got $1.1M on @kickstarter. #SocialCafe
  54. Q3 What pet peeves would make your list, when using sharing buttons? #SocialCafe
  55. However, @kickstarter's drawback is that you either make your goal or get nothing. The crowdfunding universe is growing big time #socialcafe
  56. Each crowdfunding site differentiates itself from the rest with a single notable policy. #socialcafe
  57. I forget if it's Indeigogo or Rockethub that gives you a bonus out of their pocket when you make your goal. #socialcafe
  58. @FleurdeB Do u think it would be a better model to keep what u get? I suppose @kickstarter is trying 2 encourage more $ tht way #SocialCafe
  59. I like that idea! MT @FleurdeB: I forget if its Indeigogo or Rockethub gives u a bonus out of their pocket when u make ur goal #SocialCafe
  60. A3 Share buttons that are not share buttons or don't work. Share buttons that have default "via @ShareThis" instead of site #SocialCafe
  61. Indiegogo, scuse me. Always good to keep whatever you raise. #socialcafe
  62. The crowdfunding sites also cater to different crowds: arts, tech & design, education. #socialcafe
  63. Ugh. Tell me about it! I loved the "share" instead of just like. RT @FleurdeB: A3 I agree. FB button was a pain for me. #SocialCafe
  64. Shortlist: Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Rockethub, DonorsChoose, GoFund #socialcafe
  65. Thnx! RT @FleurdeB: Shortlist: Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Rockethub, DonorsChoose, GoFund #SocialCafe
  66. A3: On Pinterest, when a site show there is share buttons, but it don't work properly, or there isn't a picture. #socialcafe
  67. Crowdfunding highlights: Plan a project. Make an appeal video. Promote! Deliver donor incentives. Create finished product. #socialcafe
  68. @moppetmissy Yeah, the pinterest buttons are not plug-n-play I use a Wordpress plugin and then tweak it to do what I want. #SocialCafe
  69. And of all things, beyond Kickstarter, I learned about the rest while writing for a content mill! #socialcafe
  70. @FleurdeB Would love to see a crowdfunding project you are doing ;) #SocialCafe
  71. Actually, the farmer is my crowdfunding focus at the moment. He borrowed a digital camera w video & still functions. #socialcafe
  72. In love with these crowdfunding sites.How did I not know these existed? #socialcafe
  73. I haven't seen his family farm in decades, so he's gotta send me a tour first. #socialcafe
  74. From there, I'll script his appeal video and design the first crowdfunding project. #socialcafe
  75. @MeganPihlaja Funny how you can hear about things and then a light bulb goes off one day :) #SocialCafe
  76. @FleurdeB I am really intrigued by the crowdfunding for the farmer. Def need to send a link when it is up. #SocialCafe
  77. I only saw @amandapalmer's project because someone I was following RT'd it. Her energy & communications got me interested. #socialcafe
  78. Q4 Any tips for other bloggers, on share buttons or what works for you, or what you would like to see more of? #SocialCafe
  79. RT @MeganPihlaja: In love with these crowdfunding sites.How did I not know these existed? #socialcafe
  80. A cool thing about crowdfunding is that people from around the world donate different amounts, most often $25. #socialcafe
  81. A4 For the really techie people, check out YOURLS for URL shortening, to use in all your buttons. #SocialCafe
  82. You offer unique incentives for every donor level, priced just above retail value & of course worth more than your donor price. #socialcafe
  83. RT @socialwebcafe: A4 For the really techie people, check out YOURLS for URL shortening, to use in all your buttons. #socialcafe

  85. A4 I was going to remove my email subscription, but found a significant number of peeps on there. So I left it. #socialcafe
