  3. I was looking through our past #SocialCafe twitter chats - a lot of them going back to 2012! And, remembering some impressive milestones... like being the first to combine the Twitter Chat with the Hangout. Since then, others have done it and we have gone simple :)
  4. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I'm in Alabama and people are having pipes freeze up all around me. It's been below freezing (teens and single digits) for several days in a row #SocialCafe
  5. Ok - I know we have been talking about goals and fun stuff for 2018, but I thought we'd try something a little bit different. #SocialCafe
  6. @conpsweeney I was going to say I try.. but that wouldn't come out quite right. I'll try to send some warm weather your way (if only that were possible) ;) #SocialCafe
  7. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I've been saying if it's going to be this cold in Alabama we should at least get some snow with it :) #SocialCafe - can you send us snow?
  8. @socialwebcafe Yeah, you know where they say good intentions pave the road to... #socialcafe
  9. Q1 Let's review our goals or objectives. What are your social media marketing goals, in general? #SocialCafe
  10. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Cold without snow? I'm trying to picture that... Seems we always had snow in MN #SocialCafe (that or mosquitos in the summer!)
  11. @conpsweeney @Kathrynclang True. It does get cold up there. That is why I stay down where it is warm :) But, the desert nights can get cold. #SocialCafe
  12. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Well . . . it depends on how you define mountains :) But yes, we do have the Appalacians (and so many caves it is crazy) #SocialCafe
  13. @socialwebcafe A1) Generate 1200 hours of consulting fees each from a sales funnel based on #socialmedia #socialcafe
  14. @MendyYButler I love that, especially the "really have a strategy" - that fits with tonight's topic :) #SocialCafe
  15. @socialwebcafe I didn't set a single social media goal this year. My plan is to focus on being relentlessly helpful and engaging with others and see where that gets me :) #SocialCafe
  16. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Doesn't that mean colder, or were we thinking at least getting the cold plus the snow? #SocialCafe
  17. @Kathrynclang Oh, that's right. Now I remember you mentioning the helpful. And, I love the relentless part ;) #SocialCafe I'm wondering if the no-goal is actually a better strategy than setting goals. Thoughts?
  18. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Nope - no snow anywhere in Alabama yet. Too dry. Although it is supposed to warm up by the weekend and then rain #SocialCafe
  19. A1 My "general" social media marketing goal or objective would be to be more productive. But, I think that is my goal every morning, so it may be a lifestyle. #addictedToEfficiency #SocialCafe
  20. @conpsweeney That would be great! I think all of us could use that sort of goal. And, I think you answered Q2 :) #SocialCafe
  21. @socialwebcafe I have a goal for blogging - and CoSchedule makes it so easy to do #socialmedia that I don't have to think about it #SocialCafe
  22. Q2 Now, how can we take our general goals, and quantify them? Like, how many Twitter Followers for 2018? How about January? #SocialCafe
  23. @conpsweeney Any thoughts on your strategies related to your funnel-based approach, Con? #SocialCafe
  24. I think it can be, then you're having fun. And hey, why have a business if you can't have a little fun??? #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/948375927209181184 
  25. @socialwebcafe @Kathrynclang You two do understand that you're preaching heresy from where I'm from? #socialcafe
  26. @Kathrynclang @socialwebcafe Sounds awfully boring! I like living where if you make it home alive at the end of the day you feel like you've really accomplished something! #socialcafe
  27. @Kathrynclang I have looked at CoSchedule but opted for another approach. What do you think of it? Any tips for others on the fence about selecting it? #SocialCafe
  28. @Kathrynclang And, that makes sense (not having to think about it). I think I over-complicate it (i.e. schedule posts out two days and then add the socializing portion under "final actions" two days later) #overThinking #SocialCafe
  29. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe We live on one of the deadliest highways in America - going to Walmart is like running the gauntlet :) So I totally get this #SocialCafe
  30. @socialwebcafe A2) My goal for @Twitter is 4K but I think they're playing with their aloorithms again! #socialcafe
  31. @MendyYButler I like that you are ready with a quantified answer :) And, you would almost be half-way there by February! That allows for a decent buffer. #SocialCafe
  32. @socialwebcafe I absolutely LOVE it - and was willing to cut some of my other spending to make it fit in my budget. It lets me write my post, schedule my social media for that post, and include images all without leaving the post page #SocialCafe
  33. Q3 What are some general ways that we could reach our quantified goals from Q2? #SocialCafe
  34. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Whoah - I'd want to stay off the road and order from Amazon.... even the pantry option. #SocialCafe
  35. @Kathrynclang That is awesome! All-in-one solution! I ended up programming in links to my other tools, from within the post (yes, as in tweaking the plugins). #SocialCafe
  36. @socialwebcafe A3: Break it down into bite-sized portions and then take it one bite at a time #SocialCafe
  37. Maybe I should up it then, lol. I like quality connections though, not looking so much for quantity. #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/948377756596764672 
  38. @Kathrynclang Would you like to be interviewed (video) about using Co-Schedule? #SocialCafe And, the same goes for Con and Mendy on whatever topic you like ;) #SocialCafe
  39. @socialwebcafe You can also add a function (it's a premium though) that will populate your social media with your tops posts. #SocialCafe
  40. @MendyYButler Exactly! You'll have better stories when you get to the Pearly Gates! #socialcafe
  41. I'm rekindling the SocialWebCafe Interviews again, in 2018. That is, in between dissertation writing (which is waaaaay more time than I thought)... lol #SocialCafe
  42. @socialwebcafe A3: I plan to blog more frequently. No more lazy idea dumps into lists, idea dumps must now become bonafide first drafts. #SocialCafe
  43. @conpsweeney @MendyYButler Oh, Con... you seriously have me ROFL. Though we don't want Mendy getting to those pearly gates any time soon... #SocialCafe
  44. @ShardaCBeharry @socialwebcafe I've started hand writing the first draft so I FORCE myself to do a second draft #SocialCafe
  45. @MendyYButler Excellent! I'll get some details to all of you, for setting it up (i.e. the appointment). Same thing for you, too, Sharda (Welcome!). #SocialCafe
  46. @Kathrynclang @socialwebcafe OK, but what about curating others' content, sharing it, and engagement? #socialcafe
  47. @socialwebcafe Sure - although I'm by no means an expert, I am definitely a fan! #SocialCafe
  48. Q4 How can we quantify or be more specific with our general goals from Q3? How can we help others to quantify their goals? #SocialCafe
  49. @socialwebcafe A3) Right now for me, it's playing with what I've got to see if I can get back to my earlier results #socialcafe
  50. Speaking of what @ShardaCBeharry mentioned about creating blog post drafts.. One of my goals is to create my posts before noon. #SocialCafe
  51. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe I do that organically. I've set google notices for my #keywords. But CoSchedule does let me do a #Social campaign as well (from within my website) #SocialCafe
  52. Already, I try to create my posts two days before publishing and then schedule them and I have three versions.. the draft.. the more evolved draft.. the final.. But, I'm adding "before noon" to the goal. That removes the stress of trying to finish at 11:59pm #SocialCafe
  53. @ShardaCBeharry @socialwebcafe I have end set up a notebook system (different colors for different websites and projects). I keep a boatload of sharpened pencils on my desk #SocialCafe #oldschool
  54. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney So, do you still use other tools, like Hootsuite, for your natural engagement (or other similar social media tools)? #SocialCafe
  55. Sure! How about how to enjoy life without getting yourself killed, at least not prematurely? ;) #socialcafe Seriously, how about monetizing #Twitter ?
  56. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I do my engagement on the sites themselves. I just use tools for posting #SocialCafe
  57. @MendyYButler I think that part about asking for help is soooo important. Good point, @MendyYButler For so long, I didn't ask for help, but I love helping others. It seems that true networking does have that component built into it. #SocialCafe
  58. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney You know.. come to think of it. I do that almost by accident.. like hanging out on Pinterest.. lol #SocialCafe
  59. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I'm trying to use TwitterChats as my social media time (although I sneak some time in through out the day as well). #SocialCafe
  60. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney I like that, too! Hey, I'm putting together an online #TwitterChat calendar (that I started in 2012.. lol) so if you have favorites, feel free to tweet the hashtags and I'll try to add them #SocialCafe
  61. Oh - this is so much fun, I hate for it to end. Officially, our 30 min #SocialCafe has hit the curtain. Unofficially, I am still around on Twitter (when I am supposed to be finishing a grad paper.. lol ) Thanks, all!
  62. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney I've started keeping my TwitterChats in my TweetDeck columns, that way I'm always ready for the chats! #SocialCafe I also watch my feed to see what others may be chatting
  63. @conpsweeney @ShardaCBeharry @socialwebcafe They just don't feel or sound the same - although I do use them when I am on the road (because the pencil must be sharp) #SocialCafe
  64. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney I do that :) I know there are cool Twitter Chat tools out there, but I really like using TweetDeck for it and love the column option, as well. #SocialCafe
  65. Have to run now! Thanks for joining everyone! See you all next week! #HappyNewYear #socialcafe
  66. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney @ShardaCBeharry Ok - now I am craving a pencil. I guess "craving" is not the right word... I promise I don't eat them :) #SocialCafe
  67. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney I wonder if it is a vertical versus horizontal thing.. Ok, overthinking it again. Yes, I love the columns and ability to drag and create collections. #SocialCafe #Tweetdeck
  68. I learned the #TwitterChat thing from Madalyn back in 2012 and then I started the Chat-then-hangout in 2013 and she adopted in 2015. Great example of helping each other out, like you mentioned ;) #SocialCafe
  69. @MendyYButler You are right! I need to do that. Thanks for the kick in the right direction :) #SocialCafe

  76. Welcome to #SocialCafe > our 30 min check in with social media marketing
  77. It looked like you were covering goals and plans for 2018 - #popular topic for January :). We are doing the same here at #SocialCafe
  78. Q1 What social media tools would you like to master (or learn) in 2018? #SocialCafe
  79. @conpsweeney Oooh.. that is a good list and I specially like the idea of GoogleAnalytics. I hadn't thought of that one. #SocialCafe
  80. What is more helpful.. an interview with a #GoogleAnalytics specialist or a how-to video on how to use Google Analytics? #SocialCafe
  81. Q2 What blogging or content creation tools would you like to master (or learn) in 2018? #SocialCafe
  82. @socialwebcafe Yes, thinking unthinkable thoughts! Would you like to hear my theories on #TimeTravel ? #socialcafe
  83. A2 I'm working on creating a tool that helps me refine the article writing process, speeding it up even more.. #SocialCafe
  84. @socialwebcafe I haven't worked on any content creation tools till now. I just wrote on word doc or google docs. Blogging tool - if time permits, I would want to look at Medium and Quora. #SocialCafe
  85. Q3 What social media strategies would you like to master (or learn) in 2018? #SocialCafe
  86. @akathmadevi I like the idea of covering both of those, Medium and Quora. Yeah, that is pretty common with writing with Word or Google Docs. #SocialCafe
  87. A3 I am always looking at how to be more effective. I want to be real and present but maximize my time efficiency #SocialCafe
  88. Q4 Anything else you would like to learn more about in 2018? #SocialCafe
  89. A4 I am all ears. I would love to hear what the #SocialCafe community has to say :)
  90. @conpsweeney Did we decide to focus on that for a month? I'm trying to remember what our consensus was ;) re: #bitcoin #SocialCafe
  91. @socialwebcafe Always looking for good #baristas Pay starts at the minimum wage but they pay for your college! #socialcafe
  92. @conpsweeney I wonder if they pay for doctorates :). Hey, minimum wage is a concern, but with the cost of universities, that is a big plus (to have college paid) #Starbucks #SocialCafe
  93. Thank you for joining us for #SocialCafe Love having you and looking forward to next week!
  94. @socialwebcafe Learning an instrument is on my list from very long time. I really hope I would start learning one this year. 😊 #SocialCafe
  95. @akathmadevi Oh, that is so cool! Do you have an idea of which one? If you have any questions about piano or flute, let me know :). #SocialCafe
  96. @akathmadevi Great choice! My sister played violin and I considered it at one time, but ended up "being different" and choosing the flute lol #SocialCafe

  98. @socialwebcafe The flute is also equally sweet. I believe Flute needs more energy and respiration capacity than Violin. So, a big ❤️ to you. #SocialCafe

  108. Welcome to #SocialCafe the 30 min check-in on social media marketing and YOU
  109. Gutted I'm missing the chats but I need sleep as I am shattered 😴 Send me your links and I'll give your newest posts a retweet, read and comment.. #beautytalk #socialcafe #blogelevated #usbloggers All comments returned on my blog posts  http://www.alishavalerie.com  💜✨
  110. For the most part, we are building a database (or list) of #TwitterTips together. I'll be sure to link to you in accompanying articles ;). #SocialCafe
  111. @conpsweeney Pretty much same old.. except hopefully without the "old." You? #SocialCafe
  112. We will break this into duplicate questions (except the 1st) so we have time to search Google if we want help coming up with tips (or helpful articles full of tips) #SocialCafe
  113. @conpsweeney That's great, Con! Would love to hear your success tips sometime :). #SocialCafe
  114. Q1 How would you summarize your knowledge/experience level with Twitter? #SocialCafe
  115. @conpsweeney I like that answer, Con! No matter what stage we are at, we could always leave room for learning! #SocialCafe
  116. A1: I'm beyond novice but not quite expert - sometimes I know just enough to get you in trouble :D #SocialCafe
  117. A1 I want to copy @conpsweeney but that wouldn't be nice. I suppose I'd say advanced, but I like how Con reminds us there is room for growth! #SocialCafe
  118. @Kathrynclang Hey Kathryn :). Yes, we could all say that, at least in a few areas (or more than that) of our lives.. lol #SocialCafe
  119. Q2 What is your first Twitter Tip to share (or five tips or a question)? #SocialCafe
  120. @Kathrynclang You bring the doughnuts next time and your secret is safe with us! #socialcafe
  121. @conpsweeney @Kathrynclang I try not to mess with the government :). #SocialCafe Well, most of the time, anyway.
  122. @conpsweeney Keep my secrets and I'll cook you dinner ;) We had roast and baked potatoes tonight #SocialCafe
  123. @socialcafechat A2) You have to work Twitter relentlessly in a disciplined manner if you want to see results.. My 55K followers just didn't show up unannounced one day! #socialcafe
  124. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Oh, you are soooo making me hungry. I just finished a bag of Doritos. #SocialCafe
  125. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat Good advice! And, I remember your play-by-play on that. I have a question for you on that, Con (next tweet) #SocialCafe
  126. A2: First Twitter Tip: Make time to engage with followers, commentors, and sharers - because it is all about relationships! #SocialCafe
  127. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat So, do you think you got a hold of the disciplined portion and that is why the next 40k came (or seemed to) faster than the first 10k? Or, do you think that is the nature of things..that it goes faster after 10k. #SocialCafe
  128. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Love to cook and love to have company :D Just let me know when you are coming for a visit #SocialCafe
  129. @Kathrynclang I need to do that more! I keep saying I am going to do that now and then somehow writing 6 blog posts per days takes it all #NoExcuse ! Thanks, Kathryn! #SocialCafe
  130. @socialwebcafe When someone follows me, I try to visit their website and not just their twitter page. I want to know more about you. #SocialCafe
  131. Q3 What is your second Twitter Tip to share (or five tips or a question)? #SocialCafe
  132. @Kathrynclang That is an excellent practice! I used to do that, as well. I want to know more than just that Twitter link. #SocialCafe
  133. Q3 This is obscure, but when setting up your sites and posts, check the Twitter validator if you are using Big Images #SocialCafe
  134. A3: Twitter Tip: Be authentically you - but also be faithful to your brand image (if you don't know what that image is then take time to define it) #SocialCafe
  135. @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat It went very quickly for a while But has slowed down I suspect all the brouhaha about #socialmedia is changing the game #twitter is definitely changing the rules of engagement #socialcafe
  136. @socialwebcafe It takes longer, but I set aside some time each week to do my follow backs so that I can make that investment. #SocialCafe
  137. @Kathrynclang I love that! Yes, be authentic. And, brand definition is important. I have a few too many, which is never something I would recommend! But, they each have their own identity/definition. #SocialCafe
  138. @socialwebcafe I think most creatives have several voices in their heads - it's managing them all and keeping them in line that makes life interesting ;) #SocialCafe
  139. A3: Twitter Tip: Stop worrying about the numbers and concentrate on the relationships - ONE relationship is more powerful than 1000 numbers #SocialCafe
  140. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat And, from what I am reading, both you and @Kathrynclang are examples of that patience and diligence! #SocialCafe
  141. Q4 What is your third Twitter Tip to share (or five tips or a question)? What would you like to know or learn? #SocialCafe
  142. @Kathrynclang Oh, that reminds me.. But, considering the next request for a tip is now, I'll add it to the tip. But, you get the credit for reminding me of it, @Kathrynclang ;). #SocialCafe
  143. A4: Twitter Tip: Define why you are doing it - and it has to be something beyond "they said I needed to do it." #SocialCafe
  144. A4 If you want some help in building Twitter relationships, you can use a tool like @commun_it to help you. Still build quality (versus numbers) like @Kathrynclang and @conpsweeney mentioned, but the tool does help #SocialCafe
  145. A4: Twitter Tip: Use tools and apps to support the engagement not to replace it. #SocialCafe
  146. @Kathrynclang You know, I wonder what the stats would show for those who do do something (let's say any particular social media platform) because someone told them they needed to do so... #SocialCafe
  147. @socialwebcafe I suspect that there aren't much to the stats because they give up. If you don't have a passion and purpose supporting the action then it's easier to give up #SocialCafe
  148. @socialcafechat A4) Experiment! Always strive for better results. Besides, #twitter changes enough that you need to be ready! #socialcafe
  149. @Kathrynclang I was just wondering if I started on Twitter because someone said I should :). But, like you said, the passion took over at some point, regardless of why I started. #SocialCafe
  150. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat ALL the platforms change all the time. If you are trying to read the cards then you will never beat the house. Invest in people - they are more powerful than platforms #SocialCafe
  151. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat And, these days, that could be said about most of the social media platforms, eh? Maybe #Facebook has some stability... but changes amidst the others, it seems #SocialCafe
  152. @socialwebcafe I fell in love from the first tweet. There was just something about the challenge of 120 characters :D #SocialCafe
  153. I love what @Kathrynclang says - Invest in People! That is great advice (that I'm borrowing) as the takeaway for today's #SocialCafe :)
  154. @Kathrynclang I miss that! Now with more characters, that challenge is not the same. (I babble too much! lol) #SocialCafe
  155. Well, as always, I am reluctant to say goodnight, but I am off to put this in a summary.. such great tweets by @conpsweeney and @Kathrynclang ! Thanks for joining us at #SocialCafe
  156. #socialcafe Have to bail now! Thanks for joining all! See everyone next week!
  157. @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat A1: I've been managing a brand Twitter account for years but because I'm the only one that cares about Twitter (not an exaggeration), we definitely aren't using it to its fullest potential. I'm looking forward to learning and showing what it can do! #SocialCafe
  158. @socialcafechat A2: Follow up. If you tweet a problem to/about a brand, give them praise if the issue is resolved. #SocialCafe
  159. @socialcafechat A3: Read your tweet out loud before you post it--you're more likely to catch any mistakes. For me, typos are the WORST on Twitter (I'll delete a tweet of mine, regardless of the impressions, if I discover it has a typo). Remember, there is no edit button for a tweet. #SocialCafe

  165. Welcome to #SocialCafe - our 30 min check-in on social media marketing (and blogging :) )
  166. How is everyone today? How has the week been going? Are you finding your 2018 groove? #SocialCafe
  167. I think personally I may have overshot that 2018 groove and getting a bit tired... but not burned-out, no, not that! #SocialCafe
  168. Ok - so my wife convinced me to participate in #SocialCafe... but I tend to be a lurker.. lol
  169. Hey, I have a really physical job and sore, but I keep balanced by playing my guitar when I have downtime... Great way to ease the mind :) #SocialCafe
  170. @socialwebcafe Yeah - I'd say you overshot it! When are we gonna make music? I mean pop, jazz, rock, you name it! #SocialCafe
  171. Oh, and she isn't going to brag about it, but Deborah (@socialwebcafe) was selected to be considered for submitting music to film productions. #SocialCafe
  172. Ok - so now we need to start singing with that guitar.. lol #SocialCafe
  173. @conpsweeney Hey Con - never have to apologize for that. You had a busy day! #SocialCafe
  174. Ok, now that we are all relaxed (or thinking about getting relaxed) let's find our topic, eh? Tonight is about blogging (specifically blogging organization ... so we have rest!) #SocialCafe
  175. Q1 Do you have a blogging plan or do you intend to develop one? (Or, do you blog, or do you intend to blog?) #SocialCafe
  176. @conpsweeney I predict you fall asleep before your head hits the pillow :) #SocialCafe
  177. @SteveCassady Thanks, Steve. I'll try to do more chatting and less lurking ;) I often lurk on #LinkedInChat ;) Room for improvement on my part going forward :) #SocialCafe
  178. @socialcafechat A1) More or less, I keep changing it! And, I do blog, posting weekly #socialcafe
  179. @socialcafechat A1 I do have a blogging plan. As with all things Deborah-related, it is more complicated than it should be, but it works for my complicated mind. #SocialCafe
  180. A1a I use a separate program, a database application I built through @FileMaker Developer. For others, I might suggest something like a spreadsheet. #SocialCafe
  181. @conpsweeney Whoah - I'm impressed that you fit supper in there! Then again, it is only 6p here, so supper hasn't happened quite yet. #SocialCafe
  182. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat You know.. I checked out your blog this evening, Con. I'm impressed. Now, do you have any advice for 32 blogs? I think I've narrowed it down from 50 to 32, but it can be overwhelming #SocialCafe
  183. @socialwebcafe Yes, it was like, enter house, wolf food, then log on and I still was late! #socialcafe
  184. Q2 What is your method or strategy for blogging organization? Or, what do you intend to do? (It can be another topic if you do not blog) #SocialCafe
  185. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Oh, your "late" was hardly worth mentioning... As far as I'm concerned, you were on time! #socialcafe
  186. @socialcafechat A2) I limit myself to #socialmedia and try to take my topics from questions or problems that my clients have recently had #socialcafe
  187. @socialcafechat I plan a calendar of posts; I have 3 going at once, doing the bulk on the 3rd, the refinement on the 2nd, and then finalize the 1st for publishing. That is 3 versions of ea post. So, with 3 posts in the works, that is 9 revisions x 32 blogs. Oh, dear, I am crazy! #SocialCafe
  188. And, where do I fit music in there? Still waiting... alter ego @socialwebcafe ! #SocialCafe
  189. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat How did you know? Oh, yeah, those mentions of the "up all night" in Skype... yeah, I only sleep about 3 hrs a night.. My brain never turns off completely... lol #SocialCafe
  190. @DeborahE Yes, I talk to myself.. lol Who else when everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing and sleeping at night? #SocialCafe
  191. Q3 Where are some areas that you need help in keeping things on track, whether it is blogging or something else (so that you get that rest!) #SocialCafe
  192. As long as you don't get into arguments with yourself and lose! #socialcafe
  193. Maybe I could write a country song about it... not sleeping... the dog growls (or snores)... Nah, I'll stick with #Jazz :) #SocialCafe
  194. @conpsweeney Nope... Though, I did ask @seasiderecords to argue with me while I drove home on the 405 because I would get too sleepy. The arguments kept me alert :) #SocialCafe
  195. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Yeah, and when she got home it was like, "Was that a real argument or are we ok?" and i'd give her a hug and we'd live happily ever after that #SocialCafe
  196. A3 I need to realize that some blog posts don't have to be books or magazine articles. They can be commentaries on fascinating YouTube videos, or reviews of products - wise use of time #SocialCafe
  197. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe At least they were kind arguments, relatively low-key :) And, never real ones. #SocialCafe
  198. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Never. Plus, it is difficult when she is in the car and I am at home on the cell... lol >> All hugs when she got home :) #SocialCafe
  199. A4 I have a question... What do we think about 30 min Twitter Chats? Originally it was to incorporate our hangouts... And, there is always the availability of free flow chat... #SocialCafe
  200. Going to bail now before I embarrass myself! Thanks for joining everyone! See you next week! #socialcafe
  201. @conpsweeney Have a good one and thanks so much for being a part of #SocialCafe tonight even though you need rest from your hectic day. Definitely appreciated, Con!
  202. That wraps up the official part of #SocialCafe We are here for any other random chat, but be sure to join us for the official #SocialCafe Same Time Next Week 6p PT / 9p ET
  203. @socialwebcafe That will be a good one. You mean google hangouts? If so, why not Facebook live? #SocialCafe
  204. @akathmadevi Yep - we were the ones who started the combo of Twitter Chats and Hangouts (back before Facebook Live) but we are considering Facebook Live :) We were the pioneers in that arena here at #SocialCafe :)
  205. @akathmadevi Yay - will do! In fact, I just contacted one of my associates about it ;) Thanks! #SocialCafe

  212. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney Well - let's just say that if you are having a "discussion" with a company you might not want to mumble "well THIS will make a good story" :D #SocialCafe
  213. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Ah... gotcha... yeah, I've done that a couple of times.. And, even ended up writing some stories :) #SocialCafe #LinkedInChat
  214. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe The more annoyed I am the more likely you end up as a body in one of my novels :D #LinkedInChat #SocialCafe
