Facebook announced the release of its Timeline feature last week, and the social network is buzzing about how beautiful it actually is. The new profiles take photos, videos and other content that you’ve posted and lay it out in two-column format (divided down the middle by a timeline). The new look of these profiles is a far cry from the profiles of yesterday, making them more pleasing by focusing on visual content that’s been published.
So what does this mean for brand pages? Although they haven’t done it yet, this article from Mashable includes some examples of what brand pages could look like with the new profiles, and I have to say it’s looking good.
As some of these examples suggest, the profiles could emphasize images, video and other visual elements, so it might be in an organization’s best interest to start posting more of this kind of content—that way, when the timelines take effect, you will be taking full advantage of the new design.
Think photos of your events, videos that tell a story, and compelling content that complements these visual elements.

YouTube has released a new feature that allows users to edit their videos after uploading them.
Editing options range from trimming a video clip and stabilizing a shaky video, to adding filters, boosting colors and adding a soundtrack.
Now there’s no excuse to not post videos on your YouTube channel! Even the most casual video shooter will find the editing feature easy to use and intuitive—no expert knowledge needed.
Check out this video explaining the new feature:
As if it’s not hard enough today for job seekers, often they have to visit what seems like a million different websites to search for job openings or post their profiles and resumes in places that may not give them the best exposure to employers.
Fortunately, job seekers are in luck with a site that makes the process less like a full time job itself . It’s also more efficient and a top choice for recruiters looking for new staff. I’m a huge fan of the site, and I wanted to share it with you.
Indeed.com aggregates available jobs from across the Internet. That’s right…from everywhere. So unlike some other job search sites that only show you positions for companies that have paid to post their openings, Indeed shows you ALL available jobs, and links you right to the website they came from.
Another cool feature for job seekers is Indeed allows them to post their resumes, and puts them into a clean, standardized format that employers can view on the site or download if they want to learn more about them. Based on the resume, Indeed matches job seekers with job openings appropriate for their skills and experience, and allows hiring managers for those jobs to contact them directly.
This site really opens up so many doors for job seekers. And in today’s tough job market, this is sure to be a welcome tool to anyone on the hunt for a new job.
