Nice to meet you, Kevin Bacon | Weekly Roundup

  • How many degrees of separation are there between you and Kevin Bacon on Facebook? The answer is now 3.74. On SocialMediaToday, Nikki Peters breaks down Facebook’s new study and how closely we’re all connected.
  • If you’re not using Google Analytics yet for your website and blog then now is the time to get started. Allyson Kapin, from Frogloop, fills us in on the scoop for the new and improved features, including mobile tracking.
  • Don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater, but make sure you throw out the bathwater. In a series on Fast Company about user experience, Victor Lombardi explains why it’s important to get rid of the things that aren’t working, but remember to keep the parts that people love. Definitely worth bearing in mind before you start designing that new campaign or brochure.
  • Are you one of the Baby Boomers thinking of starting your own 501(c)(3)? Think again! Tom Belford urges his Agitator readers to consider Mark Rosenman’s opinion piece in the Chronicle of Philanthropy before you start soliciting for that first check.
