Karen Rubin talks about Facebook's widely-publicized launch of the Subscribe button and Twitter's announcement of Twitter Analytics. Let's talk.
Facebook has launched a Subscribe button that lets you follow the public updates of others, whether or not you’re Facebook friends. It also allows you to choose on a user-by-user basis how much or how little you want to be updated of a person's status, who is outside of your network. The Marketing Takeaway, which HubSpot provides is when publishing new content always see that you spread your reach as much as possibly by posting it to as many channels as you can. Be mindful of your keywords and use them accordingly.
