This week was all about great social media marketing: From the end of like-gating on Facebook to some of the most impressive social media campaigns we have seen to date. When C&A brings Facebook to a paper magazine, or when Taco Bell dares to “black-out” all its social media, we feel our industry is going forth.
We read a lot about tips on how to get more followers on Twitter. This week we decided to take the matter in our own hands, with a true story and tips on how to really increase your following. It’s a true story and we know it, because it is our story.
