Facebook Frenzy: Who Is Cashing Out?
We had heard that Goldman Sachs had sold most of its stock on the first day that Facebook traded. Most individuals point to Morgan Stanley for overvaluing the IPO, including Henry Blodget, CEO and Co-Founder of Business Insider, who mentioned that Facebook should be trading as low as the range of $17-24.
With the market unrest and all the TV channels tracking Facebook, it is interesting to learn who sold pre and post the IPO. This infographic provides valuable insight into the VCs and private investors, who have sold out and those that believe in its social mission.

A Marketer’s Guide To Pinterest

Today, Pinterest has become the 3rd largest social media site based on its huge popularity with women, as well as its unlimited potential as a marketing tool for businesses. Although it has experienced a slump in daily average users in April, it continues to remain a great way for companies and brands to market themselves. “Pins” help companies promote their products, develop their brand personalities, drive tremendous referral traffic to their websites, and gain exposure among the Pinterest community. Now, MDG Advertising has produced an engaging video highlighting the facts, figures, and findings from its popular “Pin It To Win It” infographic.

The video details the social site’s demographics, growth, and potential to drive abundant traffic to company websites. Pinterest is especially popular with the most highly coveted markets—about 60 percent are female and 80 percent are in the 25 to 54 age demographic. Plus, Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Google+, LinkedIn, and YouTube combined.

The video goes on to cover the brands, both large and small, on board the pinboard phenomenon, such as Whole Foods, Etsy, West Elm, and Real Simple. These companies reflect the cooking, décor, and crafts interests that are prevalent among the Pinterest audience.

In addition, the video helps marketers navigate Pinterest’s features and terminology by demonstrating the “pin,” “repinning,” and “board.” It also shows how companies can leverage Pinterest for maximum response and referral traffic, whether by improving their image quality or promoting more than just a product line.

Six Degrees of Student Debt.

A generation crippled by payback terms; where education is secondary and payback is primary. This thought sounds depressing, but is very real. Student debt has surpassed $1 trillion and the average lifetime to payback has changed dramatically.

Back in 1993, only 45% of students borrowed loans for school. Today, that number has reached 94%. The average debt hovers around $24,000, with 10% owing more than 54% and 3% owing more than $100,000. If you are not responsible for your own payments, then this maybe something to overlook. But, for all those responsible for their own debt, this hampers not only their entrepreneurial spirit to take on more risk, but it has left them bitter as the terms for the loans have spiraled out of control. 

Many anti-traditional revolutionists have called for the “higher education under microscope” treatment. Is all that debt really worth it? If tuition can rise by 8% YoY, but wages rise only 5% since 2001, there is a very real problem. Maybe these business models have become antiquated. Young speakers like Nikhil Goyal, at 16, have already expressed alternate methods to education, calling for a “learning movement”. Maybe, we can finally accept the dropout way of life; atleast then we can control all the terms.
