Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Barack Obama Head-to-Head in Internet Popularity

30 Dec
Obama, Bieber, Rihanna - Popularity

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 30, 2012

In recent weeks, PopTrending.com has observed a three-way convergence of the popularity trends of Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Barack Obama. They each hold prevalent scores in News, Social Media, and Web popularity. Currently, Barack Obama is holding-on to a narrow lead with Bieber and Rihanna trailing close behind.

President Obama dominated the news at the height of the election in November, and had a considerable presence in the blogosphere and on social networking sites. However, in early December, as post-election news coverage waned, and campaign staff tapered off their efforts to pump-up the President’s social media trends, pop sensation Justin Bieber briefly surpassed Obama’s long-held lead as the most popular person in PopTrending.com’s daily ranks.

Obama quickly regained his position, mainly as a result of News coverage of the fiscal cliff, but currently appears to be dipping back down to levels where he may once again be overtaken. In the meantime, superstar singer and actress Rihanna has surged in recent PopTrending.com ranks and is now well-situated in the number two slot, bumping Bieber down to number three.

Rihanna is by the far the most popular public figure on Facebook with over 65 million Likes, adding an average of 53,000 new Likes per day this month. Of the three, Justin Bieber has the strongest Twitter following, with over 32 million followers, recently adding an average of 35,000 new followers per day. Obama currently has approximately 35.5 million Likes on Facebook, and just over 25 million Twitter followers.

President Obama continues to dominate the news with his name appearing in an average of nearly 100,000 online news reports every day this month, compared to approximately 11,000 for Justin Bieber, and just under 10,000 for Rihanna.

As the year 2012 comes to a close, it is difficult to predict which of these pop culture icons will prevail in this tight race to top PopTrending.com’s daily rankings of the most famous people. Stay tuned for updates as we enter the New Year to see who ends up on top.

PopTrending.com uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate daily popularity scores for hundreds of celebrities and famous public figures based on dozens of metrics including frequency of appearance in the news, activity on social networking sites, popularity in search engines, and presence in popular web content.

9 Resolutions Every Business Owner Should Make in 2013

30 Dec
Owner of Pigtails and Crewcuts

Wade Brannon, owner of the Pigtails & Crewcuts franchise

Roswell, Georgia (PRWEB) December 30, 2012

According to the experts, business growth will continue in 2013. A report from the National Association for Business Economics predicts the economy will expand by 2.1 percent in 2013, compared to 2.2 percent in 2012. When it comes to franchise businesses, a similar scenario is taking shape, with a 1.4 percent growth projected, compared to a 1.5 percent increase in 2012, according to the International Franchise Association. Franchises, which account for 3.4 percent of the GDP, are expected to add 162,000 jobs to the economy before 2014.

Any growth is good, according to Wade Brannon, president and owner of the children’s hair salon franchise Pigtails & Crewcuts, based in Atlanta, Georgia, which has more than 30 locations across the country. But Brannon warns business owners that as the economy continues to improve, the hard work has just begun. “It appears we’ve weathered the worst of the storm, and for most of us business owners it’s been a humbling experience,” says Brannon, who formerly served as the senior vice president of Heavenly Ham, which he helped grow to more than 200 locations in the United States before it was sold in 2002. “Now that we’re starting to see some consistent growth, it’s more important than ever to capture that momentum and take your business to the next level.”

Brannon shared the following resolutions that every business owner should make in 2013.

1. Take control. One of the best things about owning your own business is it’s yours. It’s easy to forget that during day-to-day operations. As you move into 2013, don’t just be a business owner, act like a business owner. Commit to making decisions that are best for your business.

2. Ignore the doomsday hype. Between the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff, 2012 has been rife with panicky buzzwords. There’s no telling what doomsday scenarios will crop up in 2013. Whatever those situations are, keep your nose to the grindstone and move your eyes away from the television. Focus on the important tasks at hand and don’t seek out additional worries.

3. Do less with more. In business, the beginning is always the most challenging. Once your workplace is up and running, adding to the existing framework can actually get easier. Consider opening a second, third or even fifth location. With just a little more effort, you may be able to multiply your returns.

4. Distinguish yourself. You’ve committed to running your own business, now take it seriously and succeed. Research needs in the community that your business can fill. Talk to your clients and ask if they’re satisfied with what you’re offering. Really listen to their feedback and apply it towards building your own successful brand—one that is unique from any other.

5. Promote, promote, promote. Every business owner should be active on social media. With so many choices out there—Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.—business owners have access to a constantly expanding audience. Update your status frequently, tweet specials, blog about your business and remind people of the ways that you can help them out.

6. Give back to your community. Without the support of your community, your business truly is nothing. Give back in the best way you can, whether it’s donating products for an auction, serving on a board or simply volunteering your time. Not only is this a feel-good thing to do, it also helps make your business more visible and introduces you to people you might not otherwise meet.

7. Delegate. Running a business is no small task, and it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Make lists of areas where you excel and areas where you don’t. Then, figure out if there’s a way to hand off duties to someone else, whether it’s an employee or a subcontractor. Business owners are naturally doers, so delegating can be one of the most challenging tasks. But since it frees you up to follow your true talents, it can also be one of the most rewarding.

8. Be consistent. Whether you’re a franchise, a large business or a mom-and-pop store, your customers all want the same thing: consistency. Devise a business protocol and work to ensure that you and your employees are on the same page. Your branding, messaging, services, products and even your success depend on consistency.

9. Know your numbers. How can you strive to do better if you don’t know where you stand now? Data is the lifeblood of your business. Know it. Study it. Understand it. Set goals to improve upon it. And if this isn’t an area where you excel, find someone who does and bring him or her on board to help develop your 2013 success plan.

Social Media Security | Background Checks Online

 

Quote startOver one billion public records now exist in the company database.Quote end

San Francisco, California (PRWEB) December 25, 2012

The Inteligator.com company now provides access to its database of billions of records online to the public. A new feature that can be used through this search company is a social media background check. One feature that social media companies lack is a security detail that provides more public information about user accounts.

A person can now conduct a check for criminal histories, arrest records, marriage records and other public records that are typically used to deliver this usable data.

Over one billion public records now exist in the company database and these records can be searched online. This new public access feature is designed to provide useful information to researchers that cannot find this data elsewhere online.

The Inteligator website provides secure access to its search system that is linked across national databases for data. A person with a criminal record that moves into a new state can still be located through this criminal search system if the public data is available. These security features are for private use and are not a substitute for employment related reviews.

An unlimited search feature is now added to the usable tools online. This tool provides both monthly and annual plans to make it an affordable option to adults. Apart from the background checks that are offered, a complete range of other helpful data can be accessed through the company system. Marriage and death records, property records, people trace services and other records can be located and printed through the new online system.

A preliminary search to provide a foundation for an in-depth report can be accessed on this page of the Inteligator website. This preliminary search tool provides the first point of reference that any adult researcher can use to discover if matches for names, phone numbers and other data exist in the company database.

About Inteligator Search

The Inteligator Search service is a new search tool that searches over one billion public records online. These records include marriage records, divorce records, sex offender records, criminal records, phone numbers and other information that could be useful to businesses or individuals trying to verify data through Inteligator Search online. This company website was originally launched in 2009 and frequent database updates are made to ensure that all data that is presented is as accurate as possible. The searchable database for this company can be used by any adult with an Internet connection or mobile device.

Getting Closer to the Customer:  A Challenge for the C-Suite

Getting Closer to the Customer is an Economist Intelligence Unit report which examines how the dialogue between customers and companies has changed in response to the advent of new communication channels such as social media and mobile

Based on interviews with 800 senior executives, including 244 CEOs from around the world, the study found that:
• The new communication reality has left companies in a state of flux–even confusion.
• Most companies have placed more importance on social media than on other channels, hindering a holistic response.
• Making a single individual responsible for managing communication channels reduces internal confusion and leads to a more coherent approach.

Barbados Goes Mobile for Travelers using Smartphones to Plan Holidays

21 Dec
Tourism Calendar for Mobile Travellers

Bridgetown, Barbados (PRWEB) December 21, 2012

The new mobile calendar for things to do in Barbados, WhatsOnInBarbados.com, is not just another calendar. It is designed for the future of mobile travel and solves one of the biggest issues in design and accessibility for the diverse range of devices and platforms for mobile.

The problem is that there are hundreds of mobile devices and operating systems. Building native Calendar apps (for an iPhone or an Android app etc) is not always the smartest way to go, as the cost of development and maintenance for all devices is unsustainable for a small team.

A web based Calendar is, on the other hand, universally accessible without having to download apps, which can be irritating for travelers who just want to get the news on things to do, now. Websites for mobile, however, are often too general and do not take advantage of the special features and resources of the different platforms and devices.

The solution is a smart web based platform that responds and configures itself to the device in an intelligent way. In this solution, the software not only reconfigures the information and graphics for each specific device it also accesses and uses native features like the date picker built into the device, just as a native app would.

Kathy-Lynn Ward, COO of AXSES (the company behind the BTE) and developer of a range of tourism technology including several other travel apps, says “Using HTML5 and the jQuery has helped us build a smart Calendar platform that can now be tweaked to work with every device with relative modest effort.”

What that means is that as new devices come out and old ones change, the smart system simply adapts to them. “It is a hybrid of the native app, like iPhone or Android apps, and a website approach”. says Ward. “The difference is that we program the information about events to display differently for each device and even for each orientation in a device.” It is a lot of work upfront but will save a lifetime of work in the future. It is in fact built for the future!

WOIB is the most widely used and most complete calendar of things to do in Barbados. THE BTE website, Barbados.org, is also the most extensive website of Barbados tourism and the most popular according to the Alexa competitive rank.

The BTE calendar has been a feature from early days starting in 1996. it has thousands of users and subscribers and a database of numerous attractions, activities, contacts and venues. The BTE has built a grass roots network with all media, tv, newspapers, hotels, local performers, restaurants, bands, tourism operators, museums, universities, theaters and locals who feed in details of vacation happenings on a daily basis. Much of the work in monitoring and creating the venues is automated and all of it is checked and approved in house.

The release of this app reflects What’s On In Barbados’ commitment to promoting the many events happening on the island to both locals and visitors. An increasing number of people are using the What’s On In Barbados platform (including the website, social media posts, Facebook app and weekly newsletter) to keep up with things to do on the island. The newsletter reach is currently 16,000 subscribers. For January to November 2012, there were 400,000 referrals from the What’s On website to view event descriptions, and an additional 25,000 clicks from social media posts.

With more people now having access to mobile phones than water and electricity, and more and more using mobiles while on holiday or to plan holidays from home, every tourism operator, hotel and destination absolutely MUST have a mobile app.
