In this episode of Social Media Serenity, Cliff and Erik talk about the frustrations that they are experience with Facebook Pages. Cliff had recently done a blog post about his recent experience on this blog at http://goo.gl/nxxQP.

Last week, Facebook announced that they were making it possible for Businesses that started as a Profile to convert it over to a Page: http://t.co/mJ1Z99G.

This week, however, they have decided to take away that option. http://goo.gl/6xCLF

In this episode of Social Media Serenity we go over Erik’s new job description as Social Media Manager for Indiana Wesleyan University. We hope that this episode inspires many of the folks who are within the gspn.tv community who are quite familiar with the social media space to consider how they might create a new position for themselves in their company, or perhaps another, if it is where their true passion lies.

Also during this episode, we mention Fred From Long Island’s tweet that can be found at http://goo.gl/O9YQu. Regardless of what we say in the episode, there is no further need to ReTweet the message. Why not? Because @ChipotleTweets was listening and they did indeed contact me. In fact, I now have an email address of someone to contact. All of this took place within 90 minutes or so of us recording this episode. I have no idea where this might lead, but it was a lot of fun getting their attention. We’ll report more next week.

In this episode, Cliff and Erik actually spend more time talking other services than they did about Facebook and Twitter.

MemoLane.com is a site that allows you to show all the things you share online in a timeline fashion. It’s easier to show you than it is to explain. To see an example, check out Cliff and Erik’s profiles linked here:
Cliff: http://memolane.com/gspn
Erik: http://memolane.com/erikjfisher

We attempted to talk abut http://hashable.com/sxsw. However, this led to a live discovery of “group texting” services. We started out talking about http://Convore.com. However, we got even more excited about http://Groupme.com. In this episode, we did set up a group called “GSPN.” However, please pay close attention to the warning that we added the beginning of the show. If you sign up for this service, your phone number WILL BE shared with EVERYONE in the group.

Erik also shared some news about Foursquare 3.0. He talked about new special categories http://goo.gl/tgbBm and the new recommendation engine http://goo.gl/w5pDR. Erik also shared why he really does not like Facebook Places as a brand manager.

This week on Social Media Serenity many of the topics relate to Facebook. First Facebook announces in a January 14 blog post, that they will continue to share personal information such as cell phone numbers and addresses with third parties if their users (unwittingly) allow them to do so in their settings.

A new agreement between Facebook and Examiner.com puts comments in Newsfeed and could potentially pull friends responding comments to be displayed on the site where you commented.

Cheryl C gives some great advise on how to comment on your page as yourself rather than as an admin or the brand itself.

Google “pimps out” their profiles by cleaning up the layout of profiles and by supposedly making them easier to find in a google search.

The last topic of today’s show covers privacy issues with smart phones sharing locations of pictures online.
