This week’s show covers the new news app from Facebook, ‘Notify’, I share why I’m probably about to disconnect from you on LinkedIn, emplore marketers to get on the social ad via email targeting bandwagon, answer a listener question about making the most of time on social media and a heck of a lot more! Oh and it all happens in less than 20 mins. Social media and marketing news, views and a little bit of music.

BuzzFeed wants your questions for Facebook’s ‘M’ personal assistant 




  • I mentioned that Google now allows you to target ads via email database members and that you should try this across Facebook and Twitter too!
  • I recommended using Flux to save your eyes when using a Mac

User question

Thanks to Briony for the great question re how to spend 10 hours per week on social media, and for recording the trail! I hope that helped your work at Yelp!  If you’d like me to answer your question in the show, feel free to tweet @mike_mcgrail or email me.

Want to record a guest trail?

I’m looking for listeners to record the intro trail for the podcast for me! I see it as nice way of getting you involved, it’ll be very easy to do and of course I’ll credit you and plug something for you.  If you fancy it, please tweet @mike_mcgrail or email me.


Thanks to Jess Child and Rhona for the tweets this week!
