Want to make money? Study says Instagram beats Twitter, Facebook in brand engagement:
"There’s been less resistance to the addition than other networks have seen, suggesting that users are more comfortable with branded content when it’s visually appealing" (via Instagram beats Facebook and Twitter in brand engagement, a study says | Digital Trends)
"Keen observation, incisive analysis and passionate engagement mark this author’s account of the 2010 earthquake that devastated his native Haiti." (via Best Books of 2013 on Nature and the Environment: THE WORLD IS MOVING AROUND ME | Kirkus)
“‘Sandberg may not “speak to every woman’s circumstance,’ Katherine Goldstein wrote in April—’is there any book that does?’—but ‘she succeeds in speaking to mine.’” (via Best books 2013: Top 10 books of the year from Slate.)
We kind of constructed these false borders within which we decided to live, you know? We would go to cafes, but only if they had armed guards, and we would go to movies, but only if they were matinees where there weren’t a lot of people. And we kind of assumed, as I think a lot of people did, that Hebrew University, this integrated place of study with both Jewish Israelis and Palestinians was off limits. And obviously that wasn’t the case.
We talk with “The Bookshelf” podcasters about our labor-of-love (aka client) Tara Books at the 2013 Brooklyn Book Festival.
"This illustrated novel about growing up poor near the swamps of South Florida has a lurid vibrancy. Its prose is lit from below, like a vaguely scummy in-ground swimming pool, and the author’s photographs—of ranch houses, randy adolescents, alligators, drub paraphernalia, fishing tackle, convenience stores—are what you might get if you combined William Eggleston’s talents with Terry Richardson’s." - Dwight Garner in the 2013 Holiday Gift Guide - The New York Times
