In this article from Forbes, we learn the secret truths about the data popular internet browser Google Chrome is collecting about you.

This article has sparked some difficult conversations about the need and usage of our data online. In comparison to other browsers such as Safari or Edge, Chrome is definitely walking a fine line that is dangerously close to going the wrong way from a collection and usage standpoint.

Overall, it's clear that Chrome is collecting much more data about YOU than it needs to be functional. The real question I'd ask is if we care to know and act vs accepting the ease of use it provides. Mix opinions all around, so let us know your thoughts!

Is anyone using more than one HubSpot pipeline? We have three pipelines and now have a need to have different default fields for one of them. It doesn't look like it's possible. Trying to find any handy solutions. We have one idea, but it's a bit of extra work and probably annoying for users. Thanks in advance! And thanks, Stephanie Baiocchi for letting me know about this!

Hey There Videographers!

Our internal team is begging for us to invest in a teleprompter to help them with on-camera performance. What are your thoughts on this?

If it's recommended, are there any good recommendations on brands or bests for use with a MarkIV (if the camera matters?)

Thanks, Happy Friday! See More

The NFL just signed a deal valued at over $100 billion with new players including Amazon exclusive Thursday Night Football starting in 2023 and an increased focus on streaming platforms for viewership.

After a 7% decrease in viewership during the 2020-2021 season, it seems they are taking a more radical approach to increase viewership with younger audiences.

I'm curious how other sports will follow as they become more exclusive and streaming-focused. Stay tuned! See More

I'm hearing a lot about this book since its release earlier this week as it's seen as the sequel to Radical Candor.

Who has picked it up already? Has anyone finished it already?

Let's get the discussion started.

Also, if you are curious, here's a link to pick it up for yourself!

Here's a question for you: If a friend of yours owned a business, and asked you how to market themselves better post-pandemic, what tips would you give them? What do you feel like your business does really well that would help others? What do you need to do more of that would be helpful for your business? See More
For a long time, this feature was included on Samsung and Google Pixel devices, but now anyone on a Chrome browser has access to these live captions generated on the platform.

This is a huge win for those looking to make the internet more accessible. At the same time, however, does this mean that there will be serious competition for caption software programs that currently exist?

Good morning all,

What's your favorite or go-to quiz/tool/book for learning more about your professional or personal strengths?

I've had an interest in diving into this more but it seems like there's so many out there that I'm not sure where to start.

All suggestions welcome but free is always a good thing in this regard and preferably things that are a bit more insightful than say a Buzzfeed "Which Hogwarts House Are You?" quiz (you know, the ones that go something like: "Q: How do you handle this situation? A: 1. Bravely 2. Intelligently 3. Yellow 4. Like a snake"). See More
Hi everyone, I am new to this community, and I'd love to have your input.

As I listen to @Liz Moorehead's course "How to Build a Content Strategy", I am trying to figure out if I understand the topic cluster's concept well. As Liz explains, I need to think about what I want my company to be known for.

The website I am building is focused on one technology. Imagine that this technology is blockchain. My initial thought is, "okay, blockchain is my topic, and the subtopics are: Use cases Case studies Products and vendors Pros and cons Cost Getting started etc." Then I realized that I would end with just one topic cluster. It looks like it's not what Liz suggests.
If I consider a topic like "blockchain ecosystem", the subtopics would be:... See More

YouTube is making it easier than ever for YouTube content creators to track the performance of their videos as well as their audience engagement with their video content.

Some of the new tracking features include: Living Room data - This means is impressions derived from sources like TV and video game consoles will be available in channels’ analytics count. New and returning viewers - This new metric is going to be helpful because it will allow creators to see who is returning to a channel and who is viewing its content for the first time.

Hi everyone!

I posted recently about expanding our in-house marketing team. As part of that, it looks like we'll have the opportunity to add a part-time graphic designer sooner rather than later -- which is great news for our content marketing efforts. My plan is to have her work on layouts and designs for premium content, as well as things like infographics for blog articles and web pages. I'm sure having better visuals will help our content to have a bigger impact on our prospects.

Because this is going to be a big part of our inbound and TAYA strategy, I'd like to make sure she has a solid foundation in both of those concepts as soon as possible. I'm going to send her some articles from IMPACT and HubSpot about inbound and TAYA, and... See More
Hello all,

I was wondering what your favorite ways are to celebrate the content that your SMEs produce or help produce (as well celebrating your SMEs)?

I've been working with some new SMEs and getting more collaboration from others that had good experiences.I have some go-to tactics but I want to fill my celebration toolbox to the brim so I can best make them feel like the rock stars they are as well as bring the deserved attention to the valuable content that they're helping create.

Not to pull at your heart strings, but in reality, I am trying to do exactly that. I'm looking to buy a lighting kit for photography and video recording that's easy to use and pretty portable to move around for my girlfriend's birthday. She has a personal baking account with ~4k followers and I want to help her make it even better without having to always rely on natural light for photoshoots or tutorials.

What kits or tech would you recommend? Pricepoints and places to buy them are a plus!

Thanks :) See More
Hey All!!

I currently am in school and studying digital marketing so I figured this could be a great tool for me! I am super stoked to be able to find out what I can learn with this amazing tool and what I can learn from all of you!

Thank you! See More
Social Media Today asked the question: How do we reduce trolls, manipulation, and abuse on social media? The answer they found may surprise you.

In the UK, there is a petition with well over 100,000 signatures asked Parliament to require identity verification with social media.

If you ask me, this sounds like a huge identity and data risk waiting to happen. While yes, itcould reduce the spread of online bullying and abuse, most people, at least in the adult age group (18+) don't really try to hide their identity as is when online.

I'm interested to see the type of legal battle that comes from a conversation like this and if it will set the tone for future conversations about legal regulation of social media platforms.
