Winning the Internet

Friday Linx: Affordable care cat edition

After a great run, the Winning the Internet blog has been retired. However, you can still keep in touch with New Media Mentors here.

Friday Linx is a recurring feature on our blog. We’re aiming to bring you a collection of links worth a read and cute cat video to ease you into the weekend. Below you’ll find items on Facebook updates, Google Analytics goals, and engaging millenials.

We’re kicking things off today with a celebration:

Okay, it’s not a video, but it’s still adorable, right? If this little guy isn’t enough for you, check out the live Kitten Cam on Ustream.

Onto the links!

Facebook made a couple of changes that will make our lives easier. First they made it easier to change the username for a Facebook page. So, if you’ve been meaning to change your page’s name but have been dreading trying to get a hold of an actual human at Facebook to do it, now’s your chance!

Facebook also made it possible for users to edit their comments after posting them. This will be a boon to anyone who’s posted too quickly and thought better of it later. It will also work well for adding in forgotten urls, correcting embarrassing typos, etc.

Lunametrics published a two part series on Google Analytics Goals. Their recommendations are solid, and their guide to setting up goals is easy to follow. These posts are definitely worth a look if your goals aren’t working for you, or if you haven’t set them up yet. Check out Part 1 and Part 2.

DonorDrive released a paper about engaging millenials. If you don’t have time to read the whole thing, Kevin Wolfe put together a great post with the highlights. If you’ve been wondering if or how you should be engaging millenials, this is worth a read.
