Black Friday meant something different altogether in Britain just a few short years ago. Rather than the scramble for pre-Christmas bargains that will be taking place online and on the high street today, it was the scrum at the bar for those precious post-work beers. Black Friday, or Mad Friday, was the night out with colleagues on the last Friday before Christmas.

Google+ is not the first social media platform we recommend to clients. It’s also certainly not the first place prospects go to for information or content.

In her recent and timely blog post this active hurricane season, my colleague Tracy Hartman writes about crisis preparedness when it comes to communications planning.
