Infographic: More Teens Choose Instagram Over Twitter And Facebook | Statista
You will find more statistics at Statista

According to PiperJaffray's latest report on the preferences of American teens, Instagram continues to rise in popularity among teenagers. According to the report, 32 percent of U.S. teens named Instagram the most important social network to them personally, up from just 17 percent in Spring 2013. Instagram's rise comes at the expense of Facebook and Twitter who were chosen by 14 and 24 percent, respectively, in the latest edition of the survey.

Facebook in particular continues to lose its appeal to the youth, although another recent survey suggests that it is still the most-widely used social network among young Americans. Outside the Top 3, Snapchat is quickly rising in popularity. The app that let's its users share disposable photos/messages was the number 1 choice for 13 percent of the respondents and could soon eclipse Facebook in terms of popularity among America's youth.

Health Inspections 101

In all my years of running restaurants, health inspections have always been impromptu, meaning, I've never had a health inspector call me up and say, “Please get prepared, I’ll be by in two days to do an inspection.”  Wouldn't that have been nice?  

Despite the ice that runs through your veins when you hear, “The Health Inspector is here” that big, bad health inspector did not come to huff and puff and blow your restaurant down.  As a matter of fact, they’re…

Customer Retention - Listen to them

Today, is the day of the most digitally empowered customers! Your guests/customers don't like the experience at your restaurant, they will actively look out to voice their opinion. If the medium they choose to do so is on the internet forums (like Zomato, Yelp etc), then we have a problem. Negative word-of-mouth. This again leads to the dreadful phenomenon of Customer churn. Which means, you need to spent a lot more on advertising  than to grow your customer base Automatically. So now what?…
