Should Your Restaurant Have a Social Media Policy for Employees?

Between Facebook, Twitter and their fellow networks, restaurant operators have a number of tools in their arsenal to help market their business and get customer feedback, but social platforms pose their own set of challenges for operators as well.

As major brands like Domino’s have discovered, all it takes is one misbehaving rogue employee and you can have a major crisis on your hands. YouTube and Instagram, unfortunately,…

It’s different fro B2C social media marketing. It’s about becoming a thought leader and optimizing partner relations while curating new interest without being advertorial.

Here is a quick idea how to get started:

A new feature on Facebook called Graph Search has the potential to be a big influence on restaurant referrals and word-of-mouth. While this Facebook function is still in the beta testing stage, experts believe it could be a powerful partner with search engine optimization strategies.

Social Media and SEO: How your pages can help you get to the top of search results

One question I get a lot when I talk to restaurant owners about social media is “Will Facebook get me on the first page of Google?” My answer is always the same: yes and no. Let me explain why.

First of all, I want to make clear that SEO/SEM (search engine optimization/search engine marketing) is a whole industry of its own, and it’d be simplistic of me to say that by having social media pages, you’ll rank higher in searches. SEO is complex, and it involves a lot of algorithms,…

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
