What are the best social meda outlets for a business?

Daniel from Redlands, CA

Episode 1064

Daniel has so many social media outlets for his business, and it's becoming a full-time job managing all of it. Leo says that if he has a business, he should at least have a web page, and a presence on Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest is good for selling goods. Google Plus is good, but it's not widespread at all. Twitter is great for communicating with customers, though. LinkedIn is good for finding employees. But at the end of the day, it's best to just keep it simple. YouTube is great for video, but he's better off driving people to his own webpage.

How can I prevent Facebook from using my contacts?

Robert from Palm Springs, CA

Episode 1032

Robert wants to install the Facebook and Twitter apps, but he's worried about the apps having access to his address book. Leo says it's best to just say no to that. The apps should ask beforehand, so he should take his time when he installs, and just say no. Twitter does it different on Android, though. It makes him think the contacts are on Twitter by having a check beside all his addressees. And that can be embarrassing when Twitter is harassing them with emails. That's what happened to Leo.
