Who doesn’t love Google? No really? If you don’t i’d love to know why or the specifics. I myself find their services extremely helpful and interesting. I mean what can’t they do? They pretty much have an answer for everything and even coined a phrase; “Google it.” I genuinely hope the best is yet to come and they still got plenty more in store. So here’s to you Goggle and your profitability.

With this in mind, I’ve always been somewhat curious as to how Google was so successful and profitable as I thought of them as simply getting their start as a search engine and expanding accordingly. Upon researching it, the answer was actually quite simple and not at all surprising. They were using a simple and timeless strategy to drive revenue and allow themselves to expand their reach and services.

Below is an infographic all about Google and an in depth look at their profitability and the major source of revenue driving their success. This is simply advertising and the revenues they generate from allowing other companies to market through their websites or services. As is generally the case Goggle has the answer and I think that someone could easily use Googles techniques for success to make themselves or their corporation extremely profitable.

Conceivably at one point or another we have all been plagued by a stream of useless, pointless, and dismal, Facebook, Twitter, or various other forms of social media posts. Amid the melancholy, there is a glimmer of resilience and unique qualities unlike any other offered to the individual user if properly utilized.

In the vein of personal branding, I think to some degree it is necessary to promote oneself and achievements online and share them with others. Similarly, Franklin D. Roosevelt understood “Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” This could apply at both an individual and general level. We should strive to support the creative efforts and achievements of others just as much as ourselves. In a conscious effort to further the limits of creativity or contribute to the betterment of our online or actual communities.

On the other hand, there are some things that are better kept to ourselves. Pictures, comments, or videos incidentally undermining our online image or people’s conception of our values or beliefs. Caution is key when managing individual or corporate social media and networking content. Don’t be afraid to think more than twice before you post. Deferring again to a prominent historical figure let Benjamin Franklin’s words drive my point home, “Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”

For example, breaking the world record for the most chicken nuggets consumed by weight in under three minutes is an excellent Facebook post. Not only is this an extremely creative effort and wonderful personal achievement but it’s super entertaining. Thank you Jon Lau for filling my Facebook stream with good content.

Breaking a world record qualifies as a solid Facebook post!

Consequently, don’t be afraid to stop following or unfriend individuals who provide no benefit to your social networks. If your extremely unsure how to manage your various social networks, where to begin, or what qualifications go into even assessing an individuals added value to your life or networks. It be could be helpful to defer to this infographic on whether or not it’s time to unfriend someone on Facebook:
