Last month, Facebook once again slashed organic reach for brand pages to what AdWeek (via ValleyWag) is estimating to be a measly 1 to 2 percent. That’s right, all those Likes on your page, well, you’re only going to reach a small fraction of them if you’re not spending money on Facebook advertising. For brands that spent thousands of dollars to gain Likes through Facebook’s ad platform, it’s another blow, one that really hurts because now to reach those Likes they legitimately bought, they’ll have to pay for it.

When Kuno Creative hired me, I officially became the sole member of the agency’s Content Department. Over the past two years, that department has grown to include more than a handful of in-house creative members with the certainty of a few more over the coming months.

My 7-year-old niece, Mayah, loves to shop. And like many girls her age, Justice is her brand of choice. So when Christmas rolled around this past year, rather than taking the risk of buying the wrong glittery top to match this year’s “must have jeans,” I did what any smart aunt would do and opted for a gift card. However, seeing it was December 10, there was no way I was venturing out in a snowstorm only to fight through the treacherous mall traffic. So I decided to place my order online.
