Gigaom

Since being launched about 18 months ago, 500 Startups has been on a roll: In that time, the Dave McClure-led seed fund and startup accelerator has made more than 250 investments. And it’s looking to expand even further, with the addition of two venture partners and the promotion of two of its existing team members.

500 Startups has promoted team members Paul Singh and Christen O’Brien to partners.

The State of the Facebook Ad

Digital Brand Marketing Education & Interactives

On April 4, 2012, I received a copy of the 2012 Facebook Ads Report, since I had participated in the study.  This report was produced by SocialFresh with help from Likeable Media, Webtrends, Blitzlocal, Convince & Convert, and Buddy Media, and was compiled based upon feedback from the 347 Facebook advertisers that had completed their survey between February 16th and March 2nd, 2012.

The respondents were experienced marketers, with an average age of 34.3 years and 8.3 years of marketing experience.  The average participant had been managing Facebook ads for about 2 years, and nearly 21% of the advertisers worked with a Facebook ad representative (which usually requires a monthly ad spend of between $10,000 and $20,000).

If You Don’t Understand Why Pinterest Is A Big Deal, Look At This Chart

It was surprising a few months ago when Pinterest became one of the top ten social networks on the web.

A recent Experian study says Pinterest has jumped to the #3 social network position, ousting LinkedIn and falling only to Facebook and Twitter.

Pinterest’s traffic was up almost 50% from February to January 2012 and Pinterest’s unique visitors increased from 11 million to 17.8 million. One week during January yielded 21.5 million Pinterest visits, which is 30 times what its traffic was six months prior.

People are still most engaged on Facebook, spending an average of 405 minutes per month on it. They’re spending about 89 minutes per month on Pinterest.
