Each year on October 1st dozens of famous landmarks around the world will be illuminated in pink light. Miami is no exception.
This awesome display is done to draw attention to the importance of mammography screening for early diagnosis of breast cancer, as well as the research for finding ways to cure and prevent breast cancer.
Social Media is also stepping up to the challenge of raising awareness, enabling millions worldwide to connect with each other, share their battles with Breast Cancer and raise funds for this worthy cause.
One of the most eye-catching and fun social media initiatives involves YouTube.

Obtaining an astounding over 13 million views. Read more about other breast cancer social media campaigns by clicking here.
Twitter has changed its layout and given us a new way to dress up our profile pages: Header Images. Yes, these are a lot like Facebook and Google + cover photos, and the process for adding them is just as simple.
One important pointer, your bio will now appear on top of your new header image. To keep your bio legible, make sure your background is not too busy or too light. Otherwise, your bio and contact information will become hard to read.

How can you get the most amount of traffic out of a tweet or post on Facebook?
Well, timing is everything, as the old adage goes.
Bitly, the popular URL shortener, released a report earlier this year letting us all know the best times to tweet and post to Facebook in order to get more click-throughs. Fortunately, the smart folks over at Raka have put together this clear cut inforgraphic, so we can all get the benefits of Bitly’s report, without actually having to read it.
A few people have asked me to write a step by step cheat sheet on how to schedule posts on a Facebook Page.
This is a great way to be strategic about your posts, plan them in advance and make sure you tie in all of your promotions and marketing efforts along with your social media efforts.
Here is how you do it.
Go to your Facebook Page
Click on your Status box
Create a post: text and/or add a photo or video
Click on the CLOCK icon on the bottom left hand side of your status box
Select the year, month, day, hour and minute you want the post to show up on your Page.
Then click Schedule.
Once you have clicked on Schedule, the notice below will show up. It will confirm the time and day you have selected for your post and it will offer you the opportunity to edit your post by going to the Activity Log.
This is what the Activity Log looks like. It will show all of the posts you have scheduled to go out in chronological order, as well as the ones you have already posted in the past. You can cancel your post, change the scheduled time or chose to publish it now, by clicking on the arrow on the right hand side of the post.
