To the month of February, 30 days probably seems like a heavy load to carry, but to your business, they could make all the difference. That is, if you follow Radian6’s intensive 30-day social media plan
to help humanize your brand.
Meanwhile, is Apple rebranding itself with a new, rainbow logo
sure hopes so.
Forget rebranding—musical group Rush would like Rush Limbaugh to reband

Nature Valley is combining social media with the great outdoors by politely telling its consumers to take a hike. The brand’s new Trail View
initiative, inspired by Google Street View, uses 360-degree camera images to map out more than 300 miles of 58 paths in the Grand Canyon, Smokey Mountains, and Yellowstone.
