  • Something cool to talk about on HubSpot TV would be best practices for status updates on Facebook and Twitter. There are those of us (myself included) who use the Twitter for Facebook application to keep everything in sync. But this annoys a lot of Facebook users due to the pace that I tweet (which is only 5 times a day that aren't @replies). (from Ellie: Dare I plug my own blog? Feel free to grab the content from here: http://www.elliemirman.com/bid/4257/twitter-facebook-app-why-i-love-it-how-i-could-love-it-more )
  • Joe Mako: question for your next HubSpot TV: what is a safe place to check domain availability, to avoid front-running? I used to use "Suso's domain availability checker" : http://support.suso.org /dns/saferdomainlookup.php but it has since been taken down
