Podcast: Could Facebook’s Follow Button Rival Google’s Author Rank?

On today’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog shared how Facebook is reaching out to journalists with best practice guides and two tools that could rival Google’s author rank system and search function.

First, we discussed a woman’s campaign to get a block button on LinkedIn to fend off an alleged stalker. No such feature currently exists, but a leaked screenshot shows that something may be in the works.

Later in the podcast, we discussed how the U.S. Senate just passed a landmark sales tax fairness bill. What will this mean for online retailers?
