For a long time, you have heard us say to avoid polarizing topics on social media lest your business risk alienating half of your potential market. Topics typically include gun control, religion, abortion, and of course, politics. But these are new times and maybe the rules have changed. Especially if what is happening in politics is impacting your clients and in turn, your business.

The debate between cinematic pros and every day users may rage on, but the social networks have finally succumbed to ordinary habits of users.
And finally, if you want to rise above the noise on social media, there are some simple steps you can follow which will virtually guarantee success.
