Snow, glorious snow!

On Friday snow hit the UK with more snow than even in 2010 so we did the only natural thing and built a snowman at work. As you do. Following that I had the first free weekend in two weekends which doesn’t sound so grand, but considering the hours I’d been working plus spending most […]

Working in marketing – which still sounds oh so pretentious – I deal with Facebook advertisement amongst other things. As such I know of all the targeting options available from the usual age or gender to the more unusual and somewhat creepy others. They’re outlined in this article, but here is a list of the […]
