Facebook Plugins, Animated GIFs, and Social Media Myths: Today's Social 6

Annoying, isn't it?

Salesforce Buddy Media & more iPad Mini: the Social 6 Roundup

Your clicks, shares, retweets, as always, help shape the Social 6 news & views roundup. Salesforce and its sterling recent acquisition, Buddy Media, were big winners yesterday, though naturally news about the iPad Mini's looming announcement were popular as well.
