A long awaited addition to H Street has finally arrived. Our client The Big Board is now open to the public with a grand opening celebration planned for Saturday, October 8. In case you haven’t heard, The Big Board is a new “beer-and-burger” concept restaurant where beer prices fluctuate in real time based on demand. Beer “stock” values are displayed on 40-inch flat screen TVs using an application built for Samsung Smart TV. Q also designed the splash page for the restaurant’s website and is in the process of designing its business cards.

If you’ve noticed that Facebook has been a little buggy lately, you’re not alone and there are several reasons why.

You No Longer Need 25 Fans To Get A Custom Page URL
Historically, a major pain point for Facebook page managers was the need to wait to accumulate the 25 fans necessary to create a custom page URL once a page had been created. Those vanity extensions go quickly, and it can be frustrating to watch some of the best fits for a brand disappear while you work to build your fan base. And who want to refer their earliest fans to a long, unmemorable URL with a bunch of numbers at the end. Well take heart. As of this week, once you hang that digital shingle, the option to select a vanity URL is yours.

Beginning today, Facebook users will notice something different when tagging photos. In addition to the longstanding ability to tag friends in photos, you can now tag images with pages associated with brands – whether you “Like” them or not. The feature still has a few kinks – not every page type is available for tagging yet and some brands that should be fail to show up as options. But if you’re a Facebook supertagger or a brand looking to drum up additional visibility on this channel, this is generally good news. A couple of added bonuses: Facebook had the foresight to design the feature to appear on a page’s photo tab as opposed to clogging the wall and page admins will have the ability to disable the feature.
