Link Roundup: 2011's worst social media screw-ups, the Freedom House and productivity rituals

Hope everyone had a fabulous week! This week, we hosted our first ever #CreativeMoCo Tweetup, which was an amazing night of conversation and connections. Thanks to all who came. If you didn’t (or even if you did), read our Storify summary of the night!
And without further ado, here are the daily articles we tweeted this week:


Takeaways: Basically, don’t do this. You’d be shocked at some of the case studies on this list.


Takeaways: It seems like Facebook’s always changing things up. Whether you’ve gotten used to the new Timeline for personal profiles or not, they’re going ahead and launching the same look for brands. Don’t worry though, you still have time to wrap your head around these changes — they”re starting off with a small beta group.


Takeaways: The new National Museum of African American History and Culture will feature a good amount of Maryland and Montgomery County treasures, including the Freedom House (also known as the Jones-Hall-Sims House), a two-story log house build by freed slaves from Montgomery County. The article has more information about the Freedom House about halfway down — a really great read.


Takeaways: According to this video from the Harvard Business Review, automatic rituals decrease the amount of energy needed to tackle your to-do list. It’s pretty interesting, and the video can do more justice to the idea than I can!
