While everyone knows that I’m a big fan of ShortStack to create Facebook apps (and they are also now a sponsor of this site), I’ve become increasingly impressed with their content. The Socially Stacked blog regularly churns out great articles, and now they’ve put out The Ultimate Facebook Holiday Idea Book.
I’ll get to the substance of the eBook in a second, but first the main reason I’m so excited about it:
ShortStack will donate $100 for every 1,000 downloads (up to $2,000) to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!
How can you not get behind that? And it’s free! As the father of a cancer survivor, this is a goal I want to help them reach!
The “Idea Book” is info and superstar packed, loaded with quick tips from some of my favorites. You’re bound to recognize most of these names as I’ve written about many of them here before:
- Amy Porterfield

- Andrea Vahl
- Ann Handley (Marketing Profs)
- Ching Ya
- Jesse Stanchak (SmartBrief on Social Media)
- Jim Belosic

- Melanie Duncan
- Michael Stelzner (Social Media Examiner)
