Marketing statistics company Hitwise reported that one in every eleven visits to Internet sites in the U.S. were to Facebook last month, with the site itself accounting for one in every five page views.

Dentists: Negative Online Reviews That Will Make You Smile

Dentists: Negative Online Reviews That Will Make You SmileJoe Plummer might be the unwitting hero to dentists and dental practices everywhere with his viral video series Real Actors Read Yelp.

The videos are the creation of the former TV producer and creator, who claims the idea came to him when he read some Yelp restaurant reviews out loud to his wife while she was driving on their way to dinner.

Plummer told Fast Company, “I am not kidding when I say we had to pull the car over because we were laughing so hard. Something about an angry lobster set us off.

Dentists are no strangers to negative online reviews and what Joe Plummer is producing may put all online reviews in to the right perspective.
