This week was replete with value. Learn the "science of the Harlem Shake," see the first-ever Vine résumé, and score the story—and insights—on the Burger King Twitter hack. Also, we've got tools in droves: PinAlerts for Pinterest, Curalate for Instagram/Pinterest/Facebook campaign creation and analysis, SendTracker for SlideShare, Twitter's lead-gen advertising card, and Facebook Nearby. Also, does Facebook really punish brands for posting from third-party platforms? The answer to that, and more, in this week's #SocialSkim.
