Have you ever made a cringeworthy mistake in a Facebook post? Don't lie, the answer is yes. 

If you have a sense of shame, Facebook at least allows you to go back and correct your gaffe by editing the post, a feature that certain other social media networks still haven't added. 

But evidence of your slip-up lived on with the tiny "Edited" label on the bottom of the post, signaling to your followers that you cared just enough to correct yourself on the internet. Sad.

Apparently, however, that's no longer the case. It seems that Facebook has removed the on-post edited label, making it much more difficult to know when someone actually took the time to fix their mistake. Read more...

Nothing beats a great marketing conference. Whether you'll be speaking or attending, marketing conferences offer tons of amazing opportunities. If you want to learn tons of new things that will help grow your business in 2017, then you should plan to attend a marketing conference. Plus, you can meet or reconnect with lots of super smart people at conferences – people who can help you in your career. There is no shortage of marketing conferences you could attend in 2017. So how do you separate the OK conferences (the donkeys) from the truly great (the unicorns)? Simple. Keep reading! Here are 19 marketing conferences you shouldn't miss out on in 2017. SEODay SEODay is a large event dedicated to addressing future challenges and priorities for anyone involved in SEO. This conference attracts speakers from around the world and attendees from Norway, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. SEODay takes place Jan. 19 in Denmark. SearchLove If you've got two days and want to learn all you can about search, analytics, and digital marketing, Distilled's SearchLove may be the destination for you. You can listen to must-see speakers like Will Critchlow, Mike King (one of the 12 brilliant marketing entrepreneurs you need to watch this year), and Rand Fishkin. Oh and I'll be there, too! Search Loves takes place Feb. 23-24 in San Diego; June 5-6 in Boston; and October 16-17 in London. Image via Distilled Pubcon The sessions at Pubcon are great – Brett Tabke and his team do a phenomenal job of booking excellent speakers. But the networking? Amazing! Because Pubcon has been around so long, it attracts some of the industry's best and brightest SEO pros – people you won't find at any other search industry events. Pubcon has two events. One is a smaller show in cooperation with SFIMA in Fort Lauderdale Feb. 21-22. The other is the Super Bowl-sized conference (last year featured a mind-boggling 10 tracks!), which will return to Las Vegas November 6-9. C3 (Conductor) Conductor puts on the C3 marketing conference, which focuses on providing insights about attracting customers and revenue through organic channels. C3 2017 will feature speakers from many large brands, including Google, the New York Times, FedEx, and NBCUniversal. The event takes place March 1-2 in New York City. Engage Conference The artist formerly known as SearchFest is now Engage Conference, put on by the awesome not-for-profit team at SEMpdx (for a third of the cost of some other conferences – good deal). Portland will be the place to be March 9 if you want to see keynotes from the Portland Trail Blazers' Matthew Gardner and uber mobile expert Cindy Krum. Plus stay for the after party featuring karaoke, bowling, and darts. Rooftop networking at SMXPDX Engage. Image via SEMPDX.
