It's LinkLove time!

We've got some good ones for you this week, hopefully they'll brighten up the mid-week slump and keep you entertained until Friday. If not, you can always follow us on Twitter for more great links, witty quotes, and twit pics of our handsome CEOs.

Our first link sets the bar very high. Which is something we've come to expect from Sharlyn over at HRBartender! This week she wrote about the importance of companies embracing mobile as a part of their corporate culture. Mobile optimization isn't the future — it's now!

Speaking of the future, this cool Infographic puts the history of the internet into visual form. And in doing so, accomplishes two very important tasks: supplying us with interesting facts to quote at networking events, and making me feel old.

Another thing that makes me feel old is my dislike of Instagram video. Why did they have to go and mess with a good thing, and force me to re-think an app I'm just now getting comfortable with? Remember the good old days, back when there was only Vine video? Well, here's everything you need to know about Instagram video.

If Insta-vids (you heard it here first folks) wasn't enough to keep you on your toes, check out Potluck. Potluck is an entirely new link-based social network that's being touted as "A house party on the internet." A BYOD house party, of course!

And just in case you thought you could get through one of our LinkLoves without a single debunked myth, we had to share this awesome debunking of recruiting myths by Tina Iantorno. Apparently recruiters and employers still "post and pray"! Sad, but true. If you don't want that to be your recruiting strategy, I highly recommend using a recruitment app with built-in metrics.

To finish with a bang, let me ask you this very, very serious question: What if John Lennon were to compete on the Voice? The John Lennon! Would he have even made it past the preliminary rounds? This article is worth a read, but the commentary that follows is what really steals the show.
