The first social network wasn’t found online. It didn’t have character limits, handles, or feeds. Nothing we’ve come to expect from modern day social media networks. It was a bar and a cold beer, and that was all that it needed. If this bar was located in America during the last century, chances were good that sitting on top of that was one of the many beers brewed and distributed by Anheuser-Busch.

American mornings are run on two things: Al Roker's weather reports and Dunkin Donuts coffee. With over 6,700 locations from Maine to Los Angeles it's an understatement to say that "America Runs on Dunkin.” Throw in the 10,000+ locations around the world and it looks more and more like this running thing is a global trend. On any given day they serve up over 52 varieties (and counting) of donuts and countless other breakfast offerings. In addition to hawking over 30 cups of coffee every second, Dunkin Donuts produces some of the tastiest morning tweets around.

A few years back in an effort to curb labor costs, Walmart laid-off Smiley Face. In January, it said goodbye to its door greeters, which some pundits speculated would be replaced by offshore call centers or robots.
