[This article has been updated following some changes in Freebase's structure and interface]
When Matt Cutts spoke about the Knowledge Graph at SES San Francisco in 2012, he revealed, for the first time, the primary data source behind Google's things-not-strings endeavor - Google's Freebase.
Freebase is a Google-owned database of topics/entities associated with real-world things. It compiles information from multiple sources such as Wikipedia to display it on the Knowledge Graph. What could be of particular interest to Web marketers is that the project is open-source and anyone can contribute to it.
So, if you've been wondering how to make the information about your company or brand appear on the Knowledge Graph - this post will teach you how to enter it straight into Google's Freebase.

Some snobs say Social Media managers are useless staff and get their salaries for the job that could have been distributed between other departments with no harm. I will not fight with them (no, not today) and would rather suggest we imagined that SMM was as important as medicine for instance.
