On June 6, Larry Ellison--CEO of Oracle, one of the largest and most advanced computer technology corporations in the world--tweeted for the very first time. In doing so, he joined a club that remains surprisingly elite.

Best SEO Practices for Twitter and Facebook

Best SEO Practices for Twitter and Facebook | 287mwm | Scoop.it

The connection between social media and searching is a strong and a natural one. Social media is strong enough at this point to be able to be taken seriously by the search engines. Many businesses have realized that social media is good for their business and that it will help them to become even more successful.

 

However, there are still many other businesses that don’t fully understand how impactful social media can be for them. Hopefully, they will start to understand how powerful it is and they will see the need to commit to working it for their businesses. SEO is a piece of the entire puzzle, which everyone is trying to piece together all of the time.

Curated Video Collection Of Talks, Lectures, Presentations: Keen Talks

Curated Video Collection Of Talks, Lectures, Presentations: Keen Talks | 287mwm | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: If you enjoy the presentations on TED Talks you may also enjoy Keen Talks, a website that takes thousands of lectures, presentations, and debates on various topics sorted by speaker, topic, category, and year of release.

 

From review article on MakeUseOf:

"Keen Talks’ minimalist design is a definite plus, allowing you to search for videos speedily.

...You can also read the quick and witty description of each video to help capture what the talk is all about.
What’s most interesting about Keen Talks is that its collection covers from various sources, compared to TED Talks where you are only limited with TED’s material..."

 

 

From About page on Keen Talks:

"We strive to build one stop destination for all users who want to learn and expand their knowledge in various fields like science, technology, health, psychology etc.

We curate any form of speech that can bring a fair amount of intellect on the table. We don’t curate just lectures or talks, but a whole range of engaging and interesting videos harnessed across the interwebs.


It’s an awesome library packed with video material, delivered by renowned intellectuals around the globe.
Obviously this is not an educational site in a classical form. We rarely curate lectures in classroom setting or a whole courses for that matter, unless they’re stunning. What we offer is more broad intellectual range of all different kinds of public appearances by some of the finest world’s intellectual figures..."
