Infographic: 365 Days of Social Media

Infographic: 365 Days of Social Media | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

A new infographic based on statistics published by the Huffington Post lists 100 of the most fascinating figures from 2012, focusing on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram & Google+.


More than 1 million websites integrated with Facebook since the beginning of 2012. with a reported 80% of users preferring to connect with brands via the social site. With 23% of people checking their accounts five or more times a day, it's hard to miss an advertising opportunity.

Rival social network Google+ could become real competition, garnering 625,000 new members every day of last year. Of those millions of people, active users reportedly spend more than 60 minutes a day across Google products, averaging 12 minutes per day with Google+.

Meanwhile, micro-blogging site Twitter held its own last year. The average user tweeted 307 times over the course of 2012...

20 Biggest Brand Boners of 2012 | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

"Try to contain your excitement," said these ads for British fashion brand Harvey Nichols, which showed the models peeing themselves. Some people took offense, but the company said it was merely making "a visual representation of a well-known phrase."

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress: 6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress:  6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

"This review of Jetpack got me over my doldrums and disaffected non-blogging status with my WordPress website.  It's a very handy and FREE set of tools!"


I've implemented the social media integration already via my self-hosted Wordpress site: REVELN.com.   This social media share plug-in element IN PARTICULAR is EASY.  Finally, Wordpress!   

Glossy, media rich platforms that don't so much need the heavy lifting of html like Posterous and Tumblr still dazzle, but at least WP is catching up with this fantastic plugin pack with it's very own navigation menu.

Why, I might even mini-blog this and pin it on one of my 45 Pinterest boards.  Heh, and you might think I'm kidding.


Below is the #1 reason from the Jetpack review on why Wordpress users will want to take a look at this cool plugin pack.  


Excerpted:


1. Easy to Install, Setup, and Learn

Jetpack could not be easier to install and set up, considering how many different benefits it provides.

 

To install it, just go to Plugins –> Add New and then type “jetpack” into the search box. It’ll be the first result.


Hit “Install Now” and you’re ready to go (unless you need to create a WordPress.com account, which is necessary so you can link it with your blog and Jetpack).

 

Once you’ve got the plugin activated, it will create its own dashboard nav bar menu section right at the top.


If you want to see the social media I now am using, thanks to JetPack, which made it EASY, go to THIS blog post, "Open Space on Speed: Social Business with the Coaches, Results! Video"  and scroll down to the bottom.  


Note the social media icons and ease with which you can comment and share!  (And DO feel free to share with comments! :-)


===


Enjoy.  There's something there for just about everyone, it seems.

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

Looking for Content Curation Tools? Here's Where To Start: The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.


Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 


But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.


The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.


On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.
