“You’re Creeping Me Out!” The Dark Side of Social Networking

“You’re Creeping Me Out!” The Dark Side of Social Networking | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Social media is great for making new friends, but it also attracts the creeps.

 

Things are about to get personal.

 

Social media has made it easier than ever to connect: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and other services have greatly amplified everyone’s personal brand message. This is fun, and beneficial inasmuch as we can get a sense of someone’s professionalism, character, and personality before we ever meet them in person.

Martin Gysler's curator insight, March 13, 2013 10:46 AM

I can not agree more with what Kerry said in this excellent post.

 

Sometimes I wonder why some people think they can make a profit in everything they do. If you only want to do business on social media, it may be worth leaving now, because you will be disappointed.

A LinkedIn experiment for the next 30 days

A LinkedIn experiment for the next 30 days | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

That sounds really great. I'll start this 30 day experiment right now. What I like in this experiment, it's the social approach and in the same time, the educational impact on the user... wow, cool! [note Martin Gysler]

 

Des Walsh has setup an experiment on Linkedin called the 30 day linking blitz, a collaborative project, in which each participant commits to take action on his/her LinkedIn presence and activity, over a 30 day period for 20 minutes a day. The purpose is to make more effective use of our LinkedIn memberships and drive positive networking both personally and professionally with the following aims:

 

- Amplify our social presence
- Enhance our network reach and level of influence
- Improve our network engagement
- Be more readily findable, for the products and/or services we offer

Facebook and comScore: “This is how to do social marketing”

Facebook and comScore: “This is how to do social marketing” | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

ComScore released a new study with Facebook today explaining “how social marketing works.” If that sounds to suspicious minds like the fox explaining how to guard the chickens, that’s because it pretty much is. However, the study does contain a huge amount of useful information for social marketers.

Here are some highlights.

 

You’re more popular on Facebook

 

Social profiles on Facebook routinely get more attention than brands’ own websites. The example comScore gives is Skittles, which had 320,000 visitors to its Facebook page in March 2012, versus only 23,000 visitors to its corporate website. And that’s just visitors to the brand page; it does not count impressions of the company’s updates in fans’ news feeds.

 

The clear message from Facebook: pay attention to your Facebook presence.

Reddit: A Beginner's Guide

Reddit: A Beginner's Guide | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Spend some quality time with Reddit -- you'll find it an essential resource, a self-correcting marketplace of ideas. Get started with our guide.

 

To the uninitiated, Reddit looks like a mess — text links, comment threads, points, upvotes, downvotes. At best, posts seem contextless — at worst, totally random.

 

But spend some quality time with “The Front Page of the Internet,” and you’ll find it’s an essential resource, a self-correcting marketplace of ideas that’s nearly impervious to marketers.

 

Simply put, Reddit is a message board wherein users submit links. What differentiates it from a real-time information network like Twitter is that the stream of content is curated by the community. Items of value are “upvoted,” and those deemed unworthy are “downvoted.” This determines a post’s position on the site, and items that hit the front page are seen by hundreds of thousands of people (consequently, sending boatloads of traffic to the linked website).

Pinterest locked in stalemate with image owners

Pinterest locked in stalemate with image owners | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

You're on Pinterest... like me... this post should interest you. [note mg]

 

Image-sharing site Pinterest has been in negotiations for months with photo service Getty. A breakthrough could dispel some of the copyright questions hanging over the hot startup — but one expert says not to hold your breath.

 

According to Bill Rosenblatt, an engineer and authority on digital rights issues, the two sides are likely in a logjam over how — or if — Pinterest should use Getty’s image detection software, PicScout. Getty acquired PicScout, which tracks images across the Internet, last year for $20 million.

Progressives Guide to Social Media 1: Intro

Progressives Guide to Social Media 1: Intro | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

This is the first in a series of short articles that are intended to help grassroots activists better utilize social media websites. These are the definitive and comprehensive guides for progressives. Every week after the Intro, there will be a new guide published about how to more effectively use Reddit, Digg, StumbleUpon, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Other Sites, and on Advanced Strategies.

 

Social Media is going to be one of the central battlegrounds in the 2012 election cycle in the US. The corporate right understands this very well, and they have invested mass sums from their war chest to send in legions of mindless astroturfers to try to control content aggregation and spin. It is essential for genuine grassroots supporters of real change and reform to take an active role on this front to fight back. If you believe that all men and women are created equal, that every person deserves to start out on a level playing field in life to succeed or fail on their own merits, if you believe that science, reason, education, and truth are valuable in this world, and that freedom requires ordinary people to stand up and fight, then these guides are for you.

LinkedIn Groups – How to Encourage, Entice, Engage! » Linked Into Business | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Wo Hoo an amazing must-read post [note mg]

 

The most complete guide you can get for LinkedIn groups without buying my book!


It’s Tuesday again – so time for another blog and #LinkedInChat. This week we are going to look more closely as groups. How to use them to Encourage, Entice and Engage with other LinkedIn members.

 

My first challenge today is to take my 40 page chapter on Groups and refine it into a few highlights you can use to really explode your group experience!

 

Group engagement is one of the best ways I know up to start building strategic relationships. The nice thing about a group is that even if you are not connected with another member, you can still send the messages to that member.
