How To Find Influential People Who May Be Tweeting Your Content

How To Find Influential People Who May Be Tweeting Your Content | The Content Marketing Hat | Scoop.it
Most people who tweet links don't bother to mention the author, so it's hard to know when someone important does that for you. Unless you have this tool.
Mike Allton's insight:
What do you do if an influencer tweets a link to your content, drives a bunch of new readers... but doesn't mention you in the tweet? That's what happened to me yesterday, when Michael Hyatt was kind enough to share one of my posts. The share itself was awesome, but it's the 'light bulb moment' I had afterwards... how I found that share, that I want to show you.

Instagram Has A New Look, But How You Use It Hasn’t Changed… Yet

Instagram Has A New Look, But How You Use It Hasn’t Changed… Yet | The Content Marketing Hat | Scoop.it
Instagram's icon and the style of the app has been updated with a new minimalist design. But don't worry, all of the functionality you're used to is the same. For now.
Mike Allton's insight:
Any time Facebook releases a major change to the app... or even a tweak to the news feed... it's cause for major concern and hair-pulling-out for many. We all hate change, and changes to the things we use or do daily are felt most dear.

So it's no wonder that, when Instagram announced a complete makeover and "an updated icon and app design" that applies to main app as well as Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse, many started to panic.
