How To Send A Power Tweet That Increases Engagement by 400% | building community through social media | Scoop.it
There is a Twitter tool that synergizes, feeds and enhances the Twitter and Blogging ecosystems that promises to make your tweets live longer and as a marketer and a blogger that sounds like something I may be "very" interested in!

 

The web is a seething mass of people sharing on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and they are monster networks with hundreds of millions of participants that drive billions of shares and tweets.


It is estimated that every 20 minutes on Facebook, 1 million links are shared and each month 30 billion pieces of content are posted.

 

On Twitter this hyperactivity continues with 1 billion tweets shared every week.

 

Underneath these social media giants sits secondary and tertiary social networks and applications that feed off their activity. These platforms provide niche communities with places to play, share and explore in an ever changing landscape of ecosystems that tempt you with features and tools that are designed to engage you and addict you.

 

Are You a Hyper Active Social Media Participant?...

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism

Survival Of The Fitting: 10 Important Trends To Survive Digital Darwinism | building community through social media | Scoop.it

"Digital Darwinism is a phenomenon when technology and society evolve faster than the ability to adapt. And, it threatens rigid and traditional practices everywhere."

 

To survive Digital Darwinism takes understanding of course, but more importantly, it takes leadership…it takes courage.

 

The future of business and customer and employee engagement is built upon a foundation of vision, trust, significance, and relationships. Set on this foundation are 10 pillars for which transformation is braced.

 

As Leon C. Megginson once said in paraphrasing Charles Darwin’s Origin of the Species, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

 

10 Tenets to Survive Digital Darwinism

 

*Vision

*Strategy

*Culture

*People

*Innovation

*Influence

*Localization

*Intelligence

*Philanthropic Capitalism

*An ode to leadership

 

Once you listen, not monitor, but truly listen to customer activity and observe online behavior, you cannot help but feel both empathy and harmony. And naturally, the response it begets is only human.
