Perhaps nothing is as effective and efficient in spreading your message as a viral marketing campaign. The idea behind viral marketing is to inspire people to spread your message for you.

Parallax design sites are growing in use because they embrace the fluidity of the Web, provide simplicity, and offer a scrolling technique that creates a neat 3-D effect.
You should be aware of some concerns when deciding whether to use a parallax design. Concerns include the following.
Parallax design is highly animated with a lot of scripts, so it can decrease the load time of a website.
Not all browsers are able to support the parallax design. That inability can lead to problems for the user.
Parallax scrolling is also not ideal for mobile as it makes the website bloated. Parallax adds layers of code to a website.
Deficient for analytics
If all your content is on one page, understanding what content is capturing visitors can be difficult. There can be workarounds to this obstacle, such as using event tracking or tying a pageview in Google Analytics to sections of parallax scrolling, but parallax design does add a layer of complexity to analytics.
SEO and new design techniques often don't mesh. In addition to being deficient on the analytics side, many parallax websites are not built with SEO in mind. Content often takes a backseat to the visual, and parallax pages typically aren't geared towards specific topics and targeted websites. External websites may only have one page to link without linking to specific subpage with more relevant content.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:
I used this phrase in a meeting last year and got laughed at. Parallax is mobile friendly so a trending design ethos.
Wouldn't it be great if you could just call up a supercomputer and ask it to do your data-wrangling for you? Actually, scratch that, no-one uses the phone anymore. What'd be really cool is if machines could respond to your queries straight from Twitter. It's a belief that's shared by Wolfram Research, which has just launched the Tweet a Program system to its computational knowledge engine, Wolfram Alpha. In a blog post, founder Stephen Wolfram explains that even complex queries can be executed within the space of 140 characters, including data visualizations.
In the Wolfram Language a little code can go a long way. And to use that fact to let everyone have some fun with the introduction of Tweet-a-Program. Compose a tweet-length Wolfram Language program, and tweet it to @WolframTaP. TheTwitter bot will run your program in the Wolfram Cloud and tweet the result back to you. One can do a lot with Wolfram Language programs that fit in a tweet. It’s easy to make interesting patterns or even complicated fractals. Putting in some math makes it easy to get all sorts of elaborate structures and patterns.
The Wolfram Language not only knows how to compute π, as well as a zillion other algorithms; it also has a huge amount of built-in knowledge about the real world. So right in the language, you can talk about movies or countries or chemicals or whatever. And here’s a 78-character program that makes a collage of the flags of Europe, sized according to country population. There are many, many kinds of real-world knowledge built into the Wolfram Language, including some pretty obscure ones. The Wolfram Language does really well with words and text and deals with images too.

Great Tweet by Brian Franzo (@iSocialFanz) of a report that uses Wiki-Pedia edits to ask an interesting question - are data deserts forming? I would love to have one more data set to confirm the fast wite middle before assigning the word "data desert" if only because wikipedia editing, the data was sourced from number of edits on wikipedia, may be an acquired taste.

"Members only" - "limited offer" - "guaranteed" - "discover" - "check out"... If you wonder what these terms have in common, here is the answer. Brands consider them to be top performers. They are words that convert.
Great @Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.compost (one of Curagami's Top 50 Highly Recommended Content Curators)
The power of text analytics is now readily accessible through intuitive and openly available software. Running analysis is straightforward enough, as the examples in this article illustrate. However, the prerequisites of impactful insights haven’t changed. Proper problem definition, domain expertise, and stakeholder engagement are key to well-guided mining and actionable output—whether you’re improving a user interface or the broader user experience.
Thanks to @Luis Costa for this great Scoop. Was looking for something like this just the other day as we discussed ways to understand the sentiment of online reviews :). M
Klout, Context & Links
This post links to my G+ summary in prelude to my http://www.curatti.com blog post tonight. Here are some preliminary thoughts on the page of notes I took during Dixon Jones talk.
Links & The Real Value of Content
Dixon works at Majestic SEO (http://www.majesticseo.com/ ). Majestic is asking the right question - what is the value of a link. They've even created tools that help intelligently answer that question.
"Inbound links" as a measurement is clouded by "bot spam". In a great example of the power of the "flow" tool Dixon shared. Even more powerful was an example of Majestic SEO vs. two competitors. On a purely inbound link review Majestic doesn't win.
But are all of those links valuable? Value is contextual and any spammy ways of inflating inbound link numbers need to be discovered and factored out.
Once links are run through Majestic SEO's "trust flow" tool evaluating where links came from and the respective trustworthiness of sites sending links in Majestic wins the comparison.We finally have a tool to separate white and black hats.
Think of that for a second. If you were to simply use aggregate inbound links you would buy ads with Majestic's competition or, and this is worse, you might think the competition's inflated (probalby by spam) value is something you should buy.
Once the Majestic SEO tool separates wheat from chafe a more accurate and "influential" picture emerges. SEOs and Internet marketers know how to parse page spread, social following and inbound links to pierce the veil of most who spam, but, for an outsider, "most links" may translate into "most trusted".
There is the web's biggest rub. Since the web is an interconnected system discovering if real people who have real value are passionate about a site tool, or brand with metrics such as high inbound links or big pagespread (pages in Google) is the only way to make an informed decision UNTIL Majestic wrestled context and content to the ground.
Curagmai & Majestic
The reason our Startup Factory funded startup Curagami and Majestic fit together like Lego blocks is relationships between a site and its 1% Contributors, 9% Supporters and 90% readers. Curagami helps FIND the Contributors, Supporters and Readers and Majestic helps define each of member of those "tribes" by their CONTEXTUAL influence. I may not have high Klout and be irrelevant for a conversation about women's fashion, but be perfect to help discuss cycling (since I rode a bicycle across America in the summer of 2010). .
If the first job is to FIND Contributors, Supporters and Readers and the second is to ask them to JOIN with Contributors and Supporters high on the Ambassadors list then the 3rd job is to contextually empower advocates in each group. We know the future is about community and real people not bots are the building blocks of online community.
What Dixon shared today and Majestic SEO has been working hard on is helping marketers know what kind of ASK will work best for Jill, John and Bob. Jill might know women's fashion, pets and be a car mechanic in her spare time. John may know email marketing, gourmet cooking and wines. Bob may know finance and cycling.
Curagami helps find 'em & Majestic helps define 'em in order to create an ASK that works. Powerful and very cool tool since the future is about building community and not every Contributor, Supporter and Reader who visits your site is the same. As we begin to create "rich personas" thanks to tools such as Majestic and Curagami our content relevance will go up, and up and UP.
If you are thinking more content relevance = more LOVE and MONEY we agree :). M
Mapping Product Sentiment
Yesterday I wondered if we could use Jim Stengel 5 Ideals to understanding a product's human experience:
* Society (change the world).
Turns out there is a TED talk about exactly this idea. Ecologist Eric Berlow and physicist Sean Gourley used natural language processing and physics, and that part sounded a tad "black box", to map every ted talk ever given in order to understand connections and outliers.
Would love to figure out how to do something similar for product reviews. Anyone with ideas on HOW or WHO please share. Knew I should have paid more attention in Calculus :). Marty
