Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.

The Science and Psychology of Twitter: Why We Follow, Favorite and Share – 3cseo

The Science and Psychology of Twitter: Why We Follow, Favorite and Share – 3cseo | Choosing Course Content | Scoop.it

 

When I choose someone new to follow, when I compose a new tweet, when I share and favorite an update, I seldom think about the why. My following sessions would probably seem haphazard to an outsider, and my favoriting technique comes and goes from one strategy to another.

 

Even so, the way I use Twitter is far less random than I thought. There is science and psychology behind the way we all tweet.

 

Researchers have discovered trends in the way that we perform every major action on Twitter—favoriting, updating, sharing, and following. And there's even an interesting bit of psychology behind what makes Twitter so attractive in the first place. Here's a look at the psychology of Twitter: what makes us follow, favorite, share and keep coming back for more....

From the article:

What spurs us to follow someone on Twitter? Researchers at Georgia Tech and Michigan combined to study the factors involved in following.

 

The factors they came up with boiled down to three categories: social behaviors, message content, and social network structure. Here are the individual factors for each, starting with social behaviors:

Tweet volumeBurstiness – tweets per hourInteractions – replies, mentions, and favoritesBroadcast communication – the ratio of tweets with no @-mentionTrustworthiness of the profile – How well is the bio filled out? Is there a URL in the profile? Is there a location listed?

 

The individual factors for message content:

Positive/negative sentimentInformational content – ratio of tweets containing either a URL, RT, MT, HT, or “via”Meformer content – ratio of tweets containing self-referencing pronouns like “I,” “me,” “we,” and “us”Topic focusRetweets – how often your content gets retweetedHashtag usageTReDIX – Tweet Reading Difficulty Index (based on the frequency of real English words longer than 6 letters)

 

The individual factors in social network structure:

Reciprocity – The number of people you follow who also follow youAttention-status ratio – Total followers compared to total followingNetwork overlap – How similar are the people you follow to those a follower follows

 

Does any of this resonate with how you choose who to follow?

Why there are so few 20th century ebooks available

Why there are so few 20th century ebooks available | Choosing Course Content | Scoop.it

(Paul Heald) If you’re looking to read a best-selling book from 1922 or earlier on your Kindle, you’re in luck. Just about all popular books published between 1913 and 1922 (94% to be exact) are available today as ebooks, often for free.

The 24 ingredients for a delicious content strategy | Choosing Course Content | Scoop.it
In content strategy, people often focus on the most obvious part (the content creation) and don’t quite realise that there’s a lot more to it.

Charlie Southwell (@charliesaidthat) brought this article to my attention. It's an interesting analysis on how to bring content strategy together. As Rahel Bailie posted on Charlie's Facebook account where he posted this, she noted that much of this article could be talked at even longer length about some of these components, and she's right.  Take a look, and see what you think...I think much of it makes a lot of sense.
