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 | Energy, Etc.... | 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....

Stephen Dale's curator insight, July 8, 2014 5:24 AM

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?

Broad Strokes: Five Key Leadership Lessons From Billionaire Eli Broad

Broad Strokes: Five Key Leadership Lessons From Billionaire Eli Broad | Energy, Etc.... | Scoop.it

When Peter Drucker died in 2005, billionaire Eli Broad was among those who lavished praise on him, noting that the legendary management writer’s insights “seemed rather simple but, in fact, were very profound.”

Today, the same thing might well be said of Broad, the founder of two Fortune 500 companies, an internationally renowned art collector and museum patron, and a celebrated philanthropist and civic leader.

 

In his new book, The Art of Being Unreasonable, Broad shares his own principles for success—nearly all of which are positively Drucker-like. Scores of leadership, management and life lessons are sprinkled throughout the book. Here are five that I found especially powerful:
