Do Shared Links Last Longer on Twitter or Facebook?

Do Shared Links Last Longer on Twitter or Facebook? | Content & Community | Scoop.it

Jeff Bullas wrote this piece and it has information we all need to know:

 

"The social web has made everyone of us publishers."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

The Web is Crowded

 

If you have a large Twitter following and 1,000′s of Facebook fans then that will help your content marketing endeavours. Many of us tweet the post once and maybe share it also on Facebook with a singular news update with a link embedded and then expect traffic to come flooding in.

 

The cruel reality is that the web is crowded with hundreds of millions of blogs, websites and social media sites and the competition for attention in a sea of noise and buzz is so intense that most links drown before they are noticed.

 

Most clicks to your links in your tweets happen immediately after you have posted an update to Twitter. As time passes the retweets and Facebook likes and sharing of the links diminishes. As the link ages, the attention your links receive reduces.

 

Do Links Last Longer on Facebook, Twitter?

 

So how long is a link “alive” before people stop caring and does the type of content and where you shared it matter?

 

According to research by Bit.ly (the link shortening service used by millions of users), after the initial post to Facebook the half life of a link was 70 minutes (the amount of time at which this link will receive half of the clicks it will ever receive after it’s reached its peak)

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation

Simon Careless wrote this post, he is an editor, publisher, oversees the Game Developers Conference shows, Gamasutra and Game Developer magazine. He has a lot to say about the massive overload of content we're all experiencing. I like his observations and we'll be hearing more from him in the near future on this subject.

 

What really caught my attention was a comment from one of his readers, Sarah Brin:

 

"Curation isn’t strictly about taste-making either–a huge part of it is becoming an interlocutor, someone who facilitates a discussion around content, as opposed to presenting content with a qualitative (and subjective) evaluation. In that regard, the democratization of curatorial tools (tumblr, twitter, all the ways we share content) is really exciting! It might usher in a new era wherein culture becomes more participatory…or it might not."

 

What are your thoughts about this?

Is it Better to Share on Google+, Facebook or Twitter?

Is it Better to Share on Google+, Facebook or Twitter? | Content & Community | Scoop.it

Jeff Bullas never disappoints, this article is packed with vital information you need to know no matter if you're curating content to build your personal brand or marketing services.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

"The survival of the social species is a digital battle that will create opportunities and disrupt traditional business models for decades to come."

 

The Battle for Social

 

This small change to Google’s search features reveals an evolution of the web that is an early indicator of the growing battle for social that will over time produce winners and losers but will also create a web that will surprise you with its speed and capabilities. The announcement and launching of Google+ saw Zuckerberg respond with a a Skype feature offering free video calls and promising more to come.

 

Social is about Sharing

 

All marketers know that if you can make something so shareable that it goes viral then you will produce results for brands that will sell products, make people famous and maybe even position your agency as part of marketing folklore.

The Power of ReTweeting: The 7 Reasons to RT on Twitter

The Power of ReTweeting: The 7 Reasons to RT on Twitter | Content & Community | Scoop.it

If you ask someone on Twitter why they enjoy tweeting, you would most definitely get varied responses. But a common answer would be it’s because they learn so much from people from all over the world.

 

For those new on Twitter you might wonder why you see people sharing a tweet with an RT at the beginning of each tweet. This is called a ReTweet. Re Tweeting started around 2008 when someone saw a tweet and wanted to share it but also wanted to be able to give credit to the person who shared it first.

 

From then on it has been a practice to RT when you find a useful content to share. ReTweeting can be powerful and here are the reasons why you should ReTweet.
