A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic]

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch


The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds.



****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.


**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind and imagine how it would look if you added what one of the readers said below.


One reader's comment:


Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


Excerpt:


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.


** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.


Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.


Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads

were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.

We’re Curating Cool Curators (and Want More!) | Content Curation on Inside Flipboard | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

“Cool Curators” is the Flipboard name for people who collect and share (usually via Twitter or a blog) interesting stuff from around the Web. These folks have their own category in our Content Guide, and still others are scattered about in places like Art & Photos and Tech & Science.

 

A few more cool curators are building curated sections just for Flipboard. Take @DodoFlip, for example, whose collection of “endangered objects (and other stuff)” is actually tied to a book released by HarperCollins.....

Photo Curation Goes Mainstream - Fotopedia Arrives on Flipoard

The mobile Web is fostering a remarkable renaissance in traditional art forms such as photography—surprisingly, right alongside the explosion of videos, games, gossip, tweets, and other distractions.


And if there’s one organization that has figured out how to use the Web and the latest mobile gadgets to showcase great images, it’s Paris- and San Francisco-based Fotonauts, creator of the online photo curation community Fotopedia and seven related mobile apps.


I’ve been following this company for three years now, and I think they make the most elegant photo apps available for tablets and smartphones, including the marquee Fotopedia Heritage and National Parks apps and the more self-contained travelogues Above France, Dreams of Burma, Memory of Colors, North Korea, and Paris.


With the Fotopedia magazine on Flipboard “the goal is to push the stories everywhere, so that we extend our ecosystem in a huge way,” says Jean-Marie Hullot, the Apple veteran who founded Fotonauts in 2006. “I think we are the only one in the industry equipped to deal with thousands of pictures, absorb them, make sense of them, curate them, give them the right structure, and distribute the product.” Even as it makes its Flipboard debut, the company is rolling out other publishing and business-model changes designed to make the venture-funded startup into “a photo platform for the 21st century,” in Hullot’s words.

The Evolution of Digital: Entering the Era of Curation

The Evolution of Digital: Entering the Era of Curation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Thought leaders from major brands discuss how digital technology and the use of curation is helping consumers connect with brands on many platforms. Lots on insights and good information.

 

What caught my attention:

 

"How are we consuming content? How we're being effected by what we read. The social fabric of how we consume media is changing. We get news on our smartphones, Ipads, accessing the social graph through multiple channels. We're never unplugged, we're always checking FB, Twitter, email."

 

Trusted souces who curate quality content consistently by adding context, will be very important as all of this evolves. Brands who educate their consumers on how to access their content in ways that fit their consumption habits and make it user friendly will thrive.

News360 2.0 Personalizes News Aggregation

News360 2.0 Personalizes News Aggregation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

I just ran across this post from August 10th, I didn't see this before and maybe some of you didn't.  The new personalization layer in News360 is still automated, but it harnesses the user's own human qualities.

 

Here's an intro:

 

"News360, a news reader app available on most mobile devices and tablets, has just announced version 2.0, which adds a layer of personalization to the news shown to each user, whereas it was just an aggregator before."

 

News360, a news reader app available on most mobile devices and tablets, has just announced version 2.0, which adds a layer of personalization to the news shown to each user, whereas it was just an aggregator before. The update also launches a beta Web version of the service, so you can use it on the desktop. Finally, the new version adds a timeline view, which allows you to track a story's development over time.

 

When News360 launched, it simply pulled in coverage of stories from multiple sources, like Google News does, as well as Twitter discussions of the topic. It offered a few ways for users to go more in-depth, with image galleries, great definitions of terms and the ability to manually add more personalized feeds by topic. It certainly provided more content than a human-curated service, like Newsy, but it lacked that human quality of editorial discernment. The new personalization layer in News360 is still automated, but it harnesses the user's own human qualities.

Majority of Millennials Value Social Media Over a Steady Paycheck

Majority of Millennials Value Social Media Over a Steady Paycheck | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

For her blog, Marketing Pilgrim, Cynthia Boris brings us some eye-opening findings from Part Two of the 2011 Cisco Connected World Technology Report.


This part of the report is based upon interviews with 100 young professionals in their 20s, from each of 14 countries.  (Part one was based upon the same sample size but using college students).


The results are at the same time somewhat unsurprising yet very eye-opening.


Here are a few of the findings:


***56% of college students said that if they encountered a company that banned access to social media, they would either not accept a job offer or would join and find a way to circumvent corporate policy.


***40% of college students and 45% of young employees said they would accept a lower-paying job that had more flexibility with regard to device choice, social media access, and mobility than a higher-paying job with less flexibility


***27% of college students said that staying on Facebook was more important than partying, dating, listening to music or hanging out with friends.


(Cynthia's son suggests that these numbers are two low and that the real diehards were too busy on Facebook to respond!)


***66% of students and 58% of employees cite a mobile device (laptop, smartphone, tablet) as “the most important technology in their lives.


The takeaways here from a marketing perspective are:


***GenYers are always on. 


***The line between work and leisure hours are being erased.


***"Young professionals now choose their lunch location based on the instant coupon that shows up on their phone at 11:00 am. They’re shopping for holiday gifts while sitting in a meeting and they’re making weekend getaway plans in the middle of the week."


Food for thought for all of us in business or embarking upon new ventures.

Flipboard: 3.5 million downloads, 550 million monthly pageviews

Flipboard: 3.5 million downloads, 550 million monthly pageviews | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

 

 

If you had any doubt about what was happening with Flipboard, these numbers are likely to change your mind. When we first played with Flipboard, we saw it as a complete game-changer, and that has obviously rung true.

 

Speaking from the stage at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Flipboard CEO Mike McCue has been talking numbers, and big numbers at that. How big? Here’s a rundown:

 

3 months ago, Flipboard was doing 250 million pageviews. While that number is huge, Flipboard is now seeing 550 million views per month, having been downloaded over 3.5 million times.

 

With that in mind, McCue was asked when people were consuming all of this information. Unsurprisingly, he says that people primiarly use Flipboard between 8pm and 11pm, as well as on weekends. Beyond that, it’s used heavily in the morning hours as people are having breakfast and drinking their coffee.

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

Scobleizer interviews the CEO of News360, really interesting and this product is definitely something to take a look at. Watch this video, it's not going to do streaming, it's a news reader, business, sports, stories, breaking news. They'll show you what's happening on a topic from many other sources, they give you an excerpt, they scroll you to the exact spot in the story, it's like google news but done much better, paying attention to the user's experience.

 

Who is this app best for?

 

Everyone who is interested in the news will be their market. They have 5,000 users right now and anticipate 20,000 by the end of the year. This app is free.

News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game

 

September 1, 2011 By Robert Scoble

 

Posted by Kat Armstrong.

 

You’ll find a lot of news apps for your iPad, but there’s virtually nothing available for Android, the iPhone, a RIM Playbook, Windows Phone 7 devices or even your desktop. News360 is changing the game. The application makes use of semantic analysis to keep you informed of major ongoing events – and to give you content that is relevant to you.

 

The company’s CEO took the time to talk to me about the reasons their offering is something that you’re going to want. This app is in a very crowded space. They’re not only having to compete with things such as Flipboard. News360 also has to watch out for stand-alone apps such as the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. What makes this particular product stand out above the crowd?

AOL launches first Curated Tablet Magazine

AOL launches first Curated Tablet Magazine | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
AOL has launched its first tablet magazine, Editions, to take on publishers such as News Corp and Seven Publishing.


It is the latest in a string of personalised ’magazine’ apps designed specifically for tablets, in particular Apple’s iPad.

Earlier this year News Corp launched its iPad-only news proposition The Daily to much fanfare, while Richard Branson’s lifestyle iPad-only magazine, Project, produced by Seven Publishing, will soon reach its tenth edition.
