Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | using my shovel to Scoop | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →

End of School Roundup: Using Creation & Curation in Education | using my shovel to Scoop | Scoop.it
According to the Content Marketing Institute, original content should be the cornerstone of your content marketing.

When deciding where to be decide first why you want to be part of a particular site and how it will help you to reach your target audience or what benefit you will have by participating on this platform. Use tools that add to your efforts and are not time wasters. Targeting an audience you don't want to reach is a time waster. #socialnetworking#socialmedia#onlinemarketing

Working in the world of entrepreneurs and startups has given me a whole new appreciation for the phrase "fake it 'til you make it." This isn't to say that everyone who is just getting started in their companies or careers in general is completely faking it, but just that they are doing the right things to position themselves correctly before they might actually be a full-fledged expert.

In this post on Entrepreneur.com, the extremely smart Dorie Clark tackles a question that almost all of us have tried to figure out at one point or another: how do I make myself seem like I know what I'm doing when I'm just getting started?

Thanks to Google’s algorithm changes and manual web spam actions for "unnatural links", people are nervous about backlinks. People who use the CommentLuv WordPress plugin need to be especially concerned about dofollow links left in comments.
