Ask Big Questions Social Platform Earns A #StealThis

Ask Big Questions Social Platform Earns A #StealThis | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Can we change the world through better conversation? We believe we can. We don't have many opportunities today to develop relationships with people of different backgrounds who may hold different viewpoints.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

#StealThis

I like the immediacy of this platform. You signup with Twitter (or Facebook) and you post. May have to steal this idea for Cure Cancer Starter. Well done, great use of social as simultaneously platform, infrastructure and content. Cool. 

Gets better. When you post they respond with @(your twitter) responses. They just let me know you can use Facebook too and immediately incorporate friends. This is a very cool use of social media tools as platform. There are several valuable lessons here in the use of OPP (Other People's Platforms) including:

* Use scaled platforms so people don't have to repeat on yours.

* Don't make people learn new things use established conventions.

* Make it falling off a log easy to signup and create an account.

* When any says anything, RESPOND.

* RESPOND with real people, heart and soul (no canned junk).

* Be present to the conversations happening and everything works better.

 

Cool idea well done, and, as I said on my Facebook page, bound to be the future of something.

West Texas Blizzard - Save Lives With Social Media - Curagami

West Texas Blizzard - Save Lives With Social Media - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Stuck In Mobile With Memphis Blues Again
I'm stuck in Van Horn West Texas thanks to the day after Christmas blizzard. Stuck also because the highways (I10 and I20) have been closed. This experience made are realize something important every brand manager and web team needs to know.  

How would you answer this question, "What 3 things are you doing to connect with customers in real time in 2016?" If "mobile" isn't part of at least 2 of your answers you aren't ready for 2016. TxDot, the Texas Department of Transportation, isn't ready for 2016 and this post shares why. 

Post also shares ideas on how to connect such as:

  • Assign A Social Media Master – Someone responsible for aggregating ALL social information about an event and sharing across platforms
  • Create Event Hashtags – Create hashtags such as #dec15i10i20 to FORM a community then aggregate from multiple sources using YOUR event hashtag
  • Live Video and Photo Feeds – Why can’t we SEE the problem and then the resolution? Seeing = believing and seeing the parking lot that I-10 became east of Van Horn would reduce the number of motorists driving toward the abyss.

 

Learn more about how your company, team and brand can win in an emergency by curating content and developing community in real time.
