The microblogging giant has come a long way since co-founder Jack Dorsey's first tweet. Here are some Twitter facts and figures worth checking out.


Twitter went public in November 2013. The much ballyhooed IPO was a big hit as TWTR opened at $26.00 and closed at $44.90 in its first day of trading. Today Twitter trades at $44.60 despite a net loss of $34 million in its most recent quarterly report.

If you’re on Google+ and you’re not using one of its best features Ripples yet then you’re missing out on a fantastic way to build your community, create leads, and generate traffic.

Over the past couple of years I’ve heard on several occasions people tell me that every now and again they hop on Google Plus and give it a whirl but can’t ever seem to get anything going. First, let me be straight with you, it doesn’t happen over night. You reap what you sow. Go join an already established community, be awesome and helpful, build relationships then watch your community thrive once you start using Google+ Ripples.

This is a good tool to gauge progress in how and where your content  is getting shared.  It's the tiny down arrow carat for the dropdown menu top right of your updates.  Bottom of the Menu you'll find Ripples.  This gives insight on people in your circle who shared your content and people outside your circle who shared. This gives good indication of who you might add to your circles and engage with.

When starting out, the best advice is join some Google+ communities to find like-minded people to grow your circles.  It is just as important to share other peoples content as it is your own in order to earn recognition as someone other people would appreciate your generosity.  As in any marketing endeavor, trust is the top currency and it hold true on Google+.

Twitter Can Be Used To Predict Crime [STUDY]

Twitter Can Be Used To Predict Crime [STUDY] | digital marketing strategy | Scoop.it

Anything you tweet can and will be used against you in a court of law. At least, that’s what a new study proposes.


As Business Insider reports, researchers from the University of Virginia discovered that tweets can be used to predict certain types of crimes.


By analysing geo-located tweets, these researchers found that tweet were useful in predicting between 19 to 25 different types of crimes, including stalking, theft and assault.


Lead researcher, Matthew Gerber, says that people aren’t necessarily tweeting about crimes directly. Instead, they’re tweeting about environmental factors that could lead to a crime – such as a large group of people tweeting about getting drunk, a situation that could lead to crime.


By exploring geo-tagged tweets from Chicago neighborhoods and comparing these to the city’s crime database, the researchers were able to predict crime in the future. As the study explains:

Surprise, surprise, people rarely tweet about crimes directly.  

This research comes on the heels of other studies showing how tweets can be analyzed to predict elections, disease outbreaks and other important events.

Brand Management Strategies | Starting a new company comes with more than a fair share of problems, but it is the potential for true formation and meaningful development that keeps businesspersons coming back for more. In order to be successful, an immense devotion is required, and a big part of that success is about defining your brand and communicating that individuality to your clients. Whether it’s responding to social media posts or handing out a business card with your company’s links on it, constantly managing your brand— is an important key to business success.Brand management in the present era means not just keeping a pervasive eye on the social web, but also engaging in evocative ways with brand supporters and critics. Professionals in the field have come to accept social media as vital to their jobs, but most know that managing a company’s brand on the web is so much more than setting up shop on social websites.
