Why do we SHARE what we DO NOT READ? Meet the (dis)Attention Web

Why do we SHARE what we DO NOT READ? Meet the (dis)Attention Web | Digital Media | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, there was yet another lengthy public debate about Upworthy, the two-year-old publisher that has become one of the most popular sites on Facebook due to its knack for overselling its bite-size content with “curiosity gap” headlines like, “Why Is Bill Nye Acting Like A Lunatic? Because He Doesn’t Want To Get Blown Up, That’s Why.”

How 'sticky' is Facebook?

How 'sticky' is Facebook? | Digital Media | Scoop.it

For most Facebook users, the social network has become a fully integrated part of our life. Our personalities now mesh with the online world in the form of Facebook making us all one step closer to eventually that in the not too distant future we will all in some small way become cyborgs. So the question becomes, how ingrained is Facebook into our lives?

With hundreds of cable channels, on-demand videos, HD video game consoles, and massive libraries of e-books all calling for our attention, Facebook continues to stand out as a major player for our time and attention making it one of the stickiest websites in the world.

The real Data Sources for Social Media Analysis and Insights: Facebook vs Twitter | Digital Media | Scoop.it
Gnip, DataSift and Topsy are sanctioned tweet resellers while Facebook keeps its conversations under wraps.

Social data is the nectar all brands want to drink, but tapping into the source can be a costly and arduous undertaking.

Consider Facebook and Twitter, the suppliers with the most scale to offer. They have drastically different approaches when it comes to meting out access to the millions of conversations occurring daily on their platforms. And in Twitter’s case, the approach seems subject to constant change.

Users who arrive at News Sites via Facebook spend Less Time, view Fewer Pages, return Less Often

Users who arrive at News Sites via Facebook spend Less Time, view Fewer Pages, return Less Often | Digital Media | Scoop.it

Facebook’s efforts to cozy up to media organizations appear to be timely, as Internet users who arrive at the 26 news websites analyzed in a new study from Pew Research Center via directly typing in those sites’ URLs or via bookmarks spend far more time on those sites, view more pages, and return more times per month.

Pew analyzed three months’ worth of data from comScore for those 26 sites, and it found that Internet users who arrived directly or via bookmarks spent an average of four minutes and 36 seconds per visit, compared with just one minute and 42 seconds for those arriving via Facebook.

 

The gap was even wider when it came to pages viewed per month, as direct visitors averaged 24.8, versus just 4.2 for Facebook visitors.

Looking at Instagram’s Best - January 2014 | Digital Media | Scoop.it

By now, you know that posting on Instagram is essential for your brand. But why are you using it, and how? This year, we will be monitoring the most engaging brands of Instagram to find just what it is that makes an Instagram campaign a smash hit. Here are January’s results.

 

The best Instagram accounts for January all manipulated the network’s unique capability to visualize a corporate mission.

 

Through sharing product images, glorifying past accomplishments, or using photography or video to share captivating imagery associated with the brand or its industry, the best accounts controlled the conversation around their brand. They crafted a visual iconography that fans could associate with their name, and brought fans into the conversation about what that brand means. In order to do this, they used hashtags – relevantly – to give fans a way to input themselves into this larger vision.

Federico Francioni's insight:

One of the most pressing questions about Facebook’s future revolves around teen usage. However, a new study by Forrester shows that maybe teens don’t hate Facebook after all.

Forrester surveyed more than 4,500 U.S. online users between 12 and 17 about their habits on social networks and apps. Among apps they use “all the time,” both Facebook and Instagram finished ahead dof Snapchat.

XXX World 2: similarities and differences in online porn and sex searches

XXX World 2: similarities and differences in online porn and sex searches | Digital Media | Scoop.it

Considering the huge success achieved by the first post “XXX World: Most Searched Porn Terms By Country and State & Average Daily Impressions“, I can definitely say that this is a true HOT topic.

So, here we are with some brand new infographics to better understand the topic, thanks to Vincenzo Cosenza aka @VinCos… enjoy!

What are people looking for, when they are looking for sex? Speaking of web searches, Google knows a lot about this stuff, obviously, but doesn’t tell. PornMD, instead, has decided to share some information about sex searches related to PornHub properties (PornHub is the most visited porn website of the world). A new section called PornMD LIVE shows what users from all over the globe are searching for, in real time.

Another section shows the top 10 most commonly searched terms on the network over a 6 months period, for each country.

So I have decided to aggregate these data in order to visualize similiarities and differences among sex searches from different countries.
Sankey diagram allows to easely see countries on the left and searches on the right. Common keywords are represented by bigger boxes.

Overall there is a tendency to search for themselves: for example, the top search term for Italy is “Italian”, Germany’s is “Germany” and so on.
Common sex fantasies in Europe are related to: amateur, mature, massage, casting, MILF, teen, anal.
But there are countries like Ireland, Romania, Hungary, Finland, Ukraine, that have peculiar, and sometimes weird, porn tastes. For example, Irish are looking for “drunk” people, Romanians and Hungarians for “mom and son” scenes.

The Selfie phenomenon: a brand new research and how a selfie just become the most-retweeted tweet of all time

The Selfie phenomenon: a brand new research and how a selfie just become the most-retweeted tweet of all time | Digital Media | Scoop.it

Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year is also one of the most fascinating movements in social is that of the selfie. Part vanity, part communication, part fun, and part absurdity, selfies represent a new generation of #selfieexpression cum egotistical emoticons…but not necessarily in a bad way. Nevertheless, the psychology and science behind selfies are strangely fascinating and therefore I continue to study and report on its evolution.

Selfiecity, a new research project, studies Instagram data from five cities around the world including Bangkok, Berlin, Moscow, New York, and Sao Paulo. Wired initially reported on Selfiecity’s initial findings. I didn’t want to be selfie’ish with the information so, I’m sharing the highlights with you here.

Right now, there are more than 79 million pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #selfie. You can add another 7 million for #selfies and 1 million for #selfienation. Not counted though, are the number of selfies that don’t include a meta reference beyond the visual that you are indeed looking at a selfie.
