Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 14, 2014 11:33 AM

We should share this with adults. I know teachers (I use the word loosely) who scream at their audience, attack dissenting voices, and do not check spelling and grammar because it is more important to be out there than be a good role model. The interesting thing is the teaches who do this do it face-to-face and digitally.

Should you repeat your tweets? Facts and figures from 1M tweets

Should you repeat your tweets? Facts and figures from 1M tweets | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it
It is mainstream that to share a news on Twitter one should repeat it a few times, for the simple reason that your followers aren't up online on twitter all day and that they are likely to miss your great news.
At Wisemetrics we like to look a statistics from lots of data points, and since we have our hand on around 1B tweets, we thought we could get some concrete numbers about if one should repeat tweets.

Interesting! I try not to repeat my Tweets (about a latest blog post or article) more than 3X maybe I need to rethink that!

Sue Osborne's curator insight, August 25, 2014 7:06 PM

I am increasingly of the opinion that, whilst it is great to keep up with people I know and love on Facebook, I am losing something too. My very best friend is NOT on Facebook and I have to make the effort to touch base with her via email, SMS and actual phone calls. It IS much more personal that way.  I tend not to look at Facebook as often through the day as I used to (used to always be open in the background). Some days I don't even look at it at all. However, Twitter IS open all the time - keeping me up to date with conferences, media announcements and the latest articles and developments in my profession. I LOVE it. I can actually see a day coming where I leave Faccebook behind and concentrate communicating on a more personal level with friends and use Twitter even more as an information professional.
