What Happens In Your Brain When People Like Your Facebook Status

What Happens In Your Brain When People Like Your Facebook Status | driving record | Scoop.it

When you post something on Facebook, you're usually doing it so people read and appreciate it. So, when people actually do that and "like" your posts, you're going to feel better about yourself. Time breaks down what's going on in your brain when that happens.

 

In research published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, researchers found that they could predict people's Facebook use by looking at how their brain reacted to positive social feedback in a scanner.

Which Science is the Most Basic?

Physics might be considered the most fundamental of all sciences, for all other sciences derive from basic principles of forces, motion, electromagnetism and... thermodynamics. And yet, physical laws are mathematical  models of the world. But mathematics itself is abstract, deriving from constructs of philosophy...

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business

You Need Start Thinking Like A Media Company To Guide The Future Of Digital Business | driving record | Scoop.it

In this article by Lee Odden on Online Marketing Blog, he introduces the next book by Michael Brito, SVP at Edelman, and the author of "Your Brand, The Next Media Company".
The article caught my attention since many points are relevant for my topic and for human content curators.

Here is some excerpts:
"Now more than ever, we need trusted sources of insight and leadership to guide the future of digital business.

Whether you work for a large brand, small business or just a consultant, you need start thinking like a media company. And the answer is right in plain sight:
- There is a content and media surplus in the market place and consumers have an attention deficit.
- Consumer’s lives’ are dynamic and unpredictable, making it impossible for any brand to reach them consistently.
- All consumers are influential, despite their Klout scores and are aiding their peers down the purchase funnel.

"What exactly is a media company?"
They have five characteristics that you should adopt when thinking overall about content marketing or content strategy.

1. Storytelling: Media companies tell stories...
2. Content: Media companies are content machines with an “always on” mentality...
3. Relevance: Media companies provide relevant content all the time to someone, somewhere...
4. Ubiquity: Media companies are everywhere. They dominate the search engine results and their content is shared daily across social media channels...
5. Agility: Media companies move quickly...

Brito also provides technology reviews of content platforms like Newscred, Contently, Compendium, Outbrain and real-time monitoring dashboards like Social Flow and the Dachis Group Real-time Marketing Platform that will help facilitate this transition..."

Guillaume | driving record | Scoop.it

Guillaume is our CEO & co-founder. Good thing Scoop.it keeps him busy or he’d spent way too much time playing video games or skiing off-piste in Tahoe.

His previous business, Musiwave, was a pioneer of mobile music back in the early 2000's, introducing many of the first hit products in that market. He grew it into the leader of its space, powering the music platforms of major mobile operators worldwide, before it was eventually acquired by Microsoft in 2007.

After graduating from Polytechnique in France, Guillaume earned a Master's degree from Stanford University back in '95.

Facebook is an extremely powerful advertising tool, but there are right ways and wrong ways to harness that power. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t use it for business-relevant posts. It just means that you cannot use it to spam the wrong messages. Before posting or promoting anything, ask yourself if you would want to see something like it on your news feed if it was from a different industry.

"Primer" Technologies For Enhancing 21st Century Citizenship

"Primer" Technologies For Enhancing 21st Century Citizenship | driving record | Scoop.it

What technologies could make the most difference? We must have new ways for citizens to self-organize, both in normal life and (especially) during crises, when normal channels may collapse, or else get taken over by the authorities for their own use. All this might require is a slight change -- or set of additions -- in the programming of the sophisticated little radio communications devices that we all carry in our pockets, nowadays.

13 Book Marketing Techniques That Engage Readers | Digital Book World | driving record | Scoop.it

It ain’t easy to turn a book into a bestseller. Harder still is for a first-time author to reach the heights of the charts. But is bookselling success a nebulous, magical achievement “ultimately in the hands of the book gods”? That’s the way Morgan Entrekin, the president and publisher of Grove Atlantic, described it in the recent New York Times article “Long Odds For Authors Newly Published” by James B. Stewart. The first part of the quote in that article quotes Entrekin stating, “A publisher can only do so much.”
