Pinterest and Scoopit a Great Combination!

Pinterest and Scoopit a Great Combination! | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

This is a post after my own heart, brought to my attention by gdecugis, thanks Guillaume, you know I love Scoopit, glad to spread the word about this winning duo, Pinterest and Scoopit.

 

Feel free to visit my other topic, Pinterest Watch to learn more about this social network

 

Here's my commentary based on my experience of using Scoopit and Pinterest

 

To me, Pinterest and Scoopit go hand and hand. They are both visual and it's important to consider if you're on Scoopit already or thinking about it, expressing yourself on both platforms, (if it makes sense for your business) because it can be very powerful. 

 

Here are some of the reasons it can help your business:

 

Scoopit is a platform that showcases your expertise, share your hobbies and other interests through content in a beautiful format. It is part of your online personna and it's a vibrant community I have met some wonderful people here.

 

Pinterest is also a community with some of the same people from Scoopit and many others, (new people are joining everyday). Linking your posts from Scoopit to your pins on Pinterest not only drives traffic to your scoopit site and visa versa but those people can see another side of you that you can't express there.

 

Pinterest is like a delicious menu of visuals that captivate and attract people to you. I have put all my business boards at the top and my interest boards underneath them.

 

Pinterest gives people the ability to see who you are beyond your posts. If you're a brand, this is where you can create an online story of text and visuals that gives consumers points of entry through common interests. It's a brilliant way to do business.

 

I could go on and on but I'll let you see for yourself how I've combined Scoopit and Pinterest together which continues to produce unbelievable results, increase in traffic and brand new relationships from both sites.

Thanks so much Robin, I appreciate it!

Great insight, thank you! In the constant stream of innovations - sometimes fads too - it is comforting to find complete write-ups that give enough "meat" to what is going on online, and why some tools get traction.
Beth Kanter's comment, February 25, 2012 1:32 PM
Jan, thanks for bringing G's post to our attention. I'm excited about the combination of the two tools like you are! And thanks for including me in your collection!

How to See Google+ in iPad.

How to See Google+ in iPad. | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

Like Facebook and Twitter, Google+ is also late in releasing apps for tablets. This has left a lot of tablet users disappointed, especially the more popular iPad users.

Although the iPhone version works with iPad, it is not optimized for iPad screen resolution and hence lacks visual appeal and usability.

Here is an alternative app called G-Pad which brings Google+ on iPad.

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn And The Hierarchy Of Needs

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn And The Hierarchy Of Needs | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

This infographic takes Maslow’s theory and looks at the social media tools that fulfill these needs. While these platforms do not provide any physiological nourishment, it could be argued that Facebook and Google+ do help us maintain a sense of belonging through connections to friends and family. Twitter is good for our self-esteem, inasmuch as it empowers us to reach out to others and self-promote, and LinkedIn somewhat satisfies our need for safety, providing security for employment.

Flickr disables Pinterest pins on all copyrighted images (exclusive) | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

As the third most popular source of content on digital pin-board site Pinterest, Flickr and its photographers are subject to frequent acts of copyright infringement. But a site-wide update to Flickr promises to better protect members and their copyrighted works.

The Yahoo-owned photo-sharing site has just added Pinterest’s newly introduced do-not-pin code to all Flickr pages with copyrighted or protected images.

The Value of Being LinkedIn [Infographic]

The Value of Being LinkedIn [Infographic] | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

When Twitter and LinkedIn were hitting their first wave of buzz, waves of critics surfaced to let everyone know it was ‘too little, too late’ — social was already done by Facebook and better. That juvenile analysis has given way to the realization that social is not just a single stream, but rather a rushing river of which there will be several branches. One of those branches is the professional social space, of which LinkedIn is king.
