Si è parlato addirittura di un contagio, ma ha l’aria di essere tutt’altro che una malattia perché ciò che sta diffondendosi a macchia d’olio da nord a sud (e viceversa) è un gesto di generosità: regalare un libro a qualcuno che non si conosce. Si chiama “libro sospeso” e il meccanismo è semplicissimo: tu entri in una libreria e mentre acquisti un libro per te contemporaneamente ne acquisti un altro per chi arriverà dopo di te e vorrà portarselo via.
The age of innocence is over. Social media is moving from adolescence to post pubescent, facial hair growing adulthood. In 2008 when I started on Facebook and Twitter it was fun, frivolous, and social. Social media was unencumbered by the past, encouraged ...
Excerpt from the article by Social Media Examiner: "Here you’ll discover five must-have tools every Facebook page admin can use to create and share content that kills.
#1: Create a Monitoring System Hyperalerts is a versatile tool you’re going to love. It notifies you via email about items you choose such incoming Facebook comments or messages, published posts and more. You could rely on Facebook’s messages and the activity log, but they aren’t always reliable and you can miss things.
You can customize your alerts based on type of post (updates, comments or messages), who’s posting (fans, admins or anyone) and how often you want to be notified. Where Hyperalerts really shines is in its ability to monitor competitors’ Facebook pages. Hyperalerts identifies the type of content other pages are sharing and what their fans are saying, then sends you an email with specific posts and comments from their fans.
#2: Add Functionality You can leverage Facebook page tabs to share content from your other social profiles as well. You can display your latest tweets, share your favorite Pinterest boards or create a video wall to display videos from your YouTube or Vimeo channel. Third-party services like ShortStack provide an easy solution to that problem. ShortStack offers hundreds of easy-to-use templates, or you can build your own if you want. Both options are customizable.
Facebook tabs aren’t available on mobile devices. ShortStack lets you create versions of tabs that are mobile-friendly. You just have to share the permalink of the tab in a regular status update to give fans access.
#3: Find Trending Hashtags Tagboard is a free tool that lets you do cross-platform hashtag searches. You can search Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Vine to see which hashtags are trending, which overlap and which match your social marketing plan.
#4: Create Engaging Images Visual content is a huge factor in success on any platform. But if you don’t have an in-house graphic designer or access to Adobe Photoshop, don’t despair. Even if you aren’t a designer, Canva is a free online alternative that helps you create engaging images in no time.
#5: Use a Good Content Curation Tool You can’t be everywhere at once and you can’t spend all of your time creating new content. If you’re a Facebook page admin, you know the importance of a good content curation tool.
One of my favorites is Swayy. It analyzes the material (and its sources) you share on Facebook, and then recommends content based on related keywords. If you like something Swayy suggests, you can share it on your connected social accounts (including Facebook) or schedule it to publish later..."
