40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

Last month I shared 40+ networks that you could consider depending on your niche or interests. As part of my commitment to this community, I shared that I will expand on this list througout 2012. So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation!I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right. However before I list the sites lets talk curation.

 

What is social media curation?

 

Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin.

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 23, 2012 3:05 AM
Hi Carey, I consider scoop.it as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

Gandhi’s Top 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World

Gandhi’s Top 10 Fundamentals for Changing the World | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”

 

“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problem.”

 

“If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.”

 

Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947.

So let’s just move on to some of my favourite tips from Mahatma Gandhi.

 

1. Change yourself.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

 

“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.”...

The Twitter Hashtag Game

The Twitter Hashtag Game | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

This post is part of the “Marketing That Works” Ideas Contest, showcasing 20 of the most innovative marketing ideas from the blogosphere’s up and coming marketers. If you like the post, please show your support for the contestant by tweeting, liking, sharing, and commenting below!

 

For my marketing idea, I created something called the “Hashtag Game.”

 

Like Naomi Dunford said: “It’s the shit that we do to get people to buy our shit.” There are many things we can do to attract potential readers and customers such as: producing powerful content; word of mouth; Facebook marketing; free eBooks to lure people in; and guest posting.

 

There are also the little, effortless things that we forget to do that can add up overtime: adding hashtags at the end of our tweets.

 

For example: If I were tweeting “Engagement From Scratch” . . . and let’s just say I don’t have 50,000 followers but I want to spread the word about it.

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

Integrating social media services in your website design is vital if you want to make it easy for readers to share your content. While some users are happy with the social media buttons that come built into their design template, the majority of WordPress users install a plugin to automatically embed sharing links on their pages. Many of you will find that a plugin does exactly what you need; others not so much. Some are poorly coded, and most include services that you just don’t need. And while some great social media plugins are out there, they don’t integrate with every WordPress design.

 

If you aren’t comfortable editing your WordPress templates, a plugin is probably the best solution. If you are comfortable making a few edits to your theme, then consider manually integrating social media so that you have more control over what services appear on your website.

How Ideas Spread With Social Media

How Ideas Spread With Social Media | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

Have you heard of the expression social media myth? Would you recognize a myth if you heard one?

 

There are those who believe that social media is about joining the conversation, engaging with your customers and being authentic.

 

Then there are others who believe that if you can’t measure it, you can’t control it. For them, it’s all about setting goals, experimenting, testing, analyzing and measuring.

 

Why can’t we all get along?
The fact of the matter is that both are equally important. What draws people to social media (whether for business or pleasure) is the opportunity to have conversations with others and to share the stories that are important to them...

Why Are People Following You on Twitter

Why Are People Following You on Twitter | Funteresting Stuff | Scoop.it

In a post by Christina Reed entitled Thoughts of a Concerned Tweeter over on Smart Boy Designs, the author raised the point of “Why aren’t more people on Twitter asking the question, ‘what made you follow me?’ This is crucial information.”

 

This led me to remember some steps I had seen on how to find out the answer to this question by analyzing Twitter lists you have been added to using Excel and Wordle by both Rick Galan and Ari Herzog.

 

The following are updated directions for creating a Wordle using Excel 2010 and Open Office Calc 3.3...
