zeebox - a new way to watch television

zeebox - a new way to watch television | Film Futures | Scoop.it

zeebox is the new way to watch television. It's social, - connecting you to your TV - watching friends, so you can chat, share and tweet about whatever's on. And it's clever - helping you find out more about anything you're watching with links (zeetags) popping up instantly as you watch. Amazing.

Social Media Optimization Tips from TopRank

By you know I’m as sold as one can be on the intersection of Social Media, SEO and Content Marketing. It’s the essence of the core principles of information Discovery, Consumption and Engagement that I talk about in Optimize and at conferences like PRSA International in Orlando this week.

Information production, sharing and consumption is accelerating faster than marketers (or consumers) can keep up with. A lot of that information is user generated content from social sharing and networking sites. Internet Marketers have long been savvy about creating, optimizing and promoting content that’s findable and relevant for target audiences. Marketers aren’t the only corporate departments creating content in need of an audience though.

Public Relations, Media Relations, Corporate Communications, Investor Relations and many other groups part of corporate MarCom publish content to the web. Audiences may vary, from journalists and reporters doing story research to investors and potential business partners. Increasingly, PR departments are publishing direct to consumer news content, ala “brand as publisher”.

My presentation at PRSA International in Orlando focused on how PR practitioners can realize the emerging opportunities for shifts in consumer information trends, how PR content can be optimized and socialized, tools to scale and practical social media optimization tactics to elevate search visibility of social media and social news content. Here’s the embedded deck from Slideshare:

Storify Launches New Story Editor Making It Easier To Write New Content and Bring In Social Media Stuff

My take: Storify launches its Storypad making it much easier to find and integrate new social media stories and content elements in your curated newsradar.

 

From the Storify blog: The search and the editor sides of the interface have been switched to put a higher priority on writing your own text for stories.

 

Photo searches are displayed in gallery format, and pictures appear larger in stories.

 

One new tool we think users will really enjoy using is a revised bookmarklet and all-new Storypad that lets you collect and save media from all over the web and add it to your story.

 

You can easily share what you've gathered with other Storify users, and you can use media from anyone's Storypad in any story. So whatever you find online can become part of your story.
