How Will MIT's Reverse Engineering Of Twitter's Trending Topics Algorithm Impact Twitter's Advertising Business? - Forbes | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

Why algorithms aren't the key to Twitter campaigns

 

SUMMARY: MIT researchers are reverse-engineering the algorithms used to determine personalized trending topics on Twitter -- but that won't necessarily give brands an easy way to game the system, experts say. Predicting what will trend and generating and effectively promoting trend-worthy content are very different skills, explains Eric Dykstra. "If a brand really wants everyone to see their hash tag or trending topic, they're still going to pay for a promoted trend," he writes.

The Social Sickness - INFOGRAPHIC

The Social Sickness - INFOGRAPHIC | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

The Internet has become the building block of information creation and storage in the modern age. It’s a place where we can create websites, publications, blogs, and micro-blogs; then transfer that knowledge to people across the globe.

Social media has become one of the greatest harnessers of this technology and provides us with a multitude of platforms in which to engage and share content. With all of this social media bliss distracting us, sickness has also come knocking.
We have surrendered to the temptation to check our phones every two minutes to see how many likes our Instagram photos have, how many retweets our Twitter account got, and who commented on our Facebook posts...
The characters portrayed in this infographic bring us face-to-face with these tendencies, and shed insight into the types of personalties affected. Whether you’re an unabashed alert-lover, verb creator, or someone who would rather use the “like” button than ever fully engage with your friends ever again — there’s a 'social media sickness' for you.

Tuiteratura, un nuevo formato que mejora el aprendizaje

Tuiteratura, un nuevo formato que mejora el aprendizaje | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it
Los universitarios que se comunican con textos de 140 caracteres de la red social Twitter son mejores estudiantes y escritores, concluye una investigadora en Estados Unidos.

 

La red social Twitter se ha transformado en la plataforma para el nacimiento de un nuevo formato literario que mejora el desempeño de los estudiantes universitarios, según una investigación realizada en la Universidad del Estado de Michigan (MSU, por sus siglas en inglés) en Estados Unidos.
Los estudiantes que tuitean como parte de su instrucción están más compenetrados con el contenido de sus cursos, con los profesores y con sus otros compañeros. Además reciben notas más altas, sostiene el estudio.

 

Twitter está cambiando la manera como se lee y se escribe y creando un nuevo tipo de "tuiteratura", dijo Christine Greenhow, profesora del Departamento de Psicología y Tecnología de la Educación de MSU, que condujo la investigación.
Cooperación y reacción
Hay más de 350 millones de usuarios activos enviando más de 175 mensajes al día, según el estudio de la académica que aparece publicado en la revista especializada Educational Forum.
Greenhow, quien también estudia el crecimiento de la redes sociales entre escolares, señaló que en menos de dos años el uso de Twitter se ha doblado entre los adolescentes de Estados Unidos.

 

Twitter fue creado en 2006 con una serie de reglas que incluyen signos numerales, límite de caracteres, URLs (direcciones web) cortas y espacios libres para permitir re-tuiteos.
En este nuevo ambiente digital, la profesora Greenhow sostiene que los jóvenes estudiantes tienen que desarrollar una nueva forma de escribir, la habilidad de comunicarse en múltiples medios.
"Una manera de juzgar si algo es una nueva forma literaria es si permite que nuevos actos sociales sean posibles", indicó. "Twitter definitivamente ha cambiado nuestra práctica social".
Para comunicarse dentro de la tuitósfera hay que hacerlo usando las reglas gramaticales de ese entorno. Se necesita cierta destreza para escribir en menos de 140 caracteres. También hay que entender las convenciones de los signos numerales y cómo responder directamente y cuándo retuitear.
Es un nuevo estilo de escritura, un nuevo tipo literatura en que la hay expertos que lo hacen muy bien y otros que tienen que ir desarrollando sus habilidades, resaltó la académica.

"Hay una tuiteratura que está emergiendo a medida que lo impreso y los tuits convergen", concluyó.
"Es algo que es muy real. Es una combinación de varios elementos: el material impreso, lo que está en internet y la experiencia real del usuario".

Creo que twitter empleado con estrategias didácticas innovadoras, hace que la clase sea más provechosa, divertida, significativa y actualizada, generando indiscutiblemente aprendizajes más sólidos, compartidos y con TIC.

Como alumnos debemos reconocer que es inevitable tener el móvil encima de la mesa e ir mirándolo, quizá es una oportunidad para los profesores? Interesante comentario Norman Trujillo

Colectivo Virtual, creo que se podrían diseñar ciertas actividades para utilizar el móvil o la internet, al menos, dentro del aula de clases ... para poco a poco ir extendiendo dicha experiencia a otros espacios. Para ello debemor ir desarrollando ciertas actitudes y valores como: trabajo colaborativo, autonomía, responsabilidad, ética, entre otros.

Advertising on Twitter

Advertising on Twitter | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

Twitter is a very powerful social network for online advertising and marketing for your business — with an estimated online audience representing 15% of all adult internet users and 26% of the coveted 18-29 year old demographic, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center. We recently shared some valuable Twitter tips for business on this blog. This week, I want to talk about two popular Twitter advertising solutions to help you better target customers and increase your business Twitter following.


Promoted Accounts and Promoted Tweets:
The first is Promoted Accounts where the Twitter teams analyses your current following and then it searches for people with similar interests. When a match is found, Twitter recommends you in the “follow section” to each of these users. Ultimately this service helps you generate additional followers with users who share a common demographic and/or interest.


Promoted Tweets allows Twitter to promote your best tweets in front of a targeted audience. Again your tweets will be promoted to people who are already interested in your line of work.
Both of these services only charge you when a user interacts with your account. You set the limit for the budget and then Twitter does the rest.


Twitter Advertising:
Like Facebook, Twitter offers very targeted advertising so that you can generate more followers that will be interested in your business. You can advertise in the following ways:

Promoted Tweets – this service expands the reach of certain tweets. Promoted Tweets can be targeted to search results or to user timelines. Promoted Trends – Use Promoted Trends to drive conversations and interest around your brand or product by capturing a user’s attention on Twitter. This service is still in beta but you can sign up if you want to give this a shot. Promoted Accounts – This service allows you to quickly scale a follower-base of advocates and influencers for your brand. Twitter says that whether you are gearing up for a big product release or looking to expand your online presence, building a strong base of engaged Twitter followers who share and amplify your messages can help your marketing take off. The Promoted Account is featured in search results and within the Who To Follow section. Who To Follow is Twitter’s account recommendation engine and identifies similar accounts and followers to help users discover new businesses, content, and people on Twitter.

Los social media según Marshall McLuhan: El mundo al compás de Twitter

Los social media según Marshall McLuhan: El mundo al compás de Twitter | Gabriel Catalano human being | #INperfeccion® a way to find new insight & perspectives | Scoop.it

Es increíble cómo pudo elucubrar McLuhan, 47 años atrás, un fenómeno de las características actuales representadas por Twitter o Facebook. Para él, la difusión intensa de las comunicaciones sociales afectaba y afectaría, en grado superlativo, a la educación común, llevándola a lo que denominó “la escuela sin paredes” o “el aula sin muros”.

How I became a convert to Twitter • The teaching and education community on Twitter is truly inspirational...

 

Twitter is a fantastic collaborative tool. As teachers, how often do we get to visit other schools? In my experience, very rarely. Twitter has enabled me to collaborate with teachers in schools across the country. Combine this with cloud services such as DropBox and Google Docs and you can create and share resources and ideas quickly and easily.

 

The site is also a great place for discussion. It is amazing how creative you can be in 140 characters. Teachers, academics, technologists and other experts come together on Twitter to chat and discuss a whole range of topics – you can follow and contribute to these discussions by using hash tags.
