Tim Bonner's curator insight, January 16, 2014 5:21 AM

Do you struggle to achieve your goals? Promise or Pay is a great way to get yourself motivated.

 

It links your promise to charitable donation as well as sharing your promise on social media to give you that extra motivation.

 

If you achieve your goal then great and if you don't it's great for the charity of your choice. Win-win for everyone!

What Social Media Is Most Important To You?

What Social Media Is Most Important To You? | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

Most Important Social Media
Friend asked a great question but in the wrong way. Social Media isn't important to me in and of itself, but each social media channel can help communicate marketing messages and thus become valuable and important.

Key is "matching the hatch" to borrow a fly fishing term.

Matching the hatch puts the right kind of content, what Gary Vaynerchuk calls "native content', on each social net when THAT information is important to communicating a marketing message. Here is how I answered:

Depends on what I'm trying to accomplish.

If I want comments and discussion GPlus.
If I want feedback from friends Facebook.
If I want to generally test Scoop.it.
If I want a "set it and forget it" content solution Paper.li.
If I have something happening now or want to newsjack Twitter.
To raise money on creative or gaming projects Kickstarter.
If I want to share videos YouTube.

If I want to serialize stories Storify.
If I want to test an infographic Pinterest. 
If I want to do something with audio then SmartCloud.
If I want to create sustainable and potentially "evergreen" content then I use WP blogs. Content becomes "evergreen" based on how it performs (views, shares, conversions).
If I want to sell something ecom then Shopify. 

Match the hatch to get the most from your content, your growing social media tribe, your time and content marketing and curation efforts.

garassini's curator insight, March 3, 2014 6:01 AM

L'opinione di Marc Andreessen sul futuro del giornalismo online. Secondo l'inventore del primo browser grafico della storia, Mosaic, il fatto che molti pezzi grossi della Rete abbiamo investito nell'editoria (Jeff Bezos di Amazon, Marissa Mayer di Yahoo, Pierre Omidyar di eBay, fra gli altri) è il segno che le news sono tutt'latro che marginali nel nuovo ecosistema della rete. E questo avrà ricadute anche dal punto di vista economico. C'è da ben sperare.

If you've only considered traditional media, this article will come as a shock. But from another perspective, the interest graph, niche curation, the explosion of mobile and several other factors are boosting the opportunity for content.

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC]

How to Disappear from the Internet [INFOGRAPHIC] | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

The amount of information available online has gotten out of hand. Everything about our lives, from where where we went to high school and what we ate for breakfast this morning, can be found on the internet. If you think that's bad, think about children growing up today – their entire lives, from infancy through middle school, are being documented by their parents on Facebook!

Privacy just doesn't exist online anymore; it can take drastic measures to delete ourselves from the internet, but here's a step-by-step guide for those who want to do so...

My Comment:

This is the best and most informative video I've seen coming directly from YouTube. Please do more of these! I'd like to know more about choosing the right category for my videos and how much of a role does the category play in YouTube search.

For example I do mostly blogging and social media tutorials. Should I use "Education" "Science & Technology" or "HowTo & Style" I don't think any of those categories is appropriate but I'm not sure how to test for the best results in search.
