Here's how Ian suggests using Paper.li

The World's Shortest How-To List for Leaders

The World's Shortest How-To List for Leaders | Community Manager's Tool Kit | Scoop.it

This is a great article by Spencer Critchley with very practical advice. Spencer says "If you want to be a leader, turn towards fear, for the greater good." Very inspiring!

 

"After working for a lot of leaders, good and bad, and taking leadership roles myself, I'm convinced that this is the one thing that makes the difference: You must be willing to turn towards fear, for the greater good. In other words, to take the risk of sacrificing yourself. That's the paradox of power: you gain power from the people you serve. You do that by showing that you're willing to risk your own failure for their success.

 

Here's Spencer's short list ( shortened). The post is well worth a read!

 

1.Hire the person, not the qualifications.

2.Make the work the reward.

3.Place power in the mission, not the person.

4.Focus, don't do a bunch of things you're mediocre at

5.Communicate (all the time, more than you think you have to)

6. Have great processes, not just great ideas.

Getting Started with TweetChats!

Getting Started with TweetChats! | Community Manager's Tool Kit | Scoop.it

A few months back I was invited to join a TweetChat hosted by TechSoup. The chat was on curation for non-profits.

 

Because I am active in the area and passionate about the subject, I accepted without hesitation. Unfortunately, it was my first chat and I was utterly unprepared. The experience left me looking, and feeling, like a fool. In fact, I think Jan Gordon was present and watched as I was bulldozed by tweets and questions. It was a complete failure and there was a lesson to be learned!

 

I would never attend a physical event without researching the venue, the organizer and participants before hand - why was I thinking a TweetChat would be any different?

 

After the experience I took some time to research best practices and came up with a list of of my own. 6 months later, I am getting the most out of TweetChats: enjoying meeting new people, learning, discussing and exchanging. 


If you haven't attended a TweetChat yet, I encourage you to do so and if it is your first, perhaps this post will help out.

 

You truly get out of them what you put into them, so go chat, and have fun.

Tweets do affect Rankings [Study]

Tweets do affect Rankings [Study] | Community Manager's Tool Kit | Scoop.it

From the original article: "In the biggest study of its kind, we have found that there is strong correlation between the amount of tweets about a URL, and its Google ranking.

 

Key Stats

1) Study shows that URLs receive a significant boost in Google rankings when they are shared on Twitter

 

2) The effects of this boost seem to level out at around 50 tweets, and the subsequent benefit of gaining additional tweets is minimal until around 5,000 tweets

 

3) After 5,000 tweets the average ranking of URLs improves considerably
URLs receiving over 7,500 tweets almost always rank inside the top 5 results

 

4) Average rankings are heavily correlated to the number of tweets about each URL".

"We are in the midst of a big shake out in how organizations use social technologies. As we develop a common understanding of the opportunities and risks, better decisions are being made about when and how to use the technology available. We are no longer having exciting breakthroughs every day, so the changes in the market have become more subtle, but no less profound. There are three big challenges I see as we move forward:"
