New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow | "Social Media" | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Hopflow is web and iOS social content discovery app which seeks to connect users with a stream of content based on their personal interests. It is similar to other services like Prismatic and Trapit.

 

From reviewed article by The Next Web:

"Hopflow lets users Discover and share content through following specific topics rather than individual sources, and based on these interests, a personalized flow of stories from around the Web is reeled in.

 

You’ll need to sign up with your Twitter or Facebook credentials.

Hopflow scanned my Twitter history and, quite accurately, told me all the subjects I am indeed interested in.

 

You can, of course, manually select and deselect options as you see fit, and once you click ‘Done’, you’ll have a long stream of news stories based around your topics of interest. It’s like Twitter, except you follow topics rather than accounts, and this comparison is given further credence with the ‘Rehop’ feature which lets you share your news with others.

 

“The social Web is full of content platforms that force people to manually follow and filter through sources and information,” says Erez Pilosof, CEO and Founder of Hopflow. ” In this contextual age, people want tools that are simple and provide targeted information. We believe that discovering and sharing stories about the things that interest you shouldn’t be tedious and time consuming but rather fun and easy. Hopflow eliminates unwanted noise and allows users to sit back and enjoy a beautiful image-based ‘flow’ of relevant content outside of their current social networks.”

Twitter as Brand Marketing Tool | Social Media Today

Twitter as Brand Marketing Tool | Social Media Today | "Social Media" | Scoop.it

Is Twitter an effective marketing tool for brands? What sorts of challenges are businesses facing on Twitter? According to a recent survey conducted by SMMU, 40 percent of brands consider Twitter to be an effective marketing tool. Brands face a number of challenges (like building an audience, developing strong content, etc.) using Twitter as a social media marketing tool, with measuring Return-on-Investment being the greatest challenge.

 In addition, most brands have not used Twitter's paid services. In fact, some brands were unaware that they were available. Among Twitter features being used on a regular basis, Vine remains underutilized, despite the rise in popularity of video marketing. Check out this infographic for all the findings from the survey....

Abbey 's curator insight, April 7, 1:45 PM

These are quite interesting statistics! I am one of those 52% wanting special offers/promotions and also the 33% that are hoping for freebies! I tend to only like a brand on Facebook or Twitter if I initially see advertising for a competition /discount. Lots of brands make statuses saying something along the lines of "like this status for the opportunity to win......" So if I see something like that I will automatically like it and then generally forget about the brand until something promoting the brand pops up on my news feed, where I will more often than not unlike the page! The fact that only 33% of a branders "Likers" are current customers is really interesting, to me that shows that the facebook page is creating brand awareness for the other 62% that are not initial customers. So all though majority of that 62% just wants something free our a special offer, they are still learning and become more aware of the brand which is a huge positive.

What Do CMOs Want? On Big Data, Better Focus And Moments Of Truth

What Do CMOs Want? On Big Data, Better Focus And Moments Of Truth | "Social Media" | Scoop.it

In my previous post, I wrote about the Poogle, the new breed of marketer, combining P&G’s and Google marketing skills. It’s easy to pinpoint the moment the Poogle was born. It was 2 years ago, when Google published “Wining the Zero Moment of Truth (ZMOT),” its take on how buyers make purchasing decisions today.P&G’s “First Moment of Truth” (FMOT) defined the crucial moment when the consumer chooses one brand over the other, a focal point for traditional marketing (in addition to the second moment of truth, the consumer’s experience with the product).

 

Today, however, online conversations, social network-based recommendations, the immediacy of the mobile experience, the digital archiving of the word of mouth, all contribute to a new buying behavior. Google argued that as consumers are bombarded with information about products from these and other new sources (most not directly controlled by the marketer), marketing must pay attention to ZMOT, a new critical moment that happens much before FMOT. First impressions count and could happen when they are not at all related to a specific buying decision....

Chris Perkowski's curator insight, February 18, 2:27 PM


Facebook rose to dominance in 2008, and remains the top social network five years later. That’s an unprecedented run, and despite constant criticisms about design changes and new features, it doesn't look like the social network will be dethroned any time soon.


But that doesn’t mean we’ve reached the end of history for social networks. Several new ones have launched, such as Pinterest and Vine, and others have re-invented themselves. While Facebook is king, there’s still room for niche alternatives, particularly those that emphasis images or video rather than an infinitely updating news feed.


Sometimes I feel as if there are too many social media platforms. There is now a website or an app for virtually anything you can think of. More social media platforms will still be developed in the future, however I feel that soon people will run out of innovative ideas to capture an audience that is already tied up in multiple platforms.
