Seek, sense, share - to a great extent why I love scoop.it!!

Denyse Drummond-Dunn's curator insight, September 7, 2013 3:06 AM

This is almost thinking done for you, or at least immensely simplified.

A really useful summary of why sharing is the only future we have and how to make it even more rewarding.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, September 7, 2013 7:58 AM

This is what the "Social Web" is all about - boundless opportunities to learn new things and find/engage with interesting people. However, PKM requires a couple of hidden ingredients: enthusiasm (to learn) and energy (to maintain momentum). #pkm

How To Use Color In Your Social Media Strategy [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter

How To Use Color In Your Social Media Strategy [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | Miscellaneous Topics | Scoop.it

The majority of people learn from and interpret a message more easily and at a greater speed from an image than they do a text-only missive, and studies have shown that nine in 10 of us make decisions on purchases based on visuals.

And it’s not just pictures – colours are also important. Naturally, all of this is significant when planning your social media strategy.

We know, for example, that images on Facebook and Twitter get a much better response than plain text, but did you know that ads that are in colour get read up to 42 percent more frequently than those in black and white?

What if I told you that the world’s favourite colour is blue, and that’s a huge reason why social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook chose it as their colour? But the correct use of colour can vary from network to network and industry to industry, and this infographic from Social Media Writing takes a closer look at how to use colours in your social media strategy.

How To Moderate Social Media

How To Moderate Social Media | Miscellaneous Topics | Scoop.it
When you throw a dinner party, you dream of excellent company, good food, and constant conversation. Social media managers strive for the same thing.

The World Editor’s Forum recently published a guide and study on the area of comment moderation. This guide concludes with six pointers for publishers to “promote respectful dialogue and conversation rather than uncivil rants and insults, and allow intelligent, thoughtful input to shine”. So what exactly are these pointers?

More details at the link.

Elegante forma de explicar lo que debe buscar un Social Media Manager. Y un modo de recordarlo en cualquier circunstancia. 

Nine0Media's curator insight, February 26, 1:03 PM

Great tips here! #SocialMediaTools #DIYSEO #Nine0Media

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 29, 5:37 AM

If conversations are the new social currency we've got some tools, guidelines and social mores to create. Online conversations are a tad on the wild west side yet, but trolls and spam can't support themselves for long.

The cost any network built on conversations incurs to rid itself of spam and trolls could kill the golden goose. Community and social "policing" and hoping the good guys math is always just a little faster is the hope conversation based "dinner parties" depend on as roughly described in this "how to moderate" social media post shares.

By moderating we see what we already knew - mobile is different. Mobile requires maps, games and PICTURES.
