Like Twitter, Google+ Now Has Trending Topics

Like Twitter, Google+ Now Has Trending Topics | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Google quietly added a trending topics section to Google+ last night which now shows up when you perform a search on the social network.


Google quietly added a trending topics section to Google+ last night which now shows up when you perform a search on the social network. The new “Trends” section appears on the right-hand side of the page, and currently lists the top 10 items under heavy discussion like “Natalie Wood” and “Breaking Dawn,” for example.


The feature was first spotted by Richard Lusk who posted a screenshot to Google+ and tweeted about the update. Because the feature only appears after you perform a search, Lusk and others are suggesting that “Trends” should appear next to the homepage’s main stream, where the feature would be more obvious.


That’s probably not a bad idea, but for now that space is used to prompt users to add more friends via “Suggestions” and “Send Invitations.” Since Google+ is still trying to grow its user base, it may not be ready to give up that key spot just yet.

What happens when journalism is everywhere?

What happens when journalism is everywhere? | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
The authorities in New York are discovering what Egypt also learned -- that it's not as easy to regulate or arrest journalists when everyone is a journalist.

By Mathew Ingram Nov. 18, 2011, 9:34am PT

***

When the Arab Spring demonstrations were under way in Egypt’s Tahrir Square and reports were streaming out through Twitter and Facebook and text messages and cellphone videos, it was easy to feel superior to the Egyptian government. How could they not realize that information can no longer be contained by blockades or even internet blackouts when everyone has the power to publish? Now the authorities in New York City and elsewhere have been getting a dose of that medicine, with the “Occupy Wall Street” protests being tweeted and live-streamed in real time. As the Associated Press learned this week to its chagrin, we all have newswires at our disposal now.

52 Percent Of Twitter Users Do Not Consider Legal Implications Of Their Tweets [STUDY] - AllTwitter | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Did you know you stand the chance of being sued for what you tweet? Don’t let this scare you away from the network altogether, but do understand that there are implications beyond simply getting retweets when you post something to Twitter.

A new study by UK-based law firm DLA Piper shows that the majority of Twitter users are blissfully unaware of the potential legal ramifications of what they tweet.

5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch

5 Reasons Content Discovery Tools Need a Human Touch | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Content discovery tools have been trending towards taking over an increasing part of the selection process by filtering out information. This is an issue for journalists needing to make unexpected discoveries in relation to a particular topic of interest. 

 

The journalist possesses a number of natural skills that cannot be replicated by tools: 

1. Users are contextual thinkers

2. Users possess relevant expertise

3. Users make sense of patterns

4. Users are adaptable

5. Users can decipher unstructured information

GO HD lets you anonymously broadcast photos and videos from your iPhone

GO HD lets you anonymously broadcast photos and videos from your iPhone | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
GO HD is a Web and iPhone app that allows you to share photos, videos and tiny anecdotes from anywhere in the world anonymously. And you can benefit from others sharing stuff similarly from all across the globe, all of which is piped to you in real time. It’s fast, always has something new, is sometimes funny, sometimes surprising and always fun.

Yes, that sounds awfully similar to Twitter and a dozen other social networking services like Instagram and Klip—which it is to a certain extent—but it does have some truly unique twists. For starters, it allows you to be entirely anonymous, so you never have to sign up for an account and reveal to anyone who you are.

How Storifying Occupy Wall Street Saved The News

How Storifying Occupy Wall Street Saved The News | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

In the dead of night on Monday, November 14, Zuccotti Park in New York City was raided by police. In the preceding days, there were crackdowns at several of the major Occupy protests around the country.

***

The effort had apparently been coordinated between cities. Monday night's actions against the original Occupy Wall Street encampment were stern, heavy enough to bring a decisive end to the protest. But the raid only served to turn up the heat in New York and around the country.

As they have since the Occupation began, people on the ground fired up their smartphones to report the events as they happened, and curators around the Web gathered and retweeted the salient messages. But early on in the raid, mainstream media outlets began reporting that the police were barring their reporters from entering the park. The NYPD even grounded a CBS News helicopter. The night had chilling implications for freedom of the press. But the news got out anyway. The raw power of citizen media - and the future of news envisioned by a site called Storify - thwarted the media blackout.

Brands Start to Test 'Hangouts' On Their Google+ Pages | Digital - Advertising Age

Brands Start to Test 'Hangouts' On Their Google+ Pages | Digital - Advertising Age | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Macy's was among the first to host a Hangout on a brand page last week with Fashionista blogger Leah Chernikoff talking to nine Google+ users. But the fact that only 10 participants are allowed per session is a severe limitation for brands who might be thinking about Hangouts as a new way to engage their audience. Some early adopters have found ways to circumvent that rule. Fox News held a Hangout with Mitt Romney on Tuesday that only three people were chosen to participate in, but also broadcasted it on TV and then published it on their website to increase the exposure.

Buffer For Facebook Allows Scheduling Of Posts

Buffer For Facebook Allows Scheduling Of Posts | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Facebook users, particularly page administrators, who believe the timing of Facebook posts is key finally have access to a tool that has been available for Twitter for nearly one year:
Buffer, which allows its Twitter users to schedule their tweets, debuted Buffer for Facebook earlier this week, saying that it had been its “top requested feature.”
In a blog post announcing the rollout of Buffer for Facebook, the company said:
In the same way as tweets, Buffer now allows you to add Facebook updates to your queue. We will then go ahead, schedule, and publish this update for you, at the right time and well spaced out over the day.
You can now post the same update to both Facebook and Twitter, or have them posted to either network only — just click on your face to toggle!
We have also reduced clutter on the dashboard to let you focus on writing great content for your followers. From there, you can also get extra space in your Buffer for free, by inviting your friends.
One of the features in the dashboard mentioned above is analytics for every post sent via Buffer. And the company added that it redesigned its browser extensions for Chrome, Safari, and Firefox to automatically include the thumbnail and preview for Facebook posts.
