Twitter Pandemonium: The Steve Blake Incident | Social Media Today | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

Steve Blake is an inconsistent shooter that has made me doubtful about the Los Angeles Lakers. Surely, the experience and championship-caliber weight of Kobe Bryant could help the team survive another second round sweep (last year, it was Dallas) against a speedy, more athletic Oklahoma City Thunder.

How to Use Social Networking Sites to Drive Business

How to Use Social Networking Sites to Drive Business | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it
Advice for small businesses on using social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn, and how to integrate these tools into the marketing and recruiting efforts of your company.

 

Consider this: It wasn't until 1997 that the Internet reached 50 million users in the United States. Facebook gained over 100 million users in the U.S. from January 2009 to January 2010, marking a 145 percent growth rate within one year, according to research by digital marketing agency iStrategy Labs. If you're a business owner that hasn't embraced social media networking as a major component of your success strategy, it's due time to hop onboard.

'When you've got 300 million people on Facebook, that's a huge business watering hole,' says Lon Safko, social media expert and co-author of The Social Media Bible: Tactics, Tools, and Strategies for Business Success, of the site's global reach. 'The profile is like an index to your company.'

While Facebook has become the most popular social media site, there are plenty of others for your company to explore. LinkedIn, for example, houses 55 million professionals seeking jobs, employees, or basic business or networking opportunities. MySpace, which allows users to tinker with music, themes, and HTML code, is targeted toward youth and teens. All of these sites have one primary thing in common: the profile.

Patients Like Me: A Pioneer in Social Networks For Good | Social Media Pearls

Patients Like Me: A Pioneer in Social Networks For Good | Social Media Pearls | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

I booked-marked this video clip for sometime.

Not only do I think it is inspiring but it certainly broke ground on building a virtual community when the concept was somewhat embryonic.

Patients Like Me is both a great support to patients seeking a life-line when few can be found, but it also (at its core) demonstrates the true purpose of social media communities. To have conversations that encourage, support and share with others seeking similar engagement and where geographical scope is no longer a hindrance- in fact quite the opposite. Let me know what you think.

Google’s Social Offering is Not Google Plus. Social Integration is The Game. | Social Media Pearls

Google’s Social Offering is Not Google Plus. Social Integration is The Game. | Social Media Pearls | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

Well I know that title has some people going!

I have stopped counting how many times I have been in discussions with people who have said they don’t like Google Plus as a social network or believe it is just a fad. What is eye-opening is that when I ask them, “Have you actually used it?” The answer has been “ Well I went on and came off after a day or two ”. How can you possibly make an objective evaluation without really testing the environment?

It seems to me that social media enthusiasts either sit in the Google Plus camp or the Facebook camp. There is this great divide. I am thinking – why do I have to choose? I am pretty clear how I interact with my Facebook network and although I am still figuring out the optimal use of Google Plus, the two sites provide different experiences. Furthermore, I think Google Plus is just one component of Google’s plan on the social arena.

I walked into an electronics store the other day and happened to pass the television department.

The 70 inch televisions with high definition flat screens were displaying videos so compelling that for a minute or two I just stood there watching images so sharp and mesmerizing that I just stopped and watched.
The vibrant colors and high contrast were almost hypnotic.
It was only ten years ago and a flat screen TV half that size was $20,000.
Now everyone has at least a 42 inch plasma or LCD screen and that is in the smallest room in the house!

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?

With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming. Consequently, the role of the social media curator has become increasingly more attractive. Social media curation is when you filter, select, review and reposition quality content on the web for a specific audience and/or topic.
