Pinterest Surpasses Twitter & Facebook In One Area [Infographic]

Pinterest Surpasses Twitter & Facebook In One Area [Infographic] | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
We’ve all seen so many infographics about Pinterest lately that’s it’s easy to read the title and think, “Yeah, I get it, Pinterest is kicking ass,” but I found this particular one to be very interesting from a social media psychology perspective.

 

If you are on Pinterest, you know how much fun it can be. It is more relaxing than some of the other social networking sites because there is no pressure to engage, be active or leave any comments. It’s pretty much just an “anything goes” kind of environment, which I like. If you are on there often, you’ve probably seen that some pins have price tags in the upper left-hand corner which indicate that the product being pinned is for sale.

How to Spread Your Content Across Social Networks More Effectively

How to Spread Your Content Across Social Networks More Effectively | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

Michael Lazerow, founder and CEO of Buddy Media, begins his talk with a promise that letting your brand’s content run free on social networks will increase site traffic and revenues by 12.89%. If that statistic grabbed your attention, Lazerow is prepared to explain how.

 

However, “If you don’t want to grow it by 12.89%, do not do this stuff that I’m about to tell you,” he warns.

Lazerow says that simply being on Facebook won’t maximize a brand’s revenue and traffic. Businesses must take what works on Facebook and apply it to their own sites and the wider web in general. Take a look at the video to discover Lazerow’s recipe for breaking down the content barriers of social networks.

Announcing A Twitter-like Network For Sharing Long Reads

Announcing A Twitter-like Network For Sharing Long Reads | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

Steve Johnson, author of  Where Good Ideas Come From  announces findings.com - A social network that may actually make you smarter!

 

I just signed up and it's great for curating, blogging and meeting some very interesting people.

 

****This is a social network that literally lets you actively read over other bookworms' shoulders and watch their thought processes coalesce in real time.

 

Intro:

 

A geeky literati, allowing you to share clippings from longer pieces with your social network without all the noise of Twitter.

 

It's like Twitter, but populated solely with unabridged snippets of interesting books, articles, and essays.

 

Here's what you need to know:

 

**users can post full-length quotations from whatever literary source they like (provided it's electronic).

 

There's a bookmarklet you install in your browser, so that anytime you see a bit of text you want to clip you can share with your social-network-turned-library.
