Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot

Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

...To think of what “might be” a few years from now is barely fathomable but really exciting! I remember listening to the keynote speaker at the 1990 Seybold Conference talk about how books in the future would be enjoyed on electronic readers, and thinking, “not in my lifetime would electronic readers replace printed books.” We all know how that turned out.


Let’s go back and hit the high points from the past ten years. Below is a visual infographic timeline followed by a more detailed look at each year! Pay close attention to the ones that were launched in 2012; some of them have a lot of potential to be game changers!

Social Calls-to-Action Work | Dan Zarrella [Infographic]

Social Calls-to-Action Work | Dan Zarrella [Infographic] | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

How important is a 'call to action' in social media?

Ken Morrison's insight:

If you want action on social media, this recent data suggests that you should simply ask for it. This study does not mention if 'calls to action' lose potency if they are repeated too often.  My assumption is that Zarrella is already working on that data.  I strongly suggest following Dan Zarella if you are interested in the science of social media marketing.

An Eye On New Media 2013

Here is the 2013 version of my textbook that I curated for my students at Hannam University's Linton Global College.  Next year's vesion will include more of the teacher's notes that I share with my students.  I hope that it is helpful for you.  If you would like a free PDF version of the book, send me an email at kenmorrison30 (at) yahoo (dot) com or download it at the slideshare site.

 

I put a lot of work into the 2012 version.  I feel that it passed the test of time. There are some updates and additions in this version.  I also decreased the size of many images to make it less expensive to print.

 

Please please please support the real authors of this content.   I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

  

Would you like to see the output of this class?  Here is a collection of the Scoop.it curation sites which my students created to help them prepare for their future goals or research topics:

켄모리슨 교수님이 자신이 제작한 2013년 교재 "An Eye On New Media" 를 공유했다. 소셜미디어와 구글 아마존등 온라인 거물들의 역사와 지도자들을 간단하게 담아냈으며, 어떻게 하면 개인이나 집단이 이런 소셜미디어의 세계에서 성공할 수 있는지에 대한 많은 기사와 정보들을 모아놨다.

Mike Ellsworth's curator insight, March 12, 2013 10:42 AM

Not only can third parties tell a lot about your personality, sexuality, and politics by examinging Facebook Likes (see Researchers predict IQ, age, and more using only Facebook Likes http://sco.lt/522wPh), mapping your Twitter interactions can tell a lot about your social interactions as well.

 

When localized to the employees of a corporation, as a researcher did with Twitter, you can learn a tremendous amount of information about how the company works and what it's working on.

 

As former Sun CEO Scott McNealy once said, "You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it."

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists

HOW TO: Use Twitter Lists | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Twitter now has a newer list upgrade.  It is the answer to Facebook Groups.  They have always had lists, but we can now have people in lists who we DO NOT subscribe to.  We can also remove ourselves from other people's lists if we do not want to be on them.  It should be interesting:

You will get many great nuggets of info in this article focusing on the continuing growth of social media and industries affected by it.

Twitter is currently gaining more active users at a faster pace than Facebook.

The author's key takeaway: Get over your social media anxiety and get on the social ladder before you get left behind. The view from the ground is not nearly as thrilling as the view from the top.

 

 

We’re living in an age of connectedness like most of us would not have imagined even five years ago. We have amazing social networks available to every human and company on the planet. Brands can reach out and talk to consumers like never before.

My play-by-play of the Nebraska native and Blogger, Twitter and Medium leader:

Evan Williams thinks the name "Big Omaha" is a little redundant.

That's because Omaha is synonymous with big, from his childhood point of view, he said.

Clarks, his hometown was only 379 when he lived there in the 70s and 80s. Clarks is 100 miles west of Omaha and "one of the towns every ten miles on Highway 30."

Interesting article about the best time to post in Facebook and Twitter based on the amount of traffic it gets. It really is important to know that those times will be better to post for more attention and likes but as my professor said, you have to remind yourself that you will compete the most during the peak time.

The head of human resources at sales force has a score of 54.  Some people require of score of 35 to be hired.  

Is there a relation between Klout score and being a good worker?  I'm all ears.

Managing a Klout score can be distracting.  Especially when Twitter should be used primarily as a listing and learning tool (not a talking tool), I think that Klout can pollute the Twitter experience.
