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!

Free Technology for Teachers: A YouTube-free Video Search Engine | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Did you know that you can create a new custom made search engine withing Google?

Ken Morrison's insight:

You can also embed it!  This is great if you want to limit the sites that students will find when searching. Of course you should only do this with full disclosure. However, it might be a good way to put some 'rails' on the search train within some topic. It is worth considering.  The creator of this blog used it to help teachers find videos that were not on YouTube.  For those who hate Wikipedia, you could customize a search that avoids sending students to that site.  So many options.  Enjoy.

 

Speaking of options:  Here are 47 other search engines for finding educational videos:

Google Translate has just announced that it is now possible to order professional translations of any video transcription directly from within your YouTube account.


Not only.


You can also get an immediate time delivery estimate and a precise cost for the translation task and you can pay immediately for it via credit card/PayPal.


From the official Google Translate blog: "Now you can connect directly with translation vendors and pay to get your captions translated quickly and professionally.  

When you request a translation for your captions in YouTube, we’ll display a list of vendors along with their estimated pricing and delivery date so you can easily compare. We’ve initially collaborated with two companies, Gengo and Translated.net, to make their services available to you and to streamline the ordering process."

Visual Storytelling for Marketers |

Visual Storytelling for Marketers | | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=3JBQpTxXisg

 

 

 

Humans have been telling stories with pictures since the days of cave paintings, so we should be pretty good at it by now.

 

All right, want to increase your business? Then translate your business stories into videos.

 

I know I know, who's got the time and which is the best tool to use? Most of the stories I share with my clients happens in the board room. When I think of taking some of my business stories and creating a video or two to share on my website, I get just completely overwhelmed.

 

But this infographic drives home the necessity of creating these videos so that your stories can do your marketing for you. For example, for those of you who have products 85% of customers are likely to purchase a product after watching a video on your website about it. Wow!

 

For service businesses, 65% of the C-suite or top senior executives of the company will continue to research you after viewing one of your videos. Wow again!

 

There are quite a number of articles in this curated collection about tools and strategies for creating effective digital stories. So dig in, learn lots, and work creating these videos into your schedule. And I'll work hard on trying to take my own advice!

 

In the meantime, check out the rest of the infographic and see what other gems you can find.

Michael Wesch and the Future of Education

Michael Wesch and the Future of Education | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Dubbed “the explainer” by popular geek publication Wired because of his viral YouTube video that summarizes Web 2.0 in under five minutes, cultural anthropologist Michael Wesch brought his Web 2.0 wisdom to the University of Manitoba on June 17 (see video above).

During his presentation, the Kansas State University professor breaks down his attempts to integrate Facebook, Netvibes, Diigo, Google Apps, Jott, Twitter, and other emerging technologies to create an education portal of the future.

“It’s basically an ongoing experiment to create a portal for me and my students to work online,” he explains. “We tried every social media application you can think of. Some worked, some didn’t.”

Curating is more than clicking a share button (1 hour video by Steve Rosenbaum)

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Thank you to Giuseppe Mauriello for this quality review of Steve Rosenbaum's Video

 

I like how Rosenbaum says that data is like a forest fire.  It isn't going away.  It is a new reality that will keep spreading and spreading.  It is hard to see through the smoke.

 

Also....If you would start to watch every Youtube video starting now....it will take 8 years (without sleep)!

 

Society sends 294 Billion Emails a day

Ken 

 

This presentation will explore how to plan a video curation strategy, how to determine what sources are appropriate for your visitors, and how you invite and curate user-generated and user-submitted content.

 

From article on Streamingmedia.com:

"Curation can solve the problem of abundance online, Steven Rosenbaum explained at the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City. While creative professionals occasionally disagree with curation, it's a way for site owners to present strong material to site visitors and cut through the clutter.

"Content curators are distributors of collections," explained Rosenbaum.

...

That's the abundance problem. If you went ahead and made all the curators in the world go away, you'd still have this signal-to-noise problem that we laid out at the beginning of the talk. So, absolutely no way is curation the thing that is the enemy of creation."

 

A well-planned content curation strategy doesn't simply present a list of videos to site visitors. It presents a collection with personality. When curating materials to present, think about the persona that makes that collection unique..."
