Facebook Marketing Success Video with Daren Rowse, Amy Porterfied, and some other guy | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

This was 90 minutes of time well spent!

 

Darren Rowse leads two blogs that I encourage many of my students to follow.

Amy Porterfield has worked for Harley Davidson and Anthony Robbins before starting her own business and helping Social Media Examiner take off and thrive.

 

She offers both great big picture advice as well as very practical, easily achievable things to add to your to-do list this week.

Digital Divide and Social Media: Connectivity Doesn’t End the Digital Divide, Skills Do

Digital Divide and Social Media: Connectivity Doesn’t End the Digital Divide, Skills Do | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Whether we like it or not, we live in a very unequal and stratified world. We live in societies in which inequality is ignored in education, science and social media. 

 

Recently I finished a study on social inequalities from an Internet perspective (to be published next year) where I examined moving beyond digital inequalities in the context of the technological infrastructure and Internet access. Primarily, those inequalities in the networked world are: the lack of digital and media literacies; critical thinking and communication skills in order to navigate and evaluate data online; an information and knowledge gap; and collaboration and participatory inequalities.

If Brand Loyalty Is Defined By Engaging Your Niche Audience, Curation Is The Key To Finding Your Voice

If Brand Loyalty Is Defined By Engaging Your Niche Audience, Curation Is The Key To Finding Your Voice | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

The author of this article is huge fan of the Online Journalism Review and after reading one of the latest blog posts"Five more lessons for getting it right, this time around" ( http://bit.ly/vg45DU ), she thought to start a healthy debate and perspective on Niles’ assertion, “Don’t make the syndication mistake.”

 

While she agrees that licensed content should not replace original content creation, the syndication market has rapidly evolved over the past 5 years, creating a new architecture for news and media and providing huge opportunities for publishers and content buyers.

 

In this full interesting article, I excerped this part and it is the title of my curated article:

 

"Niles (the author of post on OJR) focuses on traditional publishers in the article, but licensing syndicated content is also a great opportunity for brands. For example, imagine you’re the content marketing strategist for a major fashion retailer. Your entire job is dedicated to building, articulating and spreading your brand’s view on fashion trends through your blog and content marketing efforts.

 

Creating high quality, original content takes a lot of work and time, as it rightfully should. However, imagine that you have the opportunity to license and streamline a huge range of voices and perspectives into your content marketing strategy – from bloggers such as The Sartorialist to the Fashion Toast, magazine publications like Inventory and Elle, major fashion sites like Style.com or The Cut.

 

Whether you’re a content marketing strategist, an online editor or traditional publisher, the key is meticulous curation. If done right, highly curated, syndicated content can be hugely valuable, cost efficient and sustainable long term.

 

Curating a variety of relevant, niche perspectives not only supports the evolving definition of today’s “journalist,” but also helps to build your own unique voice, better engage your audience and increase the likelihood of people staying engaged and on your site...."

A New Real-Time Curation Platform: iFlow

A New Real-Time Curation Platform: iFlow | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

iFlow.com offers everyday web users the ability to discover, create, curate, and share realtime information on any subject — in a filtered and contextual way.

 

Like next-gen RSS. 

 

iFlow allows users to follow ideas instead of individuals, in contrast to Twitter and Facebook, for example, taking the next step beyond the kind of realtime info streams we see on social networks, to apply that to rich data from any and all sources.

 

The consumer platform is built using Flow’s APIs and really functions as an example of the kind of realtime stream processing functionality developers can take advantage of when building their web and mobile apps.
