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!

Online Learning Made Social with Google+

Google+ in the classroom.  How Google wants your classroom to look.

Ken Morrison's insight:

Google set the tone for the next 12 months at their I/O conference this week.  It was not a surprise that they talked about Google+'s impact on social media. It was a bit of a surprise that they discussed educational opportunities for using Google+ in the classroom.

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I have been dragging my feet with Google+. I have always seen value, but I was curious if my friends would join.  My primary takeaway is a reminder of the value of not needing to be 'friends' to have one-way exchange of information.

Hesitant about jumping in to the Google+ social network?
As this post points out Google+ is like Facebook, and it’s similar to Twitter but, One unique feature really makes Google+ stand out is its Hangouts.
Google+ Hangouts are group video chats that can include up to 10 people.
There are many ways that learning providers could make use of Google+ Hangouts So, how do you get started?
The post provides a quick guide to get potential users going.

"The database of affinity is Facebook's birthright," Forrester Analyst Nate Elliott says. "And it's going to blow it.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway
Many Facebook users Like then Leave a brand. This skews advertising to people who already like the product. That may be helpful in some ways.  But because Google +1 system is built around current and future search needs and desires, Forrester feels that Facebook will lose the war for 'likes'.

Thank you for sharing, professor Morrison. I will rescoop it^^

페이스북이나 트위터에서 좀 더 많은 관심과 좋아요를 받을 수 있는 시간대를 정보그래픽으로 간단하게 설명해 놓았다. 정말 중요한 정보나 광고를 올릴때 효과적으로 쓰일 수 있겠다.

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.

Is Google+ a Ghost Town? 5 Reasons That Will Change Your Mind

Is Google+ a Ghost Town? 5 Reasons That Will Change Your Mind | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Google+ is getting flack for low average time on site numbers, but what do these truly symbolize? And do they really matter?

 

So with Google+’s new redesign and several articles that have appeared highlighting how Google+ is “dying,” maybe we should reflect on what Google+ is doing right, with perhaps the pundits looking at it through the wrong lens?

 

What if Google+ never needed to be Facebook, but rather exist as something more?

 

So you’re on Google+, and you think it’s a ghost town because your friends aren’t on it?

 

Well, what if I told you none of that mattered?

 

What if I told you, you could see what you really wanted to see; interact with what/who you really wanted to interact with; and group those interests and engagements into categories and subjects?

 

Well here’s five reasons how Google+ can make you forget that your friends aren’t here, while still being amazingly useful, interesting and engaging. It’s more than a social network.

64 Google+ Content Strategies | Copyblogger

64 Google+ Content Strategies | Copyblogger | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Google+ isn’t only a social network. It’s the very backbone (and future) of Google itself. As Brian Clark wrote yesterday, authorship and the possible effects on the Google algorithm have the potential to be extremely beneficial to savvy content creators. If you’re a writer, this is either going to be very good for your career, or you’ll risk becoming relatively invisible online.

 

If you’d like to land solidly in the former camp of writers, the question becomes one of how to use Google+ to further your own goals. With that in mind, I’ve put together an infographic for you that outlines 64 strategies that every writer and content producer can put into action, and start reaping the rewards of intelligently engaging with Google+....

You're welcome Ken. It was an eye opener and great G+ tips. Glad it was helpful.
Two Pens's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:08 AM

Infographic is a mess but the article info on G+ is excellent with lots of helpful tips. My fave: use recorded Hangouts to interview people in your field. They will be stored on YouTube and can function as informative posts.

Steve Schildwachter's curator insight, May 13, 2013 10:12 AM

I'm going to pay attention to this one, if only because Google seems to be corralling even my Blogger site into Google+.  This is also why iGoogle is going away, I'm sure of it.

Human Media: The Newest Frontier

Human Media: The Newest Frontier | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

First, there was the internet. Then, social media came along. Now, the newest untamed frontier is ‘human media.’ That is to say, human media is a closer, more personal form of social media, but where people communicate face to face, as opposed to communicating through text. And more and more people and businesses are starting to realize just how big human media is and is going to be. What Is Human Media? Human media connects people more intimately than regular social media sites. Through platforms like Google+, and using tools like G+ Hangouts, people and businesses are able to defy geographic distances to talk face to face. The entire world is at your disposal, as you can join or watch Hangouts in an infinite number of topics. You can join or watch Hangouts that are cooking lessons, virtual knitting circles, financial advice, DIY projects, medical care, and so much more. If you can think of it, a G+ Hangout can be done on it....

Report: 46% Of Social Login Users Still Choose Facebook, But Google Is Quickly Gaining Ground | TechCrunch

Report: 46% Of Social Login Users Still Choose Facebook, But Google Is Quickly Gaining Ground | TechCrunch | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
TechCrunch is a leading technology media property, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups, reviewing new Internet products, and breaking tech news.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Ken's Key Takeaway:

Facebook lost 3% in social logins this past quarter.  Google earned 3%.  This is the second quarter in a row with similar trends.  Social logins are the third-party logins where you have the option of signing in locally or with your social network name/password.

Currently, the rank is Facebook (46%), Google+ (34%) Yahoo (7%) and Twitter (6%), LInkedIN and everyone else 7%)

 

This is big because every login gives these giants even more data about us.

Facebook's social search is coming

Facebook's social search is coming | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

This is an interesting article about why a Facebook search would be a significant threat to Google. I'm not expecting a major upheaval, but I do think this will force Google to adapt.  It should be interesting.  

Ken

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the social network is already handling a billion search queries per day, and that it is interested in launching a social search engine powered by the activity of its users — something that could turn out to be Google’s worst nightmare.

 

 

“Search engines are really evolving towards giving you a set of answers… like, I have a specific question, answer this question for me. And when you think about it from that perspective, Facebook is pretty uniquely positioned to answer a lot of the questions that people have. That’s one obvious thing that would be interesting for us to do in the future.”
