This infographic answers that:

"While the laws about distributing images through social media channels likes Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and blog are still fuzzy, it is generally considered acceptable to redistribute an image that was originally intended to be publicly viewed by the creator. This is why you will typically find original images re-posted on blogs, news sites, and social networking sites even if the person re-distributing the images didn't obtain permission to do so....

How to Effectively Measure Your Social Media Marketing Efforts

How to Effectively Measure Your Social Media Marketing Efforts | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Measuring social isn’t about the total number of eyeballs that see your content. It’s about the actions that people take. Use this calculation for any channel, from YouTube to the blog, to see how that channel fares in conversion rates.


If you're going to invest time in social media marketing, you need to measure performance, but it can be difficult to identify relevant metrics.There's no one-size-fits-all method of measuring social media success, because goals vary from company to company. But you can certainly find ways to measure all the work you're doing on social.


This infographic from exacttarget.com looks at how to align your social media objectives, how to measure reach and share of conversation, and most importantly, how to track your leads....

If you're going to invest time in social media marketing, you need to measure performance.  However, it can be difficult to identify relevant metrics in your particular field of practice. There's no one-size-fits-all method of measuring social media success, because goals var from company to company. But you can certainly find ways to measure all the work you're doing on social media.


In the article above, Digital Information has provided an infographic about how to measure your social media goals and how to track your leads. An effective social media measurement strategy demands relevant information and the flexibility to adjust your tactics online. Social media marketing demands a lot of time and commitment.

MH17: how Storyful’s ‘social sleuthing’ helped verify evidence

MH17: how Storyful’s ‘social sleuthing’ helped verify evidence | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Ben Cardew: Stories such as the shooting down of the Malaysia Airlines plane show the importance of checking Twitter and YouTube content.


In the aftermath of an event as tragically uncertain as the MH17 plane disaster, amid claim and counterclaim about who was responsible, it becomes ever more important for news organisations to verify the validity of material on social media.


This is where social news agency Storyful and its Open Newsroom  come into their own. The Dublin-based company – acquired by News Corp for €18m in December 2013 – specialises in finding and verifying news content on social media. Open Newsroom, which Storyful launched on Google+  in June 2013, is “a real-time community of news professionals” whose objective is to “debunk, fact-check, clarify, credit and source” information around big news stories....
