Jennifer Delorme's curator insight, March 6, 2013 1:37 PM

In tracking eyes, it proves certain thing really matter. Again the F pattern applies in where people look. The top left if the highest point people notice and lessoning on the way down. Visuals definitly matter. People notice them and eyes are drawn to them. However ads dont work, people ignore them. As well as trying to be very different to stand out may back-fire. You may not get the attention you desire because people like expected.

Use the Magazine Approach for Your Platform

Use the Magazine Approach for Your Platform | Community Management Around the Web | Scoop.it

“Sorry I Haven’t Written Lately” has never been printed in a magazine, and yet bloggers write it all the time. They fall in and out of love with their online properties (it’s happened to me).

A Community Management Perspective on the Violentacrez/Reddit Troll Story

A Community Management Perspective on the Violentacrez/Reddit Troll Story | Community Management Around the Web | Scoop.it

The more that I read Adrian Chen’s story about Violentacrez, who the writer labeled “the biggest troll on the web,” the more angry I became.

Not anger in the sense of uncontrolled emotion, but anger as someone who has managed online communities for a long time and helped, in whatever small way, to establish this field as a profession. Most of that anger was not directed at the troll, but at Reddit. If you prefer, you can substitute disappointment for anger – they both work.
