Get More Twitter Followers @chrisbrogan

Get More Twitter Followers @chrisbrogan | Online-Communities | Scoop.it

Do you want more Twitter followers? People seem to believe they do.

More followers doesn’t directly equate to more attention. Yes, there are some numerical advantages, but those seem to be tapering off. Keeping people feeling like they’re seen and heard seems to be the better strategy.

Activity Dips and Spirals - @RichMillington

Activity Dips and Spirals - @RichMillington | Online-Communities | Scoop.it
Activity drops during holidays. In most communities, it drops at weekends too. Yet the weekend isn’t a problem. It’s a habit that members will visit the community again on Monday. Holidays can be a little more dangerous.

An activity dip can become a downward spiral.

When activity dips members have less reason to come back. If less members come back, there is less activity. You can see where this is going.

The solution?

Plan something incredibly exciting to kick-start the community in the new year. Make sure it’s interactive. How about a community-wide quiz? Or letting members make metric-based predictions for the new year. Next year, you can see who came closest?

The State of the Blogosphere 2011 - @briansolis

The State of the Blogosphere 2011 - @briansolis | Online-Communities | Scoop.it

When you think about social media, what do you envision? Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Foursquare? If you’re like me, blogs would have made the top of the list. But how can blogs survive in a time when the attention of connected consumers is not only precious, it’s elusive. After all, people can read no more than 140 characters at a time right? With the surplus of networks and a river of social activity that washes away personal information levees, how can we be anything but distracted?

Is It Time To Abolish the Twitter Retweet Button? | @PushingSocial

Is It Time To Abolish the Twitter Retweet Button? | @PushingSocial | Online-Communities | Scoop.it
What if Twitter decided to kill the ubiquitous retweet button?

Would it be Twittergeddon?

Would the social web grind to a halt?

As a ardent and habitual retweeter I cringe at the thought of losing my beloved RT.

Deep down, however, I wonder if a no retweet diet would make for better blogging and content curation.

Curation is more than clicking a button.

How to Attract Website Visitors – Be Interesting…!  @grahamjones | Online-Communities | Scoop.it
Websites need to be interesting in order to attract visitors.

Strange as it may seem, most people have no real plan or intention when they visit websites. According to a recent study, the number one reason for visiting websites is simply to pass the time. Most people, it seems, go online for no particular reason at all.

Everyone has a self-concept. We want to join communities which fit that self-concept.
