This is a great tool for controlling Twitter chats. It even records them for playback and delivers a whole load of statistics. This is a really useful tool for anyone running Twitter discusions.

Il semblerait que ce soit un outil très intéressant pour contrôler les chats et travailler en différé.

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog

5 lessons we learned experimenting SlideShare as a visual blog | Curation with Scoop.it, Pinterest, & Social Media | Scoop.it
SlideShare is a great platform for visual content and an amazing company: in just a few years, it has become the YouTube of presentations, one of the Top 150 sites in the world with an impressive 3 Billion views per month from 60 million unique visitors. Perhaps like many others, I originally thought of SlideShare as a platform to use only on specific occasions: when I had talked at a conference, when we had produced great slides worth sharing or when we had something specifically visual to communicate. I had had great experience and results but I don’t talk to conferences every day and so I sometimes felt I was missing out. And then, one night of September last year, I heard Jason Miller present at one of our #leancontent events and it became all clear: the team and I realized we could use SlideShare in a very different way - not just as a tool to recycle and share what you already created for other purposes but as a media channel that we would update on a regular basis. In a word, as a visual blog.

We decided to try it: over the next few months, we tried to publish at least every other week to SlideShare, integrating it in our content calendar alongside our blog and our Scoop.it content curations.

These are the first results after 4 months running this experiment. Continue reading →
Linda Dougherty's insight:

Visual blogging?! What a cool idea!  Instead of stressing over writing a long blog post, just put ideas with images and precise titles to deliver ideas and resources into a slide presentation.  I could still post the images/slides onto a regular blog,.

Great tips!

Hugo Callens's curator insight, April 25, 2014 3:56 AM

Content curation is het systematisch verzamelen, selecteren en commentariëren van allerlei content die je op het web vindt met betrekking tot een topic die voor jou,  je organisatie en je publiek relevant is.

Het is o.a. een manier om je positie als "expert" op een bepaald gebied te versterken, om zelf op de hoogte te blijven van de ontwikkelingen in je vakgebied en om tegelijk  je publiek "op te voeden".

In deze presentatie vind je 10 praktische tips om dat proces vorm te geven.
