Your LinkedIn Intervention: 5 Changes You Must Make - Forbes | Public Relations & Social Media Insight |

This excellent post explain in a perfect way what's going on LinkedIn, what everybody should know about the art of use it, and few other interesting things, a great post who's worth the time you would invest. [note Martin Gysler]


PS: I'll make the five changes right now, and you?


LinkedIn is, far and away, the most advantageous social networking tool available to job seekers and business professionals today. Far and away.


So why is it that so many of us stink at LinkedIn etiquette?


That’s right, folks. We stink at it.


We send out lazy, generic connection requests. We ask people we barely know for recommendations.


We ambush people, asking for favors before we’ve ever spent even two seconds of time building rapport. We shove our Tweets through our LinkedIn feeds, even though half the people on LinkedIn could care less about Twitter.

How to Use Instagram Stories: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Instagram Stories: A Simple Guide for Marketers | Public Relations & Social Media Insight |

Stories provides Instagram users with a chance to share posts at a higher frequency. While Instagram photos are typically reserved for perfectly composed shots, Stories allows you to share the little moments that may not be as picture-perfect.

Instagram is positioning this feature as a solution to over posting. There is a significant separate space where your Instagram Stories live and you can post as frequently as you want without worrying about over flooding your friends’ feeds or filling the grid on your profile page.

So, how does it work and how can it be helpful in building your marketing strategy? Don’t worry we have got you covered.

Before we start with how Instagram stories works,  let’s first have a glance at how they appear on your Instagram profile....

Twitter Just Shut Down Vine 4 Years After Buying It for $30 Million

Twitter Just Shut Down Vine 4 Years After Buying It for $30 Million | Public Relations & Social Media Insight |

Vine will not be an infinite loop.

It was four years ago this month when Twitter bought Vine for a reported $30 million, but now the relationship has fully withered. On a Medium blog post, Twitter revealed that it's shutting down the looping video app in the coming weeks.

"You'll be able to access and download your Vines," the post read. "We'll be keeping the website online because we think it's important to still be able to watch all the incredible Vines that have been made. You will be notified before we make any changes to the app or website."

How long the Vine videos will live on the website is unknown, but creation of the mobile app's six-second clips has already been halted. It's a fairly surprising move....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

That's a very surprising move by Twitter – to close down Vine after attracting 200 million users. The problem is, at six seconds, Vines were never long enough and too limited in scope to tell a real story. Twitter is likely to undergo big changes, very quickly in order to survive. The layoffs and live streaming of NFL football are first steps in a new path to the future.
