"Twahpic" shows what tweets on Twitter™ are about in terms of both topics (like sports, politics, Internet, etc) and axes of Substance, Social, Status, and Style. Twahpic uses Partially Labeled Latent Dirichlet Analysis (PLDA) to identify 200 topics used on Twitter.

30 July 2013: The demo is currently unavailable. However, you can see some sample output from real queries.

 

Status: tweets for this query had many terms related to status updates (going places)Substance: tweets for these queries had many terms related to specific entities and events (making money, news)Style: this query's tweets use particular linguistic style conventions (example)Social: this query's tweets are all about "where the party's at" (example)Mixture: this query has an even mix of substance - sports, particularly - and style.

How To Self-Publish a Book With WordPress

How To Self-Publish a Book With WordPress | Search & social | Scoop.it

Whether you’re circulating a periodic publication or writing a book, WordPress provides an easy way to organize and structure your content while it’s in process. Posts can be kept private while you’re working on finishing the book. Alternatively, you can release installments of your work to the public by publishing them on your WordPress site. This option gives you the benefit of community feedback during the process of writing your book.

 

Whatever process you choose to enhance your workflow is up to you. WordPress offers the flexibility and tools for any approach and provides several advantages over traditional publishing houses

The day many SEO professionals hoped would never come, but feared eventually would, apparently has arrived today. It appears that Google has cut off keyword data altogether.Nearly two years after making one of the biggest changes to secure search that resulted in a steady rise in "(not provided)" data, Google has switched all searches over to encrypted searches using HTTPS. This means no more keyword data will be passed to site owners....
