Twitter Makes Two Major Announcements

Twitter Makes Two Major Announcements | SM | Scoop.it

Twitter is the second biggest social network after Facebook. Its growth has accelerated after it was embedded in the new Apple mobile operating suystem (iOS5).

Despite its popularity, its user experience is not as inviting or as multimedia rich as Facebook and Google+.

 

Since the launch of Twitter over 5 years ago, users have moved on from a “text” web and are demanding more visual and multimedia centric content.


You only have to notice the fast trending popularity of “Infographics” to realize that the social web requires information presented efficiently and visually with high definition images and media...

Social Media A to Z Series: N is for Networks ~ 40+ Social Networks To Consider

Social Media A to Z Series: N is for Networks ~ 40+ Social Networks To Consider | SM | Scoop.it

I have noticed that when the topic of social network is raised, it usually turns to a discussion of Facebook. Granted it is the biggest player on the planet however it is not the only one.

 

Ok, at some point in the discussion it may get to Linkedin, Google Plus and Twitter (which by the way is a microblog not a network but it is so widely used it surfaces regardless of what topic is being discussed). The reality is, although these are the “Big Four”, there are so many to choose from and depending on “your fancy” or strategy you may want to develop a presence at other networks as a starting point.

 

Now that I have planted this seed in your thinking, where do you start? There are so many out there – really. So whatever your passion, go and find your network. If it doesn’t exist, hey create one!

Social media plays a dominant role in our lives and it is estimated that 22 percent of all time online, or one in every four and half minutes is spent on a social network. Shutting down a Twitter or a Facebook account literally erases one’s online identity along with the data has been shared with friends over the years...
