Why Twitter Matters: Tomorrow’s Knowledge Network

Why Twitter Matters: Tomorrow’s Knowledge Network | SM | Scoop.it

This article is by  Nigel Cameron and I'm going to summarize and highlight some of the points that caught my attention in this piece.

 

Excerpt:

 

Nigel Cameron:

 

"I follow 300-400 people  I have 400 researchers, key thinkers and doers and scanners of every possible horizon, who funnel their best finds and their smartest comments to me: every day, all the time, and for no cost"

 

**. The value added to my thinking is so immense I find it impossible to think of reverting to other modalities of gathering intelligence and intelligent commentary

 

**The term of art for the vast Twitter output is the “firehose,” and the cap fits. Each and every day, my 400 picked, diligent, smart researchers and commenters send thousands of items my way, their firehoses of news and ideas and assessments trained on me from the directions of my choosing.

 

These curators include some of the leading thinkers on Planet Earth; lesser mortals whose comments are as sharp as they are often amusing; diligent

 

**Twitter as cocktail party. 24/7. This vast research staff is also quaffing cocktails and engaged in constant chit-chat.

 

**knowledge drives relationships and relationships drive knowledge.

 

**the potent digital fruit is served up: when VR meets IRL. The juncture of the digital and the analog; ideas and persons in fission.

 

What to make of this?

 

**"mutual curation" the exchange of information from all the smart people you follow,  your knowledge will grow exponentially. Everyone wins

 

Simplicity can lead to extraordinary complexity, through design and serendipitously the simplicity of Twitter's power is immeasurable

 

Why does this matter?

 

**Because it addresses the fundamental question faced by human minds - "how to move from essentiall indefinite mounds of data to understanding to wisdom, to judgment and finally to choices"

 

**What Twitter has demonstrated is mutual curation as both the answer and attainable

Beyond the Big 3: Strategies for Brands to Dominate Pinterest and LinkedIn [Infographic]

Beyond the Big 3: Strategies for Brands to Dominate Pinterest and LinkedIn [Infographic] | SM | Scoop.it

This infographic was created by Awareness Networks that illustrates some of the great information you'll get in their white paper that I found to be excellent containing  strategies and case studies that can  help brands dominate Pinterest and Linkedin.

 

Excerpt:

 

"In our newest white paper, Beyond the Big 3: Five Killer Strategies to Dominate LinkedIn and Pinterest, we build on concepts shared in Five Killer Strategies to Dominate Social Media’s Big 3: Facebook, Twitter and YouTube."

 

Pinterest & Linkedin are catching up to the big 3 social networks Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, it's time to take these two social networks more seriously for many brands that don't have a strong presence there.......

 

Here are a few takeaways:

 

Strategy #1

 

Pinterest

 

**Register your profile on Pinterest Directories:

 

**WPin.org - based on specific interests

 

**Repinly.com - lists stats on Pinterests users

 

Linkedin

 

**Start a Linkedin group - they give an example where Civicventures, a non-profit started a group called "Encore Careers" for 50+ year-old adults to discuss issues of concern to them in a safe and spam-free enviornment.

 

1,500 people joined the group in a very short period of time 

 

This gives you an idea of what's possible for your brand or group.

 

Strategy #2

 

Increase Content Engagement

 

Pinterest

 

**Aim to become the top pin-board on one or a few topics

 

They use the example of Whole Foods and how they used their pinboards to become a thought leader for recipes, reused and recycled items and green live.

 

Linkedin

 

**Be Unique! Use a video or appropriate profile modules to showcase your company

Beyond Your Borders: Promoting Your Business Internationally Using Social Media

Beyond Your Borders: Promoting Your Business Internationally Using Social Media | SM | Scoop.it

The aptly named world wide web has opened up new methods of marketing for businesses both great and small. The benefits of localizing company websites to target foreign markets are now widely recognized (Common Sense Advisory studies suggest an average return of US$25 for every $1 spent on localization) and many businesses now use social media platforms for domestic marketing, but very few appear to be using those platforms to promote their services abroad.

 

For example, Econsultancy’s 2010 Social Media and Online PR Report reported that 83% of marketers were planning to increase their spending on social media this year, yet only 26% had plans to run campaigns in more than one country.

Are you brave enough to throw out your baby, and take your business in a new direction, one which will see it grow and achieve heights that you cannot currently reach.

 

It takes real insight and fortitude, to realise that your business in its present form will never achieve great heights, and then do something about it.
