Social Media: The New News Source

Social Media: The New News Source | SM | Scoop.it

Recent research confirms that we are living in the digital information age. Nearly half of all Americans get some form of local news on a mobile device, and 46% of people get their news online at least three times a week. What's more, online news sources officially surpassed print newspapers in ad revenue in 2010.

 

Thanks to online news, we're getting more breaking news than ever. And thanks to social media, we're getting news as it happens—sometimes even before news organizations have a chance to report it.

 

Are more people turning to social media for breaking news?

And can we trust the news that social media delivers to be accurate and factual?

 

Check out this Infographic - http://bit.ly/IxXSoJ - to learn more about the changing face of news delivery and how social media may end up leading the charge.

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers | SM | Scoop.it

A simple guide to understanding how to effectively use Twitter hashtags in marketing and how you shouldn't! [note mg]

 

Every time we host live webinars (and as this long list suggests, that is quite often), quite a few attendees get confused about what to do with the hashtag we provide. What is it? What does it do? How do you create one? Let me explain!

 

What is a hashtag?

 

A Twitter hashtag is simply a keyword phrase, spelled out without spaces, with a pound sign (#) in front of it. For example, #inboundchat and #ILoveChocolate are both hashtags.

 

What does a hashtag do?

 

A Twitter hashtag ties the conversations of different users into one stream, which you can find by searching the hastag in Twitter Search or by using a third-party monitoring tool such as HootSuite.

We are living in a world where influence is migrating from offline to online.

 

The ability to influence is also moving from local to global. Its reach is also transitioning to mobile devices.

 

Reputation and influence can now be gained faster and reach further than in any other time in history.

 

One definition of Influence is “the capacity to have an effect on the character, development or behavior of someone or something”

 

To be truly successful you must have the ability and power to influence.

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation

Are You A Content Curator? 5 Best Practices For Content Curation | SM | Scoop.it

This is an article by Steven Rosenbaum and published by Mashable. Excerpted from it:

 

"Good content curation isn’t as simple as pushing a share button. 

If you’re a curator here are five best practices to consider.

 

1. Be Part of the Content Ecosystem:

Be part of the content ecosystem, not just a re-packager of it. 

Created, contributed, and collected — the three ‘c’s is a strong content mix that has a measurable impact. Why? Because your visitors don’t want to hunt around the web for related material. Once they find a quality, curated collection, they’ll stay for related offerings.

 

2. Follow a Schedule:

Audiences expect some regularity, and they’ll reward you for it. 

Consistency and regularity will also bring you new users, and help you grow a loyal base of members who appreciate your work.

 

3. Embrace Multiple Platforms:

Today content consumers get their information on the platform of their choosing. That means you should consider posting short bursts on Tumblr, images on Pinterest, video on YouTube, and community conversations on Facebook.

 

4. Engage and Participate:

Having a voice as a curator means more than creating and curating your own work. Make sure you’re giving back by reading others and commenting on their posts.

To recommend material that you really think merits their attention.

 

5. Share. Don’t Steal:

Take the time to give attribution, link backs, and credit. The sharing economy works because we’re each sharing our audiences, and providing the value of our endorsements.

The important thing to realize is that we’re increasingly living in a world of information overload. So when people choose to listen to you it’s because you’re able to separate signal from noise. You provide a clear, contextually relevant voice within the topic or topics that you create and curate."

Introduction

 

If you read Part One of this series, you recall I discussed targeting and third-party applications to save you time and help you market you business and product or service more effectively.

 

Goals For This Post (Part Two)

The beauty of Lists and how they can help you use Twitter more effectively Discuss branding, content tweets, and promo tweets and why you need to understand the difference A note on targeted following

 

LISTS


I mentioned lists briefly in Part One for the purpose of finding targets but they do so much more. Here are my top ten reasons you should be using lists:

 

1) The number one reason to use lists: each list allows you to add up to 500 people aka tweeps. You can have up to 20 lists (public or private though I recommend public). I suck at math but even I can figure out that’s 10K people!
