25 Timeline Ready Apps for Enhancing Your Facebook Page | SM | Scoop.it
Enhance your Facebook Pages with these timeline ready apps. A total of 25 facebook apps to choose from, including BONUS app suggestions to improve fans engagement.

 

For page managers who know how to work with Facebook apps, the new Timeline layout for Pages is a great opportunity to highlight their application tab for maximum visibility and increase click through rates. But for those who aren’t, finding those timeline ready apps can be a massive headache.


Before adding any facebook applications to your Timeline (layout) page, there are a few things you should know:

 

NOT all facebook applications are suitable for your Page NOT all facebook applications are free Understand the use of each app before installing Understand each approved facebook app WILL HAVE access to a certain amount of your personal data on Facebook Facebook app is an ADDED advantage to achieve a particular purpose you have for your brand (get leads, customer contact info) but certainly NOT a compulsory It’s OK to NOT install any third party apps on your page if you don’t feel like it

Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring?

Influence: What Are Tools Like Klout Really Measuring? | SM | Scoop.it

A very interesting comparison of several measurement tools and what they really measure. [note mg]

 

For marketers, PR professionals and customer service teams, personal influence measurement tools can save time and help facilitate business decisions. Tools such as Klout, PeerIndex, Kred and TweetLevel are being used by brands to rank the relative importance of customers and prospects, prioritize customer service responses, and identify groups of influencers to target with perks and product sampling promotions.

 

But what are these personal influence measurement tools really measuring? Are they really an effective way to understand which of your customers are more influential?

 

It is easy to understand influence as a concept; if you can get other people to do something, you have influence. But it’s not at all easy to define how you would measure influence. As Nathan Gilliatt has pointed out, there is no such thing as a “unit of influence” – an observable, measurable event that reflects influence.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 14, 2014 11:56 AM

Social reputation and social influence are becoming as important (if not more important) than your paper-based CV and your real-world network. But can they be empirically measured, and if so, what does your score actually mean? This article gives an overview of some of the products/services that purport to give you an influence score. Whether you take it seriously is entirely up to you!

Should I Keep My Personal and Professional Identities Completely Separate Online?

Should I Keep My Personal and Professional Identities Completely Separate Online? | SM | Scoop.it

One question that seems to me to be very important. What is the best way to do, here are some interesting ideas about it. [note mg]

 

Dear Lifehacker,
I'm a pretty savvy person when it comes to getting my work on the web where people can see, but all this talk about Facebook passwords and things has me re-thinking my personal/professional boundaries. Should I set up completely separate accounts for my personal life and my professional life, or is that kind of misleading? How can I juggle privacy and openness, especially if I want to make a name for myself and get hired?
Sincerely,
Camera Shy

 

Dear Camera Shy,
Well, there's no clear yes or no answer here, and what's best for you will really come down to how much you want a potential employer to be able to find out about you. Balance that with exactly how strong your desire for privacy is, and you'll know where you come down on this issue. There are some ramifications to going either way though, and a comfortable compromise in the middle may work best for you—let's dig into that a bit.

New Social Video Curation Website: Zeeik

Zeeik has created a new way to reuse online videos to make and share video-only-consisted information, video Wikipedia; after disassembling videos by scenes or targeted parts, users can reassemble them to create a meaningful video group, a zeeik. 

 

On Zeeik.com, collected YouTube videos are packed and maintained in a video collection called a “zeeik.”

 

Users are encouraged to collaborate on zeeiks and can partake in any or all of the following steps: request a zeeik, contribute and review videos in the zeeik, or edit and publish the zeeik.

Users can also share their zeeiks with friends, making Zeeik.com a social website.

 

Presently, only YouTube videos are available to include in a zeeik, but that won’t always be the case.
