A Tour of the New Facebook Business Page Redesign - Search Engine Journal | Social | Scoop.it

You may have noticed the new look of the news feed and personal timelines that Facebook rolled out over the past few weeks. It's begun rolling out to busin.


Some have been given the option to implement the new timeline before the mandatory adjustment rolls out for business pages this Friday, April 4th. If you get the option to begin editing your page for the new timeline, I highly recommend doing so to ensure their page is where it needs to be when it goes live on Friday.

The clusterFlunk story

The clusterFlunk story | Social | Scoop.it
Midway through my sophomore year at Truman State University I got a call
from Joe Dallago, a good friend of mine since high school. Joe was studying
at the University of Iowa and he was just pissed; complaining that he had
bombed a test because of one question he couldn’t get on his study guide.
He emailed his professor, his TA and was sitting in the middle of the
library but he couldn’t find the answer. There were 400 students in that
class and he had no way to talk to any of them. One of his classmates could
have probably answered his question in a couple of minutes and he would
have been fine.

How marketers can leverage Pinterest APIs - Mobile Marketer - Content | Social | Scoop.it

Now boasting 70 million users, marketers are just beginning to recognize Pinterest as a highly influential social site for commerce, which the new APIs could further cultivate.


Since November, some 20 brand and retail partners with access to new Pinterest APIs have been ‘repinning’ trending content onto their own Web sites, looking to capitalize on consumers’ strong interest in accessing social content from their mobile devices.


Christina Guenther's insight:

"69% of Pinterest visitors have purchased or wanted to purchase an item versus 40% on Facebook"

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages | Social | Scoop.it
While some debate whether Google+ is a ghost town or not, the search giant's social network quietly passed the 1 Billion user mark. That's right: 1 Billion people have a Google+ account which is 2x Twitter's user base and only 15% less than Facebook's. Perhaps more importantly, the +1 button is pressed more than 5 million times a day and 340 million of its users are active.
Scoopiteers didn’t need to wait for those metrics to be public to demand that we add Google+ to the Scoop.it’s sharing options: as our platform is a hub to discover, curate and share content to feed your online channels, it’s natural to offer as many distribution options as possible. So today, after integrating  with Facebook profiles and pages, LinkedIn profiles, groups and pages, Twitter and many other social platform such as Wordpress or Tumblr, we’re excited to launch our integration with Google+ with 2 new features:

"For businesses, invest time in rich product pins, because the pinned image can be paired with pricing as well as where the product is available for purchase. Considering Pinterest users place an average order of $169, well above the average for Facebook users ($95) and Twitter ($70), and pins that note pricing get 36% more likes, rich pins will be a worthy investment in 2014."

2 Facebook Algorithm Updates That Will Confuse You - Business 2 Community

2 Facebook Algorithm Updates That Will Confuse You - Business 2 Community | Social | Scoop.it

It would be great if Facebook asked its users whether they were ready for an algorithm update before it threw it as a surplice that almost always annoys them. Recently Facebook has made two updates to the News Feed algorithm that most users don’t like. One of the changes makes community managers confused, while the other one seems harmless at first sight, but raises questionable issues about the post structure.

Christina Guenther's insight:

"The goal of this update is for the user to be able to recognize the difference between a cute cat picture hosted on an unsafe website and a great blog article that’s attracting many clicks."

"Pinterest now boasts more than 70 million users and ranks fourth among social networks in traffic. With stats like that, it’s safe to say Pinterest is here to stay.

Even so, I find would-be users have many questions about how to start a Pinterest account for their brand: “Should I create my own pin or use existing ones?” “What should I pin?” “How frequently should I pin?” “Who should I follow?”

Facebook Announces Trending Posts

In an announcement late yesterday, Facebook revealed that they're rolling out a new product called "Trending" which will list topics that are most popular on Facebook at that time, linked to a timeline view of posts from friends and Pages on that topic.

It's interesting because while Hashtags will no doubt play a role in determining which posts are included, it's clear from the images Facebook included in the announcement that hashtags will not be the only indicator.

If the feature works similarly to What's Hot on Google+, this could be huge for both users and businesses alike!
