Bento: Learn how to code

Bento: Learn how to code | Social Curator | Scoop.it
Everything you need to know about web development. Neatly packaged. Learn HTML, CSS, Javascript, Python, Rails, Node, and more in each box with a set of links.
John Thomas's insight:

Bento is a website that, thanks to its author Jon Chan and the many user contributions, has gathered, organized and curated the very best resources available online where you can learn how to code. From html to javascript, ruby, php, Java, perl, Bento offers learning guidance for over 80 different technologies and coding languages. Here is how Jon Chan, a 23 years old who launched this project in September of 2013, describes Bento: "Bento is what I would have liked to have when I was learning to code. I started learning to code when I was very young - about ten years old. Then, the only things I had available were what I could find online and through a few dense books. Now, people have the exact opposite problem: how do you break through the noise and find what's actually valuable to learn? This site is here to help you figure that out." Bento is a perfect example of effective content curation as it does not simply collect and list all of the resources available to learn each language but it only suggests the very best ones, organizing them in easy, medium and hard and providing also "best of" / direct solutions that save readers lots of valuable time. Free to use. Useful, simple and immediate to use. Well organized. 9/10 Bento: http://www.bentobox.io/ More info: http://www.bentobox.io/about Submit new links here: https://github.com/JonHMChan/bento/

Visage makes infographics easy, and they customize palettes for free.If you’re an art director at a media outlet, odds are you have to assign and commission each data visualization you publish. That gets time-consuming, even when the graphic in question is nothing but a small pie chart running alongside a feature story.
Visage, a newly launched platform, provides custom templates for graphics. There are myriad tools on the market that do this (for a gander at 30 of them, check out this list), but Visage is the latest, and it's gaining traction with designers at Mashable, MSNBC, and A&E...

5 Facebook Page Tools to Improve Your Page Management

5 Facebook Page Tools to Improve Your Page Management | Social Curator | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by Social Media Examiner:
"Here you’ll discover five must-have tools every Facebook page admin can use to create and share content that kills.

#1: Create a Monitoring System
Hyperalerts is a versatile tool you’re going to love. It notifies you via email about items you choose such incoming Facebook comments or messages, published posts and more.
You could rely on Facebook’s messages and the activity log, but they aren’t always reliable and you can miss things.

You can customize your alerts based on type of post (updates, comments or messages), who’s posting (fans, admins or anyone) and how often you want to be notified.
Where Hyperalerts really shines is in its ability to monitor competitors’ Facebook pages.
Hyperalerts identifies the type of content other pages are sharing and what their fans are saying, then sends you an email with specific posts and comments from their fans.

#2: Add Functionality
You can leverage Facebook page tabs to share content from your other social profiles as well. You can display your latest tweets, share your favorite Pinterest boards or create a video wall to display videos from your YouTube or Vimeo channel.
Third-party services like ShortStack provide an easy solution to that problem. ShortStack offers hundreds of easy-to-use templates, or you can build your own if you want. Both options are customizable.

Facebook tabs aren’t available on mobile devices.
ShortStack lets you create versions of tabs that are mobile-friendly. You just have to share the permalink of the tab in a regular status update to give fans access.

#3: Find Trending Hashtags
Tagboard is a free tool that lets you do cross-platform hashtag searches. You can search Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Vine to see which hashtags are trending, which overlap and which match your social marketing plan.

#4: Create Engaging Images
Visual content is a huge factor in success on any platform. But if you don’t have an in-house graphic designer or access to Adobe Photoshop, don’t despair. Even if you aren’t a designer, Canva is a free online alternative that helps you create engaging images in no time.

#5: Use a Good Content Curation Tool
You can’t be everywhere at once and you can’t spend all of your time creating new content. If you’re a Facebook page admin, you know the importance of a good content curation tool.

One of my favorites is Swayy. It analyzes the material (and its sources) you share on Facebook, and then recommends content based on related keywords.
If you like something Swayy suggests, you can share it on your connected social accounts (including Facebook) or schedule it to publish later..."

Vellum

Vellum | Social Curator | Scoop.it
John Thomas's insight:

If you find tracking news on Twitter a difficult task due to the amount of stories showing up, and the often missing context helping you understand the value and relevance of what is being shared, here is a new tool that may help you quiet down the visual noise and find more rapidly what is really important. Vellum is a new free web app born out of a quick experiment at the New York Times R&D labs which allows you to see all of the most relevant Twitter stories coming from the people you follow, stripped of their commentary and showing their original title, description and source. Vellum filters out text only tweets that contain no links, eliminates duplicates and surfaces only those tweets that have already been retweeted by multiple people. "Vellum acts as a reading list for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next. We also wanted to include signals about what might be most important to read right now, so links are ranked by how often they have been shared by those you follow on Twitter, allowing you to stay informed about the news your friends and colleagues are discussing most." An excellent news discovery tool for content curators. Useful. Easy. Free. 8/10 Free to use. Try it out now: http://vellum.nytlabs.com/mylinks More info: http://blog.nytlabs.com/2014/04/25/vellum-a-reading-layer-for-your-twitter-feed/ See the etymology of the word Vellum

GoToMeeting Free

GoToMeeting Free | Social Curator | Scoop.it
Your new place to meet, team up, connect, collaborate, talk
John Thomas's insight:


GoToMeeting Free is a new free web-based app (in the form of a Chrome extension for now) which allows you to run video-conferencing meetings for up to three people, without needing to download, install or register anything. GoToMeeting Free takes advantage of the new WebRTC protocol which allows new browsers to connect directly to each other in a P2P fashion and to be able to carry out audio-video communications without the need for additional software or plugins. The interface is minimal, offering only a few buttons to mute video or audio and to invite other persons in your video chat. My comment: Straightforward, easy-to-use, free video-conferencing tool makes it very easy to video chat in small groups without problems. Free to use.
