To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

E. E. Cummings

MichaelJDay's curator insight, July 25, 2014 5:46 AM

These look like obvious fundamentals but we must *do these* to help bring us to some level of success that we aspire to.

5 Web Design Ideas via @Curagami Evolution Of Web Design Infographic

5 Web Design Ideas via @Curagami Evolution Of Web Design Infographic | Marketing | Scoop.it
5 Web Design Implications Evolution Of Web DesignOur @Curagami Evolution of Web Design Infographic (http://sco.lt/74Nvsn_ broke daily view records for our startup. Here are 5 Web Design Implications implied by that infographic: - Leave Room For THEM (visitors & customers) - As User Generated Content (UGC) becomes increasingly important its important to build in ROOM for comments, reviews and other UGC. UGC needs an ASK and the room to curate and share results of the ask. - One For You, 2 For Them - Every System & Process you build for YOU, build 2 for them. Can users follow each other? Can users share a profile? Can users share content ideas and content easily? What is your social reward system for content shares. - Social Graphics - there is a reason people in the army wear rank. Wearing "social rank" immediately says who someone IS with a single graphic. Easier to trust social avatars when they are similarly grounded with graphics earned and proudly socially displayed. Social graphics reward those who've earned them AND set the stage for the next generation of people aspiring to "be like them" so a double win. Find ways to share feedback in social spaces like charities do with thermometers. - Build an Ambassadors Area - ambassadors are so important to creating and sustaining online community. Ambassadors are volunteers wiling to sacrifice to JOIN and ADVOCATE you and your ideas. One CSF our startup Curgami is working on is how to quickly identify a website's 1% Contributors and 9% Supporters. Once identified GIVE THEM JOBS and a special place to "hang out". - Curate & Collaborate More, Create Less = more "blank pages" - design is an important wrapper, but web design can become an obstruction too. If you curate a "Member of the Month" feature leave room to fill up as you go. Maybe this month's feature sits on top of 3 previous months. The more face-time you can build for THEM the more social shares and support your online community earns.What about you? What design changes do you see ahead? As we move to "community" how can our design support and create trust?

Thinking In Parallel: A 21st Century Vision Of The Intelligence Process

Abstract: Effective integration and information sharing within the intelligence community is not possible until the fundamental process of intelligence is re-imagined for the 21st Century. The current model, the Intelligence Cycle, developed in World War 2 and widely criticized, has outlived its useful life. In fact, it has become part of the problem. This paper abandons this sequential process that was appropriate for a slower and less information rich environment. Instead, a more streamlined parallel process is proposed. Accompanying this new vision of the intelligence process will be an analysis of data collected from over 130 real-world intelligence projects conducted using this model of the intelligence process and delivered to decisionmakers in the national security (including GEOINT), law enforcement and business sectors. Additionally, the training and education implications as well as the kinds of software and hardware systems necessary to support this new understanding of the process are discussed...

5 Facebook Page Tools to Improve Your Page Management

5 Facebook Page Tools to Improve Your Page Management | Marketing | 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 SystemHyperalerts 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 FunctionalityYou 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 HashtagsTagboard 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 ImagesVisual 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 ToolYou 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..."Read full, interesting and original article:http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/5-facebook-page-tools/
