If you are looking for an effective tool to keep yourself update on your favorite web news, social media and RSS feeds this Chrome extension can provide an effective and free solution.



From Cnet HowTo: "Newer versions of Chrome spruce up the New Tab page by adding some shortcuts to your most-visited Web sites or Chrome apps.


A previous extension I wrote about, New Tab Page adds the weather, some headlines, and links to Chrome apps. Onefeed does all of this, plus a custom newsfeed and social media updates from Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also attach your Dropbox account, if you really want to.


To get started, just install a copy of Onefeed for Chrome by visiting their Web site, then click the Get Onefeed button. You won't see a new icon appear, but you should see an alert from Chrome saying that the extension has been installed."


Free to use.

The Future is Data

The Future is Data | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

At a time when journalism is undergoing a profound crisis as a result of the rise of social networks, financing difficulties, and increasing layoffs in the media industry, the 1st Data Journalism Conference organised by the Spanish chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation opened up a new direction for the profession; a future that paradoxically goes back to its origins: to the search for new sources, to objective accounts of events and to data analysis.

Fàtima Galan's curator insight, July 16, 2013 4:31 AM

Great summary about the speakers talk given on the 1st Data Journalism Conference by Mar Cabra, Eva Belmonte, John Burn-Murdoch and Manuel Aristarán.
Through the data analysis today we can speak about Data Journalism, Smart Cities, Open Government. The use and exploitation of any data source, proprietary or external (Open Data or not), shows a change that allows processes for understand what happens and the development of others oriented to the business. The companies are the main interested on the acquisition and exploitation of this data to gain competitive advantage. But they aren’t the only ones able to use this data. Users can also maximize the creation and use of information for the creation and development of politics that allows a better management of our resources and benefits for the citizens.

Andy Bull's curator insight, June 18, 2013 3:41 PM

This from the post: "Journalism schools and organizations need to stop being complicit in preparing students for the past. The courses still taught most often teach skills that worked well 10 to 20 years ago. But media organizations haven’t been clear either about what they want or need from J-schools.

Innovation in our journalism schools remains the needed and missing link that will blend new and old skills along with an appreciation of the business challenges that threaten the survival of journalism as we have known it."

Best Times to Post on Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC] | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

Social media is 24/7. Someone is always tweeting, posting on Facebook, or uploading a new picture to instagram. However, for social media managers and businesses alike, this can be quite of a challenge.

We obviously can’t be online all day, even for those of us who are social media managers or strategist. But how do you know when to best reach your audience? There are a couple different ways to determine when your audience is online: view the infographic and visit the article link for insights and takeaways...

The Future of Mobility [Infographic]

The Future of Mobility [Infographic] | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.


Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video. Some apps are being developed that will switch from manual to voice to text to gesture, depending on what you are doing...

Seeking to manage our attention and avoid distraction is one thing, but first we need to be aware of where our attention is going. As smartphones are increasingly used, this infographic highlights in just what way we use our phones. 1 in 5 people check their phone every ten minutes... something tells me that the smartphone may be one of the biggest sources of modern distraction!

A Day In The Life Of The Internet – infographic | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

'There are close to two and-a-half billion people online around the world – this number has grown 566 percent since the year 2000 – and 70 percent of them use the internet every day. As you might imagine, with that kind of presence, which amounts to more than a third of the global population, quite a lot happens over the course of each 24 hours.

The Internet never sleeps.  Is it possible to even fathom the idea of any given moment without someone in the world being connected to the Internet for one reason or another?  It wasn’t that long ago that the Internet wasn’t even a thing, but anymore it’s something that we can’t do without.  ztake a look at “A Day in the Life of the Internet”...

Karen Dietz's comment, May 24, 2013 5:15 PM
HI Barbara and thanks for your input! When Cowbird originally came out, I too thought it would not work for business folks so have ignored it. I thought the focus on personal stories not related to business wouldn't work. I really didn't think Cowbird would be attractive to businesses because of the type of stories people were sharing plus the stories stayed on Cowbird's site. But because they've added new functionality where you can now embed your stories on your website, blog, etc. I think businesses could use it today. The best business stories are personal. I've poked around Cowbird and it seems a simple enough tool to use so I think biz folks could definitely leverage it now to their advantage. I am sure businesses will come up with creative ideas for how using this tool if they want.
Jeff Domansky's comment, May 24, 2013 6:32 PM
Hi all, I agree Cowbird is not for most businesses yet. But imagine if your business wanted to connect with customers and encourage them to share their personal stories in a contest, to illustrate a concept or support a charity? I'm with Karen. It's not the tools, it's the creativity that counts.

5 must-see social media infographics | Social media and new journalism | Scoop.it

A picture is worth a thousand words, but what happens when you combine the two? Though the concept of data visualization is nothing new, the prominence of blogs and image-led social media platforms like Pinterest has truly proven that sometimes the designer’s stylus is mightier than the pen.

As we grow increasingly accustomed to bright, colourful and bite-sized visualisations of what once was presented in dense statistics and complex data, finding the best, most-useful infographics has become something of a task.

I had a hard time finding something I could wholeheartedly classify as useful bait however this seems to fit the bill. It gives numerous rules of social media that can be applied on a day to day basis. This ones a bit jam packed and I can't read a thing on the bottom so that's a negative. But the variety makes up for it.
