Blogging is a really important tool to help with literacy skills. Give it a try.

Writing for the web, in all forms, is an essential communication skill. All languages should teach the techniques and rules that apply to writing for the web.

Why McKinsey Says Social Media Could Add $1.3 Trillion to the Economy

Why McKinsey Says Social Media Could Add $1.3 Trillion to the Economy | Social Media Butterflies |

"It's a natural progression of a truly ubiquitous business process. Social media started as a fad, then became a trend, and is now becoming fully integrated in the fabric of how we do business."


Welcome news to the jobs-starved economy. 




The study states that, "two-thirds of this potential value lies in improving collaboration and communication within and across enterprises."   Microsoft's acquisition of Yammer and's purchase of Radian6 are evidence, as well as designated new internal productivity tools that will integrate into current business processes.


Think of the jobs-creation these new tools might influence.


Educate both the workforce and leaders on what social media is and how to access its power.

Retool to welcome the millennial workforce who takes access to social technologies as a given.


The study also states:

very few [companies] are anywhere near to achieving the full potential benefit of social media.
the most powerful applications of social technologies in the global economy are largely untapped

Robin Good's insight:



If you are interested in what could be a good workflow and set of tools to use to curate content on your own WordPress blog, Nathan Weller has a must-read article for you.


In it, he dissects and explains the tools he uses to curate content on WordPress, from how he aggregates and browses RSS feeds, to how he filters, edits and actually curates the content of each post.


Interestingly his focus is on quality, not on having his site populated by lots of "somewhat relevant" content pulled in automatically by one of the many "content marketing"-oriented curation tools available today.


I think you will find several interesting ideas that you may have not considered on how to approach your curation workflow, let alone checking the several insightful comments at the end.



Lost of valuable information, resources, examples and advice. 8/10

Thank you so much Robin! This is good stuff!
Regina Torres's curator insight, January 24, 2014 10:39 AM

Nathan Weller alude al uso de dos bookmarklets para curar contenidos. Se trata de Feedly y Tabcloud, herramientas interesantes que sirven para curar contenidos. Y es que no necesitamos un pluggin increíble para curar contenidos en nuestro Wordpress, sino que estos bookmarklets pueden hacer la misma función incluso de una manera más eficaz.

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress: 6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin

Finally, Easy Stuff for WordPress:  6 Reasons to Install AND USE the WordPress Jetpack Plugin | Social Media Butterflies |

"This review of Jetpack got me over my doldrums and disaffected non-blogging status with my WordPress website.  It's a very handy and FREE set of tools!"

I've implemented the social media integration already via my self-hosted Wordpress site:   This social media share plug-in element IN PARTICULAR is EASY.  Finally, Wordpress!   

Glossy, media rich platforms that don't so much need the heavy lifting of html like Posterous and Tumblr still dazzle, but at least WP is catching up with this fantastic plugin pack with it's very own navigation menu.

Why, I might even mini-blog this and pin it on one of my 45 Pinterest boards.  Heh, and you might think I'm kidding.

Below is the #1 reason from the Jetpack review on why Wordpress users will want to take a look at this cool plugin pack.  


1. Easy to Install, Setup, and Learn

Jetpack could not be easier to install and set up, considering how many different benefits it provides.


To install it, just go to Plugins –> Add New and then type “jetpack” into the search box. It’ll be the first result.

Hit “Install Now” and you’re ready to go (unless you need to create a account, which is necessary so you can link it with your blog and Jetpack).


Once you’ve got the plugin activated, it will create its own dashboard nav bar menu section right at the top.

If you want to see the social media I now am using, thanks to JetPack, which made it EASY, go to THIS blog post, "Open Space on Speed: Social Business with the Coaches, Results! Video"  and scroll down to the bottom.  

Note the social media icons and ease with which you can comment and share!  (And DO feel free to share with comments! :-)


Enjoy.  There's something there for just about everyone, it seems.
