Today, around the world more people have mobile phone subscriptions than have access to electricity and safe drinkable water. Today, almost a third of the world's population uses the internet (a 528.1% growth since 2000!

Email is the most common action performed by people on their laptops, while search is the top action for mobile phone and tablet users. 72% of people like to play games on their tablets while 70% use their mobile phones for social media. Where do we use these devices? 72% of people use their mobile phones while traveling, and 64% use them in restaurants and coffee shops.

The good folks at Social Media Explorer have posted an infographic, 5 Key Elements of Viral Content, from Intersection Consulting.

Personally, I don’t like the word viral for this infographic… I like the word shareable. Many times you can exceed expectations on each key element within this infographic – but it doesn’t mean that it’s going viral.

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.

Take A Look At What Happens Every Single Minute On The Internet | Social Media | Scoop.it
Early last year we learned that one hour of YouTube is uploaded every second. It was a bracing reminder of just how many people are spending their time online simultaneously.

 

Created by rewards site Qmee, the infographic "Online In 60 Seconds" is a pie chart that shows off the sheer amount of online activity that takes place every single minute. The amount of YouTube videos uploaded has already increased from January 2012's 60 hours per minute to 72. Additionally, over 1.8 million things are liked on Facebook, and 278 thousand bon mots tweeted. Not depicted in the chart: the amount of work that is going undone while all of these items are being viewed.

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic]

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic] | Social Media | Scoop.it

Social media is, at its best, an extension of the human relationship and an opportunity to look customers in the eye (digitally, that is), listen to them and interact person to person. This is the first time in history that small businesses have had the potential to build a massive fan base without a Fortune 500 budget.

 

The social Web is changing the way consumers discover and interact with businesses online and off and the rapid emergence of social media as a major marketing channel has left many small businesses trying to understand how to find ways to use it effectively. Refer to this infographic to help develop a strategy that suits your business.

blogbrevity's comment, August 5, 2013 9:20 AM
Great opportunity to explain the difference! Permamarks is a "hybrid" way to save links, and the basic version is free. Permamarks creates ONE link that is BOTH a bookmark and an archive at the point of time YOU viewed it: http://pmrks.com/cronut-for-saving-links. When you share a permamark, it provides content in the "context" of when you viewed it. That is what makes Permamarks so valuable for scooping. It preserves a link to a current "realtime" page, but if that page has been removed or changed, you automatically have an archived version at the point in time you captured it. Your scoop.it pages stay relevant and free of dead links. This is very different from other archiving or caching services you can go back to and research pages or links archived at "their" point in time (which may be different from "your" point in time.) Robin, this reminds me of when I first defined curation as different from aggregation because curation presented a "point of view." This is so important to curation. Now an individual can save the internet from their own "point of view." Thank you, again, for this great post and discussions.

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:23 AM

Social media, as expected, are proliferating and also being embedded in collaboration applications. They can be public or private. Different social media appeal to different segments of the population for different reasons. Individuals can, and do, join different social networks for different interests or relationships in their lives. Finally, they are quite simply applications, with different functionality, will behave differently.

 

Much has been made in media and education circles of Facebook and Twitter, ranging from the inherent dangers to teaching by means of these, and how to integrate them into education. Policies have been developed around them. This picture should dispel the hype surrounding the most obvious social networks, as unique threats or opportunities, for learning.

 

IT strategies and policies should not developed around individual applications, especially not social networks. e-Safety education especially, should focus on responsible management of privacy, irrespective the medium. Teaching & learning opportunities should be sought in social media that are built for learning, or embedded in rapidly evolving learning applications.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 19, 2013 10:44 AM



Takeaway: Planning ahead makes social media management so much easier. A simple way to keep you on track is to develop a content and curation calendar for your social posts.

From the original article by Nicole Bremer Nash on TechRepublic:

"Debate abounds over how much time a social media manager should spend each day on social networks and content.


The issue isn’t so much a matter of drive as it is that the Internet is one big rabbit hole of information.


Even if you stay focused on things related to work, you can find yourself losing valuable time in the course of managing your online content."


If you use content curation as a content marketing strategy, learning how to work with a editorial calendar is certainly useful. In tis way you rely less on the spur and impulse of the moment and more of what is really needed by your audience, while seeing clearly the forest from the trees.



Useful. 7/10
