Facebook message claiming users have 'copyright' to photos, timeline posts is a hoax

Facebook message claiming users have 'copyright' to photos, timeline posts is a hoax | social media | Scoop.it

If you do not want to fall into the trap, read this article. For once I do not control the information, I published this information on my facebook wall...! [note Martin Gysler]

 

A new Facebook hoax has some users thinking they own the copyrights to material posted to their pages.

 

A news message claiming that Facebook users have copyrights to their photos, videos and messages is a load of baloney, according to a report.

 

They don't.


The post, which has recently popped up in some users timelines, says:

“In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention). For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times!”

To protect copyrights of your facebook content you need to like this t-shirt. Also, if it reaches 10.000 likes it saves a puppy! Please think of the puppies!

Social Media Revolution | Social Media Today

Social Media Revolution | Social Media Today | social media | Scoop.it

Social media has grown to much more than an avenue for teenage ramblings about what they had for dinner.... It’s hard to believe that despite the life cycle of social media being only in its infancy, it has revolutionized our personal and professional lives so profoundly. Organizations have finally begun to recognize the importance of building a business platform that can seamlessly amalgamate the interests of employees and customers. Companies are branching out via social media tools such as blogs, forums, viral videos, Facebook contests, etc. that allows customers to see the dynamic personalities driving corporate entities. Linear processes and conventional marketing models are rusted chains clinging to your organization’s arms, preventing it from reaching its true potential. In order to do so, bold and brilliant leaders who are willing to embrace social media must step up to the mantle and overhaul outdated business models to take your organization to new levels. Here are 5 essential tips to follow to become a truly successful social media leader....

What is Social Media, Anyway? (And Why Managers Should Care)

What is Social Media, Anyway? (And Why Managers Should Care) | social media | Scoop.it

What is social media? Seems like a simple question, doesn’t it?

Despite the considerable amount of attention paid to social media by business, the press, and academia, I’d argue that we still don’t have a clear understanding of what social media actually is.

 

When asked to define social media, most people probably rely on something similar to Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s definition of obscenity: “I know it when I see it.” For these people, the definition of social media is formed by its most high-profile examples — Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

 

One problem with this definition is that these tools are moving targets with continually changing features. Another problem is that these tools are primarily consumer-oriented platforms that may not reflect the many possibilities of social media for business. They encompass part, but not all, of the term. Strike one.

Managers need to keep up with what social media is becoming and how to use it.

Leaders Online's curator insight, May 31, 2013 10:32 AM

Artikel gaat in op kenmerken en typeringen van social media en waarom managers die moeten begrijpen. 

 

"....so that they can understand its strengths and weaknesses for their own business. Customers and employees are often using social media, whether the manager likes it or not. Competitors are innovating and experimenting with social media to conduct their own business faster, at a greater scope, and with broader reach than is possible without these tools......"

JC Penney Handled Their Hitler Teapot Debacle Like a Pro

JC Penney Handled Their Hitler Teapot Debacle Like a Pro | social media | Scoop.it

JC Penney was under some social heat after some Reddit users (yup, here’s Reddit again – told you it was one to keep an eye out for!) remarked that the company’s new teapot bares a slight resemblance to Adolf Hitler.

 

Yes, this is obviously an innocent mistake and a matter of personal perception – and is most certainly not a crisis. However, as we’ve seen time and time again, when not responded to appropriately, social media issues can escalate into social media crises.

How did JC Penney respond to the Hitler accusations?

JC Penney was wise to not take the situation too seriously, though they knew that it still needed to be responded to. Their strategy was to develop a response tweet and use it to respond to everyone mentioning the teapot in relation to Adolf Hitler.

Marketing Buzzwords | Social Media Today

Marketing Buzzwords | Social Media Today | social media | Scoop.it

Terms like agile marketing, infographic and gamification aren’t marketing buzzwords, they’re actual terms that every marketer needs to fully understand. Some of the other terms are buzzworthy, but still not that bad. The folks at Mashable have put together this infographic on 30 days of Marketing Buzzwords. As a guy who can’t stand marketing speak, I always appreciate when we take a good look at marketing BS. I’ll be honest, though, and admit that I think this infographic just may be full of it.Terms like agile marketing, infographic and gamification aren’t marketing buzzwords, they’re actual terms that every marketer needs to fully understand. And my biggest problem is with the term Return on Investment being listed as a buzzword. ROI isn’t a buzzword… it’s an absolute necessity. ...

Knowing the terminology is important to adapting to new roles in the marketing and customer attraction and acquisition process. Experience is the ability to utilize these terms in a productive and creative manner.
