Social Media Management 101: A Complete Guide for Businesses. | Social Media | Scoop.it

Nadia Christian's insight:

With so many new social media tools it can be overwhelming. This guide mentions some good social media management software including my favorite, Hubspot. At the end of the day, it's important to analyze the customer first and learn as much as you can about them. Once you have their profile, decide which social media is best to reach your ideal customer. As simple as this sounds, are you using that approach?

Curate All Your Open Browser Tabs with the Collectably Chrome Extension

Robin Good's curator insight, August 23, 2013 10:51 AM



Collectably is a content curation web app which allows you to bookmark any web site and to organize it into visual collections. A unique Chrome extension makes Collectably particularly useful as it pioneers the ability to save all of your open tabs into a visual collection that you can immediately prune, organize visually and sub-divide into specific groups. 


This feature by itself is worth gold for any serious researcher or content curator as it allows to easily move from seeing just trees into seeing the whole forest and into organizing into logical groups for further work. Priceless.


If you frequently search and explore new information and tools online, I highly recommend it. It's that good.


Free to use.


Try it out now: http://collectably.com/ 


Chrome extension and Bookmarklet: http://collectably.com/#/tools 


N.B.: You have by default a similar functionality available inside Firefox. It is called Group Tabs and you can activate it by goign to the View menu -> Toolbars -> Customize and by dragging the mosaic looking Tab Group icon into your browser top bar. 


Try it. It's excellent. The only difference with Collectably is that Group Tabs are private to you and not shareable on the web. 




Lila Hanft's curator insight, August 24, 2013 4:19 PM

If you use Chrome, you can collect several open tabs at once with this extension -- great way to save your place if you have to quite while in the middle of researching something, but also a good way to package disparate sources of information together.

Despite recognizing the potential local opportunities that Nearby provides, the feature is still in its beta stage and has not been released to all users on Twitter. In addition, users must opt-in to share their location, which means that the user pool is currently limited
