The Power of Visual Content

The Power of Visual Content | Social Media | Scoop.it

If you are feeling like you are drowning in content, it’s because you are! The world’s information is currently doubling every two years, giving us access to more data, facts and stories than ever before. And, thanks to our smartphones, tablets and the Internet, we are constantly receiving, analyzing, sharing and creating even more information. But, as content marketers, how do we ensure that our content can break through this sea of information? We can by embracing visual content.

 

Why create visual content? Visuals aid in decision-making and are more persuasive and make a better, longer overall impression than simple text. Consider these facts:

90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. Visuals are processed 60,000X faster in the brain than text.60% of consumers are more likely to click on a business whose images appear in search results67% of consumers consider clear, detailed images to carry more weight than product information or customer ratings

Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically

Content Curation: 10 Tips To Help You Curate Ethically | Social Media | Scoop.it

Excerpt from the article by Pawan Deshpande and published on Content Marketing Institute:
"Many content curators are still unsure about what constitutes ethical curation, and how they can share third-party content without running afoul of copyright laws.
Here’s our 10-step checklist to help you curate ethically and effectively.

1. Draw from a variety of sources;
2. Prominently link to the original source;
3. Avoid “nofollow” links;
4. Quote sparingly;
5. Insert your own point of view;
6. Fill in the gaps;
7. Use thumbnail images;
8. Give readers the option to close an iFrame or share bar;
9. Add a new title;
10. Claim Google authorship, as appropriate..."

Each step is analyzed with more information. Read full original article here:

Do you ever worry that you might you be tweeting and blogging into empty
space? Are you sure that the time you invest in social media is well spent
or do you have a nagging suspicion that nobody is listening? Most academics
use social media without any clear plan - they're just putting out material
and hoping for the best. But if you really want to harness the power of
social media to generate impact from your research, you need a plan. It

If you've been researching, curating resources, or just avidly reading in the digital space for a long time, you probably have a long list of blogs you check out regularly. And if you're like me, you probably cull that list more frequently than you add to it. But today, thanks to this post, I've added a few new finds. Happy reading!

But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.
