ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard

ROCKZi Is Blekko’s New Social Content Curation Site: Hybrid Between Pinterest And Flipboard | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it

Robin Good: ROCKZi is a new social news discovery and sharing service launched by the human curated search engine Blekko.

 

The service intelligently leverages the great work done by its own human curators to generate a thematic news board that is an hybrid between the experience of Pinterest and the one of Flipboard.

 

From GigaOM: "...taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.

 

The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.”

 

As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."

N.B.: Not only you can browse and discover news through the existing boards, but if you scroll below them, you will find a search box that allows you to dive and find news on ANY topic you want.
Examples:

http://rockzi.com/search?q=curation

http://rockzi.com/search?q=curation&tag=&date=1

http://rockzi.com/search/?q=%22robingood%22



More info: http://rockzi.com/about (here you can find the ROCKZi bookmarklet and the opportunity to suggest a new topic board)

The Mattel and Greenpeace story using Ken, the doll, as a plot to bring change: priceless! No idea how I missed that one. True Blood using social media via Facebook and video for fans: I haven't kept up with the show but could be swayed to get involved. The recently announced partnership of American Express and Foursquare gives a credit company first crack at making intuitive marketing deals with shoppers that like to check in and share with the world. Forward thinking social media campaigns, that's social media C4!

1. Blendtec (love their videos and site!)

Should you nuke your blogs like Steve Rubel did? | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it
Steve Rubel, a VP of digital strategy at Edelman, recently moved his blog to Tumblr and deleted all of his old posts. He says Google is paying more attention to social signals now, and so a social platform is more important than just having a blog.
But is he right?

Logic+Emotion: Topical Storms Brewing Around #Influence via @Armano | (e)ARMANO

Logic+Emotion: Topical Storms Brewing Around #Influence via @Armano | (e)ARMANO | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it
On the heels of our influence panel at Mesh 2011, Klout has introduced a new feature they call "+K". A simple way to think of it is a like button for influence which connects someone to a topic which you choose. The move by Klout to add this feature signifies a broader effort which impacts conversations on the subject matter of digital influence—that influence is meaningless unless you have context such as what subject(s) people and organizations are credible in. As I said in a recent piece on a related issue, topical influence is what counts. - David Armano | @Armano | (e)ARMANO

What the Playground Can Teach you about #SocialMedia | #PR 2.0 | #Marketing | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it
Integrating social media into your online marketing mix can be a lot like the first day of school. The marketplace, and the playground, is filled to the brim with those both mature and immature, those that are outspoken and shy and each has its very own set of rules.

Remembering that the social world is really a combination of communities and groups who move in ever widening (and connecting) relationship circles, be sure your PR and social media efforts follow the rules that every smart small business marketer needs to know. - by Stacey Acevero / Vocus / PRWeb

Top 25 #SocialMedia Blogs For Businesses | via @Flowtown | #SMc4 | Social Media C4 | Scoop.it
This list of top 25 blogs is nothing new to most using social media. It is my opinion, as great as the list is, offer 25 blogs that don't include sources as large as Mashable, Social Media Today or SmartBlogs. People are tweeting and retweeting their info enough that there is room for more of the small businesses that make social media their focus in a niche area. To bring the boom ,what re your daily go-to social media blogs that don't include any of the top 25 and give you usable value? Social Media C4 - Nakeva

No matter how hard we try, we just can’t build a customer-centric organization if we do not know what it is people value. Social media are your keys to unlocking the 5I’s of engagement to develop more informed and meaningful programs:

1. Intelligence – Learn about needs, wants, values, challenges
2. Insight – Find the “aha’s” to identify gaps
3. Ideation – Inspire new ideas for engagement, communication, new products/services, change
4. Interaction – Engage…don’t just publish, bring your mission to life
