Study: 1/3 of Women in U.S. Use Pinterest

Study: 1/3 of Women in U.S. Use Pinterest | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Pinterest's popularity in the U.S. has surged in the last year, particularly among women, according to a new study....

 

The social bookmarking service is now used by more than one-fifth (21%) of American adults, up from 15% a year earlier, according to a survey of U.S. social networking habits from Pew Research. That puts Pinterest slightly ahead of Twitter and Instagram, though all three are well behind Facebook.

 

Pew's data suggests that Pinterest has experienced strong growth among women in particular. One-third of U.S. women now use Pinterest, up from 25% as reported in a similar study in February. Just 8% of men use Pinterest, though that's up from 5% previously...

What Is Snapchat?

What Is Snapchat? | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

A primer on the photosharing service that Facebook reportedly offered to buy for $3 billion.

 

.... How does Snapchat actually work?

 

Once you've found your friends on Snapchat, you can simply start taking pictures and sending them out to as many friends as you want.The app has a couple of distinguishing features in terms of photo taking. One, users can draw on their photos. So that's funny sometimes. Two, you can caption any photo. Three, you get to set how long — from 1-10 seconds — the photograph will be visible to receivers. Crucially, too, the app tells you when your snaps are opened by the receiver. You know they saw it....

The new trend: small talk and short attention spans.

Henry Lee's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:59 PM

Basically Snapchat enables people to send pictures or videos, which self-destruct, to people in their network. I believe this type of app is ideal for sharing sensitive information. For example, Kim and Vi have proposed a social media learning strategy for medical residents that may contain highly sensitive PII information. Snapchat may be the perfect tool to support this learning strategy aside from building an entirely new information sharing program.

 

Jamie Grooms's curator insight, October 25, 2015 5:11 PM

Obviously SnapChat is a great app for long distance couples. Send funny pictures, or serious ones to your significant other. Share your day through photos. Article by Alexis C. Madrigal.

Why I've decided to shut down my Facebook account immediately

Why I've decided to shut down my Facebook account immediately | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Facebook has been very kind to me over the years and I've written so many good articles about it that now it is time to add a little balance.

 

Nobody has written more positive stuff about Facebook over the last 4-5 years. I was so overwhelmingly positive about the company that plenty of people suggested on a regular basis that I was a fan boy or that I owned stock in the company. Since 2006 I thought that Facebook was the best run company and most interesting change in technology we have seen in generations. It inspired revolutions across the Middle East, attracted well over a billion users and provided some of the most targeted marketing solutions in the history of the world. Over the last 2-3 months my mind has been changing though and today I’ve decided to de-activate my account on Facebook. Here is why….

Pinterest Lead Generation 101: Best Practices and Hacks That'll Make You a Pro

Pinterest Lead Generation 101: Best Practices and Hacks That'll Make You a Pro | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article on HubSpot:
"Pinterest users spend the most money of users on popular social networks -- nearly double the amount of money spent from Facebook users and triple the amount from Twitter users. This means that there's lots of potential leads and customers just waiting to be engaged and converted who will probably spend a decent amount with you.

Pinterest is actually a fairly simple social media network as far as lead generation goes, because there's really only two ways to generate leads right now. So we'll walk you through both types of lead generation and how you can optimize pins to make the most of those lead generation opportunities.

On Pinterest, there are two types of leads you can generate: direct and indirect. It all boils down to where Pinterest is on the conversion path.

 

Here's the difference between the two:
- Direct Leads: Direct leads are generated through content on Pinterest that links directly back to a landing page on your website. On that landing page, visitors can share their personal information in exchange for an offer.

- Indirect Leads: Indirect leads are generated by using Pinterest on the path to conversion -- but it's not the final destination before someone gets to a landing page.

Unlike other social media platforms, Pinterest really only has a one effective place where you can generate direct or indirect leads: through pins.

How to Optimize Your Pins for Lead Generation:
1) Create a board that your Pinterest audience can -- and will want to -- discover.
2) Create images that Pinterest users naturally notice.
3) Don't use UTM parameters or shortened links in your pin URL.
4) Use your description wisely.
5) Add a hashtag, if relevant.
6) Rinse, repeat.
7) Promote your pins elsewhere.
8) Keep track of your success with a few different tools..."

Each point is anlyzed with more information and external useful links.

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat | Social Media Collaboration | Scoop.it

We’ve heard about how Facebook is losing its street cred and its teenage audience as more and more baby boomers (their parents) join the platform. Where are all the teenagers going to, then? The answer is WeChat.

 

Chinese messaging app WeChat is the fastest growing social app used by youths worldwide, according to a study by Global Web Index. The latest study was conducted based on the feedback from teenagers aged 16 to 19 globally, excluding China. WeChat saw a 1,021 percent increase in usage among youths between Q1 and Q3 2013. The second-fastest growing is Vine at a rate of 639 percent, followed by Flickr (254 percent)....
