How do you get your head around social media and how can it fit around your work or business needs? Is it important to spend a few minutes everyday on Facebook or Pinterest. Here are some inside tips that I found interesting that may help you through the maze of questions you may have on this topic.

Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social

Using Google+ Is The Best Way To Boost Your Website's Search Ranking With Social | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it

Since Google introduced "Search Plus Your World," most Google Search users have seen results that add more emphasis to sites shared on Google+.


One search engine marketing firm, TastyPlacement  - http://bit.ly/KBn2qJ, took it upon themselves to conduct an unscientific-ish study to determine just how much of an effect Google+ promotion has on search ranking.

 

It turns out having Google+ followers boosts the ranking the most, while a "+1" still does way more for your search ranking than Facebook or Twitter.

 

Twitter actually ranks the lowest — which, given the bickering between Google and Twitter, isn't all that surprising either.

7 Social Media Strategies Every Teacher Needs to Learn Today and Teach Tomorrow - Brilliant or Insane | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
In a world ruled by content curation, every educator should be passing along social media strategies to students. The “That’s a parent’s job” mantra is not a sufficient excuse for ignoring your responsibility here. We’re in this together.

Students must be taught early and often how to create, locate, maintain and share content. And they need to understand the ramifications of everything they do on social media.

A Good Visual Timeline On The History of Hashtag ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Social media don't be overwhelmed! | Scoop.it
This little digital creature called Hashtag has been revolutionizing the way people network, communicate and share on social media websites. It first started on Twitter around the year 2009 then Google Plus adopted it in 2012 before Facebook officially integrated it in June 2013. However, what is mysteriously unknown about this #poundsign is that its origin dates back to the 12th century when the #symbol first appeared in the musical realm. Since then, hashtags have been used in different contexts and for different purposes till they finally landed in the social media landscape some few years ago. The visual below provides a very good visual illustration of the chronological development of the sign #hashtag.
