On March 7, 2013, Facebook announced the biggest change to News Feed in its seven-year history.

 

During the opening of this announcement, CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared how almost 50% of News Feed content today is photos and visual content. Logically, Facebook took this information and translated it into a new, visual-focused, News Feed design. 

These News Feed improvements have serious implications on how brands are engaged with on Facebook, and what content these brands need to be posting for ultimate Facebook success.

Pinterest is quietly generating revenue by modifying user submitted pins.

Pinterest is quietly generating revenue by modifying user submitted pins. | Social Media Follows | Scoop.it

Breaking news that Pinterest is changing user submitted pins to make money. Are they now one of the biggest affiliates on the Internet?... That's the question [note MG]

 

I swore I wasn’t going to write about Pinterest again for a while after finishing a six part series of blog posts, but major developments keeping coming and no major news organizations seems to be covering them.

 

If you post a pin to Pinterest, and it links to an ecommerce site that happens to have an affiliate program, Pinterest modifies the link to add their own affiliate tracking code. If someone clicks through the picture from Pinterest and makes a purchase, Pinterest gets paid. They don’t have any disclosure of this link modification on their site, and so far, while it has been written about, no major news outlet has picked up on the practice or its implications.

 

Pinterest doing this is big news in my opinion for two reasons:

Klout and PeerIndex Don’t Measure Influence. Brian Solis Explains What They Actually Do | Social Media Follows | Scoop.it

Whether you like it not, Klout, Kred, PeerIndex, and Radian6 are measuring your social capital — not your influence but your potential for it. Altimeter Group’s principal analyst Brian Solis today releases a free report that explains why influence is largely misunderstood, and breaks down what 14 of the top measurement services are really good for. It eradicates consumer myths about one of social media’s hottest trends, and gives brands an action plan for making money with these tools.

How to Convert a Facebook Personal Profile to a Fan Page

How to Convert a Facebook Personal Profile to a Fan Page | Social Media Follows | Scoop.it

Maybe some of you have wondered whether this approach was possible and if so, how to go about it, here is the guide that should put you on the right track. [note MG]

 

After reading Mike Sansone’s blog about how he was inspired by my act to leave Facebook, but chose to convert his personal page to a fan page instead of deletion, I was inspired to create this how-to do it post. Facebook has what they call a “help section” on this, but as usual, it’s completely unhelpful. Before I dive into the few steps it takes to do this, see what you think (left):


So, as you can see, it never really answers the question on how to convert my personal account to a Facebook page. I don’t know about you but Help sections on websites that don’t actually answer the question, I find quite frustrating.

 

Anyway, enough of my rant, here’s how you do it

Leveraging Twitter for Your Freelance Business

Leveraging Twitter for Your Freelance Business | Social Media Follows | Scoop.it

As a freelancer, twitter is without doubt an important tool to spread your word across the web. If you need advices about how you can do it, this post is perfect for you. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Social media applications such as Twitter can be effectively utilized as a tool for freelancers like yourself to promote your services. In a time when the world is connected through the internet, failing to employ such a simple strategy to connect with your potential and existing clients is a waste of opportunity. Remember that you are promoting to the rest of the world each time you post something in Twitter.

 

The content then, is what matters. You can update your existing clients on your latest projects and network with freelancers like yourself. In your Twitter, you may link your followers to your professional blog where they can further explore your work and even better, re-tweet it to their own network. All these can bring you more business in the long run as these people go on to recommend you to potential clients.

 

Here are five possible ways to make good use of Twitter for your freelance business:...

10 Compelling Reasons to Brand Yourself Today by Curating Other People’s Content | The People Behind the Paper.lis | Social Media Follows | Scoop.it

There are two main reasons why personal branding is becoming a core part of our culture. Sadly, it’s nothing revolutionary! First, we are all being judged all the time, even when we’re sleeping (our online profiles are still up!). Second, we have to constantly sell our ideas to teachers, managers, venture capitalists, our friends and family, to make things happen in our lives. We have to convince them to take action.
