Pinterest VS. Stumbleupon - For Page Views | Social Media Today | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it
Pinterest is all the rage, as of this writing...
People are motivated to visit blogs from Pinterest by one thing: image quality --

Let's remember, every action in liking, re-pinning and sharing in Pinterest is visually-driven. Recipes, kittens in coffee cups, hot infographics, and inebriated people removing themselves from the gene pool - along with brilliant photographic and video work will get seen, shared (read: lifted and repinned to others' boards) and make you the cat's meow in Pinterest.

Every 60 Seconds 175,000 Tweets Are Sent  #Infographic | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

@LeoWid

 

If you think about what you can do in 60 seconds in your life, it is probably not very much. Yet, if we look at all people using Social Media for just 60 seconds, the amount of messages being sent is quite incredible.

Every 60 seconds, there are over 700,000 messages being delivered on Facebook, 2,000 000 videos are being watched and 175,000 Tweets are sent on Twitter.

Think You Know Pinterest? Think Again

Think You Know Pinterest? Think Again | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

By Mark Pack - http://bit.ly/AkNt7j 

@markpack

 

The swift rising of new social network Pinterest is understandably resulting in people falling ravenously on any data for who is using it, how and why. 

The risk is that a single source of data ends up being widely circulated and taken as gospel, when an alternative analysis tells a very different story.

A great case in point at the moment is Pinterest and the Visual.ly Infographic comparing Pinterest traffic in the US and the UK - http://bit.ly/wdcGMp.  

 

It’s a nicely presented and useful piece of analysis… but it takes its data from only one source which for a relatively low traffic site (as Pinterest currently is in the UK) can be rather risky.

 

Compare Visual.ly’s data (from Compete) with the data from a rival metric firm (Nielsen) for the same month of December 2011 and this is what you get:

The State of The Twitterverse 2012

The State of The Twitterverse 2012 | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

By Brian Solis - http://bit.ly/w1AGy8 

@briansolis

 

With 500 million registered users and 33 billion Tweets flying across the Twitterverse every day, Twitter has become a fabric of our digital culture. Twitter is now ingrained in our digital DNA and is reflected in our lifestyle and how we connect and communicate with one another.

 

While many struggle to understand its utility or its significance in the greater world of media, it is the most efficient global information network in existence today.

 

News no longer breaks, it Tweets.

 

People have demonstrated the speed and efficacy of social networking by connecting to one another based on interests (interest graph) rather then limiting connections to relationships (social graph). Twitter represents a promising intersection of new media, relationships, traditional media and information to form one highly human network.

 

A well done Infographic created by Infographic Labs - http://bit.ly/AnikXE - to communicate the state of of the Twitterverse.

 

It’s quite grand in its design.

So, to help get the most out of it, I’ve dissected it into smaller byte-sized portions:

The Marketer’s Guide To Pinterest #Infographic

The Marketer’s Guide To Pinterest #Infographic | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

By Megan O'Neill - http://bit.ly/x2ii4t 

@maoneill

 

With more and more people joining Pinterest every day, it’s becoming impossible for marketers to ignore the Pinterest phenomenon.

 

But how can marketers get in on this?

So, as a marketer, why should you be on Pinterest?

 

Pinterest has become an online phenomenon as a visually driven social network where users create virtual pinboards that they fill with images from around the web.

 

The Infographic explains, plainly, that you should be on the site because it’s making history. “According to comScore, Pinterest hit 11.7 million unique monthly U.S. visitors in January, making it the fastest standalone site in history to cross the 10 million mark.”

 

For a closer look at how Pinterest has become a major marketing tool, MDG Advertising - http://bit.ly/x2ii4t - created this insightful Infographic that illustrates the demographics, unique visitors, and companies jumping to get in on Pinterest’s popularity.

The Psychology of Sharing

The Psychology of Sharing | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

By Reb Carlson - http://bit.ly/wzJFZO  

@mynameisreb

 

We share a lot online, almost to the point where it feels excessive.

Is it vanity, self-expression, or more?

 

It turns out there isn’t just one type of sharer on the Internet.

People share information with others for a number of reasons, at various times during the day, and with differing intents.

And people even choose not to share things they’re too embarrassed or scared to share.

To understand why people share online, we pulled up all of the latest and greatest studies on the arena. Here’s what we found:

 

Six Types of People That Share

There are six different personas of sharers, according to The New York Times’ “Psychology of Sharing” - http://nyti.ms/wjszdL 

 

These personas are defined by their emotional motivations, desired presentation of self, role of sharing in life, and how valuable it is to the individual be the first to share.

These personas with some keywords to describe each are as follows: http://bit.ly/yCdzMa
