40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

Last month I shared 40+ networks that you could consider depending on your niche or interests. As part of my commitment to this community, I shared that I will expand on this list througout 2012. So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation!I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right. However before I list the sites lets talk curation.

 

What is social media curation?

 

Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin.

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.

Hi Carey, I consider scoop.it as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

The secret to success on Twitter: Link sharing.

The secret to success on Twitter: Link sharing. | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

Brands’ approach to Twitter is in many ways more of an unknown than Facebook. With the way that Facebook Pages have developed, there is a very clear structure to how you run your business presence on Facebook. There is a place for your photos, video, wall updates, then tabs on the side to do pretty much whatever you want with and a clear distinction between friends and Likes. With Twitter, it’s not so straightforward.

 

Sure, everyone has the same basic tool to use: 140 character messages, but there’s little direction for brands. Do you post news, facilitate customer service, are you meant to @reply people who don’t follow you, how do you grow followers, when should DM and not @reply? It causes many problems for brands, who open up a Twitter account, only to leave it to die a slow death as they realise they’re not really sure how to use it for their brand or what value it can drive. A few interesting studies have been published lately that all seem to point to the same conclusion – the secret to Twitter success is driving links...

The State of Social Media and Social Media Marketing in 2012

Social media is a source of endless discussion. With the advent of new tools and / or platforms every day, keep up has become a challenge. But some among the many are the undisputed leaders and decide largely on what will be the future. This slide presentation may give us interesting information on the trends and what might we expect in 2012 and beyond. [note Martin Gysler]


Social networking is the #1 activity online. Even though Google gets the most visitors, Facebook is where most of us are spending our time. And it’s not just about Facebook anymore. We are spending a lot of time on LinkedIn, YouTube, Tumblr and Twitter. While there are some clear major players in the social space, the social media universe continues to expand and 2011 was a banner year for the idea of an "Interest Graph."


In 2011, we saw Google launching Google+ and Pinterest grewing at an astounding rate. Facebook launched "Timeline" and "frictionless sharing" with partners like the much anticipated Spotify. Facebook also acquired design companies and the team behind Gowalla, showing the company’s intent to provide a consistent experience across devices and becoming a more prominent player in the mobile space.

6 Reasons your Social Media is Stagnant (and How to Fix It)

6 Reasons your Social Media is Stagnant (and How to Fix It) | Social Media Headlines | Scoop.it

Stagnation is not a permanent state. It’s only as stuck as you let it be. I’ve yet to encounter many things in this crazy social media world that can’t be shifted without a good shove in another direction. Inertia works.

 

 

Feel bored, stuck, frustrated, overwhelmed? Take charge, and take stock. The internet will live without you for a while if you need to step back and figure it out. No puppies or unicorns will die if you change your approach and do something different. There’s always a reason, always a different choice, and each and every one of you is equipped to find it and fix it.

Now, off with you. Go start kicking over some rocks.

 

Have a look through the list below for some of the causes behind the symptoms, and what you might to do give your social a shot in the arm.....
