....Hyperlapse has now been optimized to be used with front-facing cameras, creating the phenomenon known as #SelfieLapse.

#SelfieLapse is a lot more than just a gimmicky trend ....there are a lot of opportunities to take advantage of using this feature on the Hyperlapse app.

The Evolution of Social Media (2008-2013) ~ An Infographic

The Evolution of Social Media (2008-2013) ~ An Infographic | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
To celebrate HootSuite's 5th birthday, we've created an infographic offering a snapshot of the evolution of social media over the past 5 years.


Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

That Hootsuite, a social media integrative tool, is now five years old implies at least two things:  


1) social media is here to stay, is mainstream, and


2) companies are still grasping at what to do with it.


Many, if not most are taking incremental (baby) steps to use it enterprise wide.  They are just starting to see the possibilities of how it can empower communication and innovation, using tools like Yammer, Microsoft Lync and Microsoft Lync for Mac, and Chatter for enterprise social media & instant messaging within companies.

10 Twitter Power Tips That Guarantee More Retweets

10 Twitter Power Tips That Guarantee More Retweets | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"Retweets are the backbone of the Twitter network."


 A retweet allows any user’s message to be seen by any and everybody, thanks to the ripple effect.  Theoretically at least, your single tweet could reach 100 million active users.

 

From Deb:  I agree! Along with the #hashtag, RT = Retweets are gold for building interest & connection, if done well.

 

Someone who is very effective with RTs is Guy Kawasaki, who recently published another book, "Enchantment."

 

Here are some of his many re-tweetable, tweets:


  • RT @guykawasaki: 5 ways to update your business communications system [infographic] http://is.gd/DTKqSM
  • Most common & chances for success: RT @guykawasaki: New Year’s resolutions [infographic] http://is.gd/mwkNBh
  • RT @guykawasaki: The whiskey flavor map http://is.gd/kdWEBp
 

Have I retweeted some of these myself?   Yes, via my own twitter streams @dnrevel for chat and @RevelnConsults for business tweets

 

Best wishes in great engagement in the 2012 New Year and thanks for visiting the Social Media Learning Lab digital curation news today,

 

Warmly,   Deb
