Twitter Background Design How-To and Best Practices | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it
Check out this overview of best practices to stand out from the crowd with your Twitter theme and follow the tutorial to create your own profile from scratch.

 

With Twitter quickly becoming the hottest site to be seen on, everyone wants to stand out from the crowd. There has already been a range of quality designs showcased on various sites, which has shown an emergence of trends such as the ‘sidebar’. Let’s take a look at some of the best practices around Twitter background design and get to work creating our own.

 

We all recognise the default blue Twitter background right? It’s not a bad design, it’s clean and trendy but it doesn’t stand out when the majority of Twitter users also have the same look. Furthermore, if you’re keen to achieve more followers, removing this background would probably help out by showing that you’re an active user, or if you’re tweeting on behalf of your company or service, it helps prove that you’re not a spammer.

 

Generally speaking, there are three main approaches when it comes to creating your Twitter background (other than a boring solid colour!):

6 Social Media Pain Points (and What to Do About Them) | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

Yes, this article goes to the points that can be painful for anyone who is active on social media. I read this post with interest and I could see that the solutions proposed are logical but very useful. [note mg]

 

You may love social media, but even the biggest fans of the social web will find some sources of frustration. What is your social media pain point? I thought I'd explore some of the main ones I've identified and offer up some potential solutions.

 

1. Managing Your Profile and Reputation

So many networks, so many different audiences and connections. Maybe you’re feeling like you have split personalities: being professional on LinkedIn, running at the mouth on Twitter, then letting your hair down on Facebook. But wait! You forgot that you’re connected with your boss or your client on Facebook. Panic ensues. Or what if someone is Googling your name before interviewing you for a job. What will they find? Over the last 10 years, we’ve all learned some tough lessons about what it means to be digital.

Leveraging Twitter for Your Freelance Business | Social Media Mashup | 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.

HOW TO : Use Twitter to Get Out of Debt

HOW TO : Use Twitter to Get Out of Debt | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

Twitter can sometimes seem like a huge waste of time. Especially when people start tweeting about the most trivial of daily routines, one would sometimes wish for just a little more quality control. And yet, the rising social media service isn't just about celebrities and companies preaching banalities to the converted. In many ways, Twitter works like a powerful contemporary search engine, which can help you with a variety of questions and problems.

 

What Kind of Problems?

 

Well, over the past few years, a lot of people have got into difficulty financially for a variety of reasons: The global economic down turn has caused huge levels of unemployment, a massive-scale withdrawal of credit and a staggering rise in the cost of living. As a consequence, people who would ordinarily repay their debts promptly have been unable to do so.

How To Archive Twitter Search Results in a Google Spreadsheet and Analyze Them

How To Archive Twitter Search Results in a Google Spreadsheet and Analyze Them | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

From the article: "I find Twitter the most essential social media tool for Internet Marketers on many levels, mainly because of its search API.

 

Unlike Facebook's and Google Plus's non-existent search options, Twitter makes it easy to go through the huge amounts of updates being published every minute and find those which are relevant (and important) to your brand.

 

Twitter search is priceless for various tasks:

 

- Track updates from any niche conference or event (through the official hashtag). In this particular case, archiving is very essential because your archive will let you find testimonials for your next event or quotes for your event coverage, etc.

 

- Monitor most recent link building opportunities. I for one use Twitter search to instantly react to niche guest posting invites;

 

- Monitor your own brand mentions (both linked and unlinked). Here's one post I did previously on awesome Twitter search operators that let you filter out all the clutter and track only very essential brand mentions (for example, filter out Twitter updates that contain links and only listen to "real" conversations);

 

- Keep an eye on your competitors and how they are doing on Twitter (for example, find negative mentions and be there to offer a better alternative)

 

- Identify active users and influencers within your niche (and get connected to them).

 

The free Google Spreadsheet I am reviewing in this article can help you with all the above tasks: it collects tweets, archives them and lets you analyze them! [..]"

Robin, terrific article. I've been using rowfeeder for this task (not free) and use it to capture tweets after I do presentations (http://www.bethkanter.org/data-viz-12ntc/) - now wondering what rowfeeder offers over the method mentioned in the post?

21 Warning Signs You’re Becoming a Social Media Snob

21 Warning Signs You’re Becoming a Social Media Snob | Social Media Mashup | Scoop.it

Ever think you might be starting to take social media a little too seriously?


Sure, it started out innocently enough.

 

You were hanging out with family and friends, cracking jokes, sharing cool ideas, and having some good old-fashioned fun on Farmville. You know, pretty much like everyone else online.

 

Without even realizing it though, your perspective began to shift.

 

The more time you spent on Facebook and Twitter and Reddit and YouTube, the more it sucked you in, and after spending literally thousands of hours involved in online communities, one day it hits you:

 

Somehow, somewhere, you got… serious.

 

You started counting your retweets.

 

You worried about your engagement score on Facebook.
