58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love

58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it

I selected this post by copyblogger because this is one of those pieces you can read once but it really comes to life when you're writing that article, blog post, curating someone elses piece. There are so many valuable insights and suggestions, it's definitely worth reading and keeping for those days when you need creative inspiration.

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

*GREAT CURATORS Understand your readers. Know their fears, dreams, and desires. How can you engage with someone you don’t understand?

 

**Don’t write for a large audience. Choose one person, picture him, and write to him as if he’s a friend.

 

**Use a conversational tone of voice. Nobody wants to chat with a company.

 

**Be engaging. Using the word you is the most powerful way to be more engaging.

 

Be remarkable. So much content is out there, how can you stand out?

 

**GREAT Creation or Curation comes from CONTEXT Disclose your point of view, tell your personal story, and develop your own voice.

 

**If your readers feel they know you, they will connect with you.

 

**Use familiar language. Check Twitter, Facebook or Google’s Keyword Tool – and find the wording your readers use.

10 Social Media Secrets from the Social Scientist

10 Social Media Secrets from the Social Scientist | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it
Value is the currency on the Web, and the more value you create, the more people will flock to you. It has been said give till it hurts and you will receive it back in spades.

 

There are some secrets regarding social media that I’d like to share.


I’m a bit of a hard-core social media user and I’ve been doing web and content development for many years now. Because I have been online for a very long time (pre-graphical Web), I am pretty attuned to what constitutes authentic and cooperative behavior online. There are things that set apart the altruistic contributor (check out this cool thing!), for instance, from the self-serving ones (buy my stuff!).

 

If you do nothing else this year, consider shifting your social media strategy to encompass increasingly pro-social guidelines. The more you give, the more the community will give back, but it needs to be done with a sensitive hand.

How Google & Technology is Changing Your Brain’s Rote Memory (The Google Effect Study)

How Google & Technology is Changing Your Brain’s Rote Memory (The Google Effect Study) | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it

A recent study has confirmed that the search engine Google is changing your brain and altering the way it works, seriously. But then again, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise since any new technology is going to change the way that our neurons fire and brain works. Anyways, a group of people got money for a study called “The Google Effect” led by Betsy Sparrow at Columbia University. Findings from the study led by Betsy were published in the popular journal, “Science.”

 

How is Google changing your brain? What did The Google Effect study find?

 

Contrary to popular myth that using the internet is making people dumber, that wasn’t what the researchers found. What they found was the fact that using the Google search engine causes the brain to reorganize its memories for information. Instead of relying on what is called “Rote memory,” people are using new technology such as their computers and Google to get the job done. In other words, instead of people using their brains directly to pull up information are basically saying, “I can just quick go Google it instead of try to test my memory.”

15 Blogs To Follow If You Want To Kick Ass Online — socialmouths

15 Blogs To Follow If You Want To Kick Ass Online — socialmouths | Social Media, Memetics, and Cognitve Science | Scoop.it
Being successful online requires that you beat a pretty long learning curve and while I try to contribute with my 2 cents, there are amazing bloggers out there that you should be reading on a regular basis.

These people put their amazing talent and knowledge into blog content and deliver it to their online communities week after week.

I have to advise you that if you see that I’m not going with the obvious is for 2 reasons, one because I like helping you discover stuff that you might have missed (there is just too much content out there…) and two, not that I don’t occasionally read the usual suspects, but this is the stuff I visit frequently. Also let me say that this is not a ranking so don’t pay attention to the order.
