How to Make a Tweet This Link | Social Media Sun

How to Make a Tweet This Link | Social Media Sun | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

That could be very interesting to know how do that. [note mg]

 

Have you seen those pre-written “tweet this” links and buttons that some websites use to make sharing a tweet much faster, and give additional control to the website that created it? I’m going to show you how to make a Pre-Formatted Re-Tweet Link or Button. When a user clicks on it they will be taken to their Twitter account with your message already filled in. All that is left for them to do is send the tweet! It’s useful in several situations, and isn’t the same as the stock Twitter Re-Tweet button.

 

Twitter is becoming known as the place to get news before it even becomes news. Getting news before everyone else has made it a premiere place to look for content, which by default has made it a premiere place to share content.

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Nowhere do the mistakes, poor practices and questionable judgement of individuals, organizations and brands get exposed with such glee as they do in the sphere of the social web. It’s no wonder some CEOs or senior decision-makers entrusted with the stewardship of brands break out in a cold sweat at the simple mention of the words “social media.”

 

Mark Schaefer wrote a great post about Negativity Bias as it relates to the social web and how this phenomenon has created a playing field rife with PR land mines for anyone active in the space. Schaefer sparks dialogue at the end of his post by posing the following question:

 

“In a world where Negativeity Bias is gasoline on a viral fire, and one misstep can overwhelm years of positive work cultivating raving fans, why would anybody take a risk on the social web?”

52 Questions To Ask When Hiring A Social Media Company

52 Questions To Ask When Hiring A Social Media Company | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

As a specialist in social media you should be able to answer these 52 questions ... and if you are looking for a company that will take care of your social media, you should ask them... there's a lot of work ahead! [note mg]

 

Confession time: I have a really hard time getting started. There’s just something about those awkward first steps that makes me delay projects as long as I possibly can. For example, last month I finally fixed the check engine light in my car so that I could get it inspected. It was actually pretty excited since the light had been on since October.

 

Of 2008. I wish I was kidding.

 

It’s not that I’m irresponsible, that I don’t value my safety or even that I didn’t know I was potentially creating a bigger problem – it’s that taking the first step and committing to something is scary. And it’s especially scary if you don’t know where to start. Because the not knowing makes you feel dumb. And no one likes to feel dumb.

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it
Large-scale waves of Facebook comments can come at any time, for a variety of reasons. Try these steps for effective comment management.

 

Human beings are social by nature, and not surprisingly, we choose to spend much of our talkative time on Facebook.

 

Comscore released data in December 2011 that showed Facebook is virtually synonymous with social media. Worldwide, people spend three out of every four minutes of their total social networking time on Facebook.

 

Check out the recent comment counts on nearly any major Facebook brand Page — the numbers get big very quickly. Disney’s image of Happy, the dwarf from Snow White earned over 1,600 comments at the time of publication. Coca-Cola asked fans whether they have ice-cold Cokes in their fridges – 2,170+ comments.

Analyzing The New Twitter Redesign And What It Means For Users

Analyzing The New Twitter Redesign And What It Means For Users | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

The redesign that Twitter has undergone this time around is a marked shift from the past. Up until now, Twitter had stuck to its design elements and at most had tweaked them for better usability. This time though, the changes are significant and going by the number of changes that we see, brands as well as users are in for a big surprise and could radically change the way the micro-blogging site is used on an everyday basis.

 

With over 100 million users and the competition heating up, the change was imminent and perhaps arrives at the time when advertisers are warming up to the idea of advertising on Twitter. The site has grown 25% since October and has in fact become a featured application on both the iPad and the iPhone...

What Not to Share on Twitter or LinkedIn

What Not to Share on Twitter or LinkedIn | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

I really want to tell you about my lingerie ... but I'm not going to.

 

It's true that I've found a certain line of women's underwear that I'm so excited about that, at times, I'm inclined to want to tweet and Facebook about them. But clearly, I don't—because I impose upon myself the common sense "10 second rule."

 

As a business owner as well as an individual who values some boundaries on her privacy, I take 10 seconds to ask myself, Do I really want the whole world to know this about me? Because in all the haste to seem social media savvy, I've seen a lot of smart people do, say and post a lot of things they may come to regret later...

7 Ways To Improve Your Social Media Skills And Influence - Forbes

7 Ways To Improve Your Social Media Skills And Influence - Forbes | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

By this time next year we'll all be looking back at 2012 at the explosion of social media inside the workplace as one of the most amazing disruptors we've seen in business. But a lot of people are not well prepared for their new roles in social.... Are you?

 

Sean is a young guy in his first agency, hired because he understands social, right? Carrie is a little older and has worked in marketing for nearly a decade. Her boss has asked her to take on the department’s social strategy – because she’s senior yet still young enough to get it. Eric is a marketing director and worries that his career might slip away if he doesn’t start building his social profile outside and inside the enterprise.

 

How do these people find help?

 

Social media skills are becoming extremely important to employees, yet I think there is a very significant skills gap here....

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

What do we mean when talking about reader engagement? Well, in terms of blogging the first things that come to mind are comments, sharing, questions, conversion rates. To sum up we could compare reader engagement with building a community. A community where readers care about each other, where action doesn’t stop after reading the final paragraph and where exciting discussions are born. Unfortunately, good content and neat design aren’t the only factors which affect reader engagement. You need to learn to focus readers attention and start a conversation. Developing an engagement is a win-win situation. Your visitors will want to explore more and join the conversation but you, as the publisher, will be looking at higher conversion rates.

 

Gamification is a whole branch in reader engagement which brings together game mechanics and marketing to create engagement and solve problems. What do we understand with game mechanics from a web standpoint? Well, that doesn’t necessarily has to be the traditional online games as we are used to seeing them...
