SAS and R: Example 9.20: visualizing Simpson's paradox | Social Media Return on Investment | Scoop.it

This is a great post by Nick Horton not only for the example R (and SAS) code, but also because of the useful statistics lesson. Here's his intro:

 

"Simpson's paradox is always amazing to explain to students. What's bad for one group, and bad for another group is good for everyone, if you just collapse over the grouping variable. Unlike many mathematical paradoxes, this arises in a number of real-world settings."

6 Social Media Networks to Watch Now + [ Infographics]

6 Social Media Networks to Watch Now + [ Infographics] | Social Media Return on Investment | Scoop.it

"This piece was put together by Jeff Bullas and selected by maxOz, a fellow curator.

 

I chose to post this piece today because as Jeff says "the social media ecosystem is now so extensive and encompassing that it would be best to stand back and reflect on some significant events and evolutionary social networks that could make a difference this year that are impacting how we communicate and connect. The comments from readers are just as interesting.

 

**It's important to stay abreast of these different enviornments where we blog, curate consume content and information. Knowing the landscape and understanding how to communicate in each one network is a whole other conversation.

 

Here's an excerpt:

 

The Social Media Universe

 

Perspective is hard to find unless you take the time to sit back, reflect and take the time to view a “Landscape” or “Universe” from a distance.

 

The larger the view the further back you have to stand to see the depth and breadth of the scenery and ecosystem.

5 Twitter Changes and How to Make the Most of Them

5 Twitter Changes and How to Make the Most of Them | Social Media Return on Investment | Scoop.it

Are you wondering how Twitter’s changes will impact your use of its network?

 

Recently, Twitter got a complete revamp that changed things drastically. Interestingly, it didn’t pump the social network with more and more features.

 

Ryan Sarver, Twitter’s head of API, explained it crisply: “In a world where Facebook and Google are competing on features, Twitter wants to focus on being simple.”

 

This article will review all the changes, from user interface changes to Twitter brand pages, what the new changes mean and how you can best use them.

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012?

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012? | Social Media Return on Investment | Scoop.it

From janigordon:

 

"I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......

 

Excerpt:

 

Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing

 

The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -

 

**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.

 

There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......

 

Takeaway:

 

2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets


**2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don't want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.

 

**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.

Creating Blog Posts 101 | Social Media Return on Investment | Scoop.it

A comprehensive article on the subject, "how to create a Blog post." It gives you the procedures to be adopted to produce structured and professional articles... an amazing post! [note: Martin Gysler]

 

Content

 

This is the most important part of you blog post because it’s what your visitors have come for, so if you want them to enjoy it and come back, you need to make sure it’s up to a good standard. Having amazing knowledge is one thing, but if you can’t manage to organize it in a way that is easily understandable to your readers, then it’s completely wasted.

 

Planning

 

Before you even open up your website, you need to get yourself some good fashion pen and paper and start taking notes. Even if you don’t know the exact title of your post, you should atleast know what it’s going to be about, so put that in a circle in the middle of the page and work out from there with a spider diagram...
