The Meme's the Thing

The Meme's the Thing | Social Media Studies- East and West | Scoop.it

Are you a meme meme meme-y? Memes are a big deal these days. You can’t go on Facebook without seeing a new version of the Grumpy Cat, or the Most Interesting Man in the World, or perhaps some variation on the “Keep Calm” theme. If you’re not sure about this whole meme thing, check out Know Your Meme, and you might just get it.A picture hits the web and people start making their own, either with their own Photoshop skills or through a service like the Meme Generator. Others might do their own version of a popular video, perhaps lip-syncing to a song. Some memes take off, while others whither and die....

2013's Complex Social Media Landscape in One Chart

2013's Complex Social Media Landscape in One Chart | Social Media Studies- East and West | Scoop.it

When Brian Solis introduced the first Conversation Prism in 2008, the world was a seemingly simpler place. There were 22 social media categories, each of which had just a handful of brands.


Flash forward to 2013, and the latest Conversation Prism has four additional categories with at least six brands in each. Like other Conversation Prisms, the data visualization attempts to illustrate the array of social media choices available to marketers.

While the 2008 chart looked like a flower, the latest one resembles a kaleidoscope. Solis, a prominent social media marketing expert, says redoing the chart this time around has been instructive. "Things are changing so fast," he says. "We don't even realize [the landscape] is shifting."

 

The chart also points out that, for many, membership in the social media ecosystem is fleeting. While some brands like Xanga, Kyte and Utterz have disappeared, others that weren't around five years ago — like Path and Banjo — are now among category leaders.

Denis Lundie's curator insight, July 8, 2013 5:23 AM

Social media, as expected, are proliferating and also being embedded in collaboration applications. They can be public or private. Different social media appeal to different segments of the population for different reasons. Individuals can, and do, join different social networks for different interests or relationships in their lives. Finally, they are quite simply applications, with different functionality, will behave differently.

 

Much has been made in media and education circles of Facebook and Twitter, ranging from the inherent dangers to teaching by means of these, and how to integrate them into education. Policies have been developed around them. This picture should dispel the hype surrounding the most obvious social networks, as unique threats or opportunities, for learning.

 

IT strategies and policies should not developed around individual applications, especially not social networks. e-Safety education especially, should focus on responsible management of privacy, irrespective the medium. Teaching & learning opportunities should be sought in social media that are built for learning, or embedded in rapidly evolving learning applications.

Digital Curation Tools: The Great Collective

Digital Curation Tools: The Great Collective | Social Media Studies- East and West | Scoop.it

Enter the digital curation tools. There is a very special breed of web users out there that we call 'the curators.' In a sense, curators are a little like their counterparts in museums, because they tend to trade in very specialised, focused content.

Anyone can be a digital curator. As a part of the great collective, curators choose a topic they are interested in, and then search and display dynamic content related to this topic, using one or more digital curation tools.

They are collectors of the virtual and ephemeral and they have some great tools. Scoop.it is a very useful and attractive curation tool, enabling summaries and snapshots of related content from blogs, media sharing sites and other social media to be displayed, usually in two columns.
Storify is another style of curation tool....

The Anatomy of the Occupy Wall Street Movement on Twitter | MIT Technology Review

The Anatomy of the Occupy Wall Street Movement on Twitter | MIT Technology Review | Social Media Studies- East and West | Scoop.it

A study of the social network behind the Occupy movement shows that the most vocal participants were highly connected before the protests began but have now largely lost interest, say social network researchers....

 

The Occupy Wall Street movement began in September 2011 as a grass roots protest against the inequality, greed and corruption associated with the financial sector of the economy. The movement adopted the slogan: ”We are the 99%” which refers to the distribution of wealth in the US between the richest 1 per cent and the rest.

 

What was extraordinary about this movement was the speed with which it spread, passing rapidly between communities via social media and Twitter in particular.So an interesting question is how this movement became so big, so quickly and what has happened since to the most active participants....

How Social Commerce Tightens China's Grip on the Internet - Global Voices Online | Social Media Studies- East and West | Scoop.it

China’s biggest e-commerce firm Alibaba Group announced  on April 29, 2013 that it would acquire an 18 percent stake in Sina Weibo for 586 million US dollars, a deal that could reshape the country’s Internet landscape. Sina Weibo is China’s most popular Twitter-like microblogging platform with over 500 million user accounts, but it has yet to find a profitable business model.
