This is a masterful collection of content marketing blogs you should follow.

John Norman's curator insight, January 22, 2:44 PM

50 sounds a lot of blog reading. However number you actually engage in the key point to remember is to find discussions that are relevant to you or your business and read the original contribution and all following contributions before adding anything. Make sure you focus on adding quality rather than quantity. I suggest you create a log to record your activities so you can follow up in week or so.

Sommige verhalen laten zich goed vertellen door gebruik te maken van een tijdlijn. Neatline heeft als basis het open source framework Omeka, vergelijkbaar met WordPress, en is een plugin. Dat zal dus wel in eigen database geïnstalleerd moeten worden. Mooie applicatie.

Software di uso libero che combina l'uso di mappe, anche storiche, e di strumenti per creare timeline colo risultato di consentire la realizzazione di storie e/o presentazioni molto efficaci.

What’s Up with QR Codes: Best Tools & Some Clever Ideas - Learning in Hand | Social Media Tips | Scoop.it
QR (Quick Response) codes can make classrooms more efficient and interactive. Instead of typing in a web address, a student can open an app and point his or her device’s camera at the code and walk away with a website, audio, or video open in his or her web browser. QR codes store information in an image made up of tiny squares, and anyone can create them.

Social sharing buttons on websites account for less than 30 percent of all sharing, and links shared on Thursday get peak engagement and the longest-lasting traffic.

Those are only two of the results of a RadiumOne study focusing on sharing behavior. RadiumOne is an enterprise advertising platform that operates the Po.st social sharing and URL-shortening platform — which naturally generates a lot of data on what people share, how they share, and what kind of sharing is the most effective.

Onecoin's curator insight, January 15, 12:39 AM

Welcome to my first newsletter of 2015, and what a way to start the New Year with 35000 members and counting!!

We are adding somewhere between 1000 and 2000 members a day right now which means we could be looking at between 400 000 and 500 000 members this time next year.

In my estimation, if we continue at this growth rate, once we start the mining on January 20th, we would be well on track to become number two in cryptocurrency market capitalizations, just behind the leader Bitcoin which is currently standing at a market cap of $ 3,691,867,140 and well ahead of number two, Ripple at only $577 million. Source: http://coinmarketcap.com/

And if we can achieve this in our first year…what do you think will happen in year two? Correct, OneCoin can become the Number One cryptocurrency in the world, ahead of current dominant player, Bitcoin which has been around since 2008.
Onecoin is still in an early stage and therefore interesting for investors, while Bitcoin is already very mature . less profit there
