Twitter, Facebook, and Airtime Are Waging War Against The Internet’s Stupidity | TechCrunch | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

The Web is overrun with dumb hashtags, chart-topping fart apps, and guys just waiting to show you their d*cks. But with this week’s launch of Twitter’s Tailored Trends, Facebook’s App Center, and Airtime’s safety net, some tech companies are fighting back.

 

If you can’t get people to act smarter, at least you can hide their idiocy, and that’s what each of these products does. But can we make the Internet smarter and safer with without whitewashing away differing opinions and locking ourselves in an echochamber?

3 Mobile Pinterest Strategies That Work

3 Mobile Pinterest Strategies That Work | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a visual platform that lends itself well to the mobile experience. It's great to share your brand's story in a way that speaks to your audience.


Wade Harman shares three easy tips that make a lot of sense:


1. Keep your most important boards at the top

2. Pay attention to your descriptions

3. Re-pin people


I see #3 as another way to curate content and increase visibility of your brand. What do you think?

The one core secret to social media marketing success

The one core secret to social media marketing success | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

When you are a company getting started with your social media strategy, what do you usually ask? 


Probably something like "Where should I promote my stuff?"; "Do I need to be everywhere?"; "What's the best time to post content?"


Chances that you are forgetting a very important question: "What is the source of my rich content?" In other words, where should my content come from? 


The answer is in this excellent piece penned by Mark Schaefer. Read it at http://www.businessesgrow.com/2013/02/10/the-one-core-secret-to-social-media-marketing-success/

This Brand Blog Grew to 50 Million Monthly Readers in Just 10 Months. Here’s How

This Brand Blog Grew to 50 Million Monthly Readers in Just 10 Months. Here’s How | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

I'm just quoting an extract from Natalie Burg's article: 

Of those 100 or so fully composed daily stories, only about 15 will make it to the blog. The curators gnaw the contender list down by testing each with unpublished paid posts on Facebook. Rather than simply posting a link to their audience, PetFlow pays to distribute them to a certain segment of Facebook users who aren’t fans. If a post meets a certain criteria—a classified combo of likes, clicks, shares, or comments—it graduates to the blog and is shared with the PetFlow Facebook pack.

A fascinating look at the Upworthy-like curation system!

5 Overlooked Social Media Tips to Boost Branding, Clicks & Conversions | JUST™ Creative

5 Overlooked Social Media Tips to Boost Branding, Clicks & Conversions | JUST™ Creative | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Overlooked is definitely the right word here, especially when it comes to tip  #2. Each social network serves a different purpose, so it's important to keep that in mind with marketing campaigns.

Also, #3 (have fun) is a great piece of advice. Social media shouldn't be a boring chore. See everything you do on social platforms as a continuation of your offline work. Share stories that inspire you, for example.

Great personal branding tips here. Don't agree with all of the as they feel like you would be branding like everyone else. Keywords are neutral and informative.

The cover photo tips is right and wrong. It feels a little "we are Borg" , but a big smile and a look directly into the camera goes a long way to what works online.

7 Reasons Why I Won't Accept Your Linkedin Invitation

7 Reasons Why I Won't Accept Your Linkedin Invitation | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Last year, after the umpteenth generic invitation to connect on LinkedIn had reached my inbox, I decided to write a rant-like article on the topic. Since then, these invitations have continued, but with less frequency. It's an improvement. 

With that said, many people still seem unwilling to use LinkedIn the right way. Connecting there means making other professionals in your field aware of your presence. You have to do it right if you want others to take you seriously. 


Michael O'Donnell has good reminders for all of us in this article!
