An interesting article. I think that using technology that way could eventually force a lot of big companies to change their policies -- and finally take customers more into account.

Permamarks, a unique bookmarking tool for bloggers and researchers

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

Permamarks is an excellent tool for research and blogging. 

It "freezes" the bookmarked content and gives it a dedicated URL. The next time you click the links (be it in two weeks or two years), you land on the pages as they were the day you saved them! 

What do you think could be the possible uses for this tool? I have two: social media research (especially case studies) and to catch content scrapers.

Thank you, Cendrine! A great post on the value of using Permamarks – "Each saved page has a permanent, uneditable URL that can be shortened and customized. You can also organize your bookmarks into lists." It is also great to use Permamarks to save links in scoop.it collections, too! Never get a dead link again if a page is removed.

This is a clever idea (a few on the market). I have used the system a few times and it's really great. You can persoanlise the photo and send as an image without finding stamps and a visit to the post office.

In this day and age, technology allows us to communicate with people around the world. As such, the concepts of "neighbours" and "proximity" have changed quite a bit.

New influence measuring tool: Prollie

New influence measuring tool: Prollie | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

Klout, PeerIndex, Kred... Influence scores have become an essential part of social media.

The problem with those scores is that they are subjective and do not always offer the best pictures of the influencers. 

Enter Mike and Red Fabbri's Prollie, a new kind of influence measuring tool. 

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's insight:

A new influence measuring tool entered the public beta phase this week. Prollie seeks to be different, more focused on the way users leverage social networks. 

What do you think? Could Prollie be more relevant than Klout or Kred?

Rebekah Brown, CPA's curator insight, March 9, 2013 7:04 PM

Tool that not only grades your social presence but suggests other users with similar "passions" to follow and connect with... Needs more users to see full benefit though, come on early adopters!

luiy's curator insight, March 28, 2013 7:27 PM

Your score is a letter (e.g., A+, B-, D), rather than a number. It is determined by the way you leverage the social media sites you choose to connect to your profile (currently Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Tumblr, and LinkedIn): 

"Each network is unique, with its own proprietary tools and features, and thus we grade on your use and activity of those features. Your overall grades are a weighted average of these grades." (Source:beta.prollie.com/Pages/FAQ.aspx) 

Prollie does not just surface data to grade you, though. The goal is to also determine who you are through your passions in order to find interesting like-minded people. 

To start using Prollie, visit beta.prollie.com/.

Infographic: Is texting killing our writing skills?

In this day and age, we do not call people anymore. We just text them.

 

And when we text, we shorten words. Communication is limited to a minimum.

 

Just like grammar.  A dying institution, it seems — especially among children, teens and young adults.

 

Here is an interesting infographic on the topic created by OnlineCollege.org.

I agree since students are not challenged to hone their writing skills since they just need hash tags and codes.

Interview with Misha Leybovich, co-founder of Meograph | Business in a Social Media World | Scoop.it

In social media, there is always something new to discover.

 

The other day, Misha Leybovich contacted me to let me know about Meograph, the platform she had co-founded with Francis Escuadro.

 

Basically, Meograph lets you pull multimedia items (maps, videos, photos, etc.) to create interactive videos that you can then share with people.

 

I think the idea is very interesting. I haven't tried the service yet, but decided to interview Misha to learn more about it.
