Facebook Launches Collections, “Want/Collect” Buttons That Save Products To Pinteresque Profile Sections

Facebook Launches Collections, “Want/Collect” Buttons That Save Products To Pinteresque Profile Sections | Social media updated | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on TechCrunch:

"Facebook has just begun testing “Collections” — a new feature it says is “unrelated” to Pinterest but could be a competitor. It allows retailers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products. These save and share products to a “Wishlist” on user profiles that host a “Buy” button that can be clicked through to make purchases offsite.

Seven retail partners can now share Collections posts to their fans.

 

Collections could help retailers score viral click-throughs to their product pages by making things their fans are interested in more discoverable to friends. Facebook isn’t earning affiliate fees on Collections click throughs, but it could get brands to buy ads to get more fans.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends.

 

The “Want” button adds a product to a Timeline section called “Wishlist” visible to friends of friends, the “Collect” button saves to to a Collection called “Products” that’s visible to friends only, and a special version of the “Like” button will also add to “Products” but that’s visible to friends of friends..."

4 Content Curation Tips You Can Take from Brand Success Stories | CMI

4 Content Curation Tips You Can Take from Brand Success Stories | CMI | Social media updated | Scoop.it

This is an interesting post by Pawan Deshpande published on Content Marketing Institute. Here is an excerpt:


"Many companies that are implementing content marketing are struggling with producing sufficient content.
Many marketers are turning toward content curation, the practice of finding, organizing, and sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific topic, rather than solely creating all their content themselves.

Here are some real-world examples of content curation at work. Here’s a quick overview of some of the more interesting applications we’ve found, along with some takeaways that you can use to begin curating content for your brands.

- FedEx:
Tip: Curation can add credibility to your corporation’s perspective on an issue by demonstrating that others who have no vested interest in your company still share your views. With curation, you are not republishing the content; rather, you’re providing additional sources and commentary on why these other publishers are in agreement with your position.

- Intel:
Tip: Curation responsibilities do not have to solely fall on your content or marketing teams. In fact, crowdsourcing curation can make content marketing more inclusive, participatory, and yield better, more interesting products.

- The Color Association of the United States:
Tip: You don’t have to limit curation to just text content. If your audience responds to other forms of media such as images, videos or audio, consider curating that as well.

- The Oregon Wine Board:
Tip: There is an opportunity for curation for every imaginable topic — even a somewhat obscure interest like enthusiasts of wine made in Oregon. If there’s no single, authoritative destination for your market, it may be a topic that’s ripe for curation (pun intended).


By having content curation involved in your company’s overall marketing plan, your company can save time, money and resources. Without it, your company’s content marketers will be suffering from burnout. Content curation is the only way to go."

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products | Social media updated | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: eBay has gone the Pinterest way by redesigning its web interface and allowing you to curate your preferred product categories as well as more specific parameters like the price range you are interested in, whether you want new or used items or prefer auctions to "buy-now" offerings. 

 

"Everything now centers on a Pinterest-like feed of featured, personalized, and self-curated products."

 

WebProNews reports: eBay says that the feed will show users “a collection of items selected for you, based on your shopping history or your own personal interests.” When a logged-in user first accesses the feed, they are given the opportunity to “follow” certain types of product lines as well as connect their feed to their Facebook interests.

 

eBay officially announced: “Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you...” 

 

To test the new eBay curated feed, interface redesign and new logo, head to eBay.com (US version) and you will be immediately offered to select five product categories you are interested in.

 

The new eBay also allows users to integrate their Facebook account as well as their PayPal one to make it easier and faster to sell and buy on the popular online marketplace.
