Infographic: How Social Media Is Changing The World

Infographic: How Social Media Is Changing The World | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

We know that social media so pervasive that it affects many aspects of our lives, but this infographic thoroughly examines the impact that social media has made. 

Created by the folks at My Life, this infographic charts the shift in power in the music industry as well as the fact that brand posts on Facebook reach their target audience within half-an-hour. 

Other tidbits include the fact that 89% of employers have hired people through LinkedIn, and that professors also use social media to educate their students. 

View some highlights of the infographic at the article link or view it in its entirety here.

With the influence that social media has in the 21st century, it is important to understand the benefits and negative aspects that it can bring upon education. In regards to positive influences, it allows students to be able to contact teachers with ease (not so much in primary education, but at university level), and allows the sharing of information to be easily accessed. However some negative aspects could include harassment and safety or this information being exploited. It's important for students to grow up with knowledge around the use of ICTs and the use of social media but more importantly to use it properly.

I wish consistent greatness was as easy to follow as this or any blueprint. I like every idea expressed here, but there is a certain serendipity to greatness that is hard to capture. I do believe practicing like you want to play increases your chances of discovering the magic serendipity, which I realize makes it sound less like serendipity :), but there you have it :).M

The Most Important Social Media Metrics

What are some of the most important social media metrics you can measure as a small business owner?

Via Alessandro Rea, Jesús Hernández

Alessandro Rea's curator insight, July 22, 2013 10:55 PM

As a small business owner, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the myriad social networks, their analytics, and your responsibilities to them. But, at the same time, it can be difficult to prioritize where to expend your effort, and which metrics matter. As with most factors when it comes to running a small business, it depends on your goal. Whether you’re wanting to get the word out, bring in revenue, or get a great reputation, this will determine which aspects of social media will best answer the question, “How well am I doing?”

The First Steps

Before you get into metrics for your specific goal, you have to make sure your social media profiles are providing the basic benefits. Each metric you track should spread brand awareness, generate leads, or maintain (or improve) brand experience or reputation—and the best metrics will fall into more than one of those categories. Once you’ve established that baseline, you can narrow down your list based on what you hope to achieve by following specific metrics.

Facebook: The Board Game (Is It Better Than The Real Thing?)

Facebook: The Board Game (Is It Better Than The Real Thing?) | Social Media Useful Info | Scoop.it

In an attempt to break free from digital bondage, Pat C. Klein designed a Facebook board game, hoping that it will encourage young people to meet up with friends and engage with one another in person. In some ways, Pat’s idea is quite interesting; and if you’ve been a social pariah so long that you’ve forgotten how to interact with others, well, this could be your lifeline.

As you can see, the game is pretty much based on Monopoly, with Like and Status cards up for grabs. When you land on “Status”, you’ll need to take a Status card which will instruct you to share something about yourself, for instance, “Tell people about something exciting you have planned for the week.”

Peg Corwin's curator insight, July 6, 2013 8:40 AM

The influence of social sharing on Facebook et al is probably more relevant to some products, like music or technology or ice cream, than other personal, high dollar items.  


This phenomenon may be hard for those over 40 to grasp, when we don't know anyone who behaves in that way.


Certainly ecommerce sites should add social logins and social sharing buttons. It's the future.

#10! I can't believe 1/4 of FB users don't even check their privacy settings! This is (hopefully) bound to change with the new Graph Search. Or at least concerning active users. I think FB has been pretty good at communicating the importance of checking those settings every since that change.

The latest one of these free art curation tools to hit my radar is Saatchi Online, which gives you the opportunity to discover community collections, created by registered users to curate their own favorite sets of artworks. When you curate one of this art collections, you can focus on one specific artist or on a theme that brings together different ones. Next to Saatchi Online, you can go to the Metropolitan of New York online, which also offers curatorial facilities, to Artsy, or to Kapsul and Pictify, two curation tools specifically focusing on art. *Art curation tools is now a section of the Content Curation Tools Supermap
