Facebook rolls out the ability to manage pages from mobile apps

Facebook rolls out the ability to manage pages from mobile apps | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

For anybody who manages a Facebook page, the big challenge has always been doing so from a mobile device... amazing [note mg]


Managing Facebook pages from mobile devices has been a tricky challenge for page admins, but thankfully Facebook has just started testing an app that will make their lives easier. It’s called Facebook Pages Manager and it is available in the app store now for some countries and is rolling out to everyone in the next few days.


This is an interesting move as it seems to be part of a wider strategy by Facebook to launch individual apps for specific features on the site instead of trying to pack all their features and services into one main app. This new app allows you to log in as your actual page rather than trying to access it through your own personal app, which had caused major confusion for users in the past. This was especially true for those in the unfortunate position to be managing several Facebook pages.

8 Firefox Add-Ons That Help Me to Build Rank and Profit. | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Mozilla Firefox is the best web browser ever! It still randomly crashes on me which pisses me off to no end, but even after this it’s still better than Internet Explorer. Buuuuut I’m not here to argue about Browsers (unless you want to of course, just provoke me further in the comments thread and we’ll see where it goes )


No, I am here to talk about the Add-Ons that I utilize day in, day out and why I simply cannot live without them.


Some people call them Plug-ins (which is actually not correct because plugins for Firefox are entirely different and are reserved for programs like Java, Quicktime and Shockwave, just to name a few.)...

Concerned about Facebook privacy? Disconnect blocks sites from tracking your data | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

With Facebook under pressure regarding privacy concerns, more and more users are becoming concerned about what information third-party sites have access to and how much of it they retain. If you’re one of these users who likes using Facebook and Twitter but prefer to keep your cookies in check, then you may be interested to hear about Disconnect.


Disconnect was created by three former Google employees who wanted to continue using Facebook but had concerns about their privacy policy. Their extension prevents sites and search engines such as Google, Facebook and Twitter from tracking your online activity while you surf the web.

Why if you miss Siri you’ll miss the future of the Web

Why if you miss Siri you’ll miss the future of the Web | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Siri is the most useful thing I’ve seen so far this year.


But after playing with it, getting an interview with its CEO (video here on building43) it’s even more important for you to pay attention to.

 

It is the best example of what the web will be.

 

Let’s go back.
Web 1994 was the “get me a domain and a page” era.
Web 2000 was the “make my page(s) interactive and put people on it” era.
Web 2010 is the “get rid of pages and glue APIs and people together” era.

 

Siri is the best example. First, it’s not a website. It’s an application you put on your phone (today iPhone, soon others like Android and Blackberry). Second, it isn’t a search engine, those are so 1998. It’s a system that assists you in your life.

cooala - Play, Discover, Benefit

cooala - Play, Discover, Benefit | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

An app for consumers to playfully connect with brands. In a thrustworthy and straight forward way.

Martin Gysler's insight:

Mobile App for Brand Lovers

 

cooala is a mobile App for playful and controlled interaction between brands and their fans - an answer to Facebook from the year 2012. 

 

Why cooala?

Young consumers are not easily reached through advertising. Even on social platforms like Facebook, they have little interest in connecting with brands. According to a Forrester Study from 2012, only 6 percent do so the in the USA. Companies are complaining about narrow reach and high advertising budgets on the Zuckerberg platform, users are unsure about their private data and are annoyed by the massive increase in advertising on their Wall. This is exactly where cooala steps in: cooala users discover brands, subscribe to specific content, and benefit from exclusive content and offers from their favorite brands. All while keeping full control of their data.

 

For the user: Very playful

 „What’s cooler?“ is the key question: Gaga or Bieber? FC Bayern Munich or Real Madrid? DC or Quicksilver? Ferrari or Mini? In different product categories, Fans choose their favorite from a suggested pair and thus build their Brand Map. New, cool brands can be explored through the photos and info on the site, and everything can be shared with friends. The best part: Fans only subscribe to exactly the offers that interest them: a VW event, a Stimorol sample, McDonald’s Coupons, or info about new products from Apple. And all of this in one place.

 

cooala offers its users:

a playful way to rate brands and share with friendsthe opportunity to discover thousands of new brands, soon also locallya way to collect their favorite brands in Brandboardsthe ability to subscribe to brands they love, receiving product news, event invitations, samples, coupons, gifts, and more. No spam - only what they’ve subscribed to.Complete control over their contact with companies

For Companies: Market research and accurate Targeting

The platform is also very advantageous for companies: for one, messages, information, and giveaways don’t have to be sent randomly and with high waste. Thanks to cooala, fans can decide themselves exactly what they want to get, and receive only the content they choose - a perfect qualified lead.

 

Companies therefore communicate with their Fans eye to eye, in common agreeance, and without loss.

 

Also very interesting: cooala delivers real time market research data about brands and their competitors, for example the coolness factor of a brand, market development compared to the competition, and the wants and needs of the users.

 

cooala offers companies:

Contact with high affinity target groups without waste.An unobtrusive, playful communication channel to existing and new fans.Anonymous market research data about their own brand and those of competitors.Highly efficient tool to launch campaigns easily and quickly with a target oriented approach.

The five cooala partners, all experienced specialists in their fields, are developing the app at full speed. CEO Mike Schwede is confident: “The reactions we’ve seen in young, brand oriented target groups is very positive. They are looking through the Brand Profiles, playing enthusiastically with the App, and are spreading the word through the Share Function.”

 

iPhone users can download cooala in the Appstore starting today. The Android version of the app is planned for Spring, and the trimmed down Facebook version is currently in development.

30 Days with Siri

30 Days with Siri | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Disclaimer: Apple has done such a good job of giving a Siri a persona that many times throughout this article I will refer to Siri as ‘her’ or ‘she’. Thanks for making me think my phone is a person, Apple.


This is the tale of a 2 hour a day commuter, 8 hour a day Fortune 500 company employee, and part time Lifehack editor living in the USA using Siri over the last 30 days. Enjoy.


It’s hard to believe that the iPhone 4S has already been out for a month. In this small amount of time we’ve seen iPhone 4S battery issues come and go, Siri outages, and data usage problems (that may not really be problems). But, just like every year, the iPhone proves to be one of the best selling smart phones of all time. It isn’t really surprising, is it?...

Everyone talks about how important it is to build an iPhone or Android app, but it doesn’t look inexpensive or easy. Until now. I’ve been testing appsbar, a free Web-based app that allows small business owners create their own iOS or Android application.


I found appsbar.com when researching the digital coupon phenomenon (think Groupon and Living Social) and discovered a post by appsbar founder Scott Hirsch, who built the tool, in part, as a do-it-yourself coupon service.

At some point, over 55 Million users were using this tab to talk, share their points of view, give feedback, and connect with each other.

It’s just over 3 months since Google dropped the bombshell that it was launching their own social network and inevitably the attention immediately switched to Facebook to see what they would do in counter the launch. Facebook were initially quiet but they went in to their famous “Lockdown” phase and started rolling out a whole host of new features many of which were lightly “inspired” by Google +. If anything the launch by Google seems to have helped accelerate the development cycle at Facebook with the main beneficiaries being the end users who are getting an improved service. Whatever way you look at it and despite the fact that Facebook were working on some of this stuff before anyway you can’t but be impressed at the staggering response to the launch of Google + by Facebook…

Interesting posts from your liked pages can fall to the bottom and are often ignored, even though the content might be good. NewsMix takes your liked pages, whether they are news-oriented or not, and forms them into your own curated magazine within Facebook.
