iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Social Networking With Facebook | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.

How to Attract More Clicks to Your Blog Posts: 11 Revealing Title Tests | Social Networking With Facebook | Scoop.it

Take a look at some blog post title A/B test results, and what the takeaways are for your own title brainstorms.

 

I recently wrote a post on how to use content discovery platforms to amplify your reach, in which I share tips on using these platforms to share your blog content on other relevant sites across the web. Having experimented with this over the past several months, I've been able to collect data on the clickthrough rates of different title variations for the same blog posts. (What a great way to do A/B testing on your blog post titles!)

 

So, let's dive into the insights from this data, and see how you can use it to construct your most clickable blog post titles yet....

The Power of Authors and Content for Link Building

The Power of Authors and Content for Link Building | Social Networking With Facebook | Scoop.it

Traditional guest blogging campaigns start by finding websites on which they'd like to post. To build better links, I'd suggest turning that around, and focusing first on finding the right authors and influencers

 

...What I propose (and what I've been doing for some time now) is that we approach this from a different angle. Try starting with authors.Influential authors and bloggers have the ability to not only write great content, but they have access to channels that they can distribute the content through. Additionally, these authors will often have lots of existing relationships with big industry publications that can be taken advantage of, giving you a competitive advantage.

 

Considering this, it makes much more sense to be building relationships with authors instead of webmasters, especially when it comes to scaling high-quality link building....

Study: How Big Brands Are Using Tumblr

Study: How Big Brands Are Using Tumblr | Social Networking With Facebook | Scoop.it

While Tumblr now has over 100 million blogs, it is still the most overlooked social media network for brands. Currently, only 31% of the top 100 brands have adopted a Tumblr account. Social media analytics and reporting platform Simply Measured performed a study showing just how these top brands were performing and some of the tactics employed.

 

Of these 31 companies tracked, 21 were active in the past 30-day period (July 5th through August 4th). This places Tumblr as the sixth most popular social network behind Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Instagram.

 

Of the 21 active brands on Tumblr, 13 post 3+ times a week, 7 post daily (7+) and 6 posted more than 10 times a week.  Of the top brands active on Tumblr the average number of posts per day was 0.7 posts, with an average “note per post” of 1,462. The shelf-life on Tumblr engagement is much higher than other traditional social networks with 29% of reblogs occurring after the initial 30-day period. Even more, only 36% of reblogs happen on that same day, and posts will see 51% of total reblogs within the first week....

As Google+ has over 300m active users (and growing), I am always keen to learn how I can use the platform more effectively. This week, I was very lucky to catch up with Google+ guru Martin Shervington in a Hangout before his talk at Social Media Marketing World. The downside of a Google Hangout was that I could see he was on the sunny West Coast of the US while I was sitting in the dark in London, but on the positive side I learned a huge amount about how to maximise my use of Google+.

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private

9 Tips For Keeping Your Internet Use Private | Social Networking With Facebook | Scoop.it

Many people are concerned about online privacy. And, conversely, many more are not, freely sharing any and everything on their favorite social networks, paying little attention to their mobile app settings, and happily letting Google track each keyword that they search.

It’s easy to get paranoid about all this stuff, but it does pay to be a little careful when using the internet, particularly when it comes to your personal safety. And while Twitter holds pride of place as one of the safest social networks, by taking the time to educate yourself on the security and privacy settings within your profile, being mindful of which third-party apps you allow access to your account and ensuring that you aren’t making it easy for burglars by constantly telling the world when you’re not at home, you can rest assured that you’re doing everything you can to keep your presence safe on Twitter.
