Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook consider 'nuclear' blackout | ZDNet | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

"Internet giants are considering a ‘nuclear option’ against the SOPA bill. Should they press the button internationally?

The online war against SOPA is reaching new levels. In the aftermath of the Reddit ‘Boycott Go Daddy’ campaign, now a number of Internet giants are considering their own moves in the SOPA game.

Wikipedia was the first to consider a blackout of their services, in order to demonstrate what SOPA could potentially do to any website that allowed user-generated content. Now, a number of sites including Google, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon are considering coordinated downtime on their platforms.  ..."

Content Curation Will Be One Of The Biggest Trends In Content Marketing for 2012 | Entrepreneur

Content Curation Will Be One Of The Biggest Trends In Content Marketing for 2012 | Entrepreneur | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

Below are some of the expected trends this year about Content Marketing.

 

- Crowdsourcing for Content Creation:

It became a valid business model to tap into people's willingness to create content for free or for low pay in return for online exposure. Now, companies of all sizes are eager to try such crowdsourcing to generate content.

 

- Content Curation, Aggregation and Syndication:

Content curation also will be hot in 2012, but content aggregation and online syndication are losing some heat with the release of the Google Panda Farmer algorithm changes last year.

Unlike aggregation and syndication that simply republish links or content, human beings select what they consider the best content in their areas of expertise, share links to the original content and add their own commentary. It's such added value, along with convenience, that is giving content curation momentum.

 

- Brands as Media:

More companies are beginning to understand that social media sites and tools aren't the place for their usual marketing pitches. Instead, companies realize they need to think like publishers, not marketers, to connect their brands with online audiences.

 

- Content Marketing Integration:

Silo marketing is out in 2012, and complete marketing integration is in. There has never been a more pivotal year for companies to take off their blinders and fully mesh all aspects of their marketing--online and offline, traditional and social.

Save Your Content Online With This Web App: Hopper

Save Your Content Online With This Web App: Hopper | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of content we’re bombarded with on a daily basis.

You can always save links in a text document, and keep images and other files in folders, but your OS file system wasn’t built for bookmarking.

 

Hopper lets you save content such as texts, images and links by copying and pasting it (using Ctrl + V), or just by dragging it into the webpage. You can also drag-and-drop files from your desktop.

 

That will let you get the content back whenever you need it later on. Any device that can access the Internet will let you get it back again, right as if it were on your HD or ZIP drive.

 

Hopper has got the great plus of working without registration. Accounts can be created if you want to organize your data and have it tidied up.

 

Check out it here: http://www.gethopper.com/

Five tech industry predictions for 2012

Five tech industry predictions for 2012 | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

"The past year in technology was pretty wild.

The really big Internet IPO returned and the massive venture capital funding bubble inflated, which seems difficult considering that the venture capital industry is far smaller than it was three years ago. But look at some of the crazy valuations on revenue-less photo-sharing startups like Color and Path. And there is clearly another bubble inflating in the cloud computing sector, with every company that uses a distributed architecture now calling itself a “cloud company.” So what does 2012 have in store? Here are my predictions. ..."

#SocialMedia Tools #Oprah Style Favorite Things: Prepare To Scream Like a Girl | Social Media, Marketing and Promotion | Scoop.it

Social Media is evolving every day, or maybe even every minute of every day. It seems that new platforms are popping up all the time, so much so that it can actually be a tad overwhelming to say the least. I find that I am constantly tweaking the platforms that I use and honestly it has been an ongoing process. However I am so excited to say that I have found an amazing cocktail of social media tools recently that has really been working wonderfully for me.

 

Traditional Social Media allows an amazing avenue to share content. I consider it the vehicle to drive the content and can be a powerful thing if used properly. These channels are used to drive content based on particular demographics and I use each channel differently. The cocktail that I have compiled of traditional social media and the following channels has created the ultimate rocking social media tool kit for me!...
