53% of Social Media Is Tech, Travel and Food [Infographic] | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

As it turns out, social media and search go hand-in-hand...

 

From Facebook and Twitter, to Pinterest and MySpace (yes, it still exists), social media users are often on the search for… something.

For marketers, understanding the searches that lead to improved engagement is critical.

To that end, Azntaiji Multimedia and SocialRadius have produced a new infographic highlighting exactly what so many of us are searching for.

Helpful in knowing which clients will need you to pull content out of thin air for them >

Not a surprise at all that the top 5 searched topics socially are (1) Technology / Scoial Media, (2) Fitness, Health, & Sports, (3) Music, (4) F&B, & (5) Travel... I think that this one dropped Movies / Cinema for sure

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

When you’re a brand establishing yourself on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, in the very early days you’re usually less concerned about who is following you and more about how many...

It’s superficial, of course, but large numbers of followers on Twitter and Likes on your Facebook Page do have provide a level of social proof that makes you more attractive to new followers, and new Likes – when someone sees that you’re already popular, they’re far more likely to make the leap and get on board themselves.

But for businesses looking to maximize the ROI of their social media strategy, how many is always far, far less important than who. Pretty soon you realise that a big number is meaningless unless it’s actually converting into brand awareness, website footfall and sales – so who should you be looking to attract?

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them.

This infographic takes a look at the five types of social follower that every business needs...

"Google Earth was one of the very first pieces of software that I began to create educational resources with. As I put it in one of my first ever blog posts 5 years ago: ”This app won me over straight away.” The engaging environment really struck a chord with me and I remember fondly my first forays into using it to support learning. It has developed so much over the years...."

This is definitely a major role for a community manager which is why I love learning about these two topics: community management and curation.  They are inseparable.  I think this is what makes the difference between a community that has members and a community that has ACTIVE members, which, of course, is the POINT!  Enjoy!

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context"

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context" | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it
Robin Good: Twylah is a web service which "auto-curates" your Twitter stream by generating a full web site which auto-organizes and visualizes your tweeted content around a set of specific topics.

 

Here is a real-world example of my own tweet-stream "auto-curated" by Twilah: http://www.twylah.com/robingood 

Impressive. Key Features:

 

- Harnesses the SEO power of all your tweets by grouping them into relevant topics

 

- Creates a more engaging space for your followers and fans 

 

- Provides a high-value content platform on auto-pilot for any author

 

- Facilitates subscriptions to your Twitter channel

 

- Integrates a PowerTweet function which not only allows to Tweet from any web page, but it "auto-creates" a  thematic web page just-in-time around your very tweet topic.

 

(Now that Twylah has kicked out a few bugs that were preventing Scoop.it based curators like me to extract the best from this new service, I am very impressed by what I see.)


This is one of the best examples of how much MORE value can be extracted by "curating", organizing and "presenting" appropriately what IS ALREADY out there. 

 

Check some of Twylah "featured" pages here: http://www.twylah.com/featured 

 

If you want to drive engagement beyond the single tweet, and show others what you cover and are all about, at-a-glance, I am hard-pressed in finding something better than Twylah.


If you use Twitter and you share lots of valuable news across different topics, I strongly suggest you request an invite to Twylah right now: http://www.twylah.com/

Wow Robin - really cool and I appreciate you exposing twylah to me! I've already applied. Should be a great way to engage people. Are you somehow now sending people to twylah instead of your twitter home page?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2012 8:48 AM
Hey Mitch, first my compliments to your great channel. Great stuff!

Yeah, Twylah looks good. I'm glad you have applied, with your content it is going to be great as well.

If you tweet with the Twylah "Power Tweet" function your readers are automatically taken to your Twylah property, but otherwise yes, I am going to see what are all of the best ways to take them there.
planetMitch's comment, January 14, 2012 9:16 AM
Thanks Robin, I'm impressed by your channel as well, your success is one of the main reasons why I've ended up loving scoop.it and am now a 'business' user and have integrated it into my own domain now.

I've been doing 'curation' with my blog for 3 years, but now scoop.it has helped me solve a problem that I haven't been able to deal with - and that is a way to share news that doesn't 'qualify' for me to spend time writing a full blog post about.

The 'power tweet' is a brilliant idea and one I can see using a lot - maybe too much.

I might like to see twylah expand to do one thing scoop does well - and that's to let me post the power tweet to facebook, g+ etc.

Thanks again for exposing me to so many great ideas!

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site

The Most Effective Tools To Enrich Reader Engagement On Your Site | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

What do we mean when talking about reader engagement? Well, in terms of blogging the first things that come to mind are comments, sharing, questions, conversion rates. To sum up we could compare reader engagement with building a community. A community where readers care about each other, where action doesn’t stop after reading the final paragraph and where exciting discussions are born. Unfortunately, good content and neat design aren’t the only factors which affect reader engagement. You need to learn to focus readers attention and start a conversation. Developing an engagement is a win-win situation. Your visitors will want to explore more and join the conversation but you, as the publisher, will be looking at higher conversion rates.

 

Gamification is a whole branch in reader engagement which brings together game mechanics and marketing to create engagement and solve problems. What do we understand with game mechanics from a web standpoint? Well, that doesn’t necessarily has to be the traditional online games as we are used to seeing them...

Does outbrain really increase reader engagement? In most of the sites i hv seen Outbrain (taboolaa and similar others), they show quite unrelated and random stuff!
