What Extremely Successful People Were Doing At Age 25

What Extremely Successful People Were Doing At Age 25 | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

Some people know what they want to do from an early age and focus on it relentlessly.

 

Others reinvent themselves, changing careers and industries until they find something that works.

Alessandro Rea's insight:

Billionaire Mark Cuban struggled when he first started, writing in “How To Win At The Sport Of Business“ that “when I got to Dallas, I was struggling — sleeping on the floor with six guys in a three-bedroom apartment.”

As a reminder that the path to success is not always linear, we’ve highlighted what Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, and 17 other fascinating and successful people were doing at age 25.

How To Tweet Photos So You’ll Get The Most Retweets

How To Tweet Photos So You’ll Get The Most Retweets | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

HubSpot’s “Social Media Scientist” Dan Zarrella recently collected a dataset of more than 400,000 randomly selected tweets and calculated the number of times each tweet received a native (“new”, as opposed to manual RT) retweet in order to determine the most successful method by which users can tweet photos.

Alessandro Rea's insight:

There are many popular ways to share photos on Twitter, but only one will guarantee you the most retweets.

Zarrella compared four of the most popular ways to send images to Twitter: Facebook image links, Instagram, Twitpic and Twitter’s own, native image uploading service (seen in tweets as pic.Twitter.com).

Pinterest, Twitter Chasing Facebook For Share Of Social Visits To Retail Websites [STUDY] - AllTwitter

Pinterest, Twitter Chasing Facebook For Share Of Social Visits To Retail Websites [STUDY] - AllTwitter | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

Adobe has released its first annual Social Media Intelligence report, which examines paid, earned and owned social media trends across the top platforms.

The study has a wealth of data, but particularly of note for brand marketers is how the main channels divvy up the share of referral traffic to retail websites. As you would imagine, Facebook still dominates overall in percentage of visitors, but its position is on the decline. And it’s Pinterest and Twitter that are gobbling up the spoils.

Okay, so there’s still a lot of food on the table. But while Facebook’s share of social referrals has fallen 20 percent year-on-year, Twitter has climbed a massive 258 percent, and Pinterest, which is second behind Facebook overall, has jumped 84 percent.

What your Facebook friends list reveals about your love life

What your Facebook friends list reveals about your love life | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

Facebook can isolate your spouse or partner based on your network of friends. In a fascinating paper to be published next year, Facebook social scientist Lars Backstrom and Cornell University professor Jon Kleinberg reveal just how much insight can be gleaned from the structure of a network, illustrating both the value of what the American security establishment reassures us is “just metadata” and revealing Facebook’s baroque privacy settings as the faith-based garments of the emperor’s new clothes.

5 Reasons Why Buffer Is The Most Successful Social Media Management Tool

5 Reasons Why Buffer Is The Most Successful Social Media Management Tool | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

There is an increasing trend towards using social media management tools that allow marketers to search, track, and analyze conversation on the web about their brand or other topics of interest. This can be useful in PR management and campaign tracking, allowing the user to measure return on investment, competitor-auditing, and general public engagement. Tools range from free, basic applications to subscription-based, more in-depth tools.

Alessandro Rea's insight:

There are thousands of articles already there talking about buffer features, even I wrote one of them about Buffer being an effective SMM tool. So this article is not about the features, its about what makes buffer so great, what are the reasons that buffer is one of the most successful social media management tools out there.

What are the best tools to measure social media influence?

What are the best tools to measure social media influence? | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

Everyone on social media is obsessed with influence. But how can you know for sure how influential you are? What does social media influence even mean – and how can you know when you’ve got it?

 
Alessandro Rea's insight:

Some people consider the number of followers, likes etc. as a good way to measure influence. But I honestly believe that numbers don’t mean a thing on social media unless they are backed up by other factors. Everyone can gather thousands of Twitter followers or Facebook Page likes. Many of them can be fake, bought or simply completely uninterested in your social updates or your opinions.

The truth is that the term is thrown around a lot, but even the most influential social media users have a hard time agreeing on an universal meaning for “social media influencer”. In my opinion, influence is all about engagementand how people are responding to your social media updates. Do you get lots of retweets and shares whenever you post a new update? Are people coming to you with questions and looking for your help? Are other social media users recommending you and your work?

Solayo transforme YouTube en un Deezer-like, gratuit

Solayo transforme YouTube en un Deezer-like, gratuit | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it
Ce n'est pas le premier outil du genre, mais c'est certainement l'un des mieux conçu. Tout juste sorti en version beta, Solayo est une application web qui permet de rechercher des morceaux de musique hébergés sur YouTube, Dailymotion et SoundCloud, pour les écouter à la demande dans une interface HTML proche de celle d'un Deezer ou Spotify. D'origine britannique, Solayo permet également d'écouter des radios thématiques (rock, pop, R&B, dance, house, techno...), de composer et de partager des playlists, le tout dans une interface rapide et dépouillée. Succès assuré. Reste à voir le sort que lui réservera Google, alors que la firme de Mountain View (qui a déjà Google Music) prévoit elle-même de proposer un concurrent à Deezer basé sur YouTube.
