Twitter's IPO Is More Proof That Tech Is In A Massive Bubble

Twitter's IPO Is More Proof That Tech Is In A Massive Bubble | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Twitter's frothy IPO should end all doubts about Tech Bubble 2.0's existence.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

Is the successful Twitter IPO proof of a massive tech bubble looming... which could leave investors losing their shirts... or just a natural evolution of these social media giants? No one is denying that the sites have value but given the valuation formulas being used there is definitely some reason for concern at the pricing.

Twitter Now Fills Your Feed With Photos

Twitter Now Fills Your Feed With Photos | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
As of Tuesday, Twitter is making your photos and videos show up in your stream by default -- making the service look a lot more like Facebook.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

Did twitter really need to increase multimedia by adding photo display? Does this make twitter less unique and more like everyone else? Or is this the coolest thing since sliced bread? One thing's for sure... image marketing is here to stay!

Hootlet Is No Longer Just A Link-Sharing Extension - SocialTimes

Hootlet Is No Longer Just A Link-Sharing Extension - SocialTimes | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Hootlet, Hootsuite’s browser extension for Chrome, has just received some serious updates. Sharing web-content with your friends and followers is now easier and more convenient than it’s ever been.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

The Crome version of Hootlet has just gotten a LOT more powerful. I'd love to see the Firefox version catch up but FF restricts add-ons in certain ways for security and so that's not likely at this time.

Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

In many markets, writing clarity is a make-or-break requirement! Pay attention to the pointers Brian gives in this post.

Facebook Is No Longer The Most Popular Social Network For Teens

Facebook Is No Longer The Most Popular Social Network For Teens | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Twitter has overtaken Facebook as the social...
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

We repeatedly are seeing more and more teens indicate that they have "forgotten about" Facebook (though many are still raving fans). However, the debate still seems up in the air about which network teens are favoring today. It seems to me as though teens have not yet settled on their new "network of choice" and this may in part due to the quicker acquisition model and thus invasion by adults that we see today. Definitely something to keep an eye on as teens wander about and look for their new hub.

How To ID A Twitter Bot Account? It's All In The Timing, Study Says | Digital & Internet Marketing News | Scoop.it
Regardless of the content of tweets, it’s the timing of those tweets that can help distinguish bots on Twitter from actual individual and corporate accounts.
Kimberly Castleberry's insight:

It's always interesting to see what "footprints" automated bot accounts leave that regular accounts do not. These types of footprints can contribute to an increased risk of being flagged for spamming, etc. Is your twitter account human?
