5 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain | IFLScience

5 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain | IFLScience | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
The persistence of social media is certainly changing how things are done. In a matter of minutes, you can wish an old friend happy birthday on Facebook, find a recipe for dinner on Pinterest, watch a how-to project on YouTube, and get up to the minute updates on events from Twitter. But social media isn’t just changing how we act; it’s actually changing our brains as well.

 Here are a few highlights:

 

The issue of online consumers


"Over the next year, a leading business challenge will be to integrate new generations.

 

To fully understand the new paradigms of online consumers, we must stop compartmentalizing generations in silos, and instead take a more comprehensive view of the phenomenon, and look more toward the new generation of responsible consumers.

 

This generation of active and trendy consumers, seniors and baby boomers, generations X, Y and Z, that generation is now called Generation C.

 

Today, to stand out from the clutter of content and information that flows through social networks, marketing efforts must now be more targeted and focused on the experience and satisfaction of the customer

I am not a huge fan of 'fill in the blanks' because I haven't seen many done that were not cheap attempts to get comments. I can see value if they are done wisely though in a way that adds value to the community.

Mobile Tribes!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!

EDCI397 emphasizes the need for teachers to develop their PLN, and this blog post demonstrates the positive impact these connections can have on the classroom as a whole. Teachers who become connected through social media, such as Twitter or Pinterest, can gain the tools they need to better engage their students. Although I was initially reluctant to use Twitter and other social media as an educational tool, the collaborative opportunities and the chance to help students and their parents connect with the classroom and the world around them made me realize how essential the use of social media in the classroom can be.

Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It

Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it


This is a great piece by Heidi Cohen on why your marketing needs content curation and 12 attributes of a successful curation strategy.  This is one of the best articles I've seen on this topic in a very long time.


As I said, I've seen many pieces on curation but if you're like me, everytime I read about this, I always find something new or am reminded of ways I can polish what I'm doing.


Here are some of the highlights.........


Intro:


Why Your Marketing Needs Content Curation


At its core, content curation is like a great editor or blogger who brings his unique taste and understanding of his target audience to his selection of the best content for his readers.


**He provides context for the content so that it's more than a collection of information


3 Reasons your content marketing strategy needs content curation:


1. Offering your audience a combination of original and third party content provides a branded context for your work


2. Curating other people's content positions you and/or your organization as a tastemaker in your field


3. Creating sufficient content is a marketing and business challenge


12 Attributes of a successful content curation strategy:


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


 *Has defined measurable goals


As part of your content marketing strategy and by extension

your marketing plan, content curation needs objectives that

are associated with your business.


**Targets a specific audience


. *Content curation like other forms of content marketing requires

understanding your readers' marketing persona


** Involves a community


*As with any social media or content marketing, your

audience should be at the heart of your content efforts.


**Clay Shirky says it best:


"Curation comes up when people

realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also

about synchronizing a community"

How to Maximize the Reach of Your Posts on Social Networks

How to Maximize the Reach of Your Posts on Social Networks | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

This article and infographic was posted by Ted Nguyen for his blog.

 

Intro:

 

One of the most pressing questions whether you're new to social media or a social media maven is: What's the best way to post information or share content to optimize your reach


Compendium, a content marketing firm conducted a study of more than 200 companies to determine how social media professionals may optimize their engagement with both business-to-business-to-consumer conversations.


What they found is consistent with what Ted Nguyen has experienced and he has demonstrated that he clearly knows what he's doing

Here are some highlights:

 

"My experience in sharing more than 21,000 tweets and Facebook posts to my more than 82,000 Twitter followers and Facebook friends is consistent with the study’s findings"

.

**I recommend the hours between 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Pacific Time) or 1 to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) are the best times for Twitter and Facebook to optimize social engagement engagement.

 

**I find that tweets shared earlier in the week do better than those sent later in the week. I also have discovered that Facebook posts do best Wednesday early afternoon.

 

**if you look at Ted's social shares, they run around the clock. he tries his best to engage with people in real time or near real time.
