donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 11:03 AM

(From the article): Whether your social media marketing department is comprised of a single person or a staff of 10, you don’t have to figure out meaningful company content on your own—ask for help from other departments. Who knows the current projects and goals better than the people who work with them daily?

 

For example, customer service can share success stories or ways they meet customers’ needs. Sales can tell you what was particularly hot this season. Product development can give you updates on new releases.

 

Tap into those resources as much as possible. Not only will you make your job easier, you’ll be sure to share the most important information.

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School - Jonathan Wylie

How To Do Green Screen Photography on an iPad at School - Jonathan Wylie | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
There are lots of great learning opportunities when you use green screen effects in the classroom. I’ve written about some of those before, but almost all of them involved green screen movies. What about green screen photography? Is that possible on an iPad? It is, because there’s an app for that.

Recently I was reminded of the ability to do green screen photography when I read a blog post by Dr. Wesley Fryer. He did a green screen photo booth at the Fall Festival of the school he works at in Oklahoma. Great idea. So how do you do it? It all starts with the Green Screen app by DoInk. The rest is easy! Here’s how it works.

The Complete Beginner's Guide to Social Media Benchmarks

The Complete Beginner's Guide to Social Media Benchmarks | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

If I were to tell you that a recent tweet of mine received 20 clicks, what would you think?



Maybe 20 clicks sounds like a lot based on what you’ve found for your own accounts. Maybe 20 clicks sounds rather lean, considering what you know about clickthrough rates of big brands or your most successful posts.


Checking out the raw numbers of your social media stats, free of context, makes it quite hard to draw any concrete conclusions.

Take your time, choose a niche and stick to it. Nothing can beat a website that people come back to again and again to be entertained, educated and informed.
