News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories

News Discovery Tools: Slices for Twitter Organizes and Auto-Curates Your News Stream Into Categories | Strategy and Social Media | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Slices is a news discovery app that allows you to find the news that interest you by "slicing" the Twitter timeline into topic-specific categories, making it much easier to find what you are looking for.

 

From Pandodaily official review: "Slices offers 21 searchable categories – humor, technology, sports, and so on – that lead you to people and lists to follow. Included among those top-level categories is the “Live Events” option, which allows you to select an event – a football match, say, or a TV show – and follow Tweets from a curated list.

Also of note: "...it synchronizes between mobile devices and the Slices website (slices.me), which means it knows which Tweets you’ve already read, no matter where you access it from.

 

...The “Timeline Slicer” also outdoes Twitter’s Lists as a way to organize the people you follow into specific categories. They’re easier to set up and easier to access, ..."

Slices is available on iOS, Android and the Web.

Social Media & The Always Connected Consumer - What You Need to Know

Social Media & The Always Connected Consumer - What You Need to Know | Strategy and Social Media | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Brian Solis about what he refers to as Generation C - the "always connected" generation.  

 

There are a lot of relevant insights and suggestions in this article. I've pulled out some points that caught my attention:

 

Excerpt:

 

What is the future of social media? Do you think it will pull ahead of classical media?

 

**Social media has given birth to a different type of customer, the connected customer or otherwise what I refer to as Generation-C where “C” represents “connected.” Gen-C is not bound by age. They’re not defined by income or education.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

** They live the digital lifestyle and traverse across all demographics. These consumers do not surf the web like other customers. They don’t learn nor make decisions like that of their traditional counterparts.

 

**They live and breathe in social networks and rely on smartphones or tablets as their windows to the world.

 

**when you compare the size of the market for traditional consumers vs. Generation C, only one of the two segments is growing while the other is shrinking over time.

 

 

**If you had to invest in the future of your business to earn attention and ultimately relevance, the greatest ROI is tied to the connected customer

 

Here are some takeaways:

 

The goal is to have a process and a supporting system for recognizing opportunities and piloting them as they arise.

 

**The trick is to understand the difference between emerging and disruptive technology

 

**only focus on those that will deliver and not distract.

 

How can social media activity increase the revenues and profitability of a company?

 

**To activate social commerce requires that you define an experience around the transaction where the outcome is of course the sale

 

**the journey is in its own way engaging and fulfilling.

 

**You must define a click path from a social network to a destination that facilitates a transaction but is also in alignment with the expectations of a social consumer
