Pinterest Launches Curated Newsletters | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Pinterest has rolled out a newsletter that emails users curated content.

 

From Mashable: "Users on Pinterest usually have to seek interesting content for themselves, but a new feature quietly rolled out today drives them to even more personalized content.


...many users are sure to appreciate Pinterest’s new weekly email newsletter, making it easier to find even more great pins and helping them keep tabs on how their own pins are doing.


Mimicking the website’s pinboard style, each pin or board in the email is linked to the website, but users are unable to re-pin or like a post directly from the newsletter.

 

The newsletter lists a few popular boards, pins from friends that might be of interest and a useful feature for brands especially: your most popular pins of the week."

janlgordon's curator insight, March 14, 1:51 AM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ian Naylor because it explains how to develop a strong social media strategy that works for your business.

 

It's important to build solid objectives in order to be successful in social media marketing.

 

Common Social Media Mistakes

 

While you can create a social media account and begin tweeting or posting this will not guarantee solid growth. I agree that it takes focus and dedication to get real results.

 

Naylor explains what to avoid and how to properly grow your social brand.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Avoid spreading yourself too thin on too many networks. Focus on one and then move up from there. It takes time and dedication to develop your community.

 

  • Include the human touch in your accounts rather than just relying on automation or standard content. When people see the same messages they become bored quickly and move on.

 

  • It's important to include video as a part of your marketing strategy. People are especially drawn to this medium -- especially live stream broadcasts.

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited

Myspace’s new design actually has people excited | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

When advertising firm Specific Media bought Myspace – complete with investment from Justin Timberlake – it’s fair to say the most common reaction was a shrug. Dying brand, no chance of a comeback.

 

Yet if you thought of Myspace less as a falling social network, and more as (potentially) the largest music discovery site in the world, there was a glimmer of hope. Well, a video teaser of the new Myspace has fuelled that hope.

 

As one heavily-retweeted Twitter user put it: “Instagram + Pinterest + Windows 8 + Justin Timberlake = SexyBack”. It’s very beautiful, heavy on images, and light on clutter. Music remains a key ingredient too, with mixes, trending artists and songs, a radio option and a whole section spotlighting ‘This week’s Top Fans’.
