Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State

Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Excerpted from review article on ReadWriteWeb:

"As streams of information become more popular on the Web, we need better ways to consume and manage them. Apps that allow you to aggregate content from different sources - Twitter, Facebook, blogs, news websites and more - may become very popular: State is trying it.

 

State is currently in private beta. At first glance, it looks part FriendFeed, part TweetDeck, part iGoogle, and part something wholly new.

 

Co-founder Joshua Lewis said:

"what the future of the web looks like when you replace static content with streams of data.

...State is "a general purpose tool to manipulate, filter and publish streams of data."

 

How State Works:

You can add streams of content from up to four services (so far): Twitter, App.net, Instagram and Dropbox. This is the part that reminds me of a start page, like early Netvibes or iGoogle, because you end up with panels of content across the web page. You can also connect to Instapaper, enabling you to save content for later reading.

 

Then, like TweetDeck, you're able to view various aspects of the stream. For Twitter, you can select to view content by home timeline, mentions, user, place, tag, search and list. The same principle applies to content from App.net and Instagram.

 

While State only connects to five services so far, you can imagine it eventually hooking into many more.

 

One feature I really like in State is the ability to "follow" a page of streams that someone else has created.

Each page - or "workspace" to use the service's parlance - is made up of many different streams of content.

There is limited ability to filter - for example, you can select to view only images from a stream. But I imagine more filtering options will be added over time.

 

By default your pages are private, but you can choose to share or make them public..."

Pino your title is pretty unambiguous to me: "Curate, Filter And Publish Your Streams Of Information With State". I read "curate" as the first word.
You can check yourself.

Hello Robin,
Co-founder Joshua Lewis said:
....State is "a general purpose tool to manipulate, filter and publish streams of data."
Manipulate is not similar to curate?
Robin Good's comment, August 29, 2012 3:52 AM
Pino: Manipulation has nothing to do with curation.

I think that we should not mislead readers or sell a tool for what it is not. Credibility is everything in this realm.

Re Joshua Lewis: if he wanted to say "curate" he would have. But he didn't. The choice to put "Curate" as the opening word in the title above was yours, not his.

If it was my post, I'd revise the title as I wouldn't want to lose any of the trust I have earned from those who read me. To be credible for me is much more important than being first, or popular.

My two cents. :-)

(Best of all would be for you to test it and to write for us what it does and whether you consider that curation or not). :-)

My two cents.

What Panda, Penguin and Social Media Really Mean for Brands

What Panda, Penguin and Social Media Really Mean for Brands | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

"An article recently published on Fast Company has caused a bit of a stir in the content marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) communities. Written by Veronica Fielding, CEO of Digital Brand Expressions, it explains how the recent Panda and Penguin Google algorithm updates mean that social engagement rather than search engine trickery yields top results.

 

Social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn, also plays a role in the updated algorithms but not in the exact manner Fielding described in her Fast Company article.

First, some social-media channels weigh far more than others, mainly because of technical barriers that search crawlers see when indexing them. The weight of these channels are based on how much information Google can crawl without being stonewalled by the social channels.

 

So, Let’s take a look at what Panda, Penguin and social media really mean for brands".

I often get asked who are the true “thought leaders” in social media. In a world of voluminous tweets and blog posts, with many contributors simply compiling lists of other’s content or rehashing of other’s ideas, it really is hard to decipher who are those that are not only recognized by their peers but also have “innovative” ideas with regards to various aspects of social media.

4 Critical Phases of Email Marketing Automation (infographic) | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

A properly implemented email marketing campaign works much like a well-oiled machine. It’s effective, only requires a moderate amount of maintenance and supervision and produces results with little actual effort from its operators beyond its initial setup. And what’s more, it’s not this long, drawn out, manual experience each and every time you want to send out an individual mailing. You just set things up and it just hits the ground running, pretty much on its own.

 

What? That’s not been your experience? You’re doing what? Oh! Perhaps you haven’t been getting the most out of your email marketing machine. Perhaps you haven’t been apprised of the benefits of automation.

Pinterest is practically a newcomer in the social media landscape but it has so caught the fancy of millions of netizens since its launch in 2010 that it is now officially the third largest social network in the United States, behind only Facebook and Twitter (Experian Hitwise, March 2012). According to Comscore.com, “Pinterest buyers spend more money, more often, and on more items than any of the other Top 5 social media sites,” and according to Hitwise data, “Pinterest drove more referral traffic to retailers than LinkedIn, YouTube, and Google+.”

3 Types of Facebook Marketing Content Mistakes to Avoid

3 Types of Facebook Marketing Content Mistakes to Avoid | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Social Media marketing often requires posting content to a Facebook page and there are many ways to do this. If you do it the wrong way and include content that doesn't engage then you will reduce the effectiveness of your social media marketing.

 

It’s been almost a year when I started to do social media marketing. Back during the day, I thought my job would be mainly posting on a client’s Facebook page, filling it up with pictures and short by funny one-liners that would give the brand a voice.


But while the posts I made on my client pages were short and sometimes flimsy, I realized that the process of creating content for social media use is also difficult; at times I even felt that they were more challenging to do as compared to writing blog posts.

Twitter rewrites the script for political conventions - USA TODAY

Twitter rewrites the script for political conventions - USA TODAY | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Twitter was just taking root when the two political parties convened four years ago.

 

Modern political conventions long ago lost the drama of actually choosing a presidential nominee. Instead, they are tightly scripted, expertly staged and timed to the minute to hammer home the message of the party and its candidate.

 

So what would be the most anarchic, chaotic thing that could occur in Tampa and Charlotte, where the Republicans and Democrats are preparing to gather? How about equipping everyone — delegates, elected officials, surrogates, media drones and opposition operatives — with a way to comment very publicly on anything at any time, whether it conforms to the talking points or not?
