The Social Web: People Don't Share Facts, People Share Feelings

The Social Web: People Don't Share Facts, People Share Feelings | Techy Stuff | Scoop.it

I selected this piece by Kathi Kruse because I agree with what she's saying and I'm experiencing this myself everyday.

 

Intro:

 

"There's a major shift on the web and  a big change on social networks in how people spend their time.

 

**They're spending less time interacting with facts and more time communicating with people.

 

**this fundamental re-architecture of the web is going to affect almost all businesses, because almost all businesses revolve around people"

 

Excerpt:

 

"The new web means spending less time interacting with facts & more time communicating with people".

 

Here are some highlights that caught my attention:

 

**Whether it’s sharing a post on Social Media or sharing their experience in real life, people forward their “feelings” to their network, online or offline.

 

**Content that triggers arousing emotions drives that behavior

 

**Google unveiled the "Knowledge Graph" in May and called it the "First Sep in Next Generation Search"

 

**Google wants users to spend less tinme searching and more time interacting with their network

 

**What this neans for dealers is you must build your store's knowledge footprint.

 

**It's important how Google knows you. It's important how your customers/audience knows you

 

**Facts are no longer relevant unless they're perceived as coming from a trustworthy source.

 

**Facts about your business married with passion and personal experience equaols trust in your brand

 

This article reminds me of a great Ted Talk by Simon Sinek - People Don't Buy What You Do, They Buy Why You do it

dropcanvas - instant drag and drop sharing

dropcanvas - instant drag and drop sharing | Techy Stuff | Scoop.it

upload files to a canvas and share it with anyone – no account needed. Start by dragging a file or several files onto the canvas to upload them. Once all the files are uploaded, a unique link will be generated for the canvas you’ve just created. You can give this link to anyone or share it via email, Facebook, Twitter or Reddit. The person receiving the link has access to the canvas, can preview the files if they’re images, download them, rename them, remove them and upload more files to this canvas.A canvas is limited to 5GB, but you can create as many as you wish, so there is no actual limit to the amount of files you can store and share this way. You can create a Dropcanvas account for better management options of your canvases.
