Why Big Data & Content Marketing Are A Match Made In Heaven | Enlightened Entrepreneur Blog

Why Big Data & Content Marketing Are A Match Made In Heaven | Enlightened Entrepreneur Blog | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Big data used to be viewed as something far removed from content marketing. Brands can take their content marketing efforts to new heights with big data.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Big data and content marketing are truly a match made in heaven. Companies can learn to tie their advertising dollars to developing campaigns that drive conversions through social media and cross-promotional activities. Companies can tie their engagement efforts to the right conversations that interest their customers at the right intervals. Customers can be informed immediately of availability, sales and geo-specific promotions available in their respective regions.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Een computervirus dat zich door de lucht verspreidt als ware het een griepje: wetenschappers hebben de eerste malware ontwikkeld dat zich verplaatst van wifi-access point naar access point, zonder tussenkomst van clients.

 

Het virus, Chameleon, is ontwikkeld in het laboratorium van de Universiteit van Liverpool en in een simulatie getest in Belfast en Londen. Op zijn max kan het virus in drie jaar tijd 70 procent van alle wifi-access points in Londen besmetten, over de laatste 30 procent doet hij er 3,7 jaar over.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

People with solar panels on their house will receive solar renewable energy certificates from their energy company in return for feeding a megawatt-hour of electricity back into the grid. These certificates are already traded for cash, but present one to SolarCoin's organisers and you'll receive one coin – they expect to start distribution in a matter of weeks.

A handy guide to optimize your strategy on 11 social media sites (Infographic) | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

When it comes to your social media strategy, you should never put all your eggs in the Facebook’s basket. A lot of your audience may be there, but recent events have proven that the social network may not be a viable option for businesses with small wallets.

Instead, why not take advantage of Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and / or Pinterest? Tumblr, SlideShare, and Instagram also offer some great perks.

Fox-IT gaat hackers trainen voor het Nederlandse leger. De hackermacht moet vijanden digitaal aanvallen.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

 Fox-IT gaat hackers trainen voor het Nederlandse leger. De hackermacht moet vijanden digitaal aanvallen.

 

"Een hacker plus een modem veroorzaakt bijna evenveel schade en verlies bij de vijand, als tijdens een oorlog", zo citeerde generaal Middendorp gisteren een Chinees boek over oorlogsvoering. Middendorp sprak tijdens het Defensie Cyber symposium in Breda.

Daarbij maakte hij bekend dat het Nederlandse leger ook aanvallende cyberactiviteiten gaat inzetten tijdens oorlogshandelingen. De Volkskrant gaat daar vandaag verder op in: in eerste instantie worden 15 hackers getraind door Fox-IT in Delft, waar ze een opleiding van een jaar krijgen.

The personal information that friends share on social media websites is being used by a growing number of financial institutions to build a credit profile for potential borrowers, in addition to the official credit report.

81% of big firms now have a Chief Marketing Technologist

81% of big firms now have a Chief Marketing Technologist | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

Looking at the latest marketing technology landscape, you might ask yourself, “How the heck do marketers make sense of all of this?” Increasingly, the answer is: they have a chief marketing technologist.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

A terrific new research report by Laura McLellan of Gartner, How the Presence of a Chief Marketing Technologist Impacts Marketing, confirms that this senior hybrid role — “part strategist, part creative and part technologist” and “broadly the equivalent of a CTO and a CIO dedicated to marketing”— is growing in popularity.

Within large companies — more than $500 million in annual revenue — 81% of them now have a chief marketing technologist role, up from 71% just a year ago. Another 8% expect to add that role within the next 24 months.

11 Times Everyone on Facebook Changed Their Profile Pictures

11 Times Everyone on Facebook Changed Their Profile Pictures | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
11 trends, movements and causes that inspired people to change their Facebook profile pictures in support or protest.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

The Facebook profile picture is an art form. It's the first thing people look at when scrolling through your account. Essentially, it tells people whether you're artsy/brainy/happy/boring, etc.

 

However, sometimes your Facebook profile picture stands for a statement in itself. Over the years, users have changed their profile pictures to support various movements or causes. Sometimes dubbed "slacktivism" or "pictivism," it's an easy way to communicate things you believe in, support or even oppose.

Screenshots van WhatsApp-versie met voip-functie duiken op | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Er zijn screenshots opgedoken van een WhatsApp-versie voor iOS waarmee via voip gebeld kan worden met andere gebruikers van de chatapplicatie. Zowel via het mobiele netwerk van de provider als via wifi kan zo gebeld worden.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

De screenshots van een nieuwe iOS-versie van WhatsApp zijn gepubliceerd door iPhoneItalia. Uit de afbeeldingen is op te maken dat de populaire chatapplicatie voip-functionaliteit krijgt. Hierdoor kunnen gebruikers kosteloos met elkaar bellen, zowel via wifi als 3g/4g-netwerken, waarbij via mobiel internet wel kosten voor data verschuldigd kunnen zijn. Ook zijn enkele knoppen toegevoegd, zoals een knop op het virtuele toetsenbord om snel een foto te kunnen maken en deze vervolgens te verzenden.

Assange Says NSA Holds The Power In The Obama Administration | TechCrunch | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange gave a rare talk via video at annual tech mega-conference SXSW.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange gave a rare talk via video at annual tech mega-conference SXSW, where he came out swinging not only at President Obama but also Google and Facebook. Assange claimed that in the Obama administration, the intelligence agencies “wear the pants” and he called out Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as part of “an unprecedented theft of wealth.”

Since the global uproar over the National Security Agency’s spying practices were exposed last summer, there have been no major shakeups, Assange claimed. When a government wants actual reform, “someone is fired, someone is forced to resign, someone is prosecuted,” he argued.

De belastingdienst waarschuwt voor een nieuwe phishinggolf. De afzender 'noreply@belastingdienst.nl', lijkt authentiek maar is gespoofed. In de mail, waarvan de fiscus helaas geen screenshot publiceert, wordt gevraagd om "een nieuw bericht in uw berichtenbox te openen."

Marketo is the most user-friendly. LoopFuse is the most recommended by current users. Act-On is often most often chosen by non-tech SMBs.

Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

“There’s tremendous growth, tremendous opportunity, and tremendous upheaval in this market,” report author Wendy Schuchart says. “Even after years of 50 percent industry growth, only about three percent of non-tech companies have adopted marketing automation to date. Which means there’s also a lot of uncertainty for companies about how to proceed.”

CBP dreigt met dwangsom tegen WhatsApp om privacyschending

CBP dreigt met dwangsom tegen WhatsApp om privacyschending | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Het College Bescherming Persoonsgegevens (CBP) dreigt chatdienst WhatsApp een dwangsom op te leggen omdat het de privacy van niet-whatsappers zou schaden. Dat bevestigt het college aan nrc.nl. Of het CBP de dwangsom kan innen is afwachten.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

 

Bij de installatie van de app wordt gebruikers gevraagd om WhatsApp toegang te geven tot hun adresboek. Vervolgens bewaart de chatdienst deze gegevens op zijn servers. Daar zitten ook telefoonnummers bij van contactpersonen die geen WhatsApp gebruiken. En dat mag niet volgens het Nederlandse recht, aldus het CBP. De dienst zou deze gegevens nodig hebben voor het geval gebruikers alsnog gebruik gaan maken van WhatsApp, schrijft de Volkskrant.

Facebook buys WhatsApp: Mark Zuckerberg explains why.

Facebook buys WhatsApp: Mark Zuckerberg explains why. | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has released a statement explaining why his company has paid $19bn for mesaging service WhatsApp. Here is the release in full.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

WhatsApp is a simple, fast and reliable mobile messaging service that is used by over 450m people on every major mobile platform. More than 1m people sign up for WhatsApp every day and it is on its way to connecting 1bn people. More and more people rely on WhatsApp to communicate with all of their contacts every day.

WhatsApp will continue to operate independently within Facebook. The product roadmap will remain unchanged and the team is going to stay in Mountain View. Over the next few years, we're going to work hard to help WhatsApp grow and connect the whole world. We also expect that WhatsApp will add to our efforts forInternet.org, our partnership to make basic internet services affordable for everyone.

Facebook Engagement Drops: Effect on Nonprofits | Social Media Today

Facebook Engagement Drops: Effect on Nonprofits | Social Media Today | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Organic reach is dropping on Facebook. But are promoted posts and paid advertising also ineffective?
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

2014 has been off to a good start for Facebook so far. Last week, it was announced that founder Mark Zuckerberg was the top philanthropist in 2013, having donated almost $1 billion. Their fourth-quarter earnings beat expectations, with revenue increasing from $1.59 billion to $2.59 billion. They even shook off a Princeton study that estimated usage would drop by 80% by 2017.

However, users (specifically brand marketers) are becoming increasingly vocal about the frustration they’re experiencing. Report after report shows that organic post visibility is dropping precipitously, forcing marketers to invest in paid advertisements and promoted posts. This is problematic for nonprofits and associations, whose budgets are already tight.

Now it seems that even those promoted posts may not be reaching the intended audience. A post from video blogger Derek Muller of Veritasium is making the rounds on social media with a damning study on Facebook’s advertising model. It’s well worth the 9 minute playtime:

Tracking the Growth of Social Media [#Infographic]

Tracking the Growth of Social Media [#Infographic] | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
In the past five years social media has grown exponentially. Though both Facebook and Google+ have more than a billion registered users, Twitter beats out both networks in terms of growth, with a 44% increase in its user base from 2012 to 2013.
Laurens ten Hagen's insight:

 

Google+'s high numbers come in part from Google integrating one login across multiple services, including Google+ and Gmail. This approach may impact growth numbers even more in the future. Take the new YouTube comments powered by Google+ for example. While YouTube is not featured as a social network in this infographic, its usage numbers are noteworthy; the site states that it sees 1 billion unique visitors each month. It remains to be seen if and how Google+ comments on YouTube will influence the usage stats of Google+.
