Are You a Facebook Power User? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are You a Facebook Power User? [INFOGRAPHIC] | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
See whether you qualify to hold the grand title: Facebook power user extraordinaire.

 

Are you among the 20-30% of the Facebook population that’s considered power users? If you’ve logged in to the social network already today, there’s a good chance you are one of the addicted elite.

 

This infographic, created by DemandForce, details what it means to be a Facebook power user. For starters, you likely kick butt at basic F-book activities, like sending friend requests, commenting and pressing the “Like” button. Sounds pretty basic, right?

 

On the contrary, only 5% of users excel in four or more of the core Facebook actions. Still convinced you’re at the top?

 

As a power user, you also “like” content an average of 14 times per month, as well as share nine status updates and contribute 21 comments in that same time period. Whew, sounds like a lot of work to us.

So, treat this infographic as a little quiz, and see whether you qualify to hold the grand title: Facebook power user extraordinaire.

7 Social Networking Apps for When Facebook Jumps the Shark

7 Social Networking Apps for When Facebook Jumps the Shark | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
According to a recent poll by the Associated Press and CNBC, 46 percent of respondents think Facebook will “fade away as new things come along.” That’s an ominous data point for a company whose IPO dominated the news cycle last week, and claims some 900 million worldwide users.

 

Facebook seems to be infiltrating every facet of our lives. “Like” buttons appear on every website. “Like us on Facebook!” shouts at us during TV commercials. And more and more apps rely on Facebook to simply log in. It’s starting to feel more than a little oppressive — it’s like we’re living in a blue-and-white-painted jail cell.

And all this IPO madness is just foul icing on the cake.

So where do you turn when the world’s been stricken with Facebook fever? We rounded up seven apps that could satisfy your social networking needs should Facebook go down the tubes — or you just can’t take it anymore.

Rabobank en ABN AMRO bevestigen lancering iDEAL mobiel | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it

Webwinkels moeten zich voorbereiden op de toestroom van nieuwe klanten via mobiel internet. Rabobank en ABN AMRO hebben tijdens Mobile Convention Amsterdam bevestigd dat ze komende zomer de mobiele versie van iDEAL gaan aanbieden.

“Dan staan er in een keer miljoenen kopers voor de deur,” zegt David Jan Janse, mobielspecialist bij Rabobank, na een paneldiscussie met collega’s van ING en ABN AMRO over bankieren tijdens Mobile Convention Amsterdam. ING was een laatbloeier op de mobiele markt, maar inmiddels ontwikkelt de bank zich snel op dit gebied. ING was in december 2011 de eerste om iDEAL mobiel te introduceren.

Alibaba Buys Back 20% Stake From Yahoo for $7.1 Billion

Alibaba Buys Back 20% Stake From Yahoo for $7.1 Billion | ten Hagen on Social Media | Scoop.it
Chinese e-commerce site Alibaba has bought half of Yahoo’s stake in the company — 20% of Alibaba’s shares — back from Yahoo for $7.1 billion.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, Yahoo will sell half its stake in Alibaba for at least $6.3 billion in cash and up to $800 million in new Alibaba preferred stock.

Yahoo had bought a 40% in Alibaba for about $1 billion in 2005. Back then Yahoo was still one of the most successful internet companies around, but somewhere around that time Yahoo’s revenue stopped growing, and the company never managed to get back on the right track.

On the other hand, Alibaba has been doing great, with $2.34 billion in revenue in the year ended Sept. 30 and a projected 42% growth this year. The success of Facebook’s initial public offering probably encouraged Alibaba to go public, and the stock buyback is a step towards that goal.
