Ray Dolby, Who Pioneered Recorded Sound, Dies : NPR

Ray Dolby, Who Pioneered Recorded Sound, Dies  : NPR | The Media Landscape | Scoop.it
Dolby's inventions helped remove the hiss from tapes and screen Star Wars in Dolby Stereo. He was 80 years old.
Randy King's insight:
He blinded me with science! Admittedly I am an audiophile and love great sound in the theatre, concerts, car, bar and home, but Dolby reinvented audio. His technology is part of our lives daily still to this day.

Facebook Tests Silent Auto-Play For User Videos In Mobile Feed, Foreshadowing Video Ads http://t.co/rnEzU9kdmk

Randy King's insight:

Noticed these popping up on other sites too. Beats the ones that autoplay with sound - 2 or 3 things going at once and you didn't click on anything. Chicago Tribune site does this all the time.

Social Influence Measurement Going Through Major Changes

Social Influence Measurement Going Through Major Changes | The Media Landscape | Scoop.it

This piece was posted in Adweek about the latest news on how companies like Klout and Kred are measuring social influence by delving deeper into an individual's ability to create awareness, drive people to action for a non profit cause, buy products, educate or empower others.  

 

As influence measurement evolves, individuals and businesses will be able to see a more accurate picture profile of any given user.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

Klout began pushing a major redesign oriented around a user's social resume featuring Moments says CEO, Joe Fernandez a user is more than their retweets, moments will be about what you say, it's like the hall of fame of content creation.”

 

Kred is also propping up the content that bolsters a user's score with Kred Story.

 

**Kred Story arrays a user's Twitter posts into a dashboard that appends the number of retweets a given post received.

 

**Users can then click on the post to see a selection of who retreeted it.

 

**In addition to using specific Twitter accounts, users can see Kred Stories tied to a hashtag.

 

**In those cases, the Kred Story presents popular posts that include the hashtag as well as the number of tweets and retweets featuring it.

 

Andrew Grill, CEO of Kred in addition to analyzing tweets in real time, which they have been doing since November 2008, Kred also has access to Facebook.

 

It will be interesting to watch this evolve for individuals and businesses to see who the real influencers are in different categories.

 

**Kred Story will not only see what people are saying about a given topic but also who are the most influential on that subject

 

Kred is eyeing Linkedin and Google+ as the next social networks to include the end of this year.

Google Algorithm Changes Benefit Directory Sites at the Expense of Local Businesses | ClickZ | The Media Landscape | Scoop.it

Based on the fact that the local search results continue to favor directories, listing aggregators, etc., it's time to adjust your local strategy. First, review your local website traffic generation over the past few months: has it declined from last year/quarter? If yes, take a look at your specific organic search traffic to see if that is the root cause of any decrease. If yes, review your website content to ensure the content is optimized with localization (city, town, neighborhood, etc.) keywords and phrases. Review your website's local inbound links: do you have links from local sources like the chamber of commerce, business partners, the BBB, etc.?
