Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:22 PM
I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, June 11, 2013 9:33 PM
Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.

10 Steps to Creating a Winning Social Media Strategy  

10 Steps to Creating a Winning Social Media Strategy   | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Social media has changed the way businesses market themselves online.

It has forever altered how they interact, respond and meet customer needs.

If you are in business, whether you are a large or small company, social networking is your online connection to customers and potential clients.

It’s an opportunity to turn your fans, followers, readers and subscribers into raving fans and ultimately, marketing evangelists. Social media offers visibility unlike any other marketing medium.

Given the power of social media, wouldn’t you agree that it is critically important for businesses to not only get social, but implement strategies and processes that support scalability, efficiency, and successful social engagement?

I would say YES!

1. Think purpose, not platform. Connect students through function and purpose, not technology and gadgets 
2. Use social media to establish context. Use social media to help students establish a context for themselves. 
3. Model intellectual tolerance. Model for students how to relate to others who are different—that think, look, and act differently than what they’re accustomed to. 
4. Illuminate interdependence. Help students clarify for themselves who and what they’re connected to–the obvious and less obvious. 
5. Extend conceptual comfort zones. Use place-based education and project-based learning to help students make new connections to people, places, and ideas outside of the curriculum map 
6. Clarify categories of knowledge. Help students see knowledge in categories—academic vs recreational; creative vs industrial, fluid vs fixed, etc. 
7. Analyze and compare citizenship and digital citizenship. Help students see the effects of their behaviour on others, and of others’ behaviour on them. 
8. Amplify cognition. Have a new idea? Share it with others who are interested in those kinds of ideas. 
9. Analyze how the form affects the message. If students can see the how the form of the message affects the message itself, they can think ‘around’ and through the platform and see ideas and their roots themselves. 
10. Seek authenticity. Assist students in identifying authentic roles in a community they care about.

10 Strategies To Help Students Use Social Media For Critical Thinking - | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Social media is here to stay.

No matter how much we lament a loss of privacy, too much screen time, superficial identity, or countless other worries, media has been around since language was invented, and we have always sought to make that media as social as locally available technology would allow.

From chisels and tablets to the printing press to radio and television to twitter and Facebook, as long as we continue to have thoughts and ideas, we will continue to seek to publish and socialize them with others.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Shane Barker because it provides information on how to increase engagement on social media.

 

It's important to have a community that is interested in your brand content.

 

Drive Up Your Social Media Conversations

 

As you grow your audience online you will want to build lasting relationships with them. I agree that in order to encourage engagement you need to review your current strategy and make adjustments.

 

Barker explains how to post content that people will want to respond to.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Include humor in your tweets and posts. People want to be entertained, not just informed. Include images and relatable captions.

 

  • You will improve your chances of being seen if you include great images. There are free online programs that can help you achieve this.

 

  • Publish more video content -- these tend to get more reactions and feedback. Do this in between your images in a balanced way.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it helps you improve your visual marketing with shareable infographics.

 

Visual graphics can be both fun and informative for your niche audience.

 

Create Infographics That Grow Your Following Online

 

People are drawn to appealing content that grabs their attention right away. I agree that infographics can help attract more subscribers and followers.

 

Gilbert shows you how to create graphics that audiences are more willing to share.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Find out what is on the minds of your target market the most before designing your infographic. Make sure the content is both timely and relevant.

 

  • Focus on a specific group inside your niche and appeal to their pressing problems and needs. Make good on what your title promises to them.

 

  • If you have a study or a lot of data put it into a fun infographic. This is a great way to turn boring content into something interesting.

What Are the New Rules for Engaging an Online Community? | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Marketing and public relations’ role within professional organizations has shifted drastically with the advent of the online community. Now there’s a greater emphasis placed on storytelling. Traditionally, organizations would simply broadcast news, or channel it through the media – observe the reaction, then respond on a flexible timetable. Today, branding isn’t simply about beaming out a message. It’s about building trust with end-users, telling a compelling story and creating two-way social streams of dialogue.

L'optimisation des moteurs de recherche est le processus d'obtention d'une visibilité pour un site Web nouveau ou déjà établi utilisant des méthodes organiques par opposition à la publicité payante. L'objectif principal est que le site ciblé apparaît sur les index supérieurs afin que les navigateurs puissent le trouver facilement. Cela entraîne à son tour des messages non sollicités pour le trafic qui est transmis au lieu virtuel. On prétend que cela est efficace en tant que méthode de commerce électronique, car il transforme certains des visiteurs sur la page, à l'origine à la recherche d'informations basées sur des mots clés, en clients. Il existe plusieurs caractéristiques qui en font une méthode de reconnaissance naturaliste ou plutôt organique. Tout d'abord, cela peut signifier que la page visitée présente un contenu important sous forme de moyens audio ou visuels. Les sites qui ont généralement des messages vidéo peuvent attirer des navigateurs qui visent le matériel audiovisuel. En incluant des vidéos haut de gamme provenant de versions récentes, elles peuvent obtenir une visibilité élevée lorsqu'elles sont publiées sur les pages les plus importantes. De même, de nombreux hôtes s'appuient également sur le mot écrit en raison de sa rentabilité. Ils créent ensuite un contenu pertinent basé sur certains mots clés qui sont distribués de manière logique sur toute la page afin de faciliter l'accessibilité par les moteurs de recherche. La lecture est indéniablement difficile, et je suis surpris de tout cela, même si c'est le premier Royaume-Uni qui durera 3 à 4 points de pourcentage avant la récession. Quelque chose d'étonnant, Google Analytics ne peut pas encore distinguer son propre Chrome, alors j'ai dû faire la comparaison des figures de son site parent? La part de Chrome (à l'exclusion des robots) était de 2,3% de trafic au cours des deux derniers jours. Dans le même temps, j'ai remarqué un comportement d'information de référence intéressant. La plus grande composition organique de l'optimisation des moteurs de recherche est des liens. Ce sont des flux qui se connectent directement à un autre domaine pertinent. Les hôtes tentent généralement de cibler des liens vers des sites connus qui peuvent leur donner une ligne de visée car ils sont déjà connus. Cela influence également la manière dont les résultats sont publiés sur les principaux index. Par exemple, un domaine donné peut avoir mille connexions avec des points de vente non pertinents, mais il est négligé lors du classement par un autre, y compris une centaine des portails les mieux classés. Cela est dû au fait que ceux qui ont un contenu informatif soit auto-généré ou externalisé à partir d'autres postes populaires sont considérés comme plus importants et pertinents.

Social Media Leadership Rules | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

If Napoleon lived in the technology era, would he have a Twitter account? I bet he would. Presidents, business magnates, social activists… everyone is on social media nowadays. It’s not just about connecting with the audience and informing them about the activities these leaders are involved in. It’s about leading. Social media allows them to expand their leadership to a wider audience.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a nice example of how politicians can use social media to connect with their citizens and the entire world. He uses his Instagram profile to promote everything he is doing, but he also uses the opportunity to awaken the public’s awareness of different issues. He improves the way people perceive his leadership by allowing everyone to post comments and ask questions. In January 2017, Trudeau became the first politician to host a live story on Snapchat.

Your website may need a major upgrade in order to stay current.

 

Make Your Website More Successful

 

To attract subscribers your website needs to stand out online. I agree that a new design can help improve your chances.

 

Zolotaryova provides the right steps to take to make the necessary changes.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Before getting started it's important to analyze and narrow down your niche. For this to happen you need to take advantage of the right tools to learn more about what the competition is doing.

 

  • Use organic search methods to attract website traffic. Include a set of words and phrases that reflect your brand -- known as semantic core.

 

  • Perform a technical audit such as your URLs, Meta tags and titles, any broken links, ect. Fixing these errors will help more visitors see your website in search.

Learning in the age of Social Networks

Learning in the age of Social Networks | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Our understanding of how to learn in this globally connected world is limited by our experience of learning. Our formal education has led us to believe that learning is something given to us. We are one step removed from the process of planning and regulating our learning for so much of our lives as learners that we become dependent on educators. We have powerful tools at our disposal and yet make poor use of them. Networks which should bring us closer together are used to divide and segregate. Instead of enhancing our collective understanding we are confronted by the challenges of alternate facts and fake news. We have an abundance of information but seemingly little wisdom and little understanding of who we may trust and how we may find truth.
