Roger Francis's insight:

I agree with the author. They are trivialising the concept.

7 Social Media Marketing Mistakes to Avoid With LinkedIn

7 Social Media Marketing Mistakes to Avoid With LinkedIn | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
With over 329 million members, LinkedIn can provide invaluable networking opportunities for professional services firms. Since it is a social network geared specifically to business professionals, LinkedIn users don’t have to battle the private and public persona struggle that other sites like Facebook or Twitter can create.

Users can join industry-specific groups and connect with others in their niche without having to worry about a newsfeed filled with photographs of their followers’ children. LinkedIn isn’t just a great networking tool—it can also be the perfect platform for B2B social media marketing.

Even though LinkedIn maintains a professional environment, it’s still all-too-easy to make social media blunders. Luckily, all of our top seven LinkedIn mistakes are easily corrected once realized.

5 critical SEO tips to curate content like a king

5 critical SEO tips to curate content like a king | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
When you curate content the right way, you should never get in trouble with Google or your readers. In fact, it should do just the opposite: improve your search rankings and delight your readers and followers.

One common misconception about content curation is that it’s simply reposting entire pages of other people’s content on your own site. But let me be clear: this is not curation.

So, what is content curation? While there is some variance among definitions, I like how marketing expert Heidi Cohen defines it: “Content curation assembles, selects, categorizes, comments on, and presents the most relevant, highest quality information to meet your audience’s needs on a specific subject.”

In other words, content curation isn’t taking other people’s content and claiming it as your own. It isn’t reposting entire pages of content, word for word, with or without attribution. It isn’t regurgitating info available elsewhere for the benefit of your audience. More detail on how curated content differs from duplicate content.

Content curation is taking the best content available on a topic and adding your own unique voice and perspective to it. It’s sort of a roundup of the “best of the best” content, presented in a way that makes it insanely valuable to the unique needs and interests of your audience.

While it should be an integral part of your content strategy, it’s important to do it appropriately. Following are the 5 tips that will make sure your curated content improves your search rankings and delights your followers and readers.
