13 Ways to Speed Up Your WordPress Site - The SiteSell Blog | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
People demand that websites load fast, and therefore Google demands it too. Make sure your WordPress site is up to the challenge!

Via Mike Allton
The Twinkie Awards's insight:

If you think your site is fast enough, think again.

As mobile usage continues to rise, and the amount of time people are willing to spend waiting for a site to load continues to fall, search engines like Google are placing a premium on site speed.

That means poor site performance will hurt your search engine rankings.

What Does It Mean To Be Social On Social Media?

What Does It Mean To Be Social On Social Media? | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
Businesses are often advised to "Be Social" on social media, but what does that mean, exactly? What does it look like, and is it even worth the effort?

Via Mike Allton
The Twinkie Awards's insight:

To Be (social) Or Not To Be (social)

That is the question which no doubt plagues many a blogger and business owner. Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to use social media a certain way, or oppose the sea of get rich quick and touted shortcuts.

It's not an easy road, but I believe it's far from the undiscover'd country Hamlet might make it out to be.

  • Recipe Pins will be enhanced with rich data that includes ingredients, cooking times and serving sizes. This will also increase the number of pins in the system to four billion. Pinterest reports that nearly 90 percent of pinners are saving food and drink recipes on their mobile devices, and appetizer pinning for the Oscars has increased 15 percent in February alone; it’s also 3X more popular than last year.
  • Movie Pins will add information like rating, cast members and movie reviews. An example can be seen on the Must-watch Movies board.

Why Sarcastic People Are More Successful

Why Sarcastic People Are More Successful | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it
"The highest form of intelligence."
The study, titledThe Highest Form of Intelligence: Sarcasm Increases Creativity Through Abstract Thinking for Both Expressers and Recipients, was conducted by a team of researchers from Harvard, Columbia, and Insead. The team tested the effects of sarcasm by having volunteers engage in a sincere, a sarcastic, or a neutral (control) exchange before completing a task designed to assess their creativity.

What did the researchers find? Sarcasm, it turns out, is a pretty good mental workout. "To create or decode sarcasm, both the expressers and recipients of sarcasm need to overcome the contradiction (i.e., psychological distance) between the literal and actual meanings of the sarcastic expressions. This is a process that activates and is facilitated by abstraction, which in turn promotes creative thinking," Harvard's Francesca Gino, who participated in the study, explained in the Harvard Gazette.

The result was "those in the sarcasm conditions subsequently performed better on creativity tasks than those in the sincere conditions or the control condition. This suggests that sarcasm has the potential to catalyze creativity in everyone," Adam Galinsky, another member of the research team, added. In short, sarcastic comments make your whole team more creative, so go ahead and let fly with the occasional snide-but-hilarious comment. Thanks, science!
