Recruiters Use LinkedIn And Twitter (But Not Facebook) To Source Job Candidates [INFOGRAPHIC] - AllTwitter | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Yesterday we looked at a report from Bullhorn Reach that analyzed how some 35,000 recruiters are using social networking sites to find prospective candidates.

LinkedIn dominated all platforms, with a top-heavy 48 percent of recruiters using only this channel to source candidates.

Facebook Timeline: Disliked by the Masses [INFOGRAPHIC]

Facebook Timeline: Disliked by the Masses [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

A whopping 70% of Internet users dislike Facebook Timeline.

Facebook layout changes are rarely welcomed with open arms by the majority of users and Timeline has been no exception.

A whopping of 70% of people who responded to a SodaHead poll would ditch Timeline if they could. Some 20% like it and 10% of survey respondents do not have Facebook accounts. The survey asked 1,327 people what they thought about the soon-to-be mandatory Facebook Timeline.

The countdown to full-adoption of Timeline started two weeks ago, when Facebook announced that users would see notifications on their home page and then have seven days to clean up their Timelines. Facebook hasn’t set a specific date for the universal adoption of Timeline, but it should happen “within a few weeks.”

Infographic: The (new) best time to post to social media | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Conventional social media wisdom suggests you should post your content during the peak times that people are using sites like Twitter and Facebook. But HubSpot’s Dan Zarella has a different idea—and he’s likely on to something here.

He calls hit “contra-competitive timing,” and the notion is simple: Post content at off peak times, and your content will be free of the clutter and subject to more likes, retweets, and link clicks.

6 Social Media Networks to Watch in 2012 plus Infographics | Jeffbullas's Blog | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Social media is spreading knowledge globally at the speed of a “Tweet” and provides us all with tools that can enable us to follow our dreams, if only we can capture and heighten that curiosity for knowledge that drives humans to succeed.

Facebook and Twitter allow you to connect with your tribe, whether that is in New York, London or Lombok, that can provide stimulation and synergy that will surprise you with its breadth and reach and provide neuron muscle and connect you with your passionate energy that you may not have known you had.

The social media ecosystem is now so extensive and encompassing that I thought that it would be best to stand back and reflect on some significant events and evolutionary changes that are impacting how we communicate and connect.

Marketers Who Share Content Drive Traffic, Gain Customers [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Content marketing is an industry that is booming, though most companies outsource these services or don't take advantage of sharing content.

Content marketing was a top priority for businesses in 2011, and it is going to remain so in 2012.

In the past year, marketers distributed more business-to-business content on YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter than ever, according to CMI.

Content marketing encompasses new techniques and methods of sharing information. Spreading unique, helpful bits within the industry or with consumers creates brand awareness, new customers and client loyalty.
