The Science and Psychology of Twitter: Why We Follow, Favorite and Share – 3cseo

The Science and Psychology of Twitter: Why We Follow, Favorite and Share – 3cseo | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

When I choose someone new to follow, when I compose a new tweet, when I share and favorite an update, I seldom think about the why. My following sessions would probably seem haphazard to an outsider, and my favoriting technique comes and goes from one strategy to another.

 

Even so, the way I use Twitter is far less random than I thought. There is science and psychology behind the way we all tweet.

 

Researchers have discovered trends in the way that we perform every major action on Twitter—favoriting, updating, sharing, and following. And there's even an interesting bit of psychology behind what makes Twitter so attractive in the first place. Here's a look at the psychology of Twitter: what makes us follow, favorite, share and keep coming back for more....

This is so informative and so helpful! It is an exhaustive study on my we are addicted to micro-social networking sights, and the writer has explained this through his understanding of Psychology. Intermittent conditioning is the term used to explain why we keep returning to the site. A single re-tweet, or a single favorite would be enough to keep us visiting the site from time to time! The researcher has also narrowed down some of the possible factors that might contribute to one's popularity on a social networking site. The findings of this research have implications for not just Twitter, but also Facebook, and Blog spot.  Being a regular writer on Blog spot, I was able to gain important ideas about how to make my posts more visible, and to be able to get more hits. I am sure that all bloggers and  tweeters will gain a lot after reading this!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, July 8, 2014 5:24 AM

From the article:

What spurs us to follow someone on Twitter? Researchers at Georgia Tech and Michigan combined to study the factors involved in following.

 

The factors they came up with boiled down to three categories: social behaviors, message content, and social network structure. Here are the individual factors for each, starting with social behaviors:

Tweet volumeBurstiness – tweets per hourInteractions – replies, mentions, and favoritesBroadcast communication – the ratio of tweets with no @-mentionTrustworthiness of the profile – How well is the bio filled out? Is there a URL in the profile? Is there a location listed?

 

The individual factors for message content:

Positive/negative sentimentInformational content – ratio of tweets containing either a URL, RT, MT, HT, or “via”Meformer content – ratio of tweets containing self-referencing pronouns like “I,” “me,” “we,” and “us”Topic focusRetweets – how often your content gets retweetedHashtag usageTReDIX – Tweet Reading Difficulty Index (based on the frequency of real English words longer than 6 letters)

 

The individual factors in social network structure:

Reciprocity – The number of people you follow who also follow youAttention-status ratio – Total followers compared to total followingNetwork overlap – How similar are the people you follow to those a follower follows

 

Does any of this resonate with how you choose who to follow?

7 Simple Things Successful People Do Every Night

7 Simple Things Successful People Do Every Night | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

How you spend your night can have a huge impact on the day that follows. Do you spend your time ruminating over issues? Or maybe you stress over something that didn't quite go right during the day. There's no doubt, how you think affects how you feel. This is particularly important at night as you try to unwind and prepare for rest. This sets you up for sleep which serves many vital purposes. When I look at my clients who achieve the most during their days and are happiest, they are the ones who have a healthy routine at night. They set themselves up for success the following day by thinking and acting in a particular way.

5 Ways to Motivate Employees in Training

5 Ways to Motivate Employees in Training | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Establishing an employee training program is one thing. Actually getting your employees to buy in and give it their best effort is another. If you want to maximize the value of your training program, then you must find ways to motivate your employees to succeed.

 

What will it really take to get your employees to invest in your training program? This can be a tricky challenge, but once you're able to zero in on what makes them tick, you'll find that your training programs are exponentially more effective.

 

Here are a few suggestions to get your wheels turning.

7 Habits for Projecting Confidence Instead of Arrogance

7 Habits for Projecting Confidence Instead of Arrogance | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

We all want to be more confident-it's a personal quality that helps us build strong relationships with others, get things done, and move forward in our work and life. However, sometimes we can go overboard, and our confidence can become something much darker: arrogance.

 

In their book, Why Leaders Fail, authors Peter Stark and Mary Kelly explain how leaders sabotage themselves-and their organizations-when they project arrogance instead of confidence. According to the authors, the defining factor of a strong leader is rooted in the relationships he or she builds with followers, and how effectively he or she propels the organization toward great achievement.

Fake news is a convenient scapegoat, but the big 2016 problem was the real news

Fake news is a convenient scapegoat, but the big 2016 problem was the real news | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Speaking in early December at a ceremony to honor Harry Reid’s retirement from the US Senate, Hillary Clinton took aim at a target that would have been totally unfamiliar to audiences as recently as the summer of 2016: fake news.


She spoke of “an epidemic” of the stuff that has “flooded social media” over the past year and “can have real-world consequences.”


This was reported largely as commentary on the Pizzagate conspiracy theory, which had recently led to an alarming armed standoff at DC’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant. But it was also pretty clearly an allusion to her own recently failed presidential campaign, especially because she spoke favorably of the idea of bipartisan legislation to curb foreign propaganda news, arguing that “it is imperative that leaders in both the private and public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives.”...

Fake news has been used to boost TRP ratings and sales of newspapers in the vernacular languages in India. 2016 will be marked as the year when Fake News ruled the roost! The problem with Fake News is that there is a grave danger of people beginning to believe in it. While no doubt, Fake News can be the latest tool for lampooning specific people, its partisan nature might also whip up communal tension. In a society that is getting fragmented, Fake News could only be Bad News!

A Practical To-Do List That Will Finally Make Training Seminars Worth Your Time | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

You finally got approval to go to that pricey training seminar. Maybe you’ll be learning the secrets of entertainers or fishmongers. But do you know how you’re going to deliver a return on the training investment to your company?

 

"Organizations that send people out for training really need to have some type of a plan from beginning to end," says David Lewis, president and CEO of OperationsInc., a human resources consulting firm. And if your organization isn’t providing such a framework, it’s up to you to do so, so that you can not only prove that it was worthwhile, but also to open the door for future training.

 

Here is what you should be doing before, during, and after to maximize the return on investment.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
A lot of well meaning organisations like sending their employees for seminars and trainging sessions. The idea is that these in-service training programs will help their employees ratain their edge. Unfortunately, simply sending employees for trainings might not work unless these training sessions are backed up by a pre-training checklist and a post-training feedback over a period of time. Trainings introduce the attendee to a new ideas and innovative methods, but then over a periosd of time, these ideas fizzle out! Sustainibilty is an issue, and the second most  serious problem is that attrition rates might rob the organisation of the presence of such people.

How Employee Burnout Became An Epidemic And What It Might Take To Fix It

How Employee Burnout Became An Epidemic And What It Might Take To Fix It | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

You'd be forgiven for feeling a little burned out from hearing about burnout. For years, experts have been sounding alarms that modern workers are struggling with career-sinking levels of chronic exhaustion and other issues.

 

So when Charlie DeWitt, vice president of business development at Kronos, a workforce management software company, declares that "employee burnout has reached epidemic proportions," you may think you've heard it all before. But according to new research by Kronos and Future Workplace, burnout really is getting even worse and more widespread, and so are the consequences of it. This time around, there are some surprising reasons why—and a few steps employers can take right away to turn things around.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Employee burnout needs to be tackled before it becomes an epidemic. This can be done by addressing work-life balance issues, grievance redressal systems, and ensuring that there are sufficient breaks from routine. Regular chances for a day out retreats where there is more of outdoors activities and less of workshops on abstruse topics will help. The excuse that 30 % attrition is OK is not a good trend. Exceedingly high attrition rates might be the result of employee burnout, and these need to be addressed seriously.

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write

The Only Three Networking Emails You Need To Know How To Write | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

It’s helpful to be honest about why you’re reaching out (for example, you’re going through a job search or moving to a new city). It can combat nerves and help the process feel more genuine. In other words, it instantly solves two core issues many people stress about when told to network.

 

That said, as with anything else, you know there’s a difference between being straightforward and being overly blunt. For example, you know to write, "I was thinking of approaching the project from a different angle" over "I hate all of your ideas."

 

Aspiring to find this balance, many people begin networking emails with "Remember me?" or even, "You probably don’t remember me..." After all, why not begin with an honest admission so the other person knows you aren’t being fake? Well, unfortunately, this approach often backfires. While you’re coming from a sincere place, it’s pretty audacious to ask for something from someone whom you’re blatantly admitting you barely know.

It certainly helps to be upfront, honest and straightforward in writing Networking Emails.
