Lists: 10 Reasons to Take a Fresh Look (Monty Python style) | via @listly

Lists: 10 Reasons to Take a Fresh Look (Monty Python style) | via @listly | Collaborative Revolution |

Have you seen slidedecks or infographics that look like lists? Media is morphing with a focus on reuse. We all want to get more with less. Are you experimenting?

Agree and there is something MAGICAL in the backend about the stacked list. Google love 'em. Also agree that lists provide a cool social opportunity because lists are UNIVERSAL.

Doesn't matter if you are an American, German or Italian we bet you make lists. LIsts are the crib sheet of our too busy and technically overwhelmed lives.

Looking for socially engaging content, and WHO ISN'T, we have a single word for you LISTS.

How To Moderate Social Media

How To Moderate Social Media | Collaborative Revolution |
When you throw a dinner party, you dream of excellent company, good food, and constant conversation. Social media managers strive for the same thing.

The World Editor’s Forum recently published a guide and study on the area of comment moderation. This guide concludes with six pointers for publishers to “promote respectful dialogue and conversation rather than uncivil rants and insults, and allow intelligent, thoughtful input to shine”. So what exactly are these pointers?

More details at the link.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

If conversations are the new social currency we've got some tools, guidelines and social mores to create. Online conversations are a tad on the wild west side yet, but trolls and spam can't support themselves for long.

The cost any network built on conversations incurs to rid itself of spam and trolls could kill the golden goose. Community and social "policing" and hoping the good guys math is always just a little faster is the hope conversation based "dinner parties" depend on as roughly described in this "how to moderate" social media post shares.

By moderating we see what we already knew - mobile is different. Mobile requires maps, games and PICTURES.

Taylor Roy's curator insight, April 29, 2014 1:34 PM

We've made such incredible progress with technology over the past 10 years. This chart in the article shows the percentages of the platform that online content is used on. It starts with photos. only 8% of time with photos is spent on a desktop, while the other 92% are using their phone. From here, the mobile percentage decreases while the desktop increases. However we see platforms like maps, games, weather, and social networking being over 50% on mobile. The desktop percentage starts to be over 50% on online content like retail, entertainment news, business/finance, news, health information, and portals. While these are mostly used on a desktop, it doesn't mean that they are not used on mobile devices. Every piece of online content has a percentage of over 25% used on mobile devices.

Content curation is a great way to build credibility and share your expertise with your followers.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Normally I don't like "link farm-y" posts like this since all the work is on me (as the reader). I like this one because of it is a broad roundup of helpful ideas and resources to promote social shares and engagement, so, on aggregate, a time save despite having to do extra front end parsing at frist.

10 Tips For Better Online Discussion | LearnDash | Collaborative Revolution |

Great post about how to spark conversations in educational environments with several tips Businesses can steal:

  1. Make the discussion board graded, or part of a certificate process.
  2. Don’t hide the link to the forums – it should be clear where discussions take place.
  3. Clearly post all guidelines (in multiple places) for the forum.
  4. Display topics in chronological order.
  5. Tie all discussion back to core learning objectives and include a link to the course or any referenced material.
  6. Don’t ask questions that are too broad – keep the topic focused.
  7. Encourage (and even start) controversial discussion.
  8. Discussion topics in a forum should be spike curiosity (the previous tip is a great way to do this).
  9. Don’t just moderate the discussions, participate in them and help bring it back to the main point if it starts to go off topic.
  10. Don’t dominate the discussions.

At our startup CrowdFunde we are developing a tool to help businesses reap engagement and SEO benefits from conversations. Tips 3, 5 and 9 are great "steal this tips for businesses.

When businesses host conversations they need support for contributors that clears out trolls and spam (this the need for clear guidelines), keeps the conversation productive, fun and relevant so using your conversations to tie back to relevant evergreen content or products helps and joining in helps reassure contributors that a vibrant moderator/contributor is involved.

New #UseThis Video Technology for Ecom

WOW, this Augment technology that allows your customers to easily SEE your products in their home is too cool.

Watch this video to get the idea:

As a former Director of E-commerce I know that context is everything. By project your product into their (your customers') home conversions will go up by an order of magnitude.

What other uses can this idea of "augmented reality" create? Could you project your family into a vacation or your next car? Why not?

Very cool. #USEThis.

Existen en el mercado muchas aplicaciones móviles de geolocalización y pocas con marcadores. Augment es gratis y no ocupa, de entrada, mucho espacio, 
Además, es posible importar nuestros archivos 3D de una carpeta en Dropbox para visualizarlos usando Augment. También podemos crear nuestros propios marcadores.
