2011 was a busy year for social media, witnessing the launch of Google+ and the widespread adoption of Twitter.

Meanwhile, Rebecca Black hit the headlines by releasing “the worst song ever recorded”, earning 167 million YouTube views in the process, and Take This Lollipop became the fastest growing Facebook application ever.

So what does 2012 have in store for us?

5 things you are doing wrong on LinkedIn | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it
Earlier this week I edited a story by my colleague Cory Fernandez, who asked a few ex-recruiters how they scoped out job candidates on social media. One thing he learned caught my eye: “Don’t go overboard customizing your LinkedIn. Unlike Twitter or Instagram, the professional network isn’t the place to post inspirational quotes or use …

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report

The Explosion of Pinterest and Why You Should Read This Report | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Dave Copeland for Readwriteweb. There have been many articles about Pinterest but if you do nothing else, read the white paper by Engauge and report they're referring to. It is absolutely the best one I've seen to date. (more details below)

 

The most important thing in this piece is the report, here's what you'll see:

 

A new Engauge white paper breaks down:

 

**the make-up of the average Pinterest user 

 

**shows that the end result of less reading is more of a focus on content curation than creation.

 

**The timing of that trend, combined with a stunning design when Internet users are focusing more on visual than text, has allowed Pinterest to explode in popularity.

 

This is what caught my attention - a quote from a user:

 

"When I'm looking for new trends on specific topics like fashion or birthday party themes, I now search Pinterest first -- not Google." - Karah Street

 

Curated by Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Business and Beyond"

 

If you're in making Pinterest work for you, you might want to visit my other topic: Pinterest Watch.
