US veterans are calling on Congress to defend online freedom
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Please share to your vet friends. Also please support this if you love curating articles here on Scoop.it. We need to stay on our toes about media policy, access and reliable content. I personally would like to see a bucket offer of articles from all sources as more and more publishers put up Pay walls. I will never buy all those subscriptions but I might pay affordable shared buckets of individual articles. Like if you topically review and share 50 articles a week or 100/ week or month. Why not have something like a Apple tunes for articles where you can read and share a certain amount and have fractions of cents go to the authors and publishers each time from any source you choose. Certain income levels, Senior citizens and students get free or a break on open use... just an idea... net neutrality would help insure new options like that when they come up. I donate to independent news that put you in the loop affordably and rarely have paywalls in the first place and are more beholding to readers rather than overlords at publishing houses. I like traditional sources as well as they often double down on accuracy for legal reasons.... but the also often don’t address issues that harm the advertisers.

WTF is zero rating? –

WTF is zero rating? – | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Whenever you watch a video, post a picture, or send a message, those bytes are analyzed and tallied by your internet provider. But what if some of those data-heavy services just didn't count towards the cap? That's what's called "zero rating," and while it sounds good in theory, it's rather problem…
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Net Neutrality officially ends Monday... don’t look for instant changes or people would notice and push back. But over time they will change and it will permanently change the best of the WEB for the worse. This will happen like you boil of frog in cold water so internet user won’t notice like that frog in cold water pot can’t tell the burn is coming till it is being cooked. Here is one way ISPs are already dodging net neutrality. We won the vote to save net neutrality and the web in the Senate recently. The house is now where we need to fight to preserve the net neutrality rules set up of Wheeler and push to make these laws not partisan debates. Time is important... it doesn’t hurt to show your disapproval to your ISPs either... What you and I think and do is their bottom line and we as consumers can in fact pull the bottom out from under them if we have the will.

Don’t Fall for the Clickbait Trap.

Don’t Fall for the Clickbait Trap. | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

"While content marketing strives to generate brand awareness through “clicks,” it’s dangerous to your business and brand if your content is misleading or misrepresentative.

This type of content is most commonly described as “clickbait.”

The New York Times defines clickbait as “headlines that leave readers feeling cheated when they’ve finished the article” in the post ‘How We Define Clickbait (Which We Do Our Best to Avoid). 

In addition, here’s a great vid from Techquickie for a more in-depth explanation of clickbait."

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Lucky us within 2 weeks of net neutrality protections ending the Internet Service Providers take control and literally ownership of all our content and personal communication systems other than snail mail...Great isn’t it! We get to return to paying big networks and corporations for limited preselected services and content like we had with cable and old style TV! It will also to that way to get your own messages out to people. Better follow and push back on a lot of this while there is still time or just acknowledge you are going to settle the rest of your life and likely your great grand child’s as well for what your ISP decides is right you and your family.... and charge plenty for stuff you don’t want because of deals they cut that lined their pockets with our dollars. Contact your house rep to say vote to protect net neutrality and reverse the repeal of net neutrality! The senate already passed the reverse of the repeal. We only need 40+ more to sign on the reversal of the repeal of net neutrality.

Three Ways To Make Facebook's Updates Work For Your Business

Three Ways To Make Facebook's Updates Work For Your Business | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Pexels Now that the initial Facebook frenzy has simmered down, the changes to the news feed algorithm are becoming clearer to define and easier to navigate -- great news for small businesses aiming to build and maintain their social media presence. More recently, Facebook’s fourth-quarter earnings call shed some light on the company’s announcements and brought a new focus on meaningful interaction. With the right approach, your brand can take advantage of changes and set the groundwork for success in 2018. In case you missed the most recent updates, I’ll narrow down three ways you can keep your business at the center of the conversation and at the top of Facebook’s updated news feed. 1. Be intentional with your organic posts. More than any other type of post, organic content requires a planned approach to stand out and succeed with Facebook’s updated news feed. Just remember that the new algorithm prioritizes quality over quantity, so if you’re receiving lackluster engagement on your organic posts, consider these guidelines: • Create shareworthy content using storytelling. • Switch to square video. It consistently outperforms videos shared in landscape format. • Remember, 85% of mobile video is watched with the sound off, so emphasize your message with text. 2. Take a targeted approach to video ads. Unlike traditional TV commercials, Facebook video ads offer a cost-effective approach to marketing your products or services. Placing ad spend against your video marketing efforts can amplify results and help your brand reach new audiences. To do that, though, you’ll need to decide exactly how to place your ad. There are two ways to invest in Facebook video ads: boosting an ad and running a campaign through Facebook Ads Manager. Of the two, Facebook Ads Manager is the more powerful tool. Though the boost button still offers value by elevating your business’s reach, Facebook Ads Manager targets more effectively. Not sure how to get started? Here are a few pointers. • Try “Guided Creation” for a step-by-step tutorial while using Ads Manager. This option walks you through the process of choosing your Facebook ad’s objective, budget, schedule and more. • Target a lookalike audience by uploading your client or customer email list. Being thoughtful about your target audience can broaden your reach, improving the results of your campaign. • Gauge how your video ads are performing using real-time ad reporting. This can help you decide whether to put more spend against an ad that is performing especially well. Additionally, testing which video ads receive the most engagement can help you understand your audience and create content they will enjoy and share. 3. Incorporate Facebook Live to drum up conversation. In a recent News Feed FYI, Adam Mosseri, head of Facebook News Feed, stated that “Page posts that generate conversation between people will show higher in News Feed. For example, live videos often lead to discussion among viewers on Facebook.” Facebook Live functions as a medium where small businesses can answer questions in real time, giving audiences agency in the conversation and making them more likely to engage with content. • Answer questions. Chances are you already know the sorts of questions your customer base has. Start with a few frequently asked questions, and then open up the floor for viewer queries. • Share expertise. At my company, we often go live to share expertise with our audience. Try this with your own brand. For instance, if you’re a fitness expert, share a few diet and exercise tips. If you’re advertising a beauty product, give a live tutorial. • Make an announcement. Use Facebook Live to make an announcement or introduce a product that your customers may have questions about. Make sure to include language that encourages folks to chime in. Though it seems like algorithm changes are cracking down on business pages, there’s no need for your business to throw in the towel just yet. Facebook’s strategy shift is not a small-business armageddon. In reality, there’s even more opportunity now to target potential customers and clients with video. And if you incorporate the strategies above, you can not only survive Facebook's latest changes but thrive with them. Forbes Communications Council is an invitation-only community for executives in successful public relations, media strategy, creative and advertising agencies. Do I qualify?
