Study shows the new Facebook newsfeed impacts negatively on small Facebook Pages

Study shows the new Facebook newsfeed impacts negatively on small Facebook Pages | KT-Online | Scoop.it

Facebook analytics site Edgerank Checker has released a study into the impact of the new Facebook newsfeed, one month into its release.

 

When Facebook rolled out the changes to the feed last month, moving from a two tab system of ‘latest news’ and ‘most popular’, to the real-time updates and single stream, it meant that users were exposed to more content, as we were now seeing every single update made by any of our friends, no matter what page we were on within Facebook.

 

The impact for businesses however, was that Page content was getting less exposure, as you were now competing more heavily for space. The study from Edgerank Checker has found that over a sample of over 5,800 random Pages, 82% experienced a reduction in the amount of impressions on the Page.

Humanizing Online Reputation: Connect.Me is Crushing Klout & PeerIndex

Humanizing Online Reputation: Connect.Me is Crushing Klout &  PeerIndex | KT-Online | Scoop.it
I am thoroughly convinced that Connect.Me will obliterate Klout as well as PeerIndex and possibly Kred as well. Connect.me aims to humanize reputation scoring. Clout from our peers, with incredible transparency. Further, how Trust is regarded, as Connect.Me is still being crafted, this is what wins you over.


The vouches are only the beginning. We are going to see stats per specialty/general public and by specialty/within our connections, and we will thus know who the 'go-to' person is, whether we want to fish within our own pond or worldwide, and we will have this from Connect.me...

The Seven Personality Types on Social Media | Social Media Today

The Seven Personality Types on Social Media | Social Media Today | KT-Online | Scoop.it

So, as the force that is social media drives onwards and upwards, more and more newbies are entering the online foray that is Facebook, Twitter, personal blogging and the myriad of other social spaces available for us to live, work, and play on.

 

And with it, they bring their personalities into the social media spectrum, too. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

 

It’s important to understand the different personalities at work on social media platforms – so you can better understand how to connect, engage and build relationships with them. Or, on occasions, how to avoid the difficult and negative types out there...
