Using Pinterest and Instagram as a Presentation Tool

Using Pinterest and Instagram as a Presentation Tool | Local Marketing for Small Business | Scoop.it

Students are currently studying World War II in my classroom.  One of the elements we look at is how the World War II Generation, the Greatest Generation, was able to endure and succeed in this era.  Students look at one particular character from Tom Brokaw’s book, The Greatest Generation.  They are required to tell their character’s story from the war era using a tech tool in their presentation.

A few students have begun thinking outside of the box in regards to presentation tools. Students have been using Instagram and Pinterest as their tech tool...

[INFOGRAPHIC] 4 Reasons Why Google+ is a Killer B2B Social Media Platform | Social Media B2B

[INFOGRAPHIC] 4 Reasons Why Google+ is a Killer B2B Social Media Platform | Social Media B2B | Local Marketing for Small Business | Scoop.it
Recent studies indicate that, while many companies were asleep at the switch, Google+ has emerged as the killer platform for B2B social media marketing.

 

Key quote:

In Google Chairman Eric Schmidt’s upcoming book, The New Digital Age, he is quoted as saying: “Within search results, information tied to verified online profiles will be ranked higher than content without such verification, which will result in most users naturally clicking on the top (verified) results. The true cost of remaining anonymous, then, might be irrelevance.”

 

This is the clearest statement yet from Google (which tends not to be very clear) highlighting how authorship is becoming extremely relevant in search results on Google.

 

This essentially means that if you are posting on Google+ correctly, your content will be ranked higher than content posted elsewhere. Furthermore, because of Google+’s tight integration with the Google search engine, your posts are treated much like regular webpages (unlike posts on other social networks), and will therefore rank higher in search results.

Social Curation is not limited to marketing, brands and "the web". Many of the principles described here can equally be applied to enterprise (workplace) communities by the Community Manager (or Facilitator). The role is all about helping the community achieve it's goals...by aggregating, organizing and sharing content created by the community, i.e. "Social Curation"!

Dawn Adams Miller's curator insight, April 13, 2013 11:22 AM

This is definitely a major role for a community manager which is why I love learning about these two topics: community management and curation.  They are inseparable.  I think this is what makes the difference between a community that has members and a community that has ACTIVE members, which, of course, is the POINT!  Enjoy!
