Google+ Is Now The Number Two Social Network In The World | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it

Reports now show that Google+ has surpassed Twitter in active users and is second only to Facebook.


A new report by Global Web Index shows that Google+ has surpassed Twitter in active users and is second only to Facebook.

 

Technically YouTube was considered #3 and Twitter came in at #4 by the numbers. Although it is good to note that Twitter is actually the fastest growing of them all, with 40% growthin the last quarter.

Two Pens's curator insight, March 3, 2013 6:24 PM

Interesting that G+ ranks #2 with so few people actually using it as a network. Shows the power of Google that everybody feel like they have to belong to it but so many don't use it :-) Nobody wants to get left behind.

Janet Louise Stephenson's curator insight, May 3, 2013 10:23 PM

Do you believe that Google+ moved ahead of Twitter?

The 8 Best Tools for Finding Competitor Keywords | WordStream | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
Keyword research is the foundation upon which all good search marketing campaigns are built. Targeting relevant, high-intent keywords, structuring campaigns into logical, relevant ad groups, and eliminating wasteful negative keywords are all steps advertisers should take to build strong PPC campaigns. You also need to do keyword research to inform your content marketing efforts and drive organic traffic.

Sometimes, though, you really need to figure out what your competitors are up to.

17 Useful CSS Cheat Sheets of 2017 | With New CSS3 Tags -  | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it



CSS is an inseparable part of front-end designers and developers, probably because it’s the only real option to describe the presentation of a document written in a markup language. It saves a lot of work by controlling the layout of multiple webpages all at once.
Along with HTML and XHTML, the Cascading Stye Sheets can be applied to any XML document such as XUL, SVG, XML, and one can use it to render speech or other media. In most cases, browser support for CSS has never been a concern once you learn CSS. However, it’s is quite difficult for designers to remember all CSS properties and values.

Four Cryptos That Are 10x Better Than Bitcoin


 


If you’ve ever thought about investing in Bitcoin, I urge you to listen to this message.
Cryptocurrencies are in the middle of a historic run, and may now be creating more millionaires every day than at any point in American history.


But it has little to do with Bitcoin, or Ethereum, or any of the big-name cryptocurrencies you’ve heard of.
Instead, sitting at the center of one of the greatest wealth creation events of all time is an incredibly lucrative class of currencies called “penny cryptos.”
Every week hundreds of these penny cryptos are doubling in value, and many of them are shooting up 1,000% or more.

7 of the Best Promotional Product Videos Ever

7 of the Best Promotional Product Videos Ever | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
One of the wisest things I've ever read about product marketing came from the writer of a children's book.

"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea," said Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, creator of The Little Prince.

The goal in crafting a perfect product video is not far off. If you want your video to resonate, it should be about more than just the product. It should be about the problem, the solution, the experience, and the larger vision of what you're trying to build.

5 Trends in Short-Form Video to Reinvigorate Your Content Strategy

5 Trends in Short-Form Video to Reinvigorate Your Content Strategy | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
With Twitter acquiring Vine in 2012 and rolling it out in early 2013, and Instagram revealing its video feature only months ago, video has become a lot more than just black and white images on a fuzzy screen. With consumers’ online video engagement higher, patience shorter, and free time smaller than ever, short-form video is an extremely important part of marketing strategy.

Here are a few of the recent trends in short-form video, and how you can use them to your advantage.

Trend #1: Reporting the News

BBC recently began experimenting with news delivery via Instagram. Reporting the news in 15 seconds is no easy feat, but it's perfect for people who want to keep up to date with what’s going on, but don’t have time to fit it into their busy schedules.

In an email exchange, Chartbeat defined engagement as "the amount of time, measured in seconds, that a person is actively interacting with their browser. While a user is reading a page, we count up the amount of time s/he spends with the page in an active browser tab -- a foregrounded tab where the user has scrolled, typed, navigated, or moved their mouse in the last few seconds."

Here's Why Landlines Will Die, And Its Replacement Beats Cell Phones

Here's Why Landlines Will Die, And Its Replacement Beats Cell Phones | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
Here's what's happening: Twenty years ago, the cell phone made its debut and started to phase out landlines everywhere. Now, landlines still exist, but its infrastructure can hardly be supported and is often failing. With the current landline exodus, even today's outrageous pricing is unsustainable. Even though smartphones dominate telecommunications, there’s now a smarter, more efficient solution that carriers don’t want you to know about.

It’s called VoIP and it’s changing the way we use phone services in our own homes.

How big is this change? Millions of homes have already switched over to this new phone service. More than 200 international airports are utilizing VoIP, and already 79% of businesses are as well.

 The $250 Blanket That Went Viral and Raised Millions On Kickstarter

 The $250 Blanket That Went Viral and Raised Millions On Kickstarter | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
It’s not every day that one tries to fall asleep in the middle of the work day, swaddled in the warm embrace of a 20 pound blanket that costs almost $300 (it was $279 but is now on sale for $250). That day came for me this week when I tried out the viral internet sensation that is the Gravity blanket.

It feels like what you might guess a soft mass of 20 pounds evenly spread across your body to feel like: the pressure is not uncomfortable, but it’s certainly there. I often kick and thrash in my sleep, but the blanket’s pressure made it difficult to move, but not in a bad way. The blanket was a velvety presence saying sternly, but lovingly, be still. Though I am not a good napper, enveloped by the unbelievably heavy blanket, I actually fell asleep.

Adobe launches a cloud-centric redesign of Lightroom CC

Adobe launches a cloud-centric redesign of Lightroom CC | Social  Buzzr | Scoop.it
While Photoshop is Adobe’s flagship product for photographers, its photo management and editing tool Lightroom is probably even more popular among photographers as it allows them to easily manipulate the color and other aspects of their photos. Today, Adobe is launching a completely new version of Lightroom CC that will come as a shock to current Lightroom users. The new Lightroom puts an emphasis on ease of use and cloud connectivity while the old version focused on hard drive-based storage and spawned a cottage industry of YouTube explainers.

I have little doubt that this move will create tremors in the photography community, but let’s get this right out of the way: the Lightroom you currently love (or hate) isn’t going away. It’ll be rebranded as Lightroom CC Classic and Adobe promises that it’ll keep investing in it. Indeed, to underline this point, the company is launching a new version today that, among other things, promises signi
