I reckon with such abundance of content everywhere, makerters are increasingly competing to grab the attention of passive minds. We skim through most content we are exposed, and colour plays a great role in catching our attention.

Keep Your Sanity and Prioritize Social Networks

Keep Your Sanity and Prioritize Social Networks | Social Media for Photographers | Scoop.it
Find out how to identify your target client and categorize social networks accordingly so that you can focus your efforts on the networks that present the best possible return on your investment.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com's insight:

Social media is not a one-size-fit-all field. What works for an industry or a business may not work for others. And being on Facebook or Twitter is not a prerequisite for success. It all depends on your audience and where they like to hang out.

 

In his article, Mike Allton shares the technique he uses to help his clients feel less overwhelmed by social networking. He calls it the "Three Tier Approach".

Mantenha a sua sanidade e priorize as Redes Sociais....

"OK, então agora que tem um site para o seu negócio, é hora de se manter ativo nas redes sociais. Vá em frente e crie contas, para si mesmo, no Facebook, Twitter, Google+ e LinkedIn, e não se esqueça de que o Facebook, o Google+ e o LinkedIn também têm páginas especiais para empresas que precisa ser configurado e estar ativo. Em seguida, crie perfis no YouTube, Flickr, SlideShare, Quora, Foursquare eo Yelp, MySpace, Bebo, Orkut, Viadeo, Vinha, Pinterest e Instagram, e passe o tempo, todos os dias, a seduzir seguidores em todas as redes. Ah, e deve manter-se atento ao aparecimento de novas redes sociais de modo a que possa juntar-se cedo e obter assim uma vantagem sobre a concorrência ".

This is the epitome in lacking integrity -- growing your followers naturally (organically as the gurus say it) is all about being their go-to resource -  no doubt about it. And, nope, I'm hearing more and more how many people know those followers are fake -- just click on their follower list and see how many 'eggs' and names with no profile descriptions exist....

ThingLink lets you add “tags” to your pictures in the form of links, annotations, videos, music, and more, and share the result on social networks. When people “touch” the photos, they have access to the embedded content without leaving the page.

 

I see a lot of great uses for ThingLink, one of them being presentations.  And of course, it could be leveraged as a curation tool.

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | Social Media for Photographers | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.
