It Should Be Called 'Social Helping' Not 'Social Selling'

It Should Be Called 'Social Helping' Not 'Social Selling' | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
Tell me the term 'social selling' doesn’t conjure up images of a hard- hitting salesman spamming everyone in sight with promotional messaging. Really, if we struck the word 'selling' from this description and replaced it with 'helping', we'd be much better off.

If you took the word 'selling' out of the term 'social selling' and replaced it with 'helping', would that be a more accurate description of the process? Contributor Bryan Kramer explains his approach.

Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales creates news service Wikitribune - BBC News

Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales creates news service Wikitribune - BBC News | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's co-founder Jimmy Wales is planning a news service that combines the work of professional journalists and volunteers.

His goal is for Wikitribune to offer "factual and neutral" articles that help combat the problem of "fake news".

The service is intended to be both ad-free and free-to-read, so will rely on supporters making regular donations.

One expert said it had the potential to become a trusted site, but suggested its influence might be limited.

Wikitribune shares many of the features already found in Mr Wales's online encyclopaedia, including the need for writers to detail the source of each fact and a reliance on the public to edit articles to keep them accurate.

However, while anybody can make changes to a page, they will only go live if a staff member or trusted community volunteer approves them.

The other big difference is that the core team of writers will be paid, although there may also be instances in which a volunteer writes the initial draft and then a staff member edits it.
Regular donations

A demo version of the site, seen by the BBC, declared "the news is broken and we can fix it".

Mr Wales explained that he believed the advertising-based model used by most of the media had led it to "chase clicks", which affected standards.

"I think we're in a world right now where people are very concerned about making sure we have high quality fact-based information, so I think there will be demand for this," he told the BBC.

"We're getting people to sign up as monthly supporters and the more monthly supporters we have the more journalists we can hire.

"In terms of minimums, if we could only hire two journalists then it would be a blog and not really worth doing.

"But I would love to start with a lot more - 10 to 20."

If you want to rank higher on search engines in 2017 then you need to implement these important on-page SEO optimization essentials.
nukem777's insight:

The internet can bring your product and image to more people than ever before. It does not do so automatically, as its search engines have to sift through more pages than we can imagine. Those who succeed in promoting their own page through increasingly specialized SEO practices have a clear advantage over others.

This New Browser Plug-in Lets You Access Millions of Scientific Papers for Free

This New Browser Plug-in Lets You Access Millions of Scientific Papers for Free | sociology of the Web | Scoop.it
If you're of the mindset that knowledge should be freely accessible to as many humans as possible, paywalls for academic journals can be downright frustrating. Now a free browser extension is promising to bust through those paywalls wherever possible.

Unpaywall was launched earlier this month by the open source not-for-profit Impactstory – funded by the National Science Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation – and it's already making a splash in the traditional publishing industry.

Install the plug-in on your Chrome or Firefox desktop browser, and it will start displaying a little lock symbol whenever you're on the landing page of an article in an academic journal.

If the plug-in can find a freely accessible full-text copy of the paper you're looking at, the lock symbol turns from grey to green, and you can simply click on it to get the PDF. If the lock is gold, the article you're reading already has an open access licence.

Digital: We’ve Only Just Begun

That thought comes from a recent Mckinsey Insights post titled: Think digital is a big deal? You ain’t seen nothing yet. Thanks to Heidi Schwende for sharing this article. Their research finds that digital…
nukem777's insight:

As digitization gets closer to full industry penetration, the impact grows significantly, roughly doubling the average hit to both revenues and profits from current average levels. We may be approaching a major tipping point, where the entrants start to lead the digital race. What’s more, the further digitization has advanced within an industry, the bigger the role the entrants play. In media, for example, digital newcomers now hold 54% of digital revenues, while in CPG they only hold 41%
