How H&M uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+

How H&M uses Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+ | Communication design |
H&M is rated as one of the world’s top 25 brands, so it’s a great candidate for one of our posts looking at how brands use the four main social networks.

Si H&M los usa, por que son tan receloso el pequeño comercio de hacer lo mismo?

Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online

Content Curators Playing A Larger Role Online | Communication design |

Tony Obregon wrote this piece on his blog - It was curated by janlgordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit 

Tony reminds us that content curators play a role in information overload - they take time to sort, select, comment on good content that helps keeps you current on your topic of interest.

Tony says:

"With the ever increasing amount of online information from social networks, the need for organizing it has never been greater. Look around and there’s no shortage of aggregation tools to help us filter out the important stuff."

Here's what caught my attention:

**In this world of information overload, there’s now a new layer in the media ecosystem: the curator. If it wasn’t for that person who retweeted the story in the first place, you probably wouldn’t have seen it.

**So naming the retweeters in daily promos is the right course of action. Twitter is like a fire hose and is selecting random tweets that would have otherwise been missed.

**Yes, they’re randomly chosen but I find a lot of value in them because they praise others for their contributions.

**It reminds me that they’re part of my network and I can appreciate their contributions that much more. I know when I’m named in someone’s newspaper it motivates me to continue sharing that type of content.

Tumblr announced on Thursday that it now hosts 100 million blogs.

A landmark in the history of blogging!

The company also released an infographic to celebrate the event.

I have very mixed reactions to this. The most negative reaction being how Tumblr in general is about the regurgitation of content (primarily images) without context or even proper credit. The fact that this is so popular is also a sad commentary on media consumers.

100 million blogs is very big numbers, which means our life has been changed by internet.
