Re: The social media bubble, are you in it?

I totally agree with each point of Rosemary. Limited knowledge of things can spoil us. It is better to read widely and try to find out the best you want from it. Our own analysis of things will help us to take a final decision. I'm planning to start a social website on a vCloud Connector server, could you please suggest the positives. Different writers put forward different opinion; some prefers to write only positive but some are totally opposite and only born to think negative. It creates...

Re: How to leverage social tools to support a forum

Alex - Lanoba ·
There are some great ideas here. I particularly like the idea of posting hot topics online. Is there any way of automating that? Perhaps you know which blog engine is natively more social? In other words, which one requires the least amount of customization to be social? (e.g. PHPBB, VBulletin, etc.) Alex lanoba.com

Re: How to leverage social tools to support a forum

Rosemary O'Neill ·
Thanks! There might be a way to grab the RSS feed for topics that meet certain criteria...I'll have to look into that. It wouldn't be too difficult to manually Tweet out or post teasers to hot topics though. As far as which platform is the easiest to make social, may I humbly suggest Hoop.la ?

Re: Preliminary Data: How Social is Your Business?

Soulati ·
The confusion surrounding social marketing is palpable. Whenever I speak with folks they believe it's only about posting to Facebook and Twitter. No one really knows how to engage customers. Now that I am blogging and writing social media posts for clients, it's a longer haul to earn traction. People and companies are so behind and had they engaged 3 years ago when everyone was excited to like, share, follow it would be easier today.

Re: Preliminary Data: How Social is Your Business?

LinkedIn share button is coming...meanwhile, you can copy paste the URL into the LinkedIn post box and it should work fine (should you be so inclined). And I totally agree that confusion is rampant right now. Seeing the data from this study really gives perspective on how many folks are still figuring it out as they go.

Re: European (and Product) Expansion

Slaz ·
Ireland is apparently popular for multinationals setting up their European HQ. Corporate taxes are relatively favorable and as a bonus, it's English speaking and has the Euro as currency (accepted in about the rest of Europe) as opposed to the British pound. No wonder tech companies like Apple and Microsoft have their European HQ's in the area as well. It's also famous for it's pub culture, Guinness, and is number 7 in the list of most beer consuming countries. Sounds good to me.

The Difference Between a Feed and a Conversation

Rosemary O'Neill ·
Social networks can be depressing . Scrolling through a "feed" is a self-reinforcing loop, and you're being "fed" the pieces of content with which the algorithm has determined you will engage. You spend your time scrolling, occasionally flicking a reaction or typing a quick comment, feeling inferior because it's not your birthday, you didn't eat at Ruth's Chris last night, and your 2.5 beautiful children haven't won the gymnastics competition. Sometimes there will be a random, intrusive...

Well visiting America/Seattle depends on Elizabeths recovery from this Pemphigoid condition. It is so sensitive that we fear a prolonged flight may antagonise it. However people are supposed to recover so we will see. We would love to Amtrak it from Chicago to Seattle have va few days with you lot again then go back via a different route. Probably expensive but worth it.

Re: Can you create a community?

I completely agree with the post. Creating the community online is merely a way to HOST people in coming together. It allows connection,(eventually mine will also have chat as most of my members are either deaf or interpreters) People long for connection and having an online community that facilitates a place to meet gives deaf people a sense of belonging that at times they do not have if they live alone or have very little connection with people who are able to communicate with them.
