How to Turn Your Facebook Page Into an Insane Traffic Driving Machine

With Lucky Sort creators on board, Twitter is officially a data company

Reblogged this on UberTechMedia This move by #Twitter is intriguing– they already have promoted tweets… GigaOM reminds us all of Twitter’s organic growth potential – #hashtags being the most prized asset underlying Twitter’s entire business model.

We all kind of knew that Twitter’s path to making money was paved with data, and the announcement on Monday that it’s buying analytics startup Lucky Sort makes it official. Unless I’m totally misreading the writing on the wall, this move is all about giving advertisers — and anyone, in theory — the tools to learn about what people are talking about.

Word that Lucky Sort is shutting down and that several of its team are joining Twitter’s revenue engineering department suggests this is exactly what the acquisition aims to accomplish.

As it stands, companies use Twitter as a way to track how people are talking about them and maybe, if they’re really advanced, do some sentiment analysis. If they’re willing to pay a third party, Datasift and Gnip are more than happy to broaden marketers’ views to encompass the entirety of Twitter’s data, both real-time and historical. What…

How is Social MDM different?

Intriguing post by Henrik Sørensen on Data Quality: “Every organization should very carefully assess if they are good at maintaining different aspects of their internal master data (Hint: Many aren’t).”

No Social Media No Hires

Mind boggling perhaps, but certainly true! Take some time to assess your social footprint & ask yourself – “Do I invest enough time in building quality connections?”

At The Mic

Reactions ran from disbelief to total agreement.  The issue was  a news story indicating that 25% of job seekerswould not take a job if they could not use social media.  Now on the face of this, and given our economy, this sounds pretty silly.  A pay check is a pay check you could say.  However, when you are on the job and your constantly  faced with a broken copier,  a computer with a boot up time you can track with a calendar, or a phone system that always loses voice mails, what do you get?  ..Frustrated.  Frustrated because you don’t have the tools to do your job.  

Social Media

The 25% who won’t take a job without social media access are telling us the world has changed.  The tools we need to do our job have changed.  Cutting edge is something every business aspires to be,  or at least…
