Finnish startup ThingLink has announced the latest feature for its image-tagging platform, with ThingLink Tabs for Facebook letting users create an interactive Page from any photo. We first reported on ThingLink last March, when it announced a partnership with SoundCloud which enabled audio to be embedded within otherwise static images on websites. A few months later, we checked out its new rich media tagging technology, allowing for greater interaction with external media platforms such as social networks and video-sharing websites. This meant that users were able to consume more external content from within an image itself, rather than it simply linking to external content, and covers content held on YouTube, Vimeo, Google Maps, Spotify and more.
I'm generally a fan of Facebook . I only use it to keep in contact with people I actually know and hang out with in real life. And for my friends that live in other countries, it's the easiest way to share photos, videos, and other life events. That's why I'm pretty excited about the iPhone's Facebook integration in iOS 6 .
by Chad Wittman on Aug 06, 2012 Facebook recently announced a new targeting option for page admins trying to Reach particular segments of their audience. With the new Facebook targeting options, admins will soon be able to target a variety of options such as: age new gender new interested in new relationship status new language education new workplace new location (country, state, city) These new targeted segments open up a whole new array of options for marketers trying to pin point their brand’s message. Typically with brand new features on Facebook, comes new opportunities for early adopters.
Many of us spend quite a bit of time choosing our Facebook profile pictures . Dan Manina spends just as much, if not more, copying his friends’ profile pictures. A kind-spirited rivalry with a friend, trying to get the most likes, has turned into a fun exercise — Your Profile Pictures .
I think it’s about time social networks start paying more attention to WordPress and how they integrate, after all, WordPress powers more than 60 million websites today. Facebook just released an official Plugin that deepens its integration with WordPress and makes your life (if you’re a blogger) easier. And that is precisely why we’re here, to explain the features and how they work, in plain English.
As you have probably noticed, more and more blogs, e-commerce websites and all kinds of applications online are taking Facebook integration more seriously. One of those popular elements is Facebook Comments. But what you probably don’t know is that it’s not that complicated to add them to your blog yourself. In fact, I’m pretty sure you can be rocking Facebook Comments on your blog in the next hour or so.
You Like me…you really Like me. Wait. Maybe you don’t really Like me after all.
Ready your arsenal of funny viral videos, Sean Parker and Shawn Fanning have just launched their video chat and sharing network Airtime . Built on Facebook with a stunning $33.5 million in funding , Airtime puts you onstage with a friend or matches you with an interesting stranger. There’s no application to install, it works straight from your browser. [ Update : And today at the celebrity-filled Airtime launch party , Parker told me that iOS and Android apps are "coming very soon".] You could call it a more fun version of Skype, a one-on-one Google+ Hangouts with your Facebook graph, or the evolution of Chat Roulette. But what you’re going to call it is fun.
A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but to marketers using interactive image provider ThingLink, that picture could be worth a lot more if it’s on Facebook and created with the ThingLink Tabs editor. ThingLink Tabs allows marketers to directly embed into a single Facebook picture rich media links to content anywhere on the web can also be added, and marketers can use the photo editor to build custom, branded tags. Images can be shared with one click to Facebook, Twitter, or email, as well as embedded into any blog or website. ThingLink Tabs also features HoverClick metrics, allowing marketers to track engagement with the interactive components of their pictures. The company said ThingLink Tabs is available with its Plus and Pro accounts. Plus accounts include one Facebook page and 500 image uploads per month for $5 monthly, while Pro accounts, at $20 per month, cover five Facebook pages and include unlimited images.
by Lauren K. Gray on May 23, 2012 Facebook’s Promoted posts are live for some pages in the US, as of yesterday. And are rolling out to many more. Some are reporting that pages with fewer than 500 fans may not yet see the feature. This means pages can now pay to “promote” a post from their Timeline so that it will reach a greater percentage of their fans on Facebook.
As we all know, Facebook deployed the new Timeline Pages last month and, as expected, the first public reaction was a waterfall of rants about the new approach for Tabs. Marketers have been in a period of adaptation for the last couple of weeks, creating new strategies to improve their communications, adapting to a new marketing approach through more visual content and storytelling, and why not, what to do with Tabs. One of the most significant changes that came with Timelines for Pages is that we no longer have the possibility to set up a Tab as default landing for first-time visitors.
Hi Guys! Just wanted to let you know that on March 30, we will update this iFrames app to be compatible with the 810 pixel format (for the transition of all brand pages to the Timeline format.) This will not change any designs that have been created for 520 pixels— those designs will get centered on the page with white space on either side. Starting in 2 days, however, you can update your designs to be 810 pixels wide and they will display with no scrolling!
If you want to have a custom image showing besides the link shared on Facebook , you can do it by adding a simple piece of code in your page’s header section. Facebook link sharing is one of the best way to spread your links on most powerful social community platform. You should be careful while sharing links on Facebook as that link may become a branding initiative from your side. In that case, that link should appear perfectly on other’s home page as well.
The roll-out of Facebook Timeline for brands on leap day proved to be a showcase for brands that were a part of the private beta prior to the roll-out. One of the clear winners out of the gate was Red Bull . Not only has the brand done a great job of seeding milestone content since it's founding, they launched an incredibly compelling scavenger hunt that spans the history of the company and integrates brand milestones in a seamless manner with the hunt. By pinning the contest, Red Bull is highlighting the campaign for 7 days and ensures that any user that drops onto their timeline is met with an inviting opportunity to join the hunt. Terms and conditions are linked to an app that houses the rules of the contest.
Even though it feels like Facebook has been part of our lives forever, Facebook "pages" for business have only been with us for just three years. Businesses are still learning the most effective ways to engage with fans. The questions often being asked are: 1.
