Oh, How Pinteresting! Yahoo Launches New Social Sentiment Slider It’s not enough to ask consumers to talk about your brand, Yahoo says. If you want to get people really engaged, invite them to weigh in on relevant content. That’s the thinking behind the company’s latest social feature called the Social Sentiment Slider, which launched today. Placed directly beneath Yahoo stories, the sponsorable widget asks a question related to the article and lets readers register their opinions by sliding their cursors across an interactive scale. For example, after a story about the future of the iPod, the Sentiment Slider might ask, “Is the iPod going the way of the dinosaur?” “It’s a new approach to social,” said Patrick Albano, Yahoo’s vice president of social, mobile, and innovation. Jaguar has signed on as a launch sponsor, but he said three other brands will be announced soon. As the feature hasn’t formally launched yet, the company said it doesn't have metrics to share.

YouTube Announces Addition of Channels in Late Friday Night Blog Post After months of speculation with almost no official confirmation, YouTube has finally announced its long-awaited channel strategy in a post to the company’s blog late Friday evening. The announcement falls in line with what had previously been reported in the press, namely that YouTube will be expanding its lineup of channels to include new offerings from a variety of partners, including well-known personalities and brands in the Hollywood, music, news, and sports worlds. “These channels will have something for everyone, whether you’re a mom, a comedy fan, a sports nut, a music lover, or a pop-culture maven,” YouTube’s global head of content partnerships Robert Kyncl said in the post. Under the new system, content creators—like Vice Media or the video game lifestyle network Machinima, for example—will have a dedicated channel on the site that they will control, continually updating it with video content.
5 Best Practices for Financial Institutions on Facebook Banks, often held back by industry regulations, are rarely considered innovative when it comes to social media. But Facebook is the perfect place for financial institutions to loosen their neckties, roll up their sleeves and show some personality. The Facebook community wants to connect on a personal level, rather than learn about policy updates. If you're involved in a financial institution's marketing plan and unsure of what your Facebook presence should like — or even if you should have a Facebook presence at all — take a look at these best practices. 1. Facebook — and social media in general — is all about connecting with people. "Banks aren't really the most trusted institutions right now," says Frank Eliason, Citi's SVP of social media. While Eliason admits much of what he does with Citi's Facebook Page is experimentation, he's found huge success posting content you wouldn't ordinarily expect from a bank. 2. 3. J.P. 4. 5.
