THINK Poster 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.

How Recruiters Use Social Networks to Screen Candidates Over the past few years, we've seen social media used in the job market in a number of ways — startups, small businesses and large corporations alike are diving into the socialverse to find top talent, and job seekers are likewise getting creative with social media. Social media monitoring service Reppler recently surveyed more than 300 hiring professionals to determine when and how job recruiters are screening job candidates on different social networks. The study found that more than 90% of recruiters and hiring managers have visited a potential candidate's profile on a social network as part of the screening process. And a whopping 69% of recruiters have rejected a candidate based on content found on his or her social networking profiles — an almost equal proportion of recruiters (68%), though, have hired a candidate based on his or her presence on those networks. Every week we post a list of social media and web job opportunities. Infographic courtesy of Reppler

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.

Cette théorie fut pour la première fois proposée par Howard Gardner en 1983. L'origine de la théorie Lorsque Howard Gardner publia son livre Frames of Mind: the Theory of Multiple Intelligence en 1983, il introduisit une nouvelle façon de comprendre l'intelligence des enfants en échec scolaire aux États-Unis. Une traduction française de ce livre a été publiée en 1997 sous le titre Les formes de l'intelligence (Odile Jacob). Il y présentait sept catégories d'intelligence. Intelligences multiples et polymathes Selon certains auteurs, l'existence de polymathes invalide cette théorie1.

Five-Minute Films "Digital citizenship" is an umbrella term that covers a whole host of important issues.

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.
