RSS Feeds Directory for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.

RSS Feeds Directory for Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.
You can use this feeds directory to determine the RSS feeds of any of your favorite online service be it Twitter, Facebook, YouTube or something else. If you are old school like me and still prefer consuming online content through RSS feeds, this directory is for you. Most of the popular online apps and services – including the likes of Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, offer RSS feeds but the problem is that you have to be a near geek in order to discover any of these feeds. Hence, I compiled this directory that will probably help you find XML feeds for your favorite online services without digging into the complex APIs. 1. Replace “relevance” by either “published” or “viewCount” to order search results by the upload date or view count of videos respectively. 1. To get the ID of any Facebook Page, go to and replace Digital Inspiration in the URL with the username of any Facebook Page. 1. Pinterest RSS Feeds 1.

First step in creating a radar is a process of discovery Submitted by Howard Rheingold on Thu, 06/16/2011 - 02:56. Consider a topic in which you have a continuing, long-term interest. For me, that might be the use of social media in learning. You can start from any of the points I recommend -- search, blogs, Twitter, social bookmarking, etc. - but sometimes you can go directly to the stream you want. 1. 2.

Who Are the Real Online Influencers? [INFOGRAPHIC] As the web's capacity for pageviews increases, marketers are becoming less interested in reaching as many people as possible, and more interested in reaching the right people. According to Deanna Brown, the CEO of Federated Media, that's why context is so important — the ability serve high volumes of advertising continues to expand, but the real value for a brand is to surround its message with the right context so that it reaches the most influential people among customers. Yet, while most marketers agree that reaching influencers is important, they question how to measure influence and how to determine the most influential people online in the first place. Are you influential if you reach a massive number of followers? The infographic below, from influence marketing firm Crowdtap, sheds some light on the current predominant thinking regarding how to reach influencers. Image courtesy of Flickr, GOIABA (Goiabarea)

Audience text to live stream I think it's a bit easier to think of this as two separate parts - posting tweets, and showing tweets. To show tweets, you'll need to pick a way to isolate a stream of tweets and get updates to that stream when new tweets are added. Since it doesn't sound like you'll be following the folks in the exhibition, or adding them to a Twitter list, you'll need to tell your attendees to Tweet in a specific way, such as @mentioning your username, or tweeting with a specific #hashtag. To render a list of tweets containing a hashtag or mention, there are many options. Using this kind of setup, you actually do not need to do anything at all to let folks post to the feed - any Twitter client should be capable of performing the appropriate @mention or #hashtag reference, including SMS.

Social Media Companies: A Cheat Sheet [INFOGRAPHIC] So you're new to this whole social media thing. Maybe you're savvy enough to know your Facebook from your Twitter, your Pinterest from your Spotify. But what about Tagged? Xing? Never fear. This comprehensive infographic whipped up by social media strategist firm Hasai, below, serves both as a cheat sheet for the newbies and a scorecard for old hands; there's sure to be a stat that surprises even the most jaded social guru. Checking Usernames | Matt Massaro Check username? Claiming all of your usernames can help you in several ways. Whether you are branding yourself or your company going through this process can help you get found online. I would recommend doing both your business and your personal name. If you are looking for a job or are in any position in a company where people are going to search your name on Google you will want to make sure you own what is going to come up. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Quora, and even a bunch of other Social Media sites come up in the search results. You would be surprised how many people/businesses I help that have over 100 likes on their Facebook page and haven’t claimed a username for it. Claim your username on the main social media sites first. That should be enough to get you started…. and keep you busy for a while!

10 Ways Social Media is Transforming our Culture and World It’s 2012, and yet I feel more calm about our future than ever before. The Internet has saved our asses, and we should celebrate. I’ve been on the Web for a long time, but every once in a while I have one of those tremendous moments when I have a mental flashback to these last 20 or so years… It happened today… one of my favorite Adele songs, writ large in a YouTube fan culture spectacular. Someone had pruned the 71 best YouTube covers of the track from the 350,000 or so available. Woven into a mash-up of all the covers in perfect synchrony. A Snippet of Magic I think it must have been magic that produced it. I mean, even if I had the skill, would I spend that time on a small gift to the Internet? But that’s what we’ve been doing. Leveraging the power of six degrees of separation. Uniting in common purpose and effort in ways that we had been rapidly losing. New Possibilities Created by Connections 1. 2.
