Tools for Monitoring Conversations in Twitter by Brian Solis Originally published at PR 2.0. We all know Twitter is an essential example of the conversations that help define Social Media. What if we could find the conversations that were important to us, even if we don’t follow the people engaged in those conversations? I think it would transform one of the hottest conversation-based communities on the Web into a goldmine of information and and catalyst for forging new relationships.

Trafic web sur tablette : l'iPad et les autres Malgré l'explosion des ventes d'appareils mobiles, Apple conserve solidement la première place en matière de trafic web. Passant de 82,4% à 84,3% entre mai et juin 2013, les tablettes iOS affichent une sérieuse avance sur les autres terminaux existants. En juin dernier, une étude de Chitika parlait d'une progression des tablettes Samsung et un ralentissement côté Apple, mais l'actuel leader du secteur est encore loin de perdre sa place.
