6 Clever Tricks for Social Media Managers
Even if you're the ultimate hybrid project manager/content creator and community-engager, reality is, you'll probably develop Community Manager Multi-Personality Disorder (CMMPD)* at least once in your career. *We totally made this up. In my years managing communities for companies ranging from teeny startups to global soda and makeup brands, I learned one thing very quickly: Establishing systems and using the right tools early on can save your sanity (and your laptop’s RAM). Here are six tips and tricks in my medicine cabinet for achieving social media vitality. 1. Pain: So many accounts, so few browsers, so slow Internet speed. Every day, we log in to our Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr accounts, our work email, Google Drive and our internal communities, not to mention those of all our clients. Remedy: Behold, Chrome profiles. 2. Remedy: Download FoundApp. 3. Remedy: With IFTTT (If This Then That), you can literally put the Internet to work for you. 4. 5. 6.

6 outils de curation pour CM There's no denying that content is king online, but trying to create all that content on your own? It's exhausting and, frankly, boring for your readers and community members. Using content curation tools is a great way to find fresh content to share, build on, and even allow your community to join in on the editorial process with. Here are the six tools I find the most useful and powerful. - Leading the pack is RebelMouse - RebelMouse takes a slightly different turn, utilizing the networks you're already connected to and pulling content from there into a Front Page for you. - Similarly, make a newspaper styled front page out of your Twitter feed or topic keywords that you choose. Storify - A favorite of news organizations, Storify allows you to pull content in from Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, websites, and other services to create a cohesive multimedia story.

Flickeur - Every Picture Tells a Story Flickeur (pronounced like Voyeur) randomly retrieves images from and creates an infinite film with a style that can vary between stream-of-consciousness, documentary or video clip. All the blends, motions, zooms or timeleaps are completely random. Flickeur works like a looped magnetic tape where incoming images will merge with older materials and be influenced by the older recordings' magnetic memory. The virtual tape will also play and record forward and backward to create another layer of randomness. This principle will create its own sometimes very suggestive or scary story. Due to the open nature of Flickr I cannot guarantee what kind of images will be displayed, so there is a slight possibility that some images might be offending or show nudity. Flickeur is part of the NET.ART section at Art Tech Media 06 which can be seen in various museums across Spain in 2006. Flickeur by Mario Klingemann

How To Push An Infographic! - YouMoz So you followed everyone’s advice about moving away from manipulative practices and created an amazing infographic (make sure it's great and relates to your industry) to get great links and exposure. Remember infographics should be used as a branding and authority building tool so stay away from optimized anchor texts and stick with branded and safe anchor texts. Now that you have this great piece, you may begin to realize that making a great infographic is just a waste of effort if nobody sees it. Even if it holds all the secrets of the universe and the meaning of life itself, you might be wondering why it doesn’t get picked up as easily as you might have thought. Consider the question: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?". The bottom line is, when placed in the context of an SEO, you really only need to be concerned with one thing: when a tree falls, you shout “TIMBER!” 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 16. 17.

Circular Gallifreyan - Time Turners of the T.A.R.D.I.S. Circular Gallifreyan is a standardized version of the written Gallifreyan language as seen in Doctor Who. It was standardized by a fan, so it is not officially sanctioned, but it looks terribly cool. You can read a guide to Gallifreyan online or just read The Honey Badger's guide below. Legal Note! If you're reading this guide, that's probably because you found the original guide a bit too confusing. Letters Consonants Consonants take one of four forms and are modified by one of five different designs. When writing out a word in Gallifreyan, it is done based on English spelling with the exception of the letter C and a few phonetic letters (CH, SH, TH NG). 'Cat' would be written as 'Ka T' (don't worry about that a, we'll get to vowels in a second)'Sauce' would be written as 'Sa U Se''Thing' is written as 'THi NG', not 'T Hi N G''Shale' is written as 'SHa Le' not 'S Ha Le''Change' is written as 'CHa N Ge' and not 'C Ha N Ge' Vowels Vowels are a bit trickier.
