5 Steps to a Stronger Social Media Presence


http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/social-media/stronger-social-media-presence/

Social media and social networking sites present tremendous opportunities to all kinds of business, including web design. If you’re not currently active with social media you are missing out on one of the best methods for networking and for free or low-cost marketing.

Many designers who are using social media are not getting the most out of it. In this post we’ll look at 5 simple steps that you can take to improve your effectiveness with social media, regardless of whether you are already a user or if you have not yet gotten started with social media.

Step 1: Identify Your Goals and Priorities

It’s important to set a solid foundation for your efforts with social media by first defining what you hope to get out of it. This is a critical step that many designers and freelancers overlook. Yes, social media can have a significant impact on your business, but you need to have some direction or else you will be wasting your time.

Some common goals or priorities for designers who are using social media include finding new clients, networking with other designers, increasing traffic to their website or blog, improving name recognition and branding, finding a new job, and simply enjoying activity with the community of users. It’s possible to improve your business or career in any number of ways with social media, but you need to be aware of what is important to you because it should shape the way in which you use social media.

Step 2: Target a Few Specific Social Media Sites… Sigue leyendo

Finding a Niche as a Freelancer


Freelancing can be one of the most rewarding career paths in this technology-dependent age we live in. Earning your own money based on your own sweat and hours laboriously poured into your work – there’s just no better feeling!

What many beginners get caught up in are the details of their enterprise. Freelancing is a very general term and there are so many routes to take. You may ask yourself, how do I find a niche that’s right for me? How do I know what skills I will excel at?

Locating your Inner Passions

The most popular career path among freelancers is web design. It’s a skill that doesn’t take too much effort to learn and can be picked up in just a few short weeks of intense study. The pay isn’t too bad (if you know where to look) and the work can be very entertaining. Plus there’s always new things to learn and it’s an ever-changing industry.

However, this isn’t your only choice. There are many web developers/programmers and even writers who work freelance. You shouldn’t box yourself into the “norm” of the freelancing community – review what skills you have and can perform, then look for your market.

Another interesting career path may be into freelance Internet marketing. It’s a job which can be done from home or any place with an Internet connection, and once you know how to market articles and bring in traffic to blogs you’re practically a hot commodity!

TweetDeck Adds Posterous Pics, T.co Support & More


Multi-column, multi-platform social network client TweetDeck has issued an update that fixes a few bugs and adds “some small, but important, new features”. We’re talking support for Twitter’s t.co URL shortener, uploading pics to Posterous and even sending out tweets that are longer than the 140 character limit.

The update is just for the standard desktop client, not the “super-swanky User Streams Preview version”, but TweetDeck promises an upgrade for that is also on the way soon.

The first feature you might notice in the new TweetDeck is the “Trending Topics” column, which shows Twitter trending topics – or popular topics being discussed on Twitter – and explains the trends using WhatTheTrend.com. Sigue leyendo

¿Google Me nos obligaría a cambiar de identidad?


Una entrevista concedida por el consejero delegado de Google, Eric Schmidt reveló que el directivo piensa que en el futuro muchos adultos querrán cambiar su identidad, tras haber sido etiquetados en borracheras y juergas interminables en varias redes sociales, lo que incluiría al poryecto de Google Me.

“Algún día cualquier persona joven podrá cambiar su nombre de forma automática al llegar a la vida adulta para poder renegar de juergas juveniles almacenadas en las páginas de medios sociales de sus amigos”, dijo el directivo de Google.

Sin embargo, si se tiene en cuenta la cantidad actual de información que Google almacena de sus usuarios a través de las IP y sus búsquedas y el proyecto de lanzar finalmente una red social que funcione, Google Me, es como para tomarse en serio lo que diga Schmidt. Sigue leyendo

Facebook Launching Official Live Streaming Channel: Facebook Live


By Sarah Perez <!– –>

Today at 3 PM PST (6 EST), Facebook will unveil its new official live video streaming channel, Facebook Live. To kick off the launch, actress America Ferrera will stop by Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California and use Facebook Live to announce details of her new movie, “The Dry Land,” a Sundance Film Festival entry.

Facebook says that, in addition to special celebrity-oriented videos like today’s, the live video channel will also be used for official Facebook announcements, press events, live chats with Facebook engineers and live streaming of its developer conference, f8.

Live Video, Live Feed, Live Q&A

The new Facebook Live channel will incorporate Facebook’s real-time Live Feed technology to facilitate interactions between the viewing audience and the speaker. Facebook Live offers a feature similar to CNN Live’s use of Facebook Connect, which streams Facebook status updates in a sidebar to the right of the live video of a news event, most notably used for President Barack Obama’s inauguration.

The same Live Feed technology will also be in place within the new Channel, creating a “viral News Feed” story, says Facebook. Also included will be an “Ask a Question” feature, which lets viewers submit their questions to a moderator. We believe this latter aspect of the new service is brand-new and exclusive to Facebook, but we’re awaiting official confirmation on that.

We do know, however, that Facebook Live is the same technology Facebook used to stream the most recent f8 developer conference earlier this year – this is just the more formal launch of technology as an app.

XKCD-Inspired Cartoon Maps the World’s Social Networks [PIC]


Samuel Axon

This cartoon map shows the relative sizes of social networks based on real 2010 user data, and does so in a quirky and amusing way.

The quirky and amusing aspect is hardly surprising, because this map — titled the “2010 Social Networking Map” — was inspired by geeky-yet-popular web comic XKCD’s once sort-of-viral “Map of Online Communities.”

The original was made based on the whims of XKCD’s author, but marketing firm Flowtown took the idea and ran with it for this 2010 variation, sizing the various regions (each named after a social network) based on info collected or published by USA Today, Alexa, Compete and other sources.
