For People who like Mail: Social Digest

leave a comment »

Social Digest - A Digest Of Your Social Network

Many people are posting on Social Media, and there are many who don’t want to constantly follow everything live that is said by their friends. For them there is now . Social Digest makes it possible to get a full list of all the tweets send by your social group, whether it’s the public stream, DMs or lists – which I’m sure Scoble will like. It also lists the users who were active that day. It’s like having your Facebook wall in your mail, although Facebook support is in the pipeline.

There is also integration for people who want to follow what their friends are listening to on Last.FM. The other service they currently support is Hyves, but I doubt that they will limit their scope to only these services.

For the business users there are plans to make it possible to get digests over multiple Twitter accounts in one digest mail so business users can do the due diligence over their multiple accounts. And after showing them the wonderful features of DataSift they are looking into implementing a similar mark-up language to be able to extract data which can be flagged with in the Digest. And I see further potential for integration with DataSift.

I’m happy to say that as the twitter whale in the pre-alpha I helped them discover many faults with the algorithm and forced them to turn the Twitter API inside out to be able to do some of the requests.

They have plans for a 2011 launch.

Twitter Turn Based Games #twitgam.es #game #social

chess piece

When I was shown this in January I wasn’t surprised to see a turn based with Twitter as the transport mode appear, I was very happy that turn based social gaming has left Facebook. The first step by was to implement a javascript based chess and checkers client which posts a challenge and the subsequent moves to Twitter via the public stream or via DM. There will be a leader board to track progress in the games.

The public version makes it possible for others to follow the moves of the people they follow by using the short link posted in the message, as seen below. And the private version doesn’t spam your followers with messages for people who don’t want to clutter their public stream with messages.

They have plans to launch in 2011.

Social Permissions for 2013

leave a comment »

Social Permissions fo 2013Last year I found myself overwhelmed by changes in the privacy settings in many of my most used Social Media applications. I decided then, what I’m going to tell you now: Just set everything to open, and don’t post stuff you don’t want on your??permanent??record online.If you are rather more lackadaisical to the issue of privacy you might want to try MyPermissions, which has an overview of all the settings.

Alternatively you could use PrivacyFix which can automate this for…

PeerIndex’s Perks only for the UK

PeerIndex’s Perks only for the UK

Lately I’ve been noticing that many of the perks that PeerIndex is offering only valid based in the UK, even if you are eligible for a perk you are unable to get it. The same is true for Klout, its perks are primarily available in the US.

A marketing company will start up in the EU, China who will use Klout and PeerIndex scores to give out perks to influencers. Perhaps that marketing company is you…

Best Time to Tweet

Best Time to Tweet

For those of us who care about reaching our followers when it suits them we can adhere to the infograph below as a general guide.

The problem for me is naturally 2 fold:

  • These stats cover one specific timezones: I work over multiple timezones getting engagement from Asia, Europe and the US.
  • Once everybody starts inserting themselves into these slots they become premium: How can I avoid being drowned out?

Posterous Trouble #twitter

leave a comment »

Posterous Trouble

After the Twitter  acquisition of Posterous – the service known for it’s ability to automatically repost to multiple Social Media Services – seems to increasingly be in decline.

After recent upload and mail issues, which both don’t seem to be fully resolved after they occurred more than 1 month ago. The API which allows third party apps to connect has unresolved bugs which make them unreliable.

Is Twitter in the process of killing Posterous?

Soon after Posterous announced on March 12th the FAQ announced that [they]’ll share instructions on how you can backup the content of your Space soon. This was a first hint that Twitter might kill Posterous, yet now almost 4 months their instructions have failed to materialize.

And today I saw that there at least is some development on the site. They released a bug where in the Edit tags field they return the table indices rather than the values.

Value of a Tweet in Understanding Customer Needs

Value of a Tweet in Understanding Customer Needs

Many of us value what we say a little too highly. And the businesses mining – trolling – Social Media for business opportunities are valuing what we say a little too highly.

We fill our streams with vapid content, that can be used to garner sentiment. However it will not pay the rent.

Tweets Offer Little Value in Understanding Customer Needs

Social media. A rich source of insight and opportunity for companies. Why, it’s an article of faith that customers are talking…on their terms…where they want. So get out there and…
