For those of you that either don’t have the time or aren’t very good at using Twitter and Facebook to find the best or most important news of the day, know that you are not alone. News aggregation startup Nuzzel, however, does have a pretty good solution: Mooch off of other people who are good at it.
Today the startup is launching a new feature that will let you subscribe to email updates collecting the aggregated social news feed from certain influential people. The goal here is that you can benefit from someone else taking the time to follow and interact with the best news makers/sharers on Twitter and Facebook, even if you rarely use either service often.
LinkedIn has become the latest social network to solicit ideas from researchers to explore the company’s data.
Under the rules of the new LinkedIn Economic Graph Challenge, announced in a blog post today, researchers will submit proposals for analyzing LinkedIn’s vast pool of data on companies, geographies, education, and other characteristics of people’s work lives.
Everything you post on social media can and will be used against you.
That could very well be the premise of Chicago-based startup Geofeedia, a social media intelligence platform. It enables customers to act like law enforcement agencies and corporations to filter, analyze, and geolocate all their social postings on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram — and then to group and post them for the world to see.
These days, almost nothing is sacred. With social media becoming a ubiquitous communication device, there is almost no topic that isn’t exhaustively tweeted about, discussed, and debated publicly for the world to see. The very essence of social media relies on people’s willingness to engage with their friends, colleagues, and even complete strangers without any natural filter.
Actually, Facebook first launched stickers back in April 2013, but only in private messages. Now Facebook is rolling out the feature to timeline posts, enabling users to voice their opinions with a Pusheen cat, a smiley, or anything else in Facebook’s Sticker Store. Initally only available in Japan, the feature appears to be rolling out globally today.
Unfortunately, these stickers won’t boost your brand’s engagement stats any time soon — they’re not available for use on pages at the moment. Here’s a closer look at stickers on Facebook:
