Why Google Plus Hangouts on Air are the Next Big Opportunity

Why Google Plus Hangouts on Air are the Next Big Opportunity | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
What if I told you that you could reach your audience using video WITHOUT them being a Facebook Fan, having a Twitter Handle, Google+ account, signing up for a teleseminar, webinar or your email list?
janlgordon's insight:

This piece was written by Nikol Murphy for Curatti on the power of Google Plus Hangouts on Air an how you can leverage this in your business.


Here's the good news........


Nikol says::


What if I told you that you could reach your audience using video WITHOUT them being a Facebook Fan,  having a Twitter Handle, Google+ account, signing up for a teleseminar, webinar or your email list?


Email and blogs remain important but Google+ Hangouts on air are more powerful.


Here are a few of the many gems from this dynamite piece:


Google+ Hangouts are a video call for up to 10 people total, or just yourself. This includes the guest. It is a free service. At minimum you need a phone to participate.


Google+ Hangouts On Air broadcast your video call live via the web and your YouTube channel. Then it records and stores it.


When you broadcast your Hangout on Air, your viewers have a “TV like” experience. They are also able to post comments under their view of the video. This is so powerful!


Now instead of talking at the TV, you can talk with the TV! Participants inside the hangout can answer questions and react to comments live! For free! Essentially, you have a TV truck inside your computer now.


Why is this better than any other platform?

You do not have to get the audience to commit to you before sending out your message! They can watch your hangout and ingest the message without ever signing up for something. Here is your foot in the door.

GetVega is a Pinterest-Like Visual Clipping Tool - Check This Out!

GetVega is a Pinterest-Like Visual Clipping Tool - Check This Out! | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Robin Good: GetVega is a Pinterest-like visual clipping tool, which allows you to create lists and visual collections of commercial products while easily capturing selective info relative to each one (cost, size, weight, price, etc.). 

 

As I have been writing, one of the key next evolutionary areas for content curation tools, is the delivery format. It is on this front that there are lots of marvellous opportunities yet to be tapped. And GetVega is one of the first curation tools to do a great job on this front.  

In fact, one key feature inside GetVega is the ability to display curated collections in one of three different visual formats, depending on the type of list and use you want to make of it. One such display format is extremely effective and valuable as it makes it easy to "compare" products and info within one collection.

GetVega provides a Google Chrome extension that allows you to easily clip one or more images from any product page, as well as any specific product info text or video.

Check out for example this curated collection of iPad alternatives: http://www.getvega.com/list/4f030465e91683175200a750-do-i-really-need-an-ipad You can see at a glance the different tools and their key specs. 

 

Collections can be set to be either "public" or "private" and can be easily shared on 

 

Similar "product curation tools" include:
Polyvore, Wanelo, Bagcheck, Curisma, OpenSky, Lyst  

 

Recommended. 8/10

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

"Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the "channelisation" of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation..."

 

"Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero."

 

Key highlights curated from the article:

 

Curation of niche interest: channelisation

"...opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.

 

If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.

 

A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that."

 

 

The curator
"More interesting than the drive to smaller and smaller niches, which could, at least in part, be algorithmically generated – will be the focus on the curator.

 

If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.

 

...These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love."

 

 

Social Curation
"...Equally, groups of curators could join together to offer more regular programming than the one-off playlists of individuals, basically creating “channels” without any of the budget and monetary constraints of a real channel.

 

They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints."

 

Insightful. 8/10

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012?

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012? | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......


Excerpt:


Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing


The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -


**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.


There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......


Takeaway:


2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets


**2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don't want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.


**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.

YouTube Reinvents Itself - Massive Relaunch Focusing More on Curation

YouTube Reinvents Itself - Massive Relaunch Focusing More on Curation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Janko Roettgers wrote this piece for Giagom announcing YouTube's complete overhaul of its site.


**Putting channels front and center in an attempt to become the Internet’s answer to cable TV.


**The new design features a completely revamped home page that focuses on a user’s video subscriptions and pulls in video recommendations from social networks like Facebook and Google+.


Here's what caught my attention:


****The pages of video publishers are also getting a significant face lift, emphasizing the notion of subscribing to channels and focusing more on filtering and curation.


****“Curators are going to be be really great for organizing this massive amount of content that YouTube has,” said the site’s channels product manager A.J Crane.

Is Social Media Like Marriage? [Videos]

Is Social Media Like Marriage? [Videos] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written on September 2, 2011 by Aaron for his blog askaaronlee - so relevant and worth reposting today!


"Social media is indeed like a marriage between brands and customers."


By the way, this post is an excellent example of curation. Amazing headline, content delivers the goods, (a point of view, pulling pieces together that are amusing but is right on point).


We might have heard all of this, we may even know this, but are you acting on this knowledge with your brand?


Here are a few gems that caught my attention:


I love his example using Gary Vee's observation about business today being like brides and how they spend more effort planning the wedding than they do once they're married.


****Businesses don't think lifetime value can be achieved from social media


Great video!


1. Commitment  in Social Media


**Similar to a wedding, social media requires a commitment to your customers.


**It is about creating brand loyalty with your customers and one of the ways to create brand loyalty is to -


**get your hands dirty and really work on it to maintain that relationships.


**Listening in social media


He uses a commercial to show us what it would be like if a you're married and your partner never responds or listens to what you have to say. They just talk -

What Can Social Media Tell Us About American Society? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This fascinating piece is from Mashable


Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond"


Here's a fascinating glimpse into the America Culture and the impact of social media


Intro:


"What can social media tell us about American society? This infographic thinks it has the answers."


America is obsessed with its social media tools — more than half of all Americans have a social networking profile.


**But what does social media tell us about American society? Is our use of social tools a reflection of our interests and behaviors?


Social media strategy firm Hasai decided to find out. The result is an infographic that draws several conclusions about the nature of the average American:


**Apparently we Americans have a lot to say (48% of all bloggers are U.S.-based), love talking about television (77% have used social media to share their love of a show) and love video games (10% of all US-based web activity involves video games).


**Oh, and apparently North Dakota and New Jersey are among the most social states in the union. Go figure.


**Check out the infographic and let us know in the comments what you think social media says about American society.

Learn what a video infographic is, the benefits it can provide to your audience and how you can use it within your content marketing program.

 

Why do users like video infographics?

 

Infographic or not, it’s safe to say that video is steadily becoming a larger piece of the marketing arsenal — and for good reason. Our brains are programmed to absorb a combination of visuals, movement, and audio very quickly. In fact, according to the Weiss-McGrath Report, if you present information using voice and visuals (i.e., in a video format), retention is staggeringly higher after 24 hours. For this reason, and many others, video is simply the most efficient way for people to absorb information.

17 Eye-Opening Examples of Content Visualization (Infographics) | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

 This fascinating piece is by Pamela Vaughan from Hubspot Blog.


Another way to help people cope with information overload is by using visual content. Great tool for content curators after filtering, organizing, adding context is to break it up with pictures, graphics or infographics.


Intro:


Visualized content is popping up all over the web lately, and it's no surprise.


Here's what caught my attention:


"Does every piece of visual content you produce have to be as complex as a full-blown infographic? No way. And does every piece of visual content even have to highlight data? Negative.


****Sometimes the concept you're trying to explain just lends itself to a more visual representation, and these types of portrayals can often make the concept much easier to follow and understand by your audience


****the benefits of visual content are huge -- 

**it tends to be much more shareable and interesting


****visual content often gets spread more virally


****allowing you to extend the reach and effectiveness of your content.


What really caught my eye in the infographics:


I especially loved Social Media Transit Strategy and The Journey of A Tweet - what about you?

Viral Video Tips - Compilations: Using YouTube as a Curation Tool

Viral Video Tips - Compilations: Using YouTube as a Curation Tool | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

From the original article: by The Huffington Post

A popular trend is using YouTube to amalgamate a series of short clips into one video.

 

Take the adidas 120 edition video as an example which uses multiple clips of everyday people doing things in line with the brand message 'head over heart'.

 

The brand is acting as the curator for their audiences, and making the fans feel involved by including them in the video.

 

Another brand that has brought the fans into the video is the Google Chrome advert where they showcased Lady Gaga's from around the globe and made a combined video generating nearly 4 million views. This can play on nostalgia, for example the 100 years of East London Style video, this offers a quick snippet of time progression with is essentially delivering 100 years in 100 seconds of film which generated 2.5 millions views.

 

There are lots of examples of this being highly popular, one more example being the curation of 100 YouTube videos that combined to make up one Led Zeppelin song from fans around the world, which was featured on Mashable as their viral video of the day.

20 Stunning Social Media Statistics Plus Infographic

Great Post by Jeff Bullas http://www.jeffbullas.com/2011/09/02/20-stunning-social-media-statistics/


Curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond"


Excerpt:



Do you wonder why your productivity has dropped over the past 2 – 3 years?


There is a time sink and its not Television!


Those of us who are connected to the internet and that is 2 billion of us, have been distracted by social multi-media publishing machines that are pumping out staggering amounts of content with enticing high definition images and videos!


**You cannot escape their allure as they tempt you to log in when you are out and about with either with your laptop, iPad or smart phone.


**These enticing, tempting distractions are robbing us of time that should be spent doing productive work like washing your car, cleaning the house or doing your tax… and I know how much you all enjoy those activities!

Cull.Tv is The New Music Television

Very exciting!

 

Intro:

 

If you were around in 1981 when MTV first launched, you probably understand what’s so exciting about a product that focuses entirely on delivering music through video all day, every day.

 

“MTV introduced the music television format,” described co-founder and CEO Katherine de León, “and it’s not a mistake that we talk about Cull as ‘new music television.’ We have all the benefits that early MTV did not. We have technology and we have access to the best curators in the world, who are also the consumers, the viewers, the audience.”

 

“We really think of Cull as a curation engine: early MTV fused with Pandora-style recommendations plus curation tools so users can create their own channels.” On Cull, any user can create their own channel by searching for videos and adding them to a playlist. Or, if you’d rather just sit and watch, you can choose from any number of curated channels, like “Paradise” for disco lovers or “FatKidOnFire” for the dubstep generation.

 

Cull is the first startup to publicly announce having received funding from Tenacity Worx, a seed incubator founded by Allan Teruel and Renelito Delos Santos after the two were rejected by Y Combinator.

Great suggestions? The dude is actually telling us how to search by typing in a couple of key words. I expected something deeper.
