    THE WAY WE USED TO BE

    We have gotten used to seeing major tech players like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google on our phones, tablets, desktops and within apps. We swipe, scroll, and even read via eye scan. Does anyone really remember what these websites (if you can even call them that anymore) used to look like? Take a tour back in time and see how far we really have come in the last decade of web design.

    MAPPING HAPPY WITH THE HELP OF SOCIAL MEDIA
Researchers at the University of Vermont are looking into how social media sites could help to map happiness. Using an algorithm they have dubbed their “hedonometer”, the team has used the sentiment of over 35 million geo-tagged check-ins and tweets to analyze the effect of location on overall happiness. Focused on San Francisco Bay, New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles, the preliminary findings showed that distance from home can greatly impact the happiness of the user.
While most are generally happy at their home-base, farther travels where one may encounter a new and novel experience often elicited the most positive of communications (“great”, “amazing”, “LOL”). Tweets from within a one-kilometer radius of home however, featured the most grumbling- likely because users were going about their boring, daily routines. Researchers expect that more in-depth studies will help to analyze specific locations (restaurants, bars, public transport stations, etc) and offer valuable insight to marketers as well.

    Twitter takes the Super Bowl

    The Super Bowl is traditionally the biggest (and most expensive) venue for advertisers all year, with brands laying down big bucks for face time with over a hundred million viewers.  However this year, amidst the blackout, Beyonce, and the Baltimore Ravens win- Twitter ended up as the place to be.  Off the cuff and completely free tweets from Oreo and to a lesser degree Tide, Audi, Calvin Klein, and Volkswagen garnered just as much or more attention than traditional spots.

    The Pope to join Twitter

    While Pope Benedict XVI tweeted using the Vatican’s Twitter handle this past July, he is now venturing out into the digital world on his own. 

    While the official name of his Twitter handle has not been announced the 85 year-old can just log on the social networking site for some inspiration- dozen of impersonators have popped up since the move was announced.  His presence on the Vatican handle drove an increase of over 50,000 followers so it remains to be seen if his solo effort will put him into competition with Twitter heavyweights Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher, and President Obama.  The Pope’s presence along with the heavy use of Twitter on both sides of the aisle during the recent US presidential election mark the social sites continued move from the fringe into the mainstream of the world news and culture.

    #EatDownTipUp to help out Sandy-affected eateries in Lower Manhattan

    Inspired by a Tweet from chef Anthony Bourdain, #EatDownTipUp has created a social media campaign aimed at getting diners to eat Downtown and tip generously at the restaurants affected by the storm. 

    The website allows the restaurants to share their trials and tribulations during the storm and helps to spread awareness to eaters looking to give back.  The campaign also encourages eaters to share their bill and tips online, through Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. Click on the logo below to explore where you can dine and donate!

    Twitter goes Wall Street- site allows ‘investing’ in users to monetize

    Twistock, a new site out of Russia, has come up with a way to monetize your social influence.  Similar to Klout, Twistock uses an algorithm to determine your individual social influence and from there assigns a corresponding amount of virtual cash or ‘stock’.  Using these numbers, Twistockers can buy and sell their fellow users (celebrities, politicians, and your mom all included) and ultimately redeem any trading profits for real-world items and experiences. 

    The site currently has plans to expand into North America and Asia (using Twitter-clone Weibo in China) but it remains to be seen if this mix of financial and social will catch on.

    PIZZA PLACE BRINGS SOCIAL MEDIA TO THE STREETS, LITERALLY FOLLOWS THEIR FOLLOWERS


    Pizza chain Mellow Mushroom has recently expanded to over 130 stores in 100 US cities.  In an effort to get closer to their customers,  the chain got physically very close with their “Follow Us and We Will Follow You” campaign.  Using family and friends as accomplices, the company stalked 20 people who had followed them on Twitter.  The best part is they chose to follow their followers wearing a giant mushroom costume.
