How To Make The Most Of Animated GIFs On Twitter?

1 Comment so far

Twitter introduces animated GIFs
Twitter timelines used to be woefully color-devoid up until only a few months ago when they finally decided to allow users to add images to tweets. A welcome change, no doubt. Taking one step further, Twitter has introduced another feature - support for animated GIFs - something that has been sadly absent from social media. Facebook doesn't support animated GIFs as yet, which gives marketers on Twitter one more trick up their sleeves.

How To Find Out Who Isn't Following You Back On Twitter?

3 Comments so far

Friend Or Follow
Social media is all about connections. But while Facebook might be referred to as an on-stage microphone, Twitter is more like a two-way radio, where businesses rely on interactions to grow (which is kind of ironic, considering it is Facebook that requires mutual consent for a connection). If you're active on Twitter, you may know that when you follow someone, they might not always follow you back. Well, you can use tools like FriendOrFollow to find out who isn't following you back, and who is inactive etc.

Search engines are great for answering specific questions. For example, a tutorial for building Android apps, weather conditions in a city, and so on. But don't you sometimes feel at a loss to pinpoint what you're looking for, and randomly sift through the internet for a chance encounter? Perhaps you need some creative ideas for your upcoming vocations. But there never existed a search engine that could help you with such stuff.

Until now.

When is the Best Time To Post on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest?

13 Comments so far

Best time to post on Social Media
One of the most important social media tricks I've learnt over time is to maintain a schedule. Not only will it bring consistency to your work, but will also save you valuable time. But sharing stories according to a schedule itself won't give you much of an edge, unless you know when exactly to share them. So it's not just a matter of doing some work; it's a question of when to do it. Knowing when your audience wakes up and checks Facebook can work wonders for your social reputation.

Marketing with Snapchat
Snapchat is an exciting new social media platform through which people can send photos and short videos to each other.

Click To Tweet - Create Customized Tweets
Tweet buttons on a website allows users to tweet the link to a post or page, along with its entire meta title. But the title isn't always what you want users to tweet, since it is designed with SEO in mind, and could look unseemly and out of place on Twitter. Instead, you might want users to tweet about an interesting fact, a quote or an opinion. Wouldn't it be cool if users could simply tweet that specific quote or fact by just clicking on a link or button? Check out how to create "Click to Tweet" links for quotes within your posts or pages.

Add Twitter Cards to Blogger Correctly

41 Comments so far

twitter cards for bloggerMost of you asked how do we add a "View/Hide Summary" link below our tweets. If you click the summary link it will expand and show the post description snippet, along with a thumbnail image, Page title and twitter account attribution. We achieved it by integrating "Twitter Summary Cards" with Blogger. Twitter card is not a new name because they were introduced last year and the reason we never talked about it was due to unavailability of custom XML tags in blogger code library. The image thumbnail tag provided by blogger is of small resolution i.e. 72 x 72 pixels and unfortunately Twitter still has problems fetching the thumbnail correctly. This made it difficult to implement twitter cards for blogger.

FeedBurner-Twitter Integration

A few years ago, Google FeedBurner had a Socialize option that let people share their blog posts (RSS) directly on Twitter. But this service was depreciated, and people started using third-party apps such as twitterfeed instead. While these apps work fine, they leave you somewhat dependant upon them. Now though, it seems Google is throwing a new line out for Bloggers who'd like to share their RSS feeds to Twitter directly, because the Socialize option is coming back! This indeed marks another step forward for Google/Twitter Integration. Now, you can share your blog posts (RSS feeds) to Twitter without any third-party apps!

How To Schedule Pins on Pinterest?

Scheduling pins on pinterest

Pinterest is a pretty interesting visual social network that poses quite a conundrum. On the one hand, the idea of pinning and sharing images, and interacting with people over these images seems quite appealing. But on the other hand, there aren't very many marketing features employed by Pinterest, which causes some small businesses to ignore this really useful opportunity. With Facebook, you can schedule your posts, analyze your statistics, and generally spice up your posts. Sadly, no such functionality as stock from Pinterest. Luckily though, there is a tool that will help you schedule your Pins, and enhance/analyze them for more effectiveness.
