Social Media Notes (#51) – Links for the Week of December 1 – 7

Social Media Notes

Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& tech) news. Come by each week for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week!

  • Updates to Twitter’s reporting and blocking tools – mostly less steps to report/block and users who are blocked will no longer be able to read tweets form your account (though they could just log out and view it anonymously).

  • Maybe these don’t apply to you but Mashable’s list of social media resolutions for 2015 is at least a good starting point to think of ones that may be relevant for you! (For example I don’t Snapchat so snapping less wouldn’t really apply, but I do like the idea of trying a new network and keeping up with more LinkedIn connections!)
  • Did you see this week’s Cat Saturday photos?! My favourites are .. pretty much all of them! This is a really good Cat Saturday!!!

  • Have you seen Edmonton’s new augmented reality magazine – #YEGWeekend?. Download an app and place your phone over the magazine’s pages to get additional videos and information. So neat! Though I wonder how many would actually take the effort to download and digest a publication this way.

  • This topic is always interesting: How to become Internet famous for $68. Not that I’d like to encourage anyone to do this – it’s just a great read on how easy it is to do. The bit that’s most interesting to me in this article though is how fake followers will still follow legitimate accounts to make their accounts seem less fake, so some people who don’t actually buy their followers may still end up with a huge percentage of fakes without asking for it.
