ideaLaunch Round-Up: Nostalgia, Social Media and News Personalization

August 15th, 2011 by

Well, today is Monday. You know what that means: Let’s read some interesting stuff that was published on the Internets!

Every group of friends has that one person who just loves to reminisce about old times. Well, a new Facebook feature was rolled out last week that those nostalgic friends of ours are likely to appreciate. The “On This Day in 2009/2010” box has started appearing on Facebook pages. I haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing it on my Facebook page yet, but I’ve been reading a lot of comments from friends that have. I’m not sure what purpose this feature serves yet, but it certainly seems like it’s a fun one!

As if you really need any more proof, but Listening and Engaging on Social Media Yield Positive Results.  A recent eMarketer report shows that different industries rely on different KPIs (key performance indicators) when measuring social media success—impressions and “likes” being among the popular. But regardless of what KPIs you’re tracking, informed strategies can be created based on data retrieved by tracking social media initiatives.

Recently, a colleague of mine asked me how I stay on top of news and keep it all organized? Well, news personalization tools are ever-changing and there really isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to it.  There are a lot of tools out there, and while some might come more recommended than others, it really just comes down to whatever melts your butter—ya know what I mean?  Personally, my most recommended tool for keeping organized is Google Reader. I’ve been using it for years and I couldn’t stay organized without it. This post from Mashable presents some other great news personalization tools to use.
