One of the key topics that we discussed was the rise of niche online communities and how this will impact financial services brands in the future. The current situation. Over the last few years there has been a rise in financial services communities that are on the long tail. What does the future hold? decrease in corporate communities.

[Twitter] Some Companies Finding the Energy to Use Social Media
During 2010, the report noted that 120 of the 287 businesses in its index participated to some degree in social media, using venues like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, with only 60 companies putting forth resources for the mission. In an ironic twist this summer, a number of utility companies took to their Twitter and Facebook pages, asking customers to conserve energy during a series of heatwaves. While some lines of business have taken social media and run with it, others have found themselves suffering a power shortage. Photo credit: powertochoose.org.

[Twitter] Should Newspapers Close Down Their Comment Sections?
However, in the past few months we've seen several news sites closing their comment sections citing poor quality of discussion and rise in popularity of Facebook/Twitter. Let's assume the cost of moderation/a community person is $60k with a further $40k in platform and miscellaneous costs per year. That's a total of $100k per year. Let's assume the typical online newspaper advertising rates are $15 CPM (cost per 1000 impressions). Every time impression is therefore worth $0.015 (more specialized sectors can charge more).

In a poor economy, many businesses may decide, like most consumers, to try to cut back by doing away with things that aren't absolutely essential. As a result, they may second-guess themselves, especially with regard to how they spend money.

[Twitter] Why I read 31 books in 2011
On Becoming Baby Wise – Ezzo (Thank you Stephanie Wonderlin for putting me onto this for Baby Espo along with some entertaining Twitter trolls). Exactly one year ago today, I read Arik Hanson ’s blog post on the 26 books that he planned to read over the course of the year. It inspired me to give it a whirl and see if I could read that many. When the dust and grime from the books settled, wound up reading 31 over the course of the year. You might ask yourself why anyone would devote their time to finishing a book and start a new one every two weeks and it is a perfectly good question.

[Twitter] Google+ Adds Ripples
Whether you were on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or somewhere else? Have you ever wondered where your social media posts went after you shared them? Well, Google+ is making that possible. It’s really a recycled idea from the Wonder Wheel. Remember that Google product? Not many people used it, but some people did. It essentially allowed you to search for a keyword then see what related keywords return in their SERPs. Then you can look at related keywords to that keyword, etc. Here’s an example. So what benefit do you get out of this? You can use it as another networking tool.

Most of these updates are small, incremental changes that go largely unnoticed. The major upgrades, however, receive serious coverage by mainstream news outlets and bloggers alike due to the momentous impact that they have on the broader web at every level. Though more than a year has passed since its inaugural rollout, the effects of the infamous Panda update of 2011 are still being felt today.

[Twitter] Bounce Rates High? Why?
This piece has a publication date of 2008, but even if the new visitors didn’t see that, the opening, which would have been fine at that time, was written when I was a Twitter newbie—not ideal these days! This problem was amplified by the outdated Twitter follower number I’d quoted. In that case, would they feel that ProBlogger was more of an authority on Twitter than Twitip? While it’s not unlikely that bloggers will read Twitip, that site is at once far more focused (Twitter tips only!) Most bloggers I know want to reduce their bounce rates.

The odd thing is that it has only exceeded that level once since then, and that was for a brief period in July.
