We ll have several perspectives on the topic, and we ll welcome audience participation.Everybody knows that the world of influencers is increasingly important, particularly as the cost of user acquisition has become astronomical.We ve got our own views on the subject in a report dubbed Gaming Culture 2016, by VB s own Stewart Rogers.Please save the dates below.We ll kick off with an event in New York City at the Breslin at the Ace Hotel on June 21, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Our speakers will include Francisco TheGameHuntah Albornoz, who has amassed a big audience on YouTube through more than 1,500 gaming videos and hundreds of livestreams in two languages.He ll talk about influence from a game publisher s perspective.Our other speaker in Seattle will include influencer Amber Miss Destructo Osborne, the cofounder and chief marketing officer at Meshfire, an artificial intelligence-driven social media management software in Seattle.Osborne is also the former vice president and cofounder at Head of Lettuce Media, which specializes in social media brand management and consulting.Currently, her social media software company Meshfire was listed by VentureBeat as the top-ranked social media management software for small and medium-sized businesses.In the last year, Osborne has also successfully switched Meshfire s marketing vertical with customers primarily in the video game and entertainment industries, such as Sony, Scuf Gaming, Bungie, 3D Realms, Wargaming, and Cyan Worlds.We ll have a couple of more speakers for each event soon.The price is free, but we ll be prioritizing mobile game development leaders.
According to a new study commissioned by the social media company and conducted by MarketShare, Twitter aided in the sale of nearly one in every 10 movie theater tickets in North America over the course of the last four years.So don t mind all the internal turmoil or nervous investor discussions around the Silicon Valley-based firm — when it comes to influencing the box office, Twitter suggests it s got things on lock.As per the study results, Twitter s effect was especially pronounced in terms of action movies.The reason for this, the study says, can be traced partially to the money Hollywood spends when it comes to advertisements on Twitter.But just as important is the influence wielded by the celebrities, fans, and movie studios who have their own Twitter handles, and provide ceaseless free advertising for their films.Those products, however, have since faded, and the executive who once headed these projects has left the company altogether.
Fans of Game of Thrones may have come to think of Kit Harington as heroic after watching him play the incorruptible Jon Snow for the past six years, but if you re a Call of Duty fan, then things are about to change.Infinity Ward confirmed Harington s role in the game Friday after a video published by Mashable earlier this week showed him recording motion capture footage for something using an elaborate rig that has been shown in production photos for past Call of Duty games.According to the report, Ritchie helped direct Harington s performance in the game.Infinite Warfare immediately made waves when it was announced in May, thanks to its interplanetary setting and an announcement trailer that was met with record disapproval on social media.Though Activision won t have a booth on the E3 show floor this year, past reports have suggested the game may still make an appearance thanks to the franchise s marketing ties to PlayStation.Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare will hit stores November 4.

View photosMoreA screen displays a "This event will begin shortly" message before Instagram Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Kevin Systrom announces the launch of a new service named Instagram Direct in New York December 12, 2013.Amid Twitter's ongoing struggles with stagnant user growth, management turmoil and a tumbling stock price, the advertising operations under chief operating office Adam Bain had been a relative oasis of stability.But cracks in the ad business began to emerge in the company's first-quarter earnings report, in which it missed its numbers due to weaker-than-expected spending by big advertisers and provided a weak revenue forecast.Facebook dominated, with 96 percent of advertisers saying they were likely to use it."We're seeing almost all of our clients shifting if not all of their budgets, then most of their budgets from Twitter to Instagram," said Chris Gilbert, senior social strategist at digital agency Kettle, which works mostly with fashion brands."We've had more emphasis on Instagram for the last year," said Jason Peterson, chief creative officer at ad agency Havas Worldwide North America.
Security researchers cautioned users to change their passwords and enable two-factor authentication, a feature that requires a user to verify their identity at login with a pincode sent to a trusted device.LeakedSource, a site that posted the data, speculated that the login credentials were harvested using malware, a plausible theory supported by Twitter s own security team.The purported Twitter @names and passwords may have been amassed from combining information from other recent breaches, malware on victim machines that are stealing passwords for all sites, or a combination of both, Twitter trust and information security officer Michael Coates wrote in a blog post about the incident.Twitter is the latest in a string of social media companies to have millions of its users passwords dumped online — 360 million Myspace credentials and 100 million LinkedIn credentials went up for sale in May.Coates says Twitter has been examining the stolen data from other sites and cross-checking it with Twitter s own records to determine which accounts may be vulnerable and securing them with extra protection, including forced password resets.Twitter recommends two-factor authentication, a strong and unique password, and a password manager to keep your account secure.
NEW YORK AP — Twitter is denying a report that credentials from millions of users were stolen or leaked through a data breach at the social media company.The website LeakedSource says it received a cache of Twitter data that contains 32 million records, including passwords.Twitter says that its systems haven't been breached."In fact, we've been working to help keep accounts protected by checking our data against what's been shared from recent other password leaks," Twitter said in a statement.Over a week ago, LeakedSource reported that more than 360 million records from MySpace were obtained from a hacking incident in 2013.The website has also reported that data from 167 million LinkedIn accounts were also affected from a prior hacking incident.
But the consequences have already been serious—likely due in part to victims reusing passwords between sites—and include hackers compromising the Twitter accounts of Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter founder Ev Williams, a multitude of celebrities including Drake and Katie Perry and likely many more less-visible attacks.Editors note: After some initial back-and-forth to verify Peace is the same person WIRED contacted on the RealDeal black market… WIRED: My first question, how have you got your hands on all these collections of breached user credentials?Most of the members went on to do other things and a lot aren t in contact, so there wasn t any consequence for his actions.Editors note: Someone using the handle Tessa has in fact provided 32 million Twitter users data to the breach tracking website LeakedSource.com.And in less than a month.Editor s note: WIRED requested evidence of that still-to-come breached data.
And in this article, you re going to learn how to do it in four easy steps.All you need to consider is that content on it s own is not enough.Your initial research is focused on two areas -- identifying influencers and identifying popular content.Once you ve developed relationships with your influencers, they re far more likely to accept your content ideas.Infographics -- When done well, an infographic can make a compelling piece of content.Sure, you can lay some foundations like following them on social media, commenting on their blog and interacting with their communities, but sooner or later you ll need to get your content where it matters -- in front of their eyeballs.
Did you post about your job or your relationship?You might answer those questions very differently depending on your gender.In a study published recently in the journal PLoS One, researchers used data from over 68,000 Facebook users to explore the difference in what self-identified men and women talk about on the social media platform, and how they talk about it.Researchers used software programmed to pick out words and categorize them by topic.That analysis found that men tend to discuss impersonal ideas like the government or use language associated with games and war like "battle," "enemy," "lose," and "win" .They also tend to swear more.Women, on the other hand, tend to use supportive words like "excited," "super," and "wonderful," as well as words having to do with family, including "sister," "daughter," "nephew," and "brother."Despite those differences, an additional analysis found that the language used by men and women was equally assertive.While the findings are intriguing, the study has several limitations.First of all, the researchers' analysis captured tendencies.There's plenty of linguistic variability across all genders.Study participants average age: 26 also had to download an app and grant it permission to view their status messages, and only users who had posted at least 1,000 words across all their status updates were included.So this is hardly a random cross-section.And before anyone thinks of extrapolating what researchers observed on Facebook to real life, remember: Most people behave differently online.Read the original article on Tech Insider.More from Tech Insider: Motorola announced the first major smartphone without a headphone jack Lenovo just launched a massive smartphone with crazy Google tech in itHere's why almost no one you know got the flu this yearYou can make quick, easy cakes in a coffee mug — here s howThe actor behind Jon Snow will be in one of the year's biggest video gamesNOW WATCH: This new Facebook feature stalks you all over the internet — here s how to turn it offLoading video...
By 2020, internet video traffic will represent 82% of all consumer internet traffic, according to forecasts from the Cisco Visual Networking Index.It could also help Facebook catch up, yes catch up, to Snapchat in terms of daily videos viewed on the social media platform.The new feature was developed at Facebook s 50th Hackathon, according to a company blog post.The team that built what would become the video comments feature included core hackers: Bob Baldwin who led the initiative with Hermes Pique and Sameer Madan working on iOS, Muhammed Ibrahim focused on the Web, and Billy Ng on Android.Baldwin previously led teams at Facebook Hackathons who developed features that previously allowed Facebook users to include photos or stickers in comment threads.If this feature had been live during the Ice Bucket Challenge, the viral video meme launched to help raise funds to cure ALS, it could have resulted in the world s longest comment thread.
And it has its own news agency, Amaq, which breaks stories for a global audience.NU was originally founded to stem the spread of Wahhabism, a militant, ultra-conservative version of Islam that originated in Saudi Arabia.In Indonesia, Nuraniyah said, jihad is a social activity — not just a social media activity.Nuraniyah argues that such radicalizing activities must somehow be disrupted or limited in order to stem the growth of ISIS.When the Indonesian government decided to block access to some two dozen websites last year due to their radical content, it did so with a clumsy hand that caused a major public backlash.That uproar illustrates the challenges that await any broad government efforts to quash non-violent extremism, Nuraniyah said.
Its full version is already the third most trafficked website online, but Facebook isn t stopping its quest for world domination at only developed nations.Last year, the social media giant launched Facebook Lite, an app designed to give people a faster experience on slower mobile networks, and 12 months later, the app has met with quite a bit of success in a number of countries where high speed internet is a rare commodity.Moreover, in Equatorial Guinea, Comoros, and Timor Leste, users open Facebook Lite more often than they do the regular Facebook app, demonstrating just how prevalent this less data-heavy version is becoming.Indeed, because Facebook Lite purports to work in all network conditions, the app has seen considerable penetration in various global markets, with users in South America and Southeast Asia also frequenting this version.While just 0.5 percent of Android devices in India had the app installed in June 2015, by May of this year, this number had grown over 16-fold, with 8.69 percent of Android users installing the app.Of course, Facebook Lite hasn t had as much traction in countries like the U.S., U.K., and Australia, but still, download numbers have increased steadily since the app s initial launch.
Yet another report has emerged that your social media password is at the risk of being sold on the dark web.Twitter has denied its systems were breached by hackers with the company s security boss Michael Coates confirming it was working with Leaked Source to obtain more information.In fact, we ve been working to help keep accounts protected by checking our data against what s been shared from recent other password leaks.It is not yet clear whether the list is genuine but Leaked Source suggests users data was stolen by malware – based on the fact that many of the stolen passwords were displayed in plaintext.The explanation for this is that tens of millions of people have become infected by malware, and the malware sent every saved username and password from browsers like Chrome and Firefox back to the hackers from all websites including Twitter, Leaked Source added in its blog.Data breach or not, if this has got you worried, then it s better to stay safe and change your password immediately.
More Charts   Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat are some of the largest social media platforms in the world.But when it comes to online shoppers, they're no match to Pinterest.According to data from Kleiner Perkins' 2016 Internet Trends report, charted for us by Statista, Pinterest was the most popular social media platform among online shoppers, with 55% of US internet users picking it as their top choice.Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all lagged way behind, with Snapchat only drawing 3% of the responses.The report pointed out that Pinterest works well for shopping and finding products because of its image-based design.According to the report, 55% of US internet users indicated their primary use of Pinterest is for finding/shopping for products.NOW WATCH: Researchers built a robot hand that mimics human dexterity and learns on its ownLoading video...
Facebook finally made a modern way to view panoramas and VR photos with your phone.People who see a 360 photo with the compass icon can scan around it by tilting their phone or click/tap-and-dragging.Facebook already has celebrities and publishers lined up to share 360 photos.Facebook s history as place to upload user generated content could help it win this frontier of social media.But if great 360 content becomes prevalent on Facebook, it could give users another reason to keep coming back each day.Facebook announced the new feature last month alongside the fact that the Samsung Gear VR has 1 million monthly users.
Except in relation to eCommerce.It wasn't so long ago that buy buttons, and other forms of direct buying, dominated the news around social networks.Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter all launched buy buttons in the last couple of years.It's just a strange notion; that users will go from swimming through various gossip and memes in their newsfeed, maybe sharing a couple of posts, or doling out some Happy bday!Twitter apparently reckoned with this disconnect last month, when it pulled out of buy buttons, but other networks, like Pinterest and Instagram, are still full speed ahead.Though this development seems more in line with Facebook's other efforts to pay content owners on its site, the notion of users visiting social networks to spend money is an odd one.
Another day, another report that your social-media password could now be for sale on the dark web: a hacker claims to be selling 32 million Twitter log-ins.A Twitter official tweeted about the hack and is confident that Twitter s systems weren t breached, which is sort of comforting, but ultimately useless if indeed someone out there is about to buy our password anyway and it s all because we also use the same one for LinkedIn.The log-ins probably came from malware on Firefox and Chrome instead of being taken directly from Twitter, according to LeakedSource, which, again, doesn t help much if your password is among the ones up for sale.We have investigated reports of Twitter usernames/passwords on the dark web, and we're confident that our systems have not been breached.With big leaks providing passwords and yes, the most popular ones in today s case were 123456' and password for multiple sites, it seems like hacking is easier than ever now.Wait long enough, and it s only a matter of time before enough cross-referencing between leaks just does the trick.
When you depend on public transportation to get you to work and other important places, it can cause serious issues when it's late.If you're waiting for a bus or a train that's running late, you usually don't even know that it's going to be late until the time passes.Transport for London who manages the city's subway system understands this issue all too well, and is turning to Twitter to help.Transportation for London is no stranger to the social media platform.It already operates Twitter accounts for four different subway lines, which they use to inform people about disruptions and other news about the specific lines.By alerting passengers of a delay before they arrive at the station, this will allow them to arrange alternate transportation, if they need to get somewhere by a very specific time.

Google has an established reputation for guiding internet users towards sources with the most accurate and relevant information on the web.The Facebook News funnelThe internet has undoubtedly expanded the world as we know it, allowing us to access information that would otherwise be limited to specific regions of the planet.To continue the railroad metaphor, consider social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to be like popular highly-trafficked train platforms.Rather, they claim, management is guiding employees to fiddle with the results, showing only what the company thinks users want to see.Google zooms inGoogle launched its newest feature earlier this month: a Local Source tag, which when selected, provides the user with links to news coverage from local news sources.If they so choose, readers can broaden their perspective ironically, by narrowing the geographical scope with just the click of a button, like the creators of the Internet had intended.
New images of what looks to be the OnePlus 3 have surfaced online, giving us vital clues as to what we should expect from the phone.The shots – which appear to be official marketing images for a OnePlus 3 case – were posted on Android Headlines, and are sourced from Chinese social media site Weibo.Encouragingly, the newly leaked renders resemble all of the phone leaks we ve seen so far.The design of the images also appears to fall in line with existing OnePlus marketing materials.As we expected, it seems that the OnePlus 3 will look very similar to the OnePlus 2 from the front.Of course, we can t actually verify these images, so take this report with due caution.
This was the realm of unmanaged work.To improve productivity and take advantage of the 80 percent of dark data, from unstructured sources such as audio and video files and even social media, we must now move into a new age of cognitive assisted work.To appreciate the opportunity that cognitive computing presents, we need to step back about 250 years to consider the Industrial Revolution.Suddenly, factories sprung up, and people were physically able to do more — beyond what their physical muscles enabled.Coupled with gasoline engines and mass production techniques, the electrification era took human productivity to new heights.A version of this blog appeared on IBM s Systems Blog on May 4, 2016.
You do what you are told and don t have any say in the company s strategy and operations.And yet our 20-somethings in the company really pushed me to use that more.The job of manager today is to lead, articulate goals, inspire, motivate, and enable.Through email, internal social media, and idea exchanges, companies can have everyone participate in problem solving.In February, IBM made a big decision, to revamp its global performance evaluation system, by crowdsourcing the solution.It explained the deficiencies of its old system to its 380,000 employees in 170 countries through its internal social media platform and asked them to suggest solutions.
I wrote an email news bulletin also posted as a blog and got maybe 3000 people on the mailing list through social media advertising to a sign up page.The statistics show that nobody ever shared it and I got no new sign-ups except through my advertising.I felt the newsletter was a failure and I stopped writing it.Over 100 people took the initiative and wrote to me, some multiple times, saying the news bulletin wasn't including them anymore for some reason and they really wanted to get back on.So my question is if it was that helpful that 100 people out of 3000 would write to me and ask about why I stopped sending it, why the heck did none of them ever share it?I even wrote at the top of every newsletter please share this if you like it, or contact me to volunteer to write for it or translate it.
The move comes just a few days ahead of Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference WWDC to be held in San Francisco, where it is likely to unveil the new iOS iteration, a Bluetooth speaker powered by Siri and updated MacBook Pro.Why advertise with usPhil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of marketing, told the Telegraph that paid search ads would be chosen in an auction process, similar to what Google has been using where the developers have to pay to have their apps shown in search results.This would help developers to focus on their marketing budgets.The marketing budgets of developers are spent on social media or online adverts, areas which turned out to be less effective, Schiller argued.Developers would be able to make more money if they manage to hold on to customers for more than a year.Schiller said Apple has improved the app review process to check the app before download for malicious code, faults and other things.
Minutes after receiving Barack Obama s presidential endorsement, Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton reached deep into the recesses of internet meme culture to sling the following insult at the universally beloved de facto GOP nominee, Donald Trump:Clinton s statement was sent in response to this one from Trump:Aren t social media-era elections fun?We look forward to an all-out meme brawl in the coming months between the two candidates, until this absolutely absurd election year finally comes crashing to an end.
With the internet still, well... existing, we ve been seeing a lot of suspicious photos in our social media streams.The cave is real, and you can find plenty of photos and videos of it online.Oldpicsarchive, which is arguably one of the worst OMGHISTORY Twitter accounts out there, has cropped the photo more tightly to give people less context.Sure, Donald Trump is arguably the most racist major presidential candidate that the United States has seen in half a decade.Also, I m not here to judge, but eating food off of women seems a bit undignified for all involved.And see if she d like some fries.
I have seen a few tips and tricks to use social media to help get content indexed and possibly see other SEO benefits, but the best way I have found to make social media work toward SEO is to use it the way it is already being used.Another direct way having strong engagement on social media can help SEO is the simple fact that your tweets and shares are going to get in front of more eyes and are thus more likely to get links.Use social media to improve customer serviceToday, customers go online to make complaints or ask questions about a product.There are many companies responding well to this, which results not only in improved customer satisfaction but in SEO success, too.Some opinions expressed in this article may be those of a guest author and not necessarily Marketing Land.Staff authors are listed here.
Nikon has announced the latest additions to its professional ambassador program this week.This comes after Sloan was added to the company roster for Nikon s Photography Show 2016 earlier this year.Jeremy Gilbert, group marketing manager at Nikon U.K., said: We are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Peters and Helen Sloan to our Ambassador scheme.Brienne of Tarth Gwendoline Christie As noted above, Sloan is the principal stills photographer for Game of Thrones, so chances are any of the images you have seen circulating the web came from her.You can think of Nikon s ambassador program similarly to Nike or Adidas athletes — basically these are exceptional and notable photographers that Nikon has signed to help promote its cameras and imaging products.Ambassadors frequently represent Nikon at trade shows, workshops, on social media, and of course, in advertising.
