Mammoth – Evernote Meets Tumblr

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 5th October 2014

Mammoth – Evernote Meets Tumblr

http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2014/07/mammoth-evernote-meets-tumblr.html

Mammoth is a bookmarking tool that seems to offer the key aspects of Evernote mixed with Tumblr.

Mammoth could be used as a project management tool. To use it to manage projects create a board and share it privately with your collaborators. Then use the board to share notes and assign tasks to each other.

Applications for Education
Mammoth could be a good tool for creating digital portfolios. Students could use Mammoth to showcase examples of their best work in a nice linear layout. Students can use Mammoth to share their portfolios publicly or share them only with you where you can give them feedback.

SnapChat

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 2nd October 2014

My Note: Excellent article with ideas for promoting the MakerSpace

Is Snapchat a Business Tool? Yes.

http://www.inc.com/adam-fridman/is-snapchat-a-business-tool-yes.html

Snapchat is a Smartphone application that allows users to send photos or short videos to another user. But with Snapchat messages, they disappear after viewing–usually in just a few seconds–so they can’t be forwarded or saved.

how do you build brand awareness on a temporary medium?

Do you think a short Snapchat video of your CEO playing Halo in the conference room would be interesting to a younger audience? A VP sleeping in an office meeting? The HR Director’s bad tie or haircut? Scenes such as these are the coin-of-the-realm in brand marking these days–the way for you and your brand to be “not that guy.” And Snapchat’s temporary nature is the perfect place for such less-than-serious messaging.

You may find it difficult to engage your senior leadership–or other company leaders–in being Snapchat fodder. Or you may decide that producing short clips or funny photos just isn’t worth the marketing investment. Both are fine conclusions.

5 Ways to Boost Your Twitter Engagement

http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/5-ways-boost-twitter-engagement/

#1: Refine Your Twitter Bio

#2: Act Human

#3: Ask People to Act

If you want followers, you can get more of them. If you want shares, you can get more of those, too. All you have to do is ask.

Even big brands understand the power of asking for a retweet.

Your goal is to get more engagement for your tweets, right? Sometimes you just have to ask, and many times people are happy to oblige.

#4: Harness the Power of Hashtags

Hashtags let you interact with the most viral and current topics at any given time.

Hashtags can double your Twitter engagement rate, increase your number of followers and improve your reputation.

#5: Post Consistently

which offers easy approach to job search.

Please have the following article regarding LinkedIn and their approach to job search

Ranking and Networking

https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2014/10/02/new-rankings-system-linkedin-based-employment-outcomes-huge-sample

The new Linkedin ranking system (https://www.linkedin.com/edu/rankings/us) tracks the success of college graduates in eight broad career paths, adding weight for jobs deemed “desirable.” It lists the top 25 institutions in each career category.

LinkedIn is ranking only a tiny swath of the academy.

LinkedIn also released a social networking application for prospective students to chat with each other about colleges, and to talk with current students.

Looking for a job or internship? Try Coffee

Coffee (the App) Is the Love Child of Tinder and LinkedIn

http://contently.com/strategist/2014/09/29/coffeetheapp-is-the-lovechild-of-tinder-and-linkedin/

the idea that it would be useful to build an app with a similar interface to Tinder, but one that was dedicated to networking instead of hooking up.
