How To Plan The Perfect Social Media Strategy

There’s something exciting about going on a road trip. You get to see new and exciting places and have a memorable experience along the way. Of course, an enjoyable experience is preferred to one filled with flat tires, wrong turns, and a lack of gas money. Your social media strategy is no different.

When you think of the perfect social media strategy, you might imagine A-level content, an enthusiastic following, stellar conversion numbers and a viral reputation. That’s a great end game, but without the proper planning, you’re more likely to end up stranded on the side of the road than stumbling backward into your ideal result.

LinkedIn Will Pay Premium Users A Whopping $1 For Leaking Their Passwords

To settle a class-action lawsuit, LinkedIn has agreed to pay about $1 to each of the roughly 800,000 people who were premium users between March 2006 and June 2012.

The suit was brought forth by premium user Katie Szpyrka after 6.5 million hashed user passwords were published in June 2012. She claimed that LinkedIn was in violation of a number of California laws, in breach of implied contracts, and negligent.

LinkedIn agreed to pay $1.25 million into a fund, with lawyers getting about a third of that amount. After their cut and other expenses, LinkedIn Premium users will each get about a buck.

This topic has become a hot-button issue since recent reports have shown an overall decline in Facebook user growth and in October of 2014, Mr. Zuckerberg got a spanking on Wall Street when his stock dropped by 9.7% in some after hours trading.

Some blame these decreases in numbers on their purchase of WhatsApp for $22 billion, when figures were later released showing this acquisition only garnered earnings of $15 million during the first half of 2014 despite having 600 million users.

With their overall growth on the decline, more adolescent [...]

LinkedIn Partners With Evernote For Business Card Scanning, Shuts Down CardMunch

LinkedIn is shutting down CardMunch, a free iOS app for converting business cards into digital contacts. The service was pulled from the App Store today and will be completely discontinued on July 11.

To fill the gap, the company is forming a partnership with Evernote.

In March, the feature was updated to allow users to connect with people on LinkedIn via their business cards, without ever leaving the Evernote app.

Current CardMunch users will be transitioned to the Evernote [...]

Breaking Through The Noise

 

India Today recently reported that the noise in South Delhi, India, has reached shockingly high levels, causing stress and even hearing loss for many residents. It’s gotten so bad that people living in South Delhi for more than five years bear a significantly higher risk of losing their hearing that those living elsewhere.

The Ashram flyover, one of South Delhi’s noisiest spots, measures between 86 and 88 decibels during peak hours. That’s comparable to the noise you would hear standing three feet away from a lawn mower. You would have to shout to have a simple conversation under such noisy conditions, which brings us to an important [...]
