Pinterest does a twitter, rolls out new animated Follow Pin // #plbkkt

After Twitter, it’s Pinterest now to have gone the animated way with the launch of the new animated “Follow Pin”. The new feature will unveil a pop-up preview window of feature Pins from the bottom of the user’s window so that “your visitors won’t ever have to leave your website to follow you” as quoted by Jason Costa Pinterest product manager.

Pinterest informs that most sites would be automatically updated with the new feature others can implement using the Pinterest widget builder. Pinterest is still yet to be a commercial vehicle in itself further informs that the new Follow button will be available just like all the other impressionist features.

We are hoping the new Pinterest Follow pin feature laded with animation support for an interactive experience without having to leave the display website will feed automatically on our blogger profile #plbkkt // pallab-kakoti.blogspot.com

Pinterest, the image-based social network now riding on a $5 billion valuation and 60 million monthly active users (per comScore), has been making a lot of moves to improve how people discover and navigate content on its own site, but today it unveiled an updated, animated Follow pin that it hopes will be used to snag in more users when they are somewhere else on the net.

Designed for businesses and brands, Pinterest’s new Follow button is actually more than a simple button that will take you to the brand’s Pinterest page; instead, it prompts a pop-up preview, which will feature Pins from the account in question that float up, one by one, from the bottom of the window.

There are a couple of things going on here.

By offering users a preview pane with Pins, it will potentially entice more people to follow the brand, given that they will have a…

Over the last several years, social media has emerged as an effective tool for generating leads. Two-thirds of online adults use social networking, and almost half use it daily. …….image edited by #blogs4bytes

The use of social media platforms by sales people to generate leads and convert them into successful B2B conversions to generate revenue is summed as the concept of social selling. It’s an approach that leverages the use of various social media tools to filter targeted information based on locations, business verticals & social media profiles. The process enables sales professionals to post social updates, tweets & messages on the social media domain from their personal accounts to build their credibility as industry experts.

Some may see conversion as an online transaction, others as a sign up or an upgrade to a paid plan. Conversion objectives vary and are therefore crucial to define the attributes for different referrers & social networks. Determine the original referrer as the first touch attribution where they first heard & saw the social content or was it the referrer of the visit where the story was seen and where the actual conversion occurred as the last touch attribution.

Retweet with Comment // #hshdsh update on Twitter

Retweet with Comment // New Twitter feature update via #hshdsh

Twitter is working on a new feature that will allow users to “Retweet with comment” so that the original reference of the share is visible in context with the comment tweet.

The earlier feature “Quote the tweet” offers only limited characters since the retweet update takes up most of the 140 characters.

The objective with the new feature is to foster the continuity, relevance & context of social conversations without detracting from the length allotted for a response.

Officially Twitter refused to make any comments about the new feature “Retweet with comment” so until they do so we have ambiguity in play.

Comments made on the credible source of this new update indicate that Twitter users are warmly applauding this new inclusion if at all it makes it’s debut sometime soon!

The best thing about Twitter is that it forces users to embrace brevity thanks to its 140-character updates. It’s also the worst thing about Twitter, turning loquacious tweeters into Twitter stream hogs – as with the disaster that is the multi-part running commentary known as the Tweetstorm. But now Twitter is experimenting with a new feature called “retweet with comment” that would better allow users to participate in a conversation, while also providing context and commentary that can otherwise get lost when using the standard Twitter “retweet” function or “quoted tweets.”

In fact, it appears that the “retweet with comment” feature would replace the latter “quote tweet” option, which today often requires users to truncate the original tweet in order to add their own two cents.

retweetwithcommentOh, in case all this Twitter terminology has you lost:

A Twitter retweet allows a user to re-post another’s tweet to their own personal timeline. The “quote tweet” feature, meanwhile, grabs the other person’s…

Slingshot slings hard at Snapchat

Slingshot slings hard at Snapchat

Slingshot slings hard at Snapchat after the former refuses the $3 billion deal from Facebook back in late 2013. The Slingshot app from Facebook is similar to Snapchat unlike Slingshot where friends can’t see the shot until they, in turn sling something back.

However the app was available only for a brief period on the iTunes App Store before the page went down indicating that FB is pulling the app back at least for now. A Facebook spokesperson later clarified by saying that they accidentally released a version of Slingshot, a new app they are working on. Slingshot will allow you to share everyday moments with lots of people at once.

And here’s Facebook’s description of the app from the App Store page that was removed:
(Source: https://in.finance.yahoo.com/news/facebook-tries-destroy-snapchat-again-201129833.html)

Slingshot lets you quickly share moments—little and big—with all your friends. Shoot a photo or video of what you’re up to and sling it to a bunch of people. They won’t be able to see your shot until they sling something back. Tap on a shot to react, or simply swipe it away.

• Stay in touch: Capture photos and videos of moments you want to share with friends
• Go shot for shot: To unlock new shots, first you have to sling something back
• Enjoy it while it lasts: Once you swipe a shot away, it’ll no longer be viewable
• Send a quick reply: After unlocking a shot, respond with your reaction
• Get creative: Express yourself with captions and drawings
• Look when you want: View unlocked shots later if you’re busy

Download now and give it a, uh, shot.

Facebook has been promising that it would “shatter itself into pieces” in order to better compete on mobile by breaking up the main Facebook app into mini-apps focused on specific features. Today, it’s making good on these previously stated intentions with a new photo and video-sharing app called Slingshot, now available in select markets. [See update below: Facebook is pulling the app.]

The app is designed to allow friends to share photos and videos of what they’re currently up to, by “slinging” that content to others on the service. However, unlike, say, competitor Snapchat, friends can’t see your shot until they, in turn, sling something back.

That feature, though a bit gimmicky, seems specifically designed to increase the viral effects and spread of Slingshot. By tapping into users’ natural curiosity, they may be motivated to share with a friend in order to “unlock” the new shots they receive.

using wordpress for blogsforbytes

WordPress can be a pain at times but pleasure most of the time

Using the free WordPress account can be a pain at times but pleasure most of the time of. Pain because you don’t get to add plug-in and the only option you get other than your post, images & media files are widgets. Blogs for bytes on the spectrum WP theme chooses to publish multiple posts instead of a static post/page on the homepage. This means that after a few scrolls the right hand column of the blog goes awkwardly off & portrays a blank view.

Tried embeds from other blogs 4 bytes managed platforms but limitation on the widget option limited any advent. Then blogs four bytes applied Flickr RSS and that was a task.

Google always and landed on https://www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157633923095086/ // enter Mike Kennewick – https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikekennewick/ // the author of this re-blog post to give the genuine push over.

And the flip side this is how things are. Got the solution after a few hits & trials! Mike Kennewick #blogs4bytes thanks you!

In the process also came across idGettr – http://idgettr.com/ created by Dave Kellam – http://davekellam.com/ // that use the URL of photo stream to find the Flickr ID number and groups.

I Couldn’t Find RSS in New Flickr Interface

If you are having trouble figuring out how to get the RSS feed for Flickr you are not alone.   I spent 10 minutes hunting around for a little orange RSS icon that is nowhere in the new interface.  Even after Googling I couldn’t easily find it.  Eventually dug into the page source.  I right clicked on the page at  http://www.flickr.com/photos/mikekennewick/ and clicked view source.  Then searched for RSS.  Interestingly in the header there is a link to the photostream RSS feed:
