A couple months ago, Panera Bread emailed me about using my tweet in one of their commercials. Now the whole world knows my love for Bacon Turkey Bravo’s.

What Tumblr did instead was to design a more thoughtful form of community engagement by requiring people to repost content in its original context rather than simply piping in an anonymous comment. According to Karp, this meant that people who had “put themselves out there” through a guitar performance or a poem were more likely to attract a sympathetic, encouraging community rather than trolls. He added that comments are “a second class feature” because a commentator is subsumed to a tiny text stream below the main piece of content. To foster engagement, Tumblr is instead choosing options like “Fan mail” which aspire to create more careful, thoughtful and elegant interactions.

Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day! #CMAD

Happy CMAD, folks!

Your parents probably still have no idea what you do.

image

And people who don’t work in social continue to assume everyone can do your job. 

image

But screw those haters ‘cause you’re awesome. (And everyone can not in fact do your job.) 

image

So thanks for entertaining us on the webs, CMs. 

image

And remember: NEVER FEED THE TROLLS.

Being marketed to on a social networking site can feel a little like receiving a post on your Facebook wall from your aunt asking if you’re finally coming to visit for Christmas.

Your job, as a business owner, is to be the coolest aunt the world has ever seen.

Saddest brand tweet ever

The culture of the digital age matured as you did. It took it’s first steps into functioning adulthood at the same time as you. As time went on, more and more of everyday life became digitized. You are the trial run generation. You weren’t raised before it or after it, but during it. You were the first to nose dive into social media without a handbook or sage wisdom on how to not make a fool of yourself for the whole world to see. Nobody told you how to stay connected to people in an age where we’re more connected and more disconnected than ever before. Nobody taught you how to network and make your life through the invisible underground pit of everything we have at our fingerprints. Maybe they were afraid of it. Maybe you are too. Because you are the generation writing this rule book, and the only way it can be done is by doing.

When I learned about debugging links on Facebook:

whatshouldwecallsocialmedia:

OK, I am apparently very late to the party, but this was a revelation and I can’t just not share. I apologize in advance if I’m posting something old. 

So you know this really stupid thing that happens with links?

It’s actually the worst thing in the world. WELL, to fix the problem, all you have to do is copy & paste the link here. Once you press debug, try the link again and all your problems should be solved!

Tumblr was nearly as busy as Twitter during MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday when it came to the sheer number of content contributors, per Union Metrics, a company that offers analytics for both platforms. The San Francisco tech firm says 1.1 million Tumblr users posted content with VMA-related keywords yesterday, while 1.3 million folks on Twitter did the same. Those figures may surprise marketers who view Twitter as the undisputed, dominant, social-media companion for TV watchers.
