Wordpress “Like” Button within each post & 55 bugs fixed

August 4, 2010 2 comments

WordPress 3.0.1. brings a new social media feature within each wp post: the “Like” button.

What this little button does is adding the Gravatar profiles of people who liked your post.

Just a while ago, WordPress 3.0 brought us the Like feature on the admin bar but this new improvement is what I hoped for… or not exactly…

My question now is: Why don’t we have a FaceBook Like Button?

This new version of wp platform also fixes 55 bugs from the WP 3.0 release 🙂

1st FaceBook Conference in Romania – Connect | FB

July 25, 2010 Leave a comment

1st FaceBook conference in Romania took place recently in Bucharest.

Romanian Online Market is growing fast for a few years now, doubling the income from online marketing activities from one year to another.

As a result, more & more events are taking place, especially in Bucharest, dedicated to the online techniques, gathering key people in the online environment.

So, the first online marketing conference dedicated to FaceBook took place just last week and gathered about 200 online people in Romania.

Connect | FB event had two sessions: “FaceBook, from a personal perspective” & “How to manage you brand on FaceBook”.

Among the speakers:

Cristina Bazavan – Chief Editor @Tabu magazine – she had the greatest presentation: “FaceBook, seen as a Love Ritual” – a parallel between the FaceBook user’s behavior and the user’s offline love ritual behavior.

Marco Kind – Chief Marketing Officer @Vodafone Romania – he had a very structured presentation of past & future Vodafone Brand’s social media activities.

The first session, dedicated to personal FaceBook experiences, debated various topics: from the best practices on how to grow your FB community and how to build a long-term relationship with your FaceBook Friends to how to sustain social causes like preventing cancer or helping people fulfill their dreams.

FaceBook Facts & Campaign Figures in Romania for certain brands along with some very interesting presentations about Social Media Brand Management captivated me across the second session of Connect FB Conference.

This event was amazing – it’s great to gather up the online community in Romania in the same conference hall – Manafu Cristian – Managing Partner @ Evensys – always organizes the best Online Events in Romania.

Just can’t wait for the next meeting in September!

Why should you advertise on Social Media?

or

Why should you promote your business through Social Media Marketing?

Well, here are some of the reasons I found:

  • 22% of the time spent in the “online world” is on social media networks – you don’t want to miss the chance to be where your customers are!
  • building relationships with your customers, partners or leads is the biggest asset of your business – you want to build their trust in order to gain their loyalty

My vision on Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence

June 1, 2010 3 comments

Lately I have been reading lots of articles on web 3.0 concepts and visions of various online marketers.

The words “Semantic Web” and “Sentiment” are on everyone’s lips when it comes to envisioning web 3.0 new technology. One of the most fascinating articles on the web 3.0 features is on howstuffworks.com;  this article got me thinking to one particular thing: Expert Systems.

Expert systems are artificial intelligence applications which operate with knowledge base in order to provide solutions to a particular problem by clarifying uncertainties for users and giving multiple answers to the best course of action in a given field.

Expert systems operate with user queries, much like search engines – the difference is in the type of base : data vs. knowledge. The expert systems, as I defined them above, are a little part of the future web 3.0 as I envision it; this “semantic web” will probably operate with a knowledge base in order to provide answers to user queries.

The “sentiment” component is also a big part of the future web 3.0 because the knowledge base has to be filtered somehow. The way I see things, the sentiment is in fact the number of positive reviews of a product or service versus the number of negative reviews of that product or service.

June 1, 2010 1 comment

Social Media got to Linkedin – just a month ago, Linkedin was just a big business network which was very difficult to develop – I had to use recommandations  or e-mail adresses in order to increase my network.

  • statistics on my network,
  • a categorized search engine,
  • a reading list powered by Amazon,

  • group directories
  • the chance to post some previews from my blog posts
  • the chance to create a group or to join one
