More Great NEW Tools for Social Media

Monday, May 09, 2011
Facebook introduced a new feature on their platform.  Just over a year ago, they introduced the “Like” button to help people share worthwhile information with all their friends. However, there are many times when people want to share something with just certain people. On Monday April 25th, Facebook  introduced the Send button to allow us now to privately share things with groups and individuals. 

How It Works
The NEW Send button is a social plugin that allows websites to let people send a link to a friend through Facebook Messages, posting it to a Group, or emailing it to an individual. A great example - if you see a Mother's Day gift idea on 1-800-Flowers.com, you can send a message or email to one of your family members to discuss the gift idea.  This new button allows your readers to choose who they want to share your content with.

 
The NEW Send button drives traffic by letting users to now send a link and a short message to the people that would be most interested. They no longer have to leave the web page they're on or fill out a long time consuming form. Compared to the alternatives, the NEW Send button has fewer required steps. It removes the need to look up an email address by auto-suggesting friends and Groups. 
Facebook designed the “Send” button to be used alongside the “Like” button. By including both these button on your website, people will have the ability to broadcast the things they like and also send the information to specific people.

How to Add the Send Button
The Send button can be easily added to existing “Like” buttons or as a standalone feature. Developers currently using the XFBML Like button can include the send="true" attribute in their Like button code to generate a combined button, and those using an iFrame version of the “Like” button will need to upgrade to XFBML to display the NEW Send button.

 The following code will generate a combined Like and Send button:
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script>
<fb:like href="example.com" show_faces="true" width="450" send="true">
</fb:like>
Developers can add a standalone Send button with the following code:
<div id="fb-root"></div>
<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"></script>
<fb:send href="example.com"></fb:send>

If you want to learn more about the combined Like and Send Button, visit here on the Facebook Developers’ Page:http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/



 
If you want to integrate your Website pages into the social graph, set up the Open Graph Protocol. When a user clicks on your Like Button on your Facebook Page, a connection would be made between your page and the user’s page.  Your page would appear in the “Likes and Interests” section of the user’s profile and you would then have the ability to publish updates to the user.
To turn your Website Page into graphic objects, you will need to add Open Graph Protocol <meta> tags and the Like Button to your Website Pages.  The tabs will allow you to specify structured information about your website pages. The more information you provide, the more opportunities your website pages will be surfaced within the Facebook pages. 
Facebook Deals launched new Test Program in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Francisco.  This new program is similar to Facebook Deals and Groupon that allows local businesses to offer digital coupons on Facebook.
See example below:

 
Klout.com  launched their new site version on their site allowing you to “compare your Klout” profile to others to gain new insight on your score. Klout identifies top influencers on topics across the social web.
When I signed up, my score is a 22.  Even though it says I have the ability to generate actions and discussions and engage with a good mix of influencers and friends, along with building a good size network that is highly engaged -  I have a lot of work to do.

 

Another recent thing that has happened on the social networking platforms is that YouTube Founders acquiredDelicious.  Delicious users will be happy to hear that this very popular book marketing platform has a new owner.   Avos has made plans to make the site even easier and more fun to save and share content.

 
Another great platform to be aware of is http://www.pressjack.com/  that is a desktop application that allows publishers to convert their web content instantly into digital magazines. A desktop version of the application is now available in beta.

Having read this I thought it was really informative.

I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this short article
together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both
reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still
worthwhile!

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But
he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
Anja commented on 19-Mar-2013 05:24 PM
When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact
same comment. Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
Appreciate it!

Greetings from Carolina! I'm bored at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you provide here and can't wait
to take a look when I get home. I'm shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I'm
not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, excellent site!

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating
my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
sextape commented on 24-Jun-2013 03:36 PM
I'm curious to find out what blog platform you are utilizing? I'm having some minor security problems with my
latest blog and I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

I enjoy what you guys tend to be up too. This kind of clever work
and reporting! Keep up the very good works guys I've you guys to my blogroll.
karissa shannon sextape commented on 17-Jul-2013 10:28 AM
I seldom leave a response, but after reading through a lot of comments on More Great NEW Tools for
Social Media. I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be just me or do a few of these responses look as if they are coming
from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I'd like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
audreybitoni.thepornostar.net commented on 17-Jul-2013 02:55 PM
Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!
roman holiday commented on 17-Jul-2013 03:41 PM
When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Appreciate it!

Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm
looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had
to ask!
fashion costa blanca commented on 28-Jul-2013 09:32 PM
Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this,
such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you
can do with a few percent to pressure the message house a little bit, however other than that, that is wonderful blog.
An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.
Windows Mobile Dialer commented on 30-Jul-2013 01:52 PM

a very long time. Thank you and good luck.
