Re: How Facebook Calculates What Appears In Your News Feed -
"Great post ! I totally agree with the OPC (other people's content) part. If all you do if talk about yourself, no one will come back. I wrote this a few months ago: Why Nobody Cares About Your Facebook Page (and why you shouldn't either)." - Shaun Dakin
Re: No Pain No Gain -
"Switching costs are too high for me. I'm already a paid member for Spotify and LOVE it. Twitter is great for real time news and sports events. Twitter is pretty much useless for informed and nuanced discussions. Case in point. I ran #PrivChat for almost three years and shut it down in Dec 2013. Why? The conversation had run stale and people were just saying the same thing, over and over again in 140 cs. I rarely participate in twitter chats any more. They are simply not worth my time. Twitter is great to see what is happening right NOW. Unfortunately for twitter I don't need to see that right NOW. Shaun Dakin @PrivacyCamp" - Shaun Dakin

"Not new people. Announced Firearms policy is exactly the same as current firearms policy. Current policy Just more stirring up the hornet's nest for page views. #FAIL" - Shaun Dakin
Re: Tweetstorming -
"Of course, so I'm using it less and less. For clients we do twitter chats and they can be helpful to influence policy and policy makers. But for day to day personal use, not so much. I mostly use Buffer and hootsuite / lists to filter noise. Even with that it is no longer where engagement occurs. Facebook is where that happens for me and most of my friends and family. Twitter still rules Breaking news. Push notifications (press release). But Facebook is where community lives. Thanks Shaun Dakin @shaundakin ;-)" - Shaun Dakin
Re: Tweetstorming -
"And, in general, I'm seeing less and less useful twitter conversations. Personally I am using it less and less. I've been there from the start and won a Mashable Open Web Award for the best use of Twitter for non profits in 2008. It is mostly for pushing a message now and not for true engagement. Won for @EndTheRobocalls" - Shaun Dakin

Re: Another Responsible Gun Owner Kills Baby Sister With His New Gun -
"Yes, because there are, unfortunately, new stories EVERY SINGLE DAY. In every community. In every state, with every economic class. This story is sad, but it is one of 1000's and, for some in the progressive community, another chance to mock rednecks and hillbillies." - Shaun Dakin

Re: Nonprofit Facebook: Worth It or Waste of Time? -
"How can you not participate in a platform where the majority of Americans are? Here is the main thing I tell my clients > NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE. It is NOT your website. People may go to your "page" 1 time. That is it. Once. Social media is, by definition, social. People come to facebook to be social. And this is the key. They don't come for YAPR (Yet Another Press Release). They don't come to have really bad content pushed at them. Actually, my clients are not allowed to ask me to "push" something on social media. They now know to ask me to "share" content on social media. And don't get me started on "let's make this go viral" ! :) People come to be entertained. They come for baby photos. They come for class reunions. So, unless you are Disney, most of your members will not care about YOUR content. What to do? Curate some amazing content (see Upworthy as Exhibit A in this strategy. They do NOT produce a single bit of original content). I call this OPC - other people's..." - Shaun Dakin
Re: Why the web isn’t as meritocratic as you think -
"YES, you have to pay to be heard on social media. There is nothing new under the sun. However, and this is the critical difference, you need to produce AMAZING CONTENT (or curate it) because Facebook simply will not show content that is not up to speed. Doesn't matter how much you spend. If no one comments, likes or shares your content, you will be screaming into the black hole of the internet. Unless you are Disney, no one want to read your CRAP content. Really. Think about it. Social media is SOCIAL. No one wants content PUSHED at them. They want content that makes them happy and that they want to share. If you can do that, awesome. If you can't you better become very very good at curating awesome content from other people (OPC - other people's content) and giving them attribution." - Shaun Dakin

Re: Obama Goes off on Mass Shootings -
"God Bless the United States of the NRA. In one year, guns murdered 17 people in Finland, 35 in Australia, 39 in England and Wales, 60 in Spain, 194 in Germany, 200 in Canada, and 9,484 in the United States. Gun Murders by Country and Population Size When the countries are compared on the basis of firearm homicides per 100,000 population, the United States remains an outlier. In one year, the U.S. firearm homicide rate was: 19 times that of Australia, 5 times that of Canada, 44 times that of England and Wales, 10 times that of Finland, 13 times that of Germany, and 24 times that of Spain." - Shaun Dakin

Re: Mom's gun control group aims at Target - Jun. 4, 2014 -
"Do you know how much my family spends at Target every year? $1000's of dollars. That money will not be spent unless Target ban guns from their stores. My family does not feel safe with unregistered, untrained "open carry" folks roaming around their stores. #NotOneMore dime from this family until Target gets #GunSense and ban guns from their stores. Now." - Shaun Dakin
