Changing careers can be both stressful and exciting. After all, it’s a decision that can completely change your life.
Some people have no trouble transitioning into a new career, while others struggle to carve out a spot in their new niche. Why is this? Sometimes it’s simply a matter of branding: those who find success have worked hard to rebrand themselves within their new field.
Rebranding your personal identity is similar to rebranding a corporate identity. It involves changing the way others perceive you. This can be achieved through a variety of offline ways, including furthering your education and experience, volunteering within your new field and more. But it is equally important to rebrand yourself online as you work on your skills and expertise offline – so read on for five tips for using Twitter to help you rebrand yourself.
HootSuite, the Vancouver-based social media management system, yesterday announced that it has secured an additional $165 million in Series B financing, in a deal that is being cited as the largest ever seen in Canadian venture capital history for a software company.
Content curation platform ContentGems has been operating under the radar for several years, focusing on cultivating a customer base and nurturing a quality product.
Now the power tool is flying boldly into the Twitter ecosystem with a partnership with HootSuite, as well as a major expansion of the ContentGems revenue model.
Do you live in fear of the Syrian Electronic Army hacking your Twitter account? Or do you have a CEO with less than stellar social media skills? Or maybe you belong on our Twit List as someone who outsources “social” to interns and kinda deserve whatever public embarrassment you get.
But regardless of the scenario, a little Twitter security couldn’t hurt. For at the end of the day, even the most savvy social-ites are at risk.
And guess what? Hootsuite’s got yo’ back:
Ever try to follow a #hashtag chat and get annoyed by certain folks posting irrelevant tweets that muck up the stream?
Tweetdeck now offers a way for you to wash that junk right out of your feed, with column filters.
Have most people on Twitter been naughty or nice? You’ll have to ask Santa for that information.
But Hootsuite’s Holiday Command Center can offer insight into how many people are tweeting about the holidays, and their sentiment about the holidays and their shopping experiences.
We’ll accept that as a close second.
It’s always been a favourite here at AllTwitter, and social media dashboard HootSuite continues to grow at an astonishing pace.
The platform is celebrating its five millionth signup – which represents amazing growth of one million new users in no time at all – and users across all of HootSuite’s social networks and applications have now sent a combined 1.3 billion messages in 20 languages around the world.
HootSuite, the social media management system, has acquired Seesmic, who were innovators in mobile, desktop and web applications for social media, for an undisclosed amount.
Seesmic chief executive Loic Le Meur had to lay off half of his staff back in March, and this buyout from HootSuite is partially a talent acquisition for the remaining roster. Users of Seesmic software will be slowly ported over to HootSuite, who say that this buyout will “further reinforce HootSuite’s position in the upper left quadrant of the Twitter Partner graph”.
A lot has been written about Twitter’s latest developer guidelines, which outlines the types of third-party apps the company supports, and those it wants to eliminate.
Called out as being an example of an app the company approved of in its new guidelines was HootSuite, the enterprise-focused social media management tool. And now we know why: Twitter and HootSuite are teaming up to begin selling ads to 30,000 HootSuite Pro customers.
