Follr Feature Focus – Sharing Content

There are many Follr features that people tell us they love but content sharing gets more than most.

Within Follr you can widely share activity and content from and to your connections and with members of the general Follr community:

Follr Digital Identity Newsfeed

To like a post simply click the ‘Like’ link and you will see this message:

To repost content within Follr click the ‘Repost’ link, add commentary (if so desired) in the box then click the ‘Post’ button:

The Follr Personal Profile Website – An Overview of Mobile

What is responsive design or RWD?

“Responsive design (often abbreviated to RWD) is an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

When you consider just how much mobile dominates peoples attention the time is rapidly approaching when we spend more time on our phone than watching TV. As a result the importance of having Web content present effectively on mobiles and tablets can’t be understated. So we have made sure that every Follr Personal Profile Website looks as good as it can on every phone:

Do You Know Which Social Network Works Best For You?

If someone wants information about you, where do they look first? Is it a social network, a Website, some other online location? Which social network provides the most information, the most complete picture of you?

Today, our information is all over the Web but by using Follr we can see that, in March, most people went to Twitter to research me followed by Facebook and then LinkedIn.

Follr Social Media Data

Along with this data Follr also provides me with reports on:

  • who specifically viewed my Follr account
  • how many times my Follr account was viewed
  • what specific page they looked at
  • what files they downloaded.

To see your stats simply log into your account and click the triangle icon next to your profile image in the top right of the screen:

Social Media Statistics

With so much time wasted on social media, social marketing and social networking (they are distinct and separate things) it’s vital that you focus on platforms, services and Websites that get you the most bang for your buck or RIO (return on investment) in business speak. The best place to start is Follr – start today by creating your profile at follr.com.

Social Media Aggregation – The Follr Social Wall Explained

One of the more irritating things about the social web is that everything is everywhere. You can get great information from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube but you have to visit them individually to see all of your teams social media content. Unless, that is, your Website is a Follr Community.

Every Follr Community includes two versions of Social Wall, our content aggregation feature. On the home page you see the communitites own social media content:

Social Wall Home Page

It shows a real time feed of tweets, blog posts, videos and posts from all the major social networks giving you one place to see everything.

If you click the ‘Social Media’ link in the menu:

Social Wall Menu Link

you get to see an even more extensive aggregation of social media which additionally includes all content from the communities parent and associated content providers:

Social Wall Inner Page

Of course all of the content is responsive which means it will display on your mobile phone or tablet.
