The End of IT Emperor, and a Turbo-Boost for Glossy News

The End of IT Emperor, and a Turbo-Boost for Glossy News

Thanks for reading some of the recent social media and IT articles we’ve posted recently.

Some of you will be aware that the Medium journal “IT Emperor” (why haven’t you joined Medium yet?), which is edited by One Tongue Johnny, is being phased out; and almost all the content is being placed on Glossy News, under OTJ’s user profile.

So far, 11-13 December has seen four articles:

Tagging strategies on Medium.

The problem of fake Twitter followers.

People who follow you, while simultaneously blocking you.

How to work with multiple Twitter accounts: important pitfalls for serious Twitterati!

That was a joke. None of you are ‘Twitterati.’ I’m assuming we are all friends here; and we are all pretty serious people!

Not too serious though…

Anyway.

Thanks for your interest so far. Do remember to share this link, and to like our page. 

Over the next two days (14-15 December), we have no fewer than eight IT articles; plus a satirical poem!

After that, IT and social media articles are likely to be less regular than they have been the past few days; but you will definitely see some more from time to time; so, aside from all our funny satire, that’s yet another reason to like us on Facebook!

Thank you all so, so much.

Unilateral Blocking on Twitter: What Should You Do?

Unilateral Blocking on Twitter: What Should You Do?

On Twitter, ‘blocking’ means you the blocked person or ‘blockee’ cannot see the blocker’s tweets anymore; at least when they are locked in. (If the blocker is ‘shadowbanned,’ then it is also not possible to search for their tweets or their account; even when the person searching for them has logged out). Continue Reading

Medium Tags: Don’t Forget Foreign Words

Medium Tags: Don’t Forget Foreign Words

Don’t forget that with your tagging strategies on Medium, you can find non-native English speakers; or more broadly still, speakers of other languages.

Try pausing while you type, to see what the autofill/autocorrect function comes up with; not sure which is the correct word for this! I consider myself a ‘decent apprentice’ in IT by this point. So this is a learning experience for me too! Continue Reading

Things You Should be Doing as a Medium Blogger: But You’re Not Already! (2/2)

Things You Should be Doing as a Medium Blogger: But You’re Not Already! (2/2)

Sharing All Your Original Posts on Social Media

Don’t be too selective! You can set up automation for Facebook and Twitter; sadly, I don’t see any option for other social media platforms right now.

Will that change in the near future?

Sharing a Selection of Your Responses

I suspect that responding a lot to what other people have written helps you get attention, directly; and also boosts your reach and/or SEO. I haven’t got a source for this, but this sounds a very reasonable speculation. (Feel free to comment below, if you know anything more!)

However, tweeting or Facebook-sharing every last little response seems pedantic to me. People may get bored and switch off.

Also, unlike original posts, responses are not shared automatically.

If you want your response to be shared automatically, you should first of all make sure responses are switched on; and then you should make your responses into an actual article. In order to do this, try putting the title of your response into big header style; rather than small header, or indeed plain prose.

Respect Medium Publications Who have Helped you Out

Showing gratitude to publications that have published you is good manners. It can also help cultivate relationships, by showing the editors and other writers that you care, and are grateful to them. Try sharing a lot of their articles, as well as clapping or commenting (whenever you see something you really like.

Or even link to them!

Like I’m doing here:

Other Voices

Hopes and Dreams for Our Future

Reflector

The Wrytyr

Creating a Dedicated Facebook Page (Not Just Sharing with Your Friends!)

If you have a publication you are editing, that you are actually really serious about, you should consider making a fan page for it. Or a fan page for yourself. Or both. Unless you’re paying for ads, your reach may not be huge. But you can still try following the advice given here.
