Team Caffeine’s Bold Blend is our Friday boost of inspiration to help you kick start your weekend.
This is content we’ve hand picked from across the Internet because it gives us a buzz we know you’ll love too.
In this week’s round-up:
- Now available: Scheduled Tweets (Twitter)
- Facebook launches ‘Stories to Share,’ for publishers
- eBay launches Pinterest-like bulletin boards
Yup, it’s official, you can now schedule your tweets. This might sound like old news, but it’s no joke. Twitter has launched an official tweet scheduling tool. For now, the option to schedule is only available to marketers using Twitter’s Ad Products. But we can see Twitter rolling it out across the board in the near future.
Meanwhile, over at Facebook they’ve launched a new tool called Stories to Share. This is aimed at media sites, and shows them which of their news stories are trending on Facebook. According to the number crunchers, this tool has the potential to increase traffic referred from Facebook by up to 80%. Again, if media companies put this tool to good use, we can see Facebook rolling it out for anyone who wants to use it on their blog. Check out the full story here.
Finally, a company we rarely talk about on Social Caffeine has hit the headlines for taking the lead from social media. eBay has launched new Pinterest style boards that allows uses to collect images of products they’d like to buy. The aim of the new feature, called eBay Today, is to attract younger users to the site. This is a feature that could flop or fly, so watch this space. If it proves popular, it could become a key feature of all major eCommerce sites.
That’s all folks. Until next week, keep it buzzing!
