Generate Social Media Meta Tags For Your Website

#Tool — Generate Social Media Meta Tags For Your Website

When you share a link on social media, you can often see a title, a description and an image appear inside your post: these elements are social media meta tags.

For instance, here is what Loomly’s homepage looks like when you share it on Facebook:

While some platforms allow you to customize the social media meta tags associated with a URL, some others don’t.

For that reason — and many others — it’s considered a best practice to define social media meta tags for your own website.

And, while defining social media meta tags is not the most complicated process in the world, unless you have access to a developer or have some basic HTML skills yourself, it may get tricky to generate these tags yourself.

Fortunately, there is a tool for that, Metatags.co, which makes the process a breeze:

  • Select what you want to create meta tags for: a website, an app, a blog post, a product or a video.
  • Choose which platforms you want to generate meta tags for: Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+ & Twitter.
  • Type in the details of your meta tag: URL, title, description, image URL, video URL, locale, etc.
  • Copy the code that is automaticaly generated for you in real time and past it on your website or your app.
  • Validate that your social media meta tags are recognized by social networks with Metatags.co’s built-in validator.

And voilà!

What’s in it for Social Media Managers: it’s now easier than ever to make your links look good when you — and most importantly other people — share them on social media.

Calendy Update Manage Your Notifications With Email Digests

#Loomly — Update: Manage Your Notifications With Email Digests

So far, Loomly was sending you instant notifications whenever something was happening inside your account.

Today, we are pleased to introduce some brand new settings that allow you to choose when you want to receive notifications:

  • As they happen: our default settings, which keep sending instant notifications as usual.
  • Once per hour: an hourly email digest that compiles all the notifications from the past hour in a single email.
  • Once a day: a daily email digest that compiles all the notifications from the past day in a single email.
  • Once a week: a weekly email digest that compiles all the notifications from the past week in a single email.
  • Never: deactivate all emails if you prefer consuming notifications directly on your Loomly Dashboard.

Loomly Update Manage Your Notifications With Email Digests Settings Demo

You can apply the above settings independently to each kind of notification Loomly sends: post status change, assignment, comment, etc.

And, of course, you can set different preferences for each of your calendar, and each user of a calendar can define his or her own settings.

These new email notification preferences are available directly inside your Account, in a brand new Notifications tab.

Once again, this is a feature that was inspired by your amazing and constructive feedback: thank you so much for your ongoing support and enthusiasm.

You are simply the best community we could dream of and we can’t wait to show you what’s next this month… stay tuned!

The Loomly Team.

Bonus: since we are talking about updates, we just increased the video upload limit from 30MB to 200MB, so you can now schedule posts with larger media files 😉

Discover The 100 Most Popular Websites On The Internet

#Data — Discover The 100 Most Popular Websites On The Internet

While there are more than 1.1 billion websites in the world, the 100 most popular websites — i.e. less than 0.0000090909% ! — “rule” the Internet and generate most of its traffic.

Singapor hosting company Vodien published an infographic ranking the 100 most popular websites in the United States, based on data from Alexa:

100 most popular websites in the united states

In particular, the Top 10 includes:

  1. Google
  2. YouTube
  3. Facebook
  4. Amazon
  5. Yahoo!
  6. Wikipédia
  7. Reddit
  8. Ebay
  9. Twitter
  10. Netflix

And the Social Media Top 10 is:

  1. YouTube
  2. Facebook
  3. Twitter
  4. LinkedIn
  5. Imgur
  6. Instagram
  7. Pinterest
  8. Tumblr
  9. Stack Overflow
  10. Quora

What’s in it for Social Media Managers: although the above rankings focus on traffic and may not reflect the actual usage of these platforms, it’s interesting to get the big picture and keep in mind an estimate of “who” the 100 most popular websites are, when launching new campaigns.

Learn More About Twitter's Algorithmic Timeline

#LongRead — Learn More About Twitter’s Algorithmic Timeline

While most social networks had long switched to algorithmic feeds, Twitter kept displaying tweets in a simple reverse chronological order… until March 2016, when the new Twitter’s algorithmic timeline started rolling out.

Surprisingly, still very little is known about this algorithm.

Will Oremus, Slate’s Senior Technology Editor, had a chance to work with Twitter to get a glimpse at the new algorithmic timeline, and shares what he learnt in this this fascinating article:

  • How the algorithm actually affects your timeline and which factors do impact what you see in your feed.
  • The business stakes of this major update for the future of the company.
  • The role of Twitter’s algorithmic timeline in the 2016 US Election and politics in general.
  • What Twitter learns about their users thanks to this algorithm and related experiments.

While Twitter’s Algorithmic Timeline seems to remain Work In Progress with areas for improvement (what does not?), as Social Media Managers and long time fans of the platform, we could not agree more with the closing paragraph of the article:

[…] the main alternatives to Twitter as a news source—Fox News, CNN, Facebook, et al.—all have their own crises of credibility and perception, driven in part by the perverse incentives of their respective business and audience models. If Twitter is right that its users value at least some diversity of viewpoints in their feeds—and if it’s serious about being a place people come for information rather than just entertainment or endorphins—we’ll be better off with a more automated Twitter than we would be with no Twitter at all.
