NEW Social Media Group - Idea and Free :)
« on: March 15, 2010, 04:12:07 AM »
Hi all,

I've been working on testing few things out in regards to Social Media but I need a bigger network of people and of course I came across this idea!

You all know about: Digg, Stumble Upon, and Yahoo buzz!

Well, if you are on the first page of any of these, you really can get lots of traffic to your pages! 

So...I've been thinking, why don't we create a social media group of around 50-100 people and digg, stumble upon and yahoo buzz each others content. 

BUT...

I have to mention, the content really has to be of quality, and it has to be something that other digg users would digg as well. So instead of submitting 100's of "junk" articles, the content would have to be really of great quality.

So I am thinking, we need to limit to 2 Content pages per Week/group member

Let me know if you would be interested in doing this.

I do know that there are services that offer digg votes for $80/300 votes, but I was hoping we can have a free service.

ok, sounds great, so far I have 5 people interested, just wanting to know if there are more, and if we can start with 20 people, this would be great.

I think that's a terrific idea!

That's what this forum is for; to learn, make friends, join forces, help each other out, etc.
I'm all for anything win-win.

Ivana,

I agree, your "NEW" Social Media Group is a good idea.

Hi Ivana,

Yahoo Groups is great, but would you rather have a dedicated site with many more features and SEO capabilities?
I could have one up and running within a day or two.

Check out Dolphin - It's free, open-source software and has everything but the kitchen sink--although I may have run across that add-in somewhere.  ;D
http://www.boonex.com/dolphin

The domain RRWFriends.com is available.

What do you all think?

Hi Karen,

looks great...Hm I thought yahoo would be easiest, and fastest set up. 

So maybe we start with this and later we can move to more advanced technology :) as I am not the best at learning new softwares fast

Ahh, Ivana, be brave, I have faith in you!  :::tu

I checked out the admin area and it's very intuitive.
If you can find your way around this forum then you can use this, I guarantee it.

I'll tell you what, I'll go ahead and get the domain, set up the script and you
can learn it at your leisure. In the meantime we'll go with Yahoo like you
suggested. Sound like a winner?

I'm replying with interest, although I confess I'm not quite sure what you're expecting as involvement.
 
But I'll give you me as another participant to help you get going and learn as I go.

Thanks,

Karen
