    Quoting IT: Mike Elgan on Google Plus

    "As a result, it’s been bizarre to see the constant stream of falsehoods and confusion about Google+, which I know to be untrue. One writer after another used to say Google+ was a “ghost town,” and in 100% of those cases the author was not circling people or engaging. They confused their own lack of activity with a general lack of activity on the network."

    - Mike Elgan, What I Learned On The Way To 3 Million Google+ Circles, Cult of Android, Jan 19, 2014.

  • Mailbag: Dwibbles for Social Media Management

    Mailbag: Dwibbles for Social Media Management

    Ever since social media and social networks have gone mainstream, our digital lives have become complicated. There are a number of social media management tools already out on the market that aim to give users the tools they need to better mange, filter, and prioritize the content they read from their favorite blogs and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Almost all these tools fall short of their intended goals and why I'm always on the lookout for something better to come along. 

    Dwibbles LogoIn the CMS Report mailbag, we have an email from Eric Santos, co-founder of a new social media management tool called Dwibbles. I've only taken a brief look at Dwibbles. My first impressions is that Dwibbles is still in the early stages of getting you where you want to go with it. However, Eric and his team knows this and I appreciate Eric's enthusiasm in wanting to tackle this problem. I think if Eric and company can find a way for me to combine the I content I read from social media, news feeds, and my favorite blogs into something better organized and manageable then I would forever be grateful. After reading his email, I plan to maintain my watch on the evolution of Dwibbles and be forever hopeful.

  • DotNetNuke Rebrands to DNN and Expands Product Suite

    DotNetNuke Rebrands to DNN and Expands Product Suite

    Over the years, we all have abbreviated DotNetNuke as DNN as we've discussed this open source .Net based content management system. It looks like the corporate folks upstairs have finally made this interchangeability official. DotNetNuke Corp will now be known as DNN.

    The new DNN has also taken the time not only to announce the branding of the new company logo, but also announced a new and refocused suite of products and services. Today, DNN has announced DNN Evoq, a suite of integrated applications enabling enterprises to create online experiences and powerful interactive communities. DNN Evoq intends to make it easy for users, including those with minimal IT experience, to integrate social functionality with their existing websites.

  • Study: Google Plus Ones and Relevant Content Closely Linked with High Google Search Rankings

    Study: Google Plus Ones and Relevant Content Closely Linked with High Google Search Rankings

    But ‘keyword domains’ are less important according to a comprehensive analysis of factors that correlate with ranking highly in Google US searches in 2013

    Web pages that rank higher in Google searches tend to have more Google+ plus ones and Facebook shares. While having a relevant keyword in the web site domain name or web address now seems less closely linked with high rankings according to new research. And while pages with higher quality content rank better, top brand web pages apparently continue to automatically rank in top positions without obeying the same rules as other sites.

  • Alfresco and Acquia to form strategic partnership

    Alfresco and Acquia to form strategic partnership

    The announcement of the partnership is likely an unsurprising move for most involved in the open source content management and document management industry as similar partnerships with other content management providers and Alfresco have already occurred. Nor is this the first time that we've seen Acquia involved with integrating the Drupal CMS with the Alfresco platform. However, this is probably the first time we've seen Acquia and and Alfresco Inc. so publicly announce such a partnership for delivering products and services and perhaps this is a recognition that customers have need for better integration solutions in both product and services.
