Take the Power Back: Activity is the Answer to the Toxic Web
You may have heard that the best way to deal with the “information overload” is to switch off your devices. To take a break from the Internet. Go for a run. Roll out the Yoga mat. Read a book. Talk to your friends. Switching off is good advice. But eventually, you’ll be back. How about changing? Changing from passive, to active. From scroll to search, from react to rethink, from like and retweet to write and link. Take the power back.

You don’t have to live in public
I like this. "It seems ridiculous to say, but 2013, the year I wrote the book, was a simpler time. Social media seemed much more benign to me. Back then, the worst I felt social media did was waste your time. Now, the worst social media does is cripple democracy and ruin your soul."

Unpacking 263,000 visitor photos at the Royal Ontario Museum - Museum-iD
In a little over 4 years we have aggregated just over a quarter of a million photos shared by our visitors. 263,693 photos as of January 25th, 2018 to be exact.

That is a lot user generated content (UGC) but is any of it meaningful? Can we use this as a data source to inform decision making? Are selfies really the scourge of the museum world like they are made out to be or are more people taking (collecting) photos of artifacts? Is there a benefit to encouraging visitors to share their photos? Do we need to incorporate digital engagement experiences into our exhibitions, or can we be more reactive? Below I’ll dig into these ideas and attempt to extract some meaningful information from this lot of UGC.

What actually is ‘storytelling’ in educational social media?
‘Storytelling’ was a word dropped by almost every single person I interviewed over the course of my Fellowship. That’s no surprise: I was asking what the most important aspects of their online science content was, and it’s pretty obvious that telling great stories is crucial to engaging your audience: facts alone are rarely enough.

What’s the most important metric for online science communicators?
Sometimes it feels like the key outcome of our social media activity is to generate statistics that feed impressive-looking monthly reports. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that those reports should reflect the actual goals of activity, not be an end-point themselves. My advice for most people trying to make sense of their social media analytics: for the next couple of months, dramatically simplify what you’re looking at.

What we found in Facebook ads by Russians accused of election meddling
> Of the roughly 3,500 ads published this week, more than half — about 1,950 — made express references to race. Those accounted for 25 million ad impressions — a measure of how many times the spot was pulled from a server for transmission to a device.
At least 25% of the ads centered on issues involving crime and policing, often with a racial connotation. Separate ads, launched simultaneously, would stoke suspicion about how police treat black people in one ad, while another encouraged support for pro-police groups.
