This Week’s Link Roundup #22

Every week millions of interesting links pop up around the Web. Some detail updates and advances in technology, some provide great insight to marketing strategies and tactics, some broaden our knowledge of the world around us, and others are just plain out-there. Since most of the staff at Aristotle share these links with each other, we thought we’d share them with you too. Enjoy.

SOCIAL MEDIA

  • American Express lets you shop with tweets.
    AMEX has been playing the discount game via Twitter for a while now, but they recently announced that cardholders can actually purchase products through the microblog network.
  • Facebook’s privacy tips for Graph Search.
    Facebook’s new Graph Search opens the doors for more privacy concerns (but what doesn’t, right?). On their blog, Facebook gives a few tips to ensure your privacy settings are up to date.
  • Facebook video vs. YouTube links.
    Do you post video to your Facebook Page? If so, do you upload the video directly to Facebook or share a YouTube link? SocialBakers pulled some data to find out which option receives the most engagement.

TECHNOLOGY

  • State of the Tech Union.
    President Obama had his chance to talk on the state of our union, but now the tech giants have their say on the tech union.
  • Search engines more trusted than social media.
    For news and information that is. In this study by Trust Barometer, people tend to trust search engines more than social media, but what’s more interesting in my opinion is search engine’s gain on traditional media.

OTHER INTERESTING FINDS

  • Oscar Travesties.
    The Oscars are this weekend, so it’s only fitting to relive the past 85 years of academy travesties in a bracket challenge.
