10 stellar examples of NASA’s social media strategy

It’s not all just gob-smacking pictures of intergalactic phenomena and breathtaking rocket launches, you know.

Well alright, a lot of it is, but the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (apologies for the condescension pub-quiz fans) goes far beyond mere image re-appropriation from its vast archives.

Well to that I say “your cheap and easy reference demeans us both, and you know it.”

Here are some social media goodies from NASA.

Eight free image resources for your website or blog

This can lead to frustrating searches as you try to find a photo that illustrates your point without looking like a scene from a low budget '90s romantic comedy.

It’s tempting to revert to a Google Images search, but that’s likely to lead to a breach of some poor person’s copyright so it’s not a good idea.

Yahoo's five biggest acquisition screw-ups

Q4 financial results have hit us hard this week, from all directions.

Yes it's ridiculous that Apple’s quarterly net profit was larger than Google's Q4 gross revenue ($13bn versus £10.6bn), and yes it's sad to see Nintendo almost triple its estimated losses.

But what of Yahoo? It's still hanging on in there, with control of millions of Yahoo mail accounts and a chunk of display thrown in good measure.

So yesterday Hunch made a drastic change to its service, which comScore estimates receives approximately 750,000 unique visitors each month: it cut off access to users who aren't registered and logged in. Fake told TechCrunch that she thought "traffic will plummet" in the wake of this, but that "users who are using the product will have a significant lift in the quality of results."

20+ mind-blowing social media statistics revisited

It’s around six months since I last threw out some truly mindboggling pieces of data surrounding social media. So, what’s happened between then and now

I try to put as much information as I can into Econsultancy’s Social Media Statistics, which is part of our Stats Compendium (a truly awesome resource) but I find it’s always interesting to go back and review the old against the new.

So, I’ve collected as much as I can from my previous insane snippets of data and benchmarked it against the here and now, alongside rooting out some new stuff for you to mull over.
