By , on August 12, 2013 at 11:34 am

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend! Today’s Rallyverse Roundup examines a new infographic on Twitter users’ average ratio of Tweets per minute in a day, advice for online reputation management, and why Facebook may be slipping away from its teen audience.

Average Ratio Of Tweets Per Minute In A Day (AllTwitter)

Twitter often publishes interesting data visualizations and graphs that display the geography, content, or frequency of tweets across time periods and places. Check out two fascinating graphs: average ratio of tweets per minute over weekdays vs. weekend, and the average ratio of tweets per minute in a day by month.

Leaning towards a better way to gauge consumer media interaction (paidContent)

The current lean-forward, lean-back paradigm, conceived by Jakob Nielsen, was popularized around 2008 and yet (amazingly) it’s already showing its age. Consider that it predates the widespread use of touchscreen smartphones, the current dominance of tablets — the entire second screen phenomena — and even the widespread adoption of on-demand streaming media services like Netflix and Spotify. The world has turned in the past 5 years, and yet this framework remains a popular if not standard convention for analyzing data consumption in the media business.

4 pro tips for online reputation management and social media (Memeburn)

One of the biggest fears many people and companies have with social media is that they are scared that they are going to lose control of their reputation. It’s true that once you open the door on the social web making contact with the public, you do run the risk of unhappy people and trolls that want to bring down your business with negative comments and remarks. This is real and it can happen, but we are not living in the 70′s anymore. If someone wants to complain about you online, they can do it even if you don’t have a profile on the web.

I’m a teen living in New York. All of my friends have social networks — Instagram, Vine, Snapchat, etc. Facebook used to be all I could talk about when I was younger. “Mom, I want a Facebook!” and other whining only a mother could put up with. But now, at 13, I’ve been noticing something different. Facebook is losing teens lately, and I think I know why.

Facebook Puts the Brakes on ‘The Hacker Way’ (Wired)

Before taking his company public last year, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg warned Wall Street that his social network would follow “The Hacker Way,” an unconventional path built in part around the adage “move fast and break things.” The idea was that Facebook would rather make mistakes than get left behind in fast-innovating Silicon Valley. But a year and a half after the “Hacker Way” manifesto, Facebook is breaking fewer things and moving more slowly — at least when it comes to individual features and products. It’s testing new tools more thoroughly prior to release and then parsing goodies out slowly to help smoke out even more problems.
