Paper.li is a web-based tool, that is free, that you can use to create a daily paper of your Facebook and or Twitter feeds. The paper could also have a morning and evening edition or be weekly. You may also even set up a paper for a specific hashtag or keyword that is of interest to you such as this one. You may also have multiple papers.
I like Paper.li because it organizes the posts made by people you follow into categories. When people post links to photos or videos, it adds those too. Paper.li allows you to embed your daily paper on your website. It also pushes a daily notification letting your followers on Facebook and or Twitter know it has been updated. Here is a link to a copy of my Paper.li daily paper.
Here’s a video on how it works.
If you sign up for it, let us know. I’m happy to share your Paper.li daily news links with others.
The Chronicle of Philanthropy hosted an online forum led by Claire Diaz Ortiz, Twitter’s top person working with nonprofits on social innovation. The forum focused specially on how to use Twitter as an advocacy tool.
Here’s a link to the forum with the transcript of the proceedings. Please note the forum was held by having people use Twitter to post their questions and thus this is a story with a Twitter feed. It is the Twitter feed that you’ll want to pay attention to…

A new report by Sysomos has found that when you send a tweet it will mostly likely be retweeted within the first hour of posting. After that it likely will not be retweeted. Apparently, after an hour it’s old news and you can use it to line the bird cage.
Are you measuring how people are retweeting your own tweets? Do you find that they retweet it within an hour? Are they only retweeting after work hours or on certain days of the week? In the comments section, let us know when people retweet your posts. If you need help seeing when people retweet your posts, check out our past post on tools that can help you post to social media. These tools allow you to see retweets, too.

Back in November, I wrote about the introduction of Twitter lists. I wanted to share this helpful video on Twitter lists. Now that Twitter lists have matured over 3+ months, people are finally figuring out their true impact. Are you on any Twitter lists? Do you use them? Share your experiences with lists in the comments section.
Also here is a story by Cindy King on the value of Twitter lists for marketing. It’s from a great site on social media that should be in your RSS feed.
