How Foursquare’s crazy idea might become its Next Big Thing: Welcome to Swarm

Picture this: you’re a product manager at a highly successful social media startup that’s about to make a radical decision about its popular app. But the co-founder and CEO initially describes it as “crazy”. Pity the product manager at New York’s Foursquare: when the idea to split the app into two was first mooted (one for discovery and a new one – “Swarm” – for arranging offline meetups with friends), the initial response was not positive. How do you sell a pup like that? From crazy to total sense  As founder and CEO Dennis Crowley put it in an interview with Mashable, “At first, we thought it was crazy to do this, but it makes total sense.” Those last four words made that product manager’s job much less scary. Newly released for iPhone and Android, Swarm breaks the proximity and check-in functions away from the main app to become a simple, easy-to-use standalone feature. Users have the option of a grid view or list view of nearby friends who are also using the swarm app (the list view is a little easier on the eye, in our opinion). The app constantly pings each user’s whereabouts to others who use it…

Niche, the NY startup that shares the secrets of megastar social media creators with brands and advertisers

New York social media startup Niche, which has just raised $2.5 million in venture funding, has some valuable secrets to share. But what are they? The more perspicuous content manager will be aware that there’s a new breed of celebrity out there: these people may not be household names in meatspace, but on Tumblr, Instagram, Vine and YouTube, they’re megastars wielding enormous influence. Going native with social media stars Enter Niche, a community of talented social media influencers (known as “creators”) who the startup links with publishers in need of the secrets of their reach and following. Niche’s star creators now number 2,500 (it was launched last Fall by former BuzzFeed, YouTube and Huff Post executives) and it has accrued a staggering 507 million followers in less than a year. So how, the inquiring content manager will be wondering, does it work? When advertisers sign up to Niche’s platform, they get access to between 5 and 50 of the startup’s creators, who between them are dab hands at making Instagram photos, Vines, YouTube videos and a host of other types of content. That content then gets massively shared with their hordes of followers (these people are social media megastars, don’t…

Twitter shares take a dive on stock market

Twitter shares nosedived earlier this week when they went on sale on the stock market for the first time. The share price on Tuesday was the lowest level they had been since the company made their Initial Public Offering (IPO) back in November 2013, dropping to 17.8% and closing at $31.85. It is estimated that approximately 135 million shares were traded, a figure ten times higher than normal. Stock market analysts attributed the drop in share price to the ending of a lockup period which stopped the majority of the shareholders, mostly early investors and company insiders, from being able to sell their shares. This is a common practice for relatively young companies which decide to go public, as it stops the market from being swamped with shares. Twitter unable to compete  The end of the lockup period arrived at the same time as people were voicing concerns about the social networking site’s ability to attract and hold a conventional audience. Twitter is often lauded as an indispensable tool for businesses in building a brand and engaging with potential customers. However, despite tweaking and improving their platform, Twitter failed to perform as well as expected, failing to experience the growth…

New York social media analytics startup Sprinklr aims to take social advertising to dizzy heights with new ad tool

Seasoned business development managers concerned to optimize online advertising sales for their clients don’t need any lectures on the rising importance of the social media channel in running effective campaigns. And that’s why they may be interested in a new B2B advertising tool launched by New York social media analytics startup, Sprinklr. A company first  The new product is described by the company as its first “paid social media solution” – and its launch coincides with news that the startup has just successfully closed a Series D round totaling $40 million, virtually doubling its total venture capital investment overnight to a princely $77.5 million. Naturally, our seasoned business development manager will now be asking, “What does the new ad tool do and what will Sprinklr do with the new cash?” The answer to the first part is this: it’s a software platform which helps agencies and brands manage their advertising campaigns across Facebook and Twitter. Up to now, Sprinklr managed unpaid and viral content on these networks; now they’re offering clients the chance to manage all social media interactions, whether paid or unpaid, from a single product. And it seems to be getting impressive results. Early tests apparently show that…

Loverly, New York-based ‘Pinterest for brides,’ strides forward

Anyone with a little experience of media jobs in social media will appreciate that a startup that soars to a $15 million valuation and looks set to close a Series B round worth at least $2.5 million less than three years after its launch is ticking a lot of positive boxes. And rumor has it that New York social media startup Loverly, a kind of Pinterest for soon-to-be brides, is poised to do just that. Bridal inspiration  Social media managers who’ve heard of Loverly will know that it serves as a central marketplace that helps prospective brides find out about and save great wedding ideas. That means helping them find the right people to hire, as well as all the things they might like to buy to make their special day seriously Special, with a capital ‘S’. Users can curate a board of ideas (hence the Pinterest comparison), and make them public for other brides-to-be to find inspiration in. The boards can be both editor-curated (such as honeymoon ideas, or bridesmaid dresses for beach weddings) and user-generated. The site’s proprietary tagging system automatically adds between 4 and 20 tags to each image, indexing features like style, color, location, and season,…
