Finding time to keep up with all the developments in the world of digital media is next to impossible. There are so many different platforms, and so many thousands of applications and tools being developed and marketed for each that sorting out what’s what could be a full-time job.
That’s why I like to check sources like Mashable, Lifehacker, CNET, Wired, and PCMag.com occasionally – and most especially when they offer Top 10 Lists and other aggregations of information. There are people for whom monitoring the digital world is a full-time job (as well as a passion).
So I take advantage of their good work periodically. It’s a quick way to scan the digital landscape, and I nearly always notice something that interests me.
Today I want to share a weekend post from Mashable’s Matt Protonzio titled 47 Digital Media Resources You May Have Missed. The entire post is worth a look, and here are just a few of the items that caught my eye:
- 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Klout: Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about Klout and the man who created it.
- The Best and Worst Times to Share on Facebook, Twitter: Link shortening and tracking service bit.ly has released new data on the best and worst times to share links on popular social networks.

- How to Optimize Your Headlines for Google and Humans: Google and SEO may make you cringe, but the combo matters in search. Here are SEO examples from news outlets that range from bad to best.
