Trend Alert: Couple Reading Is Now A Thing

There’s good news for couples that read together. Scientists agree that this activity amplifies bonding between partners, offers plenty of conversation topics, and helps them improve their overall relationship through meaningful exchanges of information and opinions, all thanks to a book.

Meaningful Bonding

Not every couple shares the same interests and hobbies, and it’s not unheard of that such couples sometimes have a limited scope of things to discuss. Reading a book – not necessarily out loud, but each on their own – can cultivate a strong rapport that revolves around a common topic. This shared experience can be the basis for a good conversation.

Each person brings their own understanding and interpretation of the plot and characters, and in a genuine exchange of information, couples develop better communication skills, which helps them form a stronger bond.

Blurring Out Noise

Couples can easily get caught up in chores and responsibilities. They have limited time, and although they want something truly meaningful and empowering for their relationship, they sometimes don’t know where to start.

Getting lost in a book and escaping the real world doesn’t have to be a solitary experience. You can enjoy the perks of reading with your significant other, enjoying the way that the story helps to blur out any noise and distraction from the world around you.

Couples’ reading can turn into a habit, where both know this is their quality time together. It creates a sense of structure, shared priorities, and enjoyment that can only benefit a relationship or marriage.

Discovering One Another

Reading together helps you discover hidden or lesser known aspects of your significant other. Taking turns in recommending your next read helps you unravel aspects of your significant other’s personality and temperament you didn’t know existed.

Who knows, you might discover you have yen for biographies – something you didn’t find out until you tried the literary recommendations from your partner.

Unplug and Interact

Reading a book together is an affordable activity that doesn’t involve any screens — although you could both read on tablets and e-readers.

The tactile experience of book reading offers the most stimulation for your senses. Couples’ reading is an opportunity to share the same passion and excitement about a character. It gives you the chance to understand each others’ references and make jokes about the plights and achievements you read about in the narrative.

Nurturing Relationships

Reading is a unique experience. Share it with someone you care for and love, and you’ll enjoy it even more. This doesn’t necessarily have to be your lover or spouse; it could be your friend, your son, or your mother. After all, there are so many relationships we could take loving care of, and reading forms bonds between people everywhere.

Don’t Be Happy With Tons Of Likes – Engagement Rates Are Way Better!

Do Facebook “likes” reflect your brand’s social media marketing success? Not really. If you want to accurately assess your social media marketing efforts, don’t look at the number of likes your Facebook posts, shares and photos are getting. Rather, look at your engagement rate.

Your engagement rate on Facebook is a great indicator of success. You’ll want to look at it often and adjust your marketing strategies according to what you find. Seeing how people engage with you online tells you what works, what doesn’t, and what needs to be revisited.

“People talking about this”

So what is your company’s engagement rate? This is a valuable insight that Facebook offers for business on Facebook. It helps you understand and quantify engagement with your brand.

The “People Talking About This” result is simply the number of actual people talking about a post you’ve shared, divided by the total number of likes your page has. This metric has a number of other indicators you need to check often, like “post reach” and “engagement.”
Engagement refers to the total of all user actions people took in relation to your page, including likes, shares, clicks, and comments. Post Reach, on the other hand, is the number of unique people who’ve read a specific post.

These metrics are very important as they indicate the engagement rate of your Facebook page. Learning to use these tools will give you tips on how to optimize your social media marketing campaign.

Improve Facebook engagement

Now that you know how to understand Facebook engagement rate, here are some ways you can boost it.

Flawless grammar – Many people don’t care for bad grammar. Others will post a negative comment or never check your page again because of a grammar mistake.

Since there are all kinds of users that engage with your Facebook page you need to ensure your text is free from grammatical mistakes to avoid grammar casualties.

Have someone proofread your posts before publishing them or use a spellchecker to catch those your eyes cannot. Either way, always double-check your grammar.

No spelling mistakes – Just like grammar, spelling is crucial. Your posts need to be free of misspellings. If you know you’re prone to mistaking “your” and “you’re” in your writing, be sure to double check each post. Run your posts through a spellchecker and always, always read your posts twice before hitting the publish button.

If you want to increase engagement on Facebook you cannot afford to distract your community and followers with spelling and grammar mistakes, can you?

Vary your content – People get easily bored and are more often than not “skim and scan” users.

That’s why it’s crucial that you alternate between different types of content. Publish your own posts, share those of others, switch between images and memes and links and longer posts.

Variety ensures the reader will be coming back for more, and if you only publish posts, people won’t engage as much with your site. Offer them a variety of interesting, relevant posts and you will increase the number of likes, shares and comments on your posts!

Typing Faster Can Help Boost Your Productivity

Mindfulness boosts your productivity. The once-lauded “multitasking” has fallen out of favor as its usefulness in overall productivity has been debunked by studies time and time again. Multitasking actually risks depleting your energy and the focus necessary to complete a project successfully. No matter how badly we want to believe we can simultaneously write an email, talk on the phone with a client, and watch the funny cat video a friend sent, it doesn’t work.

According to the American Psychological Association, multitasking entails a lot of risks and costs for the multitasker. Not only does it impede our overall productivity, it has a negative impact on each task we engage with. For example, it raises the risk of making more mistakes.

Your brain can afford to engage in light multitasking quite easily, but when it comes to demanding and complicated cognitive tasks, the brain just loses it after a certain point. By practicing mindfulness, by contrast, you increase your ability to focus and you decrease your susceptibility to give in to the temptations multitasking presents.

With an advanced ability to leverage your focus and attention, you instantly energize yourself to do well in a stressful or demanding environment. Mindfulness gives you a productivity boost. When you’re mindful, multitasking won’t affect your ability to concentrate, because you practice self-control and carry on with the task you’re engaged in, no matter what.

But what does typing have to do with mindfulness and productivity, you might ask?

Well, typing fast(er) brings you into a high-paced cognitive mode that makes you more focused. When you are focused, it’s harder for you to come out of your productivity mode when you’re using accelerated typing techniques, and less likely to think about looking at your inbox or switching to a less demanding task.

Touch typing requires attention and increased focus to be done correctly. What’s more important, touch typing can be both a practice and an end in itself.

Touch typing will help you improve your mindfulness. Next type you touch type, make an effort to stick to it for at least 5 minutes. Don’t stop to think, don’t stop to correct anything. Keep the words coming and you will notice that soon your productivity will soar. Undivided attention can do wonders for your efficiency. Don’t underestimate its power.

Brand Mentions On Twitter Catch Consumer Attention


What drives consumer action? A new Twitter study titled “Discovering the Value of Earned Audiences” reveals that when consumers are exposed to brand-based tweets, this positively affects their online and offline behavior.

The study findings were revealing.

Consumers engage with brands, they don’t just follow them. The study confirmed that brands drive the conversation on Twitter and improve the way people interact with them. Active brands tend to have not just passive followers, but potential consumers that are keen to engage with that brand.

People don’t see brands as remote, faceless companies; they see a media-savvy company as a responsive, social, and friendly entity they can engage in conversation with, a fact that adds further importance in how much leverage brands actually have over consumer opinion.

Brand engagement on Twitter improves consumer action. The study revealed that half of the 12,000 study respondents took action immediately after seeing a brand tweet. This action included visiting the brand’s site or Twitter page.

Brand engagement improves purchase decisions. The figures are indeed telling; almost 1 in 5 Twitter users will eagerly retweet a tweet that mentions a brand. And the same percentage (19%) is contemplating a purchase after being exposed to a brand-related tweet, proof that brand-based social engagement does drive consumer behavior.

Non-brand originating tweets encourage more action from consumers. When tweets originate from a non-brand related source, then Twitter users are more likely to take some online or offline action related to that brand. Only 43% of the survey respondents confirmed that brand-initiated tweets encouraged them to act.

Other important figures to consider:

8 in 10 respondents said they had mentioned a brand in their own Twitter activity at some point during the measurement period (September 2013 – March 2014).

20% of the respondents said they do online research on a brand after being exposed to a brand tweet.

About 58% of the 13-to-17 age group take action after being exposed to a brand tweet.

This Twitter study is revealing for both big and smaller brands and companies. Social media marketing does pay off as consumers engage with brands in ways that are profitable and beneficial for the brand.

By crafting shareable tweets you can increase user engagement with your brand or product and ultimately even boost your sales. Remember that a compelling tweet needs the following ingredients:

– Relevant and targeted vocabulary
– Catchy intro
– A call to action
– An image or video
– Original, witty content
– Brevity
– Tweet (about) news
