Bitcoin Hovers Near $8,000 Level as Investors Weigh Twitter Ban

Bitcoin Hovers Near $8,000 Level as Investors Weigh Twitter Ban

Bitcoin swung between gains and losses near the $8,000 level, paring an earlier rebound, as investors digested the decision by Twitter Inc. to ban advertisements for initial coin offerings and token sales on its service.

The largest cryptocurrency traded flat at $7,847.87 as of 11 a.m. in Hong Kong, according to consolidated Bloomberg pricing. The digital currency had earlier jumped as much as 4.8 percent, reversing an overnight decline that took Bitcoin down to about $7,850. Rival coins Ripple, Ether and Litecoin also erased gains. Bitcoin remains down 25 percent in March.

Twitter confirmed Monday it’s banning the advertisements on its platform due to concern the content is often related to deception and fraud, according to a company spokesperson. The decision comes after Facebook Inc. banned cryptocurrency ads in January and Alphabet Inc.’s Google said it would do the same starting in June.

Since Bitcoin reached a peak of almost $20,000 in mid-December at the height of the cryptocurrency frenzy, the digital currency has lost more than half of its value as investors weigh the future of the emerging space amid intensifying scrutiny from global regulators.

Cboe Global Markets Inc., which was the first U.S. exchange to list Bitcoin futures last year, continues to have plans to introduce more cryptocurrency-related products. The exchange operator prodded U.S. securities regulators Monday to consider approving crypto exchange-traded funds in a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

4 Ways to Spread a Tweet Beyond Your Audience

If you want to build your Twitter audience, spam isn't going to get you there. The key to connecting with potential followers is to offer something useful such as a tip, laugh, or link. If you aren't constantly talking about your product or service, you can establish a relationship based on respect rather than making a sale.

social media sharing

Twitter, like many social media networks, can be an excellent marketing tool. But reaching out to the right audience is a challenge. Businesses and professionals that are new to Twitter have few, if any, followers, and without followers your tweet doesn't have an audience—or does it?

Tweets can reach more than just the Twitter users following your account—if you do it right. And when your tweets reach more than just your own followers, your number of followers will grow, too. Here are four strategies suggested from readers at WAHM to spread a tweet beyond your audience.

1. Be conversational, not spammy.

No one likes spam—so don't produce it. Some Twitter users send automatic, prewritten messages. While that may seem like a good way to build up your followers, don't give into the temptation. It's spam. Instead, take the time to follow users that are interested in similar topics to what your business offers—you can do this by doing a hashtag search. Follow the people that are talking about things relevant to your industry, and then join in on the conversation: follow them, retreat them, and favorite their tweets. When they see that you have something interesting to offer to the conversation (e.g., not spam), they'll follow you back.

2. Use hashtags.

Using hashtags (#workfromhome, #mom, #parent, etc.) is a good way to get your tweet to pop up in Twitter searches and acquire new followers interested in related topics. But using the right hashtag matters, too. Tools like RiteTag help you see what hashtags are being used and searched the most, so you can make the most impact with a single tweet.

3. Know your audience.

Who are you trying to reach out to on Twitter? Identify your audience—for most internet marketers, that's the person most likely to buy your product or use your service. Once you've narrowed down a group of people that's likely to use your business, target them specifically. Follow other businesses that have a similar audience. Search for hashtags that your audience might use and engage in those conversations. Instead of reaching out to a big audience with no impact, you'll reach out to a smaller audience, but actually have more useful reach.

4. Make your tweets useful.

Don't think of your tweets as a marketing tool, think of them as an outreach tool. Instead of posting boring tweets about your product, share tweets that offer value, like a tip, a laugh, or a useful link. Retweet other interesting posts relevant to your industry or audience. When people see you post things that are useful to them, they'll follow you. Once you've built up an audience, you can post tweets that are directly related to your product, but you should still try to make most of your tweets as useful or entertaining, or you'll lose followers.

Twitter can be a useful marketing tool. While the platform is free to use, you do need to invest time and effort into reaching out to your audience and growing your number of followers. By sharing conversational tweets, using hashtags, knowing your audience and sharing useful information, you can expand your reach beyond just your Twitter followers. And when you reach people who aren't your followers, many of them will start following you—creating a snowball effect that continually grows your audience.

Facebook Reach? LOL

What is your reach in Facebook?

Say you have a fanpage on Facebook and you post an interesting article or MEME and that post gets a reach of 1200 according to FB. You think thats pretty good. Then you submit another post and it generates a reach of 3200. You think to yourself, WOW, I AM doing good. But you are not doing as good as you should be.

The highest priority with my fanpage is to create posts that create engagement and spurs my fans to take action. When they take action in the form of liking the post, sharing the post or commenting on it it helps expand the reach of the post. Reach is the they key. However Facebook has changed their algorithm.

This from Facebook:

While the goal of News Feed is to show high quality posts to people, we wanted to better understand what high quality means. To do this we decided to develop a new algorithm to factor into News Feed. To develop it, we first surveyed thousands of people to understand what factors make posts from Pages high quality. Some of the questions we asked included:

  • Is this timely and relevant content?
  • Is this content from a source you would trust?
  • Would you share it with friends or recommend it to others?
  • Is the content genuinely interesting to you or is it trying to game News Feed distribution? (e.g., asking for people to like the content)
  • Would you call this a low quality post or meme?
  • Would you complain about seeing this content in your News Feed?

OK all of this seems good, but read more from Facebook:

We used the results of this survey to build a new machine learning system to detect content defined as high quality. The system uses over a thousand different factors, such as how frequently content from a certain Page is reported as low quality (e.g., hiding a Page post), how complete the Page profile is, and whether the fan base for a particular Page overlaps with the fan base of other known high quality Pages. Coming up with an algorithm to detect this is complex, and we will continue to refine it as we get more feedback.

So you see Facebook is actually controling how your fanpage perfoms and grows. Your reach is going to be what FB decides, not from your hard work and expense. They want you to advertise. They make money but they limit your ability to do the same.

When the Internet first started it was free and open to a wide range of ideas and opinons. Now establishment special interests are tying to put everyone onto a box and limit the social media users options for the benefit of a few "elites" The government is also trying to limit the Internet also because they think they know whats best for you.

There is a recent study that most successful people operate in large open networks where they are the link to people from different backgrounds. Read study here

Facebook for example limits you to a closed network  of only your FB friends and then limits the posts they see from you. So your reach on Facebook is limited and less than the Internet as a whole.

So if you are looking for a social network that is free and open and will not limit your entreprenual spirit, then you need to take a serious look at Markethive.  The ECO system for the Entrepreneur. Markethive will make you the key to connecting with the Internet and people like no other social network. Markethive will not limit you ever. It has all the tools you will need to make you entreprenual spirit soar to new heights.

I just got repinned! Do you still respect me?


I love being repinned on Pinterest. Each time this happens my chances of going viral gets better. The more people who see it, the bigger chances of people liking and sharing on Facebook and Twitter. The picture below is the one that was just repinned.



These are my pictures and my words. I made a crucial mistake with the picture above as I didn’t put my link in it. I try to do this with new pictures. See picture below bottom left.



Blogging is a great way to be successful. Many people don’t know where to start. I tell them all the same thing, just be yourself. In this blog post I am being Alan Zibluk. Alan Zibluk has a strange, peculiar sense of humor but enough people listen and like what he has to say.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Feel free to share (or like) anything I have done on Pinterest with others and feel free to follow me.
