Is Your Company A Social Media SNOB? Take Our You Know Your A Social Media Snob If...Test

Is Your Company A Social Media SNOB? Take Our You Know Your A Social Media Snob If...Test | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Social Media Snob Test
The purpose of social media is to connect, to BE SOCIAL. Better to NOT be on social media than to be on social and look like an arrogant snob. Not being on social can be forgiven. Being a snob in this day an age is difficult to forgie.

You Know Your Company Is A Social Media Snob If...

* You follow less than 50% of your Twitter followers.
- Following a tiny % of your followers is the ultimate snobbery because it limits communication (you can't DM unless you follow) and you can't REWARD unless you follow. 
- When an expert in your area with 10x the following as your company has (at the moment) follows you FOLLOW THEM BACK!!

* You company doesn't Retweet.
- When you Retweet you share someone's take. You are saying, "this is good enough to share" and that statement is a reward and and a way to "mentor" your space.

* Your company doesn't respond to @yourcompany notes.
- Not responding in a timely way to @yourcompany notes is an EPIC customer service fail.

* Your company isn't on GPlus.
- Time to come in for the big win AND Gplus is the most disruptive social net because of its proximity to high yield SEO (duy its GOOGLE) and most business verticals are nascent on GPlus because there is a learning curve.

* Your company isn't having conversations.
- If you are still using social media to push messages without listening and responding you look either clueless or a snob (and neither of those are good).

* Your Company isn't on Instagram or Pinterest.
- Marketing communication is becoming highly visual so to not be on either Instragram or Pinterest is snobby since it feels like insisting we continue to do things the old "talk about ourselves to ourselves" way. 

* Your company isn't creating video.
- Video is highly widget-ized and so easy to share content. Video is also a more universal language. I may not speak english but video, done right, can be a cross cultural tool.  


* Your company[s SMM is highly scripted.
- Days of scripting every interaction with customers is long gone.  

Don't be a social media snob either by intention or ignorance because being a SNOB on social media is the wrong signal to send...always.

Google+ Blends Social Networking and Community

Google+ Blends Social Networking and Community | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

This piece is from socialmediatoday, I selected it because there are some very interesting insights and questions about the future of google+ and their ability to build and maintain a strong social network and community.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**Social networks are fundamentally different from communities

 

**the two models are commonly interechanged and the fact that they are two very different models is often lost or overlooked

 

**a community can form within a social network & visa versa it's very difficult for a social network to force or facilitate community and for a community to force or facilitate a social network

 

**Social networks are interested in community as community tends to generate significant amounts of content

 


**As the age old adage goes, ‘content is king

 

**The reason content is king is because when combined with demographic and behavioral information it provides unmatched opportunities for targeting based on a users digital body language.

 

**Social network and community operators are essentially the brokers between advertisers and consumers.

 

**It is at the point these two parties meet that revenue opportunities exist

 

**‘networked community’ for want of a better term is unchartered waters

 

**it does provide a myriad of new opportunities and benefits to Google.

 

**Combine these with Google’s other well-adopted product lines such as Search, Gmail not forgetting the YouTube community and the possibilities begin to multiply.

Startups Should Use G+, And Here's Why

Startups Should Use G+, And Here's Why | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

GPlus Is For Startups
GPlus is a much misunderstood social network. That misunderstanding may stem from the fact it is not a social net. GPlus is really a tool suite with a social net sitting on top of it. There are several reasons G+ is great for startups including:

* Not As Crowded as other Social Nets.

* Better for long form content.

* Great for conversations.
* Hangouts on Air = create YouTube Videos automatically.

* There's a learning curve.

That last bullet is why we love G+. Since there is a bit of a learning curve, many aspects of the tool are not intuitive, the uncommitted are turned away. What is left is a group of power users ready, willing and able to contribute meaningful content, inspiration and awareness for your startup.

Try creating a committed tribe of power users on Facebook (hint: you can't). Share pictures of your new baby on Facebook, use GPlus to build your business.

4 Tips To Creatively Style Your Google+ Posts [Infographic] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
One thing most social networking services have in common is the inability to do something creative with your posts.

 

is there any social networking service out there that allows styling in the approach that word processors use? Well yes there is! As a matter of fact, one of the newest and most rapidly growing sites is actually doing just that.

 

Google+ has some “brackets” that you can use to style your posts, however it seems most people don’t know about them.

 

**There are 3 ways you can style your posts, and Simon Heyes put them together together a small guide for you all.
