Different Social Networks: personal vs. professional use [INFOGRAPHIC]

Different Social Networks: personal vs. professional use [INFOGRAPHIC] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

The Mindset Divide – how people use different social networks is extremely interesting. In this infographic, we compare the use of personal and professional networks, and gain knowledge as to what some of the key differences are between how people engage, interact and use social media, whether for personal or business purposes.

A few key takeaways:

 

The emotions portrayed on personal networks include nostalgia, having fun and distraction – professional networks are concentrated on achievement, aspiration and success. People spend time on personal networks, where-as they invest time on professional networks. People use personal networks to socialise, whereas professional networks are used to search for career opportunities and stay in touch. Users expect personal updates on personal networks, and more career-based and current affairs updates on professional networks.

 

View the complete infographic for a better understanding of how personal and professional social networks compare and tips on how to optimize your social profiles to maximize results...

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC]

The 5 Types of Social Followers that Every Business Needs [INFOGRAPHIC] | DV8 Digital Marketing Tips and Insight | Scoop.it

When you’re a brand establishing yourself on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, in the very early days you’re usually less concerned about who is following you and more about how many...

It’s superficial, of course, but large numbers of followers on Twitter and Likes on your Facebook Page do have provide a level of social proof that makes you more attractive to new followers, and new Likes – when someone sees that you’re already popular, they’re far more likely to make the leap and get on board themselves.

But for businesses looking to maximize the ROI of their social media strategy, how many is always far, far less important than who. Pretty soon you realise that a big number is meaningless unless it’s actually converting into brand awareness, website footfall and sales – so who should you be looking to attract?

Early adopters, social sharers and power-users are all pivotal in helping your brand reach critical max, but they’re not alone. Indeed, lurkers and even haters can become powerful influencers if you take the time to engage and inspire them.

This infographic takes a look at the five types of social follower that every business needs...

kendall irvine's comment, September 25, 2013 8:20 PM
I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.
Christine IMC's curator insight, September 26, 2013 10:15 PM

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

Selina EverHungry Nihalani's curator insight, October 6, 2013 6:23 PM

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.
