Social Network Overload - Infographic | Managing Social Media Risks | Scoop.it

How often have you checked your social media accounts today? Feeling unplugged is a problem for many people.  This infographic from mylife.com illustrates how people are addicted to social media, and what they rather do than give up their Internet lifeline. 

 

Two out of three people are afraid they’re missing something important on email, Facebook, Twitter, or other accounts. In the same survey, three out of five people wished there was a solution to monitor their various communication options.

This infographic is based on the survey by Harris, and conveys a growing trend—social media overload...

Christine Harris-Smyth's insight:

The anxiety about missing out is not something new - it is like a child who doesn't want to go to bed when the others (adults, older children) are still having fun. It is simply in a new arena. This being connected all the time to digital media and communications devices is the new thing - not the anxiety.

 

We'll learn to live with it - nice infographic.

The 3 Worst Ways Companies Waste Money in Social Media +1 (valuing follower# over engagement)

The 3 Worst Ways Companies Waste Money in Social Media +1 (valuing follower# over engagement) | Managing Social Media Risks | Scoop.it

The promotion of platform brands is a balancing act. Ideally we should be promoting the benefits of our brands in a meaningful way on all platforms. It is fine to leverage off the social media platform brand but this comes with risks. Wouldn't you look stupid if you put all your eggs in say AOL and MySpace once upon a time...

 

Any community manager or company feeling comfortable or chuffed about follower numbers and not working an integrated marketing and analysis strategy is most likely - and I can't put it better than this - a fool.

worth looking at this for fantastic infographic re Cyberstalking

worth looking at this for fantastic infographic re Cyberstalking | Managing Social Media Risks | Scoop.it
Many of us use the term “Facebook stalking” harmlessly.

 

"Serious cyberstalking is far more common than we think. A recent survey reveals that 88% of us regularly check our ex’s profiles and a full 70% of us spy from a mutual friend’s account. The study also reveals that those of us who stalk our exes and their new flames on Facebook spend more time drinking and less time dating than those who just hit “Remove Friend” after a break-up. Even if you’re not causing anyone any harm, if cyberstalking disrupts your life in noticeable ways, you may have a problem. Social media addiction is linked not only to extending heartbreak, but contributing to long term depression and low self esteem issues. So, it may be time to step away from the computer."

How to Know if You're Spread Too Thin in Social Media

How to Know if You're Spread Too Thin in Social Media | Managing Social Media Risks | Scoop.it
Is your company involved in too many social media outposts? Are you active because you need to be, or because you think you should be? Here's how to tell.
Christine Harris-Smyth's insight:

essentially refer to 80s band The Smiths for this one 

 

1. Look at where you are spending your time creating & managing social media

2. Look at the returns you are getting from each platform and include measurable results in your analysis

3. Sing "What difference would it make" in your head and STOP using the ones that don't make sense

 

Caveat: some of us like to test things out which is fine. It does leave a trail of lame platform breadcrumbs. I am guilty of this but sometimes it is an efficient way to evaluate new stuff and trends. OR we can just let other clever and hard working people do it for us.

Identity Theft Is a Growing Risk in Health Care -  potential impact of private data misuse or abuse. | Managing Social Media Risks | Scoop.it

Privacy and data ownership is a major 21st Century issue. The importance and ownership of data is a matter which should be of greater public concern than seems current. This is not because of conspiracy theories but because of the increasing relieance on data mining and modelling for social and commercial services - alongside the potential impact of private data misuse or abuse.

 

Identity theft is more rampant in health care than any other U.S. industry, according to the Ponemon Institute's third-annual report on patient privacy and data security.
