Social Network Overload - Infographic

Social Network Overload - Infographic | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | 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 curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:37 PM

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.

100 Things to Tweet About Besides Yourself!

100 Things to Tweet About Besides Yourself! | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

The number one question I hear when it comes to Twitter is “what do I talk about?”

Given that most people do NOT know what to talk about, many wind up either boring their social community to death or they turn them off because they default to talking about themselves.

Never fear. You do not need to default to tweeting like a self centered, babbling idiot.

Check out these 100 ideas to inspire, connect, entertain and delight your audiences. No, not every one of them is going to work for every tweeter and every audience. However, many of them will work for most people and most businesses.

As I always say “there is only one way to do social media, and that is the way that works for you and your business.”  Listen to the advice others have for you, but determine priorities for investment of time, resource, conversation content based upon your objectives and goals.

Remember your number one goal is to inspire and connect with your audience. Help them achieve their goals and by default you will achieve yours. Inspire – connect – achieve! Don’t over complicate it.

Timing Is Everything: 5 Tools To Share At The Right Time

Timing Is Everything: 5 Tools To Share At The Right Time | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

A common mistake made in the world of social media marketing is failing to share content at the right time for maximum exposure.

 It might seem like a small matter, but it can make a huge difference in everything from traffic to reposts. Those who manage to discover the best days and even hours to share see a significant growth in activity from their followers, and even manage to snare some new ones on a regular basis.

How do you find these times? In the past, it was all a matter of trial and error. But such a method is imprecise and takes a lot of time and effort that can be better spent elsewhere. Instead, trying using a collection of tools to get the results you are looking for.

A Google Plus Overview: Breaking Through Misconceptions | Social Media Today

A Google Plus Overview: Breaking Through Misconceptions | Social Media Today | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

There are tons of rumors floating around about how Google Plus will help you with your SEO rankings. While this may or may not true, it shouldn't be the sole reason to use G+. The reason to use G+ is to connect and converse with your audience. If you only take one thing away from my engagement series, it should be this: each social network is unique in its own way, with its own personality and set of best practices. Knowing how each social network operates is going to give you a head start in your social media marketing by allowing you to connect to your past, present, and future audience in an acceptable manner. As I continue my engagement series, in the next two posts we will switch focus to Google Plus. Google Plus is the newest of the group, and like it or not, it is Google, and thus should not be ignored....

The Fast Guide To Hashtags [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Fast Guide To Hashtags [INFOGRAPHIC] | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

What is a hashtag? Well, on Twitter – and increasingly everywhere else – a hashtag is a word or phrase (with no spaces or punctuation) prefixed with the # symbol, offering users an easy way to communicate around a single theme.

For example: #SocialMedia.

While the history of the hashtag (certainly in its modern use) traces back to IRC, it was only with the rise and dominance of Twitter that this powerful tool really came to prominence.

It’s a community of people who give a damn – just like you.

GOOD is “a global community working towards individual and collective progress.” It has an Upworthy feel to it, with members “liking” (in a sense) their favorite community actions - a clearinghouse to connect with likeminded folks.

Got Twitter? You’ve got a 24-7 customer service call line, whether you like it or not.

The evolution of Twitter as a real-time channel leaves an expectation with your fans that you are present. You may think of Twitter as a broadcast channel, but chances are your fans think of it as a real-time channel for contacting you. Whether you are a higher education news service or a restaurant promoting your daily specials, if you’re not monitoring feedback on your Twitter channel, you may be facilitating a negative online event or miss an opportunity to thank a new brand advocate.

Social Media Vocabulary and Grammatical Standards – Part Two

Social Media Vocabulary and Grammatical Standards – Part Two | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

It always surprises me the way words wriggle their way into our vocabularies. Think about it! Fifteen years ago, did any of us “Google” anything? No way! (I barely used email!) If you decided to write something along the lines of, “Totally enjoying #Sunday #Funday, don’t want the weekend to end! #NoWork #SoMuchForSleepingIn,” people would look at you like you were nuts! It’s stuff like this that shows you just how much all of our social and professional spheres have changed, and it’s even more shocking to realize these transitions have occurred in a short amount of time! After all, Twitter just celebrated its 7th anniversary (I have been officially married longer than that) and Facebook will hit its first decade in less than two years.

Typical Facebook. You wait for a new or significant change to emerge and then all of a sudden, a number of them are revealed at once. It has a habit of announcing new features shortly after it holds a major event like its new page redesign.

 

Now that’s been followed by a number of new additions and changes to desktop, mobile and its advertising product, which you may or may not have kept up with. Since it’s been an eventful month for the social media network, here’s what you need to know.

6 Methods For Efficient Social Media Marketing

6 Methods For Efficient Social Media Marketing | Better know and better use Social Media today (facebook, twitter...) | Scoop.it

There are only so many hours in the day for you to get tasks done. On top of your normal work, you also have to go to meetings, schedule work, network and ensure that your online channels are up to date and that there’s a strategy in place.

 

However, while there was a time where we struggled to make time for digital marketing, it’s now a case where we perhaps put too much time into it. Being active online is great to see, but it shouldn’t come at the expense of your other tasks. All that time dwelling on what to post, figuring out what content people will like and how it ties into your business are things that mightn’t seem significant, but quickly add up over time.

 

If you don’t have a proper handle on it, you can end up being constantly busy, but not being productive. If this sounds like something you experience regularly, here’s what you can do to reverse the trend.

 

Create A Schedule And Stick To It

It’s a simple idea but it’s amazing how few actually bother to put one together.

 

Prepare In Advance

That said, there’s nothing wrong with preparing content in advance as there are always ideas, posts and images that aren’t time sensitive.

 

Break Down And Delegate

Not all businesses can afford the luxury of a community manager so if you have a small team, why not break up duties between each other?

 

Cross-Posting

So long as you don’t resort to automating the process, which can work against you since it shows you didn’t put time into it, then you can post the same image/video on another account.

 

Less Is More

If you’re tweeting and posting regularly, that’s great. However, if it’s a case that each post is getting low levels of engagement, you may want to reconsider your content strategy.
