Rules of Social Engagement

Rules of Social Engagement | Networked Nonprofits and Social Media | Scoop.it

Social media platforms have become almost mandatory to increase sales and better customer relationships. To use social media effectively, and to your advantage, you must ensure actual engagement between yourself and your target audience takes place.   Mostly, social media is about using content creation and thought-provoking statements to engage your target audience, with minimal efforts of obvious sales-pitches for your business.

Productivity and Creativity Often Seem at Odds, But Are They Really?

Productivity and Creativity Often Seem at Odds, But Are They Really? | Networked Nonprofits and Social Media | Scoop.it
Some work involves simple task completion; other projects require strategic thinking by an unfettered brain. Here's how to do both.
Beth Kanter's insight:

1. Recognize two types of functions and classify work life according to the “get work done” bucket and the “think strategically” bucket. 

2. Block off at least two to three hours on a weekly basis that are completely free from distractions and interruptions. This will allow the brain time to slow down and become immersed in the problem at hand, something very important and quite effective for engendering creativity. The hard part is having the strength to stick to this type of a schedule for two to three months to realize deeply satisfying, reinforcing results.  

3. Finally, take the time to brainstorm with trusted peers or an insightful manager on a weekly basis to stimulate different ways of thinking and allow for problems to be approached with fresh, creative perspectives. This is  a great way to learn from others and strengthen work networks, which everyone needs, wants and likes.

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics

Social Media Best Practices for Infographics | Networked Nonprofits and Social Media | Scoop.it

Sharing your infographic that’s hosted on your website/blog and engaging the social sharing potential is key to maximizing the work you put in to creating your infographics.  

Each social network has different image display requirements.

For example, tall infographics do not present well on Facebook. Facebook outlines horizontal images and a ratio of 1200 w x 627 h, meaning you may need to create some sharing images to drive social viewers to the main infographic.


The team at Lemonly put together a great infographic covering keys for social sharing on:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest
  • LinkedIn

Have a look and bookmark for future reference...
