Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business

Social Media Tools That Support Google+: Solutions for Small Business | New to Social Media | Scoop.it

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.

 

However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.

 

In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.

The State of Flipboard and Rise of Mobile Curation [INFOGRAPHIC] | New to Social Media | Scoop.it

Flipboard is a personal magazine made up of the things you care about most. Recently, it surpassed 50 million readers and released a new feature that allows users to create their own magazines. Readers can now collect and curate the web pages they like into these magazines on Flipboard.

 

Since the new edition of Flipboard was announced several weeks ago, an additional 3 million readers have joined (for a total of 53 million currently). Also, more than 500,000 magazines have been created since too, given this great new way to curate content for mobile devices. In fact, there are over 6 billion pages flipped per month! More than 50% of Flipboard 2.0 users are reading magazines every day. 9am is the top time of the day for reading, while 7pm is the peak time for sharing. Some of the most popular magazines by publishers include The Esquire Interviews (by Esquire), Prefab Perfection (by Dwell), Women We Love (by Esquire), and The Beatles (by Rolling Stone). Using Flipboard is a truly an amazing experience and the site could be looking at exponential growth in the years to come as mobile devices completely take over!

Optimizing For Facebook Graph Search: SEO Meets Social

Optimizing For Facebook Graph Search: SEO Meets Social | New to Social Media | Scoop.it

As Facebook Graph Search evolves and marketers begin to come to grips with the opportunities provided from the social graph, it becomes clear that a combination of both search and social media tactics are required if brands aim to improve visibility in the graph search engine results.

 

Just as on-page optimization is vital to SEO, Facebook page optimization is the first place to start on your Graph Search strategy. Ensure that you have selected the appropriate category, and plan for your basic information (such as the short description and the elements on your About page) to contain descriptive keywords, just like search. Make sure your page is relevant, always up to date, and publicly viewable and sharable.

Again I think you found a great article and your insight is spot on. I think the article sums up the communications mix quite well, especially the importance of evaluating a campaign. I think too often it is easy to plan an extensive campaign but forget about evaluating it - evaluation is the time to see what worked/didn't work and improve on it for the next campaign so it is obviously critically important.
