The Future Of Social Media Is Not What We Think

We use social media now as children use a hammer. Sometimes we hit a nail's head, but mostly we inflict damage on ourselves and those around us. As we grow up with social media marketing we will see that its secret is the connections it brings and the way it changes US. 

I wrote about social media's "most important ROI" (http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/social-media-marketing-the-most-valuable-roi/ ) and would add to that view how social media changes the enterprise. A "social business" operates differently.

Social Businesses
* More Open.

* Listen More Than You Talk.

* Responsive, able to change based on feedback. 

* Environment rewards, encourages and asks for feedback.

* Many ways to provide feedback. 

* Feedback is actively curated into and feedback out of company. 

* Feedback scales (grows faster and faster). 

* There are KPIs for feedback. 

Social businesses measure, trend and respond to social stats. They develop meaningful KPIs for their social business and never simply plug and play. They are always present and accounted for.

Infographic: 36% of all shared links on Twitter are photos | Ken's Odds & Ends | Scoop.it

This infographic makes the interesting point that more than one-third of shared links on Twitter are photos.

This makes a lot of sense considering successful content on Facebook, Pinterest and Google Plus, but it’s an important reminder that Twitter is more than 140 character posts anymore...
