Is Facebook Right for You? | Business 2 Community | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Often these days, content marketers are syndicating content across platforms in social media, Facebook included. The CMI, for example, noted that 80% of B2B content marketers are now posting content through Facebook. In any content marketing play, it’s almost inevitable that Facebook will be brought up.

 

But too often, people expect sponsored stories, a couple of funny posts and some good videos will be enough to change the very nature of their brand in the social space. But let’s take a step back for a moment and look at what exactly is happening in the space. Social media relies on people having an implicit trust in one another, and for brands, it becomes very difficult to put your faith or trust in something so abstract. Take a piece of research by Forrester. It suggests that the majority of content being posted by brands just isn’t being trusted. There are a few reasons why this might be the case....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Where is content marketing struggling and how can it be improved? At the end of the day, for consumers, the key question is can they trust the brand and the information it shares?

Who do we trust? | my 2 cents

Many companies work hard to create and maintain visibility. That's what keeps those of us ion advertising and public relations busy. But how much effort do those companies put into building and maintaining a good reputation?

 

Some, like American Express and McDonald's, put heavy emphasis on PR, community relations and customer service as a way to secure a good reputation with customers and potential customers.


A survey just released by Mediabistro makes interesting reading.  The poll, by Harris, got feedback from about 19,000 people at random....

True or False? Pay Attention to Structure to Tell if a Story is Made Up

True or False? Pay Attention to Structure to Tell if a Story is Made Up | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

"Psychologists and psychotherapists have long relied on the power of narrative storytelling to help their patients make sense of their world. In fact, it's been said that we are our narratives. For evidence that this may be true, pay attention to how people shape their stories about themselves. As it turns out, there is a big difference between the way we narrate events that have really happened to us and those we've invented."

Love this article! We now have a storytelling lie detector kit. As storytelling rises in popularity in a whole host of business applications, keeping our antenna sharp for fabrications is going to be important.

 

Remember these 'tells' and let's keep on focusing on authenticity.

 

Thanks Gregg Morris @greggvm for finding and sharing this article!
