10 Myths about YouTube Users [Infographic] | Daily Infographic

10 Myths about YouTube Users [Infographic] | Daily Infographic | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

I was recently offered a free cable subscription and I said “Why? I don’t have a TV, and all my shows are on YouTube.” I would like to think that none of the stereotypes listed here apply to me. Fortunately, usage statistics can shed light on the reality of negative stereotypes of YouTube users.

The stereotypes in this infographic are really stereotypes of internet users, or Internauts, in general. I think these negative generalizations came out of the fact that computers were largely marketed as toys for boys when personal computers were first coming out. Of course, computers, and the internet, are much, much more than that, but when people kept interacting with this thing that had been presented as a toy, it was interpreted by the wider public as immature and unhealthy.

As this infographic on the growth of the internet shows, internet use exploded in the decade between 2002 and 2012, and is only increasing as more and more of the world comes online. Sterotypes of internet users are going to die pretty quickly as the vast majority of people on earth join the ranks....

Why You Need to Own Your Review Content

Why You Need to Own Your Review Content | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Customer review content is powerful. Are you taking advantage of it, or letting another company benefit?


We’ve said it before but we’ll say it again – you need to own your review content, not let a third-party review site benefit from it. Reviews can boost your SEO, increase direct traffic, help you with online reputation management, and more. Make sure you’re getting these benefits.

It’s time to free your business from Yelp and other review sites and start using your valuable review content to earn SEO credit, direct traffic, and dynamic marketing content....

Get your copy of the Bazaarvoice CGC Index | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Welcome to the modern state of consumer behavior. Today, people express their opinions about products and brands freely in the form of reviews, questions and answers, social media posts, pictures, videos, and even quick chat comments.

At BAZAARVOICE, we call this consumer-generated content (CGC).

CGC refers to all forms of digital content that people create about a product or service they have experienced, used, purchased, or considered. CGC can be everything from a critical rating to a comprehensive review, a picture, a video, or a brief comment; it can be a rich, experiential story, or an uncontrollable emotional outburst. Far more often than not, the time and effort to create and share this content is driven by the will of people to help, inform, protect, entertain, or inspire confidence in other consumers.

These are the people we know, love, and specialize in: both the advocates and detractors. Their voices help brands and retailers connect with others when and where they shop....

Rolling out…

New redesigned search experience, customizable movies, and more<br/><br/>Rolling out… | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Rolling out now, the latest Google Photos update helps you find your photos faster with a new search bar. Start searching in one tap, or scroll down after tapping on the search bar to see faces, places, and photo types from your library.

In addition, Google Photos now offers the ability to customize automatically created movies with your own music, photos, and videos, so it’s easier than ever to make the perfect video after a holiday or trip. It’s also perfect for Mother’s Day – which you knew was coming up on May 8, right?

Finally, it’s now possible to rename or delete device folders you’ve created and manage your photos on SD cards by adding a new folder, copying, and moving photos.

These changes make Google Photos faster and easier to use than ever, and will be coming soon to iOS.

Jeff Domansky's insight:

The new Google Photos may (or may not) search photos better but from the comments, many users feel essential features were taken away and other potentially better features were not added. Time will tell.

Snapchat User `Stories' Fuel 10 Billion Daily Video Views

Snapchat User `Stories' Fuel 10 Billion Daily Video Views | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

More than a third of Snapchat’s daily users create “Stories,” broadcasting photos and videos from their lives that last 24 hours, according to people familiar with the matter. Now users are watching 10 billion videos a day on the application, up from 8 billion in February. Snapchat on Thursday confirmed the number of video views.


Snapchat is sharing the new stories statistic with investors to help explain that its app is focused on serving people who create and broadcast content, not just consume it. The first screen of the app is a camera, prompting users to share what they’re seeing or doing. Users can decide whether to send their snap directly to friends, where it disappears after it’s watched, or post it to their Snapchat Story, where it can be viewed for 24 hours by a broader audience.


That design gives the company an edge in a market where Facebook Inc. is building a business quickly. The social networking leader, with 1.65 billion users, started making live video a priority this year, prompting people to create and share their experiences in the news feed. Facebook has also said it may be willing to pay for live content....

Snapchat just keeps growing.

We've Been Approaching The Internet Of Things All Wrong

We've Been Approaching The Internet Of Things All Wrong | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

For years now, we've been hearing about how the Internet of Things will connect every object in our homes. And for years, the vast majority of those objects stay dumb.

"What companies are struggling with when it comes to the broad label of the IoT on the consumer side is what the actual problem trying to be solved is," says Rob Chandhouk, president of the sensor startup Helium. "Look at Samsung's new smart fridge, which they're marketing as the hub for your home. Do you think of your refrigerator as a hub?"

Chandhouk doesn't believe that the IoT will be making any big breakthroughs with consumers any time soon. Instead, Helium is betting big IoT's real utility is on the commercial and industrial side of things. It looks like numerous big players agree, based on a recent $20 million Series B funding round including Alphabet's investment arm GV, previously known as Google Ventures. But it's another investor in the latest round that gives us our clearest hint of where IoT is going: Munich Re, an insurance and risk management company....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Helium is betting that IoT will move to commercial and industrial applications before consumer products get a foothold. And there are some good examples that show the direction seems right.

Here's A Toolkit For Creating A Loyal Instagram Following

Here's A Toolkit For Creating A Loyal Instagram Following | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Meet Frank, the cheeky Instagram persona of the Australian skincare startup Frank Body.

Frank likes to casually call you "babe," jokes about wanting to get in the shower with you, talks about your buns, and doesn't go more than five hours without popping up on your feed. If you were to meet him in a bar, you might find him a bit of a sleaze. But as a social media personality? Frank is hilarious.

According to cofounder Erika Geraerts, Frank's been crucial in helping Frank Body, which is known for its coffee-based scrubs, build brand awareness around the world. "We were essentially dealing with a product that looked like dirt in a bag," Geraerts says. "We wanted to cut through the beauty industry jargon—be it scientific, flowery, or hippy—and speak to our customer in an honest, direct, and frank way. From here our lovable character of Frank was born."

Frank Body has used Instagram as its primary marketing tool. "It allowed us to take risks and to connect with our customers directly without the costs of traditional advertising," Geraerts says. In three years, the account has garnered 682,000 followers, and Geraerts says this has been crucial to driving sales.

 

The company has managed to sell over 1.5 million products across 149 countries since its launch. It is now so popular in the United Arab Emirates and Russia that the company is planning to set up local operations in those countries. "It took time, consistency, and dirty work," she says....
