Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks | SMB Social Media Monitor | Scoop.it

Interesting and very informative piece by Brian Solis for Social Media Today.

 

This is part 6 of a series of posts where Brian introduces his new Book The End of Business as Usual.  

 

I must tell you that if you haven't gotten a copy of this book, you should, it is excellent, timely and relevant!

 

To paraphrase - social media is becoming part of our cultural fabric and even as we witness businesses, governments, sports teams, and almost every organization socialize communication efforts today,

 

****much of what we see is merely the beginning of something that will one day become something far more important than the medium itself.

 

****it is about how people are spending their time, interacting and connecting with one another, and what happens as a result.

 

To demonstrate the point, there are some profound findings from the recently released Nielsen Social Media Report.

25 Google+ tips and tricks

25 Google+ tips and tricks | SMB Social Media Monitor | Scoop.it

Google+ unveiled itself to the public amidst a chorus of praise and adulation from techies all over the globe. Unfortunately, it also earned a good amount of scorn from individuals who were not ready to grasp the unique philosophy Google+ was promoting. That philosophy is one of openness.

 

Unlike Facebook, Google+ is designed to connect strangers, and inspire collaboration and contribution. It has proven to be an amazing platform for promoting ideas, brands and people.

 

Since its early rollout, Google+ has forced competitors to begin evolving, inspiring platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to develop new ways of thinking about social media and the functionality they offer.
