"We all know social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are some of the best marketing tools for a business. But what happens when tweets go wrong?"
EXCELLENT ARTICLE AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY ME.
4 Lessons to be learned on what not to do or expect on your next twitter campaign:
• Do not exploit a tragic event by utilizing product placement in a tweet meant to commemorate it.• Don't expect your # to send a story where you want it to go. A campaign can take on a life of its own. Interaction is good but the feedback may not be positive.• Don't SPAM messages, engage and allow users to spread the message themselves. Social Media is for conversation not for billboard advertising space.
• Do not use tweets as blackmail. Guilt is not a tool for marketing.
"Business should avoid using guilt or tragedy to gain awareness of a product." A campaign should look effortless to consumers but invest time and effort to ensure that you avoid the above 4 'NOT TO DOs'.
Imagine if everybody you knew in high school could anonymously broadcast the meanest things they ever thought.

As Google+ has over 300m active users (and growing), I am always keen to learn how I can use the platform more effectively. This week, I was very lucky to catch up with Google+ guru Martin Shervington in a Hangout before his talk at Social Media Marketing World. The downside of a Google Hangout was that I could see he was on the sunny West Coast of the US while I was sitting in the dark in London, but on the positive side I learned a huge amount about how to maximise my use of Google+. Martin also shared his advice for people new to the platform.
I am not a big Google+ fan. But I know there are many people who can not bother with all the fluff and frills of facebook. They prefer the straightforward business nature of Google+.
