10 Reasons Not To Block Someone On Twitter | Social Media | LEARNing To LEARN | Social Media - Addiction or Need | Scoop.it

One of the most ingenious aspects of Twitter is that if someone is annoying you or being rude, you can simply unfollow them or even block them. 

 

I’ve matured a lot since I got on Twitter years ago. I’ve learned that Twitter relationships and real life relationships are very similar. Just as you would think twice before kicking someone out of your real life, sometimes it might be best to think twice before kicking someone out of your Twitter life also.

Top Tips for Running Social Media Giveaways

Top Tips for Running Social Media Giveaways | Social Media - Addiction or Need | Scoop.it
Sweepstakes and contests on a brand’s social channels are a great way to gain followers. If you’ve done either, you know that many rules are in place and those rules have a lot of gray areas. If you’ve run a contest or sweepstakes and hearing there are actual rules about doing this is news to you, listen up! You don’t want to inadvertently get yourself, company or brand into trouble.

The rules confusion is exactly why the folks over at Shortstack asked their legal team to help them compile an easy to comprehend rules template for businesses and brands to follow. And if you don’t believe the gray areas, Shortstack CEO Jim Belosic said the template took a year and a half to construct:

An Ounce of Social Media Prep is Worth a Pound of Sales

An Ounce of Social Media Prep is Worth a Pound of Sales | Social Media - Addiction or Need | Scoop.it
Or, putting it another way, would you invest $1 to get $16 back? You’ve worked hard to get this opportunity with your dream client. It would be a shame to blow that now. A $100,000 sale will yield an average of $10,000 in commissions for most B2B straight commission salespeople. Is $10,000 worth an extra couple of hours of prep work that will maximize your chances of landing this account? I would think so. There is nothing worse than losing a sale and then arriving at the uncomfortable, yet honest, appraisal that you could have done more.

As the old saying goes … “There is never time to do it right but, always enough time to do it over.” The problem is, with sales, you might never get that do-over and nor will you be spending those commission dollars. Bummer. Do your homework and be prepared. For that matter, you should have been doing your research before you even started to chase them.

Twitter Introduces Autoplay Video; Will Only Charge For Ads 100% In View For 3 Seconds

Twitter Introduces Autoplay Video; Will Only Charge For Ads 100% In View For 3 Seconds | Social Media - Addiction or Need | Scoop.it
Taking dead aim at the lucrative market for video advertising, Twitter announced today that it will start serving autoplay video to its users.

The move is no surprise. Given how well Facebook has been leveraging autoplay — to the tune of 4 billion views a day — it was only a matter of time before Twitter introduced its own way to entice more people to watch video on its platform.

With today’s move, Twitter is also displaying video larger within people’s timelines, the better to compete for  the estimated $7.7 billion U.S. market for online video ads.  Twitter autoplay will also work with Vines and continue working with animated GIFs. Like Facebook, Twitter’s autoplay will be activated without audio when a video comes into view on the screen. The sound will be activated and the video will display in an expanded view if a user clicks or taps on a video. In a wrinkle different from Facebook, if a user turns his or her device to a horizontal orientation, the audio will switch on and the video will expand to the full screen.

To guard against unexpected data changes, users will have the option to revert to click-to-play video or have autoplay only active when connected to wifi. And Twitter also said it will continue the click-to-play system for users with low bandwidth devices or in locations high data rates.
