Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up

Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up | Social media and education | Scoop.it

This a timely and important piece from Mark Schaefer of {grow} in which he touches upon several issues which confront all of us who are trying to keep our heads above water in the ever-evolving world of Social Media.


To quote: "Not only do the platforms shift every day, the rules of engagement change constantly, too. Can anybody keep up with the real (and rumored) changes just to Facebook's EdgeRank formula? What we considered best practices six months ago are passé today. Social media is overwhelming, especially when there is pressure to master every new platform that comes along  How do you keep up?."


Remember:


** Platforms may change but marketing fundamentals remain the same


** Absolutely nobody can navigate this changing world alone as there are too many facets to it, so form a mutually beneficial support group.


** There's too much informationfor any one person to keep on top of all of it, so pick a main focus and try really hard to keep mainly to that.


** Know your audience and go where you will find them. This might mean giving up on one of the major platforms.  Swallow hard and do it!


** The more successful you become and the more your reach grows, the less time you will have to engage one-on-one with people. Don't let yourself feel guilty about this as it is inevitable.


** Go to a trusted source for information but be warned: Such a place may not (yet) exist.

Information Overload? Don't Panic!

Information Overload? Don't Panic! | Social media and education | Scoop.it

I selected this post today from my fellow curator's collection gdecugis, (love what he had to say below).  I personally think it's one of the best pieces I've seen so far on this subject.

 

We're all dealing with this issue and sometimes when you see it articulated as Brian Solis has done not only is it comforting but widens your perspective which is the doorway to finding solutions.

 

Excerpt:

 

At a time where some are thinking we urgently need an information diet, Brian Solis puts things in perspective: don't panic!

 

What he describes on PandoDaily as "the fallacy of Information Overload" is the fact that while we all seem lost at one point or another because our world is changed by the social media revolution, it's both inevitable and something mankind will adapt to.

 

This post is a great summary of the different ways we are affected and why we shouldn't try to move back to the previous state. But work on improving our filters.

 

Curation, anyone?

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012?

Will Pinterest Lead The Way & Transform the Web in 2012? | Social media and education | Scoop.it

I am updating this post because I now have my own experience of this exciting new way of connecting with my audience.  Brands are communicating with consumers in whole new ways. Pinterest is still by invite only, will let you know when it goes public. Be sure to stay tuned and follow the latest trends, reviews, news and developments in social curation on my new topic "PINEREST WATCH" .

 

I selected this post written by Elad Gil because not only was it interesting and timely, but the comments from his readers were equally as valuable. So many different social curation platforms emerging, Pinterest is one to watch.......

 

Excerpt:

 

Social Content Curation As The Next Big Thing

 

The most interesting wave hitting the social web in 2012 is social curation. This was kicked off in 2011 as Pinterest's growth was noticed by Silicon Valley and a number of companies quickly followed suit -

 

**Snip.It launched as a social information curation platform, Quora adopted boards for a similar purpose, and Fab.com launched a structured social commerce feed.

 

There's so much information in this post, here's the takeaway. I would love to hear your comments about this next wave......

 

Takeaway:

 

2012 Will Be The Year of Curated Sets


**2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don't want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.

 

**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information, this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.

55% of Shoppers Are Uncomfortable Giving Credit Card Info to Social Networks #Infographic

55% of Shoppers Are Uncomfortable Giving Credit Card Info to Social Networks #Infographic | Social media and education | Scoop.it

By Todd Wasserman  - http://bit.ly/yuVgSx

Social networks attempting to execute commerce on their sites might face some resistance, according to a new survey.

...

Despite the prevalence of social networks, consumers are still queasy about oversharing when it comes to credit card info.

That, at least, is the crux of an online survey executed by digital marketing firm Digitas and conducted by Harris Interactive in early January. Canvassing 2,247 would-be online shoppers, showed a slight majority weren’t ready to use Facebook et al. as a buying platform.

Predictably, older and richer consumers were even less apt to share such data.

 

Other factoids that emerged in the survey: People are spending almost as much time accessing social networks via their mobile devices as they do via their PCs. (Perhaps that’s not so astonishing, since other surveys have showed time on mobile devices eclipsing PC time.)

 

Another data point may be more surprising: Baby Boomers aged 45-54 — especially males — use their mobile device to access social networks more than 18-44 year-olds.

Jan,
This is a terrific summary of the infographic. My feeling is that transparency is not a black and white definition of - disclosing everything or disclosing nothing. There's lots of shades of gray. I like the definition of transparency from "Public Parts" that Jeff Jarvis published last year - it also includes engaging with people around what you disclose. I think there is a place for being anonymous - especially when the information you disclose might put you in physical danger. Have written a lot about transparency - about the practice in my first book and in my second book how to measure it http://www.bethkanter.org/power-light/
