Facebook Rolls Out Reviews For Places - Business 2 Community

Facebook Rolls Out Reviews For Places - Business 2 Community | Social media marketing, analysis, strategy | Scoop.it

While we were all looking the other way, Facebook quietly introduced reviews to Facebook Pages for Places with very little fanfare. If you haven’t seen them yet, you’ll probably see them soon. It takes a while for a new feature to be rolled out to almost 1.5 billion users. We saw the new review buttons on many Facebook Pages for Places recently and thought we’d give you a peek under the hood.

In the example below, we check out the Facebook Page of our favorite hotel in Las Vegas, The Cosmopolitan.

Flipboard Debuts Catalogs, Shoppable Magazines Built By Brand Advertisers, Celeb Curators And Users

Flipboard Debuts Catalogs, Shoppable Magazines Built By Brand Advertisers, Celeb Curators And Users | Social media marketing, analysis, strategy | Scoop.it

Excerpt from article on TechCrunch:
"Flipboard is inching into Pinterest’s territory today with the launch of a new “shopping” category which allows e-commerce brands turn their online stores into flippable, shoppable catalogs, complete with pricing info and big, red “buy” buttons for the items they sell. Meanwhile, everyday users are also now able to build catalogs of their own, using the updated “flip.it” button for web browsers. The company has several new launch partners for its new catalogs, including eBay, Banana Republic, Fab, Birchbox, and ModCloth, as well existing partners like Etsy and Levi’s.

These brands worked with Flipboard’s team who have turned their websites into custom catalogs, where the formatting has been modified to be cleaner and more minimalistic – basically, more like it would appear if it were a print catalog as opposed to a cluttered e-commerce website.

In addition, these catalogs can contain a mixture of products and editorial, or brands can choose to organize their product lines into separate, smaller magazines.

The new top-level “Shopping” category in Flipboard will include magazines from celebratory curators like  fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, singer Sara Evans, chef Daniel Boulud and actress Alyssa Milano, who have built magazines containing their favorite products.

To cater to the needs of the former, the company also updated its Flipboard bookmarklet today to allow users to capture product category and price when clipping items from the web. The tool will scrape the text from the web page, or when it’s not able to do so, users can select the category manually or type in the price themselves..."

New Slides and Data: The State of Social Business Evolution 2013

New Slides and Data: The State of Social Business Evolution 2013 | Social media marketing, analysis, strategy | Scoop.it

...A social business is more than an organization that invests in a positive global footprint to overcome the world's biggest problems, such as inequality and poverty. The term has developed to now also represent companies that are more open, transparent, and participatory in conversations and activity that defines markets. But the challenge is that social media strategists may actually be hampering its potential by not helping executives see the bigger picture beyond the technology.

 

Last month, Charlene Li and I published our latest Altimeter Group report, "The State of Social Business 2013." In our research, we were surprised that businesses were still unsure of the role social media played enterprise-wide, beyond marketing and communications. Many, we found, were limited in scope and not universal in engagement with customers, employees, suppliers, partners, community, et al...

Why Social Media Is David's Slingshot & How Threats Destroy Brands

Does Arrogance Still Scale? Not so much...
I live in a loft in a renovated tobacco building. I thought it was appropriate to put the Story of Cancer Foundation in a renovated tobacco building. The Duke Alumni Office is our neighbor occupying the first floor and several buildings including our parking garage.

Friday night after six o'clock the Duke Alumni Office threatened to tow my car. I pay for parking and an electronic gate requiring a special card to open controls the deck. This post is about how can an office ostensibly in the BE NICE business be so unaware of the social, community and brand implications of such a threatening action.

Imagine one of your neighbors threatened to tow your car out of your gorge. You would call the police. I hope it doesn't go that far, but Duke is asking like an arrogant GOLIATH and should learn that social media is a slingshot capable of making any Goliath have a bad day.

The point for EVERY business is we are all connected now. Treat me, them and us like the family members we are and we will get along great. Mean and arrogant wouldn't be my first choice for branding building in a social, mobile age.

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2014 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!

One of Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is to Begin with the End in Mind.

This infographic does just that – recognizing that you need to establish your goals first when looking to your social media marketing strategy.

It doesn’t simply speak about conversions – it speaks to the other business uses of social media: Brand Marketing, Thought Leaderhsip, Service and Sales Prospecting. Much of the strength of social media doesn’t come from the immediate push… it’s the echos and volume that are established over time.
