The State of Influencers Theory #Infographic

The State of Influencers Theory #Infographic | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

By Leslie Bradshaw

 

From Moses’ clay tablets, to the Old Spice Guy, to Fred Wilson’s blog, influencers have been influencin’ since the dawn of time.

...

 

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t just wake up one day and decide to create an Internet meme. Something doesn’t go viral until it has been thoroughly embraced and shared by the masses. And how does it get to that point? People who have unique insight and respect from their peers influence other people. And, therefore, play an important role in helping the content, meme, or idea along. The word that we use to describe these kinds of people is “influencer” (I also have friends and strategists who prefer “tastemaker” — but only the hip ones. Influencer is pretty industry standard).

 

Malcolm Gladwell wrote in The Tipping Point that, “A very small number of people are connected to everyone else in a few steps — the rest of us are linked to the world through those special few.” One of my favorite thinkers in the space and another DC powerhouse Geoff Livingston discusses Gladwell’s theory and several others in his book Welcome to the Fifth Estate — including an entire section on the “History of Influencer Theory” on the social web.

 

As with the Big Bang and the extinction of dinosaurs, there’s not just one theory about influencers, there are several. Livingston breaks it down like this:

 

To visualize how these theories all come together in the social web, Livingston partnered with JESS3 to create The State of Influencer Theory Infographic.

Here’s the result of our first brainstorming session:

Facebook IPO is expected to increase due great demand for a piece of the social networking giant. Here's an interesting summary of Facebook IPO predictions.

 

On Wednesday, 1st February 2012, Facebook  filed for its Initial Public Offering with the intention to raise around $5 billion.

This is expected to increase due great demand for a piece of the social networking giant.

This IPO is considered the largest out of Silicon Valley, topping Google’s $2 billion IPO in 2004.

 

Here’s an Infographic [prior to the IPO] I find interesting:

Il Social Media Manager una Figura Professionale Ancora da Scoprire ma Già Tanto Richiesta

Il Social Media Manager una Figura Professionale Ancora da Scoprire ma Già Tanto Richiesta | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Ultimamente tutte le aziende di qualsiasi dimensione hanno capito che se vogliono sopravvivere devono curare la loro presenza sui Social Media.

 

Se milioni di persone ogni giorno trascorrono tanto tempo sui Social Network è ovviamente importante per qualsiasi azienda essere presente sul web e sfruttare al meglio le opportunità di marketing  che questo nuovo social media offre.

 

Il problema è che molte aziende non hanno idea di come utilizzare i social media per il marketing e allo stesso tempo le tradizionali strategie di marketing offline sembrano diventare sempre meno efficace.

Ecco perché il ruolo del Social Media Manager è sempre più richiesto.

 

Il mercato presenta infatti un enorme domanda, di professionisti capaci di curare i profili sociali delle aziende stesse sui tutti i maggiori Social Network ( http://goo.gl/sRWpf )

 

Let 's Get Social ( http://goo.gl/7BnRj ) è un programma di formazione completo che punta a creare dei Social Media Manager di successo. (in inglese)

 

All'interno di questo programma ci sono sei moduli video di base dove l'esperto di social media, "Kate" spiega il modo per riuscire a costruire un business redditizio in 18 mesi di lavoro part-time per lo più dal telefono cellulare.

Inoltre ci sono anche dei bonus forniti gratuitamente con questo prodotto.

The Top 20 Twitter Clients being Used in 2012 @NealSchaffer

Top 20 Twitter client being used in 2012, including introductions to HootSuite, TweetDeck, SocialOomph, MarketMeSuite, and SocialSprout. Find new app for tweeting!

 

I recently changed my main Twitter client (more information on that below) and decided to create a new LinkedIn Poll for Groups in my Social Media Strategies for Business LinkedIn Group to find out what others use. I asked my 2,500 group members: What Twitter client do you use for business? Statistically speaking, the results can not represent the entire user base for those who tweet, and I only gave the poll readers a choice between 5 popular clients: Twitter.com, HootSuite, TweetDeck, CoTweet, and SproutSocial. The leading client in the poll as I write this blog? SproutSocial.

 

When you analyze these top clients and realize how many are for mobile, iOS, automation or are or will be discontinued, it is safe to say that the top Twitter clients in 2012 for any business to consider come down to:

HootSuite Twitter.com TweetDeck SocialOomph Echofon MarketMeSuite SproutSocial

For any business that tweets, however, they are undoubtedly using Facebook and are looking for a cross platform social media dashboard. Those 5 clients in bold above are what you should be investigating if you are looking for a new client to use in 2012.

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload

How Brands Can Manage Facebook Comment Overload | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it
Large-scale waves of Facebook comments can come at any time, for a variety of reasons. Try these steps for effective comment management.

 

Human beings are social by nature, and not surprisingly, we choose to spend much of our talkative time on Facebook.

 

Comscore released data in December 2011 that showed Facebook is virtually synonymous with social media. Worldwide, people spend three out of every four minutes of their total social networking time on Facebook.

 

Check out the recent comment counts on nearly any major Facebook brand Page — the numbers get big very quickly. Disney’s image of Happy, the dwarf from Snow White earned over 1,600 comments at the time of publication. Coca-Cola asked fans whether they have ice-cold Cokes in their fridges – 2,170+ comments.

Study Shows 1/3 People Think Social Media Should Be Banned At Work - #Infographic - @NiallHarbison

Study Shows 1/3 People Think Social Media Should Be Banned At Work - #Infographic - @NiallHarbison | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it
As social media continues to grow one question keeps popping up and that is should employees be allowed to use it in the work place.

 

A new set of stats show that two out of every three people agree that social media should be banned in the workplace.

 

The survey was carried out by a recruitment site and it gives a great insight into how people use social networks while at work.

What the study really shows is that social networks are mostly blocked in the workplace with the vast majority of people having no access to them.

 

The mind set from employers seems to be that allowing any access will decrease productivity.

 

There are some interesting stats here though and I have to say I’m surprised at just how much clamping down happens out there from employers.
