A LinkedIn experiment for the next 30 days | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

That sounds really great. I'll start this 30 day experiment right now. What I like in this experiment, it's the social approach and in the same time, the educational impact on the user... wow, cool! [note Martin Gysler]

 

Des Walsh has setup an experiment on Linkedin called the 30 day linking blitz, a collaborative project, in which each participant commits to take action on his/her LinkedIn presence and activity, over a 30 day period for 20 minutes a day. The purpose is to make more effective use of our LinkedIn memberships and drive positive networking both personally and professionally with the following aims:

 

- Amplify our social presence
- Enhance our network reach and level of influence
- Improve our network engagement
- Be more readily findable, for the products and/or services we offer

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Nowhere do the mistakes, poor practices and questionable judgement of individuals, organizations and brands get exposed with such glee as they do in the sphere of the social web. It’s no wonder some CEOs or senior decision-makers entrusted with the stewardship of brands break out in a cold sweat at the simple mention of the words “social media.”

 

Mark Schaefer wrote a great post about Negativity Bias as it relates to the social web and how this phenomenon has created a playing field rife with PR land mines for anyone active in the space. Schaefer sparks dialogue at the end of his post by posing the following question:

 

“In a world where Negativeity Bias is gasoline on a viral fire, and one misstep can overwhelm years of positive work cultivating raving fans, why would anybody take a risk on the social web?”

How to Network Successfully

How to Network Successfully | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

Networking is a huge component of being a successful entrepreneur. When you’re working alone or you’re a small business owner, you don’t get to enjoy working with a lot of colleagues. You have to put yourself out there in order to find more people to work with and work for. You may have previously turned down networking events such as conferences, happy hours, and trade shows, but you’re missing out on valuable contacts. Maybe you’re afraid you’ll fail, but networking is a lot easier than you may think. Here are a few tips on networking successfully:

 

Don’t Try to Go to Everything

One of the best things to keep in mind when you’re networking is not to stretch yourself too thin. There’s literally an event going on everyday, and you simply don’t need to go to them all...

there is space for unique social media initiatives; there is a world beyond Twitter and Facebook – the current social media favorites.

Enhance your Facebook Pages with these timeline ready apps. A total of 25 facebook apps to choose from, including BONUS app suggestions to improve fans engagement.

 

For page managers who know how to work with Facebook apps, the new Timeline layout for Pages is a great opportunity to highlight their application tab for maximum visibility and increase click through rates. But for those who aren’t, finding those timeline ready apps can be a massive headache.


Before adding any facebook applications to your Timeline (layout) page, there are a few things you should know:

 

NOT all facebook applications are suitable for your Page NOT all facebook applications are free Understand the use of each app before installing Understand each approved facebook app WILL HAVE access to a certain amount of your personal data on Facebook Facebook app is an ADDED advantage to achieve a particular purpose you have for your brand (get leads, customer contact info) but certainly NOT a compulsory It’s OK to NOT install any third party apps on your page if you don’t feel like it

An "encounter" between Jay Baer and Guy Kawasaki ... really interesting and it gives to reflect on the social media world. [note mg]

 

Is Social media strategy required for all business? Or can you just get started? Jay Baer examines social media strategy and provides a social media ROI lesson.

 

I don’t have a problem with Guy Kawasaki. I enjoy his books. His track record in business is substantial. We have friends in common. But on the subject of social media strategy, we disagree in every possible way.


Last month, Guy was interviewed (that happens a lot) in Inc. Magazine about social media, as was asked whether entrepreneurs should hire a consultant and develop a social media strategy. (edit: for clarity, this is the exact question he was asked: “Let’s say an entrepreneur is new to the whole social media thing. There’s a tendency to hire a consultant and formulate a plan. Is that the right approach?”) To which he replied:...

7 Ways To Improve Your Social Media Skills And Influence - Forbes

7 Ways To Improve Your Social Media Skills And Influence - Forbes | Social Media (network, technology, blog, community, virtual reality, etc...) | Scoop.it

By this time next year we'll all be looking back at 2012 at the explosion of social media inside the workplace as one of the most amazing disruptors we've seen in business. But a lot of people are not well prepared for their new roles in social.... Are you?

 

Sean is a young guy in his first agency, hired because he understands social, right? Carrie is a little older and has worked in marketing for nearly a decade. Her boss has asked her to take on the department’s social strategy – because she’s senior yet still young enough to get it. Eric is a marketing director and worries that his career might slip away if he doesn’t start building his social profile outside and inside the enterprise.

 

How do these people find help?

 

Social media skills are becoming extremely important to employees, yet I think there is a very significant skills gap here....

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.
