The 10 Best Social Media Predictions for 2014

The 10 Best Social Media Predictions for 2014 | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
In my years in marketing and media relations, I’ve learned there is one constant: change. If you can’t embrace it, you will wither on the vine.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

This is not one of the boring "social media will become more important than ever" type of post: promised! The question is no longer there but how social media will evolve in the next few months. 


Interestingly a lot of these points are on the format of content that will be successful next year: short-form, visual and interest-based are the keywords you want to remember.

Make your social media frequency the most valuable. Find out how often you should be posting to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and more.
Ally Greer's insight:

The real answer to this question is one that no one really likes to hear - is that it’s important to experiment and measure the impact of social media posting for your specific brand and analyze what makes your audience react in the most favorable way. In fact, this is even the official answer from Facebook. However, there are a few studies that can help you structure these tests and skip some of the guessing part.

Just how many times does content get shared? Where do people prefer to share it? And are some publishers more effective than others at generating highly shared content?

Of course the caveat is that while social networking is dominated by a handful of social network, content publishing isn't and is very long tail. It's nevertheless interesting to understand benchmarks,content types and keywords which are specific to each social network. It's also fascinating to me to see that a lot of the se successful publishers are first and foremost great curators.

Social Media Engagement is Not a Strategy

Social meida marketers are keen to drive engagement but it may not necessarily be a viable strategy. In fact, it comes at a cost.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Mark Schaefer has a great point: we often confuse the means with the end.


In a blog post that I wrote a couple weeks ago, I explained why I thought social media publishing was dead - as we know it. One of these points was that the impact of publishing on social media for our goals is the combination of volume, quality and engagement. As Mark explains, engagement is only one variable in that equation.


So how can you convert your social media activity to make it count towards your goals? 


One of the important basic first step you can take is to make sure you publish through a content hub that you can make your own and from where you can convert visitors: to subscribe to your content, to reshare your previously published content or to sign up for whatever pre-sales activity makes sense in your business.

Sharing is not enough: why you need a hub for your online presence.

Sharing is not enough: why you need a hub for your online presence. | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
Social media needs to be part of an overall sales and marketing strategy that includes your website, not something that is isolated from everything else you do to promote your business. It isn’t a one hit wonder that will magically drive people to your business.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Sue Cockburn makes a great point on SocialMediaToday; and one that I've often seen underestimated (as a matter of fact, I was highlighting it myself in a talk last week).


As she pointed out, one of the reasons for this is certainly the hype on social media (and its apparent simplicity).


With the Scoop.it team, we've been trying to identify the other reasons explaining that by observing many companies - small or large - implementing their content strategy:


- small businesses are often finding it difficult to integrate their social media publishing efforts with their own website in a simple way (hence our own efforts to integrate with Wordpress, offer embeds and make website integration easy);


- larger companies can also face that (even when they have IT departments, they're not always reactive and available for marketing-driven projects) but there's another factor: very often, social media publishing was initially defined as a standalone role (and even if it's a cliché, sometimes to the millenial in the team who "got it"). This meant it grew in a silo alongside other marketing activities such as SEO, content marketing or building up the WebSite to modern standards.


Any other factors that explain this that you came across?

Facebook Puts Everyone On Notice About The Death Of Organic Reach

Facebook Puts Everyone On Notice About The Death Of Organic Reach | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
Facebook's Brian Boland has taken to a Facebook blog to talk about the decline of a post's organic reach in the social network. In his role as ‎VP Ads Product Marketing, he walked through the implications as organic reach becomes a less effective engagement tool.

Via Baochi
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Social Media Publishing as we know it is dying.


Driven by revenue objectives, Facebook is pushing the pay-for-play model and is shutting down progressively all hopes of generating organic traffic without ads. 


This means it's extremely important to consider social media publishing not as an isolated act but as part of a broader content strategy. The key point here is to integrate it with content hubs (which can be a blog, a resource center or a Scoop.it page.) where:


- people can easily find all your content,


- they can share it and amplify it to your own channels,


- it can also be easily discovered form search engines by your target audience.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

While the points of this article won'y give you a magical mathematical formula, it's a good framework to start implementing KPI's on your social media publishing and put some objectives on them.


Not that a number of these points are actually only valid in the context of using social media as part of a broader content strategy. Collecting emails for instance (point #2) is not easy to do with basic social media publishing: as more and more the case, you'll need to combine social media publishing with a content hub such as a blog or a Scoop.it topic page to bundle a call to action such as an email newsletter signup with the content you've shared.


Similarly, measuring returning visitors from social media is a great idea but it won't work if you're just tweeting to 3rd-party site without using one of above solutions as a curation layer to offer them a chance to discover your brand.

What Needs to Change About the Current State of Blogging

What Needs to Change About the Current State of Blogging | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
Is this current writing model of leaning on gif-listicles, quizzes, and Instagram photos as the bulk of blogging content the most sustainable in the long-term?
Ally Greer's insight:

Are you blogging just to have things to publish on social media, or because you have important things to share with your readers?


If it's the former, you might want to rethink your strategy. Blogging just for the sake of blogging can get ugly pretty quickly - making viral headlines and "keywordifying" your content just to get some SEO and social media visibility isn't the way to form real relationships and get business. 


Instead of blogging just to blog, why not blog when you have meaningful, important ideas that matter to share, and supplement the rest with curated content?

How Ads Get Placed In Your Facebook News Feed

How Ads Get Placed In Your Facebook News Feed | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
A peek under the hood of one of Facebook's most important algorithms.
Ally Greer's insight:

Interesting interview with Fidji Simo and Hong Ge, product managers on the Facebook ads team focused on how Facebook users end up with certain ads in their newsfeeds.


Combining the potential value for the advertiser, the viewer, and the FB ad platform, a specific algorithm exists to determine which ads to serve to whom and when. 


A few interesting facts about the FB Ad/News Feed algorithm:


-News Feed posts containing words inferring important life events, like 'congratulations,' in the post or in the comments are favorited and pushed to the top.


- Ads with quality content, like an engaging video, are more highly favored because they're more likely to bring a positive experience to the user viewing the ad.


-62% of Facebook's advertising revenue in Q2 of this year came from advertisements on mobile devices.


-Each Facebook user has the possibility of seeing an average of ten ads per day out of a possible 5,000-7,000 ads targeted at demographics specific to that user.

How You Can Prepare for Twitter's Potential Upcoming Changes

How You Can Prepare for Twitter's Potential Upcoming Changes | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
Twitter strategy might be shifting and the implications for our personal and business experience could be profound.
Ally Greer's insight:

If you're in social media marketing, you probably cringe at the mention of the word EdgeRank. I know I do, because it makes me think of how frustrating it is that even the best of my brand's Facebook content might not be seen by more than 200 or 300 of our 57,000 fans unless I spend money to promote it.


Brace yourselves, social marketers, because algorithms just like Facebook's EdgeRank might be coming to Twitter. In this post by our friend Mark Schaeffer, you can learn about some of the reasons why Twitter is thinking about implementing this, including the pressure from investors now that Twitter has gone public.


Mark brings up some great points for both sides like the fact that, with so many active users, "an unfiltered news stream can seem overwhelming," but one of the best things about Twitter is that it's completely unfiltered because  it allows for news to break in real time; something we see happening more and more each day.


According to Mark - and most marketers including myself happen to agree - Twitter will ultimately end up implementing an algorithm that determines what updates you see depending on elements like trending topics and interaction history, which will make organic reach plummet which would effectively eliminate the main differentiator of Twitter from Facebook.


What can do you, then, to prepare for this change?  


The truth: I'm not sure. No one is, and that's why we're all talking about it. That aside, though, I can come up with a few ideas that I plan on testing out while Twitter is still the way it is.


- Focus a lot of effort on building community on Twitter while you still have the ability to reach everyone equally. I think previously established relationships will pay off when the algorithm is put into place and it's likely that Twitter will favor updates of accounts with which the user interacts on a regular basis.


- Don't lose momentum. Now more than ever, every tweet counts. Another guess of mine is that brand accounts (and potentially personal ones as well) who post on a more consistent basis will also be favored because they are more likely to garner more engagement. Figure out ways to find a constant flow of content to feed your Twitter account with and get tweeting!


- Play with ads in order to start getting used to the platform. Over the years, the cost to get your content seen on Facebook has skyrocketed, and it's currently extremely low on Twitter. I've been experimenting with Twitter Ads and finding that the CPC is almost half of what I spend on Facebook. Perhaps if you get in the game while you're ahead, you won't end up having to dig all the way down to the bottom of those pockets in a few months.


Remember, these are just guesses. That said, they all share a common theme that I truly believe will be helpful as Twitter starts changing: stay ahead of the curve!


What do you think? Will Twitter add a timeline algorithm? Will it significantly change the way we do social media marketing?

How Can Social Media be Used as a Lead Generation Channel? | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it
Social Media is a very powerful tool that is often underestimated for its potential, mostly because of lack of insight.
Yes, it's increasingly gaining importance in terms of a medium to impart personality to a brand and facts state that over 80% of businesses are using social media worldwide; but is it acknowledged as one of the best tools to drive sales, the most important aspect of a business? Not really.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

How do you measure the success of your marketing in general and social media in particular? For many businesses, generating leads is probably the best way to justify more investment on social media. This post recaps the different things you can try to achieve this goal.


One thing to note that is worth highlighting is that it all starts by articulating your social channels and your content hub (your blog, your topics, etc...). As I like to say, if you're only tweeting links you're missing out.

Content Hubs like Scoop.it can make big difference

for these inevitable problems of Social Media Publishing.

Just sharing will not be enough, you need to establish communities around

your content hub.

Just tweeting is not enough. Curating content on content hubs will be archived and be available in future to receive targeted traffic. Also it is exposed to long lasting sharing possibilities.

Content Curation would engage your audience better then just say  a FB page..

This way you not only share the content but also create an impact for the relevant topic or niche.

This could take longer time, but also work for longer time.

What Facebook's new policies mean for social media publishing | Social Media Publishing and Curation | Scoop.it

A new update from Facebook’s elders has quelled previously whispered rumors that they would kill off all sharing from third party apps. In reality, it turns out they will actually be giving less weight to stories that are “implicitly shared.” Implicit sharing occurs when someone clicks “Share” on a story through a third-party app, without creating a unique message for the post.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Interesting analysis by Mark Lerner on Business 2 Community on how implicit sharing is being demoted in Facebook news feed.


What can you do about it?


Use explicit sharing or - in short - add insights to your posts by enriching them with your own comment, opinion.

Content is king: Social only tools will become redundant

The distinction between SMMS (Social Media Management Software) and content marketing tools is blurring and will soon vanish as marketers and vendors demand content capabilities in a growing number of platforms.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

This is the full report that I already mentioned here.


One of the many interesting points that Rebecca Lieb and Jessica Groopman make is that social media publishing is being absorbed by the content marketing ecosystem: "The distinction between SMMS (Social Media Management Software) and content marketing tools is blurring and will soon vanish as marketers and vendors demand content capabilities in a growing number of platforms. Close to 85% of content marketing tools publish on social platforms, a number not statistically different than their ability to publish on websites. This will render social media only tools redundant."


I still meet community managers or social media professionals who feel they have it covered because they "tweet links". But this is not having a full-blown content strategy. To deliver on all its benefits, social media needs the right content so you need an efficient solution and tool to find that content on top of the content you create. In addition and as importantly, it needs a content hub where to share from and direct your social media audience to: directing your audience without any added perspectives nor SEO benefits to third-party sites simply won't be enough.
