Cendrine Marrouat - SocialMediaSlant.com's insight:

It's a good discussion to have, IMHO.

As a professional helping small businesses and entrepreneurs figure out social media, buying likes and followers is a  practice I strongly discourage.

 

Unfortunately, too many brands still think that the offline and online worlds are separate entities. What they consider unethical in one, they see as acceptable in the other.

 

I am sharing a small case study in this article, which I hope will open some eyes.

To be clear, what this feature means is that the hashtags will be clickable and grouped together on a page.  Each hashtag will have its own unique Facebook URL with a status update box at the top.  This is great news, because it means you can drive traffic to that URL from your site, Blog or other social platforms to engage users and create even more conversation.

Karen Dietz's comment, May 24, 2013 5:15 PM
HI Barbara and thanks for your input! When Cowbird originally came out, I too thought it would not work for business folks so have ignored it. I thought the focus on personal stories not related to business wouldn't work. I really didn't think Cowbird would be attractive to businesses because of the type of stories people were sharing plus the stories stayed on Cowbird's site. But because they've added new functionality where you can now embed your stories on your website, blog, etc. I think businesses could use it today. The best business stories are personal. I've poked around Cowbird and it seems a simple enough tool to use so I think biz folks could definitely leverage it now to their advantage. I am sure businesses will come up with creative ideas for how using this tool if they want.
Jeff Domansky's comment, May 24, 2013 6:32 PM
Hi all, I agree Cowbird is not for most businesses yet. But imagine if your business wanted to connect with customers and encourage them to share their personal stories in a contest, to illustrate a concept or support a charity? I'm with Karen. It's not the tools, it's the creativity that counts.
