Does Thought Leadership Need Social Media?

Does Thought Leadership Need Social Media? | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

The natural reaction of most business people and certainly anyone in marketing, communications or social media these days is to label those companies and individuals not using social media as dinosaurs.

But are they?

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Research in a report by KPMG in 2011 “Going Social: How businesses are making the most of social media” found that regardless of industry group or ownership structure, business adoption rates for social media now average around the 70% mark around the world.  Perhaps even more tellingly, the report found that a high proportion of consumers now use social media to inform their purchasing decisions.

(From the article): How we use our brains is not only crucial to our survival, it also determines whether we succeed or fail. 

Our world is changing at a rapid rate and this makes it necessary to be able to think in a nonlinear fashion as well as a linear fashion.

We need use our right brains to get the “big picture,” generate creative ideas and novel approaches to think strategically. 

We have to improve our brain power.

(From the article): We believe that capitalizing on the transformational power of social media while mitigating its risks calls for a new type of leader. The dynamics of social media amplify the need for qualities that have long been a staple of effective leadership, such as strategic creativity, authentic communication, and the ability to deal with a corporation’s social and political dynamics and to design an agile and responsive organization.

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

 

 

Susan Gunelius does a great job of suggesting how to put to good use the content curation potential on your own blog site.

 

Here her first two recommendations:


1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated:
It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.


2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts:
You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.

 

 

 

Good advice. Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

Why You Should Be On Google Plus (Even Though No One Else Is)

Why You Should Be On Google Plus (Even Though No One Else Is) | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it
Do you ever get the impression no one is on Google Plus? That it’s utterly devoid of the vast audience that makes Facebook so powerful?
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): To get started and build a solid reputation on Google Plus, says Sherman, the first step is creating differentiated content – preferably that plays to the service’s strengths by using Communities or Hangouts. “What you don’t want to do is post the same thing everywhere,” she says. “That’s really boring and spammy. I know it takes effort, but shift the timing, shift the slant, and do something different; don’t just repost Facebook and Twitter items onto Google Plus because a significant number of followers will be the same, and it makes you look like someone who’s not a thought leader and not interesting. Why would they bother commenting?”

Study: Facebook Is Your Frenemy

Study: Facebook Is Your Frenemy | Surviving Social Chaos | Scoop.it

Facebook is terrible. But Facebook is, at the same time, wonderful. We love it, we hate it. We love to hate it, hate to love it, etc. It is our best friend. It is our worst enemy. 


Via Manlio Mannozzi, donhornsby
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): So Facebook taketh away, but Facebook giveth, too. It may frustrate us -- by encouraging us to have too many "friends" through its service, by inspiring envy of said friends, by creating yet another thing to fill and take our time. But it also brings us, it seems, some measure of joy. Or at least happiness. Or at least distraction. Or at least some kind of social or psychic benefit. All the stuff that, despite Facebook's drawbacks, keeps us coming back, day after day, for more.
