A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic]

A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic] | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

Ask anyone to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody could name the top two: Facebook and Twitter.

But those are far from the only online applications making inroads. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day.

 

Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. But there are other options- Tumblr, YouTube and Google+, to name three.

Of course, if naming the latest social media tools seems tough, learning how to use them all is harder still. In an attempt to shorten the learning curve, Flowtown and Column Five published this Social Media Cheat Sheet for your reference...

It's official, marketing through your Facebook page is pretty much useless - The Hub

It's official, marketing through your Facebook page is pretty much useless - The Hub | The Perfect Storm Team | Scoop.it

Digest...

 

Social media analytics platform Simply Measured compared engagement rates for Interbrand's Top 10 Facebook Pages year-over-year and the results were pretty grim. Despite their skilled social media teams, creative visuals and content producing power, the top 10 brands uniformly saw their Facebook page engagement rates decrease over last year (with the exception of Harley Davidson.)

 

And it's not that the brands haven't been trying. If anything, they've all increased their number of followers. But despite posting more, and arguably better content, their posts continue to reach a declining number of people.
