(From the article): Next, you will want to ask yourself, “What do I want and expect to get out of my Social Media efforts?” This will guide you in determining which social media networks you should join. If you merely want to stay in-touch with friends and family, then Facebook is essential. If you want to keep up with the latest news and trends then Twitter, Reddit, and StumbleUpon deserve your attention. If you want to network with like-minded individuals, then selecting a niche site based on your interests and activities is the way to go, such as the above cooking example.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 11, 8:46 AM
(From the article): The follow up is where most businesses fall short, and where your business can shine bright! Wait a week or a few, depending on the situation, and then reach back out to them and make sure they are pleased. If it’s a product replacement, make sure the new product works as it should. If it’s a service replacement, makes sure they’re pleased with it. When we take the extra step to follow up it can seal the deal to changing them into a loving and loyal customer because it’s personal and unexpected. And if you’re doing business right – you always want to do the unexpected. Finally, sometimes all the respectful talk in the world won’t absolve situations, and we’ve got to learn to let that go. I’ve dealt with ranters who simply wanted to push and push, and I had to say, “Thank you for your feedback, we will do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again.” Or, “I appreciate your honesty and will make sure to handle things differently the next time.” We always win when we acknowledge, apologize, and offer a solution that works for them.

(From the article): Extend the Life of Content

Social media is a perfect way to extent the life of evergreen content, or give you ideas to refresh old pieces. Use networks like Twitter to link back to older content pieces that provide info that is still relevant (remember to switch up the messaging!). You can also fill content gaps with older content. Take a look at the social chatter happening in your audience – you may have an old piece that may just need a few statistics updates and new graphics to share.

Any way we can bring in technology into the classroom to improve learning can only be a good thing. Take for instance Twitter and YouTube. Valueable lessons and strategies can be found using these sites which can only be beneficial for our students, if used wisely I must add. 

Jacinta Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 29, 10:09 PM

I especially like the idea of tweeting as a character from history! Not only is it enjoyable, but it encourages the students to quite literally put themselves in their shoes and evaluate their decisions, trials and tribulations on a much more personal level.

Why Social Media Does Wonders for Employee Engagement

Why Social Media Does Wonders for Employee Engagement | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

A 2009 study found that 54% of companies banned Facebook and Twitter at work, according to Wired. It could be safe to say that percentage has likely plummeted substantially in the ensuing seven years, but there are almost certainly still organizations that don’t allow their employees to use social networks.

Their reasoning probably sounds something like this: “Social media is a waste of time.”

While there may be some truth to that statement, social media doesn’t always have to be a waste of time. In fact, a lot of good can result for businesses that maintain active social profiles and allow their employees to do the same.

On the fence about whether to allow your employees to use social networks at work? Here are five reasons why social media should never be banned at the office:

A recent CMO Survey indicates that marketers plan to double their spending on social media in the next five years. Yet IBM’s C-Suite Study reports that nearly half of CMOs believe they are not prepared to manage the challenges of social media. This disparity highlights an important, and potentially costly, problem: Marketers continue to increase social media spending, yet many are still uncertain about management, strategies, and integration.

You only have to look around to see how widespread social media has become. From sharing updates on the train to posting pictures while on holiday - engaging with others has taken on a whole new meaning. Advertisement It happens in real-time, on the move and in practically any location.

But how does social media translate to the workplace? And how should HR managers approach this?

New research from Acas shows that while many employers are keen to exploit social media tools to develop their external image or promote their products and services, far fewer are using it to engage with their staff.
