Social Media for CEOs | N2Growth Blog

Social Media for CEOs | N2Growth Blog | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Nary a week passes where I don’t hear from a CEO who’s grappling with this social media conundrum: should I, or shouldn’t I? The inquiry usually goes something like this: “I’m interested in learning more about social media, but my board thinks it’s a bad idea, I don’t have any additional bandwidth, and I’m not even sure where to start…is social media really effective for CEOs?”  The discussion about whether or not CEOs should become more digitally accessible  is certainly not a new one, but in my humble opinion, it’s a tired one that should have ended long, long ago. In today’s post I’ll share my thoughts on why it’s time to put a fork in the social media debate.

Social Learning – Productivity drain or HR game changer?

Social Learning – Productivity drain or HR game changer? | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

The reality is, 1.5 billion of us use social networking channels on a daily basis, often making the likes of Twitter and YouTube our first port of call for consuming information. It’s therefore no surprise that social technologies have crept into the corporate environment as informal learning mediums over the last few years in particular.

 

That said, whilst anecdotal evidence among our network suggests employee demand is high for this approach to learning, the majority of HR departments continue to shy away from formally integrating such technologies into their wider L&D strategies.

10 Fatal Pinterest Mistakes You Are Probably Making | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

So let me guess, you’ve been on Pinterest for several months now and you’re scratching your head thinking “Why am I not getting more followers? Why aren’t my pins getting repinned?” 

 

Many Pinterest users have unrealistic expectations about how to create a successful Pinterest account. Somehow they think that if you just push a bunch of pretty images out onto Pinterest you’re all set!

 

Getting high engagement on Pinterest is no different than getting high engagement on any other social network. You are building relationships online and that takes time… just like it does in real life.

 

Success on Pinterest isn’t just one thing; there are multiple factors that contribute to operating a successful account. I have said this before; there is a lot of science to Pinterest success.

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC] | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Sono sicuro si sa che il contenuto visivo sui social media può massicciamente migliorare l'impegno. Ma quanto è importante?

Che ne dite di questo: il cervello umano elabora le immagini 60.000 volte più veloce di testo. Di conseguenza, il 90 per cento di tutte le informazioni che arriva al cervello è visivo.

Sul web, si stima che il 55 per cento di tutto il traffico sarà il video entro il 2016, e il traffico video mobile aumenterà del 1800 per cento. YouTube, Instagram e Vine sono attualmente le migliori piattaforme per massimizzare il video fidanzamento, quindi sono li che utilizzano al loro pieno potenziale nelle tue campagne di marketing?
