(From the article): Creates a unique voice. A brand is a crucial part of a business; it creates a particular image that people bear in mind and associate certain values with. Having a strong social media presence naturally creates a unique voice through which a company can engage with their audience, who will appreciate the content more than ever. A bland presence does nothing whatsoever for a company, so have a bit of personality when managing social media. The effects on overall operations can be staggering. Timothy Olmstead, a Manassas divorce lawyer, says, "With so many law firms competing for clients, social media is the ideal platform to highlight the unique qualities of your firm. Legal professionals that want to develop a specific brand or reach a specific clientele now have more control than ever, through social media marketing."

Never get hung up on numbers. If you post a picture that is too brand-oriented, you may get fewer likes. However, it will certainly be seen. In fact, the same number of people gets to see that picture, and it will show up in the feeds of your followers.

How Are Scientists Using Social Media in the Workplace?

How Are Scientists Using Social Media in the Workplace? | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it
Social media has created networked communication channels that facilitate interactions and allow information to proliferate within professional academic communities as well as in informal social circumstances. A significant contemporary discussion in the field of science communication is how scientists are using (or might use) social media to communicate their research. This includes the role of social media in facilitating the exchange of knowledge internally within and among scientific communities, as well as externally for outreach to engage the public. This study investigates how a surveyed sample of 587 scientists from a variety of academic disciplines, but predominantly the academic life sciences, use social media to communicate internally and externally. Our results demonstrate that while social media usage has yet to be widely adopted, scientists in a variety of disciplines use these platforms to exchange scientific knowledge, generally via either Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or blogs. Despite the low frequency of use, our work evidences that scientists perceive numerous potential advantages to using social media in the workplace. Our data provides a baseline from which to assess future trends in social media use within the science academy.

(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.
