How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers

How to Use Hashtags on Twitter: A Simple Guide for Marketers | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

A simple guide to understanding how to effectively use Twitter hashtags in marketing and how you shouldn't! [note mg]

 

Every time we host live webinars (and as this long list suggests, that is quite often), quite a few attendees get confused about what to do with the hashtag we provide. What is it? What does it do? How do you create one? Let me explain!

How Social Login Enhances Websites | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

Do you manage a site that encourages people to create user accounts?

 

Are you looking for an easy way to tap the power of Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn to quickly create user identities?

 

If so, keep reading for my review of a social service that we used to quickly build up members of our Networking Clubs.

 

Why Social Login?

 

Once people login to their favorite social network, they generally don’t log out. Most people have a social account with one of the major social networks. This means their photograph and contact details are already registered elsewhere...

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer

Plan on a #SocialMediaFail | Social Media Explorer | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

Nowhere do the mistakes, poor practices and questionable judgement of individuals, organizations and brands get exposed with such glee as they do in the sphere of the social web. It’s no wonder some CEOs or senior decision-makers entrusted with the stewardship of brands break out in a cold sweat at the simple mention of the words “social media.”

 

Mark Schaefer wrote a great post about Negativity Bias as it relates to the social web and how this phenomenon has created a playing field rife with PR land mines for anyone active in the space. Schaefer sparks dialogue at the end of his post by posing the following question:

What Do You Know? Examining the Big 4 Online Answer Sites

What Do You Know? Examining the Big 4 Online Answer Sites | Understanding Social Media | Scoop.it

[You can use the Big 4 online Answer Sites for market research, content ideas, and to build credibility and thought leadership for you and your company. Here's how.]

 

An ideal connection between social media and search might just be “Answer” sites. The essential concept behind an answer site is that visitors can post a question eager to get it answered by someone considered an expert, who is knowledgeable in the subject matter. The response could also be powered by public knowledge with consensus determining the “best” answer. Answer sites offer users the capability to be both the inquisitor and the expert. More often than not, in basic human interaction, we can answer each others’ questions based on our own personal familiarity. We can achieve this on a massive scale using these Answer Sites.
