The What, the Why & the Who – How are Brands Using Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Did you know that just over one quarter (27%) of organizations have a dedicated social media team, with almost two-thirds (65%) assigning social media tasks on top of existing job responsibilities, typically to employees working in marketing or PR?


These findings come from a recent survey, which also revealed that a combination of relevant education and experience is the most sought-after quality for a company looking to hire someone to work in their social media department. Also, the vast majority of firms (86%) measure their social media ROI by standard metrics such as Likes and followers.


65% of organizations cite lack of time as their biggest stumbling block to social media success, and 87% say that increasing brand awareness is their number one goal.

Ranking the 100 Most InDemand Employers Using LinkedIn Data [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ranking the 100 Most InDemand Employers Using LinkedIn Data [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Whether it’s a tech start-up or a prestigious global accounting firm, some employers are more desirable than others. For companies, this affects how easily they can recruit; for employees, it’s tied to your professional reputation.

Using an extensive professional data set, LinkedIn identified which companies are most attractive to potential candidates in this infographic of LinkedIn’s Most InDemand Employers.


What makes these rankings unique is that they’re based on the actual actions of over 175 million professionals. Last year, LinkedIn had over 15 billion interactions between professionals & companies. That data was cross-referenced with thousands of survey responses to pinpoint specific activities that best indicate familiarity and interest in working for a company: connecting with employees, viewing profiles, visiting Company Pages, and following companies. After crunching this data and normalizing for things like company size, the top 100 global list was created. Then LinkedIn profile data was applied to rank the most sought-after employers among professionals in five countries and four job functions.

A new survey has just been released that shows how companies approach social media in the workplace with some pretty surprising findings. When you work in a more open and flexible company, it’s easy to forget that many people, particularly in larger organisations, are subject to fairly intense monitoring or policing of access to social networks. And, somewhat worryingly, the policies adopted towards use of social media don’t just apply to the workplace, but outside of it as well.

Working from Home and Social Media — The New Workplace Currencies [Infographic]

Working from Home and Social Media — The New Workplace Currencies [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
If you’d just graduated college, and had the right degree to have employers knocking down your doors, what would you ask for? A recent study asked just that to college students and young professionals around the world, and they found some startling results. For one, money isn’t everything.

As you can see in the infographic below, 56% of students will not accept a job from a company that bans social media. This has certainly been a popular pastime for large authoritarian companies of late, and that kind of policy may keep smart, young workers out of their work force.

The biggest element, though, has to be that 60% of students think “they have a right to work remotely with a flexible schedule.” Certainly, as years pass and security improves on remote channels, we’re going to see more people working from home, at least a few days a week. The fact that college students are interested only means that top employers will need to offer it to get access to some of the brightest minds.
