Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims

Infographic: 13% of social media users are identity theft victims | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving.

Identity theft!

Randy Hilarski's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:59 PM

Be careful what you post on social media. Public means public people!

Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/

Infographic: What every social media campaign must have

Infographic: What every social media campaign must have | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Social media won't help your company one bit if you don't have a clear and compelling message to share.

Social media may be the new, trendy way for companies to communicate to their audiences, but it won't do anything to boost business if companies don't have a clear message to send.

 

In a recent infographic, Wickware Communications explains that in order to be successful on social media, a company must have a strong core message that explains "why you do what you do, what makes you different and better, and how it helps your clients." The graphic focuses on financial firms, but its takeaways are relevant to all companies.

The infographic emphasizes that to make messages clear, brands must have a strong voice that engages audiences and addresses their concerns, a memorable visual identity, and a believable communications statement.

Thanks for sharing. I am curious if green equals the idea of wealth in all countries or if that is only in countries with green currency? That would be an interesting research topic if it hasn't been done yet.
