The Social Business Shift: What Businesses Have to Do [Infographic]

The Social Business Shift: What Businesses Have to Do [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Is it about having your brand on Twitter or Facebook? Is it about private social networks?
Certainly, these all play a part. But what social business is truly about a “shift”, a move from enterprises attempting insulate itself from disruption and instead greeting it warmly.

To pull this off, organizations need to establish a more transparent environment, both externally and internally. A social business allows organizations to better solicit and understand customer feedback, to react in real-time to industry changes; it allows communication to go from a top-down model to a back-and-forth, up-down strategy.

The social business shift is leading to a social business economy...

The Growth of Social Media

The Growth of Social Media | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Say what you will about the tidal wave that is social media: it’s over-hyped, a fad halfway through its 15 minutes, that surely won’t be around in a few years’ time.
But take a look below at the steep curve of the user growth rate in all age ranges and demographics, and the continuing pervasiveness of social networking into every facet of work, play and life in general. It’s hard to argue that social media hasn’t changed forever how we interact and connect online.

How to kick-start social media integration in your company

How to kick-start social media integration in your company | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
The InSites Consulting study shows that in spite of low integration, social media adoption is high among UK companies, as about 70% have a Facebook page and 62% use Twitter.

The data suggests that many companies have started social media in a tactic way, by rapidly creating an account on a popular network, without it being part of a total strategy.

Uncertainty concerning the financial added value is the main inhibition to investment, the study shows, even though the survey found a positive correlation between the extent of social media integration and the company’s financial results.

InSites put together a infographic to help companies get a kick-start social media integration, check it out.

Infographic: Diffusion of Social Networks

Infographic: Diffusion of Social Networks | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
They say a picture's worth a thousand words and much digital ink has been spilled recently on impressive sounding (yet relatively unimpressive) user counts, so here's an infographic showing the diffusion of social networks as at last month to put things in perspective.

There are 7 billion people on the planet, of which 2 billion are on the Internet. Given Facebook has 800 million active users already under their belt, I've assumed that the total addressable market for social media is around a billion Internet users and growing — both with the growth of the Internet and as growing fraction of Internet users.

That gives social media market shares of 80% for Facebook, 20% for Twitter and <5% for Google+. In other words, Twitter is 5x the size of Google+ and Facebook is 4x the size of Twitter.

Many of our friends on Twitter have design blogs, and frankly, that was the initial way we got connected. In fact, I started using Twitter because I thought that some of these people had some curious content that I constantly wanted to check out.

For someone who loves design, it’s easy to find what you want by just googling what you are after, but finding blogs that you continuously want to visit can sometimes be hard. Tech King, the masters of putting together some really useful infographics, have been hard at work putting the most popular design blogs into one infographic. The whole theme of the infographic is that it’s based upon what social following they have. It’s a system that makes serious sense if you think about it...

Social Marketing vs Social Media Marketing

Social Marketing vs Social Media Marketing | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

If you work in social marketing, it’s likely that you spend a lot of your time disambiguating the terms ‘social marketing’ and ‘social media marketing’, especially if you talk work to people outside the sector.

Social marketing is designed to lead to changes in behaviour, changes in policy or changes in environment to benefit the social good. Social media is a tool (alongside direct marketing, advertising etc.) which utilises social networks to drive sales (in accordance with a marketing plan), create positive PR and/or drive brand awareness.

Both represent a shift towards consumer orientation to realize organizational (social) goals and tailoring the product to the customer.
