The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic]

The Challenge of Getting Visibility on Facebook [infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Many face the challenge of getting visibility on Facebook in the newsfeed, especially for business pages.  And, maybe that’s why I’m hearing more and more people talking about moving over to Google+.

It’s estimated that only about 10% of the people who follow your Facebook page, actually see your content. So you’re left to spend an unreal amount of time posting pictures, videos, polls and links in the hope that your followers will see and engage with your content. Or, you can advertise your content with promoted posts and offers in an attempt to get attention in the newsfeed.


If you’re committed to marketing your business on Facebook (and with over 1 billion users, who isn’t?), the infographic below may help you choose how to engage for the best return on your investment of time.

A History of Social Media [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

The very purpose of the Internet (every blog, website and virtual gathering place within it) is to let people connect, communicate, and collaborate.


That said, the concept behind Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networking tools isn’t new. These sites just give us new, easy-to use ways to do what we’ve always wanted to do online — exchange ideas and information. The Internet has always been social, and it always will be.
Here’s a handy timeline that might dispel any further historical myths about the true nature of the Internet, and where we’re all going with it, together…

Facebook Tab Engagement Down 53% Since Timeline Launch

Facebook Tab Engagement Down 53% Since Timeline Launch | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Tabs on Facebook brand Pages are getting a lot less clicks since Timeline was introduced.

Facebook’s Timeline redesign profoundly altered the appearance and the function of brand Pages.

It’s also significantly affected the degree to which fans interact with tabs, which point you to different content at the top of the Page.

According to data provided to Mashable by PageLever, tab engagement has dropped off 53% since brand Pages began adopting Timeline. The findings were drawn from approximately 500 Pages with more than 10,000 fans apiece.

You can see tab engagement begin to decline on Feb. 28, the day brands were able to opt-in to Timeline. There’s a steeper leading into March 30, the day all Pages were forced to convert..

You can use Facebook's new Timeline to your advantage in marketing your business online. Some of the new features are built for just this.

 

Now that the shift for businesses to Timeline on Facebook is complete, it’s time to start making the most of its visual storytelling power. We pointed out in an earlier post about the change- it’s important to put your personal feelings aside, understand what the shift means for your business and use it for maximum brand punch. After all, a great deal of marketing and advertising is done with pictures, so it’s really not as monumental a transition as it appears to be.

In fact, because of visual flexibility, you might find that you can do more with Timeline than your previous Page. This can help your organization, boost its online presence and create brand continuity throughout the Internet. The results? Amazing...

Facebook Timeline: Disliked by the Masses [INFOGRAPHIC]

Facebook Timeline: Disliked by the Masses [INFOGRAPHIC] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

A whopping 70% of Internet users dislike Facebook Timeline.

Facebook layout changes are rarely welcomed with open arms by the majority of users and Timeline has been no exception.

A whopping of 70% of people who responded to a SodaHead poll would ditch Timeline if they could. Some 20% like it and 10% of survey respondents do not have Facebook accounts. The survey asked 1,327 people what they thought about the soon-to-be mandatory Facebook Timeline.

The countdown to full-adoption of Timeline started two weeks ago, when Facebook announced that users would see notifications on their home page and then have seven days to clean up their Timelines. Facebook hasn’t set a specific date for the universal adoption of Timeline, but it should happen “within a few weeks.”

Facebook Timeline & The New Lifestreaming Era | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Facebook's new Timeline, currently in a limited developer release but set to be unveiled to its hundreds of millions of users any day now, is going to shake up the social networking landscape.

It's going to bring lifestreaming - formally a geeky activity based around RSS feeds - to the mainstream. In my view, Timeline is the smartest and most significant thing Facebook has done since launching a developer platform in May 2007.

10 years of social media by the numbers [infographic]

10 years of social media by the numbers [infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Facebook launched ten years ago in February 2004. Social media hasn't, doesn't and won't stay still. As Myspace rises, Friendster declines. The pattern's repeated itself a few times already, and even Google hasn't quite cracked the magic social network formula, at least not yet. The crown currently belongs to Facebook, a company that's made some big, big startup purchases on the way, although Twitter continues to pack (arguably) more influence. A whole lot has happened in the last decade, but we've tried to squeeze the more interesting parts into something a little more visual.

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

The Path to Social Media Success in 2013: A 12-Month Plan [Infographic]

The Path to Social Media Success in 2013: A 12-Month Plan [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it

Often, the best way to reach a huge goal is to break it down into small, less intimidating goals.


To help small businesses tackle the daunting task of developing a social media presence (without feeling overwhelmed), Intuit has created a "Path to Social Success in 2013" infographic.


The 12-month plan divides the goal of achieving social success into quarters, each focusing on a specific goal:

  • First quarter: Take social media inventory.
  • Second quarter: Work on relationships.
  • Third quarter: Integrate everything.
  • Fourth quarter: Look backward, then forward.

For each quarter, Intuit then lists big ideas for each month to reach that goal.

For example, the first quarter is about taking social media inventory, so January is dedicated to assessing your social fitness; February, to revisiting your social goals; and March, to establishing ways to measure success, such as number of followers and fans, traffic to website, social mentions across platforms, share of social conversations, and social influence.

There’s nothing new under the sun?

There’s an assumption that, just because social media keeps evolving and we start to use new tools, that ‘social media’ is a new phenomenon. Nothing could be further from the truth.


This informative infographic tells the story of how people have been social on the internet, from the birth of email and Usenet to up-to-date tools like Pinterest and Google+.

Lauren Moss's insight:

Interesting timeline of events, statistics + trends, as they pertain to the 'social history of the internet'...

The format and graphics enable a strong and clear visual understanding of the content being shared and a straightforward means to compare various points in time with regard to the internet in general, as well as specific social media platforms.
