Infographic: When Social Media Consumers Go Viral | Media Tapper | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
Here's why brands have to be active on social media. If they don't, they'll be in a whole lot of trouble. Thanks to angry and disappointed customers, of course.

They can’t afford to ignore social networks; they have to participate on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. If they don’t, bad things can happen.
And I do mean bad things.

The Social Media Advocacy Model [Infographic] | visualizing social media | Scoop.it
In theory, as social media becomes more common place, organizational audience engagement objectives, strategies and tactics should evolve past acquisition towards advocacy. I’m sure some consumer brands are heading in this direction but, in my experience, many companies and agencies still seem to be focused on driving audience awareness and using “likes” and “follows” as success metrics.

To spark some discussion on the topic I thought it might be helpful to present an encapsulated view of advocacy. This infographic aims to present advocacy at a glance, explaining where it sits on the audience relationship spectrum while visualizing the steps organizations can follow to move connections towards becoming advocates...

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.”
