How To Use Google+ Hashtags | Social Media Today | Social Media Tourism | Scoop.it
Google+ introduced hashtags, along with a number of other new features, last month in an effort to make the Google+ feed a little deeper and more interesting. Hashtags on Google+ are very similar to those on Twitter and now Facebook: you can use them to find, start and join conversations about specific topics. However, Google+ hashtags are slightly different to their Twitter counterparts.

What if Everything You Know About Social Media Marketing is Wrong?

What if Everything You Know About Social Media Marketing is Wrong? | Social Media Tourism | Scoop.it

...If you are employed in social media marketing, it is time for a healthy dose of reality followed by some serious soul searching and career planning. Some of you are lucky enough to work in the rare companies that create advocates with great products, service and mission and thus are equipped to leverage social media for marketing gain; most work at companies that have inflated their opportunities in the medium and are floundering with their social media marketing and content strategies.

 

Here's the way a large number of social media professionals today go about justifying their programs, along with some recent data that may (and should) scare the hell out of you if you work in social media marketing...

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, April 6, 2014 6:30 AM

All I can say is that I never really did get 'on' this bandwagon in the sense of trying to milk it for money.  I've always thought that most of what I saw/see on FB and Twitter is extremely silly bullshit  Who has time for such stuff is hard for me to image...especially nowadays with the economy in the tank.

 

I've always thought that any kind of content should have some real value to the reader whether they're your customer or not.  And furthermore that it should be just as much a type of self expression as anything else. 

 

People will make a decision about whether or not they want to 'like' or 'follow' you based on the perception they get of you as a person...or, in the case of companies, by their impression on what the companies really stands for and what they 'do' (and how it benefits people).

Not all engagement is created equal. Every social action requires differing levels of interest and involvement from your audience and their sentiment, their personal context, their stage in the purchase cycle, their technographic profile, and many other factors can have a great impact on the value of their engagement with your content.
