You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week. Best regards :) Philippe

Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up

Overwhelmed By Social Media? Here Are 7 Ways to Keep Up | Communicate...and how! | Scoop.it

This a timely and important piece from Mark Schaefer of {grow} in which he touches upon several issues which confront all of us who are trying to keep our heads above water in the ever-evolving world of Social Media.

 

To quote: "Not only do the platforms shift every day, the rules of engagement change constantly, too. Can anybody keep up with the real (and rumored) changes just to Facebook's EdgeRank formula? What we considered best practices six months ago are passé today. Social media is overwhelming, especially when there is pressure to master every new platform that comes along  How do you keep up?."

 

Remember:

 

** Platforms may change but marketing fundamentals remain the same

 

** Absolutely nobody can navigate this changing world alone as there are too many facets to it, so form a mutually beneficial support group.

 

** There's too much informationfor any one person to keep on top of all of it, so pick a main focus and try really hard to keep mainly to that.

 

** Know your audience and go where you will find them. This might mean giving up on one of the major platforms.  Swallow hard and do it!

 

** The more successful you become and the more your reach grows, the less time you will have to engage one-on-one with people. Don't let yourself feel guilty about this as it is inevitable.

 

** Go to a trusted source for information but be warned: Such a place may not (yet) exist.
