Influence on consumer decisions With the ever-increasing technological development of social media, this has affected consumers’ decision to buy the product or service provided by companies.On the other hand, social media has become an important factor in increasing the sales of brands, whether large or small, since the beginning of the Internet revolution. There is much research to prove this, based on the actions taken by the consumer through 2017. There will be many reports at the beginning 2018 confirming the degree to which social media has become effective in marketing companies and the importance of focusing on them.
Because large-scale collaborative co-creation is one of the main ways of forming information in the social network, the user generated content is sometimes viewed with skepticism; readers do not trust it as a reliable source of information. Aniket Kittur, Bongowon Suh, and Ed H. Chi took wikis under examination and indicated that, “One possibility is that distrust of wiki content is not due to the inherently mutable nature of the system but instead to the lack of available information for judging trustworthiness.” To be more specific, the authors mention that reasons for distrusting collaborative systems with user-generated content, such as Wikipedia, include a lack of information regarding accuracy of contents, motives and expertise of editors, stability of content, coverage of topics and the absence of sources.
The reality is, people spend twice as much time online as they used to 12 years ago. And while we say it a lot, the way people shop and buy really has changed, meaning offline marketing isn’t as effective as it used to be.
If you’ve seen an article online marked as ‘sponsored’, you’ve seen a native ad. Businesses must pay to have their content published, but the article isn’t advertorial in nature — it’s educational and fits the style of the website or publication it’s featured in. Native advertising can also refer to boosted social media posts on platforms like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram, as well as PPC, which is ‘native’ to Google’s search results.
For quite some time, the only way to post content to your Facebook page was using the Facebook app. But that often got confusing with posting content to friends. So Facebook created an app called Pages Manager a couple of years ago, specifically for page admins to better manage their pages from mobile devices.
Hi kyle! What would your recommend for someone like me who has no experience in digital marketing that want to engage in this social media marketing? What is the first step that I should take? I’m planning odesk to find my first online digital job.
Kik- it’s rated 17+ for a reason. ooVoo I have never heard of before. WhatsApp- heard of it, but it’s not popular in my social circle, so I unfortunately can’t supply any useful information. Instagram- fairly safe to use. Most of my friends just use it to chat with one another. Just make sure your kid sets theirs to private, and they should be fine. Tumblr- can have inappropriate content(porn, “smut”, profanity, graphic images of self-harm, drug use, etc.), but is generally fine since content that one will come across is determined by who one follows and which tags they search for. Radical politics are a theme throughout the website, too, but as long as you keep tabs on your kid’s blog, it should be fine. Twitter- can have profanity, but generally fairly safe to use. It’s good as long as it’s set to private. Vine- has plenty of inappropriate content. necessarily appropriate for every teen(let alone tweens), but most of it is just annoying stuff that kids at school will quote until they’ve sucked all the humor out of it. Burn Note- never heard of it, let alone used it before. Snapchat- pretty tame. Usually just videos of people acting like idiots and silly face selfies. Whisper- can have some pretty dark content. If I were a parent, I wouldn’t let a kid use it. Yik-Yak- I’d watch them pretty closely if they’re using this one. MeetMe- never heard of this. Omegle- keep them away from this. This is clearly for adults. Skout- don’t know much about it, but I’ve heard of it. Tinder- this and Grindr are both hook-up apps that should probably not be used by teenagers, though they should be fine for adults. A few more to add: Google+- practically no one uses this, but it should be fine. Reddit- as long as they only subscribe to appropriate subs, it should be fine. They probably won’t tell you they use Reddit if they do, though—it kinda defeats the purpose. Pinterest- absolutely fine for everyone. They might use Pinterest instead of doing their homework, though, so be warned… 4chan- if your teen is using this site, throw their computer out the window. 4chan isn’t even appropriate for adults. MySpace- if your kid is using this, they may have blows to their self-esteem due to them not being ranked as their best friend’s best friend. FaceBook- fewer teens are using this anymore. It’s mostly just parents. I don’t even know anyone under the age of 25 who uses this. Vimeo- kind of like YouTube, but fewer trolls in the comments section. YouTube- tons of profanity. Make sure they’re only watching appropriate stuff. Voat- basically a European clone of Reddit. People who get banned from Reddit flock to there, though, so it’s basically filled with the worst of Reddit. Digg- basically no one uses this. LinkedIn- teenagers will probably not be using this. It’s usually accountants and businesspeople who are looking to get jobs. Flick- photosharing. Mostly photography. iFunny- funny pictures and internet memes. Lots of swearing, but the content itself is pretty tame. LiveJournal- don’t know too much about this, but it’s pretty much like its name. WattPad- monitor their use of this. It has lots of erotic fan-fiction. Text messaging- don’t read these unless you have reason to believe they are in danger. It’s kind of like reading their diary, if their diary was a chat log. Telephone- this is used less and less and texting more and more, but they’ll be fine if they’re using the phone to call people. Don’t eavesdrop on their conversations, though. That’s snooping, and those are private (to them, the person they called, and the NSA : ) FaceTime/Skype- they should be fine, but make sure they’re safe if they’re skyping or facetiming a boyfriend or girlfriend. Actually talking to people- if they’re doing this, be glad. Don’t eavesdrop. This is the most private mode of communication. : ) Basically, as a rule of thumb, if it’s on the web for anyone to access, checking it out is fine and is never snooping, but if you’re stealing their phone in order to read their text messages one they’ve fallen asleep, that’s snooping, and it’s probably going to make them trust you less. Also, teenagers might sign up for social media accounts without your permission or knowledge. This is pretty normal, and usually is fine, but sometimes can be dangerous. If they’re over the age of 13, they can legally sign up for many social media accounts without parental permission, but it still is technically you responsibility as a parent to do your best to keep them safe online. Be aware of their online activity, but don’t be nagging or nosy or disrespect their privacy. Hopefully this has been helpful : )
Reddit has never really had the nicest design but don’t let that fool you – it’s a happening place on the web. It has a very strong and smart community of people who come together to talk about the topics they love while sharing links, photos and videos relevant to the subreddit topic thread where they’re participating.

Slack is a popular communication platform for teams that need to collaborate closely with one another. It’s basically a social network for the workplace. Team members can take advantage of real-time messaging, integration with other popular services like Dropbox and Trello, deep search for files and other information, configurable notifications and so much more. It’s meant to keep everyone in the loop about what’s going on at work or with a particular collaborative project and is super helpful for teams that include members working from different locations.

anyone heard of “hot or not”? My teens use this. I think the people are grouped by location. You click on whether you think someone’s pic is hot or not. Then you can text the person. (this is actually how Facebook started at Harvard!) Sounds potentially dangerous not to mention a real blow to your self-esteem if you get all “nots”!
There is little difference between this ad — which, it should be noted, is a word rarely used here; it’s called “content” — and one you might see in a magazine. But thanks to the endless demographic and lifestyle information spun off by sites like Facebook, the Furby ad can be aimed at consumers who are likely buyers, or fans of the brand.

Social media has affected the way youth communicate, by introducing new forms of language. Abbreviations have been introduced to cut down on the time it takes to respond online. The commonly known “LOL” has become globally recognized as the abbreviation for “laugh out loud” thanks to social media. Other catchphrases and neologisms include “YOLO”, which stands for “you only live once”, and “BAE”, which stands for “before anyone else”.
Studies of language and linguistics, particularly evolutionary linguistics, focus on the development of linguistic forms and transfer of changes, sounds or words, from one language system to another through networks of social interaction. Social networks are also important in language shift, as groups of people add and/or abandon languages to their repertoire.

Question for you, your followers, and commenters: Assuming you’re posting as often as one of the above infographics suggests, what percentage of your content is original? Or is most shares, retweets, quotes, etc.?
At the heart of digital marketing is your owned media, which pretty much always takes the form of content. Every message your brand broadcasts can generally be classified as content, whether it’s your ‘About Us’ page, your product descriptions, blog posts, ebooks, infographics, or social media posts. Content helps convert your website visitors into leads and customers, and helps to raise your brand’s profile online — and when it’s optimized, it can also boost any efforts you have around search/organic traffic. Whatever your goal, you’re going to need to use owned content to form your digital marketing strategy.

I’m a social media content consumer. I love to devour content and love to find great posts and tips to share. For me, the Buffer app is a huge favorite, but I’ll admit there’s a bit more to it than that. Let me explain…
More studies were done by Nancy K. Baym, Yan Bing Zhang. and Mei-Chen Lin who are professors at the University of Kansas. They found that 49 percent of all social contact with kin was conducted online, while 62 percent of interactions with friends employed the internet. They also discovered that not only do more people communicated through the internet, but it had a negative affect on relations. These doctors stated they found that the internet was rated worse for maintaining relationships, and better for getting schoolwork done and exchanging information
