Communication: Mobile social media communication takes two forms: company-to-consumer (in which a company may establish a connection to a consumer based on its location and provide reviews about locations nearby) and user-generated content. For example, McDonald’s offered $5 and $10 gift-cards to 100 users randomly selected among those checking in at one of its restaurants. This promotion increased check-ins by 33% (from 2,146 to 2,865), resulted in over 50 articles and blog posts, and prompted several hundred thousand news feeds and Twitter messages.
The push toward video content has plenty of anecdotal evidence—as you browse your Facebook News Feed and Twitter timeline, you’re likely to see videos all over. There’s data to back up this trend: Videos posts get more views, shares, and Likes than any other type of post. And it’s not even close.

A key component of setting effective goals for your social media strategy is to determine what metrics you’ll use to measure their success. Go beyond vanity metrics such as retweets and likes. Focus on things such as leads generated, web referrals, and conversion rate.

In 2012, Lays created an annual social media campaign that allowed fans to create their own flavor for a $1 million prize for whatever flavor was voted the best. After 3.8 million submissions from fans who participated, the top three choices were Cheesy Garlic Bread, Chicken & Waffles, and Sriracha. The fans were now able to purchase the three flavors in stores then cast their vote on Facebook or Twitter for the best flavor. Lays gained a 12% increase in sales during the contest. Garlic Cheesy Bread was eventually named the winner of the contest.
Twitter has seen its fair share of turmoil recently — Jack Dorsey, one of the founders, is back as CEO, and the company recently laid off 8% of its employees — but it’s still the first place many people turn to to see what’s going on.
Great list, tho it probably applies more to kids in the US. Some of those apps do not feature much in Ireland. In many European countries Whatsapp is all the rage, especially in those like Spain where texting still costs money.

Eine Einwilligung nach § 4a BDSG kann nach den Datenschutzgesetzen nur dann wirksam erteilt werden, wenn sie auf der freien Entscheidung eines informierten Nutzers beruht. Das Problem bei sozialen Netzwerken besteht aber vorwiegend darin, dass die Nutzer formal eingewilligt haben und sich zumeist keine Gedanken über die Gefahren machen und den Netzwerken ein blindes Vertrauen entgegenbringen.
Creating a killer social media campaign isn’t about the support of a great brand or having the right assets. It’s about striking the delicate balance of perfect timing, relevant messaging and the right audience. While everyone and his mother — and g…
Google+ hat seinen Höhenflug nicht halten können und ist heute praktisch bedeutungslos (neuere Benutzerzahlen gibt es nicht). Man hat das Gefühl, dass Google selbst (wieder mal) die Lust an einem Projekt verloren hat. Einige Unternehmen nutzen Google+ noch aus Suchmaschinenoptimierungszwecken, was natürlich Humbug und somit Zeitverschwendung ist (man glaubt in diesem Bereich gerne vielen Gerüchten, siehe dazu mein Artikel “Pole-Position bei Google – wie geht das?”).
Social media isn’t about blasting your company’s sales pitch on social, it’s a two-way channel where you have the opportunity to enrich relationships with your customers. For example, social media allows tourism brands to create dialogue with travellers, therefore creating relationships with customers before, during, and after they have booked a trip with the company. This kind of social media dialogue between brands and customers is something traditional advertising cannot achieve.
