Friendster estaba en la cresta de la ola y Abrams llegó a ocupar la portada de distintas revistas. Pero a mediados de aquel año la valoración de los usuarios empezó a caer en picado. Había millones que se habían incorporado y los servidores empezaron a trabajar con lentitud. No podía soportar su éxito. Las páginas tardaban veinte segundos en cargarse. Se enfrascaron en una batalla pública contra los fakesters, usuarios que creaban deliberadamente perfiles con nombres e identidades falsos. Abrams se mostraba muy estricto para conseguir que la gente de Friendster usara su nombre real y eliminó a muchos de los  fakesters. Una serie de enfoques tecnológicos erróneos impidieron que Friendster pudiese solucionar sus problemas de rendimiento hasta mucho después de que los inversores lo apartaran de su puesto de CEO en 2004.

Using Dr Dave Chaffey’s approach, the Digital Marketing Planning (DMP) has three main stages; Opportunity, Strategy and Action.[56] He suggests that any business looking to implement a successful digital marketing strategy must structure their plan by looking at opportunity, strategy and action. This generic strategic approach often has phases of situation review, goal setting, strategy formulation, resource allocation and monitoring.[55]

Hay que recordar que Facebook ofreció 3.000 millones de dólares por Snapchat en 2013. Snapchat se negó y Facebook decidió que si no podía comprar a su enemigo, bien podía copiar lo que hacía y aprovechar los 500 millones de usuarios de Instagram, que ya era de su propiedad, para arrasar como una apisonadora.

Nessa aula, falamos um pouco sobre essa evolução da internet e sobre como ela impactou no Marketing Digital, dando origem a novas formas de pensar como o próprio Inbound Marketing.

Desenvolvido em parceria com o SEBRAE, o curso Marketing Digital para o Empreendedor ajuda da estratégia de implementação do Marketing Digital até a estruturação de um departamento de Marketing Digital. O instrutor do curso é Vitor Peçanha, co-fundador da Rock Content.

O que costuma dar aval para a área de Marketing Digital continuar crescendo e recebendo investimento é justamente ter um custo por aquisição que seja lucrativo perto do preço médio de venda dos produtos/serviços. Por isso, apesar de depender também do time de vendas, é um indicador essencial para o marketing.

Já não há mais lugar para achismos: tudo é confirmado com base em dados. As métricas devem ser “descascadas” como uma cebola, do mais geral (e estratégico) até a contribuição mais específica de cada detalhe (operacional).

Todos os dias, cerca de 100 bilhões de buscas são realizadas no Google e, estar posicionado para uma determinada palavra-chave muito buscada pode ser a diferença entre um site movimentado, cheio de pessoas navegando, querendo negociar e um site impopular.

TweetReach (28.679) aplicación gratuita y que nos ayuda a buscar el impacto que haya tenga una palabra, hastag, usuarios, etc. Pongamos por ejemplo, que buscamos un usuario en esta aplicación, lo que nos aparecerán son los datos sobre los retweets, el número de tweets que ha publicado o las respuestas que haya a ese usuario.

This tactic allows marketers to publish targeted ads in front of an interest category or a defined audience, generally called searchers in web speak, they have either searched for particular products or services or visited a website for some purpose.

When display advertising first surfaced in the world of marketing, many marketers were left with a bad taste in their mouth. The ads we were seeing lacked context and value, and many of us were quick to deem them untrustworthy…

En 2003 en Harvard, Zuckerberg empezó a hacer pruebas con aplicaciones diseñadas para chicos malos que tenían una orientación básicamente social: primero Course Match, luego Facemash.

Para impulsar la difusión de tus contenidos, es importante que le brindes a los usuarios una forma de compartir tus posts en sus cuentas y con sus amigos. Para ello sirven los botones sociales, que les permiten a las personas publicar tus posts en sus Redes Sociales con sólo presionar un botón. Si tu blog está alojado en los servidores de WordPress, puedes añadirlos con AddToAny, un plug-in desarrollado especialmente para ese sitio.

La adicción a las Redes Sociales es un problema que debemos saber detectar en nuestros estudiantes, y quizás te pueda ayudar por ejemplo decirles que anónimamente rellenen una encuesta, marcando una de estas opciones que hacen referencia al número de horas diarios que le dedica:

Pero siendo conscientes del gran avance que suponen las redes sociales, tal y como señala Díaz (2011, p.5), las redes virtuales pasan a ser redes reales con una importante función social. Se puede añadir también que para los más jóvenes, el hecho de no estar en contacto a través de estas redes supone una forma de no existir, de exclusión social, de no estar integrado en el mundo de los demás, de no participar en los acontecimientos de su entorno, de llegar a estar marginados.

Paralelamente al tremendo desarrollo y evolución de la tecnología digital, el marketing online ha ido experimentando, de manera progresiva y muy rápida, profundos cambios tanto en las técnicas y herramientas utilizadas (y en su complejidad) como en las posibilidades que ofrece a los receptores. ¡Veamos de qué manera!

An omni-channel approach not only benefits consumers but also benefits business bottom line: Research suggests that customers spend more than double when purchasing through an omni-channel retailer as opposed to a single-channel retailer, and are often more loyal. This could be due to the ease of purchase and the wider availability of products.[20]

Many companies turn to big agencies due to their world-class tools and diverse skill sets. It is oftentimes viewed as the “safe” decision for large brands but not always the best decision.

Algunos investigadores han sugerido que las redes sociales humanas pueden tener una base genética.19​ Utilizando una muestra de mellizos del National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health, han encontrado que el in-degree (número de veces que una persona es nombrada como amigo o amiga), la transitividad (la probabilidad de que dos amigos sean amigos de un tercero), y la intermediación y centralidad (el número de lazos en la red que pasan a través de una persona dada) son significativamente hereditarios. Los modelos existentes de formación de redes no pueden dar cuenta de esta variación intrínseca, por lo que los investigadores proponen un modelo alternativo «Atraer y Presentar», que pueda explicar ese caracter hereditario y muchas otras características de las redes sociales humanas.20​

Vero se presenta como una alternativa a Facebook de pago y sin publicidad. En sus primeros días y ante la oferta de un millón de cuentas gratis, esta nueva red social ha llamado la atención de medios y usuarios, pero es difícil saber si todos los que la hemos descargado seguiremos usándola la semana que viene. O dentro de unas horas. De hecho, la historia de las alternativas a las grandes redes sociales está llena de plataformas que hoy casi nadie recuerda. Y eso que han tenido mucho a favor: el mal clima de Twitter, la desconfianza hacia Facebook, la publicidad de Instagram… Todos queremos algo mejor, pero cuando nos lo dan, no lo usamos. Estos son algunos ejemplos. No incluimos casos como el de MySpace, que cerró, pero vivió momentos de gloria, sino solo aquellas plataformas que no llegaron ni a despegar.

Por exemplo, se você está recém começando suas ações digitais e seu site ainda não possui muito tráfego, pode determinar como objetivo o aumento de tráfego no seu site, seja em porcentagem seja em números absolutos.

Cuando los dos responsables obtuvieron sus respectivas titulaciones universitarias en 2002 quisieron comercializar su proyecto. Reconociendo que el uso de los estudiantes había sido moderado, teniendo en cuenta los posteriores éxitos de Facebook: decidieron concentrarse en los ex alumnos. Crearon una empresa llamada Afinites Engines, que lanzó una versión modificada de Club Nexus llamada InCircle, para grupos de ex alumnos. Su primer cliente fue la Stanford Alumni Association. En 2005 su cartera de clientes ya incluía redes de ex alumnos de 35 universidades, incluidas gigantes como la University of Michigan. Pero al poco tiempo de que empezara a funcionar Affinity Engines. Buyukkokten dejó la empresa y se fue a Google.

Zuckerberg trabajaba a temporadas escribiendo códigos para Harvard Connection. Al cabo de unas cuantas semanas perdió el interés. Al final, el trío de Harvard Connection acabó acusando a   Zuckerberg en una demanda federal de haber robado su propiedad intelectual. El caso se resolvió  a mediados de 2008 con el requerimiento de que ambas partes no revelaran los detalles. Pero ciertos documentos del proceso salieron a la luz. Demostrando que Zuckerberg empezó a evitar a los tres fundadores de Harvard Connection.  Se le acusó de apropiarse del trabajo de de los fundadores de Harvard Connection exigiéndoles que dejará de trabajar en Thefacebook, Zuckerberg explica que desde su primera intervención en el proyecto se había sentido decepcionado por la calidad del trabajo que los anteriores programadores habían hecho en la página. Lo califica como caótico y pretencioso. Negó las acusaciones.

Peach, además de enviar imágenes en varios formatos y vídeo, tiene una serie de comandos particulares llamados “palabras mágicas” (magic words), que al escribirlas se activan ciertas acciones. Por ejemplo: “echo”, crea una animación con el texto que hemos escrito; “play”, hace que comience un juego en la app; “battery”, envía a nuestros contactos el porcentaje de batería que tenemos; “weather”, la información climatológica de nuestra posición; “mood”, informa de cómo está nuestros estado de ánimo o “caption”, que agrega un texto a una imagen GIF al azar. Son solo algunos de los muchos comandos que aporta.

By using Internet platforms, businesses can create competitive advantage through various means. To reach the maximum potential of digital marketing, firms use social media as its main tool to create a channel of information. Through this a business can create a system in which they are able to pinpoint behavioral patterns of clients and feedback on their needs.[26] This means of content has shown to have a larger impingement on those who have a long-standing relationship with the firm and with consumers who are relatively active social media users. Relative to this, creating a social media page will further increase relation quality between new consumers and existing consumers as well as consistent brand reinforcement therefore improving brand awareness resulting in a possible rise for consumers up the Brand Awareness Pyramid.[27] Although there may be inconstancy with product images;[28] maintaining a successful social media presence requires a business to be consistent in interactions through creating a two way feed of information; firms consider their content based on the feedback received through this channel, this is a result of the environment being dynamic due to the global nature of the internet.[25] Effective use of digital marketing can result in relatively lowered costs in relation to traditional means of marketing; Lowered external service costs, advertising costs, promotion costs, processing costs, interface design costs and control costs.[28]

Antes, las redes sociales se veían como “un relajo” en donde las marcas podían decir cosas sin pensarlo (estratégicamente) o donde los pasantes empezaban “a coger fuego” en sus carreras profesionales. Los tiempos han cambiado y esta es una industria que está en constante evolución; sin embargo siguen siendo ese lugar en donde las marcas pueden divertirse y tener un impacto medible, lo que lleva a que no se trabajen en silos deben trabajar en conjunto con toda la estrategia comercial de una empresa.

Como señala Roberto Balaguer en su libro Internet: un nuevo espacio psicosocial: “Internet es básicamente placentero, de ahí que tenga posibilidades de tornarse una adicción. Aparece un aumento de la autoestima en los casos de adicciones, ya que encuentran en esta “vida alternativa” un placer, una sensación de intimidad, pocas veces lograda y una sensación de “ser uno mismo”

Los conceptos de las redes sociales no son nuevos, y muchos de  los componentes del Facebook inicial habían sido originariamente introducidos por otros.

El análisis de redes sociales estudia esta estructura social aplicando la Teoría de Grafos e identificando las entidades como “nodos” o “vértices” y las relaciones como “enlaces” o “aristas”. La estructura del grafo resultante es a menudo muy compleja, puede haber muchos tipos de lazos entre los nodos. La investigación multidisciplinar ha mostrado que las redes sociales operan en muchos niveles, desde las relaciones de parentesco hasta las relaciones de organizaciones a nivel estatal (se habla en este caso de Redes políticas), desempeñando un papel crítico en la determinación de la agenda política y el grado en el cual los individuos o las organizaciones alcanzan sus objetivos o reciben influencias.

Estas redes sociales se basan en la teoría de los seis grados, Seis grados de separación es la teoría de que cualquiera en la Tierra puede estar conectado a cualquier otra persona en el planeta a través de una cadena de conocidos que no tiene más de seis intermediarios. La teoría fue inicialmente propuesta en 1929 por el escritor húngaro Frigyes Karinthy en una corta historia llamada Chains. El concepto está basado en la idea que el número de conocidos crece exponencialmente con el número de enlaces en la cadena, y sólo un pequeño número de enlaces son necesarios para que el conjunto de conocidos se convierta en la población humana entera.

Orkut, una red social muy bien diseñada y abierta a todo el mundo. apareció en enero de 2004, justo dos semanas antes  que de Thefacebook.com. Al principio arrasó en Estados Unidos y se mantenía junto a un floreciente MySpace. Pero a finales de 2004, había sido adoptado por los brasileños. Una campaña de base hecha en Brasil para obtener más adhesiones que en Estados Unidos habías captado la imaginación de los jóvenes brasileños. Los estadounidenses empezaron a abandonarlo. Hoy en día Orkut, todavía en manos de Google, sigue siendo una de las redes sociales más extensa y sofisticadas del mundo. aunque más de la mitad de sus miembros son brasileños. Otro 20% de sus usuarios viven en la India. La disminución  de expectativas de Google con relación a Orkut puede deducirse tal vez por el hecho de que en 2008 la sede Orkut fue trasladada a Brasil.

Hoy en día se está viviendo un mundo diferente, un mundo globalizado el cual está totalmente conectado a la red. Estamos viviendo en una sociedad donde las personas prefieren comunicarse por medio de sus redes sociales, dejando a un lado el resguardo de su vida privada y exponiéndose a los peligros de hoy día. Están tan hipnotizados con las cosas que te ofrecen estas redes, que no le dan importancia a los riesgos que se tienen al dar información personal, provocando poco a poco problemas en la seguridad.

Es muy difícil que una alternativa a Twitter o a Facebook tenga éxito desde cero. Sobre todo, por el efecto red. Conectar de nuevo con todos nuestros amigos y seguidores en otra plataforma que ofrece más o menos lo mismo es una barrera difícil de superar. Por poner un ejemplo, si todos tus amigos van cada viernes a un bar y ellos van a ese bar porque otros amigos suyos también van al mismo sitio, te va a resultar muy difícil convencerles para probar otro local. Puede que el bar que a ti te guste esté más limpio y la cerveza sea mejor, pero al final resulta que está vacío.

For that reason, you’re probably less likely to focus on ‘leads’ in their traditional sense, and more likely to focus on building an accelerated buyer’s journey, from the moment someone lands on your website, to the moment that they make a purchase. This will often mean your product features in your content higher up in the marketing funnel than it might for a B2B business, and you might to use stronger calls-to-action (CTAs).

A popular component and feature of Twitter is retweeting. Twitter allows other people to keep up with important events, stay connected with their peers, and can contribute in various ways throughout social media.[234] When certain posts become popular, they start to get tweeted over and over again, becoming viral. Ellen DeGeneres is a prime example of this. She was a host during the 86th Academy Awards,[235] when she took the opportunity to take a selfie with about twelve other celebrities that joined in on the highlight of the night,[236] including Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts.[237] This picture went viral within forty minutes and was retweeted 1.8 million times within the first hour.[235] This was an astonishing record for Twitter and the use of selfies, which other celebrities have tried to recreate. In May 2017, Carter Wilkerson’s tweet at Wendy’s asking what it would take to get free chicken nuggets for a year surpassed Ellen DeGeneres’ famous tweet with over 3 million retweets.[238] Retweeting is beneficial strategy, which notifies individuals on Twitter about popular trends, posts, and events.[239] The use of hashtags can also be used in retweets, and can be used to take count of how many people have used that hashtag. For example, in the first five months of 2013, five new hashtags relating to climate change were created. [240]

“Although I’ve had similar responsibilities in different organizations over the past 15 years, my department names have been a moving target – internet marketing, e-marketing, e-productivity, ecommerce, interactive marketing, and digital marketing. All the while, I’ve tried to maintain a tether to the “integrated marketing” and “marketing mix modeling” concepts birthed in the 90’s. They’re so dreamy, right? In 2014, I’m now comfortable calling that Digital Marketing. The digital threads of data and attribution allow us to build multi-faceted, measurable, and flexible plans that have the ability to adjust to the co-variability of business priorities and customer preferences.”

“Who Invented Social Media |Social Media Surveillance”

“Most people still associate our brand with appliances and lighting,” Ms. Boff explained. “But that’s a very, very small part of G.E. We are early adopters; we are a brand that is about innovation, invention, discovering things. And early adopters are the kind of people we want to be talking to, the kind of people who might want to work at G.E., or partner with us, or invest with us. And we want to humanize the company. We want to throw open the doors and behave the way a person behaves.”

Training in social-media techniques, tactics and unwritten rules may not be needed for “digital natives”, such as workers who are already comfortable and experienced with using social media. However, for workers who are not familiar with social media, formal or informal training may be needed. Brand management and engagement is done differently on social media platforms than over traditional advertising formats such as TV and radio ads. To give just one example, with traditional ads, customers cannot respond to the ad. However, if an organization makes a major gaffe or politically incorrect statement on social media, customers and other regular citizens can immediately post comments about the ad.

They certainly overlap, which is why it gets confusing. For example, you can share media with your social network to gather likes and comments–a form of social networking. But you can also just upvote a link on Reddit, which is a social media platform, to help out the community and give your say in the matter without any intention of building relationships with other users.

4. Define content and engagement strategy. We’ve noted that encouraging engagement and participation are the biggest challenges to social media marketing, so clear strategies are needed to show how to achieve these.

Abstract Previous research has established the benefits of branding for business-to-business (B2B) organizations. Various tools can be used to support B2B brands, including the internet and other interactive technologies. Yet research on how organizations use

The company has reinvented itself in two distinct ways. First, Facebook as a platform has been quietly evolving into something different than a social network—something less personal, but no less useful. Second, Facebook as a company has been furiously hedging its bets on the future of technology and social media, to the point that it is no longer properly described as merely a social network—no more than Alphabet (né Google) is properly described as a search website.

There are direct benefits of social media in the form of greater market share and increased audiences.[34] To increase these benefits technologies that better facilitate social media marketing has been developed; an example this technology is the development of bots.

On review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 96% based on 292 reviews, with an average rating of 9/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “Impeccably scripted, beautifully directed, and filled with fine performances, The Social Network is a riveting, ambitious example of modern filmmaking at its finest.”[59] On Metacritic, the film holds a score of 95 out of 100, based on 42 critics, indicating “universal acclaim” and making it one of the site’s highest rated movies of all-time.[60] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “B+” on an A+ to F scale.[61]

As well as digital marketing being highly dependent on the Internet is that it is subject to a lot of clutter, so it marketers may find it hard to make their advertisements stand out, as well as get consumers to start conversations about an organisations brand image or products.

So, our latest research suggests an improved approach to planning in this sample of marketers, with fewer than half without a digital strategy. Congratulations if you’re one of these companies! If not, read on.

Twitter’s value lies in its ability for your posts to go viral: the more people share your posts and “retweet” your content, the more followers you will attain. We post recent news, updates and articles we have in major media. Hashtags make a big difference in building momentum for your posts, so pay attention to what is trending today and include relevant hashtags. We also retweet people who have many followers to increase the likelihood of them following us back.

Although social media accessed via desktop computers offer a variety of opportunities for companies in a wide range of business sectors, mobile social media, which users are accessing when they are “on the go” via tablet computer or smartphone can take advantage of the location- and time-sensitive awareness of users. Mobile social media tools can be used for marketing research, communication, sales promotions/discounts, and relationship development/loyalty programs.[24]

Social media has allowed for mass cultural exchange and intercultural communication. For example, people from different regions or even different countries can discuss current issues on Facebook. As different cultures have different value systems, cultural themes, grammar, and worldviews, they also communicate differently.[259] The emergence of social media platforms collided different cultures and their communication methods together, forcing them to realign in order to communicate with ease with other cultures.[259] As different cultures continue to connect through social media platforms, thinking patterns, expression styles and cultural content that influence cultural values are chipped away.[259] Social media has offered a new platform for peer pressure with both positive and negative communication. From Facebook comments to likes on Instagram, how the youth communicate and what is socially acceptable is now heavily based on social media.[260]

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”!

With its extensive reach and dynamic functionality, there are very few businesses that couldn’t benefit from having a presence on Facebook. And starting there will make it easier when you want to try something new.

While social networking has gone on almost as long as societies themselves have existed, the unparalleled potential of the Web to facilitate such connections has led to an exponential and ongoing expansion of that phenomenon. In addition to social media platforms, the capacity for social interaction and collaboration is increasingly built into business applications.

The feeds would still be ranked based on what your friends are liking, sharing, and commenting on, and they’d still include personal updates. But the reorganization would make your reading interests, rather than your social connections, the focal point of the app. In short, Facebook would be transforming itself from a book of faces into a book of news.  

Facebook’s casual, friendly environment requires an active social media marketing strategy. Start by creating a Facebook Business Fan Page.  You will want to pay careful attention to layout, as the visual component is a key aspect of the Facebook experience. 

People aren’t just watching cat videos and posting selfies on social media these days. Many rely on social networks to discover, research, and educate themselves about a brand before engaging with that organization. For marketers, it’s not enough to just post on your Facebook and Twitter accounts. You must also weave social elements into every aspect of your marketing and create more peer-to-peer sharing opportunities. The more your audience wants to engage with your content, the more likely it is that they will want to share it. This ultimately leads to them becoming a customer. And as an added bonus, they will hopefully influence their friends to become customers, too.

As a clinical psychologist and speaker on raising kids in the Instant Gratification Generation, I found this to be extremely helpful and to the point. I have shared it with many parents. New apps are developed all the time so sharing this information is the best way for parents to know what is out there. In our area the app causing an rash of cyberbullying and threats to schools is the “anonymous” app called Burnbook, which is based on the Burn Book from the movie Mean Girls.

In 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) begins work on a new concept that eventually turns into the global social network known as Facebook. Six years later, he is one of the youngest billionaires ever, but Zuckerberg finds that his unprecedented success leads to both personal and legal complications when he ends up on the receiving end of two lawsuits, one involving his former friend (Andrew Garfield). Based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires.”

The app I choose that helps me be more social might create a bit of controversy, but as I was thinking about this question I thought “Which app do I actually use the most?” The answer that kept coming up was the Facebook Messenger app. Yes, that’s what I said.

Digital marketing is an umbrella term for all of your online marketing efforts. Businesses leverage digital channels such as Google search, social media, email, and their websites to connect with their current and prospective customers.

It worked. The Nilla Wafers Facebook page grew from 15,000 to 356,000 likes. More important, Mr. Bough says sales are up 9 percent so far this year compared with the same period in 2012. And the advertising costs for that increase are a small fraction of a conventional media campaign. (He declined to get specific.) The reason is efficiency. Instead of huge outlays for campaigns that would be seen by vast audiences, on television for instance, Mondelez spent small sums on people who had demonstrated an affinity for the brand.

If you still think WeChat is just about messaging, you’re vastly underestimating the platform, which now counts more than 650 million users. Weixin, as it’s known in China, is the most dominant social network in the People’s Republic, where Facebook, Instagram and many other apps are blocked. WeChat is where you go to pay bills, hail rides, play casual games, browse news, send friends money, and much more. Today, there are millions of “official accounts” on the platform which act as mini apps within the app, enabling users to interact with brands, services and even celebrities. Looking at what WeChat is to China, you can’t help but think this is what Facebook wants to be to the world.

Data suggest that participants use social media to fulfill perceived social needs, but are typically disappointed.[126]  Lonely individuals are drawn to the Internet for emotional support. This could interfere with “real life socializing” by reducing face-to-face relationships.[127] Some of these views are summed up in an Atlantic article by Stephen Marche entitled Is Facebook Making Us Lonely?, in which the author argues that social media provides more breadth, but not the depth of relationships that humans require and that users begin to find it difficult to distinguish between the meaningful relationships which we foster in the real world, and the numerous casual relationships that are formed through social media.[123] Sherry Turkle explores similar issues in her book Alone Together as she discusses how people confuse social media usage with authentic communication. She posits that people tend to act differently online and are less afraid to hurt each other’s feelings. According to Chouinard, “You always see a bunch of friend groups hanging out together when each of them is caught up in their digital devices; they constantly want to check what everyone’s tweeting, what they are doing, instead of talking to the friends they’re sitting with, or holding conversation and engaging with each other”[128] Some online behaviors can cause stress and anxiety, due to the permanence of online posts, the fear of being hacked, or of colleges and employers exploring social media pages. Turkle also speculates that people are beginning to prefer texting to face-to-face communication, which can contribute to feelings of loneliness.[124] Some researchers have also found that only exchanges that involved direct communication and reciprocation of messages to each other increased feelings of connectedness. However, passively using social media without sending or receiving messages to individuals does not make people feel less lonely unless they were lonely to begin with.[125]

Reddit, or similar social media platforms such as Stumble Upon or Digg, are ideal for sharing compelling content. With over 2 billion page views a month, Reddit has incredible social media marketing potential, but marketers should be warned that only truly unique, interesting content will be welcomed. Posting on Reddit is playing with fire—submit spammy or overtly sales-focused content and your business could get berated by this extremely tech-savvy community.

There’s a lot to unpack here. Those of you who’ve never read a Captain America comic book or seen him in the Marvel movies would be forgiven for thinking of Captain America as an unblinking mascot for American nationalism. In fact, the best thing about the story of Captain America is the implicit irony. Captain America begins as Steve Rogers—a man with the heart of a god and the body of a wimp. The heart and body are brought into alignment through the Super Soldier Serum, which transforms Rogers into a peak human physical specimen. Dubbed Captain America, Rogers becomes the personification of his country’s egalitarian ideals—an anatomical Horatio Alger who through sheer grit and the wonders of science rises to become a national hero.

Companies are increasingly using social media monitoring tools to monitor, track, and analyze online conversations on the Web about their brand or products or about related topics of interest. This can be useful in public relations management and advertising campaign tracking, allowing the companies to measure return on investment for their social media ad spending, competitor-auditing, and for public engagement. Tools range from free, basic applications to subscription-based, more in-depth tools.

The end goal of any marketing effort is to generate sales. Although social media is a useful marketing tool, it is often difficult to quantify to what extent it is contributing to profit. ROI can be measured by comparing marketing analytic value to contact database or CRM and connect marketing efforts directly to sales activity.

Digital marketing professionals in positions of leadership, such as manager or director, will oversee Internet marketing campaigns from program management to execution. They are usually required to provide clear direction to the other members of the marketing team, such as the copywriter, web designer and sales executives.

snapchat is becoming less and less used for “public social” & more for “private social” like one to one, not one to all. This makes it a less than perfect platform, not to mention the quality of customer that is on there.

Still confused? Try to think of social media like fruit. Apples, bananas, oranges, grapes, berries, melons and pineapples are all part of the broader fruit category the same way that social networking, social news, social bookmarking, wikis, blogs and private web messaging are part of the broader social media category.

Approximately 79% of adults use Facebook–but are your customers actively engaging with your brand there? Understanding your audience is necessary to learn things like who buys your products, what age group is the toughest to sell and what income level makes up the most of your returning customers? As for social media, it’s just as critical to know your audience.

This does not surprise Billie Swalla, an evolutionary biologist and director of the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories. Swalla says that she and most of her colleagues are on ResearchGate, where she finds the latest relevant papers much more easily than by following marine-biology journals. “They do send you a lot of spam,” she says, “but in the past few months, I’ve found that every important paper I thought I should read has come through ResearchGate.” Swalla admits to comparing herself to others using the site’s ‘RG Score’ — its metric of social engagement. “I think it taps into some basic human instinct,” she adds.

Whether the app’s popularity will last is another matter. Other social apps, like Ello and Peach and Sarahah, have been able to briefly capitalize on Internet virality, but ultimately lacked the staying power to become viable alternatives to Facebook and Instagram.

Profile pages: Since social media is all about communication, a profile page is often necessary to represent an individual. It often includes information about the individual user, like a profile photo, bio, website, feed of recent posts, recommendations, recent activity and more.

On the other hand, the integration of social media in the business world can also pose challenges. Social media policies are designed to set expectations for appropriate behavior and ensure that an employee’s posts will not expose the company to legal problems or public embarrassment. Such policies include directives for when an employee should identify himself as a representative of the company on a social networking website, as well as rules for what types of information can be shared.

1. Twitter. Perhaps the simplest of all social media platforms, Twitter also just happens to be one of the most fun and interesting. Messages are limited to 140 characters or less, but that’s more than enough to post a link, share an image, or even trade thoughts with your favorite celebrity or influencer. Twitter’s interface is easy to learn and use, and setting up a new profile only takes minutes.

Diffusion of ideas and innovations studies focus on the spread and use of ideas from one actor to another or one culture and another. This line of research seeks to explain why some become “early adopters” of ideas and innovations, and links social network structure with facilitating or impeding the spread of an innovation.

The distinction between marketing and digital marketing is rapidly disappearing. Where there used to be a clear line drawn in the sand, it simply doesn’t exist anymore. I’d even go as far to say that one can’t exist without the other.

WhatsApp, the most popular messaging app in the UK and on half the country’s iPhones, according to Mobile Marketing Magazine, has more than 350 million monthly active users globally. That makes it the biggest messaging app in the world by users, with even more active users than social media darling Twitter, which counts 218 million. About 90% of the population of Brazil uses messaging apps, three-quarters of Russians, and half of Britons, according to mobile consultancy Tyntec. WhatsApp alone is on more than 95% of all smartphones in Spain. The power users and early adopters of these apps, the ones you’re most likely to see tapping their thumbs over a tiny screen, are under 25.

Because every business is unique and has a different target demographic, history and competitive marketplace, no single marketing strategy works for every business. The fact that social networking is constantly evolving also makes keeping up with changes challenging and influences a company’s marketing success rate.

To get a rough measure of that quality, Nature asked a subset of the most active respondents what they actually do on the sites they visit regularly (see ‘Idle, browse or chat?’). The most-selected activity on both ResearchGate and Academia.edu was simply maintaining a profile in case someone wanted to get in touch — suggesting that many researchers regard their profiles as a way to boost their professional presence online (see ‘A battle for profiles’). After that, the most popular options involved posting content related to work, discovering related peers, tracking metrics and finding recommended research papers. “These are tools that people are using to raise their profiles and become more discoverable, not community tools of social interaction,” argues Deni Auclair, a lead analyst for Outsell, a media, information and technology consulting firm in Burlingame, California. By comparison, Twitter, although used regularly by only 13% of scientists in Nature’s survey, is much more interactive: half of the Twitterati said that they use it to follow discussions on research-related issues, and 40% said that it is a medium for “commenting on research that is relevant to my field” (compared with 15% on ResearchGate).

Social marketing represents the extent to which social-marketing resources (e.g., online conversations, sharing links, online presence, sending text-messages) are used to increase a firm’s financial capabilities (e.g., sales, acquisition of new customers) or a non-profit’s voluntary sector goals.

Social Media Marketing is unceasingly proving to be successful and it has given traditional advertising a run for its money — thanks to the advanced metrics in this domain that now help marketers understand their audience’s preferences and purchasing behavior a lot better.

5. Remarketing: Remarketing plays a major role in digital marketing. This tactic allows marketers to publish targeted ads in front of an interest category or a defined audience, generally called searchers in web speak, they have either searched for particular products or services or visited a website for some purpose.

This is the same reason why brands should never take on every social media channel possible in their current marketing strategy. Try to choose the channels that have the most importance based on your brand’s goals. Avoid over complicating a strategy with too many targets and objectives. Simplicity can take you a long way.

Digital marketing, the promotion of products or brands via one or more forms of electronic media, differs from traditional marketing in that it uses channels and methods that enable an organization to analyze marketing campaigns and understand what is working and what isn’t – typically in real time.

Price says that 3 million papers have been uploaded to Academia.edu, and Madisch says that 14 million are accessible through ResearchGate (although he will not say how many of those have been automatically scraped from freely accessible places elsewhere). An unpublished study conducted by computer scientists Madian Khabsa at Pennsylvania State University in University Park and Mike Thelwall at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, suggests that by August this year, the full texts of around one-quarter of molecular-biology papers published in 2012 were available from ResearchGate. That said, these days papers are easily found on many sites: a study conducted for the European Commission last year found that 18% of biology papers published in 2008–11 were open access from the start, and said that 57% could be read for free in some form, somewhere on the Internet, by April 2013 (see Nature 500, 386–387; 2013).
