What is social media? #CalUsm

Social Media Revolution 2013

Social Media is more than a platform.

Social media is about…

Listening & Monitoring

Community Social media is NOT community – it facilitates community. Each community is unique and there is no guaranteed recipe for success.

Networking The network will always be there, now the trick is how to you mesh it into your everyday business plan.

Networking Not connecting with one person. You are connecting with many. The one connection bridges you to their network.

Conversing Using these websites to converse with friends, family, customers, potential customers, employees, stakeholders, etc. Who are they? PEOPLE.

Conversing For brands, people connect with brands online and the conversation online typically starts around offline brand experiences.

Storytelling The narrative is no longer linear, but a nonlinear experience.

Collaborating & Sharing A place where you can come together from all over the world. A place where you can share things all over the world.

Understanding Social media is just a piece – or multiple pieces – to the puzzle. You need to understand how each one works and if it fits into your strategy.

Content You need to learn to produce content that people want, use and bring into the conversation.

Benefits of Social Media Learn more about your brand. Discussion about your brand becomes easier for people. Easily share information about brand. Higher commitment and involvement.

Social Media Cost Me My Job

Facebook “Friends” with a co-worker?

Oh yeah, and this was CC’ed to the entire office.

Facebook “Friends” with your boss?

They won’t know, because they aren’t my Facebook Friend and don’t follow me on Twitter…

Even Senior Members of Management can slip up…

The college life…
