By now I believe that all of you know that the new Facebook reactions are here and gone are the days of the simple “Like.” Today we can express our love, anger, laughter, surprise and sadness on our friends’ posts. We’ll probably never get a true “dislike” button on Facebook, but at least Facebook started to roll out something closer.
Here are who we all want to not only block but strangle …
This question comes up a lot, is it better to “favorite” a tweet you like, or “re-tweet” it. Okay, let’s break it down first:
In a nutshell, here is what you might be doing wrong on social media without knowing it!
Do you jump into hashtags just because it’s trending?! Do you post the same exact thing on all social media platforms without tailoring it? eeeek, BAD IDEA!
Among many major changes which are the user’s main picture and bio which are now scaled to the left, and the more space dedicated to the header photo. This revamped timeline makes tweets look larger and focus more on photos. Also, tweets with more engagement appear larger in user timelines, and you can filter based on photos/videos, replies and so on.
Remember how annoying it was when someone had an instagram handle which is different from their twitter handle. You thought million of times whether to mention them on instagram and not share it on twitter or not to mention them on instagram and share it on twitter.. There’s nothing worse than that!
Should I Outsource My Social Media Management?
Well, I am not against outsourcing but part of the beauty of social media is its authenticity. Social media is built on trust and real credibility and by outsourcing it you are misleading people and you lose the trust.
Outsourcing takes the “social” out of social networking. Social networking requires a personal connection with those you are trying to network with. You can only do this yourself. To me outsourcing social media is like hiring someone else to answer your phone or email pretending to be you. (image this for a bit) would you do that? Hope not!
Digital/Social Media is different from the Internet ( short form of the technical term internetwork ). To understand how, we must understand the Internet’s evolution over the years.
The internet started as what is now called “Web 1.0”. Remember? This term used to describe the conceptual evolution of the World Wide Web. Technologically, web 1.0 concentrated on presenting, not creating. User-generated content was not available on web 1.0 webpages. The web was an information portal. No more. No less. It lacked scalability, interaction & context.
Even though we love social media, there’s still something to complain about, it has become human nature to complain about anything whatsoever .. Even though social media is the “flavor du jour”, David Spark was able to find plenty of people willing to tell him what really annoys them about social networking.
