Keeping up with all the social media sites can be challenging. Yesterday I posted on Twitter, G+ and Instagram. I’m having trouble finding time to keep up with Facebook or to learn Periscope. It’s always interesting to see which posts spark the most engagement on which site. I can post something that initiates a long conversation on Twitter, yet that same post will be lukewarm on G+ and vice versa. It all got me thinking about content, and what kind of content is the most popular on each social network.
I read today that 87% of all customer service related comments on social media are ignored by brands. I don’t know if that number is correct, but if it is, it seems high to me. That is a lot of ignored tweets, Facebook feedback, Instagram comments and other social media opportunities for engagement that are just dangling out there somewhere.
It doesn’t surprise me that humans want to share their love of wearables with their furry friends. After all, it seems only fair to let our cats and dogs join in on the fun that wearable tech can offer. When I read about this, I knew I had to blog about it for @mistygirlph and @bittymom, the two biggest cat lovers I know.
A person’s age and how it affects their attitudes and decisions fascinates me. I’ve written about it many times. We all have two ages. We have an online age, and then of course there is our physical age. It doesn’t matter to me if someone is 18 or 80, if that person is interesting, I’ll talk to him or her online. However, we all leave clues that hint to our actual age. You can read more about that in How Your Blog Posts and Social Media Posts Give Away Your Age.
I don’t like Facebook. Everyone who knows me well knows that. For social media marketers though, Facebook is a necessary evil. My Klout score is 71, but it instantly jumps 6 points higher every time I log into Facebook and post something (which I haven’t done since January). I have some friends who don’t share my opinion though. I know people who are as addicted to Facebook as I am to Twitter. If you’d like to know how to waste less time on Facebook, this post is for you.
