I’ve recently been working on a research paper for new communication technologies, and have found many interesting blogs and articles relevant to the topic I am researching, which is the public relations aspect of social media regarding companies and business.
Check out my comments and links below:
I have to agree that they might be OVER-simplifying some of their features. Like and Share are completely different states of mind, I couldn’t even imagine them being joined. Just because I like something doesn’t necessarily mean I want to share it, and vice-versa. We aren’t that stupid and can spend the extra effort to use two different features. UGH
This is some great advice for marketing event organizers, but also applies to those that don’t know much about twitter and hashtags/chats. I actually learned how they work now because of these tips and am grateful for this post.
Its nice that the chats can have different formats, I particularly like the one where the chat has a moderator and a few important guest speakers, that way you can also promote audience members at certain times to ask questions and so forth (At least I assume).
I also love the fact that you can archive chats. I haven’t used any of these features so its garnered my interest into using twitter for livechats.
Thanks for outlining some of the methods and ways for monitoring social media, especially how there are many freeware approaches to monitoring services for small startups and personal use, Awesome!
