LinkedIn is the social network for professionals, a place to have an online resume, connect with people from your industry or potential employers, and read relevant news. Most people only use LinkedIn's main features, but the social media platform also has very useful ones, sometimes hidden or not as much promoted to its users, who are therefore missing on very useful functionalities.
We are very excited today to be bringing you some good news about your Facebook page’s potential for organic reach! Being the bearer of bad news is no fun – like when text only updates got the boot, or organic reach declined – so this is a welcome opportunity.
Probably the biggest change to management practice in recent years has been the rise of email. Almost all forms of management, from review of information to actual decision making, take place within email. Even decisions that may take place in face-to-face meetings (real or online) frequently require the validation of a confirming email.
This post isn't an intensive training session on how Facebook tags work. Instead I want you to think about WHY you tag a person or a brand. As with anything in social media, business and life, you should think about the people you are impacting with any action. What is in it for the person on the other end?
Instagram just updated their app the other day with a new feature that allows you to tag people in the pictures you share. Tagging is a good thing when it comes to engagement and business. In a lot of my articles, I talk about the importance of fan appreciation, social proofing and encouraging your fans to get behind your brand. This new tagging update helps with all of these nuances by allowing your fans to tag your brand in a photo.
In an update to their mobile apps today, Instagram has added Facebook-like tagging to uploaded images. In an official blog post, Instagram explains that the new feature is called Photos Of You. Here's how it works. When you upload an image to Instagram, you can now associate that image with people as easy as adding hashtags.
LinkedIn has finally introduced in-status tagging, which has been part of Facebook and Google+ for a long time. This feature makes it far easier for people to follow companies mentioned. Here’s a quick guide we’ve pulled together to show you how to use this new feature.
By tagging your content, you do get found by those who have not circled you – but are looking for the tag(s) you use.
I give you my recent life story. I have to get tools made and live, whether they are instantly profitable or not. I have come to understand that what people know me for is know-how that they don't want to pay for, and any way you slice it, is not going to produce a level of revenue that will allow me the freedom to continue taking my own ideas and those of collaborators, refining them together, and then bootstrapping their creation and launch.
This week, Facebook announced a full-scale rollout of the automatic photo tagging suggestions that have been quietly available to a number of international users for months, and we ... freaked out, really. I'm hedging a bet that not one person reading these words hasn't seen a post on their Facebook news feed along the lines of "OMG FACEBOOK IS STEALING YOUR FACE NOW!!1!"
