I am an avid fan of Doctor Who, comic books, & gadgets. I am a Corporate Recruiter for C Spire, Co-Social Media Director of Mississippi SHRM and Social Media Director for the Pine Belt HRA. For more information, visit my blog, HRtoWHO, for all things Human Resources to Doctor Who. Finally, I am an official contributor to Performance I Create.
I like way you coveyed quite a bit of information but wrote in an almost converstational style. It felt like we were having a conversation.
Google Alerts - Great tool.
Buffer V. Hootsuite - I agree with your statements. I've been a longtime user of Hootsuite and generally enjoy the product. I wish they would update the GUI interface a bit. A merger of Buffer + Hootsuite would be fantastic, IMO.
Another sector that many forget to include are the non-profits using Facebook pages as a branding tool for the group, association, etc. A non-profit - being that it is a not-for-profit entity - often does not have funds allocated to spend on adverts. Facebook's monetization of posts only serves to limit a NP.
I was an advocate of using a Page over a Group in Facebook from 2010 - 2013 - going so far as to recommend no longer using groups over pages. This change in organic search has changed my opinion and my subsequent recommendations.
I've read quite a lot of books, posts, articles, etc. on blogging over the past several years. There are those who would agree with your post and those who would not; however, my comment isn't to be one of the distractors. I agree with you about finding that middle ground.
A properly targeted and well written post of a mere 400-500 words can have more impact than a poorly targeted and badly crafted one of 1,400-1,500. To futher play with the dual meaning carried with the post's title, it isn't how many words you have but how you use them.
Thanks for the info.
Chrome is my browser of choice and is such mainly becuase of the extensions. Thanks for sharing the info above - especially about RiteTag. I've begun to use Safari more recently becuase Facebook seems to be slower/stops updating after the recent redesign. Still, I find myself drawn back to Chrome.
Thanks for the suggestions.
You are right on several levels. It is amazing how freely, myself included, we put information about ourselves online for the world to see. Isn't it possible that less than "nice" people might access that information? Yes, of course.
I think that social media has the potential to create more introverted people, communities and even societies.
Thanks for the post. I enjoyed reading it.
