Nice job Adam.
I very much agree with the at the table interaction. For Instagram, the servers should all know the Twitter address of the establishment in case someone is taking photos of food and wants easy help to mention through Twitter.
To me, it is very unfortunate that Timeline for Pages puts updates from fans into a tiny out of the way box where they will barely be seen. It's such a gift when a fan posts a photo of themselves at your establishment but though it will boost edgerank, it is almost invisible on the Page.
Thank you very much Joel! Using that source, I was able to find the Comscore figures of 11.7 million unique visitors/month for the USA and 13.76 worldwide. Maybe better to state "monthly" than "weekly"?
Here is the most useful board I have seen so far on Pinterest that collects Pinterest accounts for business, brands and blogs large and small. It is up to you to evaluate how well they are doing. http://pinterest.com/mshahab/brands-businesses-blogs-on-pinterest/ You can tweet @MShahab to ask to have your relevant account added.
I would very much appreciate your verifying this information as I am working on the final edit for an article about Pinterest for a local newspaper. I was surprised to see you write "debuted in 2008". I looked into "when Pinterest started" a month ago and collected some notes here: http://lindasherman.tumblr.com/post/16849074038/when-did-pinterest-get-started
From Quora: “Work on Pinterest began in December 2009 and the site achieved closed beta status in March 2010." From Pete Cashmore writing for CNN published Feb 6: "launched almost two years ago"
"loyal following of more than 11 milliion visitors per week" - since Pinterest gave you the information about which companies THEY think are doing best on Pinterest (I assume very recently) is that figure also from them or is there a source for that and as of when?
Well done Maria! I have always used #11 as a differentiator when talking to social media marketing consulting prospects. It makes a tremendous difference to be able to help them formulate a social media marketing plan within the context of their business (and depending on the size of the company - their personal life plan).
All 11 points are excellent. I would go a bit further with #5. Before the days of social media, I was known for having the largest number of influential face to face connections in my community. How did that happen? Easily meeting people and genuinely enjoying them. A social media manager is a personality. There are some people who think that a social media manager need never be seen in public. I disagree. They should be someone you are proud to have associated with your brand and happy to have out there networking IRL (in real life) - of course with smart phone in hand - as well as from behind their computer.
