    [Blog] China Social Media: 6 Critical Sites
    China blocked Twitter and other micro-blog technology (Fanfou.com) in 2009 when riots started in the Western region of Xinjiang. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google and others are blocked in China. Roughly 30% of China (1.3 billion) is online vs. roughly 75% in the U.S. This equals 390 million Chinese online, more than the entire U.S. population (310 million). Important Chinese Sites: Weibo: The Twitter of China. Weibo remains and is growing.  Interestingly enough, 140 characters maximum isn’t as limiting in Chinese as it is in English.

    This is a crappy little blog and the “award” means nothing, but I can say this much – we really do explore social media every day and do whatever we can to find what’s good and bad about it. Every year (for a whopping 3 years running!) we highlight who we believe is the top social media site of the year. It’s not a popularity contest. It’s not based on (much) empirical data. There’s no voting. The team sits down and argues for an hour on Skype and I write up the piece. We’re not gurus. Long story short, our opinion means nothing. Reddit

More so, blog commenting in a niche or target market also gives you access to other users who may be interested in what you have to offer and hence visit your website. Sharing ideas, new perspectives and ways to do things with your blog will help you get the right attention and should be top on your list as far as generating relevant traffic to your website is concerned.

    [Blog] Hierarchy Of Communication
    Members communicate by blog posts/videos/UGC. Not all types of communications are equal. When you meet someone in person you form a deeper relationship with them than thousands of online interactions. We’re increasingly seeing a hierarchy of contact. At the lowest levels members talk via contributing content which others read. It’s slow, thoughtful and not interactive. At the higher levels are immediate response, real-time communication and stronger context (i.e. talking by IM is stronger than chat-rooms – you had to add that person to your instant messenger).

    Today we have a guest blog from Jennifer Murphy, the vice president and COO at NetPlus Alliance. Two years ago at the Industrial Supply Association Product Show and Conference, I was fortunate to attend one of the educational tracks hosted by a former Navy SEAL, Eric Greitans. His presentation related his experiences as a SEAL to the challenges we face in life, both personally and professionally. Greitans served abroad first as a humanitarian, and then on the front lines in Afghanistan post-9/11. Sound familiar? And eventually you get to a place where you lead.

    [Blog] Why social is about more than just social data
    But when we consider that social media extends beyond social channels into product reviews, forums and even blogs, the real impact of social is likely to be much, much greater. Didn’t make it to the Market Research Summit last week? spoke about why we need to take a much broader view of social. Rather than looking at social data and the impact it can have on the decisions our clients make in isolation, we need to take a more strategic view that takes into account the transformative effect that social is having on entire business models. Social has become a huge part of our lives.

Yesterday, my beautiful daughter turned two. Like all children that age, she had a wonderful party, attended by family and friends, ate lots of cake, ripped open carefully wrapped presents without a care in the world, and generally had the carefree party that children of that age have. And it reminded me of my own mortality. I had kids late in life. My wife is 32. But you know what? I can’t be sad.

    For example, a typical day might include: 9am - 11am: Growth tactics (invite 5 people, reach out to a blog for promotion). Professional community managers plan their week in advance. Their plans are based upon data collected from the community (growth, engagement and sense of community), and knowledge of what communities need to further develop.    Let's assume your community is in the establishment phase and you're a full-time community manager working 40 hours a week (I know, but let's imagine).

    Blogs can easily be fed to Twitter. Even if you have a blog, how hard is it to put 140 characters together? Two questions always pop up when people visit my Twitter account: Why is your background so boring? When do you think you’ll break 100K followers? The answer to the first question is easy – my graphic design skills are nil, I don’t want to use a free service, and I don’t want to pay someone to make it look good. Besides, it’s about the content, not the background, right? The second answer is even easier. Never. From there, we continued to grow.
