    [Social Media] Communes vs. Communities
    Old business models applied to use of social technology aimed to attract people into transactional traps by appealing to and creating self interest. Getting your blog, your content and profile highlighted in one of  major media communities strokes the ego and fulfills the intended self interest, you are important and admired.  These social media models represent the same old media models just with a different twist.

    Share This is billed as “the social media handbook for PR,” and it is very well-written (Richard sent me a copy). We had a terrific #measurePR chat last week. Richard Bagnall , one of the founders of Metrica, which is now part of the Gorkana Group, was our special guest.

    [Social Media] Have You Committed Netflix Adultery?
    Let me say, it’s super tricky to see plot lines and possible spoilers on social media and not want to watch ahead. Did you know there is such a thing as “Netflix adultery”? Recently two articles, including one in  The Cut and the Huffington Post , referred to this as the act of watching a show “that was supposed to be our thing” without your partner, due to an obsession with said show or an overwhelming desire to find out what happens next. Netflix is more likely to cause issues than just regular DVR due to its automatic start of the next episode on queue.

    Some might argue that users pinning copyrighted content is beneficial to brands since someone else is spreading your message on social media for free. Pinterest has been notoriously slow to address copyright issues. Because the “Pin It” button works on any website that has not opted out of Pinterest, users can grab images from almost anywhere on the internet, regardless of copyright issues. This affects artists the most because the photos are not always credited properly by the original user who pinned it. However, the more worrying issue is for individual content creators.

    Add that to the never ending abundance of information from blog posts to tweets to status updates to magazines, books and other forms of media and you can quickly start to feel like we’re drowning. “Draft new social media strategy” is not a task, it’s a project. We’re all incredibly busy these days trying to balance an endless list of demands on our time. Every day it seems as though we’re saying “yes” to another personal or professional project while jotting down another idea that we hope to pursue someday. Turn up the music!

    [Social Media] Permeable Community Strategies & Sympathetic Social Systems
    There seems to be an emerging social media trend toward creating brand profile pages intended to have 'conversations' with customers. feel like this is a horrible misuse of social networking & digital strategy. Treating social networks as a medium rather than a community. If you only see social networks as a distribution channel for your message, you're missing the point. Although seeing large numbers of updates improves brand recall, the end result still tends to be less effective than creating permeable communities & sympathetic social systems.

    [Social Media] A Pinteresting Story
    With rumors swirling of Facebook 's pending IPO (and the billions at play that go along with it), it does seem like the most opportune time for the online social networking behemoth to go public. In fact, if Facebook's growth and interest continues to propagate, we can expect that more and more platforms will simply offer social networking solutions that can live and play alongside and within Facebook (much like Twitter does). Think about software that was developed for the Windows platform, and this will be a similar strategy for many of the newer social media startups.
    [Social Media] Instagram Does the Two Step - And Steps In It
    Instagram was all the rage, and I've even heard from a number of sources that it is now one of the definitive social networks for the teen and tween demographic. It's not too long ago (okay, in social media terms, it was eons ago) that Flickr was one of the major social networks. It was a more comprehensive way to connect with the community (see above), better integration with other social networks, robust discovery and an easy to use app. And just like that, the photo sharing app market is up for grabs. So what happened? Backed by Yahoo!, This was misstep #1.

Some interesting figures about mobile browsing and user activity: 38 percent of web users in the U.S. access the web from their phone (or 89 million people). 53 percent of Americans using their phones to go online do so at least once a day. 65 percent of mobile users aged between 18-29 use their phones to go online. 43 percent of mobile users aged between 30-49 use their phones to go online.

    [Social Media] Why 98% of Opinion Blog Posts Suck
    An example: “Twitter isn’t the end-all of social media.”. The crimes are so socially heinous that the reader immediately swears off the behavior and rushes to comment and separate themselves from the wrongdoers. I hate 98% of opinion posts. rarely write opinion posts because they are the blogging equivalent of smoking weed. Like weed, they seem harmless, but after a while, they make you lazy, dumb, and boring. The real problem is that it takes a great deal of skill to write a credible and logical opinion post. Anything less is just an adult temper tantrum. Excellent.
    [Social Media] Here’s how you make marketing people love
    Historically, conventional wisdom has suggested that luxury buyers are not as active on social media and still prefer analog, high-touch real estate processes. In recognizing the changing demographics of luxury buyers, and the true pervasiveness of social media across all population groups, the Corcoran Group turns the “social media doesn’t work for luxury” axiom on its ear. Social media specialist Bari Mogill and her colleagues have left thousands of tips about New York City that are digitally “attached” to specific locations. Brilliant.
