[Twitter] 4 Things Your Community Needs From You In 2016
Every day I see someone on Twitter or Facebook say that they’ll have to “resort” to social because they can’t get a response from traditional customer service and support channels with the companies they need to talk to. When I first got involved with online communities (mumblemumble years ago now), they were largely digitized gatherings of misfit humans around common interests or topics. Now we have this interesting dynamic, especially between brands/businesses and their various communities. It’s not exactly personal. It’s not easy. Period. Please.

[Twitter] Facebook Groups
This is also true for LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, and many other platforms. Facebook pages hold little value to community building. Facebook groups is a different matter. These have three big advantages over any other platform. 1) Audience size. They have a big audience which knows how to use the platform. 2) Existing Habits. Members of the audience typically visit the platform every day, often many times a day. Thus you receive regular notifications. 3) Simplicity. The audience size is irrelevant.

Today's Wall Street Journal had Twitter abuzz about social media monitoring and privacy in closed communities ( 'Scrapers' Dig Deep for Data on Web ). Specifically, a health discussion board and a social media analysis vendor using individual accounts to access personally identifiable health information. It's obviously an ethical question, but whose ethics apply? As far as I can tell? Nobody's (yet). People are sharing personal stuff online, sometimes sharing more than they realize.

With the clamor in the marketing world about multichannel marketing, it recently dawned on me that most so-called multichannel marketing is more like “dual-channel” marketing. The campaigns that I’ve seen usually combine two symbiotic channels such as website and email, website and bricks and mortar, email and phone, direct mail and phone, print and PURL, etc. My guess is that way over half of all multichannel campaigns actually involve only two channels. Why is this important? Embrace dual-channel campaigns.

Plus, the rise in popularity of social media has spawned in-kind deals offering placements on another brand’s Facebook, Twitter, etc. It was exciting to follow along as Newcastle launched the campaign and proceeded to tease out the participating brands on Twitter leading into the big reveal during the Big Game.

You be the judge.
