Connecting 2 the World: Is constructing knowledge based on analysis a work literacy skill?

Buzz Marketing for Technology

Is constructing knowledge based on analysis a work literacy skill? The idea came to me, as I was reading, that I could use the framework presented in the book to help develop analytical skills in my students and to help them to learn to construct knowledge from data by: learning how to collect relevant data. Imagine giving workers this tool in knowledge work. Is constructing knowledge based on analysis a work. Knowledge and Meaning Making.

Home About What We Do PayPal Speaker Contact Subscribe Press / PR Bare Feet Network Internet Literacy for Business: Blogging, Podcasting, Online Video & Social Media Howto, Consulting, Training & Public Speaking Home > News , Social Media , Speaking > Things to Learn from Hawaii Musicians Using Social Media Things to Learn from Hawaii Musicians Using Social Media by Roxanne Darling on July 15, 2010 Last night I facilitated a panel discussion at the Hawaii Chapter of the Social Media Club , featuring three Hawaii musicians: Jenn Wright , Kenneth Makuakane , and Shawn Moseley Livingston. They represent what we call here “mixed plate&# in several ways. Male and female, native and haole, classical, funky, and Hawaiian style music, and each person sings, writes, plays multiple instruments, and produces! Although they were talking as musical artists, many of their ideas are relevant to all of us. Their biases and perspectives are quite different though, and that makes for a good panel that keeps us from drinking just one brand of social media koolaid! Here are some highlights from my notes I wanted to share with you. The best social site for musicians currently: Reverb Nation. (Unanimous!) Love your fans, respond to their comments, give them stuff! (For example, free downloads) Beware of perfectionism – though do put some effort into making your music come from your heart. People can tell when you are just a copycat versus really committing something to your art. Ken and Jenn recommended getting a presence on several social networks. Jenn is using YouTube a lot and getting results. Ken is using Facebook a lot and getting results. Shawn uses his website and email list , and keeps his social web contacts truly personal. Use the tools ! Tagging, commenting, sharing your schedule and your samples. Give people links to share with their friends to your music, to your gigs, etc. Make a really good demo ! You will instantly stand out from the crowd. We can’t rely on mainstream radio – we have to market ourselves. Use the podsafe music communities to share your music with podcasters. This is a way to share networks and offer mutual support. Try these: Ioda PromoNet , Ariel Publicity , Music Alley (formerly known as the Podsafe Music Network). Search for podcasters who have radio shows that play your style of music (or cover your type of services) for interest. Now for some plugs! Welcome to our Canadian visitors! Jake Bergen, of TractorBeam , was there visiting us from Alberta, Canada with his Dad Rod Bergen. Many thanks to Fresh Cafe for hosting our event. There back room warehouse space is perfect for our meetings, and the staff is so supportive. Please check out the many other happenings there, especially the fine jazz from Fresh Standards (Bruce Hamada and Jim Howard) every Tuesday night starting at 8 pm. For our event, awesome live music was provided by Yoza Allen. Please check her out around town and on her web site. Read this review of her at the Honolulu Weekly. Go Waimanalo! And visit the East Honolulu Clothing Company. They shared their postcards with us so it’s easy to share their info with you! Yes it takes a village to host these events and I have tremendous gratitude for Tara Coomans , Judi Clark , Angie Blaisdell , and Rob Bertholf – my co-leaders at Social Media Club – for helping produce this event.

If an artist is unwilling to engage with their fans online and via mobile, it is my view that perhaps they should reconsider being an artist as a career path. More on this: [link] Roxanne Darling July 22, 2010 at 1:51 pm @The Music Void – Thank you for sharing your blog post. I agree and recommend my readers check it out. Your other point about admins communicating for their star bosses is tricky territory. It is less about trying to pretend there is an objective criteria for “good music&# as the traditionalists would have us believe, and more about finding the people who love your work and feeding them on a regular basis!

I am experimenting with the new uStream Producer “desktop application.&# It allows me to record and live stream at the same time, while mixing in graphics, etc. You’ll see a small attempt at that at the end. Over time you will see many different forms and iterations of these web cam chats as I am using them to explore both my interactions with you, the visitor, but also the technology available to us. I am not seeing my voice in sync with my lips – do you see that glitch too? More links and questions… The big question for you: How much lead time does it take for you to be comfortable planning a business trip to Hawaii? Please leave me a comment. We’d love to host more conferences here and it’s vital we know what it takes on your side of the pond to get here! Links Mentioned: Aliza Sherman – “Social Media Talent Exchange&# (I love that idea!)

I had been hired to create, staff, and execute a Social Media Campaign for the Bureau, all in the span of less than six weeks. There are many discussion points in here: How speed is affecting business and marketing The power of collaboration between new media and old media Using trust and gut instincts to choose the right partners Know how to choose the right mix of skills & reach for media team Giving your partners free reign to do what you hired them to do Social media has a lot of requirements behind the scene to be successful Add training for destination partners as part of the marketing plan Download iPod Version | Duration: 6:55 Mahalo to our new media team: Chris Christenson, The Amateur Traveler Judi Clark, Digital ID Coach Peter Liu, In a Cool Hour (and photo credit for our group shot!) Liza Pierce, A Maui Blog Shane Robinson, Bare Feet Studios Roxanne Darling, BeachWalks.tv and Project Lead Please stay tuned for a followup post where I will share some data with you and the four-pronged approach that helped make this campaign so successful!

It seems like Hawaii as a State is behind the mainland in social media… for me, it feels like the Big Island is behind the rest of Hawaii in social media… Please let me know of any social media clubs on the Big Island that you might hear of. Part of are problem on the Big Island, is that we live often over 100-150 miles round trip just to attend meetings amongst us into social media. I’d love to find some more online folks on this island that are into social media. I created the “FBI Blogs&# as a way to just connect Big Island Bloggers… and that has taken off in it’s own way. My problem is many people think they can just register and get a blog and become a FBI Blogger because they have a blog. They don’t realize that I do pick and choose the blogs that are on the site because of one reason or another. I really look forward to working with folks on bridging the gaps on things. I myself am just learning tools myself. If you know of anyone on the Big Island that is big on social media and looking to talk to others… please let me know. dt Roxanne Darling June 23, 2009 at 5:18 pm @Damon – we really hope to take our meetings on the road this year and include all of the people on the neighbor islands. We also live stream each meeting – you can see the links in the left column of the [link] web site. We meet the second fri of each month, 5:30 – 7 pm. Maybe you could host a tweetup to watch together and we could possibly arrange a live video chat too?

Why I Rarely Answer My Phone | Bare Feet Blog

Bare Feet Studios

Home About What We Do PayPal Speaker Contact Subscribe Press / PR Bare Feet Network Internet Literacy for Business: Blogging, Podcasting, Online Video & Social Media Howto, Consulting, Training & Public Speaking Home > Aloha , HowTo , Productivity > Why I Rarely Answer My Phone Why I Rarely Answer My Phone by Roxanne Darling on August 5, 2010 Increasingly, as a digital native, citizen of the internet, geek girl – call me what you wish – I find myself more and more discerning about how, when, and with whom I use the phone. It is simply another trending practice that all marketers would be wise to note: Interruption of any kind is increasingly irritating and unnecessary in today’s world of technology and community. Consider this yet another free tip from your early adopter, Rox. Clive Thompson in Wired.com captures the sentiment perfectly: Consider: If I suddenly decide I want to dial you up, I have no way of knowing whether you’re busy, and you have no idea why I’m calling… Plus, voice calls are emotionally high-bandwidth, which is why it’s so weirdly exhausting to be interrupted by one. (We apparently find voicemail even more excruciating: Studies show that more than a fifth of all voice messages are never listened to.) The bold emphasis is mine. FYI our insider club of precious clients have phone access to me 24/7; you folks are listed in my Caller ID. Yet even with you/them I don’t always answer immediately. Because I have more than one client, I often choose not to drop my work on Client A to answer a call from Client B. I will listen to the voice mail as soon as I “come up for air&# and will respond accordingly. So let me explain “come up for air.&# The nature of my work is very brain intensive. When I sit down to craft a proposal or to build a blog or troubleshoot a marketing problem, I go deep into many layers of experience, technology, human behavior, internet psychology, the client’s budget level, etc. It is not a casual exercise. I have on average, 8-10 different software applications that I run concurrently. In these busy times, I am ever more committed to using my time efficiently, as the various social web communities would otherwise tug at me literally 24/7. I not only would be severely lacking in sleep and recreation, I would not be getting anything done! Meaning – completed, finished, to-do item checked done. To be interrupted throughout the day by ringing phones with a whole different set of (sometimes random) questions causes me to have to be yanked out of “the zone&# which I consider a dis-service to my clients (my efficiency for them just crashed) and it is certainly taxing on my energy. And trust me – you all want me happy not cranky, right? Why I Generally Prefer DIgital Communication It can be sent and consumed at mutually convenient, self-directed time frames. It can be sent and consumed using mutually convenient, self-directed devices/platforms. It provides a written record; that saves so many brain cells from trying to remember things! That written record lowers error rates and confusion over deliverables. Yes, it takes my billable time to write up the notes – but you are so well-served by my laying things out so clearly for you to consider over time. It can slow down the process, allowing answers to appear without anyone being interrupted. Feelings of urgency are not always accurate. So even though you’ll hear me say, “I get waaay too much email!&# don’t confuse that with “I would SO much rather get a descriptive email with a handy subject than a phone call almost any day!&# Understanding the phone preference Often, people who phone just want an answer to their question now (don’t we all!), or they are not that comfortable with email (join KnowHow Cafe where the smart people come to get smarter), or they don’t want to take the time to write out their question (you’ll be the main beneficiary of doing this!), or they are shielding the conversation specifically from a written record (hehe, no comment). What’s more polite, phone or digital? So while those of you who like to use the phone may consider those of us who don’t answer rude or selfish, here’s an upbeat take on things from Clive: The telephone, in other words, doesn’t provide any information about status, so we are constantly interrupting one another. The other tools at our disposal are more polite. Instant messaging lets us detect whether our friends are busy without our bugging them, and texting lets us ping one another asynchronously. (Plus, we can spend more time thinking about what we want to say.) For all the hue and cry about becoming an “always on” society, we’re actually moving away from the demand that everyone be available immediately. Let’s treat the phone as a really valuable business tool and make appointments for phone calls! We can leverage our powerful connections together IRL to their maximum by using the best tool for the job. Want to talk to me? Just send a quick email with your general topic and list some times you are available. I’ll get back to you. Keep ringing me up and not leaving any details in your voicemail while I am immersed in delivering services to someone else? It could take days to get a response.

The only exceptions are for friends I happen to want to talk to right then (emotional issues, as you mentioned) and clients that I scheduled speaking to or that I need input from at this point in the project I’m working on for them. Video Editing requires me to “live&# in the project, so I can’t afford to be interrupted and pulled out of my immersion. I inform people that they can email me and I’ll get back to them when I get back to them. The other option is Instant Messaging, but that’s again available to clients whose projects I’m currently dealing with AND that I need to hear from in order to move forward with their project. Roxanne Darling August 12, 2010 at 4:51 pm Hey Bill – You don’t listen to your voice mail? That could possibly be explained by our age difference. I hear that about 20 and 30 somethings frequently. That is a little too brave new future for me though I admire you being on IM – I find that just as interrupting UNLESS I am actively collaborating. Then it rocks – being able to share comments and links back and forth as I make things happen in real time. Thank YOU for leaving a real live warm-blooded comment too! Bill Cammack August 12, 2010 at 5:02 pm You’re welcome, Rox. :) To expand on my point, what I do is very “Set it and forget it&#. I need to know what the client wants, arrange to receive the media and then it’s off to the races for me until it’s time for the client to review the project. In between that time, there’s nothing I need to know from them unless there’s a change in the parameters of the job. If there IS a change, that means that I need to have it via email anyway, because talking on the phone wastes even MORE of my time and mental energy as I have to take notes about something that the person could and SHOULD have just typed to me in the first place. I’ll check the email when I come up for air or depending on the situation, I’ll leave my Mail App open and polling every 60 seconds so I can receive correspondence in a timely fashion. The reason I don’t check voicemail is that I don’t offer to anyone to call me on the phone. My friends all know to email, text or IM me. The only reason I would check is if a call came through from a client who had an open project with me, even though I would have explained to them beforehand that for record-keeping purposes AND for them to get the best service from me during their billable hours that they need to email me. On top of that, all of my contact information is on the internet. If you happened upon my telephone number, that means you saw my email address as well and perhaps even my twitter and Facebook links. If someone calls and doesn’t get a response, the intelligent move is to try another avenue instead of banging one’s head against a brick wall and continuing to call and get ignored. :) Roxanne Darling August 12, 2010 at 5:03 pm @ Bill: “If someone calls and doesn’t get a response, the intelligent move is to try another avenue instead of banging one’s head against a brick wall and continuing to call and get ignored. :)&# LOVE IT! Mike Moon August 13, 2010 at 1:40 am I’m on a tight budget, but I still require portable communication to keep in touch with family and friends. So, I signed up for a Pay-As-You-Go phone, with unlimited Text Messages and Internet access for $18/month. Oh sure, I pay through the nose when I make/receive a call … so I don’t! I’ve told everyone not call unless it’s life or death, but feel free to text me until their hearts content. It works very well! Good article. Roxanne Darling August 13, 2010 at 1:06 pm @Mike – Unlimited texting really covers the mark. And when we had our little earthquake here a few years back, phone did not work tho SMS did! Looking at the “emotionally high bandwidth&# cost to phone call interruptions as Clive mentioned, you’ve added context here. Dollars and attention in the mix. Thanks for stopping by. Any more lake walks lately? Lauren Lionheart August 14, 2010 at 2:54 am YES on all accounts! Multi-tasking is a huge killer of productivity. One thing at a time please. I like the perspective that digital communication is more polite AND allows us to stay committed to the task at hand. So true. Thanks for your insight, Roxanne. Peace, Lauren Roxanne Darling August 14, 2010 at 9:33 am @Lauren – I used to think of myself as a queen multitasker – and I can still talk on the phone while doing dishes – but I have always been a big fan of having dedicated time and space to get certain things done. Funny side note – my purse was stolen from my car last night, and sure enough, it had my phone in it. No one will be able to call me until I get that replaced! Sometimes life just cracks me up. LOL. Andrea of Online Marketing Muscle August 19, 2010 at 6:12 pm I don’t answer my phone unless I am expecting an important call. That’s what voicemail is for! I find even more annoying about the phone is call waiting! I have disabled this from all of my phones. Unless it is an emergency I don’t see the reason for it. It is essentially telling the person you are on the line with that “oh, wait, this other call might be more interesting than you!&# :) Maureen Sharib October 4, 2010 at 9:37 pm NEWSFLASH Roxanne, Darling: Customer B doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Customer A. All Customer B wants is your immediate and undivided attention. Letting Customer B know that another customer has priority over them is dangerous business. I have a hard and fast rule for building (and keeping) any type of business: answer your phone. If you don’t want to do it yourself (because it’s so weirdly exhausting) hire someone to do it for you. You’re not going to change (any time soon) human interaction that answers immediate (and sometimes emotional) needs. Consider this a free tip from an old adopter. Roxanne Darling October 14, 2010 at 1:19 pm @Maureen – Thanks so much for adding your opposing view. I do understand that is how many in business think – and emotional desires (I don’t count them as “needs&# ) are important and I do consider them. But I don’t believe in letting others emotional needs dictate business relationships. I prefer to have consciousness in action, and that means both me and my clients occasionally experiencing some short term discomfort for the long term benefit of more efficient work habits and mutual respect! Back before there were no email or numerous other communication channels that exist today, your position would be valid. Today? I think letting other peoples’ perceived urgency interrupt my work for others promotes a needy, inefficient, and immature work place. That’s just my opinion, and I am glad that you have a system that works for you! Aloha, Roxanne Bill Cammack October 14, 2010 at 6:06 pm On top of what Rox just said, each person or company gets to choose how they feel like interacting with their clients. If someone wants to use the phone and I don’t, that’s too bad for them. One of the problems with the phone is you get into arguments about who said what. That’s eliminated with email correspondence because it’s right there in Black & White what you said and what the other person said. Do I miss out on business by not answering my phone? Yes. Am I more efficient with the business I AM doing because I don’t answer my phone? Yes. I’d rather provide value more quickly to my current clients and to myself than to cater to how someone else feels like communicating with me.

Keynote: The Social Web Is More Than Tweets the Eye | Bare Feet Blog

First let me thank Quincy Solano and team from Technology News Bytes and our own Social Media Club Hawaii for creating a high energy event! (You were awesome Tara and Rob – I loved having you there with me.) And check out NonStop Honolulu’s photos from the Tweetup afterwards. And be sure to check out this video interview on KITV from 6:15 am that morning! Mahalo Yasmin Dar. I expected a small percentage of people from “the choir&# in the audience, with the large majority being local businesses – and this turned out to be true. So how can I entertain and keep my peers not just interested, but hopped up and motivated for the rest of the day, while talking as jargon-free as possible to the business managers who gave their precious time to be there? Well, I relied on the tools of our trade , the principles of our practice , and the voices of my peers. Tools of the Trade: Use Twitter. I made sure to put up an advance slide listing my Twitter handle and the hashtag for the day, #HISMS. This allowed people to start interacting even before I came on stage. I was tweeting myself as I was being introduced (by the lovely Ramsay Wharton ) and by sheer, beautiful coincidence, my friend CC Chapman direct messaged me right in that time-space continuum. I clicked “submit&# on my reply to him as I walked up the stairs – telling him I was actually using a video of him in my presentation! That is the “Psychic Friends Network&# for real. Use More Interesting Presentation Tools. I completely understand the comfort and usefulness of having a presentation, but we really can now move beyond the “death by PowerPoint&# type of presentations with too many words at too small a size, and nothing left to the imagination. I built my preso in Prezi – which is like a mind-mapping tool for presentations. The audience loved it and there was an entire side channel happening on Twitter talking about Prezi, among people in the audience as well “out there.&# I love that! Here is the link to my Prezi. Incorporate Rich Media. When I first learned I would have 90 minutes, I mildly freaked out! “I am not going to stand up there and lecture at folks for an hour and a half – we will all be brain dead by 10:30!&# Speakers, I recommend wholeheartedly you resist the urge to feed your audiences facts and figures. Those can be found on Google. Or Hubspot. Instead I used a lot of video. Some from clips I had in my archive from 3-4 years ago, some from YouTube, some new video slide shows I made using photos from HawaiiIRL.com and also from Flickr. Remember, a picture is worth 1000 words, but a video is priceless! Principles of Social Media Practice: Transparency. I showed them my computer, in WYSIWYG fashion – when I goofed on switching applications, I made a manini mistake and they got to watch as I fixed it. That is so much more interesting, in these times, than just trying to be perfect. I also shared my nervousness about using Prezi for the first time to such a large group; I had previously only used it in small, private training programs. Share some of you, your energy, with them. Be real. It’s not as scary as it sounds, and I can tell you, I had as much fun as ever, and experienced a lot less stress. Walk at least as much as you talk. Better yet, dance! (We did. I love music and I love movement, so I shared that part of who I am.) Get People Involved. Disruption is OK. Can you believe we were dancing to a large screen YouTube video of Cheryl Lynn’s, Got to Be Real ? Well, I was, and a few people even joined me! I also stopped between each of my six points…to give people something to do related to the previous point, and give me a minute to check the Twitter stream! Give People an Experience , don’t just talk about the experience. Oh baby we did this! I planted a trick on the audience, to let them know first hand how a social media event is different from your typical conference. (Think disruption, opinions, etc.) Thanks to my colleague, Jesse Stay , we had some drama of the entertaining kind, that was perfectly on point. The Voices of My Peers: Crowd-Sourcing. As I mentioned above under Rich Media, I used video clips I had taken from several of my peers. Why hear just my perspective, when I can bring you the insights of Gary Vaynerchuk , Chris Brogan , Laura Fitton , CC Chapman , my Mom, Blanche Benton , and Bubbe of Feed Me Bubbe ! The cool thing was that those peeps got shout outs too on Twitter from the precious people in my audience. Share My Network With You. I wanted to include the local Hawaii “social media types&# so that the businesses in the audience would start to get to know all of you. Even though I was running out of time, with close to 30 hours into my prep, I put together a brief slide show of some of you – thanks to HawaiiIRL again. This is about real people, not just lists of names somewhere. And of course I included all of my fellow speakers too. Go Outside My Network. I also used videos from YouTube that I found inspiring, most especially the Lost Generation and my new friend, @MermaidKariel. I also shared excerpts from a video from GigOm about how Multitasking affects our brains. The Result? We had a grand time. People left the room highly buzzed and ready to go absorb as much as they could from the other sessions and hallway interactions. I was so happy to receive so much praise – from so many new people as well as from my peers. We do things so often in something of a vacuum – for me, having my colleagues entertained was a very sweet feeling! You can look at the Twestimonials in our sidebar – it shows the tweets I favorited and for which I am so grateful! Here are the presentations from my colleagues that have been posted; I will update as I get more: Dan Zelikman, on Communities and Advertising Andy Beal, on Reputation Management Aloha, Share/Bookmark Thanks for reading!

It’s a hot topic all around, as social media lends itself to some highly unethical practices and characters! The good news though, is that the conversational nature of the social web exposes many of these deliberate and accidental faux pas so the rest of us can learn from them. I thought it would be handy for those of you new to social media ethics to have a glossary of terms and issues that have arisen. As with all good things in life, perfectly reasonable people may disagree! First – The Guiding Principles of Social Media Transparency, Truth, and Trust. Chris Heuer, founder of the Social Media Club, articulated this well here. Be who you are, provide evidence of who you are, respect others and over time you will build trust. Second – Conflicts of Interest As bloggers, podcasters, marketers and PR professionals adopt social media tools and tactics, they are often caught in the middle of problematic situations. You are being paid to represent a client – but what if said client wants you to not be transparent, truthful, or trustworthy? How far will you go and what damage does your brand risk? When you are conversing on social networks, how, what, and when do you disclose your business relationship? Tamar’s post on the Zicam controversy addresses these questions. The conversational web and the laxity of so many rules of the conversation itself along with innovative business practices and well-intentioned attempts to think outside the box sometimes have unintended consequences though. These conflicts are where many of the problems arise. Third – Disclosure Stowe Boyd has identified a rating scale that covers the many combinations and permutations of advisory interest and financial interest. The FTC is looking into the practice as well, as I blogged about here and here. Here’s a good example of a PR professional (Todd Defren) who discloses when he is Twittering on behalf of a client. The Glossary – Add to Your Vocabulary and Your Business Practices Astroturfing - These are blogs deliberately intended to create content that appears to come from a “grass roots&# organization but is actually being produced by a PAC, a PR firm, or some other groups wanting to influence a conversation without admitting their true goals or funding sources. It breaks all three rules, of transparency, truth, and trust. All around bad news. Blogola – like it’s sister payola , it refers to bloggers receiving products and services in exchange for media coverage. It’s also known as Pay-Per-Post , and traditional “fam trips&# for travel bloggers also fall into this category. Well-known and loved blogger Chris Brogan spent far more hours defending his actions than enjoying the $500 shopping trip at K-Mart. He lost some followers too though many said K-Mart was smart to find such a popular person of influence with whom they could spend very little money and gain an incredible amount of publicity. Chris nails the main underlying issue for many bloggers in this statement: By the way, another point on this: I don’t ask you for money. I give you everything for free. Somewhere, I have to make money, or my kids don’t eat. Would you rather I ask you for money? Someone always pays for the meal. Todd Defren has a good summary post on the practice of blogola. The Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) has an extensive code of ethics here. The problem is not the exchange of goods and services for coverage – it is the who, what, how, and when that moves the business relationship from above board to below board. Brand Jacking – This is when an unauthorized person or persons pose as a someone or something they are not. One of the better known cases was “Janet&# who created a Twitter profile for Exxon Mobile. She didn’t last long, as the community questioned her extreme statements and Jeremiah Owyang (a Forrester Analyst) contacted Exxon directly for comment. (I hope you have set up Google Alerts for your brand! If not, go to KnowHow Cafe and get on our mailing list so we can help you.) Character Blogs or Personas - these are blogs that are written by an alias or an obvious person who is not real. My friend Toby Bloomberg created one years ago for one of her clients , though some early bloggers insisted that only real people should have blogs. But there is a business case (and an opportunity to have some fun) for bona fide character blogs. Another colleague, Dave Peck, created the persona of Britney Mason who started as a character in Second Life and took on a life of her own. (This can apply to Twitter and accounts on other social networks as well as on blogs.) On the other hand, Whole Foods CEO really crossed the line by posting on stock message boards under an alias name , attempting to influence the stock price of an acquisition. Flogs – aka Fake Blogs. Walmart and their PR firm Edelman suffered considerably when they pretended to feature two “real people&# Walmarting across America. Edelman was suspended from WOMMA for 90 days and now will not work with bloggers who do not disclose their sponsorships and compensation, regardless of how small it may be. GMOOT - An acronym that stands for “Get me one of those!&# This is the phrase often shouted by CEO’s to their ad and PR agencies , thinking that viral web successes can be pulled out of a tactics and strategy handbook. They can’t – that’s why they are called “viral.&# Money cannot buy you influence on the social web; remember it comes from Transparency, Truth, and Trust. Shill – Direct from Wikipedia : “A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services or a political group, who pretends no association to the seller/group and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage others unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services or support the political group’s ideological claims. Shills are often employed by confidence artists. The term plant is also used. Shill bidding, found on many auction sites such as eBay, is punishable by law and may result in fines and or prosecution.&# See “Astroturfing&# above for more. (Hat tip to Dave in the comments for this one.) Sock Puppets - See the discussion above re: aliases or personas. Sock Puppets are the paid marketers who pose as community members to create content on behalf of a client or their own company. There’s an example here. (Hat tip to Dave in the comments for this one.) Splogs – aka Spam Blogs. Due to the magic of RSS, any creep with a little programming skill can buy hundreds of web domains, put up a quick free blog, and populate them with legitimate content from others (via RSS) then fill them with Google ads and hope people land there and click. Bad news all around. Wikipedia - “Wikipedia’s 13 million articles (2.9 million in the English Wikipedia ) have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world, and almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone who can access the Wikipedia website.&# There is Wikiscanner – A cool tool that discloses who is editing what pages on Wikipedia. By examining data including IP addresses, you can see if companies are the primary (self-interested?) editors of their pages. The Church of Scientology was recently banned from editing any articles on Wikipedia for “repeated and deceptive editing.&# Did I miss one of your favorite social media ethical dilemmas?

Social Media: Making Business Fun Again | Bare Feet Blog

Bare Feet Studios

Home About What We Do PayPal Speaker Contact Subscribe Press / PR Bare Feet Network Internet Literacy for Business: Blogging, Podcasting, Online Video & Social Media Howto, Consulting, Training & Public Speaking Home > Branding , HowTo , Social Media , Strategy > Social Media: Making Business Fun Again Social Media: Making Business Fun Again by Roxanne Darling on September 8, 2010 When speaking to newbies about the what, where, why, and how of social media, I often remark how social media seems to help business people actually have fun again with their business! We all go into business because we like doing something – be it fixing cars, flying planes, making muffins, or creating ad campaigns. But then we get bogged down with hiring and firing, taxes, government regulations, market share, and all matter of other requirements that for many of us are no. fun. at. all. Along comes social media which is so conversational, creative, interactive, mostly free and bam! Business is fun again. Here are a few examples inspiring me today: 1. Star Wars Remake – Crowd-Sourced Edition You know your fans truly love you when they assemble themselves together out of the messy soup that is the internet to create “a shot-for-shot crowd-sourced remake of “Star Wars ,” diced into 15-second segments and re-created, reenacted, reanimated and recontextualized piece by piece by fans from around the world.&# Amazing! Hilarious! Genius! Power to the people! Love in action! You get my point. And for Casey Pugh, you made my day. I had heard about this way back when, and had completey forgotten. Now hop over to www.starwarsuncut.com to watch it, visit the LATimes to read the full story and watch a few clips, and if you are in Honolulu or San Francisco, please drop into Blue Hawaii Lifestyle for a snack and tell Matt Olson “thanks for sharing this story with Rox!&# 2. JetBlue “All You Can Jet&# Pass I heard about this today on the radio at NPR.org. It was literally a 30-day pass , fly as much as you want wherever you want. Similar to what Cathay Pacific has been running for years over there in beautiful Southeast Asia. But now, we have the power of the internet and word-of-mouth marketing by consumers, to consumers, for consumers. Read this (with a British accent) from JetBlue Corporate Commercialization Officer Robin Hayes: “I think it’s fair to say we were gobsmacked with the success of All You Can Jet,&# says Robin Hayes, the airline’s chief commercial officer. “I would describe that as a nonstop party. We had flights with 80, 100 All You Can Jetters on them. I mean it really was 30 days of a very carnival-like atmosphere at JetBlue.&# To add to the carnival-like atmosphere, JetBlue is helping its “Jetters” get organized, with a Facebook page where travelers can make plans to meet up, ask advice, post their personal dos and don’ts, or list their favorites spots. Too bad they don’t fly to Hawai?i… 3. Mailing a Package Becomes a Video Tutorial Shane and I are developing KnowHow Cafe , an online learning community. I save snippets of things all the time, for future Quick Tips and tutorials. One of them relates to how to manage file extensions – a rather boring topic but something that can stop you dead in your tracks if you don’t KnowHow to work around them. My example is the USPS.com website, on a Mac. But then this morning, in real life, Shane comes to me and asks for a mailing label for a package he is sending to his sister in a USPS Priority Mail box. (I love how they give those boxes away!) So we shot a little video, involving him with the box, me with the bathroom scale, and a few screenshots from the usps.com website. The tutorial is coming soon! (Be sure to join our free email list at www.knowhowcafe.com ) It was a lot more fun than just typing up another boring list of how to manage messy file extensions – though we will offer both. David Pogue, at the NYTimes , does a great job on these. He writes a column and he produces a video of same; we subscribe via Tivo and watch it in the living room for entertainment and education! 4. WOMMA Awards Are Looking for Your Story! As head of the local chapter of Social Media Club, I was contacted by Steve Ziemba at WOMMA – the “official&# organization promoting best practices in word-of-marketing marketing, to help spread the word about their current award campaign, the WOMMY Awards. Visit them to learn more here about s ubmitting your example of using word-of-mouth to build your brand – oops! – I mean have fun using social media in your business!

Ash | SEO PPC Blogger September 16, 2010 at 2:24 pm Fun is one of the most motivational activity to be used in social media marketing which most of them ignores! While people/businesses participation in social networks are for their own business sake, it isn’t typically a good way of using social networks.

Executive Overview of Social Media for the C's

That’s shorthand for the CEO, the CFO, the CTO, the CLO, etc. As is standard practice, I do not disclose our consulting clients unless the client wishes to do so. They shall remain anonymous for now. I love doing this type of session – one and half hours of touring the social web and discussing the implications for marketing, customer service, new lines of business, technology, and of course the ever-present legal and HR concerns. Plus I enjoy working with smart people whose questions help me dig into my own background and experience. I am the personality type that actually gets smarter and energized by interacting with others, so you can see why I am drawn to this type of work. In today’s case, the team member who has been implementing the social web assets was also present, adding very relevant information that I did not have regarding the company’s current status. The only thing I forgot was to take my easy button ! I like to share my presentations ; today I created a small Quicktime movie that can be viewed on iPhones and video-enabled devices. I didn’t want to clog the client’s network with a large attachment so I chose to create this post and make the file available for download here, in case any of you readers find it useful. It includes a copy of Eric Qualman’s awesome YouTube video, the Social Media Revolution , which we used to open the meeting. Download my presentation, Social Media: Hidden Pearls or Time Waster? as a Quicktime movie. (28 MB; slides without audio plus the embedded movie) FYI the feedback was awesome. If your company or a company you know if would like to have the business message of social media delivered to your executives, please contact me. I have an ability to converse with strategic thinkers who may not be technical but who desire to be innovators in their organizations and industries. Aloha, Share/Bookmark Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the support and keep up the great work!! Aloha! Erik Qualman Roxanne Darling December 5, 2009 at 8:42 am @Erik Qualman – You are the one I thank! Your video and book have done so much to expedite the conversation. I explained the concept (of creating a CC-licensed informational video that people are encouraged to share to help market your book) when showing it. People are just as surprised about the “copyleft&# concept as they are by the numbers in your video. For me, it is a case study within a case study. And your finding this post also demo’s that you use search alerts effectively from a time and etiquette perspective – two other points I made yesterday. :-) Let me know if you are headed to Hawaii – as head of the Social Media Club chapter, I would be delighted to give you a speaking venue and connect you more personally with the locals. Erik Qualman December 5, 2009 at 10:05 am Hopefully I get to Hawaii again soon – I love that place and I will definitely let you know if that happens!! roxannedarling December 4, 2009 at 5:01 pm Executive Overview of Social Media for the C’s: I had an opportunity to speak with the &#822.
