Notas do Editor
My credentials are ...I am still unworthy!... but I am hoping to draw on the expertise in this room.This follows on from my previous session and I will start with a brief recap to jog memories + add some of the “I wish I’d said that” items.I am using the term social media rather than social networking because we can social network without special tools!
Social media toolsI did a survey. We found that LinkedIn was the most popular, followed by Facebook and Twitter.A few on YouTube, Google+Others have mentioned Yammer, Four Square, blogs and websites.We touched briefly on preventing problems
Reflection 1The thing to remember – social media is about letting people pull information rather than pushing it at them.
ReflectionShare, mention and acknowledge.If you contribute people will find you.
ReflectionLook out for well connected groups/peopleTend to gather round:Events – trade shows etc.Webinar – often have a #hashtag (twitter), facebook and/or linkedIn presence – so if you comment with the appropriate mentionsTwitter chat - #chat2lrn Thurs 16.00Blogs
Social media allows you to follow a general stream with your contacts’ comments. People will also contact you directly through these media either as an individual or part of a group and you need to ‘listen’ to these channels.
Numbers on the top row – show that there is something specifically for you. Similar in Facebook.
No indicatorsI asked a question about making booklets in Word. This went to my 600 + followers. I’m guessing that about 5% (30) saw the tweet of which 3 responded. One response was a retweet, which means that it was seen by another user’s follows – say another 50 saw it. One of these gave a really good answer.Also – Direct messagesCan set up an alert on your mobile phone – good if you are a light user or if, like me, you are not good at remembering to check DMs
Shortly, we are going to do an exercise in which you think about a strategy that might be useful to you. I’ll quickly run through a couple of slides then set you loose.Handout.I feel that we should not be talking about a social media strategy, rather it should be part of a business strategy – e.g. Comms or Marketing. That said, you need to have a reasonable awareness of the tools so you have some idea what is possible.
S “my starting point for a strategy would still have to incorporate learning more and becoming more comfortable with the range of SM options, the likely impact (positive and negative) of each and the ways that will complement and not deflect from my current approach to marketing etc “
ObjectivesRefer to Frances’ USP session.If baby steps – might want to think of one small thing:E.g. - Bringing people to your web site or blog; keeping up with developments; positioning myself in case job goes pear shaped.Understand your audienceIn reality you have multiple audiences – so think about a specific group for a single objectiveWhere is your target audienceIf you don’t know, askConversation might lead to how to add valueTimeThese tools are not free. Most of the people I’ve noticed succeeding are operating in specific time slots. They are likely to be scheduling contributions.
Social media is not just self promotionAbout a quarter self promotion; rest made up of “industry info” and personal.You may wish to consider sharing samples etc. E.g I have put this presentation on Slideshare so others can see it. Do take care with copyright, people’s identities etc.Learning what to doIf you go to shows/conferences to network – you can amplify that by interacting via social media.Beware of ‘experts’ - Learn from what your peers are doing – benefit from their ‘learning out loud’.Some people are forming ‘circles’ that promote each others work – not slavishly – but to enough to make a bigger noise.Consider where you are c.f. your objectivesHave a check point every now and again to see if you are happy with your direction and think about how to build on it.
Make sure you share consciously ...Don’t put anything in social media that belongs in a private channel – e.g. I don’t identify customers – 3 pieces of info can uniquely identify someone or something.Careful about revealing your location.If you switch on an app that makes automatic updates, make a deadline for checking you still want to do this
Various tools : Hootsuite, tweetdeckPuts various social media streams in one placeYou Can send to more that one item at a time.Useful if you miss the Twitter-LinkedIn connection.
Linked In - TwitterNow one-way (LinkedIn to Twitter) only
Twitter to FacebookCan set up a connection between Twitter and FacebookYou will need to give your Facebook details and give permission for the connection.You probably won’t want to share all your tweets in facebook.
If you want to selectively share your tweets – use the app shown here.General rule – if you want to achieve for something just Google it or ask your network.
My ideasLinkedInTwitterI’ve set up a twitter list https://twitter.com/#!/list/WendyTagg/cipdtrainersforumsussex Makes it easy to follow each other

What could go wrong and how can we stop it happening?
This is an example from twitter.How I knew it was spam.They want you to click the link – DON’TAt best an annoying advert. At worst they are trying to hijack accounts.It’s a good idea to check where links go by hovering over them – even if you know the person it came from. They might have been fooled by an intriguing message.If you can, report as spam. Also if a bot follows you, block it.LinkedIn and Facebook – be careful about what you like and/or log into.
Check your settings regularly and stay aware of privacy and security recommendations.Tweetsmarter (beware it promotes apps.) and Facecrooks.
Scroll down the pageTags – keywords, names that help group information together.Can be very helpful but personally I don’t want people tagging me in photos.Tags – face recognitionGoogle+ now had 'Find my face'- finds you in photos and gives you the option to tag.
Useful article from lifehacker:http://lifehacker.com/5854053/how-to-stop-caring-about-trolls-and-get-on-with-your-lifeR__________ mentioned a related issue:“silliness and overblown egos in some postings” – newspaper comments tend to be like disgusted of Tunbridge Wells on acid.
Refer to the groups session (Liz) we had a while back.Try and pick some people that are not like you. In my opinion one of the worst problems of social media is that it encourages ‘herding’ of like-minded people who end up thinking they are right-minded people because they don’t hear a diversity of views.
