Facebook: Page Browser also anticipate that Page Browser will become a part of the Facebook on-boarding experience for new users. For Facebook, Page Browser is the perfect tool to facilitate new user engagement and ensure that members keep coming back for their Facebook Page activity fix.12The Facebook Like button, launched in April at f8, Facebooks developer conference, is now present on roughly 2 million sites around the web, from sports sites to news organizations and more.Facebook: Like Button

13 average, a Facebook user who likes your content has more than double the number of friends than does a typical Facebook user. This could mean the user is more social or more influential, but on the other hand, it could mean the user is an attention-seeking narcissist. While its fatuous to read too much into that statistic, the number does show that the average liker is more active from a social-web standpoint.An even more interesting stat about the likers is that they click on five times more links to external sites than the typical Facebook user. If clickthroughs are what youre looking for from your social media strategy, this is good news.

16YouTube announced that it has increased its upload limit from 10 minutes to 15 for non-partners.

On the YouTube blog, the video-sharing site explains that its been beefing up its copyright protection tools of late, i.e. the Content ID system (which lets copyright holders have more control over their content). Therefore, its less likely that users can, say, upload large chunks of movies and TV shows without permission.

22With its new interface, the Twitter homepage is now a more logical place to advertise than it was before.

An analytics dashboard: Rolling out starting in Q4, the dashboard will help Twitter users understand how tweets spread and who is spreading them. Twitter: New Interface


I expect Twitter to roll out ad formats that take advantage of the depth of information the new right-side pane provides.23Include KeywordsIf you tweet a link, read everything in it before you submit. Find the important keywords and then write a tweet consisting of those alone.

Addressing Key PeoplePut a cc: at the end of the tweet with your preferred key people mentioned after it.

Brand Your TweetsWhen branding a tweet, you simply make sure that what you tweet also has a hashtag branding on it - 2-3 hashtags max.

25Performance on social platforms should not solely revolve around one negative comment or how many posts are executed. You have to consider the entire social landscape.

Establish your social strategy, including goals and objectives up-front.

All Social Media campaigns must be tracked in order to obtain the most accurate data available for the client.

Populate performance data at the end of every other week

Statistics should also be compared from month-to-month (e.g., subscriptions are up from 90 last month to 100 this month and eventually year over year)

Create a data-driven strategy

2710/14/2010Know your target audienceSome users may think that moderation will censor their comments. If the topics related to your company or industry are particularly controversial, this is an important consideration to plan for.

Check moderation settingsEvery social network is different. Make sure to check how much control you can have over what users post or exactly what theyre allowed to post.

Post your usage policyTell your users the purpose of the page, profile or group. For example: This page is meant to provide product and information updates for the XYZ Company. Any posts that deter from this topic will be removed.
