It’s official – Facebook Reactions has been launched and whether you Like, Love, HaHa, or want to express sadness or anger, there is an emoji for you. But, the big question @kenherron and @linkedinlady will be addressing today on The Social Solutions Show is whether this is good or bad for business marketers.
The Social Solutions Show is not about politics but even we have to tip our hats to the quick action of @realDonaldTrump (or his team) when they scooped up a URL when it expired – which one, you ask? Try jebbush.com. Enough said.
We knew it was coming but it didn’t stop the outrage when Twitter changed the way we receive our tweet feed. Do you care if you see all your incoming tweets or just the ones that Twitter deems important enough for you to see? That starts the Social Solutions Show with @kenherron and @linkedinlady today. But fasten your seatbelt – there’s plenty more! Meet FirstView, the new paid video ad that will appear at the top of your feed (and you can’t turn it off. Bravo Instagram for allowing easy switching between multiple accounts so we can stay connected to friends and business with a simple click. Have you met Amy, your new personal assistant for scheduling meetings? Joining us will be Dennis Mortensen, CEO and Founder of x.ai to explain.
So this Sunday is the biggest sporting event of the year (#SB50) and as a marketer you have a choice. Do you sit on the couch stuffing nachos and wings or do you seize the opportunity to get IN the game and amp up your social media messaging? Today’s Social Solutions Show will give you some tips on how to enjoy this major media event and help your business at the same time. Of course we’ll share our best marketing tips for small business during the Super Bowl as well as how you (yes, you) can do paid advertising during the game. But where should you do it…perhaps mobile…maybe not!
Today’s Social Solutions Show will give you some compelling evidence to boost your pace and get you back in competition. Once we have your attention, we’ll give you some cool tools and techniques to help you on your way. Included the lineup are updates on Adobe Voice, what Pinterest pinners want in 2016, how to deal with negative comments on your Facebook page, why Snapchat should be on your radar screen, and what 70 million users a month on SlideShare know that you don’t.
It was predictable but still disappointing that our hopes for Instagram as the organic platform of choice have been dashed in favor of the well-known Facebook ‘pay for play’ requirement. It’s not all bad news, but it definitely will take some of the fun out of this fast-growing and hugely popular site.
