Social Media Zeitgeist – May 15
This is Volume 3 of my weekly feature to provide the Top Social Media, Strategy, and Fun links to my regular readers. Because this space moves so fast, I wanted to surface great content rather than try to comment on everything. Have a great weekend!
- I love this game…it just took to much time and energy to play. I particularly like Stuart Foster’s first point #1 – Success Requires Constant Dedication – “Your goal should be to turn every article you write into a phenomenon.”
- Even with Wall Street Journal’s content strategy to make people pay, they are not avoiding Social Media. The most interesting point was “Let our coverage speak for itself, and don’t detail how an article was reported, written or edited.”
- Jeremiah Owyang, my favorite analyst, reports on what he’s hearing clients ask about Twitter. What’s interesting is the level of sophistication.
- If you aren’t asking these questions…you’re behind. There are also some great comments that add to the discussion and Jess Sloss of Social Squared answers these questions about Twitter pretty well.
The Dangers of Relying on Your Corporate Network for Social Media Market Research (or SMMR) [Knowledgeistics]
- Knowledgeistics is a blog that links Innovation, Social Media, and Market Research run by friends of mine (Rishu Mandolia, John Rood, and Alex Kemmler) who are strategic thought leaders around merging Social Media and Market Research.
- In this post they surface the Business Week article warning against starting a Corporate Social Network. They highlight the great point that there are reasons for starting a corporate social network but advise us to spend a couple hours thinking about the points raised by Stephen Baker in the article.
- My new favorite photo blog. I have so many of these types of photos that I hope my mother never releases to the public!
